* ''VideoGame/KisekiSeries'':
** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsInTheSky'': The Hundred Days War. It took place a decade or so before the start of the first game, and shaped the personal history of many of the main characters. The protagonist is the daughter of the man who won the war, and whose mother was a casualty of it, and her love interest [[spoiler:is the SoleSurvivor of the village that was destroyed by the aggressors to create a PretextForWar]].
** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsOfColdSteel'': The War of the Lions. It took place two hundred and fifty years before the game proper, but it get referenced regularly, and the war that is fought in the second game is in many ways a repeat of that war.

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': Much of what occurs in the series has its roots in a war that took place 5,000 years ago, in which [[HordeOfAlienLocusts an alien race known as the Gems]] fought over the colonization of Earth. The splinter group devoted to protecting the planet, the Crystal Gems, won with the caveat of many of their fallen comrades occasionally returning as corrupted monsters. The advancement that was made in colonizing the planet also led to a completely different geography and an AlternateHistory where various wars were never fought and most holidays never developed.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' occasionally makes reference to some war or another, usually for a quick gag. One time one is relevant to the main plot is in "Three Hundred Big Boys", where the spoils from a recently-won BugWar are spread among the populace. There were also the Star Trek Wars, which resulted in the banning of Star Trek, which led into the events of Where No Fan Has Gone Before.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{KulipariAnArmyOfFrogs}}'' has the Hiding War, in which the Turtle King, Sergu, raised a great ward (the Veil) over the Amphibilands to keep them safe, and an entire generation of the Frog's elite Kulipari warriors died throwing themselves against a scorpion horde to buy him the time to do it. This is a major background event, particularly as the hero, Darrel's, father was one of the Kulipari who died in that final battle.

* ''Series/EarthFinalConflict'' occasionally mentions the SI War that ended just prior to the arrival of the Taelons, which appears to stand for "Sino-Indian", except the US was also somehow involved. Not many details are revealed, but no nukes were used, which is amazing, since both China and India have them. The first protagonist fought there, and the second one took on the identity of someone else who did. Apparently, the war ended when someone employed a new WMD called the Quantum Vortex (some suggest it was the Taelons), which killed 100,000 people. There's also the Taelon-Jaridian War, of which barely anything is known.
