* On the day that Creator/SatoruIwata's funeral was held, it just so happened that a typhoon had hit Japan, causing his burial to be backdropped by downpouring rain. Strangely enough, [[HeartWarmingMoments a rainbow was famously seen over Nintendo headquarters a few days earlier, [[EmpatheticWeather on the day of his death]].

* Former Confederate General Joseph E. Johnston caught a cold while the very rainy funeral of his late opponent, General William T. Sherman, possibly because he refused to put on his hat: "If I were in his place and he were standing here in mine, he would not put on his hat." The cold developed into pneumonia, causing Johnston's own death a month later.

* Parodied in the ''Radioactive Man'' comic book (and yes, that's the same Radioactive Man from ''TheSimpsons''). When RM heroically dies (for something like the fifteenth time) his friends gather to pay their last respects during what appears to be a gloomy, rain-drenched funeral. In the next panel, we pull back to see that it's actually a beautiful sunny day and everyone is standing under a large tarp to block the sun out, while the "rain" is really just the work of a guy holding a hose. Turns out RM's girlfriend Gloria hired a company to make the event as somber as possible (their slogan: "We take the 'fun' out of funerals.")

* In ''ChronoCrusade'', when Rosette takes a JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind in [[TokenMiniMoe Azmaria's]] head, she's shown at a graveyard in the rain under a battered umbrella--but it's possible this is just a symbolic ShowerOfAngst, and isn't meant to depict an actual funeral. In the manga, a flashback to the funeral of Rosette and Joshua's parents is shown--it's snowing.
* It the anime ''OnePiece'', during Zoro's flashback, it rains at Kuina's funeral.
* In the ''{{Shuffle}}'' anime it rains during the funeral for Kaede's mother.
