* ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'' has such a long and complex backstory that it takes up twelve volumes of the manga and nearly the whole animated series. The backstory focuses mainly on Guts, but Griffith and Casca have their own pasts and motivations revealed as well. Serpico and Farnese also received their own backstory arc in the manga.

* Explored a lot with different characters in the ''Literature/WarriorCats'' series. There's ''The Rise of Scourge'', ''Bluestar's Prophecy'', ''Crookedstar's Promise'', ''Yellowfang's Secret'', and then a number of short stories in the field guides, such as the one about Barley's past. Even the main series has some of these moments.

* In ''TheGunganCouncil'', all characters have some sort of backstory given in their first biography. However, in roleplays such as "It's Not That I Keep Hanging On, I'm Never Letting Go," the backstory for characters is described in detail to explain character relationships never written out before.

* ''Videogame/{{Halo}}'' has a surprisingly substantive backstory told through a multitude of novels, comics, [[AlternateRealityGame Alternate Reality Games]], guidebooks, online exclusives, live-action specials, and even an [[Anime/HaloLegends anime series]]. Hell, [[Literature/TheForerunnerSaga one book trilogy]] is even set over ''100,000 years'' before the start of the games.

* ''HajimeNoIppo'' gives us episodes/chapters about how Kimura and Aoki as well as Takamura got into boxing. Sendo's backstory is also told by his grandma, but even more importantly, he gets his very own ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaiden gaiden]]'' chapter which shows how the Naniwa Tomcat became the Naniwa Tiger. And yes, it is as badass as it sounds. There's also a flashback to Kamogawa's and Nekota's past, which involves Kamogawa beating a U.S. soldier in a boxing match.

* The ''Franchise/StarWars'' prequel films had existed in brief notes just to get things together for the original movie. Creator/GeorgeLucas wanted the original ''Star Wars'' to have the Episode IV title to resemble the ''ComicStrip/BuckRogers'' and ''[[Film/FlashGordonSerial Flash Gordon]]'' serials, but only used "Part IV" in the opening expository crawl. ''Film/ANewHope'' has a lot of imagery that is intended to make you think you're seeing something familiar, such as the first appearance of [[TheObiWan Obi-Wan]].

* ''vSketDance'', while a gag manga for the most part, features three separate backstory arcs for the main cast that are either sufficiently melodramatic (Bossun and Switch) or heartwarming (Himeko) that help flesh out their personalities and how they ended up becoming the people they are now.

* All the playable characters, including minor ones, in any ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' between ''Genealogy'' and ''Radiant Dawn'' have at least some backstory and/or personality, which in some games can be explored through "support conversations". ''Path of Radiance'' and ''Radiant Dawn'' added base conversations that function similarly, but they're easier to get.
