* ''ComicBook/TheTransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye:'' It is one of [[{{Motormouth}} Swerve's]] goals in life to have an excuse to say this. He finally gets a chance sitting in on a storytelling session of Rewind's, when the historian shifts the story's focus.

* Sophia occasionally said something like this during some of her many "Picture it" stories. Possibly the most memorable one was when she mentioned having been briefly engaged to her own brother.

to:

* Both the Fairy Godfather and Lady Delphine have a tendency to say something to this effect at various points throughout the [[Fanfic/{{Cinderjuice}} Contractually Obligated Chaos]] series. Most of these stories have yet to be told.



* ''Literature/ArtemisFowl'': "...but that's another story" becomes something of a catchphrase for the first book's narrator. Most of these stories are eventually told as sideplots in books 2 and 3.

* Jade Harley from Homestuck has a special sort of precognitive prognostication that lets her know when and where her friends are and know what will happen to them in the future. Due to her flighty nature, she often leaks potentially paradox-causing information in casual conversation, and is quite bad at recovering from such events.

* Loki told a story in issues #6 and #7 of the 2015 run of ''[[Comicbook/Thor2014 The Mighty Thor]]'', which included some tangents about the 9th century AD version of some Marvel characters (Ghost Rider, Black Panther, the Atlanteans etc.) "but those are stories for another day, perhaps".

to:

* In ''Fanfic/TheLegendOfTotalDramaIsland'', TheStoryteller uses the phrase, "but that is another story for another time" as a {{foreshadowing}} device, signaling that the details of the incident in question will be part of a later Tale. [[note]]The story arc covers a full season of an elimination game show, with each [[IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming Tale]] covering one episode and portions of 2-4 chapters.[[/note]] The delays between the mention and the telling range from a few chapters to three quarters of the story arc.

* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' module DA1 ''Adventures in Blackmoor''. The DM Background section is written like someone telling a story. At one point it starts describing the destruction of Blackmoor, but then says "But of the sinking of that fabled land - another time! Today, we speak of other things."

* In TheSwordOfShannara when Allanon tells Shea the history of the races of the world. The trolls and gnomes are humans whose ancestors were mutated by radiation; dwarves are humans who hid underground, and through natural selection became accustomed to subterranean habitats. Noticing the obvious odd-one out, Shea asks about the Elves. Allanon invokves this trope; however not only is it eventually followed up on, it can be considered a SequelHook, since the next book is all about the Elves and their history.
* The Literature/CiaphasCain series is presented as the autobiography of the eponymous officer, suitably edited by one of his long-time allies. Since he's basically laying out his life story to a recorder over many, many sessions, he naturally rambles at times and elides lots of important detail (which has to be cleaned up by the editor, of course). Occasional footnotes to the effect of "this is a fascinating story which need not detain us right now" crop up every once in a while. (Perhaps the crowning example is an entire novel which is presented as having been, in the main, an aside brought up ''in a completely different account'' in the "original text".)

* Used as a SequelHook in the ending of ''Film/ConanTheBarbarian1982'', where narration by Mako tells us that in time, Conan "became a king by his own hand, and this story shall also be told."
** A different cut of the film uses on-screen titles, rather than narration, and ends instead with, "...but that is another story."

-->The goblin who was the teller at desk five that day would later be considered one of the most fortunate of their kind. Indeed, he came to bear the name Festergrip the Fated until the end of his days, but that's a whole different story to tell.
