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.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''LightNovelSwordArtOnline'', most of the story is told from Kirito's first-person POV, but occasionally, the perspective will shift to a third-person POV centered around another character, and Lisbeth has two first-person POV segments- one in her story in Volume 2, and a short scene in Volume 4.
* 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.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/OneYear'' is told by first person narration, a role that various members of the ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' cast and [[OriginalCharacter OCs]] take turns playing.

* In ''FanFic/ThisBites'', the entirety of [[spoiler: the event with Baron Omatsuri]] is told through the perspectives of people around the world [[spoiler: as they listen to the SBS and the horror that the Straw Hats have found themselves in.]]

* The ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' story ''[[Fanfic/TwiceUponAnAge All This Sh*t is Twice as Weird]]'' does this, with most chapters having different points of view than those which immediately precede or follow them. A few chapters divide the point of view between the two main characters; a few others are presented as letters written by or to various members of the cast.

* ''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.)

* 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.

* ''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.
