* There is also (again in Swedish) ''Vem tar hand om hösten?'' which reveals who takes care of the various seasons when it ''isn't" autumn, winter etc., in case you ever wondered. [[spoiler: The Hare watches over Autumn, Tomten (the Swedish Santa Claus) over Winter, the Lark over Spring, and the Shepherd herds Summer with his sheep.]]

* In the ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'' episode "Out with the Old... in with the Ed", Eddy fools everyone into thinking it's summer by heating the cul-de-sac with air conditioning, and painting all the orange leaves green. This works until [[RealityEnsues the fall weather starts kicking in]] and nature resumes its proper course.

Added DiffLines:

* Played with in ''Film/{{Thor}}'' and ''ThorTheDarkWorld''. At the very least, Asgardian tech ''evokes'' this effect: hammers that summon thunder and lightning, a teleport bridge that produces a definite "Aurora borealis" effect, grenades that explode into "black holes", and even arrows that seem to become stars in the night sky when fired (during a "Viking funeral"-style ritual).

* Between caring for "wild" animals, stomping clouds for rain, shaking the autumn leaves off of trees with organized stampedes, manually crafting snowflakes, and completely controlling the movements of the sun and moon, Equestria, the setting of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', has this trope played so straight that the Everfree Forest, a place where weather and wildlife are self-sufficient, is considered an EldritchLocation.

%%** Princesses Celestia and Luna are responsible for raising the sun and the moon, respectively. Prior to Celestia and Luna's rule, the unicorn civilization was collectively tasked with the raising of the sun and moon. After that was Discord who [[WorldGoneMad dicked around with nature and the seasons for the lulz]] and his reign was so long ago modern day ponies thought he was a metaphor. Therefore, as far as we know, ''someone'' has been managing nature.
** Pegasi control the weather and Earth ponies have the innate ability to make plants grow and care for "wild" animals. The pony population as a whole is responsible for changing the seasons -- for example, by cleaning up winter snow to make way for spring, and by shaking the autumn leaves out of trees.
%%** There's a forest (Everfree) outside of town where nature takes care of itself and this [[EldritchLocation creeps the ponies out]].
%%** The pegasus city of Cloudsdale is home to the "weather factory", where rainbows are brewed ([[BlazingInfernoHellfireSauce don't try to taste the liquid rainbows]]) and snowflakes are hoofcrafted.
%%** Pegasi also have to create huge tornadoes to raise water from ground reservoirs to Cloudsdale, in order to make storm clouds for the rainy season.
%%** Three ponies with a vacuum cleaner can remove the color of a rainbow and use it in a potion.

hoofcrafted. It draws the water it needs from reservoirs groundside, which is raised to the city by large numbers of pegasi flying in circles to create huge tornadoes to suck it up into the sky.
** Even the seasons and the day-night cycle are under management. Big seasonal events (like making the last leaves fall off of autumn trees or manually shoveling away winter snows while waking up hibernating animals and guiding back migratory birds) are treated as essentially big community projects, while Princesses Celestia and Luna
raise water from ground reservoirs to Cloudsdale, in order to make storm clouds for the rainy season.

** In ''Discworld/{{Hogfather}}'', a number of these beings show up as a result of the Hogfather's disappearance creating a lot of loss belief that "grounds" itself by creating various odd-job personifications, including the Verruca Gnome, who goes around distributing verrucas out of a bag. Jack Frost also shows up, literally painting frost on windows. Apparently, he's really fond of doing ferns until the Verruca Gnome convinces him to branch out, resulting in pictures like three puppies poking out of a boot appearing in the first one people's windows.

* ''FanFic/ThroughTheWellOfPirene'': Besides the ponies' managing of nature from the show, the goblins in the Everfree do weather work of their own, making rainbows out of crushed gemstones and manticore oil, clouds with water and huge fans and lightning with jars of static and electrically charged thunderstones.

* A lot of these show up in Creator/TerryPratchett's ''Discworld/{{Hogfather}}'' including Jack Frost and the Verruca Gnome. Note that in Discworld, human belief can create supernatural beings, so this raises a chicken-or-egg question.
** And the title character of ''Discworld/{{Wintersmith}}'', and his counterpart the Summer Lady.
