Added DiffLines:

* {{Subverted}} in ''Podcast/WithinTheWires.'' TheNarrator of the Relaxation Cassettes addresses the Institute's patient as "you" and feigns impartiality as a purely instructional, pseudo-omniscient figure in those exercises that mimic a typical guided meditation, but as her instructions deviate to become peculiarly specific, she eventually drops the façade to refer to herself as "I" at the end of the first cassette, and addresses the patient with increasing directness in subsequent installments.

Added DiffLines:

* Zig-zagged in ''VideoGame/TheStanleyParable''. The narrator speaks of Stanley in the third person, but at the same time ''you'' are Stanley, and the narrator isn't describing your actions so much as attempting to dictate them. Press the right buttons and the narrator will stop addressing you in the third person or even abandon narrating entirely and order you instead.

* The chapter-opening narration in ''BaldursGate'' uses this, as do the dreams- not surprising, given the [[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons provenance]] of the game.

Added DiffLines:

* Extremely common among ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' fics. More than a quarter of the fanfics on Website/ArchiveOfOurOwn pair one of the characters (with Sans being the most common) with the reader.
