* Played straight in ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' after Guts awakens four days after the Eclipse and has a huge FreakOut after [[DespairEventHorizon fully realizing]] what had occurred. The chapter in question is aptly called "Awakening to a Nightmare".

* UrbanFantasy web series ''BrokenSaints'' uses this in Chapter 14, Act 2, as one of our heroes, Kamimura, walks alone through a very depressing and disturbing section of downtown Coast City--reflecting his own display of sorrow at what he sees around him.

* In ''{{Anime/Robotech}}'', one of the episodes is called ''(A) Rainy Night'', and is just that, a rather restrained, remarkably mature (in the proper sense of the word) conversation takes place between two of the major female characters about their love lives past and present, while a soaking rain comes down outside. One of the women is involved in a very dysfunctional relationship with a mecha officer, and the other tells her the story of how she met and got together with a by-then-deceased pilot. No explosions, no gunfire, not much comic relief, the ''entire episode'' is conversation and memories of a deceased character.

* "Sure Got Cold After The Rain Fell" by ZZTop knowingly uses the country metaphor, being from Texas, although it's a blues song. However, it doubles in that the desert is cold after rain falls, what with all the wet sand and all.

Added DiffLines:

* A huge rainstorm occurs halfway through ''Literature/AutobiographyOfRed'', while Geryon is still reeling from Herakles breaking up with him. In a variant of this trope, it isn't so much an EmpathicEnvironment as it is {{Irony}}: the storm is portrayed as dynamic and forceful, in contrast to Geryon's inertia.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/ShamanBlues'', the main character is fighting depression thorughout most of the story, and, fittingly, it rains nigh-all the time. Notably, when the intrigue is resolved and he's on his merry way to fixing his personal matters, it stops raining.

Contrast DramaticThunder and AStormIsComing, which indicate danger -- or if emotions, anger. This rain is seldom accompanied by wind, either, and will not produce LightningReveal. The opposite purpose to HappyRain; also contrast RaysFromHeaven for a complete inverse. Related to ShowerOfAngst and GraveClouds.

** It also rained when the Third Hokage died and when [[spoiler: Asuma died]]. There'a also a perpetual GrayRainOfDepression over the Hidden Rain Village; one of the characters even compares it to the country constantly crying.
