* 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.]]

* The Season one finale of ''AmericanDragonJakeLong'' used this trope with a twist. The opening scene shows Jake and Rose together in Central Park on a snowy day, with Jake wondering if she should reveal his SecretIdentity to her in order to proceed with their relationship. (However, in a textbook case of DramaticIrony, it turns out Rose is [[LivingWithTheVillain actually the Huntsgirl,]] and has unknowingly tried to kill Jake multiple times. In the climactic scene of the episode, where Huntsgirl removes her glove to reveal Rose's dragon-shaped birthmark, takes place during a blizzard. It's almost SnowMeansDeath, except instead of the death of a person, we see the death of a relationship. [[spoiler:They get back together. Guess it was a DisneyDeath.]]

Added DiffLines:

* In a rare '''villainous''' case, it's used well in RurouniKenshin as part of a shiptease between the teenage orphan [[{{Tsundere}} Tsubaki]] and her protector, the gentle and friendly monk Anji. However, this is a case of ForegoneConclusion, because we already know Anji 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.

* ''JunjouRomantica'': It's snowing in the scene where Usagi rather abruptly realizes that, oh, he doesn't love Takahiro, but Misaki instead. And then he promptly makes out with him against a streetlight.

* An example happens in ''AyashiNoCeres''. When Suzumi sends Tooya out to do a dangerous mission, Aya runs after him in worry. He reassures her that everything will be fine by giving her a lovebite and then kissing her, at which point it starts snowing. But since this is Aya-slash-Ceres we're talking about, it's a subversion: The snow turns out to be flower petals.
* ''MidoriDays'' parodies this when Seiji and Ayase are stuck in a snow storm looking for safety. Ayase thinks it's romantic at first, but after her body starts to freeze, she starts to focus.
