* We always follow Literature/HarryPotter's point of view throughout the series, with the exception of the opening chapters of ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndThePhilosophersStone Philosopher's Stone]]'', ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire Goblet of Fire]]'', ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheHalfBloodPrince Half-Blood Prince]]'' (first two chapters), and ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows Deathly Hallows]]'', which have important establishing events that Harry's not present for (although in the case of ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire Goblet of Fire]]'', he sees them in a dream).

** There is also, somewhat bizarrely, a couple of sentences from Ron's point of view as he knocks out the troll in ''Philosopher's Stone''. Overall, point of view seems a little more flexible in book 1 than it is later in the series.

* ''MyImmortal'', although the issue is confused by bad writing. The POV character is usually Ebony, but one chapter starts with a note that this chapter is from "Darko"'s point of view. This rule is followed for a bit, but then one line starts with "Draco, Ebory and I", and after that it's back to Ebony's point of view.

* In the light novels of ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDXD'', after [[spoiler: Issei defeats Raiser]], the light novels show that Lord Gremory and Lord Phenex discuss about how the engagement party ended, and that Lord Gremory cannot believe that her daughter was able to get the Welsh Dragon as her servant. In the anime, it shows the same events but from Sirzechs and Grayfia's point of view about why lent Issei the griffon as a last resort and his thoughts on the Welsh Dragon joining. Grayfia then notes that Sirzechs seems to be enjoying it, [[spoiler: probably reminding him and Grayfia's circumstances back then.]] And in the main storyline, usually either [[TheLancer Kiba]] or [[BadassTeacher Azazel]] get to be the focus of the narration whenever Issei isn't around.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Roleplay/ThereIsNoGATEWeDidNotFightThere'', multiple story posts and interludes often make use of the points of view of supporting characters. That isn't to say that Kytheus, the protagonist, doesn't get a lot of screentime, though.

* In the manga for ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', the POV and first person narration occasionally switches around, most often focusing on Soji, but sometimes going to one of his friends.
