* It is [[SunglassesAtNight always night]] in ''VideoGame/DeusEx''. Or sunset. This is a game mechanics thing -- ''Deus Ex's'' sneaking system requires shadows. It fits perfectly into the game's theme.
** In ''VideoGame/DeusExHumanRevolution'', it's ''almost'' always night, overcast or raining. There's plenty of light in Jensen's apartment, though, so it can stream through the windows [[http://www.gamingdaily.co.uk/images/DeusEx3Trailer-2010-6-5/Deckard%20Appt.png just like in]] ''Film/BladeRunner''. In Hengsha, it's actually a perfectly sunny day, but the [[UrbanSegregation Upper City]] high above and the tall buildings block most of the light.

* Although it isn't cyberpunk (despite an army of cyborgs and more people being cyborgized daily), DavidWeber's ''[[Literature/EmpireFromTheAshes Armageddon Inheritance]]'' plays this straight. Earth is being sieged by AbsoluteXenophobe aliens, who [[ColonyDrop bombard it with asteroids]], the only starship went searching for help and disappeared, missiles and energy are running low... Asteroids that break through defenses usually hit oceans, filling air with water and salt and increasing albedo. Most scenes set on Earth during the siege have icy rain as a backdrop.

* Ray Bradbury's ''All Summer in a Day'' is a RaygunGothic example. It is set on Venus. It rains all the time, except for an hour every seven years. One of the schoolchildren in the story lived on another planet for a bit before her parents moved to Venus, and her constant tales of the sun there annoy everyone else, who are either jealous or think she's a liar. She is locked in a closet during the precious hour of the sun coming out.
* ''The Long Rain'' of Creator/RayBradbury.

Added DiffLines:

* Though not as noticeable or famous as the other East Asian cities in the list, UsefulNotes/{{Seoul}} could be considered as one, thanks to it's reputation as the tech-savvy capital of UsefulNotes/{{South Korea}}, heavy neon lights, and a monsoon season, which results in a [[http://65.media.tumblr.com/92d9cef7a8c3bf91aa137900fb549b8a/tumblr_o6k1faCmKt1ql3r9do1_540.jpg pretty amazing scenery]].

Added DiffLines:

* Though not strictly cyberpunk, ''[[Anime/{{K}} K: Missing Kings]]'' evokes the genre by using this look in the opening sequence to introduce the tech-tinged new antagonists, JUNGLE.

Added DiffLines:

* Scenes in ''Series/DarkAngel'', when they do take place during the day, are always cloudy and overcast. Though this could just be because the show takes place in UsefulNotes/{{Seattle}}.

* Defied in ''{{Transistor}}'', where the public [[WeatherControlMachine is able to control the weather via popular vote]], but when Red checks a terminal that contains a weather ballot, rain is specifically left off of it (the Transistor laments that they can't make it rain to cover their tracks.) [[spoiler: Near the end of the game, Red gets admin privileges for the same terminal, and is able to make it snow instead.]]
