* Very well done in ''Film/TheShawshankRedemption'', the TropeCodifier, after the main character [[spoiler: breaks out of jail by slowly digging a tunnel over twenty years.]] Also, notably, its usage of the trope was not gratuitous or overly symbolic. First, [[spoiler:the rain is not merely a background event but an important point in his escape plan, it's a way of thanking it]]. Second, the man [[spoiler: crawled through 500 yards of sewer pipe to escape]], so one can argue he's doing it (at least partially) for ''practical'' purposes.

* Subverted in ''ShokojoSera'', in an episode titled [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin "Redemption In The Middle Of The Storm"]] - Sara braves an autumn storm to get Lavinia's dress cleaned, only for [[spoiler:Lavinia to falsely accuse her of ruining it in the first place. The further ill-treatment that this invites leads Sara to fall seriously ill.]]

* In ''{{Breach}}'', as the main character uses his powers to transform a possessed and mutated boy back into his original self (sealing his own fate as he does), the boy wakes up and notices it's raining. * In ''TheDarkKnightReturns'', a fifty-five-year-old Bruce Wayne appears as Batman for the first time in ten years, just as a thunderstorm breaks the intense heat wave that had been gripping Gotham City. [[HesBack "The rain on my chest is a baptism]]--[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome I'm born again."]]

* ''SinCity'' does this at least once - Marv gets a great cleansing rain scene while he [[ContemplateOurNavels waxes philosophical]] about his killing spree and the final hit he's building up to do. Like the rest of the comic, done damn well, and plays out identically in TheMovie. * {{Storm}} graced the cover of ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'' like this in the issue where she and Forge broke up. He proposed to her in the previous issue and she said she'd think about it. In the issue with the rainy cover, [[PoorCommunicationKills he took her answer the wrong way]] and left both the X-Men and Storm to be with Mystique. Storm's response as he slammed the door? [[{{Tearjerker}} "I was going to say...yes..."]]

* In GabrielGarciaMarquez' book ''Literature/OneHundredYearsOfSolitude'', the sick town is healed by several years of rain. It still dies at the end, but at least have a brief time of peace before that. * Subverted in ''TheRunelords'', where Borenson stands for a time out in the rain after slaughtering the Dedicates in Castle Sylvarresta only to find that their blood has dried and stuck too much to be washed away so easily.

* Parodied on the ''[[SaturdayNightLive SNL]]'' [[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.

* ''{{ER}}'' used a rainstorm (and a flooded river) throughout the episode "Hell And High Water" which began the process of Doug Ross' redemption. The scene where he bursts out of the river (holding the rescued child in his arms, rain flooding down, illuminated by the light from a chopper) owes a lot aesthetically to the scene from Shawshank.

* In ''{{Berserk}}'', it begins to rain when Guts runs out [[FreakOut in a fit of emotion]] and the weight of the events during the Eclipse [[DespairEventHorizon finally begins to come down on him.]] After an encounter with the Skull Knight, Guts gives his famous ScrewDestiny speech, which pretty much signifies [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge THE turning point in Guts' life]].
