    Jack Sparrow in all three pirates, but especially the first one
    Indiana Jones in raiders. His entrance in Crusade is great too.
    Batman in Batman Begins (for me seeing what it took to become Batman made this greater than Batman's entrance in Burton's film. In Batman 89 when he says "I'm Batman", I think "that's cool!" When He says "I'm Batman" in Begins, it makes me go "F**K YEAH!"

    That wasn't his introduction though.

    The one that immediately came to mind when i saw this thread title was Indy in Raiders, easily the #1 IMO.

    I'd give it to Robocop. His whole introduction is a big tease. Your first look at his face is on a monitor that's recording him. Then you see his figure walking past the murky glass in the police station. Then behind his cage. Every cop in the building following him the whole time. Classic scene.

    And I guess I'll be the one to throw up the obvious Nightcrawler intro. Still the best action sequence in the history of comic films for me.

    Ahh, my bad. I got confused. My favorites are:

    - Nightcrawler's attack on the White House in X2
    - The diner scene in Reservoir Dogs
    - Jules Winnfield and Vincent Vega's intro in Pulp Fiction

    That was really badass. Gotta be number one. I also liked Buzz Lightyears intro in Toy Story and Keizer Sose's intro (as Kevin Spacey) in The Usual Suspects. Frank Drebbin's intro in The Naked Gun was great, too.
