Go To

  • In Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth, Allebahst and Babahl used to be a single country, Cohdopia, and this fact is mentioned several times. However, it's never explained why the two nations split apart.
  • Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc: The Mastermind scoffs at the notion of explaining how they erased the students' memories of their two years at Hope's Peak Academy.
    • Though this is eventually answered in supplementary materials: being the Ultimate Analyst, she learned it from her boyfriend, the Ultimate Neurologist.
  • In the Unlimited Blade Works route of Fate/stay night, it's mentioned that Assassin was once able to ward off Berserker from the Ryuudou Temple gate at one point. Since the Power Levels in the story establish that Assassin shouldn't even be able to wound Berserker, it's not exactly clear just how Assassin pulled this off - but the fact it's unexplained just makes you wonder if Assassin is really that good.

  • In Juniper's Knot the fiend says she has done many things: she has killed many people, saved children, destroyed entire towns...but none of those are the reason she is confined within the magical circle that keeps her prisoner. She never reveals why she ended up there, but only angrily dismisses the question.
  • The Letter: Isabella, one of main characters of the game found a dead body stuffed inside a couch during her first assignment in Devlin Court as a real estate agent. Other characters likes to remind her about it. Called Devlin Court Accident.
  • In The Heist: Monaco, one of these is referenced when Samira is looking through Rye’s criminal record.
    Samira: Horse theft?
    Rye: Hey, I freed that horse.
  • In Nikolai's first season in Queen of Thieves, Remy reacts with dismay when Nikolai declares he needs more coffee, hinting at some kind of "fun story" that the heroine doesn't get the chance to ask about:
    Nikolai: I need more coffee.
    Remy: You absolutely don't! Do you remember what happened last time?
  • Reigning Passions:
    • In Amara's first season, as Piama and Lyris coach the heroine in the proper formalities for the tournament, Lyris proposes teaching her "the important banquet grape-throwing rules," only for Piama to shoot down the idea, citing some past incident which is left to the imagination.
      Piama: Let's skip the grape throwing altogether. What if [Heroine] accidentally hits Princess Ellebaire?
      Lyris: Excellent point. We don't need to be blamed for a banquet disaster similar to the last time something like that happened.
      Heroine: A disaster due to...grapes?
      Lyris: Yes. Do try to keep up.
    • Sevastian's third season drops a couple of references to "Princess Yalena's pastoral ball" two spans ago, which was apparently an expensive debacle involving live sheep loose in the palace.
  • Starship Promise:
    • In Atlas Season 3, when Jaxon is explaining that his contact Zeg owes him a favor:
      Jaxon: It's a long story, but let's just say there's a reason why it's now illegal to breed salamanders on seventeen different colonies.

    • A Cosmic Match: In Nav's short, he and the heroine bicker over "those Empire guards on our last job" on two different occasions, with Nav repeatedly insisting that only "the tattoo" was his fault.
  • SOON:
    • It's never revealed how exactly Atlas blew up part of Switzerland. Considering that Atlas could have been named after the ATLAS experiment, the Large Hadron Collider may have been involved.
    • Likewise, it's never stated why Atlas and 2013!Atlas are in a wheelchair. From the dates, it can be deduced that this isn't related with the incident in Switzerland and considering that Atlas never attempts to undo their disability with Time Travel, it can be assumed it wasn't the result of an accident.
  • In Tsukihime's side-story game, Kagetsu Tohya, Shiki occasionally refers to the haunted house his class did last year, in which he and his friend were responsible for something that resulted in their student government making an amendment that strictly prohibits tea kettle monsters, mushroom monsters, and any pot that uses the aforementioned things. The specifics are left up to the imagination.
    Shiki: Yes, we did a haunted house my freshman year, too. Well, Arihiko did his part so ardently that we were forced to stop in the morning.
    (To himself): The Inuidake Children Kidnapping. It's an event that will forever remain in the annals of the student government.
  • Zero Escape:
    • In Virtue's Last Reward when Sigma considers possible reasons for why he was forced into the Nonary Game, he mentions that he once had a one-night stand with a politician's mistress, but doesn't give further details.
    • During Zero Time Dilemma, Junpei remarks that seeing the base of an organ-trafficking gang had deeply traumatized him. He never explains what happened to the gang, or how he got in that situation to begin with (aside from the fact that it was somehow related to his detective work).
