* In ''Film/FlashGordon'' the movie, alien emperor Ming the Merciless has a series of buttons entitled "Hurricane", "Tornado" and "Hot Hail". There's also one that says "Earth Quake", strangely enough.

** Gears of War 4 ups the ante with windflares, which are localized hurricane/tornado combos featuring winds intense enough to shred buildings and hurl vehicles through the air, miles from the actual vortex. They're accompanied by bizarre laser-like discharges of continuous and ''mobile'' lightning which can and will kill you if you don't evade them.

* A plot device in the film ''Film/IKnowWhereImGoing!'': a gale stops Joan Webster from being able to crossover to the Island of Kiloran, delaying her marriage to a rich man. Romantic shenanigans ensue.

* As per the ''Dungeons and Dragons'' example above, the third chapter of ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights: Hordes of the Underdark'' is set on the eighth level of the [[IDontLikeTheSoundOfThaTPlace Nine Hells]], a frozen plane with a constant blizzard that deals cold damage. By that level your party is probably badass enough to have a few elemental-resistance items sitting around to ensure you can walk untouched through the storm.

* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', it is not a good idea to stick around when the thermometer drops faster than a stone. And, that's even beyond the fact that BizarreSeasons giving long, hellish Winters are in play. More specifically, a sudden, localised drop means you might just be due a visit from the [[HumanoidAbomination Others]] [[ZombieApocalypse and their Wights]]. [[AnIcePerson They like the cold]]. It (and, its carry-toy commonalty called "a freezing fog bank") either follows them like an obedient puppy, or they just need the general conditions to be right to play with it. Either way, it's hinted they can use ice and snow in ways [[WeatherOfWar that can turn very deadly, very quickly]]: their ice swords and armour are far from normal, for starters. And, then, there are whatever "ice spiders" are. Or, any other tricks they might well have up their sleeves, [[spoiler: like, maybe... sea-ice bridges or self-building siege-ramps]]. And, Winter has come.

* ''Literature/TheGirlFromTheMiraclesDistrict'': the entire city is criss-crossed with energy lines that have some dark and foul magic buried deep down. Whenever a storm comes, it causes all of this to boil to the surface, meaning that if you're caught outside during a bad weather - or even inside, in some cases - you can be turned into a mindless monster.

* ''Literature/TheTaking'' starts off with an unnatural storm enveloping the entire world, starting with impossibly dense waterspouts that feed record rainfall worldwide. The rain itself even feels unclean. It's far from the worst thing to show up that night, however.

* In ''TabletopGame/RocketAge'' hostile weather is a serious danger to the heroes, understandable considering that includes Venusian rainstorms (thankfully not acidic), Martian sandstorms and lightning storms in the upper atmospheres of Gas Giants.
