* ''Series/NaturallySadie'': In "Rashomon," Sadie, Margaret, Rain, Ben, and Arden each tell their own version of how the food fight at Acropolis Wow got started. (Some examples: Sadie gives Arden fangs, Rain gives himself a mustache, Margaret claims to have written a self-help book, and Arden gives Ben a French accent and recounts him flirting with her.)

* ''Series/{{CSI}}'': "Rashomama". This was a hilariously well-done episode. Nick's car is stolen -- and with it all the evidence collected at a wedding where the groom's mother was murdered. The [=CSIs=] recount events to get their stories straight for when Internal Affairs questions them. Each start from listening to David the Coroner make a joke about the deceased and walking through an arch of flowers, and from there, things diverge. Sara injects her irritation with marriage, Nick thoroughly enjoys the atmosphere, Grissom waxes poetic about the floral arrangements, and Greg recalls events in film noir style.

(Though the episode is actually ''Rashomon''-style InNameOnly; none of the investigators' memories or witnesses' statements actually contradict each other.)

-->Her daughter thinks: One of the men tried to kiss me, but kissed my mother in the darkness instead, and she slapped him on the face!
-->The boss thinks: This idiot kissed the young lady and she tried to slap him, but she missed in the dark and hit me instead!
-->The other man thinks: [[spoiler: Haha! Gotcha! I made a kissing sound in the air and slapped my boss on his face!]]

* ''Film/TheGalWhoTookTheWest'' tells the story of the arrival of an opera singer from different perspectives. It predated ''Rashomon'' by a year, and may have been an influence on it, since it interprets the same female character as strong, delicate or cunning depending on who's telling the story, the way the wife in ''Rashomon'' is depicted.

* ''Theatre/JerseyBoys'' features a rotating POV between the members of the Four Seasons and this occurs as a result. For example, Tommy's narration implies he plucked Bob out of obscurity until Bob takes over as narrator and reveals that he already had a hit single with another band ("Short Shorts" by The Royal Teens).

** Bob makes it appear that everything with the band was smooth sailing until [[spoiler:Tommy's gambling debt was revealed.]] Once Nick takes over, it's shown that there were actually several incidents that created tension between the members and that one was just the straw that broke the camel's back.

*** One hint that Plague Knight might not be telling the whole truth about what happened lies in his fight against Shovel Knight--who's using relics he could not have had at that point in the course of normal gameplay.

* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' and ''Series/Angel'' do this to a lesser extent in the companion episodes "Fool for Love" and "Darla." They follow the history of Spike and Darla respectively and both show the Whirlwind at the Boxer Rebellion. In "Fool for Love," this scene is from Spike's POV immediately after killing a Slayer. When Angel finds out he seems unhappy and jealous, coldly suggesting they leave. In "Darla," the same scene is shown from Angel's POV and you realize he had just gotten his soul -- his unhappiness is actually due to guilt over Spike's murder of the Slayer and he wants to leave to avoid killing more people.
