* ''Webcomic/TheSanityCircus'': Centuries before the plot, there was a war between humans and sorcerers (in Attley's words, 'The sorcerers invented magic and humans got huffy about that'). In the end humans won and the sorcerers were wiped out, but not before the last one created [[EldrictchAbomination the Scarecrows]].

* ''Fanfic/{{The Negotiations-verse}}'' is a {{recursive fanfiction}} of ''Fanfic/TheConversionBureau'' that takes place in the aftermath of the war between humanity and ponykind, with humanity emerging victorious. Nothing of the war is actually shown, but it's stated to have gone on for some time, with both sides sustaining heavy losses (humanity lost at least half of their population and several cities/countries destroyed; Equestria lost the Crystal Empire, three of its princesses and most of its military forces).

* The Crystal Gems ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': Much of ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' fought what occurs in the series has its roots in a war with that took place 5,000 years ago, in which [[HordeOfAlienLocusts an alien race known as the other Gems Gems]] fought over the colonization of Earth. The splinter group devoted to protecting or exploiting the Earth, and are still dealing planet, the Crystal Gems, won with the fallout over 5000 years later.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.

* When watching ''{{Airplane}}'', they never make clear which war "The War" was for Ted Stryker, though judging by when the movie was made, one might assume Vietnam. As farcical as the entire movie is, it could very well have been some other war entirely though. Hell it could be a war they (or Ted) completely made up as well. In one scene Ted starts having flashbacks which are represented by StockFootage going farther and farther back, all the way through World War I biplanes and finally the Wright brothers test flight.

Added DiffLines:

* Most of the large-scale conflicts in ''Literature/ArrivalsFromTheDark'' are glossed over with few details given. Even if a story is taking place during an interstellar war, the protagonist is likely to be involved on its fringes. This includes the four Void Wars against the [[HumanAliens Faata]] (taking place over the span of a century), the war with the [[LizardFolk Dromi]] (which lasts for at least 150 years due to the [[WeHaveReserves sheer numbers of the enemy]]), as well as the smaller conflicts against the [[HumanAliens Kni'lina]] and the [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Haptors]].

* The Old War in ''SkinHorse'' has been mentioned a few times. Tip has no idea what it was, and finds it very hard to get details from the nonhuman community, either because [[http://skin-horse.com/2011/todays-comic-526/ a crisis is going on]], or because [[http://skin-horse.com/2012/reminding-himself/ they don't actually know anything]]. We eventually get the details in "Mixed-Up Files", starting [[http://skin-horse.com/comic/2015-05-06/ here]]. It turns out to be a desperate shadow war in the 19th century between human and nonhuman, provoked by [[spoiler: Moustachio's attack on the Great Exhibition]].
* There are several of these in ''{{Drowtales}}'', including several wars of the Surface between the Dark and Light Elves and the conflict that eventually led to the Surface becoming uninhabitable, forcing the remaining elves to flee underground. Then there's the war between the Dark Elves and their children, the Drow, which led to the near extinction of the Dark Elves. The city of Chel'el'sussoloth also has a few of these such as the Sharen vs. the Sullisin'rune and various other times the Imperial forces have come into conflict with rogue clans.

The game history starts after the war, with the creations of the [[{{Eagleland}} United Civilized States]] and the [[TheEmpire Eurasian Dynasty]].
