* ''Series/CobraKai'': A good part of the series focuses on Johnny Lawrence, the antagonist from ''Film/TheKarateKid'', and the audience gets to learn more about his background and how he saw the events of that film. It turns out that rather than being some spoiled {{jerkass}} high school bully, Johnny was actually a troubled youth who, while privileged materially, faced daily verbal abuse from his stepfather that scarred him emotionally. He joined the [[ThugDojo Cobra Kai dojo]] when he was younger as an escape and the knowledge, skills, respect and social acceptance he gained caused him to see [[DrillSergeantNasty Kreese]] as a surrogate father. As he entered high school, he started dating Ali and, despite some somewhat boorish behavior, he did genuinely love her and wanted to patch things up after their big fight before his senior year. Then Daniel [=LaRusso=] moved to town and, while Daniel saw him as TheBully, Johnny saw him as the cocky new kid making moves on the girl he loved and he just wanted [=LaRusso=] to back off. Once the tournament came and was done, Johnny lost Ali, had to suffer being nearly strangled to death by his father figure, and, upon leaving Cobra Kai, lost the one thing in his life that gave him meaning, sending him on a downward spiral to the his present day status as a snakebitten handy man.

** One of the best is ''I, Jedi'' by Michael A. Stackpole, which fills in and comments on some of the more {{egregious}} plot holes from the earlier ''Literature/JediAcademyTrilogy''.

** A Tale of the Wicked Queen'' is a TwiceToldTale of Disney's ''Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs''. It goes into who the Queen is and why she became a WickedStepmother. Most of the book takes place years prior to the film. In her case, the Queen was corrupted by three distant cousin's of her husband after his death. Her grief, [[IAmNotPretty self-esteem problems]], and [[GreenEyedMonster jealousy issues]] led to her easily being manipulated into an [[MyBelovedSmother overprotective mother]] towards Snow.
** In ''A Tale of the Wicked Queen'', the Queen delivers her own alternative interpretation of ''Literature/SleepingBeauty''. In it, Maleficent was a [[ShrinkingViolet shy]], misunderstood woman who feared rejection. She [[TheShutIn shut herself away]] with only blackbirds for companionship. Maleficent put Sleeping Beauty into her sleep in order to protect her from the world.

** Another Disney example, PlayedForDrama, is the novel series ''Literature/ATaleOf''. ''Fairest of All'' retells ''Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs'' with the Queen as the protagonist. She turns out to have been a victim of physical and emotional abuse by her father that continues beyond the grave via the Magic Mirror. ''The Beast Within'' reveals the descent into darkness that made [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast the Prince the Beast]] before love redeemed him.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''Literature/WarriorCats'' series does this a few times: ''Bluestar's Prophecy'', ''Crookedstar's Promise'', ''Yellowfang's Secret'', and ''Tallstar's Revenge'' all take place during roughly the same time frame, so there are several scenes seen from different points of view - for instance during battles, the cats who are launching a necessary preemptive attack in one book are seen as vicious invaders in the other. Later novellas repeat previous scenes in similar ways, and ''Battles of the Clans'' even has twin stories in it that show the aftermath of the same battle in two different Clans, to show that each battle fought has an impact on everyone involved and even on the future of each Clan.

* Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski is well-known for using this trope in his short stories about TheWitcher. In ''Lesser Evil'' (''Mniejsze Zło'' in the ) we have another example of using it on the classic "Literature/SnowWhite" story - good queen saw terrible things that would be done by her step-daughter in future, and gave orders to kill her. Girl killed queen's servant when he tried to rape her, and ran and joined a bunch of gnomes, with whom she was robbing people. Queen sent a wizard that killed all the gnomes and imprisoned girl in a crystal. But then some stupid prince freed and married her, and she murdered him to rule herself. Then she attacked her family lands, and killed the queen, formed a group of murderers and came to kill the wizard, only to die from the hand of the Witcher. And that's only one example.

* Not exactly a villain-hero flip, but the NFL Network did it with their ''America's Game: The SuperBowl Champions'' series that tells the stories of teams that won the Super Bowl. The spin-off ''Missing Rings'' tells the story of the teams that ''lost'' them.
