** The DL-6 incident, happening 15 years before [[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney the first game]]. Defense attorney Gregory Edgeworth was shot dead in an elevator whose power had run out due to an earthquake in the courthouse. This scarred Miles Edgeworth, his son, and was the moment where he stopped wanting to be a lawyer and instead took the path of a prosecutor under Mandred von Karma's custody. [[spoiler:The most tragic thing is that von Karma was the killer.]]
** The kidnapping of a kid in the backstory of ''Trials and Tribulations''. Terry Fawles abducted [[spoiler:Dahlia Hawthorne]] and wouldn't release her until Valerie (her sister) delivered a red diamond which was worth over one million dollars. Dahlia fell to a river and [[NeverFoundTheBody her body was never found]]. [[spoiler:Of course, Dahlia survived and proceeded to become the main villain of ''Trials and Tribulations'' with her long chain of murders. Even the kidapping was a charade planned by her, Valerie and Fawles.]]

* The formation of The Philosophers in the ''Franchise/MetalGear'' franchise.
** Although it's not really apparent until the end of the series, pretty much ''everything'' that happens in the ''Franchise/MetalGear'' universe has its roots in [[spoiler:August 1964, the Virtuous Mission which sparked Operation Snake Eater and led to the creation of the Patriots]], as shown in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3'', chronologically the first game. The best example? The Boss's last wish: [[spoiler: a unified world]]. Big Boss's and Zero's differing interpretations of that wish and how to fulfill it lead to almost everything that happens in the rest of the series, including the creation of Outer Heaven and the creation of [[spoiler: [[NebulousEvilOrganization the Patriots]]]], which leads directly to the events of ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2'' and ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4 4]]''.
