* ''Franchise/AceAttorney''
** Normally the only cases that take place entirely as trials are the first case of the game with the others having investigation segments; Case 4 of the third game also takes place entirely as a trial.
** Case 2 of the third game features you defending a client of theft in the first trail; a murder is not committed until the second trial.
** "Dual Destinies" Case 4 is one of the most unique in the series. It begins with a trial instead of an investigation and this trial is interrupted by the events of a completely different case (namely the bombing that occurred in the first one) meaning the days of the case are not consecutive. Additionally the case ends with [[spoiler: your client been found not guilty instead of finding the real killer.]]
** Case 5 of "Dual Destinies" only has one investigation and trial segment and the case involves [[spoiler: finding the real killer of Case 4.]]
** "Dual Destinies"'s DLC case [[spoiler: has no murder. All deaths are accidental. Also the client changes mid way through.]]

* ''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.
