* In ''VideoGame/{{Fe}}'', territories occupied by the [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Silent Ones]] are overcast with an [[OminousFog ominous]] [[RedSkyTakeWarning red-orange haze]]. Once they are driven out and the animals liberated, the [[CueTheSun skies clear]] and the colors return to the standard [[DeliberatelyMonochrome blue-violet palette]].

May require a king of [[RoyalBlood the right family]]. Of course, in those works, the rightful king tends to be the good king.

** [[spoiler:Al-Warth itself turns out to be an even bigger one, with Ende's decision to recognize it as existing being all that sustains Al-Warth's existence. When he stops caring about it, the universe begins to literally come apart at the seams.]]

** [[VideoGame/ShadowWarrior2 According to the sequel]], there's a different stream of fluids she can cry out - of her other mouth. As such, the demon world has chaotically merged with Earth to form a constantly shifting procedurally generated killing floor. Everything sucks unless you're having as much fun murdering everything in sight, as Ameonna has during her sex tapes.

* Although ''[[Film/PleasantVille Pleasantville]]'' slowly changes to color throughout the film, the town only fully changes over to become a fully realized world after both [[spoiler:George and The Mayor]] are changed in quick succession. Either character(or both) might be considered the Fisher King in this case as the former was [[spoiler:the last of the in-show "Protagonist Family" to change]] and sets off an entire crowd when he does change while the latter [[spoiler:is the highest authority in the town]] and is the only character to actually be shown changing on-screen.

to:

* The 2003 movie version of ''Film/PeterPan'' uses this trope abundantly; Neverland is locked in winter when Peter is away, and rapidly transforms into summer when he returns. Later, Hook and the pirates assume that because it's snowing and a raging storm has suddenly appeared, Peter has to be dead ([[spoiler:he's not, he's grieving for Tinkerbell's HeroicSacrifice]]). When the storm suddenly becomes a shining summer day ([[spoiler:when Tinkerbell returns to life]]), Hook immediately realizes that it means Peter's still alive.

* J.M. Barrie's ''PeterPan'' works this way. Neverland awakes when Peter returns. When he becomes angry, the land is covered in storms. When he's happy, it's sunny and summer.

* The royal house of A.L. Phillips's ''Literature/TheQuestOfTheUnaligned'' gained their ability to control all four elements by magically binding themselves to the land. Unfortunately, this means that if the royal couple's magic becomes unbalanced, so does Caederan. [[spoiler: A large part of the story's plot stems from the fact that the current King and Queen have become "[[BlowYouAway ruahks]] in all but name," resulting in droughts, tornadoes, cyclones, and excessive thunderstorms.]]

* In novel ''Inne Pieśni'' (''Other Songs'') by Polish author Creator/JacekDukaj ([[GushingAboutShowsYouLike pity the fact he's not translated into English, guys and girls!]]), world is ruled by both "casual" kings (who do not exhibit this trope) and ''kratistoi'', virtually demigods whose {{Determinator}}[[UpToEleven -plus]] level force of will influences both people and land of their domains.

* In ''Disney/{{Moana}}'', after [[TricksterGod Maui]] stole [[CosmicKeystone the Heart of]] [[MotherNature Te Fiti]], which contained the power of creation, Te Fiti transformed into a [[MadGod corrupted lava giant known as]] Te Ka. The things she created began to became unmade, making the seas turbulent and causing life on the islands to begin dying off. The title character's quest to return the Heart is jumpstarted when the blight reaches her home island of Motunui.

The land of the Fisher King not only reflects the kind of rule they impose, but their moral alignment, state of health, and in some cases even their ''mood''. ("The Land and the King are One.") In this kingdom the "divine right of kings" extends to a righteous link with the land. This is either a blessing or a curse, because though their joy [[CueTheSun brings]] [[{{Arcadia}} eternal spring]] and [[FertileFeet bounty]], their sadness and anger heralds [[GraveClouds rain]] and [[DramaticThunder thunderstorms]] respectively. If the king is dying or goes mad, expect [[{{Shadowland}} the kingdom]] to [[MysticalPlague become sickly]] and its inhabitants unhinged. If he's replaced by a villain, they either "inherit" the link or the kingdom itself resents this affront to the natural order and becomes a truly depressing {{Mordor}}-like place to live (or even [[EvilIsDeathlyCold wintry]]). It is much more justifiable in-universe, when the rulers are supernatural in any way. At other times it is just RuleOfDrama and EmpathicEnvironment having their hand in that. A more mundane explanation that could apply for everything but the weather, is that a good and respectful ruler cares about the well-being of his land and his subjects and invests time and effort to make his kingdom as pleasant as possible, while a selfish and uncaring one [[DespotismJustifiesTheMeans will only care for his own prosperity at everyone else's misery.]]
