%% * ''Film/{{Oldboy 2003}}'': Subverted to disturbing effect at the ending. Why's it so disturbing? The ending is best left unmentioned anyway.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/LuckyStar'': It's snowing as Tim goes on his climactic RaceForYourLove, which ends with his passionate embrace with Mary at the train station.

* Combined with SnowMeansDeath in ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'', twice. Once when Caska tries to dissuade Guts from leaving his pre-Eclipse TrueCompanions, right before the showdown with Griffith (this also marked the moment when she had her LoveEpiphany). The other one post-Eclipse when Guts fights off snow-demons to protect Caska. They also share a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming in the snow when Guts and Casca depart from Godo's place when [[spoiler: Guts wraps his cape around her and says that he would never leave her behind again.]]

* There's a boatload of snow in the SchoolPlay romance the characters of ''DNAngel'' put on and the arc it was based in. Notable in that the romantic leads were played by Daisuke and Satoshi.

* The Season one finale of ''WesternAnimation/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.]]

* In ''SwingTime'' (1936), Lucky and Penny have a romantic interlude during a snowy daytrip to the country, leading to an AlmostKiss before things degenerate into a QuarrelingSong. Snow is also visible through the windows when they finally reunite at the end of the movie.

* ''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 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.
