* ''VideoGame/WolfensteinIITheNewColossus'' features a fully-featured port of ''VideoGame/Wolfenstein3D'' as a mini-game, but with a twist; titled "Wolfstone 3D", the story is changed so instead of B.J. Blazkowicz fighting through Nazis to kill Hitler, players take on the role of Elite Hans fighting through Kreisau rebels to kill "Terror Billy".

* Sometimes the Irish folk song "I Never Will Marry" is from the POV of a man (usually a lover) who either saw a woman commit suicide by sea or knew a woman who did. At other times, the singer is the woman herself.

Added DiffLines:

* ''FanFic/LandingDay'': The story is ''Film/IndependenceDay'' told from the perspective of the alien invaders. Events from the film are replicated, including the first CurbstompBattle, the operating scene, the "release me" scene, the computer virus messing up the aliens' systems, and the final battle.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/WingsOfFire'' is a perspective flip on traditional tales featuring dragons. The main characters are all dragons who view humans as weak, dumb things that are mainly just good for a snack.

* Creator/FredSaberhagen's ''Literature/TheDraculaTape'' is a story about how {{Dracula}} was essentially a nice guy and no one cared. This works exceptionally well, as a close reading of the original novel strongly suggests that the "heroes" are ''idiots''.

[[spoiler: It also takes advantage of the original being a ScrapbookStory largely compiled by Mina; in this version Mina was Dracula's ally, and so much of the later book is reinterpreted as her manipulating the hunters by using their sexism against them.]]

* The Pokemon fanfic Fanfic/TravelsOfTheTrifecta does this when integrating anime episodes into the story, because it portrays the stories from Paul's perspective rather than Ash's.

* In the Literature/{{Worm}} x Videogame/{{Dishonored}} crossover fanfic, ''FanFic/AChangeOfPace'', Glory Girl still acts a lot like her canon counterpart, including the flying dumpster things, but because Taylor is allied with her we see how she looks after Taylor more. Likewise, we see how the Undersiders look from her angle, with Tattletale pushing buttons being more personal and why so many people find her annoying.

** In the original book, Dorothy threw the water on the Witch in a fit of pique, having ''no idea'' that it would cause her death. One can wonder however, what would have happened if she knew.

* BravelyDefault loves this trope, you are a group of heroes, journeying with a young beautiful priestess, protecting her from harm and bringing light to the world, while fighting off the corrupt and [[BlackAndWhiteMorality morally black evil empire]]... [[spoiler: actually shes the misguided priestess of a wrong faith, and the light you are bringing is being harnessed by the antagonists to blast through the dimensions in order to [[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou invade our world]], and the bringing of the light is what's causing the next world's light loss in the first place, the villains while screwy are well intentioned extremists, while you're the unassuming instigators of doom, and it ends up being a GreyAndGrayMorality with ''you'' being the darker of the greys.]]
* Two ''Franchise/StarWars'' games have given the players exclusively Imperial campaigns: ''TIEFighter'' and ''[[VideoGame/StarWarsBattlefront Battlefront II]]''. ''Battlefront'' in particular, while it might not make the Empire as a whole look much better, certainly paints the Stormtroopers as sympathetic instead of the faceless evil minions they've become known as.

* It's completely unintentional, but Disney's AnimatedAdaptation of ''Disney/SleepingBeauty'' comes across as a Perspective Flip from the point-of-view of the [[EnsembleDarkHorse Three Good Fairies]] who must save the sleeping beauty and her prince from an evil witch.
