Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam0083StardustMemory''[='s=] second opening removes South Burning two episodes before his death.
* ''Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam'' shows off the titular Mobile Suit in silhouette from the very beginning as well as the fact that it's a transforming Mobile Suit.
* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ'' is an odd one as ''none'' of the cast that shows up in the intro shows up until episode 2 as episode 1 is used as a ClipShow.


Added DiffLines:

** Played straight in both ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'' and ''Anime/TenchiUniverse'' as the first opening of the OVA shows off Ayeka, Sasami, Prince Yosho and Ryo-Ohki ship form before their first appearance in episodes 2 and 3 while ''Universe''[='s=] opening shows off all six girls despite taking five episodes to get them all around.

* The main premise of the series ''LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru'' is that of the ''soeur'' ("sister") system: characters choose lower classmen to be their ''Petite soeur''. While the series tries to build suspense as to who will choose who, the opening sequence shows the pairs quite plainly. In the second season, there is supposed to be a rivalry between two of the girls, though we clearly see them as ''soeurs'' in the opening.
** And the fourth season has an additional spoiler ''ending'', since it clearly showcases who Yumi will choose as her ''soeur''.

Added DiffLines:

** Ever since the release of ''Anime/TheLastNarutoTheMovie'' and especially ''Anime/BorutoNarutoTheMovie'', the anime seems to have [[LateArrivalSpoiler dropped any pretense]] of who the OfficialCouple is. Several intros and outros make it blatant that Naruto and [[spoiler:Hinata]] will become a couple.

*** It isn't just Trunks fighting Frieza - it's Trunks ''slicing Frieza in half'', which is part of his death scene.
** Later, in ''Anime/DragonballKai'', the openings spoil numerous things, including the Saibamen, Vegeta and Goku fighting, Namek, Freeza, Goku fighting him as a Super Saiyan, the androids, Cell's forms, several people going super saiyan, and the fights between 17 and Piccolo and 18 and Vegeta. YMMV, given the series' age.

Added DiffLines:

** The Japanese first opening shows Satoshi's Pidgeot fighting a Fearow. His Pidgeotto doesn't evolve until it fights a Fearow, which happens at the end of the first season, which is also the episode where it leaves Satoshi's team.

Added DiffLines:

* The opening of the seventh ''LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai'' film prominently displays Lio's StalkerShrine to Shiki and his drug producing operation, both of which are key reveals. [[DownplayedTrope However]], it's presented in such a stylized manner that most viewers wouldn't pick up on it unless they'd already seen the movie before.

* In the very first episode of ''Anime/CodeGeass'', Suzaku and C.C. are both shot and apparently killed while trying to protect the protagonist. In episode two, Suzaku is revealed to be injured but alive because the bullet hit [[MementoMacGuffin a pocket watch he kept under his uniform as a memento]]. In episode four, C.C. turns out to be fine [[NighInvulnerability despite being shot in the head]]. The surprise is somewhat lessened by each character's prominence in the opening.

* The FirstEpisodeSpoiler of ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack'' is unlikely to come as a surprise if you pay much attention at all to the opening, but it avoids anything more serious since it mostly just consists of Hei looking cryptically BadAss. There is, however, some {{foreshadowing}}, in the form of Amber's silhouette. And that Hei does ''not'' like Amber if you pay attention to his facial expressions in the end.
** The sequel, however, completely averts this and has VERY BaitAndSwitchCredits.

** Meanwhile, ''[[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood]]'''s first opening has three shots of Hohenheim, who, in the manga, doesn't really show up for another 10 volumes. One of the shots is even Hohenheim as a young slave. In their defense, Slave!Hoho is so ambiguous that someone who doesn't already know what it means will probably incorrectly take his appearance as a spoiler that Ed gets his arm back.
*** The first opening also shows the alchemy diagram for human transmutation intact, which is a significant plot point much later in the series. As with Hohenheim's slavery it's ambiguous enough that it's not a major spoiler.

* ''Manga/{{Kekkaishi}}'' does this the other way around, the OP shows the 3 good guys together but in the anime the third person joins up later in the series only to be killed off soon after, surprisingly the OP never changes.

** The second ending to ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'' shows Sora mysteriously absent from his group of friends, spoiling that he's not the cute kid he seems to be before it's actually revealed. It also shows him very angry and disheveled after showing an angry Shun, showing the rivalry the two would have in their match. Finally, it also spoils [[spoiler:Yuto and Yuya fusing together; Yuya would later "absorb" Yuto into him after the latter loses to Yugo.]]
