* SG Night's ''Three Acts of Penance'' is narrated by Saccarri Vorture,[[spoiler: a penitent demon and former majiski ]] who records the story of Racath Thanjel several years after the fact. Saccarri has his own role in the tale, but makes it clear from the beginning that it is Racath's story, not his. The majority of the novel follows Racath, which Saccarri narrates from the third person (occasionally interjecting his own first-person commentary). Whenever Saccarri himself appears in the plot, he speaks from a first-person perspective.

* Literature/ErastFandorin is a Russian detective clearly modeled on Literature/SherlockHolmes, but only one Fandorin novel uses this trope. ''Literature/TheCoronation'' is narrated by Afanasii Zuikin, a butler in the Tsar's household who doesn't like Fandorin and is usually mystified by the moves Fandorin makes as Fandorin investigates the kidnapping of a young Romanov prince. (Most of the rest of the Fandorin series uses peripheral third-person POV characters instead of actual narrators.)

* A couple of books in the Literature/ErastFandorin series (14 novels as of 2017) use Fandorin as a POV character. A couple others use the antagonist for at least part of the book. Most do not, using as the POV character someone who is basically a minor character as far as the overall story goes.
** In ''Literature/TheTurkishGambit'', the POV character is Varvara, a flighty young woman who goes into the combat zone of the war with Turkey, and spends most of the novel flirting with the various handsome men at army HQ, but doesn't really factor into the mystery or Fandorin's hunt for the enemy mole.

* The main character of ''Literature/CantataInCoralAndIvory'' is Ikhsior, a former sea captain that unexpectedly inherited a title of nobility. The story is narrated by his scribe, who is [[UnreliableNarrator not allowed to admit]] that his new lord acts more like a sea captain than an aristocrat.

* ''Literature/FriedGreenTomatoesAtTheWhistleStopCafe'' and its film version (simply called ''Fried Green Tomatoes'') has two perspectives; a woman at a nursing home, and the old lady who tells the woman her story. The old lady's stories are mostly about her adoptive sister and her relationship with another girl.

* One could argue this is the case for Lucy Heartfillia in FairyTail. It's Natsu's story, but she's the one telling it. Either that, or she's the main character, but Natsu has WolverinePublicity.
