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.)
  • But in the middle of the night she went down and asked him to come up where he belonged, but he was grieving and wouldn't come—it had come to his poor slow wits, finally, that though all she had said she had said in rage, and the words had nothing to do with the rage, they were incidentally true.
