* The ''WesternAnimation/TimeFixersNicktoonsOfTheFuture'' story, "The Great Zappy Case" features this when Tammy and Tommy are on trial after being accused of stealing the Zappy Award from Fairy World. Each character gives their accounts on what they were doing beforehand with Tommy's version portraying Tammy as a ValleyGirl, Tammy's version making Tommy act like an AnnoyingYoungerSibling, and Junior's story making everyone act happy all the time. Interesting enough, the first two stories feature Junior crying and running away when he sees Tammy and Tommy fighting, but Junior's story features him coming over to stop them. His version ends up being the closest to what really happened.

Josh remembers Drake as an unfriendly jerk who let a bunch of girls cut in line, deliberately bought the last foam finger to prevent him from buying it and then thumped him over the head with it. Drake remembers Josh as an obnoxious jerk who accosted Drake for letting a dying British orphan cut in line and then tackled him for buying the last foam finger and. Near the end, Megan brings in the guy who sold them the foam finger to tell them the real story: Drake and Josh got along really well when they met and there were no hard feelings when Drake bought the last foam finger, but Josh tackled Drake, thinking he had thumped him over the head, not knowing it was actually [[spoiler: a toddler-aged Megan who threw a cookie at his head.]]

* Episode "Between Friends" of ''WesternAnimation/{{Babar}}'' has Celeste and Zephir suing each other after a road accident between Celeste's car and Zephir's bike going into Court with Babar as judge. They both say they own versions Rashomon-style portraying the other as a crazy driver and themselves as the slow-pacing polite and responsable driver.

* The episode "POV" from ''Fanfic/CalvinAndHobbesTheSeries''. The framing device is Elliot coming home to find that the gang have been trashing his house. Every member steps forward in turn to tell their version of events, either [[DracoInLeatherPants glorifying themselves]], [[RonTheDeathEater demonizing others]], [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs or both]]. Except for Calvin, who just turns the story into a spy drama.

Also, none of them explain [[NoodleIncident whatever happened to the bathroom]], though it was enough to leave Elliot in shock.

* The YTV program ''Series/RadioActive'' does this in one episode -- one student tries to find out what happened to cause a CD to get damaged, and so asks the other students. Each one had a different report on what happened in the room, how everyone acted and what happened to the CD (one student claims he caught it in his teeth after another threw it at him). The only constant in any of them is one of the students reading a comic book wearing a hat (which changes depending on who's telling it). That student's retelling consists entirely of a shot of a comic book while the voices of the other cast members can be heard babbling incoherently in the background.

* ''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.

* ''Film/HeLovesMeHeLovesMeNot'', a French film, plays with this by having the first half or so of the film follow a girl who a man is apparently cheating on (and going to leave) his wife with her. However, he repeatedly fails to show up at all to their arranged meetings. Growing increasingly distraught, she finally [[spoiler:attempts suicide]]. In the second half, [[spoiler:it's from the man's point of view, and it's revealed that he isn't even aware that she exists, and the entire relationship was the product of her being insane]].

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/AaahhRealMonsters'' the viewfinder the Gromble uses to read the students' memories of their scares breaks down, so he just tries asking the PowerTrio how they managed to scare everyone at the opera. Ickus recounts the story as a FilmNoir (with him as the hero) while Oblina recounts it by casting herself as an imperturbable MarySue superheroine. The Gromble, annoyed by their blatant fabrications, asks the less egotistical Krumm what happened, but he narrates a childish, simplistic set of events that only clearly indicates that Ickus and Oblina spent most of the assignment arguing. Finally the viewfinder is fixed and he forces all three of them on it to determine the true course of events -- [[spoiler:it turns out that the three kept screwing up the basic parts of the plan until they accidentally landed in the middle of the concert floor, at which point they panicked but fortunately so did the humans they landed in front of and soon the entire building was evacuated]]. Needless to say, the Gromble was [[SadistTeacher only too happy]] to punish them for lying.

* Happens in the ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyBravo'' episode "Rashomoron". Interestingly enough, the ''first'' story is the closest to the truth (except for the unicorn), and the episode ends with [[TheDitz Johnny's]] account, which is barely even the same plot. It then turns out that there really WAS a Unicorn.

** One episode open with the Trio and Irwin dangling from a rope over a pit. Irwin asks how they got into that mess and the others conclude that it was due to them meeting [[TheGrimReaper Grim]]. Billy and Grim's versions are radically different with the former's portraying him and Mandy as space rangers who go on an adventure across the earth to gather Grim's skull, robe, and scythe to fully summon him and he then agrees to be their friend. Grim's is sympathetic and portrays himself as a hotshot in the underworld who lost to an evil Mandy in a duel and had to be her friend/servant as a result. Mandy gets fed up with their tall tales and briefly sums up the pilot episode as it happened while clips play. Everyone dismisses this story, with Grim saying "Oh please, [[ArtEvolution that didn't even look like us]]". Irwin is amazed at the stories but then says he was asking how they ended up hanging on the rope. It acts like a lead in to another Rashomon-style story, but the episode ends as they fall and get eaten by the monster they're hanging over.

* In ''Surveillance'' This is the non-linear style way David Lynch tells a story of a murder from the surviving dirty cop to the drug stealing criminals eventually the kid reveals(sort of)what actually happens.
