* ''Film/ThePhantomOfTheOpera'': As Raoul and Christine romance on the Opera House Roof, it conveniently starts to snow. (The timescale of the movie was adjusted from the original musical as the scene takes place three months before New Year's Eve instead of six.)

* In ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'', during the Jinchuu/Memorial arc, Kenshin and Tomoe share [[TheirFirstTime a physically]] ''and'' [[TalkingInBed emotionally]] intimate scene with each other in their cabin as it is snowing. However, much like the case in ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'', it was later [[spoiler:[[SnowMeansDeath mixed with death]]]].

* In ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'', during ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'' uses the trope twice:
** During

However, much like the case in ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'', it was later [[spoiler:[[SnowMeansDeath mixed with death]]]].death]]]].
** In a rare '''villainous''' case, it's used ShipTease between the teenage orphan [[{{Tsundere}} Tsubaki]] and her protector, the gentle and friendly monk Anji Yukyuzan, whom she has a PrecociousCrush on. She's hurt her ankle and Anji carries her on her back towards the temple they live in, and as this happens she promises him that no matter what, she will always be with him, which can be easily seen as a sort-of LoveConfession... However, this is a case of ForegoneConclusion, because Anji is already known as '''[[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast The Destroyer]]'''. He used to be a sweet, caring guy determined to help the poor, but when the new government [[StartOfDarkness killed his adopted children]] when the government tried to outlaw Buddhism. [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge He did not]] [[ThenLetMeBeEvil take it]] [[FromNobodyToNightmare so well]]. For extra effect, the snow scene happens literally ''right before'' he finds all of his children (Tsubaki included) burned to death by government agents.



* In a rare '''villainous''' case, it's used well in ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'' as ShipTease between the teenage orphan [[{{Tsundere}} Tsubaki]] and her protector, the gentle and friendly monk Anji Yukyuzan, whom she has a PrecociousCrush on.

** The fourth chapter of ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Geneaology of the Holy War]]'', chapter 4 takes place in snowy Silesia and gives us three possible relationship-boosting talks between Azel and Tailto, Lewyn and Ferry, and Claude and Sylvia. In the second case, this will ''automatically'' trigger their RelationshipUpgrade.

* Subverted with a dramatic twist in the ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'' fanfic ''FanFic/TheVow''. When [[{{Seer}} the Soothsayer]] is asked to foretell what the wedding between Lord Shen and Lady Lianne would be like, she tells it to happen "beneath tears of snow". Everyone interprets the timing to be the nearing middle of winter when real snow falls in Gongmen City and so they start making arrangements for the marriage to take place then and outside. When the wedding is ongoing, the atmosphere is positive without doubt even though there isn't any snowfall. [[MomentKiller Then suddenly the entire moment (and the bliss of certain individuals) is crashed]] when an eyewitness of the [[spoiler:mass murder]] committed by Shen right before the wedding day rushes in to expose him, leading him to be exiled and leaving the hearts of his parents and fiancé broken. [[spoiler:The [[ProphecyTwist prophecy's actual meaning]] is revealed with a {{double subversion}} thirty years later when Shen and Lianne are finally married: it happens with Shen crying for the first time in years, his milky white tears looking like tears of snow with their cloudiness and milky white coloring.]]
