** People tend to [[WhatAnIdiot exaggerate]] how silly it was for both [[IdiotBall Napoleon ''and'' Hitler]] to forget about the Russian winter while they were invading. The problem with this version of events is that they didn't forget. They knew that the Russian winter would impede their military action. This is why they both invaded ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_invasion_of_Russia during the]] [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Barbarossa early summer]]'', and tried to force a quick capitulation. The problem is, however, that the Russian and Soviet armies managed to survive using Fabian tactics until the winter started, at which point they knew they had the homefield advantage. So, the more reasonable solution to the Russia problem is to just not get into a land war in Russia ''at all''.

* Thanks to [[spoiler: Lapis trying to delay Jasper reaching Steven's home]] in Chapter Forty of ''Fanfic/ATriangleintheStars'', the already-ensuing storm becomes much, ''much'' worse, bringing [[spoiler: Jasper's ship]] down and in Chapter Forty-One threatening to tip over [[spoiler: the Stan O' War II]]. Because of this, [[spoiler: Stan, Peridot and Ford have to [[RainRainGoAway wait just outside the perimeter of the deadly waves and rain until the storm clears up before they can head on to Beach City]].]]

Contrast EmpathicEnvironment tropes, where the weather merely sets the mood rather than actually influencing events. Compare WeatherOfWar and GeniusLoci. The opposite of WeatherSavesTheDay.

* This is how [[UsefulNotes/NapoleonBonaparte Napoleon's]] campaign in Russia ended up with a colossal failure: as the French army was invading the Russian land all the way to Moscow, the winter came. And with it chilling blizzards that decimated the ill-equipped troops.

** Russians have taken to calling this phenomenon "General Winter", as though the season itself is part of the Russian military helping to defend its borders. Backfired on them during the Winter War with Finland, however, which was even harsher than what the Russians were used to.
* The Spanish Armada getting wrecked by a bunch of nasty thunderstorms while trying to invade Britain.
* When the UsefulNotes/{{Mongol|ia}}s invaded UsefulNotes/{{Japan}}, their assault was stopped in its tracks by a freak typhoon. Then the ''same exact thing'' happened when they tried again. Both sides took this as [[DeusExMachina divine providence]]; UsefulNotes/GenghisKhan decided to back off until {{God}} was in a better mood, while to the Japanese it was the origin of the word ''kamikaze'' ("divine wind").
* Recognizing weather and weather survival skills make up an important part of maritime and aviator training, both amateur and professional. Justified, since foul weather in the air or at the sea can be fatal.

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' thunderstorms roll across Hyrule occasionally, and it is ''not'' a good idea to be outside in one, especially while wearing metal equipment. Even ordinary rain is problematic, since wet surfaces become harder to climb. The ordinary rain becomes a major plot point when first traveling to Zora's Domain, as a malfunctioning Divine Beast Vah Ruta is making it rain constantly with its trunk.

* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'': Both movies (''Anime/PokemonTheFirstMovie'' and ''Anime/PokemonMewtwoReturns'') that involve Mewtwo have him create a storm around the island he's living on. The first time to make sure only the strongest trainers that he invited make it to the island, and the second time so that people will just leave him and his fellow clones alone. The first one works (almost too well in fact; since Ash and friends almost drown) but the second storm is breached by both Giovanni and the main characters.

* ''Videogame/MegaManX6'': Rainy Turtloid's stage has acid rains occuring after you go through certain parts of the stage, that will do DamageOverTime to your character. The rains are apparently generated by special machines, that you have to locate and destroy, but not before you destroy their shield generators first.

* When the Mongols invaded Japan led by Ghengis Khan, their assault was stopped in its tracks by a massive storm. Then the exact same thing happened when they tried again. Both sides took this as divine providence; Ghengis decided to back off until God was in a better mood, while to the Japanese it was the origin of the word ''kamikaze'' ("divine wind").
