* The incident in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers'' where Nanoha was unprepared for a sudden ambush. There was so much blood on her white Barrier Jacket and the snow-covered terrain, while Vita tried to keep her awake in the gently falling snow. Downplayed, since she didn't actually die (though she was almost crippled for life).

* The ''Manga/DeathNote'' anime has this one. It starts snowing just as Naomi lets down her guard enough to reveal her real name to Light, who sentences her to suicide. The snow continues as she walks to her fate.
** Also doubles as a massive amount of luck on Light's part, as the snow makes Kira Investigation member Aizawa get out his umbrella, obscuring his vision. The guy literally walks right past Light and Naomi without noticing either of them, because if he did see the two of them, Light's little reign would've ended then and there.

* At the end of the Galaxian Wars arc of ''Manga/SaintSeiya'', it starts to snow in the mountains where Phoenix Ikki has just been defeated by the other Bronze Saints. While Seiya and the others hold off Docrates' forces, preventing them from stealing the Sagittarius Gold Cloth, a dying Ikki regards the snow as a symbol of his purification... and then gets up and [[RedemptionEqualsDeath brings down the mountain on himself and Docrates]] to save the Saints' lives, burying everything and everyone in rock and snow. Then again, he IS the ''[[BackFromTheDead Phoenix]]'' Saint.

* The [[TearJerker tear-jerking]] scene (which scarred many Latin American children in TheNineties) of ''Nobody's Boy Remi'' (''Anime/IeNakiKo'', based on French novel "''Literature/SansFamille''," by Hector Malot), when the performing monkey Jolie-Coeur dies of pneumonia after forcing itself to perform one last time on the snowy streets.
** It soon gets worse, since the already terminally ill [[PapaWolf Vitalis]] also dies in the snow few later, in an HeroicSacrifice to save Remi and Cappi (the only survivor out of the animals) from perishing with him. Remi and Cappi ultimately survive since a local family finds Vitalis's lifeless body just in time before the offered protection isn't enough for them.

* In Manga/{{Claudine}}, the main character kills himself in a snowy night. It also snows when his UnluckyChildhoodFriend Rosemarie visits his grave.
* As Manga/DetectiveConan is a series where people fall dead in almost every episode, there are ''many'' murder cases that happen in the snow, and where footprints and other signals happen to be totally ''vital'' as clues to reveal who killed the victim of the week.

* In ''Manga/OnePiece'', it was snowing when Donquixote Rocinante, the second "Corazon" of the Donquixote Family, was shot by his older brother Donquixote Doflamingo. As he lay dying, he clung to life as long as possible to ensure the "spell" he put on Law to keep him unheard stayed so Law could escape. He finally died when the falling snow completely covered up his body, while Law's cries could finally be heard, only to be drowned out by the sounds of the battle between the Donquixote Family and the Marines.

* ''Film/NorthFace'' is about an attempt to [[ScalingTheSummit climb the north face of the Eiger]], a mountain famous for incredibly unpredictable and dangerous weather patterns. Things really start going bad when the snowstorm hits - an avalanche and hypothermia are, between them, responsible for killing most of the team.

** The same symbolism is made brutally real shortly after, when Yuuichi finally remembers what happened to Ayu years ago: she fell off a tree and was left comatose: unable to take any more, Yuuichi runs out into a snowstorm calling for Ayu; he runs past the place where they used to play without recognizing it because it's covered in snow. With the snow now falling furiously all around him (just as the deaths seem to be), he lays down and waits to die. The upbeat [[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x3olm7_kanon-ed-2_shortfilms ending theme]] about someone trying to find their way home seems to contradict the trope, showing Ayu happily running through the snow - until you find out where she's been all along.
