Added DiffLines:

* Each individual case in the ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' series opens with a brief prologue, either depicting the murder the case centers around or some other event relevant to the case at hand, [[SpoilerOpening nearly]] always in such a way as to keep the player guessing.

* ''{{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.

Added DiffLines:

* Frequently played with on ''WebVideo/UltraFastPony''. The teaser in "Stay Tuned" is framed like a PreviouslyOn segment in a cop show [[SomethingCompletelyDifferent the show is suddenly parodying]] and takes up most of the episode's runtime. In "Forgettershy", the teaser keeps going because the characters forgot to do the intro sequence, leading to them sticking the theme song in the middle of the climax when they finally remember. "I am Pinkie" probably sets the record for the shortest teaser ever, lasting only ''three seconds''.
-->'''Pinkie:''' Twilight, can I ask you a question?\\
'''Twilight:''' No!\\
'''Theme song:''' ''[[BlatantLies Frieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeends!]]''

* ''{{UFO}}'' uses a variation in which the opening theme tune montage plays ''without titles''. This is then followed by the opening scene, which ends with the title logo appearing as an animated overlay. The cast and production credits appear as captions in act one. One reason for this may have been the show's rotating cast, meaning that they couldn't use credits with a fixed cast list.

* ''TheCosbyShow'' had only one for "Same Time, Next Year" where Olivia came into Cliff's bedroom wearing a Bart Simpson mask (a TakeThat to the show's ratings battle with ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' on Thursday nights).
* ''BoyMeetsWorld'' used this once, in Season 5's "No Guts, No Cory" by playing the opening titles after the setting had shifted from 1997 to December 9, 1941 & Mr Feeny had made the anouncement that Pearl Harbour had been bombed. The episode itself was part of a crossover between the TGIF shows in which ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'''s Salem had swallowed a ball that sent the to a different time period, and proceeded to run amok by heading to the other shows in the line-up.

* ''TheGeorgeLopezShow'' had some epically long teasers, to the point where you would get to what would seem like a logical point for the first act break, only for the show to cut to the title sequence.

* {{Series/Monday Night Raw}} has occasionally opened with a teaser, before jumping into the title sequence. Monday Nitro, by contrast, seemed to do it every other week for awhile. Particularly when the nWo storyline was running.
