Added DiffLines:

* {{Averted}} in ''Fanfic/ATriangleintheStars'', particularly with the dark, ugly storm that occurs much later in the story. It doesn't go away after Bill and Steven settle their issues in Chapter Forty-Four, and is actually [[{{Lampshade}} lampshaded by the narrative]].

* A classic episode of ''Series/TheXFiles'' "Rain King" had Mulder and Scully investigating a swindler who claimed to be able to make it rain (and sold this skill to drought-struck communities). Soon enough, they discover the man's ex-wife believes she has a sort of antagonistic version of this trope in effect (the sky seemed to cry on her wedding day, and the clouds laughed at her when she got divorced) and that is behind her ex-husband's apparent abilities. In fact, [[spoiler:she has a nerdy secret admirer who ''actually'' has this relationship with the weather, it reflected ''his'' moods when she married another man and when she finally left that guy. He had been affecting the weather for her ex's business out of guilt]].

* ''Film/MrAndMrsSmith''. We're shown in a flashback how the protagonists first fell in love. [[DramaticThunder Thunder sounds]] when things start heating up between the protagonists during their MatingDance.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Theatre/{{Spamalot}}'', "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life" takes place in [[ExactWords a dark and very expensive forest]] to show how distraught Arthur is at his defeat at the hands of the French Taunters. The trope is neatly subverted for the rest of the song, as it starts to rain despite Arthur and Patsy being noticeably happier with the situation.

Added DiffLines:

* It's raining for all of the revolution in ''Theatre/LesMiserables'', despite the fact that it takes place in June. This is especially noticeable in the aptly-named "Little Fail of Rain", when [[spoiler:Eponine is dying]], and in "Javert's [[spoiler:suicide]]", which is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin.
* Lampshaded in ''Theatre/TheDrowsyChaperone'', when the Man in the Chair says that "[Janet] is bathed in the blue light of a sympathetic moon, which is ridiculous because it's the middle of the day.".

* Constantly used in ''VisualNovel/LittleBusters'', where the weather will change on a coin flip; when someone's DarkAndTroubledPast catches up with them, it starts to pour even when it was sunny seconds ago. In one route, the weather is a plot point, snowing in late spring when the world and the heroine of said route are both getting messed up. [[spoiler:Turns out it's all intentional. The setting was a dream world made from memories and data from the AkashicRecord, where the titular baseball team has to form bonds and get past their [[DysfunctionJunction many, varied traumas]], so everything, including the weather, reacts to their emotional states.]]

* Even O. Henry got in on the trope with the short story "The Last Leaf" ... but if you're familiar with O. Henry, you know there's a surprise in TheStinger.
