** ''Shippuden'' opening 15 trumps all previous examples. It shows the resurrected Jubi, Naruto cradling Neji's body and Hinata crying (then Naruto and Hinata following hands), followed by a montage of Kakashi fighting an unmasked Obito, as well as Hashirama fighting Madara, and even Hashirama and Madara as children. Also depicted are the four resurrected Hokages, and Naruto and Sasuke seemingly fighting together - hinting at Sasuke's HeelFaceTurn. Taking it UpToEleven is a shot of Might Guy looking to be undergoing a power up, hinting at a certain subsequent manga development, and the final shot even shows Obito as the Ten-Tails' Jinchuriki.
** 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.

** The fourth does the exact same thing, spoiling Laxus turning against the guild, Gajeel returning as an ally, and austute viewers will note that Mystogan has the same hair and eye color as Jellal.

* The opening for the second season of ''Anime/Jormungand'' has flashes of all of the team members, including [[spoiler:R standing in front of a grave, holding a bottle of liquor up to the camera. You later realize it's his grave, and the bottle is the one Koko leaves for him.]]

* To the astute viewer, the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SIF5BLyh3Mk upbeat, cartoony intro of]]'' Manga/{{Narutaru}}'' (seemingly a case of CoversAlwaysLie) actually gives away some important parts of the plot - like Akira's [[FaintingSeer uncommon connection with her Dragon]], Aki being an AlphaBitch, Hiroko being bullied by Aki and her GirlPosse, [[spoiler: Oni as Hiroko's Dragon]] and [[spoiler: the Virgin Princesses]]. [[RefugeInAudacity Not that anyone would believe it unless told]].

** Well, except for the whole 'Shiina turning into a {{kaiju}} and [[TheTokyoFireball destroying Tokyo]]' part. Which was kind of a pity. That part actually does contain a spoiler from the manga, although the anime ended before Shiina was vaporized when a nuclear missile exploded.

* ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure''
** The first opening ''shows'' major events in Phantom Blood: Erina being kissed by Dio, Jonathan's fistfight against Dio triggering the Stone Mask, the BigBad being shot at by the policemen with an image of Jonathan holding his father's corpse, etc.
** The opening of Battle Tendency spoils Caesar's death. Specifically the part where Joseph ties Caesar's headband around his head while crying, and Caesar's last Hamon bubble (the bloody one). Kars' eventual immunity to sunlight is also foreshadowed, albeit more subtly since the shot of the sun rising behind his back is only a split second long. Some shots in the opening also foreshadow Joseph's stand for a split-second.
** The first opening for the ''Stardust Crusaders'' anime shows Kakyoin and Polnareff fighting as part of the group, even though they initially appear as antagonists; additionally, during the shot of five stars shooting towards Dio's lair, a sixth one joins the group, foreshadowing SixthRanger Iggy. The second opening shows, although much faster, shots mirroring those just before the deaths of Avdol and Kakyoin, as well as the near-death of Joseph, and is replete with clock/gear imagery representing the fact that Dio's Stand can stop time. And there are ''many'' more split-second ones, such as Jotaro's hand moving during Dio's time stop and the World appearing in Star Platinum's reflection.
** The opening for Diamond is Unbreakable likewise shows Okuyasu standing alongside Josuke, Koichi and Jotaro in spite of being introduced as an antagonist.
** Diamond Is Unbreakable's second opening spoils the appearance of Echoes Act 3 and Yoshikage Kira's status as the BigBad, along with showing a massive wound on Arnold's throat.
