* The traditional saying "red skies at night, sailor's delight; red skies in morning, sailor take warning" (Alternatively, "shepherds delight", and with similar sayings in other languages.) According to TheOtherWiki, (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weather_lore#Red_sky_at_night ), it's because weather systems usually move from west to east, so red clouds at sunrise would mean the clouds and associated weather are headed towards you, while red clouds at sunset means they've already past. This phenomenon is even mentioned in Literature/TheBible, making it OlderThanFeudalism.

* The rolling distant red clouds in the point and click game ''VideoGame/{{Exmortis}} 2'' which inspired this trope (found [[http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/303832 here]]). The player is racing against time to solve the puzzle and get out before the clouds get to him, these clouds actually being the Exmortis themselves and therefore being very dangerous. Also, while the red clouds indicate the Exmortis are approaching, a red ''sky'' is present throughout the game as a sign of the Exmortis' domination of Earth.
* In the original ''VideoGame/StarFox/Starwing'', the first level Corneria is different on each difficulty setting/route. On the third and hardest one, the normally blue sky background is replaced with an ominous red sky, presumably from the sunset (or sunrise, as the 'normal' boss has a "cameo" as a set of parts being carried around), and the level has seriously jacked up difficulty to boot.

Clouds are symbolic. Everyone knows that. White, fluffy ones mean happiness and light. Big looming grey ones mean doom, disaster and, more prosaically, bad weather. They're no less ominous in fiction, as evidenced by the tropes AStormIsComing and the ClicheStorm. But what if the sky is red?

Often the clouds being talked about here are themselves more, well... direct than their symbolic cousins. They're not just a sign or symptom of impending [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt doom and disaster]], they ''are'' the impending doom and disaster. Maybe they're really a mass of enemies so large that it just ''looks'' like a cloud, or maybe they're some ghostly beast of a supernatural nature. Maybe they burn. Or maybe they just hang there looking ominous and threatening to unleash something awful which never quite happens because the player/watcher either sees the story through to a HappyEnding or [[NightmareFuel turns off the television]]. Or maybe it's nothing more than a visual representation of a story being dark and edgy. Whatever they are, you'd better believe it won't be good.

There is some TruthInTelevision to this, namely in the latter half of the "Red skies at night, sailor's delight. Red skies at morning, sailor take warning" adage. This is due to two things: 1. storms usually move from west to east, and 2. the sun sets in the west and rises in the east. In other words, approaching clouds will be illuminated in red in the morning, usually a sign of rainy weather to come that day. Clouds going away will be illuminated red in the evening, a sign of dry weather.
