* Conversations with NPCs in ''VideoGame/DragonBallXenoverse2'' will explain what happened to the HubWorld of ''VideoGame/DragonBallXenoverse'' and how it was replaced with the current one. You'd probably forget to even find them more or less know there was a story behind it.

* The manual for Creator/SidMeier games, particularly the original ''[[VideoGame/SidMeiersPirates Pirates]]'', [[ShownTheirWork are loaded with historically-accurate details]] about the era you're playing, including Silver Train and Treasure Fleet routes, information on known pirates of the era, detailed notes on the cities, and commentary on the accuracy (or lack thereof) of the era's firearms! ''Pirates!'' used the historical data(ironically) an anti-piracy technique. In the first game, you were asked about the routes of the Treasure Fleet and Silver Trains when arriving in port. In ''Pirates Gold'', in your first confrontation with another ship, you would be shown a flag and asked to identify the famous pirate that it belonged to. These pirates, and their flags, were only ever shown in the manual. In either game, if you answer incorrectly, the game quickly becomes {{Unwinnable}} as you will never find any other ships at sea.

* With the advent of the ''VideoGame/DeusEx Universe'', an Expanded Universe initiative that encompasses comics, tie-in games and books, a large chunk of background information about what characters were doing between games is this:
** Want to know why Dr. Markovic is missing from the LIMB Clinic during your second visit to Detroit in ''VideoGame/DeusExHumanRevolution''? It's only answered in the tie-in comic series.
** Alex Vega's appearance in ''VideoGame/DeusExMankindDivided'' can come off as jarring to players who haven't played the tie-in (formerly tablet) game ''VideoGame/DeusExTheFall'' or read the ''Hard Line'' novella (which explains how she met the Juggernaut Collective and Adam, and is only included in the Collector's Edition of the game).
** The "how" and "why" of Adam's recovery after the destruction of Panchaea in ''Human Revolution'' (and his subsequent enlistment with Task Force 29) is covered in the tie-in novel ''Black Light''. This information is very scarcely referred to in ''Mankind Divided''.

** The ''Mass Effect: Galaxy'' mobile game (a prequel to ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'') explains how Jacob Taylor and Miranda Lawson first met.
** ''Redemption'' (also a prequel to ''2'') explains how [[spoiler:Liara T'Soni]] attempted to get Shepard's body back from the Shadow Broker in much greater detail and how [[spoiler:she first met Feron]]. The ''Lair of the Shadow Broker'' DLC references, but doesn't fully explain, the events mentioned in the comic series.

* The demo for ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' included a 19-page instruction manual about the characters featured in the demo (being Flowey and Toriel), how to attack, credits, and more. On the page that describes the enemy's turn, almost the entire page is scribbled over. Flowey appears at the bottom of the page, saying some people vandalized the page. The only thing readable on the page is the phrase 'friendliness pellets.' Another notable feature is the final page, which reads, 'a note from your friend.' It shows Flowey, smiling, introducing himself, looking forward to meet you in the game.
