* In ''ComicBook/ZombiesChristmasCarol'', mankind's dim prospects and the encroaching zombies have made the Ghost of Christmas Present into a lumpy, troll-like figure who's somewhere between full to bursting and emaciated.

Subtrope of RoyaltySuperpower. See also NoOntologicalInertia, TerminallyDependentSociety and GeniusLoci. If the place has this effect on its inhabitants, it's a FisherKingdom. If you are looking for the film of the same name, hop on over to ''Film/TheFisherKing''.

Subtrope If it's an explicit power of the ruler rather than the link being merely figurative, then it's also RoyaltySuperpower.

* ''Literature/HarryPotter'': Though he is relatively incompetent as Minister of Magic, Cornelius Fudge was still a good person, and as such, the wizarding world was a joyous place. Diagon Alley was lively and fun. Other wizarding communities were peaceful and happy. When Voldemort started to have a grip over the wizarding world in the sixth book (and downright took complete control in the seventh), Diagon Alley became barren and other wizarding (and non-wizarding) communities became dark, dreary, and chilly. Admittedly, the earlier is justified in that the Death Eaters roamed Diagon Alley, and the latter is justified because Voldemort had Dementors roaming through the villages, and they have that sort of effect on their current environment.

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]]).

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.]]

* The reason why [[WebComic/{{Homestuck}} Beforus]] was a happier place is because Feferi ruled it benevolently. It had highbloods caring for lowbloods and the [[CrapSaccharineWorld planet]] was a happier place overall. Now it's Alternia, [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen not]] [[ProudWarriorRace so]] [[CrapSackWorld much]].

* In ''VideoGame/ShadowWarrior2013'', the demon maiden Ameonna brings life-giving rain to the demon world, but only when she's crying. When she meets and falls in love with Hoji, it starts a slow decline into their world's destruction, causing Enma to forbid them from seeing each other. [[spoiler: Hoji, scorned by this, poisons her sending her in a fit of grief and envy, damning the world of demons to destruction unless the Nobitsura Kage is reforged and an immortal is sacrificed to revive her.]]

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast'' features the DarkWorld, originally known as the Sacred Realm before it fell under Ganon's rule and was warped into a [[MirrorWorld dark and twisted version of Hyrule]]. The Dark World has the ability to turn anyone who ventures into it without the Moon Pearl into an animal or monster supposedly reflecting their "true nature" - e.g., a bully becomes a fanged and horned demon, and an indecisive kid becomes a bouncy pink immobile ball; hence it is also a FisherKingdom. Link becomes a helpless pink bunny, and Ganon, himself, is a massive boar.
** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'', Zelda's castle and city become corrupted once Ganon takes control of them.

Though not seen, Zelda also mentions that the Sacred Realm has once again become a place of evil due to Ganondorf's pouring of his malice into the Triforce when he attempted to gain possession of it. [[spoiler:It becomes his prison after his defeat when the Sages seal him inside the Dark Realm.]]
