A subtrope of EmpathicEnvironment. Sometimes combined with DramaticThunder. Often, obviously, {{foreshadow|ing}}ed by AStormIsComing. At the end, SandInMyEyes may be expressed by blaming the wetness on their faces as rainfall. Characters often DiesWideOpen, so the rain can fall into their open eyes and confirm HesDeadJim. (Though, this is more common in animation, because trying it in live-action would become {{Narm}} rather quickly due to the "dead" characters [[{{Corpsing}} reflexively closing their eyes]].) Compare and contrast with BattleAmongstTheFlames.

* The iconic climax of the 33rd episode of ''Series/ReturnOfUltraman'' "The Boy and the Monster Master" is a long-take shot of a rainy battle between Ultraman Jack and the {{kaiju}} Muruchi at an oil refinery that serves to capture the tragedy of Jack having to fight Muruchi (long story short: Muruchi went on a rampage when its alien master was killed by prejudiced humans).

* ''Series/UltramanLeo'' featured one in episode 40 between Leo and the MonsterOfTheWeek Silver Bloome [[spoiler:that had killed many of his friends]], with Leo's emotionally-charged fury towards the kaiju making the scene even more effective.

* ''IWA Jucio Final IV''(otherwise known as judgment day) happened in a Carolina Puerto Rico open ballpark in front 10,000+fans who held their ground despite being rained on. Tigresa's opponent, April Hunter, happened to be wearing a white shirt. El Illegal Chicano and Homicide went to the now muddy dugout. Then former match was then taken up to eleven with Miguel Perez, Slash Venom, Victor the Bodyguard and Chett Jablonski brawling all around the park. There [[Wrestling/{{TNA}} was a four way X match]] won by blitz and as if that wasn't enough of a platform for storm based puns, La Artilleria Pesada were there too.
* Around the same time as the IWA Puerto Rico event Bad Boys Of Wrestling also had an outdoor show that got rained on. Unlike the IWA though, the crowd turnout was poor. Lexie Fyfe claimed it was slippery and [[TryingToCatchMeFightingDirty her feet got caught in the ropes while pinning Syren]].
* LLF's primary arena is open air, so wrestlers just have to bear it when rain falls. Fans are free to flee to drier ground, vacated seats providing Poly Star and Wrestling/{{Jacqueline}} with weapons during their March 17 2006 match.

* The Battle of Agincourt in Creator/KennethBranagh's version of Shakespeare's ''HenryV''. Which, to be fair, actually was fought in the rain. And, unlike most of the battles here, the rain turns the battlefield into a muddy slaughterhouse -- again, this is historically accurate.

* During the first part of the final battle of ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventureDiamondIsUnbreakbale'', it's heavily raining. This actually plays a factor in the fight because the nearby heroes can't hear the sounds of the battle over the rain and [[spoiler: Stray Cat's air bubbles are visible due to creating a distortion in the rain.]]
