* The prologue of ''VisualNovel/KatawaShoujo'' initially appears to be SnowMeansLove. The main character, Hisao, meets his {{High School Sweetheart|s}} on a snowy day for a confession of love. Unknown to anyone, [[HeartTrauma he has cardiac arrythmia and the excitement brings on a heart attack]]. He barely survives, but his old life is over.

* Throughout much of history this trope was subverted in that when it snowed the armies couldn't march so countries at war would call an armistace in winter.

* The Graveyard of the Giants from ''VideoGame/LaMulana''. Whereas its frontside counterpart, the Mausoleum of Giants, gives a romanticized take on the Giant's doomed ply to help Mother to return to the skies, the Graveyard of the Giants shows the ugly truth of what truly happened: after Giants failed their mission, Mother created a new generation of children who quickly chased the giants into the frozen caverns where, overcome by sorrow, they all perished.

** 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. 'cause, you know, if he did see the two of them, Light's little reign would've ended then and there.

* During Aggie's NearDeathExperience dream in ''PennyAndAggie'', snow falls. This is significant in that we never otherwise see snow in the comic.

* The snow and fog used in the ''SilentHill'' games (and the ice in ''VideoGame/SilentHillShatteredMemories'') might be a use of this trope.

* 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).
