* The 2003 BigBlackout in the northeastern U.S. and parts of Canada came on a blisteringly hot August day, especially in New York. Think of the people stuck in the subways and elevators, where it would be even hotter...
* During the summer of 1977, described as the "summer that [[NewYorkCity New York]] lost its mind", temperatures were skyrocketing, corruption was rampant, and the SerialKiller Son of Sam had made the city his personal hunting ground. A BigBlackout that July capped everything off, leading to riots and looting--it took DECADES for some neighborhoods to recover.

* Groudon causes a supernatural heat wave when awakened in ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Pokémon Ruby]]'', visually indicated by the area around Sootopolis City becoming brighter. In the remakes, the visual effects include a sun-like light in the sky regardless of the time of day, which suggests that Groudon accomplishes this by ''creating a miniature sun inside the Pokémon world's atmosphere''.

** In-battle, Pokémon with the move Sunny Day or the ability Drought can cause harsh sunlight to shine down for up to five turns, causing various effects (such as strengthing Fire-type attacks, weakening Water-type attacks, and cutting out the charge time of the Grass-type move Solar Beam). In ''[[VideoGameRemake Omega Ruby]]'', Groudon gets an updated version of the Drought ability in its Primal form, in [[ThirstyDesert Desolate Land]]. This effect has no time limit as long as Primal Groudon is on the field, can't be overridden by other standard weather conditions (save for Primal Kyogre's [[TheGreatFlood Primordial Sea]] and Mega Rayquaza's Delta Stream), and, while it's active, Water-type moves will not function at all ([[FridgeLogic though, apparently, Ice-type moves are not affected]]).

** Heat is a recurring theme in ''TheStranger'', it's also brutally hot on the day of Mme. Meursault's funeral. Meursault himself lampshades the trope before his trial when he muses that when it became hot again, he knew something was going to happen.

* One episode of ''TheBoondocks'' featured a memorable pastiche of ''Do the Right Thing'', also set on The Hottest Day Of The Year... in February. Huey is the only one who remembers that it's actually winter, and is wearing a thick coat throughout the episde.

* One In ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks'' episode of ''TheBoondocks'' featured "The Block Is Hot", there's a memorable pastiche of ''Do sudden heat wave in the Right Thing'', also set on The Hottest Day Of The Year... in middle of February. Huey is the only one who remembers that it's actually winter, and (who is wearing a thick coat throughout jacket in case it starts snowing again) notes how the episde.heat seems to drive people crazy. Eventually, the events of the episode culminate in [[ItMakesSenseInContext mobs of people rioting over a lemonade stand]]. And then the snow starts falling again, so everyone comes back to their senses.
