* Inverted in [[VideoGame/ArTonelico the Ar tonelico series]]. The weather control devices (called the Musical Corridor/Wings of Hynemos depending on the game) are part of the devices that allow people to survive at the extreme altitude at which they've been forced to live.

** The Alabasta arc also introduced to us another weather control device known as Dance Powder. When burned, it creates rainclouds...by stealing the moisture away from ''other'' clouds. Obviously, this stuff is outlawed.

Obviously, this stuff is outlawed. Crocodile makes heavy use of it to further his plans, creating a drought in Alabasta and pinning it on its king, so the country will be torn by civil war and be ripe for Crocodile's taking.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Film/BackToTheFuturePartII'', Doc mentions a U.S. weather service in 2015, after predicting the exact time rain would stop. It's somewhat unclear whether they actually have the ability to control the weather, predict it with extreme accuracy, or if doc actually only knew through time travel.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'', it is revealed that the Dwemer built one (known as the Karstangz-Beharn) in their city of Bamz-Amschend. After their disappearance, the city of Mournhold was built over top of it. [[spoiler:[[PhysicalGod Almalexia]]]] will command you to use it in the ''Tribunal'' expansion to create ash storms in Mournhold as a show of her power. It will reset to normal following completion of the ''Tribunal'' main quest, but nothing is stopping you from going back to it and setting it to create whatever weather you want.
