* ''{{Freelancer}}'' has the [[TheEmpire Coalition]] / [[TheAlliance Alliance]] war, the beginning of which was shown in ''{{Starlancer}}'' but which lasted for another century afterward and the winner is not the one the first game would indicate, as well as the 80 Years War between Rheinland and the [[NGOSuperpower GMG]].

* ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' makes occasional references to the "Pyramid Wars" of 1987, in which the O.S.I. finally defeated S.P.H.I.N.X. (largely parodies of Franchise/GIJoe and Cobra). While some characters are said to have fought in it, very little detail is given.

** ''Anime/GundamReconguistaInG'': 1000 years before the story started, the Universal Century depicted in the original ''Gundam'' series underwent a societal collapse after numerous wars. Records of the time are sparse, but it is known that most of the space colonies were either destroyed or left, Earth's environment was ruined, and there was a severe famine that caused even more death. Most of the current society under the rule of Capitol Tower is kept in line out of fear of ever risking such a disaster again.

** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' has the Great Calamity, in which Calamity Ganon took over the Guardians and Divine Beasts and used them to ravage Hyrule. While an early expository cutscene shows a glimpse of the massacre that took place in Hyrule Castle Town [[spoiler:and Link's last retrievable memory shows the moment he succumbed to his injuries while fighting the Guardians]], the main evidence that the Calamity happened are the blasted ruins and decayed Guardians strewn about Hyrule. There's also the original battle between Hyrule and Ganon 10,000 years ago, which is only depicted on a mural in Impa's home.

** Eighty years before the start of the series came the conflict between kingdoms known simply as the Great War, which pitted an expansionist alliance of Mantle and Mistral against Vale, which was later joined by Vacuo. The conflict was touched off by settlers from both sides clashing during the Mantle/Mistral expansion, though nobody knows who shot first. The aftermath of the War had profound societal consequences for all of Remnant. The [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething King of Vale]] ([[spoiler:heavily implied to be an incarnation of [[BigGood Professor Ozpin]]]]), who had led the decisive FinalBattle, spearheaded the creation of the Huntsman Academies, one for each kingdom, in order to train the future generations of humanity's protectors. Furthermore, as an act of defiance against Mantle and Mistral's suppression of the arts,[[labelnote:Note]]The reasoning behind this was that the [[AnimalisticAbomination Creatures of Grimm]] are drawn to negative emotions, and therefore that suppressing emotional expression would decrease the likelihood of Grimm attacks.[[/labelnote]] the tradition of ColorfulNameTheming got started.

** Eighty years ago, an antagonistic faction attempted to stamp out individuality and artistic expression. They lost, and now everyone is named after a color.
** The [[LittleBitBeastly Faunus]] fought back when the kingdoms tried to force them to live in [[FantasticGhetto the town of Menagerie]]. After some decisive victories, they won the right to live alongside humanity, though there is still a lot of discrimination.
