* Part of the reason ''Fanfic/ShinjiAndWarhammer40K'' is such a DoorStopper. Intricate attention is frequently given to insignificant details, with even the prologue, which is long enough to be its own separate story, full of things that are never mentioned again (and a few things [[ChekhovsGun that are very important later]], so the reader still needs to pay attention).

* The Gossip Stones in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' are this. Some of them share facts that are a bit relevant to the plot (one says that Princess Zelda is a tomboy, hinting at [[spoiler: her identity as Sheik]]), but most are just neat background info.

** Same thing with the stone tablets scattered across Zora's Domain in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild''. While several deal with the history of Princess Mipha's role as a Champion, which ''is'' more relevant to the main plot, the rest deal with less important background details such as why Zora Armor is used in marriage proposals, how King Dorephan got his forehead scar, etc.

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsInTheSky'': Practically every town is full of [=NPCs=] who say things that don't matter, and houses or rooms without anything to examine, interact with, or find.

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsInTheSky'': Practically every town is full The trilogy, and the over all [[VideoGame/KisekiSeries Trails series]] are packed to bursting with detail. In the main plot alone, several supporting characters take up small, relatively unimportant positions that could have easily been filled in by more plot-important characters, but instead we get several details about their lives. While going across the world map, the party will have to stop at border checkpoints and fill out paperwork to pass by the security, and these soldiers have names, friendships, and details of [=NPCs=] who say things their own. In fact, the NPC cast numbers in the hundreds, 99.9% of the time with names, personalities, rivalries, and their own little subplots that don't matter, just avert WelcomeToCorneria, it smashes it into pieces and houses or rooms grounds them to dust. You can go back and talk to minor characters and with every update to the plot, no matter how small, there will be new dialogue for everyone. The main characters don't just stand and accept the information passively either, they'll engage in occasionally quite lengthy conversation that more often than not, has nothing to do with the plot at hand and will be resolved without anything any help from the player. Even treasure chests avert stock phrases, (at least in English versions thanks to examine, interact with, or find.duplicate text files) there's unique, pithy jokes that lampshade [[KleptomaniacHero the usual player habits]]. It's this attention to detail that balloons the scripts into the hundreds of thousands in word count, and that's just in the kingdom of Liberl; one small country across an entire continent that would be a few sidequests and a town in nearly any other JRPG.

* {{Wii}} RPG ''VideoGame/{{Opoona}}'' is a game that actually ''sells'' itself on its narrative filigree: It bills itself as a "Lifestyle RPG," and half the focus of the game is learning about the culture of the alien planet on which you've landed. Things such as the planet's art history, pop culture, fashions, industry, and ecology are all nonessential and "secondary" to the main plot, but they are there to be explored by the curious.

* In the novella ''Literature/ATasteOfHoney'', the {{Technobabble}} Adónane, Perfecta and Femysade engage in upon their first meeting, as well as Femysade later on does herself, as well as various things Aqib mentions about the Menagerie or the Sovereign House don't really serve to move the plot forwards, but do a great deal of WorldBuilding on the side.

* ''Fanfic/IAmNOTGoingThroughPubertyAgain'' does this quite a bit, often going on long tangents about political and economic history or character motivations. Since it's a CrackFic, most of them are used as the set up for jokes.
