* PointOfView



* The ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'' fic ''FanFic/IWillNotBow'' is told from the POV of Ren, the {{OC}} protagonist. Averted in the fic's sequels and rewrite, which are told in third-person.
* ''SonicTheHedgehog'' fanfic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10270643/1/My-Time-Of-Dying My Time Of Dying]]'' is written from Scourge's POV, but is also strictly PresentTense. Scouge is consistently suicidal, depressed, and putting his own thoughts through the wringer. He also repeatedly snarks at the reader while mentally voicing his dislike of the more heroic characters like Sonic.
** The story is all the better for Scourge being written as a FirstPersonSmartass. He stays IC, keeping his bigoted opinions and suspecting the more noble characters of ulterior motives. Additionally his flawed reasoning is obvious to the reader, all keeping him from becoming a DracoInLeatherPants. He is a VillainProtagonist, but the story maintains a SympatheticPOV.

This, especially when accompanied by first person narration, can also unintentionally function as a SpoilerOpening to a GenreSavvy audience, who subconsciously assume (with good reason) that regardless of what happens during the story (who dies, etc.) the viewpoint character ''must'' survive the events in order to be in a position to relate the tale to the audience later.

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' and its [[TheVerse 'verse]] are primarily third-person, but any scenes focusing on [[Literature/TheDresdenFiles Harry Dresden]] honor the style of his canon, and are told from his POV.

This trope applies when the story is told from "inside the head" of one person. If there is a narrative, it will be told as if that person were speaking to us. If there is a camera, it will be looking through that person's eyes. (A related perspective is third person limited, which likewise follows a single character's point of view, but views that character from outside.) It's most commonly used in literature as a narrative technique and in video games as a genre. It is noticeable and notable when it appears outside of those two areas, especially in movie and film where it's relatively rare to see anything directly from a characters perspective, rarer still for it to be maintained throughout. It was a major breakthrough in art when this was subverted and perspectives that no human could reasonably see started to be used in painting, such as a birds eye view.
