[[caption-width-right:180:Mental sunblock personified.]]

A cartoon and comic trope. A character having a [[{{Angst}} bad day]], or particularly depressed, will have his own small dark cloud following him, often [[GrayRainOfDepression raining]] and occasionally hitting him with [[ShockAndAwe lightning]].

The more depressed he is, the more it will be just rain; lightning, particularly a lot of it, often indicates an angry mood.

Compare to FisherKing for this trope on a much grander scale.



* A [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6vfSFXKlnO0 TV commercial for Zoloft antidepressant]] stars a cute little blob who wobbles around under a personal raincloud that represents depression. Once the narrator begins to [[SideEffectsInclude rattle off side effects]], the cloud lightens and breaks up.
* A UsefulNotes/McDonalds commercial has a little girl with a raincloud over her head, which Ronald [=McDonald=] takes and turns into the sun.

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* ''Anime/TenchiMuyoGXP'' has one of these following unlucky protagonist Seina as part of his EstablishingCharacterMoment.
* ''Manga/UruseiYatsura'' has such a raincloud. It's actually sentient, and having a bit of a tiff with its spouse--a sentient {{karakasa}}.
** Later, a character named Tsukuyo appears who is cursed with a personal rain cloud following her.
* Juvia of ''Manga/FairyTail'' has an entire rainstorm following her. [[spoiler: Until her HeelFaceTurn.]]

* Calamity James in ''ComicBook/TheBeano''. The cloud is sometimes portrayed as having a personality of its own, and acting to keep James unlucky (for instance by frying a tray of white heather with lightning).
* Gloomy Glad in ''Cheeky Weekly'' (1977-1980)
* The luckless title character of ''Crushed: The Doomed Kitty Adventures'' (from the creators of ''{{Webcomic/Supermegatopia}}'') is sometimes depicted as being followed by a small "cloud of doom".
* During the ''ComicBook/{{Ninja High School}}'': Hawaii arc. A character named Thor had one hanging around him for a good amount though not because he was depressed. But rather he was a demi-god (yet doesn't know it yet) and can't control his powers properly. Oddly this works to his advantage as he manages to get a job watering a garden.
* In the ''[[ComicBook/SpirouAndFantasio Spirou et Fantasio]]'' comic entitled "Spirou à New-York", the leader of the Cosa Nostra (Don Vito "Lucky" Cortizone) is constantly followed around by a stormcloud, because of his unnatural bad luck. Said cloud is shaped like a skull no less.
* In ''ComicBook/TheSandman'', Thor gets one to represent his hangover, which makes sense seeing as he's a storm-god.
* ComicBook/{{Storm}}'s weather-control powers subconsciously alter the climate near her according to her mood.
* In the ComicBook/AmalgamUniverse, the Daily Bugle(which was far more tabloid-like than in the Marvel Universe) tried to insinuate that an illicit relationship was happening between Spider-Boy (ComicBook/SpiderMan + ComicBook/{{Superboy}}(Connor Kent)) and Amazon (ComicBook/WonderWoman + ComicBook/{{Storm}}). A thunderstorm formed over the Bugle building for a straight month.

[[folder:Eastern European Animation]]
* In the Soviet series of cartoon shorts ''Cossacks'' (''Казаки''), the second episode has the titular characters go to various countries to play their national soccer teams. The last game is in England, where there is a rain cloud that only covers the stadium, playing up the stereotype that it always rains in London.

[[folder:Fan Fiction]]
* In ''Fanfic/WithStringsAttached'', John acquires one after he gains the Kansael. The cloud changes with his mood; the stormier it is, the angrier he is.
* In ''FanFic/EarthAndSky'', Applejack gets one when she's brooding after an argument with Soarin.
* The ''FanFic/TriptychContinuum'' plays this absolutely straight in [[Recap/TriptychContinuumAGoodTrotSpoiled A Good Trot, Spoiled]]: at the start of the story, Celestia and Luna are so mutually depressed as to have their emotional state manifest through their magic, creating storm clouds in the Solar throne room.

[[folder:Films -- Animated]]
* In a benevolent version, Olaf the Snowman from ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' is provided with a little storm cloud that constantly snows on him, so he can survive in the summer.
* In ''Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove'', villainess Yzma and her lackey Kronk get struck by lightning from one of these clouds and fall into a chasm. Their recovery is as quick as it is [[HandWave inexplicable]].
* In Disney's ''Disney/TheManyAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh'', [[TheEeyore Eeyore]] is shown with one of these when [[ExpositoryThemeTune the characters are introduced]] in the [[FramingDevice inside cover of the book]].
** In a story of ''My Friends Tigger & Pooh'', Eeyore actually contacts the Super Sleuths because he wants his dark cloud ''back''. He had actually had a happy moment and it had gone away.
* At the climax of ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut'', after escaping [[spoiler: the memory dump]] Joy tries to find Sadness so she can apologize and get the both of them back to Headquarters. She finds Sadness in Imagination Land, riding around on a rain cloud and feeling miserable and useless.
* One scene in ''Animation/FantasticPlanet'' has the protagonist being chased by a personal rain cloud. It was being controlled by his Draag owner, and even zapped him in the face with lightning.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* Italian comedy/satire movies ''Film/{{Fantozzi}}'' features the titular character, an office clerk so unlucky that he almost always has a raincloud following him when going on vacation! This has become known as "nuvoletta dell'impiegato" ("clerk's cloud" in Italian). Notably, the one time he is lost at sea and lacking water, the raincloud appears and rains... two meters away from the boat.
** Fantozzi's cloud is really affectionate to him: when Fantossi died, his Clerk Cloud took care of raining on his funeral service, providing suitable atmosphere.
** ''All'' clerks have a personal raincloud. Thus the annual soccer game between married and unmarried clerks goes on only until the clouds arrive and ''flood the field''.
* ''Film/HotShotsPartDeux''
* ''Film/TheTrumanShow'': When the storm comes in, the sprinklers over Truman accidentally turn on first and follow Truman around before the rest turn on.
* ''Film/MenInBlackII''
--> '''Agent K''': When you get sad it always seems to rain.
--> '''Laura''': Lots of people get sad when it rains!
--> '''Agent K''': It rains ''because'' you're sad.
* The title character in ''Film/DateWithAnAngel'' waxes wrathful and inflicts some on the antagonists.
* ''Film/HighSchoolHigh'': When Mr. Clark is fired after the students all fail the exams and is booed away, the rain in the scene turns out to be coming from a personal raincloud accompanying Mr. Clark.

* "The Devotee to Whom Allah Gave a Cloud for Service and the Devout King" from the ''Literature/ArabianNights''. An unusual example as the cloud is a reward, a permanent water supply to the devotee in return for his piety.
* Inevitable ''{{Literature/Discworld}}'' example: Played with in ''Discworld/InterestingTimes''. Rincewind (thanks to a quantum weather butterfly) gets a personal raincloud. Later on, this is upgraded to a personal snowstorm (right in the middle of an actual rain storm). Both cases sort of turn out to his advantage, though; the snow helps Cohen and the Horde find him, and the rain leads to him discovering the real Red Army.
* Justified in ''Literature/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'', where a character has rain always follow him, but in this case, it's explained that it's because he's a rain god and doesn't know it, so the rain wants to follow him.
** Eventually, he takes his records of the constant rain wherever he goes to some scientists who confirm it, but are baffled as to the cause. The man is able to retire on the income he receives [[BegoneBribe being paid]] by resorts and vacation spots to ''not'' visit them.
* Used uncomically twice in the ''{{Literature/Deverry}}'' series; once on the opposing and once on their own army.
* Discussed in the ''Literature/WarriorCats'' series:
-->'''Leafpool''' (to Jaypaw): You drift around the camp like a little dark cloud looking for someone to rain on.
* ''{{Literature/Nightside}}'s'' constantly depressed bartender Alex Morrisey is described as "being born under a cloud, which surprised the midwife."

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* In an episode of ''{{Series/Scrubs}}'' in which the four main characters were depressed, a raincloud appeared over their table in the cafeteria.
* {{Convers|ationalTroping}}ed in ''Series/JustShootMe'', "Nina's Birthday":
-->'''Maya:''' Finch, the copier's not working.\\
'''Dennis:''' Maybe the dark cloud over your head shorted it out.
* Used as a throw-away gag in ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'', where one of the titular character's aunts mentions she's been feeling under the weather in a grouchy tone of voice...with a rain-and-thunder cloud over her head.
* Happens to Justin in an episode of ''Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'' after he upsets mother nature. She thinks he got off lightly as she could have given him his own personal earthquake.
* Even on the nicest days, there's a literal dark cloud hovering over the Bundy house on ''Series/MarriedWithChildren''.
* In the ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode "Smith and Jones", Tish sees the hospital Martha works at has its own personal raincloud and references the trope. It turns out to be a side-effect of Judoon teleportation.
* In "The Sprites Save Grotto's Grove" from ''Series/JohnnyAndTheSprites'', one of the ways that the Sprites use their magic to try to get Yolanda to leave and not build a hotel in their home, Johnny's backyard, is that Ginger summons one of these to rain on her.
-->'''Johnny''': Uh, yeah. I should have warned you about the strange weather around here. Sudden sunshowers.

* The song "Sunshine Life For Me (Sail Away Raymond)" from Music/RingoStarr's "Ringo":
-->''It's a sunshine life for me,''\\
''If I could get away from this cloud over me,''\\
''Seems to just follow me around.''
* Music/PhilCollins' song "I Wish It Would Rain Down":
-->''Now I, oo... now I wish it would rain down, down on me.''

[[folder:Newspaper Comics]]
* ''{{ComicStrip/Dilbert}}'' used this once or twice in the form of the "cloud of doom".
* ''{{ComicStrip/Garfield}}'' once featured this weather report: "It's warm and sunny, except for a single house in the suburbs."'
** Inverted in an early strip when Garfield mocks Odie asking [[TemptingFate who could possibly love a grinning idiot like him.]] Then it starts raining everywhere ''except'' on Odie.
--->'''Garfield:''' ''[[{{God}} You]]'' [[RageAgainstTheHeavens stay out of this]]!
** In one strip, Jon reads that 'a cat sneezing is sign of rain'. Garfield sneezes, and a personal raincloud opens over Jon.
* Possible UrExample and shown above: Joe Btfsplk from the newspaper strip ''ComicStrip/LilAbner''.
* This often happened to Wellington in the British newspaper strip ''ComicStrip/ThePerishers'', at least in the 1960s. On one occasion he pretended to be depressed and then stood in his rhubarb patch so the cloud would water it (as well as him).
* One strip of ''ComicStrip/PearlsBeforeSwine'' featured Rat standing under his PersonalRaincloud; Pig enters, and Rat explains, "Ever have one of those days?" Next day's strip, and Rat is still under the raincloud. Pig looks at him, then stands under the cloud with him, saying, [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming "What are friends for?"]]
* Pigpen in ''{{ComicStrip/Peanuts}}'' has a personal ''dust'' cloud.
** If I remember rightly, unlucky Charlie Brown has rain fall just for him in one strip.
* In ''{{ComicStrip/Mutts}}'', Sourpuss complains one day about the clouds not having decided to rain or not. He gets one. Lasts for several days -- once he asks about the flowers and it shifts off, for one panel.
* Katie in ''Adam@Home'' [[http://www.gocomics.com/adamathome/2012/12/04 gets one in anger]] rather than depression.

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* The "homebrewed" [[http://www.giantitp.com/forums/printthread.php?t=122824&pp=40 Falling Anvil]] discipline for Dungeons and Dragons version 3.5 allows you to do a short-lived instance of this to your enemy to hit them with a lightning bolt. Several versions of this exist, ranging from the 2nd level maneuver "Unlucky Raincloud" and going up to the 7th level "Accursed Thunderhead".
** There is another spell called Gloomcloud that gives a target a cloud over their head that only they can see, which makes them depressed and unable to do much of anything for a few minutes.
* Exaggerated and weaponized in ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40K'': The Space Wolf character Njall Stormsson ("the Tempest that Walks") has a Personal ''Blizzard''- there's a random weather effect centered on him that only gets worse as time goes on, until every enemy in range is getting zapped by lightning every turn. And that's ''before'' he uses his actual weather powers.
* An evil version in ''TabletopGame/WarhammerFantasy'' with Kholek Suneater, first of the dragon-ogre shaggoths: Whatever it was dragon-ogres (a centaur-like monster not related to either species) did at the dawn of time to obtain immortality, the sun refuses to look at them, and thus Kholek goes to war under a thick cover of thunderclouds (hence the somewhat misleading name, as [[FalseReassurance he's only slightly bigger than a city wall]]). Oh, and lightning heals him.

* Villagers in the American GameCube version of ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'' will have these when sad. In all other versions and later games, they sport HitodamaLight, instead.
* ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing'' has a personal raincloud familiar. The KOL Wiki also says this:
--> "The concept of a "personal raincloud" that follows someone around probably dates from the "world's worst jinx" character Joe Btfspl in the Al Capp comic strip ''ComicStrip/LilAbner''. Personal dust clouds or rainclouds have appeared with numerous other characters since then, including Pig-Pen in the ''{{ComicStrip/Peanuts}}'' comic strip and the animated Schleprock in ''WesternAnimation/ThePebblesAndBammBammShow'' (also a terrible jinx). Rain and rainclouds follow the character Rob [=McKenna=] in ''So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish'' by Douglas Adams wherever he goes. A localized rain-and-thundercloud also floats above the rolling home of ''Series/TheAddamsFamily'' in their original Creator/HannaBarbera animated series."
* One of the power-ups in ''VideoGame/MarioKartWii''.
* This is one of the [[PoisonMushroom bad presents]] in ''VideoGame/ToeJamAndEarl''. Open one up and a little raincloud follows you for a while, occasionally zapping you with lightning bolts and draining your health.
* We then have ''VideoGame/BrutalLegend'' and the Drowning Doom Bride, whose personal raincloud can slow people down and hit people with lightning bolts should the Bride be harmed. The effects stack with multiple Brides out on the field.
* There's one of these in the original ''VideoGame/WarioLand''. Okay, it's avoidable, and seems to be more the cloud trying to strike Wario with lightning for some malicious reason, but otherwise fits the trope.
* ''Franchise/KingsQuest''
** Messing up the storm spell in ''VideoGame/KingsQuestIII'' results in Gwydion gaining this, and a GameOver.
** Magically generating one of these is actually key to defeating the FinalBoss of ''VideoGame/KingsQuestVAbsenceMakesTheHeartGoYonder''.
* ''VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG'' has a variant with Mallow, who's power over the weather [[EmpathicEnvironment causes it to rain when he cries.]]
* Not represented visually, but the Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Kyogre summons rain wherever it appears. This can cause some very significant changes in the game.
* The short adventure game ''[[http://www.bigbluecup.com/games.php?action=detail&id=1235 Ulitsa Dimitrova]]'' gives a personal snowfall before the player character dies.
* In the ''VideoGame/{{Worms}}'' games where it's present, worms targeted with the weapon "Marked for Death" will have one of these on them.
* One of the {{Emoticon}}s in ''VideoGame/RagnarokOnline'' generates one of those.
* Referenced during a conversation with Kaidan in ''VideoGame/{{Mass Effect|1}}''.
-->'''Shepard''': Talk to me, Kaidan. You've got a little black raincloud sitting over your head.
-->'''Kaidan''': I'll try to keep the deck dry, ma'am.
* One of the top-end powers in the Storm Summoning set in ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'' lets you create one of these at will, although it will stay where you put it instead of following you.
* ''VideoGame/ToejamAndEarl'' has this as a bad present. Opening the 'Raincloud' item hangs this overhead, and it periodically electrocutes the victim player until it expires. Diving into water, counter-intuitively, protects the player from the lightning strikes.
* When Miis are feeling depressed in ''VideoGame/TomodachiLife'', such raincloud hovers above them.

[[folder:Web Originals]]
* The writer of the blog [[http://neverseenlost.wordpress.com/2010/02/02/introduction/ The Final Season of LOST as Seen by Someone Who Has Never Seen LOST]] describes the smoke monster as one of these. Throughout his recaps, he refers to the smoke monster as "Sad Day Monster".

* Played [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment oddly]]- though [[Funny/DominicDeegan hilariously]]- in [[http://www.dominic-deegan.com/view.php?date=2010-07-01 this]] ''Webcomic/DominicDeegan'' strip.
* This is an actual spell in ''Webcomic/MSFHigh''. An unreleased supplement allows you to follow it with lightning zaps that do damage.
* In ''{{Webcomic/Sinfest}}'', [[http://www.sinfest.net/view.php?date=2007-09-08 they appear in thought bubbles]], but still have external effects.
** [[http://www.sinfest.net/view.php?date=2007-04-01 Or outside, after selling your soul.]]
** Of course, if you're one of the damned being tortured in the fires of Hell, a nice, cooling raincloud is a ''good'' thing [[http://www.sinfest.net/view.php?date=2011-05-22 (unless you're Baby Blue, anyway).]]
* [[VideoGame/KatamariDamacy June]] has a [[HappyRain happy version]] in ''Webcomic/{{Katamari}}''. She enjoys the rain, so it doesn't bother her.
* In ''Webcomic/ThreeJaguars'', [[http://threejaguarscomic.net/?comic=bad-contracts-page-1 Business Manager reading a bad contract]] -- Marketer's stars likewise fall to the table.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''Series/TheAddamsFamily'' have a permanent storm cloud over their house, at least in the cartoons.
* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/CourageTheCowardlyDog'' has Eustace affected by this due to a curse placed on him till he learned to show kindness. The more selfish he was, the worse it got.
* ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'' features this on a few occasions, especially when Morgana hits him with a curse.
* On ''WesternAnimation/DragonTales'', Ord gets one in "Big Funky Cloud" when he's really sad about having lost his favorite blanket down the "lost forever hole." It rains on him whenever he cries and won't go away unless he feels better. It's also said that this always happens to a dragon who's really sad about something, though it's never seen with a sad dragon in any other story on the show.
* ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales1987'': In "Nothing to Fear", Magica De Spell sends a magical rain cloud to harass Scrooge and his nephews. In the end, the spell backfires, and Magica ends up [[IncrediblyLamePun under the weather.]]
* Happens to ''WesternAnimation/ThePinkPanther'' in the 1978 cartoon "Sprinkle Me Pink". In the end, a visit to a therapist allows the panther to will the cloud away-just in time for an actual thunderstorm to come rolling in.
* Subverted somewhat in ''WesternAnimation/{{Pocoyo}}'', where it turns out that the cloud just wants to be friends.
* ''{{WesternAnimation/Rugrats}}'' used this once. When the kids were all drawing "home movies" about themselves, Chuckie depicted himself and his father like this. ([[TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior Keep in mind]], Chuckie is only ''two''.)
* In the ''WesternAnimation/SonicBoom'' episode, "[[Recap/SonicBoomS2E11TheEvilDrOrbot The Evil Dr. Orbot]], Tails' machine that Orbot steals from Tails has the ability to summon these, and Dr. Eggman ends up the victim of these, as do Sonic and Amy.
* On ''WesternAnimation/SushiPack'', Sir Darkly, the personification of sadness and gloom, usually shows up with a storm cloud that rains misery on others.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', Raven's personal rain cloud floods the kitchen!
** Starfire had one too for a short while.
* The WesternAnimation/{{Classic Disney Short|s}} ''Casey Bats Again'', (a sequel to ''Literature/CaseyAtTheBat'') Casey has a cloud raining on him after striking out, which then parts after receiving news that he's about to be a father. But when his child (whom Casey hoped to groom as his ball-playing heir) turns out to be a girl, the cloud returns. When a second pregnancy yields girl triplets, three clouds appear over his house.
* Frequently used on ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', as clouds of various sizes are routinely created, destroyed and activated by pegasi, who have inborn WeatherManipulation due to their ability to treat clouds [[SolidClouds as if they were solid objects]]. This allows for some creative spins on this trope:
** Inverted in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E3TheTicketMaster The Ticket Master]]" when the pegasus Rainbow Dash tries to get on Twilight Sparkle's good side by making a hole in a looming rain cloud so that it rains on everyone ''except'' her.
** Played straight in the season two premiere when [[spoiler: Twilight loses hope and becomes her own EvilCounterpart]]. Of course, it's also played with due to the chaos, making it a cotton candy cloud that's raining chocolate milk... which Discord then takes and eats.
** In "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E8TheMysteriousMareDoWell The Mysterious Mare Do Well]]", Rainbow Dash is seeing lying on her own personal raincloud when she's complaining about not being seen as a hero.
** Invoked by Rainbow Dash in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E23PonyvilleConfidential Ponyville Confidential]]", who pushes a cloud over the Cutie Mark Crusaders and unloads on them as revenge for exposing her, and a lot of other people's, personal secrets in their embarrassing gossip column.
** Apple Bloom gets a personal storm cloud in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E12CallOfTheCutie Call of the Cutie]]" when she's depressed over (seemingly) being the only pony in her class who doesn't have her Cutie Mark yet. Rainbow Dash is kind enough to remove it for her.
** In a flashback in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS6E15TheCartBeforeThePonies The Cart Before the Ponies]]", a rain cloud forms over Rarity when she gets second place in the "most creative cart" category to ''Derpy Hooves'', of all ponies.
** "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E22TestingTesting123 Testing Testing 1, 2, 3]]" uses this in a somewhat unusual way. After Rainbow becomes depressed over her poor chances of learning what she needs to learn to pass the Wonderbolt entrance test, she gather together a number of clouds and curls up to be by herself. As soon as she lays down, the formerly white cloud darkens into a sullen gray raincloud. Rather than the cloud raining on ''her'', a depressed Rainbow lies on top of the cloud while it rains.
* ''Would'' have happened to Kiina in the sequel of ''Toys/{{Bionicle}}: The Legend Reborn'', as a result of her less-than-perfect control over her ElementalPowers. Would have, if the movie hadn't been scrapped.
* In the Creator/TexAvery cartoon "Big Heel-Watha", the tribal leader is Chief Rain-In-The-Face, who has a tiny storm cloud over his face (his theme music, of course, is "Singin' In The Rain").
* In the Creator/TexAvery cartoon ''WesternAnimation/KingSizeCanary'', an alley cat ponders a situation, then has a 'brainstorm' that manifests itself in a little storm cloud that rains on the table he's at.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheMiniavengers'', [[FragileFlower Marion]]'s super power is to create these by crying.
* Hilariously parodied in the Hungarian animation series ''Hungarikum'' where national hero Kossuth is constantly having one of these above his head since his birth. There's an entire episode devoted to breaking the curse. Why is it a parody? [[AffectionateParody Because there's a Hungarian folk song with a passage about rain falling onto Kossuth's hat.]] After [[MadBomber Edward Teller]]'s unsuccessful attempt at ''[[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill changing the climate of his hat via nuclear detonation]]'' (not only it failed to dissipate the cloud, it caused acid rain), [[DeusExMachina the God of the Hungarians finally solves the case]] by invoking the next passage from the folk song that he'll receive blessings equal to the amount of rain falling onto his hat. And behold: from them on the raincloud ''followed his hat instead of him''. Yes, this series is known for the massive amount of CrazyAwesome and RefugeInAudacity when it comes to parodising Hungarian national symbols.
* Played differently in ''[[WesternAnimation/TotalDrama Total Drama Island]]''. In the WhatDoTheyFearEpisode, Geoff admits to being afraid of hail. So Chris has a remote-controlled hail cloud follow him around and pelt him.
--> '''Lindsay''': Look, that cloud is following him. Awww, it's like his own baby cloud. I want one, too! Here, cloudy-cloud!
* In addition to black cats following him, having his head through a broken mirror, and being under a ladder stuck to his shell, this happens to Filbert of ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'' when bad luck and misfortune infests his pathetic soul for all eternity.
* In the 2010 ''[[WesternAnimation/PoundPuppies2010 Pound Puppies]]'' series, a puppy who thinks he's bad luck has one of these. (It's later revealed to have been engineered by some con artist cats.)
* In ''WesternAnimation/CareBearsWelcomeToCareALot'', Grumpy Bear will sometimes use his belly badge to generate one of these when he's particularly upset.
* After feeling sorry for [[ThePollyanna Eugene]] for having such a crappy birthday party, [[WesternAnimation/HeyArnold Arnold]] tries to make it up for him by holding several parties, but all of them go wrong in some way. When he finally sets one up in the backyard of the boarding house, the whole place gets rained on by its own Personal Raincloud.
* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/CampLazlo'' has an odd inverted version. Lazlo is so happy-go-lucky and cheerful that when the camp is drenched with rain, he has his own personal ray of sunshine.
* Ringo has his own rain cloud in ''WesternAnimation/TheBeatles'' cartoon "Good Day Sunshine." A small rain cloud even fills his glass.
* In the first episode of ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'', Star accidentally puts a black hole in Marco's bedroom. Trying to cheer him up, she conjured up a miniature sun over his head- it immediately turns into a raincloud.
* WesternAnimation/{{Bonkers}} gets one in "Out of Sight, Out of Toon" when he remarks that he's [[VisualPun a little under the weather]].
* On ''WesternAnimation/{{Wishenpoof}}'', in "Bianca and Penelope's Clubhouse," Bianca tries to use her Wish Magic to create a rainbow, but at first only ends up creating a raincloud. It keeps following her sentient teddy bear, Bob, and hovering over him, no matter how much he tries to avoid it.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/MikeLuAndOg'' episode "Nobody's Nose", Mike refuses to be the "nose" for the island's First Day of Spring festival, and Queeks casts a curse that causes a raincloud to follow her around and zap her until she relents.

* A variant occurs in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=by8q5uHDhNU this]] performance of "Autumn Leaves" where leaves fall on Victor Borge's piano, no matter where he and the stage hands move it.
