* In the ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' universe, Reach was the planet where all the Spartan-[=IIs=] (including the Master Chief himself) were raised and trained; the [[VideoGame/HaloCombatEvolved first game]] begins right after the Covenant have taken Reach, with the Chief being one of the few to escape the planet's fall. The actual events of the battle of Reach are covered in ''Literature/HaloTheFallOfReach'', ''Literature/HaloFirstStrike'', and ''VideoGame/HaloReach''.

** Edward Buck decided to become an [[VideoGame/Halo3ODST Orbital Drop Shock Trooper]] after his homeworld of Draco III was razed by the Covenant.
** The Spartan-[=IIIs=] are all war orphans who lost their homes and families to the Covenant, and initially joined the program to get revenge.
** Though the precise timeline is still kind of iffy, much of [[VideoGame/{{Halo 4}} Gabriel Thorne]]'s determination to become a great Spartan is clearly born from the loss of his entire hometown of New Phoenix.

* ''VideoGame/HaloReach'': Oh, boy... In the ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' universe, the name of the planet Reach stands in the same line as Stalingrad, Nanking, or Hiroshima. The Fall of Reach was one of the last major battles in the Human-Covenant War, ending with the humans losing most of their remaining ships and the annihilation of the last major human population center outside of Earth. Given that it is a prequel to the main series and has the name of the planet in its title (and that the Master Chief is always called the last remaining Spartan in the games of the main series [=[=][[spoiler:[[ThereIsAnother though that ends up being not quite true]]]][=]=]), the events of the game are pretty much [[KillEmAll a forgone conclusion]].

** This is further subverted, and may be even LampShaded, in the fact that during the Ishvalan civil war, Ed and Al's hometown is reported to have been run in and destroyed (which is used as an official excuse for Ed's limbs), but now it seems to be thriving again.

** Shiganshina District, the home of PowerTrio Eren, Mikasa, and Armin is the most prominent example. Its destruction is the focal point of the beginning of the series, and it serves as a symbol of everything lost when Wall Maria was breached. Reclaiming it becomes vital to the plot, since [[spoiler: the mystery of Eren's powers may be hidden in the ruins of his home]].
