Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_3'); })Most stories take a while to build up, as they first introduce you to the characters, the world, and the theme, giving them time to develop in your mind before things start to change and become exciting.
Of course, this means that beginnings are often boring. It's been said that if you miss the first 15 minutes of a movie, you're not missing anything, as the plot doesn't pick up until later anyway. Many writers are aware of this, and their way of dealing with it is sometimes to do an Action Prologue.
An Action Prologue starts off with something exciting happening immediately. Right at the beginning, the hero is sneaking around an enemy base, being menaced by a threat, or something similarly exciting. In some cases this is foreshadowing. The event may be a minor one, but related to a major plot point that we don't discover until much later. It could be a dream sequence, where the hero sees something threatening that later shows up for real. It could be the Establishing Character Moment for our badass Action Hero. Or it could be something completely unrelated to the main plot at all, used only to make sure that something exciting happens right at the start.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_2'); })In any case, the action quickly falls right after the Action Prologue, and then those usual first 15 minutes used to flesh out the story and introduce the characters show up. Often overlaps with How We Got Here when it shows off an action-packed scene from the end of the story before jumping to an earlier point in time to explain how the characters ended up in that scenario. War Was Beginning is a specific subtrope.
Compare Batman Cold Open, which illustrates a character's skills at the beginning of a story; and Danger Room Cold Open, which demonstrates the skills of a team. Contrast Prolonged Prologue, which is what happens when you drag it out too much, as well as Slow-Paced Beginning where the work slaps you from the start with exposition... and more exposition... and still more exposition... It can happen that the Action Prologue is cut short and revealed not to have been really happening; that's a Fake Action Prologue.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_1'); })A form of The Teaser, often In Medias Res. Also known as a "Bond Opening Sequence", since James Bond uses it so much. Not to be confused with Action-Hogging Opening, which is where the out-of-plot opening sequence rather than the first part of the plot proper is unusually intense.

Othello, it its operatic adaptation by Giuseppe Verdi and Arrigo Boïto, opens on the Thunderous Confrontation of a battle at sea, in which the title character ultimately proves victorious. The battle takes place offstage, but that doesn't prevent the orchestra and chorus from working themselves into a highly agitated state, or a full panoply of stage effects (some of them rhythmically notated in the score) from being deployed.

Some of the James Bond games. Everything or Nothing actually started you right in the first level, without giving you a menu or anything like it before.
007: From Russia with Love also did this.

Most of the Uncharted games open with a very brief, enigmatic cutscene and then some kind of balls-out action sequence.
Uncharted: Drake's Fortune opens with Nate and Elena unearthing Sir Francis' journal in the middle of the ocean, when suddenly, pirates attack and the player has to defend the boat.
Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception opens with a bar brawl in an English pub populated by Mooks, after a deal goes bad. It's a great excuse to teach the player the new unarmed combat system.
Uncharted 4: A Thief's End begins with Nate and his brother Sam running away from mooks in a boat during a heavy storm. Nate then have to defend their exposed position when the boat broke down.

The first episode of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood mostly exists to start off the series with something that wasn't seen in the 2003 anime adaptation. However, the events are integrated into the story of Brotherhood, even though they don't happen in the manga, and some parts serve as major foreshadowing.
The Movie for the 2003 anime opens with a story about the Elric brothers fighting a Mad Physicist who invented a new type of bomb, which turns out to be a story told by Edward to Alphons Heiderich, Al's alternate world counterpart about his life before he was sent there. This is later used for an And the Adventure Continues ending, as Ed and Al learn that the bomb accidentally ended up in the other world and go to track it down.

Modern Warfare:
The first game's prologue, "Crew Expendable", is a fast close-quarters battle, in contrast to "Blackout", the first plot mission, which is relatively quiet.
Modern Warfare 2 has "Team Player", a fast-paced assault on an Afghan town held hostage by the Taliban (*ahem*...the "OpFor"). It has nothing to do with the main plot, but it shows Private Allen's regular grind as an Army Ranger before he's recruited into the CIA for his special mission in Russia.

Assassination Classroom kicks off with the entire class whipping out firearms and opening fire on their teacher, Koro-sensei, who has walked into the room to take attendance. Koro-sensei casually dodges every single bullet as if nothing out of the ordinary was happening.

The latter three Saints Row games each have one of these.
Saints Row 2 has the Boss escaping from jail, having spent the past five years — from the boat explosion at the end of the first game to the present — in a coma.
Saints Row: The Third has the Boss, Shaundi, Johnny Gat and Josh Birk performing a botched bank robbery. The bank's opulence compared to other buildings of its type marks it as one owned by the Syndicate, the game's antagonist faction. Surprisingly, Josh — the only one who hadn't robbed a bank before at this point — was the only one concerned by the bank's aesthetic enough to be suspicious.
Saints Row IV has the Boss in a military operation to kill Cyrus Temple, the now-disgraced former leader of the STAG military group from the previous game. By doing this and making use of their relative "hero" status, the Boss uses it as a stepping stone to obtain the Presidency, setting the scene for the rest of the game.

River City Ransom: Underground's prologue acts as a flashback to the original River City Ransom. Taking place in the original game's final area, River City High, the player is put in the shoes of young Ryan or Alex and then goes through a Boss Rush of all of the original game's bosses, after which there is a Time Skip of 25 years and the game's plot begins properly.

Charby the Vampirate's prologue is set in the 1600's wherein Charby escapes from a pirate ship, has his throat torn out by a sadistic vampire, returns as a vampire himself, kills a giant bear and returns to the pirate ship to slaughter his lifelong tormentors. The story then jumps forward over 300 years to 1994 to start the actual tale of the comic.

Pretty much universal in James Bond movies. Sometimes the initial action sequence has no relevance at all to the main plot, and sometimes they turn out, sometimes only towards the end of the film, to have been important to it. Subverted as early as the second film, From Russia with Love, in which the Action Prologue turns out to introduce The Dragon rather than Bond.

X-Men Film Series:

X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The pre-credits prologue is a flashback of the main character's childhood, while the credits sequence is a montage of Wolverine and Sabretooth taking part in battles through the ages.

Soldier of Fortune II's prologue mission throws you almost straight into the fray, with Mullins rescuing Dr. Ivanovich from a heavily-guarded hotel in Prague, then escaping with him across the countryside to a train station.
The first game also had an action prologue with a hostage situation in a New York subway, giving a sneak peak of one of the main villains at the end.

Berserk is a extreme example: it starts with a two and 2/3 volumes of story to establish the setting and then has a twelve volume flashback before reaching the point of time when it started. The anime follows suit with its first episode (basically a shortened version of the first chapter without Puck), then ends in a way that could not possibly lead to said prologue.

The Dirty Pair movie (better known as Project Eden) takes this all the way into a full Pastiche of James Bond films, starting with an equivalent of the Bond Gun Barrel and ending with a Design Student's Orgasm credits sequence the Bond films could be proud of.

Each of the three films in The Expendables franchise opens with one, each more epic than the last:
The first film opens with a stand-off between the titular team and some Ruthless Modern Pirates holding a crew hostage.
The second film opens with the team storming a military controlled town in their customized Awesome Personnel Carrier to rescue client, before making a daring escape via zip-lining on some power lines while firing at enemies on the ground, followed by half of them hopping on some stashed jet-skis and getting into a chase on a river while Barney and Christmas bring grab their plane, before finally hopping on the plane and blasting through a bridge full of enemies and anti-aircraft guns, and having to try to get airborne before they crash into an oncoming dam.
The third film opens with them flying up in a helicopter to storm a heavily armed military-prison train and rescue an old comrade of Barney's, before it reaches prison. Said old comrade, instead of just going with his rescue party, high jacks the train and its main gun to destroy the the approaching prison before they go.

Bayonetta begins with our antiheroine and Jeanne in their flashback garb fighting angels on the face of a falling clock. It might be a clever symbol for a compressed backstory narration, but it's hard to tell when the actual game is so trippy. Despite the game's reputation for putting some of the most spectacular fights in cutscenes, it's fully playable, with no control guidance for first-time players, but also no way to lose. Then, there's a whole prologue chapter, filled with control tutorials and some minor exposition. Then there's an expository cutscene and an Indy-style travel montage. Then the opening tiles play as 'netta struts off the train in Vigrid.

Far Cry 3 seems to start in the traditional "introduction of the characters" sense, but within two minutes, you discover that you've been captured by pirates that are not at all friendly, you and your older brother break out, sneak around the base looking for an exit, and then your brother gets shot and you're running for your life through a dark jungle, chased by guys with guns, dogs, a bear and a helicopter. Only once this sequence ends does the game take on a less edge-of-your-seat-action stance.
Far Cry 1's first level, despite being a tutorial, is surprisingly action-packed and difficult.

The Star Trek films tend to do this. It was especially notable in the first one, where the prologue turns out to be the most action-oriented part of the whole movie.
The 2009 film opens with the destruction of the U.S.S. Kelvin..
The opening sequence of Star Trek Into Darkness set on Nibiru shows the Enterprise on an action-packed away mission unrelated to Harrison's attacks.
Star Trek: The Motion Picture opens up with a squadron of Klingon battlecruisers getting in a (losing) fight with V'Ger, as a Federation listening post eavesdrops some distance away and passes word of it back to Earth.
Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan Meanwhile has Enterprise, under the command of Saavik, get into a space battle with three Klingon battlecruisers while attempting to aid a crippled ship in the Neutral Zone. After most of the bridge crew is killed, it is revealed that this was an Unwinnable Training Simulation.
Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country kicks off with a moon violently exploding, with the Starship Excelsior getting briefly caught in the Planar Shockwave.

Final Fantasy VI may start with an Opening Scroll and cutscene, but immediately throws you into battle without really knowing who you are fighting against, who you are fighting for, or who you are supposed to be.

Raiders of the Lost Ark has the golden idol retrieval, consisting of Indy being hunted by the natives, the iconic temple scene (which created the Indy Escape), and the first confrontation with Belloq.
Temple of Doom has the skirmish in Shanghai with Indy, Willie, and Short Round escaping Chinese gangsters.
The Last Crusade has Young Indy stealing an artifact from a gang of grave robbers, who give chase in and around a moving train.
The fourth movie, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull has the only one connected to the main plot, where the protagonists are kidnapped by Soviet agents and are instructed to search a Secret Government Warehouse for a mummified corpse taken from a suspected alien crash.

It's not strictly an "action-packed" movie, but Purple Rain gets off to quite a heady start. Director Albert Magnoli literally does not waste even one second plunging us into the story: the Warner Brothers studio logo has not even faded from the screen yet before the strains of a synthesizer played by "Doctor Fink" (a character in the movie) are heard in the distance and the voice of the (yet unseen) master of ceremonies at the First Avenue Nightclub is heard calling out: "Ladies and gentlemen...

Gladiator begins in the Marcomannic Wars with a battle between Roman legions and German barbarians. Given how the film plays out, and the fact that the Emperor berates Commodus for missing "the entire war", this may be the final battle near the Tisza river, where the Romans beat the Marcomanni into signing a peace treaty.

The Chase (1994) is pretty much lock, stock and barrel Jack Hammond's kidnapping of Natalie Voss and his attempt to escape to Mexico. Roughly 90 percent of the movie takes place on the freeway or just alongside it, and the director wastes no time whisking us right into the thick of it: from the very moment the screen fades in, we can already hear the wail of police sirens in the distance as Jack enters the convenience store looking for a hostage, and spots Natalie.

Pibgorn's arcs start this way, but they're so confusing they're pretty much Mind Screw prologues. For example, the latest arc began with a Rapunzel Haired Pibgorn messing around with dewdrops in a meadow, with the panels interrupted by a giant rack-focused number 8 on a plain white background out of nowhere. It then switched to short-haired Pibgorn and Drucilla talking on a glacier (Rapunzel-Hair Pib is a flashback). Pib suddenly fainted then attacked Drucilla who fought back, and then the giant 8 explodes in a shower of Photoshop brushes.

Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, which could rightfully be called a massive Affectionate Parody to 60s and 70s spy movies, pulls an exceptionally well executed one, though it takes up to an hour. You overpower the guards, get the captured scientist, and make it back to the extraction point where Snake gets betrayed, thrown of a bridge, and as he pulls himself out of a river, the enemies detonate a nuke some miles in the distance. And as the explosion fades, you get the extremely bond-like actual opening.

Then, as a distraught Sarah watches, the nuclear holocaust begins, burning everything around her and revealing the Terminator's terrifying endoskeleton... and she wakes up. This all happens before the title even shows up onscreen.

Final Fantasy:
The very first Final Fantasy begins with the Heroes of Light tasked with rescuing the Princess of Cornelia from the dreaded Garland. The title screen for the game doesn't appear until after Garland has been laid low.
Final Fantasy II begins with a Hopeless Boss Fight.
Final Fantasy VI may start with an Opening Scroll and cutscene, but immediately throws you into battle without really knowing who you are fighting against, who you are fighting for, or who you are supposed to be. Which does a pretty fine job of setting up the initial situation of the game's main character before she gets freed.
Final Fantasy VII starts you off in the middle of a raid to blow up one of the evil corporation's Mako reactors.
Final Fantasy X begins with the destruction of Zanarkand.
Final Fantasy XII begins with you, Reks, on a mission to save the king from assassins. Then you die, and take control of his little brother Vaan two years later.
Final Fantasy XIII begins with the main characters escaping from the Purge and fighting the Sanctum's soldiers.
Final Fantasy XIII-2 may well top them all: it begins with Lightning engaged in battle with the Big Bad. After the epic opening movie, you're thrust into a battle with Chaos Bahamut. As Lighning riding Odin. This is the tutorial!!
Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII continues the trend by starting off with Lightning crashing a party at the Patriarch's Palace in Yusnaan and then chasing Snow through the building.
Final Fantasy XV kicks off with an older looking Noctis in royal garb alongside his comrades engaging an imposing fiery giant sitting on a throne in a How We Got Here situation. The next scene is a younger looking Noctis and his friends pushing their car to the nearest gas station.
Final Fantasy Tactics begins with the kidnapping of Princess Ovelia, which kicks off most of the plot proper. At this point, only Ramza is under your direct control, sporting the most basic job class and abilities, but it gives you a preview of several more powerful attacks and classes that you won't actually gain control of yourself until much later.

The Avengers begins with the Big Bad popping up to steal the MacGuffin, fighting several government agents in the process before leading into a car chase. This is before the title even appears onscreen.
Avengers: Age of Ultron opens with the team battling HYDRA and Baron von Strucker, before moving onto the main plot after the opening credits.
Captain America: Civil War opens on one of the Winter Soldier's missions back in 1991 before so much as the Marvel logo appears. Then it moves on to a second prologue of the Avengers in action.

Ace Attorney has a prologue in every case, usually showing the actual murder from a perspective which leaves the player enough in the dark to not get spoilered.
In 1-1, we see Frank Sawhit murder Cindy Stone. Bonus points in that in the first few seconds of the franchise, we see a woman on the floor with a massive amount of blood seeping out of her head on screen, and we never see more blood at any point in the series.
In 1-2, We see Redd White committing the murder. Two cases in a row and we see the true killer's face.
In 1-4, we see the fake murder of Robert Hammond.
In 1-5, we see two people stabbing a knife into a body.
2-1 shows Phoenix being knocked unconscious with a fire extinguisher.
In 2-2, there's a car accident, a fire, and Maya in the detention center again, telling Phoenix she killed somebody. It also spoils the entire case.
In 3-2 gives us Mask*DeMasque stealing something.
In 3-3 we see somebody with Phoenix's silhouette poisoning somebody's coffee.
In 3-5, We see some awesome animated lightning and the corpse, even though the player meets the victim later and it's obviously the corpse in the prologue.
In AAI1-1, we see the murder and victim have a conversation and Edgeworth is held at gunpoint soon after.
In AAI1-2, Edgeworth has the pleasure of discovering the body and promptly getting accused of the murder.
In AAI1-3, we see the continuation of the ending of the last case. Edgeworth is playing ransom delivery boy and manages to get kidnapped.
In AAI1-4, we get Courtroom Antics were the witnesses accuses the prosecutor of being the real murderer.
In AAI1-5, we get to see the embassy burn and various spottings of the Yatagarasu.
In AAI2-1, we get a press-conference being derailed by an assassination attempt.

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring starts with the Battle of the Last Alliance not only because it was establishing the backstory, but because Peter Jackson felt that the movie needed an epic battle scene with armies at both sides, not just the Fellowship vs. dozens of Orcs.
The Two Towers starts with Gandalf's fight with the Balrog, continuing from their encounter in The Fellowship of the Ring. This not only serves as a way to re-orient audiences back into Middle-earth, but also foreshadows the return of Gandalf.

The first few minutes of Sukasuka flash-forward to a seemingly hopeless battle against the 17 Beasts. The Last Stand defense of the airship, coupled with copious amounts of blood and violence, contrasts with the more light hearted scenes later in the episode. It’s one of the first signs that the cute exterior of the series won’t last very long.

Witch Hunter Robin starts off with a mission by the ultra-tech team of super-powered witch-hunters, and the rest of the first episode is introducing their little circle to the audience. And the title character isn't even fully introduced until the second episode!

Vindictus begins with a siege on a bell tower against a giant spider. The Oracle, Tieve, wants to talk to the spider and find out why it's so frightened, so a group of soldiers, including you, are assigned to escort her to the top. Everyone is promptly ambushed by Gnolls after the leader of the soldiers finds a Fomorian Emblem, and everyone except you and Tieve are wounded or killed. The game then gives you control of your character and walks you through the combat system as you kill your way through the Gnolls and escort Tieve to the top of the tower, where you have to fight the spider as ballista spears rain down on the roof.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The pre-credits prologue is a flashback of the main character's childhood, while the credits sequence is a montage of Wolverine and Sabretooth taking part in battles through the ages.

Many entries in the Assassin's Creed series open like this, with the character having access to weapons, skills and life meter that are lost at the end of the level and then laboriously reclaimed over the course of the game.

The first episode of Gravity Falls features Dipper and Mabel crashing through a billboard in a golf cart as they try to escape from a mysterious, gigantic monster. The rest of the episode is dedicated to explaining the circumstances that led them into that situation.

Starship Troopers — an influential work of science-fiction considered responsible for popularizing Death from Above, Powered Armor, Space Marine, and many other tropes the Halo games and novels are entirely built on — starts with a textbook Action Prologue, taken from about the middle of the story. Later in the book the protagonist mentions that the very enemies they were fighting in said prologue have switched to being co-belligerents in the war against the Bugs; the opening engagement may have contributed to this Heel–Face Turn.
