Definition
something that comes with something else, but is less important than it
sometimes in a specialized sense, including:
  • incidental expenses or when in context, just incidentals — minor expenses not budgeted or not specified
  • incidental music — music in a play, television program, radio program, video game or some other form not primarily musical. (The term is less frequently applied to film music, with such music being referred to instead as the film score or soundtrack.)
  • And that Charles's sister's tale-bearing tongue should be relevant to the building of a Yukon fire, was apparent only to Mercedes, who disburdened herself of copious opinions upon that topic, and incidentally upon a few other traits unpleasantly peculiar to her husband's family.
