** Justified, because he's unknowingly living in a perfectly weather controlled dome, and the people in charge must like this trope.

* ''TheGreatRace'': Max warns Professor Fate that there's going to be a storm because of the "red sky", thunder follows, then the rain comes pouring down.
* In ''TheFriscoKid'', after Rabbi Avram tells a skeptical Native American chief that the Abrahamic God can do anything, "but he does not. Make. Rain.", there's a thunderclap and a downpour.
* In ''[[Film/TheLordOfTheRings The Two Towers]]'', at Helm's Deep, just before the battle is engaged, the two armies face each other... and you hear thunder, there are a couple of raindrops on armor, then the downpour begins. Théoden is very not happy about it; some of the movie's extra material implies that the storm was raised by Saruman for the specific purpose of demoralizing the Rohirrim.

to:

* In ''Film/ThreeTenToYuma1957'', just as Wade and Evans are about to go on the climactic walk to the train with Evans's gang lying in wait, cracks of lightning and rolling thunder are heard. Eventually, the downpour comes—the rain that Evans the cattle rancher has been desperately waiting for, that he needs to save his herd, coming after three years of drought.

* Used for dramatic effect in ''{{Enchanted}}'', when Giselle comes to the Real World for the first time. After being completely lost and having her tiara stolen by a homeless guy, she stands helplessly in the middle of the street, hears thunder, and gets poured on from above.

* Averted in the first ''Film/BackToTheFuture'', when the storm just completely ''stops'' right after the lightning hits the clocktower. However, it's played straight in the sequels--with the exact same storm.
** Not exactly averted, but weird nonetheless. At the end of the second movie, the lightning and wind is going nuts, but once the [=DeLorean=] is struck and disappears, the lightning and wind stops, and then it starts to pour. That's one crazy storm.

* ''YoungFrankenstein'' features a classic comedic example during the grave-digging scene, after Igor makes a [[TemptingFate most unfortunate comment]] about the lack of rain.

to:

** Averted earlier in the movie when thunder strikes whenever a certain characters name is mentioned, but there is never any rain.



* The Thunderstorm spell in ''{{Diablo}} II'' plays a satisfying thunder sound the ''first'' time it drops a lightning bolt on an enemy, then only sporadically.
