* Alluded to in ''Anime/FiveCentimetersPerSecond'', though it's the death of a relationship rather than a person. In the first part, heavy snowfall delays Takaki's trip to see Akari at Tochigi. Their relationship reaches its peak when they kiss that night in the snow, but it's all downhill from there; their LongDistanceRelationship subsequently unravels to the point that she has undergone AbsenceMakesTheHeartGoYonder, if not outright forgotten about him, by the time they see each other (maybe) a long time later.

* [[Myth/GreekMythology The Greeks]] gave us Persephone, daughter of Demeter (goddess of the harvest), kidnapped by her uncle Hades to be his bride in the Underworld. The rules stated that anyone who ate in the kingdom of death would be trapped there, so even though her mother successfully sued for her return, she had to spend some time there, having eaten some pomegranate seeds (four, five, seven, or eight; it varies), whether tricked by Hades or by her own will. So each year she returns, and each time she does, Nature dies. Thus winter. When she comes back, Nature thrives. Thus spring.
