* In TadWilliams' ''Literature/MemorySorrowAndThorn'', the lengthening of winter is a sign of the growing power of the BigBad Storm King and plays a key plot point in Binabik's character arc, as his people view it as a sign of his betrayal of his shamanistic duties until they are convinced that it's really the Storm King's doing.

* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'': One of the example plot hooks in the EpicLevelsHandbook is about a xixecal (essentially a demigod of ice who looks like a giant, humanoid glacier) who is preventing a particularly harsh winter from ending.

Homer explicitly states that Persephone returns in spring and is with hades in winter
* OlderThanFeudalism. The Greek/Roman myth about the seasons of the year includes this as Hades kidnapped his wife-to-be Persephone from the Olympus and that results in the advent of winter (later they make a deal and the normal seasoning begins). [[note]]Note that originally the kidnapping caused a period of eternal ''summer'': summer in the area around the Mediterranean is scorching and nasty, and winter comes as a welcome respite, rather than the temperate standard of winter being the lifeless season of cold and summer being a welcome respite of sun and clear skies. The idea that winter came when Persephone was with Hades came about when the myth moved north, and between explaining why having an eternal summer was bad and just switching it to winter, the latter was easier.[[/note]]

* In ''Animation/GuardianFairyMichel'', spring is late because no one told the winter fairy that winter was over.

* Likewise in ''RankinBass/JackFrost,'' Jack manages to trap the villain, Kublai Kraus, in his castle with a blizzard, and extends winter as long as possible so that he can't escape and attack the village where his beloved lives. He manages to extend it past Groundhog's Day by turning into a shadow to scare Punxsutawney Phil, but eventually his boss, Father Winter, has enough and ordains that winter will end at noon on May Day. Jack manages to defeat the villain before it happens.

* Residents of [[DungeonsAndDragons Vorostokov]], one of ''TabletopGame/{{Ravenloft}}'''s harsher inhabited domains, have been waiting for a ''proper'' Spring for a couple of decades now. At best, the rate of snowfall decreases temporarily, and a few above-freezing days each summer keep the accumulation from turning villages into glaciers, but actual ''thaws'' are unknown.
