* ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime 3'': The Space Pirate Homeworld has acidic rain, so Samus has to spend a good amount of time finding a special device that protects her (which is not this trope). However, after she does all that, she is called outside to meet with her superior, Admiral Dane, a normal human with no protection. Players may be annoyed at the GameplayAndStorySegregation, until they notice that it is not raining around Dane. Many players were annoyed that the acidic rain conveniently stopped for this guy, until they looked around and realize that it is ''only'' not raining around Dane. Then they look up and see his Improvised Umbrella: ''His personal flagship, hanging in geosynchronous orbit above his head''. There's a reason the man is a MemeticBadass in a universe that contains [[ShroudedInMyth Samus Aran]].

* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': Sigrun is shown using a metal sheet as one in Chapter 15. The trope occurs surprisingly little, considering the comic's frequent bad weather and the fact that only half the crew members have a hood as part of their outfit.

* In and episode of ''Series/{{Friends}}'', Chandler was out on Monica's balcony smoking when it began to rain. When everyone refused to allow him back inside with his cigarette, he picked up the lid of her charcoal grill for an umbrella.

* Two of the cast of ''TenjouTenge'' once nicked a sign/billboard during heavy rain. For a humorous bonus, the sign warned "Beware of Thieves."

* ''VideoGame/DontStarve'': The Pretty Parasoul is made out of twigs, cut grass, and petals. While it doesn't provide as much rain protection as the regular Umbrella, it is easier to craft and provides a sanity boost when held.

* In ''ComicBook/PS238'', Guardian Angel's power of 'protection from basically anything and everything' also protects her from rain, whether she wants such protection or not. It appears as if the rain is hitting a spherical energy shield... and for that reason, she always has to bring an umbrella when she goes out in the rain, to avoid revealing her [[TheMasquerade secret identity]].
