* The Teraport Wars from ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'' count. Although its pretty easy to imagine the effects the Teraport would have on a galaxy used to wormgate travel for war and trading, we never actually see much of the chaos the invention actually inflicts on galactic civilization apart from a single battle.
** Also the Terraforming wars, back when both Tagons were in the Celeschul military, which is implied to have resulted in the UNS as it currently exists.

* An ancient, pre-historical war between humans, [[spoiler: elves]] and [[HumanAliens Zordonians]] forms the backdrop of ''FanFic/PowerRangersGPX'', in great Power Rangers tradition. Long story short, the Zordonians were nasty, the humans and [[spoiler: elves]] got mad and kicked them off the planet, [[spoiler: humans accidentally killed the elves' leader, the elves hid]] and the Zordonians returned [[ShoutOut 10,000]] years later.

* ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' has several mentions of Trainer-[[VideoGame/PokemonRanger Ranger]] Wars in the past, with Lt. Surge having fought in the most recent one that ended 40 years ago. The sides of the war were mentioned to be the Trainer Aligned Treaty Organization (consisting of Kanto, the Orange Islands, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, Unova, Kalos, and Orre) and the Fall City Pact (consisting of Fiore, Almia, and Oblivia), with side conflicts originating from one side aiding the traditional enemies of the other, such as the Fall City Pact giving aide to the Draconid Tribe that often was in conflict with the main Hoenn population.

* In AndreNorton's "Solar Queen" novel ''Plague Ship'', the ''Solar Queen'' lands on Earth in the middle of a radioactive wasteland. The few clues given indicate that this is all that remains of central Europe, destroyed in a nuclear war a long time ago.

* ''VideoGame/AtlasReactor'' has the Titan War, which was fought between practically all of humanity after the Reactors failed and Atlas was the only place left on Earth with power. The War was won by the three {{Mega Corp}}s who currently run Atlas. Several of the Freelancers you can play as were veterans of the War, having gained Resurrection Contracts due to their actions during the war.

*** Most of these are elaborated upon either as the series put out new books, or as supplemental materials were released. For instance, in ''TheWorldOfIceAndFire'' we learn about the circumstances behind Robert's Rebellion (a Targaryen prince stole Robert's betrothed, but his father also murdered the current Lord of House Stark at the time, and his heir), the War of the Ninepenny Kings (the last of the Blackfyres and a group of bandit-kings warred against Westeros in the Stepstones and the Essos realm of Lys), and a SuccessionCrisis between two branches of House Targaryen, the greens and blacks, which became the Dance of Dragons. As for Tywin Lannister and the Reynes and Tarbecks, we also find out about what he did (beat them militarily and burned Tarbeck Hall to the ground, and then trapped the Reynes in a mine and redirected a river to drown them).

* The ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' pilot (and one other episode) contain a flashback to the "Independence War", but other than that it's just talked about, although its aftermath is the prime motivation for many of the characters. In fact it's not until ''Film/{{Serenity}}'' that we get a clear picture of what it was actually fought over.[[note]]Briefly, a number of worlds declined to join the Union of Allied Planets on the grounds that the economic benefits didn't justify the loss of autonomy, but eventually the Alliance stopped taking no for an answer.[[/note]]

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'': The war in which Shinra conquered the world, especially Wutai. The very end of this war (the conquest of Wutai part) is the very first chapter of ''CrisisCore''.
