** ''VideoGame/SonicUnleashed'':
*** Ever wonder ''why'' Sonic inexplicably turns into a werehog? The manual had the answer, the whole time.
---> "'''''Dr. Eggman then, from the safety of his control panel, reversed the polarity of the Chaos Emeralds releasing the dark energy within. The energy was then fired as a powerful beam towards the world...Due to his proximity to the Chaos Emeralds as the dark energy was expelled, Sonic underwent a new transformation. His muscular density increased, his claws sharpened, his teeth grew into fangs and his body became covered with a lush heavy fur. Sonic had transformed into a Werehog.'''''"

** ''SimCity 2000'''s manual had many pages devoted to discussing city planning in reality. Much of it was useful to the game, giving you insight into the models used to create the simulation. Just as much of it was simply a love letter to city planning as a subject of research.

** ''VideoGame/MegaMan3'' on the other hand, has a relatively complex narrative (by NES standards) in which Dr. Wily appears to reform only to eventually return to his evil ways...but possibly due to a rushed production, the game is missing an introduction actually *telling you* that Wily has reformed, making the mid-game reveal that he's gone rogue again incredibly puzzling if you didn't read the manual.

** The entire plot of the [[VideoGame/MegaMan1 original game]], [[ExcusePlot simple as it is]], exists solely in the manual and packaging; ''VideoGame/MegaMan2'' was the first in the series to include an introductory cutscene explaining the premise and how the major characters relate to each other.

* The [[http://wiki.mfgg.net/index.php?title=Super_Charisma_Bros wiki article]] of ''VideoGame/SuperCharismaBros'' clears up a lot of things that are never explained in-game - the events of Charisma 4 were actually a nightmare that Dudim had traveling through a time vortex, and that Dudim was sent back in time after the battle with Brynn due to "excess levels of [[TheBigBangTheory Bazingonium.]]"

* The ''VideoGame/SaintsRow'' series has an interesting example. The manual for ''VideoGame/SaintsRow1'' hints at a plot point at the end of the game (and leading into ''VideoGame/SaintsRow2''). How so? It's written from the perspective of an undercover cop, foreshadowing [[spoiler:the fact that Troy ''is'' the undercover cop.]]

*''VideoGame/{{DragonAgeOrigins}}'' has quite a bit of this. By finding scraps of paper and books, you can amass a godly database of everything from religious dogma to characteristics of dwarven society.

** There's also one for the DLC "L" chapter, which involves a godlike being who is perceived by the beings of a heavenly civilization as disastrous and coming down to the human world, with those in heaven chasing after him with disastrous results.

* ''Videogame/{{Evolve}}'' has quite a bit of information only known because the writer often posts on the forum. The most noticeable examples are the stories about the hunters prior to the game, found [[https://talk.turtlerockstudios.com/c/official-fiction here]].

* Venerable Amiga / DOS adult (pixel art boobs and gore) RPG ''VideoGame/{{DreamWeb}}'' originally came with the "Diary of a (Mad?) Man", which greatly fleshed out the main character, his mental problems, and the world he lives in. In fact, the story of the diary is far more detailed than the game itself; it also features a progressive rendering of symbol seen in dreams, [[spoiler:necessary to unlock one of the final doors]].
