* The ''Pure White Glastonberry Extreme'' segment of NoMoreheroes does this, coming out of nowhere, having no significance to the plot, just something Travis did with his time on the way to a ranking battle.

* ''VideoGame/XenoGears'' sparked something of a tradition in the Xeno series of having the first scenes take place long before the plot of the games themselves, with the connection only being revealed much later on. In this game's case, the opening scene is of a ship that is taken over by a mysterious force that prompts the captain to self-destruct it. A couple scenes later, we're introduced to a painter in a backwater town living peacefully, and [[DoomedHometown things pick up from there.]] While the ship ''is'' relevant to the game's overall plot, the actual relevance isn't explained until much later, and only a couple of the characters from it reappear at all.

* There are two moments in ''Videogame/MarioAndLuigiSuperstarSaga'' in which Mario and Luigi are separated and one of them must go through an obstacle course resembling a traditional 2D Mario platformer, looking out for Sparkies and spikes along the way. It is very worth your time to do this: completing Mario's course gives him a piece of equipment that makes his jump attacks go faster, and completing Luigi's course grants a Golden Mushroom, one of the best healing items in the game.

* ''VideoGame/UltimaVIII'' is totally different from his predecessors: in addition to being DarkerAndEdgier, it's far more "arcadey" in style (jumping puzzles are very common), is set in a completely different world (Pagan instead of Britannia) without the usual magic system, the Virtues are not present, and the Avatar is alone, without his usual TrueCompanions.
