* 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.

* ''Anime/TokyoMarbleChocolate'' is build around this: The story consists of 2 [=OVA=]s each tells the story from the point of view of one of the protagonists, one is a LovableCoward guy and the other a CuteClumsyGirl who are trying to sort out the problems in their relationship, and it shows for example how the problems the guy goes through trying to prove his love to the girl are interpreted by her as him being driven away from her because of her quirkiness.

* ''FanFic/ShadowAndRose'' is (mostly) a retelling of ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' from the point of view of [[{{Deuteragonist}} Alistair]].



** And in the movie, she actually threw the water to try and save the Scarecrow, who the Witch had set on fire, and some of it splashed on the Witch in the process. Hence Dorothy was simply trying to save one of her close friends and loved ones, who the Witch was already trying to ''murder''.

* TaylorSwift wrote ''Enchanted'' about meeting a guy at a party. OwlCity did a cover of that song, revealing that ''he'' was the one she wrote the song for. Except, of course, the cover was Flipped. He did a really nice job, too.

* Richard Howard's poem "Nikolaus Mardruz to his Master Ferdinand, Count of Tyrol, 1565" is a sequel to the 19th century poet Robert Browning's "My Last Duchess". "My Last Duchess", narrated by the Duke to an unspeaking listener (Mardruz), sees the egotistical Duke show off his palace and a portrait of his last wife, who he is strongly implied to have killed, all the while working with the listener to arrange a new marriage. Howard's poem is Mardruz's take on the entire conversation, as well as detailing his subsequent actions. The poem is a brilliant evisceration of the Duke's pretensions.

* 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 his 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.

* One episode of ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' has Ted and Barney at a club taking RefugeInAudacity, pushing karma to the limit to see if doing bad gets good results (for the most part, it does). In the morning, just as Ted is set to start bragging to Marshall, Marshall reveals that Ted butt-dialed him ''seventeen times'', and the significant events of the night before are shown from a different perspective. Rather than being audacious and charismatic, Ted was a JerkAss thief who nearly knowingly had sex with a married woman. Ted felt shame and Marshall scorned him.
** In another episode, Barney reveals that he always roots for the villain of a movie and that he cries when said villain dies at the end.
