* In ''Manga/FairyTail'', Juvia before her HeelFaceTurn had one on her dress because of her being BlessedWithSuck constantly raining around her. In some flashback, her younger self is seen making some more so the rain would go away and the local kids would play with her.

In some flashback, her younger self is seen making some more so the rain would go away and the local kids would play with her. It then pans out and you can see a pile of them behind her as she breaks into tears and starts begging them to work... It's a real TearJerker if you've ever been bullied or excluded.

A small, ghost-like doll that is traditionally used by Japanese people to prevent rain. The name literally means "shiny shiny Buddhist monk" and it was originally designed to somewhat look like one - it very vaguely resembles a bald man. Children traditionally hang these in a window frame when they wanted the next day to have good weather.

* In one episode in season one of ''VideoGame/{{Aikatsu}}'', Ichigo makes a large Teru Teru Bozu doll in preparation for the on-coming storm. Because of its size, other characters believe that it'll work and aren't surprised when it does.

* One of the TIPS in ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' show Rika hanging a TeruTeruBozu upside down in order to call in some rain. She's doing this because she's getting tired of the same sunshine [[spoiler:[[GroundhogDayLoop that's happening over and over again]]]] during the summer. In her mother's eyes, however, this comes off as one of Rika's CreepyChild moments after Rika tells her mother why she wants them hung upside down.

* In episde two of ''Anime/{{ReKan}}'', Amami Hibiki meets the ghost of a schoolgirl offering her umbrella to strangers in the rain. When someone takes it, the faceless ghost demands their face in return, terrifying everyone in the school. Naturally, Amami isn't scared of the ghost at all, but is instead mortified because she accidentally made a comment about eyes when the ghost doesn't have any. To ask forgiveness, she makes the faceless ghost an upside-down Teru Teru Bozu, so she can hopefully use the increase in rain it brings to become friends with the ghost.
