* Scandinavia and Finland. Extremely tech-savvy countries, which are located at the occlusion zone of the Northern Atlantic low pressures. The presence of the Scandian mountains and the ensuing Föhn wind certainly doesn't make the climate drier or sunnier.

* ''Anime/GhostInTheShell'' and ''Innocence'', though in keeping with the show's status as the LighterAndSofter status, the weather is nicer in ''[[Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex Stand Alone Complex]]''. There are still more than a few episodes with rain, such as the fourth episode of the first season, where it's actually a minor plot point (a murder is covered up as a traffic accident caused by a rainstorm).

* In ''[[VideoGame/MicrosoftFlightSimulator Flight Simulator 2004]]'', due to the closure of real-world airport Meigs Field in Chicago, the series' long-standing default starting airport (which had always defaulted to clear and sunny weather), for this edition the default start was moved to Seattle Tacoma International Airport (KSEA), in rain.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VisualNovel/{{Planetarian}}'', the rain that has been pouring endlessly for the last thirty years [[spoiler:is a result of the nuclear fallout brought about by the great war that almost wiped out all of humanity.]]

* 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.
