Added DiffLines:

* Tenzin from ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' is prone to reflexively [[BlowYouAway airbending]] when annoyed, causing the robes and cape he almost always wears to billow dramatically. It's occasionally played straight, but far more commonly done for humour value.

* A DramaticWind blows in right before Natsuki's "Marilyn Monroe moment" in episode 4 of ''Anime/{{Mai-HiME}}''. Cue stunned looks from Mai, Mikoto and Takeda, followed by one of the reddest full-face {{Luminescent Blush}}es in anime.
* ''MermaidMelodyPichiPichiPitch'', any dramatic scene that doesn't take place indoors or underwater (and even then, the underwater ones get it too some days... physics has no hold in this series). It seems to be more of a "Dramatic Current" or "Dramatic Wave"
* ''Anime/{{Monster}}'' absolutely thrives off of this.
* In ''Manga/NausicaaOfTheValleyOfTheWind'', Nausicaa's hair floats before she goes berserk, even breaking a sword with a stick!
** The floating hair-variant of DramaticWind seems to be a fairly standard trope in [[Creator/HayaoMiyazaki Miyazaki]] films.
*** The same thing happens with [[Anime/KikisDeliveryService Kiki's]] hair when she's about to take off on her broom.
*** Also see the ''Anime/PrincessMononoke'' example below.
* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' uses Dramatic Wind almost all the time, usually with accompanying windswept leaves for added effect.
** A particularly impressive use of Dramatic Wind was right after the moment Hinata confesses her feelings. WhenSheSmiles, alright...
* The opening credits of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''. In this example, however, it's a well-placed case of [[BaitAndSwitchCredits hiding the true nature of the show]].

** ''End of Evangelion'' takes this trope UpToEleven: when the über pissed-off Unit 01 emerges from the ruins of NERV HQ, it's enveloped in a giant ''tornado'' and all we see is a silhouette, a pair of energy wings and two GlowingEyesOfDoom. The soldiers nearby are completely terrified by it. Possible extra points for the wind being caused by Unit 01 itself which means that Yui is GenreSavvy.
* In ''Anime/PrincessMononoke'', when Ashitaka learns about the history of [[AdventureTowns Irontown]], the wind ruffles his hair. And he's inside a ''bar''.
** this also happens whenever his curse starts up.
* Early episodes of ''Anime/RanmaOneHalf'', particularly Akane's face-off with Kuno in episode 2.

* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'', commonly seen in aforementioned anime in the form of an emblazoned cape worn by Kamina or [[FanNickname Captain Garlock]] for dramatic flair; alternately, in the form of the flag of the Great Gurren-dan. Notable for the fact this has even been shown to occur in space; or at the very least, the upper stratosphere.
** Could be caused by Spiral Energy--because, you know, [[CrazyAwesome Kamina and Simon are just that awesome.]]
** It's justified since the primary law of physics in the setting is RuleOfCool.

** In the first movie, just before the final confrontation with Sunset Shimmer, dark clouds gather overhead and the night gets appropriately windy.
** ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsRainbowRocks Rainbow Rocks]]'':
*** In the prologue, the Dazzlings' discovery of Equestrian magic in the human world, marking the start of their Evil Plan, is during an appropriately windy night (the same as the climax of the first movie, in fact).
*** Later, the Rainbooms stepping into the fight for the final battle is also accompanied by some dramatic wind blowing their hair and clothes.
** ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsFriendshipGames Friendship Games]]'':
*** For their solo parts in the full version of the "ACADECA" song, both Twilight and Sunset have some wind ruffling their hair, despite being theoretically inside.
*** As with the climaxes of the previous movies, the wind begins blowing the girls' hair as soon as [[spoiler:Twilight Sparkle starts walking to the center of the front yard, ready to unleash the magic. Afterward, it seems that holes in the fabric of reality can cause some serious drafts]].

* Parodied in an episode of ''{{Freakazoid}}'' - at one point, The Lobe was standing indoors making a rant with full dramatic wind. The camera then zoomed out to show a fan specially set up to achieve this effect.
* [[TinyToonAdventures Plucky Duck]] parodies it in "The Return of the Toxic Revenger", where he does his [[InTheNameOfTheMoon dramatic intro]], notices a lack of this trope and goes offscreen to turn on a giant fan. Him being an {{expy}} of Daffy Duck, of ''course'' it switches itself to maximum power and blows him away.
* Parodied in an episode of WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom Where Danny is split into his "superhero" side and his "normal teen" side. The superhero side constantly has his hair and bedsheet cape blowing in a nonexistant wind.
* Lightly parodied in ''{{Undergrads}}'': when the hero's love interest shows up, there is a light breeze playing with her hair. They are indoors.
* ''CloudyWithAChanceOfMeatballs'' has Flint's labcoat billowing towards the beginning of the movie. The commentary reveals that the idea was that Flint has a fan offscreen to make his life seem more dramatic.
* [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Princess Celestia]] seems to have it built into her hair, as does Princess Luna from Season 2 onward.

Added DiffLines:

** Goddess [[VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising Palutena]] has long billowing hair that is always flowing in the wind, presumably created by her for this very purpose. This actually has an effect on gameplay - any other characters near her ''actually get pushed by the wind.'' It's an exceedingly weak effect that's difficult to notice even zoomed-in against an unmoving opponent, but it's there.
