* Mostly played straight in ''Series/{{Frasier}}'', which is set in infamously rainy Seattle. The thing is, while Seattle experiences more days with some kind of precipitation than most American cities east of the Rocky Mountains, it averages less total precipitation than most of those same cities - as said precipitation mostly occurs as light drizzle. Downpours and thunderstorms in particular are quite rare. Nevertheless, when the series depicts rain for plot or ambiance purposes, it's shown to rain heavily, with thunder and lightning for good measure.

* ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' has a few locales where the rain is never gentle--gentle.



** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'', if it's the rainy season in the Giza Plains, the place will always be stormy, gloomy and flooded.



* Averted in ''VideoGame/{{STALKER}}''. Sometimes a drizzle is just a drizzle.



* There are many places in real life where it's liable to rain like this. (Anywhere in the Southeastern U.S. for instance.) Cue DramaticThunder and you'd better rush to the nearest porch or building. And, if it's in the tropics, stay there overnight. On the other hand, [[TheOtherRainforest The Pacific Northwest]] and UsefulNotes/{{Britain}} are known primarily as places where it rains, but it's usually just [[GrayRainOfDepression a steady drizzle]]. However, both have been noted to seeing several days straight of nothing but a heavy downpour.

TruthInTelevision, for some regions; in the desert, if it rains at all, you had best ''run'' for high ground, 'cause there is serious danger of flash flooding.

TruthInTelevision, TruthInTelevision for some regions; in the desert, western U.S. is especially known for violent cloudbursts. In deserts, if it rains at all, you had best ''run'' for high ground, 'cause there is serious danger of because the soils tend to have a hydrophobic crust which promotes flash flooding.

* At the end of ''WebAnimation/TheBackwaterGospel'', when the town [[spoiler:engages in a BattleInTheRain]], it turns into a vicious thunderstorm. Somewhat justified though, in that it does take place in a desert setting.

* In ''SinCity'', it generally only rains when a major plot point comes to the surface, like Marv realizing some crucial facts about Goldie and her reason for coming to him, or Dwight and the Girls of Old Town finding out that the abusive scumbag they just killed is not only a cop, but is a decorated hero.

* In ''HarryPotter'', Hogwarts has a pretty solid weather pattern. The narrative will show the transition from the last days of summer to autumn with rain lashing at the high windows, flooding the greenhouses, dark purple clouds, rain so thick you can't tell red from yellow, and one person complaining that he "hasn't been properly dry since August" due to rigorous Quidditch training in the aforementioned rain. Very rarely is a light drizzle ever noted.

* A 1989 ''TheCosbyShow'' Thanksgiving episode used this to set up a series of gags where Cliff has to go back and forth (in said downpour) to pick up items for the holiday dinner.
* In ''ThePacific'', the rain goes on and on as a continuous downpour, giving one main character a [[SoapOperaDisease severe illness]] and prompting the [[GrizzledVeteran Staff Sgt]]. to take off his clothes and shower in it while loudly reciting the Marine rules of cleanliness. It abruptly stops.
