* After a NewhartPhoneCall intro, "Dead End" by MindInABox becomes a rather effective SecondPersonNarration.

* Central gimmick of the podstory ''Podcast/{{Pseudopod}}'' episode "[[http://pseudopod.org/2008/03/14/pseudopod-81-its-easy-to-make-a-sandwich/ It's Easy to Make a Sandwich]]." It alternates between deep immersion and a narratorish, slightly hectoring tone:
-->"You make minimum wage and you smell like tuna all the time.

** This is also common with "Reader x [insert character(s) here]" stories, where the second person narration is for the purpose for the reader to SelfInsert themselves into the story. CharacterizationTags are often used to indicate the state of the reader or character(s) they're with in the story such as "shy!Reader" or "Teen![[Film/TheAvengers Steve Rogers]]". Despite the use of the "x", quite a few Reader x Character(s) stories aren't actually shipping, some people just really want to hang with a character from/the cast of of their favorite thing. Much like other examples, quality varies and it can fall into the Sue trap, though personal enjoyment mostly depends on whether or not you're keen on WishFulfillment.

* Used to very good effect by Matthew Stover in the novelization of ''Film/StarWars: Film/RevengeOfTheSith''. While most of the book is written in third person, Stover breaks out the second person narration when he moves into an in-depth character study, which he always signals with the phrase "This is what it feels like to be X."

* The novelization of ''Literature/RevengeOfTheSith'' includes three sections that each begin with "This is how it feels to be Anakin Skywalker," putting the reader into Anakin's mind. These, along with passages introducing the major characters, are also in {{present tense|Narrative}}.


Added DiffLines:

* "...And it Comes Out Here" by Creator/LesterDelRey is structured as a monologue from a time traveler, telling 'you' what 'you' are about to do. In this case, 'you' is a distinct character, the time traveler's younger self.

* ''Literature/AVisitFromTheGoonSquad'', which shifts the perspective of the narration in every chapter, uses this for chapter 10.
