** The opening of ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003'' spoils that Darius Dun, initially a minor supporting character, is the BigBad (he is seen looming over all the other villains).

[[Administrivia/InternalSubtrope A variation]] is where an [[TheUnseen unseen character]] or actor is [[{{TheFaceless}} kept hidden]] [[ToBeContinued until the next installment]], yet credited in the ClosingCredits. Another variation is where vaguely famous names appear in the credits, so [[NarrowedItDownToTheGuyIRecognize you can guess automatically that they're going to be fairly prominent in the episode before they even show up]]. In series with recurring characters that are not normally in the credits or a [[TheBusCameBack cameo from someone who left the show]] this can indicate their eventual presence in an episode ruining their unexpected entrance. These variants are often {{Enforced|Trope}} by the certain rules of Actor UsefulNotes/{{Unions|InHollywood}},[[note]]specifically, who can appear where in the credits[[/note]] [[http://www.midwinter.com/lurk/guide/098.html as noted by]] Creator/JMichaelStraczynski. DeadStarWalking can be either a straight-playing or an aversion of this subtrope, depending on how it's presented.

Added DiffLines:

* The second intro for ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' shows Connie wielding Rose's sword, spoiling that she'd be trained as a sword fighter (which happens in the intro's debut episode) and spoiling that she'd eventually have [[ChekhovsGun that sword]] (which happens ten episodes later).

** An interview that played before the Insider Access to ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut'' event spoiled Bing Bong's death when talking about how his voice actor cried saying "Take her to the moon for me...okay?". What's even worse is that the '''trailers''' for the event spoiled some parts of the end of the film, including the scene where Joy runs through Imagination Land, the scene where Anger puts in the idea for Riley to run away and the scene where Joy and Sadness splat onto the window of Headquarters after Fear says "I wish Joy was here!"
** Thankfully, this is less frequent as it was before now, possibly due to the complaints they've received. Many events nowadays either put the bonus content after the movie (such as Doctor Who and The Iron Giant), use clips that don't spoil much of the movie (such as TeamHotWheelsOriginOfAwesome, which used clips from the first 20 minutes, which were already available for free on YouTube), use no clips at all (Some examples include the 2015 showings of The Wizard of Oz and Film/{{Grease}}, which had introductions by TCM hosts that don't spoil the film.

Added DiffLines:

* The opening pages of ''Webcomic/ReversedStar'' show Icaruss and Evangeline fighting together in a war, which makes the fact that he will eventually reach her a ForgoneConclusion. Most of the dramatic tension instead comes from how he does it, and how he and Evangeline become the people that they are by that point.

** An alternate opening narration for the first episode averts this trope, as it gives more information on the war and the Avatar but doesn't mention Aang. Before long, though, the opposite problem develops, as the narration becomes wildly outdated by the end of season 1.
