* Episode 3 of ''AceAttorneyInvestigations 2'' has this, as the player switches between controlling Miles Edgeworth in the present day situation, and Gregory Edgewroth in his final case, which also happens to be that one where Manfred Von Karma got his first penalty.

* ''StrontiumDog'' had two long-running stories in this vein: "Portrait of a Mutant" examined Johnny's early life, his time in the mutant resistance, and how he eventually took up bounty hunting; it was framed as Johnny telling Wulf and the Gronk why he's so eager to claim the small bounty on Nelson Bunker Kreelman. "Max Bubba", framed as Wulf's reminiscenses, told the story of how Johnny and Wulf first met and teamed up.

* WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck received ''[[MultipleChoicePast several]]'' origin stories throughout the run of his series. YMMV on whether or not this was an ''intentional'' spoof of the tangled origins of superheroes in the comics the series often parodied.

* WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck received ''[[MultipleChoicePast several]]'' origin stories throughout the run The 1993 ''WesternAnimation/BikerMiceFromMars'' series had a three-part episode called "Once Upon a Time on Mars", which explained in full detail how Modo got his robotic arm and lost his eye, why Vinnie wears a metal plate over half of his series. YMMV on whether or not this was an ''intentional'' spoof of face, and what the tangled origins of superheroes in Biker Mice went through during the comics Plutarkian invasion of Mars before they left their home planet and ended up on Earth. The 2006 revival also had a three-part episode called "Once Upon a Time on Earth", which explained how the series often parodied.Catatonians started their war with the Martian mice and how Ronaldo Rump became rich.

[[folder: Comic Books ]] * [[WonderGirl Donna Troy]] sets the record for the sheer number of these. A character created by author miscommunication (someone put Wonder Girl in ComicBook/TeenTitans not realizing her earlier appearances were ''teenage WonderWoman in the past''), she had to have her origin told after the fact. But no two writers seem to agree on what it should be, and by now she is nigh unusable; [[ContinuitySnarl the question "who the hell is she?" is now unanswerable]]. Every attempt to fix it just tosses another {{Retcon}} on the already-enormous pile. However, the last CosmicRetcon has left the slate blank for a single origin to be established, and stick. We haven't re-met her to know which one it'll be.
