Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/TheSecondTry'': Most of the story follows Shinji and Asuka's point of view, but the bulk of the final chapter "End" shows the events of the second-to-last chapter from Rei's viewpoint.

** ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' set the precedent: Your PlayerCharacter, Bastila and Carth are captured by the Sith, and you have to choose one of your party members to bail you out. Not so difficult with Canderous, Juhani, or the droids, as they get to keep their gear. But for a challenge and [[CrowningMomentOfFunny a good laugh]], pick Jolee or Mission.

* ''VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes2DesperateStruggle'' has a couple of levels where you play as [[spoiler: Shinobu]], and a dream sequence where you control [[spoiler: Henry]]. Both of them end up helping Travis. [[StopHelpingMe He doesn't]] [[KillSteal appreciate it.]]

* ''VideoGame/{{DROD}}'' Very easy to implement in the level editor, and they occasionally appear in the main level sets.

* ''{{Starcraft}}'''s campaigns follow a logical story and difficulty order, but the first few Zerg and Protoss levels spoon-feed the new base and unit concepts.
* Subverted in ''TotalAnnihilation : Kingdoms'', which caused this to be viewed by some people as a negative trait, in spite of the fact that you are learning all four factions equally.

*** Continued in the now-defunct ''Metal Gear Online'' on PS3. Sneaking Mission gives you Old Snake, who is considerably weaker compared to Snake from MGO on PS2, but has the same stealth abilities he had in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4'' and performs better than regular soldiers, with a partner (if there are 11 players in the room) taking control as Otacon who can distract or stun soldiers, and deliver dog tags to Snake. DLC included the ability to play as Meryl (can start with a scoped D.Eagle), Johnny (XM8 Compact/Anti-Tank rifle, no nano machines), Mei Ling (can call air strikes and can use a sonar device), Liquid Ocelot (manipulate nanomachines, superior CQC and can use the Thor), Raiden (use the sword and is fast), and Vamp (can respawn on the spot and is great with knives), with Snake being allowed to be used in regular matches.

** ''VideoGame/DoubleOhSevenFromRussiaWithLove'' for the PS2 and GC has an interesting variant. For the second mission you're controlling a notably silent Bond while infiltrating an enemy fortress. Then he ''gets killed'' and it's revealed that the "Bond" you were playing as this whole time is actually a fake in a mask; you then switch over to the ''real'' Bond in England for the rest of the level. Anyone who's seen the movie probably will see this switch coming.

A sister trope to this one is AnotherSideAnotherStory. In AnotherSideAnotherStory the player goes through one character's story without changing between scenes but has the option of switching to the other character's story at any time (or after unlocking it) usually from the main menu.

* Downplayed in ''{{Morenatsu}}'', where POV switches to another character for brief moments. The most notable instance is the denouement of Kouya's route where the POV shifts to Kouya [[when he visits his father after the [[ConcertClimax big concert]] and begins the process of reconciling with his estranged family.]] while the player character waits outside.
