* ''Series({{ER}}'s'' cold openers generally focus on interpersonal ties (more than the hustle and bustle of the meat of the show could, anyway). A 12th season episode, "The Gallant Hero & the Tragic Victor", actually kills off a main character in the teaser.

* All forms of UK ''BigBrother'' [[SpinOff Spin Offs]] had some cold open element- notably in the case of ''Big Mouth'' where that episode's guests would usually be introduced in some nonsensical-[[OnceAnEpisode but-consistent]] fashion.

** Also, ''VideoGame/TalesOfMonkeyIsland'', developed by [=LucasArts=] and TelltaleGames, is the first game in the ''VideoGame/MonkeyIsland'' series to have playable cold openings in five chapters... sort of. Chapter 1, for example, has a playable intro that can be accomplished with help from instructions before the main title starts. Chapter 3 has a VERY long playable cold opening consisting of a few tasks and an "Answer the question" minigame before the chapter's title starts. Chapter 4, on the other hand, only has the shortest playable cold opening, where you only have to select a topic before the chapter's title starts.

* ''Film/WarCraft2016'' opens with a scene of a faceless human and an equally faceless orc in a DuelToTheDeath by the Portal. The rest of the movie is pretty much one big HowWeGotHere, although the scene is never revisited.
