* The ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty'' series is big on this trope, with most of the series' campaigns leaping back and forth between two or more (allied) groups. The groups do tend to be involved in separate theaters of war, however.
** ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps'' features Switching POV in order to brief Mason on what happened in his absence. In addition to the switching between Mason and Hudson, there's [[spoiler:a flashback mission from Reznov's POV]]. "Rebirth" is the series' most prominent application of the trope, as we get to see just ''how'' different the same event looked from the two main characters' perspectives.
** ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps2'' does much the same Switching POV trickery, this time between father and son - the former in [[UsefulNotes/TheEighties the 1980s]] witnessing the start of it all, the latter in [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture 2025]] resolving the conflict. In addition, there are parts of two levels where [[spoiler:Menendez]] is playable, as well as a mission from [[spoiler:Woods']] perspective.
** The ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare'' series is also an example. The first game alternates between the SAS and Force Recon characters until their union in the endgame. Modern Warfare 2 switches between a squad of Rangers defending the US and Task Force 141 after the person in charge of the attacks. 3, aside from a few one-off characters for certain missions, mainly focuses on [[spoiler:the remains of Task Force 141]] and a team of Delta Force operators in turn.

* '''Literature/Dracula''' is composed of a collection of journals and letters that describe the story from the point of view of various characters. It slips up in one case, where Mrs. Harker refers to herself in third person in chapter XXVI (where she is writing a journal but mentions the others made details that she didn't hear.)

* ''Fanfic/{{Developments}}'' maintains the same first-person present tense narration as KatawaShoujo, but switches between various members of the cast, rather than staying with Hisao.

* George R.R. Martin's ''ASongOfIceAndFire''. The viewpoint character changes every chapter and there have been 31 viewpoint characters through the first five books. This series is one of the more prominent examples due to the multitude of conflicting factions, almost all of which have at least one P.O.V. character representing them and sometimes multiple to represent different mindsets within each faction, fueling the GrayAndGreyMorality the series is famous for. For example, the Battle of Blackwater is mostly depicted from the P.O.V.s of Tyrion and Davos, two sympathetic characters on opposite sides.

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' does this frequently, with most of its LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters getting scenes from their point of view, including Harry Dresden's signature FirstPersonSmartass. Early on, this was something of a problem since it tended to shift perspective between paragraphs with little or no warning. Later, scene breaks were added and have been retroactively added to some of the earlier chapters.

* ''Literature/LorienLegacies'' does this regularly. From the second book (titled ''[[SequelNumberSnarlThe Rise Of Six]]'') the writer has been kind to show the switching narrator (between Marina and John) with different type fonts, and in the third book it properly announces which P.O.V it is, but from then the P.O.V still switches without it being shown.
