* ''Literature/{{Rant}}'', by Creator/ChuckPalahniuk, is told as a series of interviews of people acquainted with the titular protagonist in various ways. [[spoiler: Possibly partially subverted in that one contributor is all but explicitly stated to be a version of the protagonist after time travel and TheSlowPath factor in.]]

* The night guards from the ''[[Videogame/FiveNightsAtFreddys Five Nights at Freddy's]]'' series act like this. Yes, the game is about their survival against the [[HomicideMachines killer animatronics]], but they really don't have a big impact on the plot or backstory - at best, they can discover it. [[spoiler:''3'''s unnamed Fazbear's Fright guard ''might'' have burned down the building, but it's only slightly implied, with no confirmation.]] ''Videogame/FiveNightsAtFreddys4'' averts this with its child protagonist, who is substantially more involved in the plot.

* 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.
