* The bulk of each chapter of ''Manga/OmujoOmutsuJoshi'' is focused on male lead Shouta, with the last two to four pages showing events of the girl he interacted with most that chapter, usually Ichigo. The formula gets played with some after the harem expands with Morei and Muni. Shouta spends chapter 10 with Muni, but the flip focuses on Ichigo working up the nerve to ask him to the movies. Chapter 11 starts from Ichigo's perspective, then flips to Morei. Chapter 14 starts with Shouta, then Ichigo, then Morei.

* ''Theatre/RosencrantzAndGuildensternAreDead'' is a perspective flip of ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}'', although rather than telling it from the villains' point of view, it is retold from the point of view of [[ThoseTwoGuys two characters so insignificant Laurence Olivier didn't include them in his adaptation]].
* The musical ''Theatre/{{Elisabeth}}'' does this to a degree: the title character isn't entirely villianified but she (as well as some other traditional nice guys) are far more flawed than the usual "warm-hearted innocent young beauty" image which looks like she stepped straight out of a Disney movie. (Best example: the incredibly sugary [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f1IhKzG1NWM&feature=related Sissi movies]].)
* In ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'', the first meeting between Hamilton and his future wife Eliza Schuyler is described in two songs - "Helpless", sung by Eliza, and "Satisfied", sung by her older sister Angelica. Eliza recounts the meeting in a decidedly romantic way (there's her instant infatuation with Hamilton and his insistent courtship of her) - but Angelica later says that she sacrificed her feelings for Eliza's benefit, and that the penniless Hamilton was interested in the Schuylers' money and would have been content with marrying any of the sisters.
* In the theatrical version of ''Music/{{Evita}}'' the song "Another Suitcase In Another Hall" is sung by the woman whom Eva has just supplanted as Juan Peron's mistress, and serves as a perspective flip in which we suddenly see the effects of Evita's triumphant progress on someone else, for whom it resulted in defeat not triumph.

* ''VideoGame/ShiningWind'' has Kiriya as the protagonist of the game where he can draw swords out of people's chests (they just need to shine and he doesn't even need to physically touch them). Souma is a major character of the game whose entire shtick is to try and stop the civil war from erupting or stopping it completely. If players want to know more about Souma and his perspective, then they would have to watch the anime ''Anime/ShiningTearsXWind'' where it explains what Souma has been up to behind the scenes.
