* Parodied on the ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' [[TheLonelyIsland Digital Short]] "Wish It Would Rain" where an arrogant singer tries to create a music video where his lover leaves him and wishes that rain would come to wash away his tears and redeem his spirit. When he gets pissed on by a guy on the roof of a building (played by Jason Sudeikis), he curses out The Weather Channel and regrets not getting a rain machine for the video.

* The scene in ''Film/{{Thor}}'' where Thor tries to recover Mjolnir from SHIELD is a great example: he ''thinks'' he's going to be redeemed by getting his hammer back and returning to his former glory, but the trope is subverted when he fails and he falls into a HeroicBSOD. However, his path to ultimate redemption [[BreakTheHaughty begins with this failure]], so in that sense the trope is actually invoked.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' episode "When It Rains", [[spoiler: Peridot]] stops being antagonistic towards Steven when he runs out into the rain. When she brings her hand out into the rain, choir-like music and VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}-like "nice day" beeps play in the background.

** At the end of the second season, President Bartlet stands out in the rain as he regains his drive and purpose, before facing the press and announcing that yes, he will run for reelection despite the legal and public battles over his concealment of his MS. This all happens over DireStraits' "Brothers In Arms." We are also told that this storm is from a large hurricane, which has hit Washington out of season in a manner unprecedented in a century of recorded storm-watching. In a slight twist on this trope, the President is very Catholic and had just cursed out God, in Latin, in the National Cathedral, for what he felt was divine DisproportionateRetribution to said concealment (his secretary and CoolBigSis was killed by a drunk driver), so the baptism and rebirth imagery is not an accident even in-universe.

%%%* ''PushingDaisies'' has one of these which - somewhat unusually for such a common trope - actually works.
