* The ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' series, and its spinoffs, all base themselves off this trope. In a series of games where you need to make sure your client isn't found guilty, and find a substitute killer/kidnapper/thief/etc., you find that your client's testimony is very different from that of any witness or supposition by the prosecutor.

** ''Plague of Shadows'' is the only currently released Campaign DLC, and features [[MadScientist Plague Knight]], a hyperactive and slightly psychotic alchemist and former Knight of the Order of No Quarter, [[HeroOfAnotherStory on his own quest to]] [[AntiHero craft the Ultimate Potion to become the most powerful alchemist in the land.]][[spoiler: [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes Or maybe not?..]] ]] This story runs more-or-less parallel with Shovel Knight's story, and even changes a little bit to reflect on Plague Knight's own perspective; for example, Shovel Knight is shown to be more of a JerkAss to the Knights than in his own campaign, though this is speculated to be because Plague Knight has JerkAss tendencies himself, and so sees Shovel Knights actions as as unheroic as he himself is. It also reveals certain unexplained parts of the the main game as the results of Plague Knight's doing.
** The two other, unreleased campaigns will feature [[TheUsurper King Knight]] and [[OurLichesAreDifferent Spectre Knight]], both indicated to take place during the two first campaigns as well, [[spoiler: and perhaps with the same romantic bent as the two first ones.]]

* 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.

* Mahfouz used the same technique in ''Akhenaten: Dweller in Truth'', which tells the story of Pharaoh Akhenaten's short reign and scandalous behaviour from the POV of more than a dozen different characters. Most of them agree on ''what'' happened, though ''why'' is another matter... The only thing [[DramaticIrony most of them agree on]] is that this monotheism business [[ForegoneConclusion died with the Pharaoh]].

* In ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' Season 11, the transport the protagonists are riding in mysteriously crash lands on a remote planet, and one of the subplots if figuring out what exactly happened. In a series of flashbacks, it shows that ''all'' of the protagonists had done something that could have possibly crashed the ship, from distracting the pilot to accidentally shutting down the engines. This throws up the question of which of them caused the crash, or if it was all of their combined efforts that did it. Finally, it's revealed later that an alien tractor beam forcibly pulled the ship to the planet.
