* Brazilian pop duo Music/SandyEJunior have an entire song, the aptly-named "As Quatro Estações", which uses the four seasons as its main lyrical motif. It's featured on the album of the same name, and the accompanying tour album featured a set of [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-mDeIgW1N6wA/UFoVV5B_tmI/AAAAAAAARzQ/xfOkTuGP1D8/s1600/Sandy+&+Junior+-+As+Quatro+Esta%C3%A7%C3%B5es+Ao+Vivo+%5BTodas+as+Esta%C3%A7%C3%B5es%5D+(Capa+Oficial+do+FanMade)+Capa+por+Cover+Brasil+%5Bwww.coverbrasil-leko017.blogspot.com%5D.JPG four interchangeable covers]], each corresponding to one of the four seasons. Longtime fans of the duo take pleasure in changing the covers around as the seasons change, and [[https://gshow.globo.com/programas/caldeirao-do-huck/noticia/sandy-and-junior-entram-em-brincadeira-de-fas-e-trocam-capa-do-album-as-quatro-estacoes.ghtml/ even they have gotten in the act themselves]].


* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' was called "The Four Seasons of Death", and consisted of four vignettes, each set in one of the four seasons where Jack faces a threat related to the season's characteristics. In fall, a MadScientist collects special leaves to concoct a poison to put into the water of a nearby well. In winter, a [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy mountain-dwelling warrior race]] forges a powerful sword and gives it to their greatest champion to guard their territory. In summer, Jack is accosted in the desert by spirits of the wind-whipped sands. In spring, a nature sprite attempts to seduce Jack into staying with her forever.

* The first episode of ''Franchise/{{Tsukipro}} The Animation'' has the groups leaders called into a meeting where they are told that at the end of the year, they will be performing in the label's major concert, and that it will be held at the Budokan, an important venue. The story takes place in real time, as it aired in October-December 2017, and over the course of those 13 weeks, it shows the weather changing from fall to winter, but that first episode takes place in spring, because after that meeting, [=SolidS=]' leader Shiki takes his group to see the Budokan and tell them the news - and to see the CherryBlossoms. He then writes a song about that night, called "Cherry Blossoms in full bloom". The franchise started with [[Franchise/{{Tsukiuta}} a series of month]] MoeAnthropomorphism idols, so of course the seasons would feature heavily in their stories.

Added DiffLines:

* Ditto its SpiritualSuccessor, ''VideoGame/StardewValley'', which cycles between the four seasons every 28 days and determines the same things (namely crops, foraging, events...).

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/{{Madadayo}}'': It's summer when the Uchidas are forced to move into the tiny gardener's shack after their house burns down. We then see a shot of the Uchidas in their shack as leaves are falling. Then we see a shot of them in the shack, with snow everywhere. Then we see a shot of them in the shack, with the snow gone and the trees blooming. After this TimePassesMontage, Uchida's old students decide to build him a house.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/TheSims3: Seasons'' adds to the game, well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin seasons]]. While the game does allow you to choose how long each season is and even disable some entirely so you don't get subzero temperatures in what is supposed to be a tropical location, you can't change the temperature ranges each season is: winter, for example, [[DreamingOfAWhiteChristmas will always snow]].

Added DiffLines:

* Being a book about summer, ''Literature/DandelionWine'' is loaded with references to picking berries, porch swings, freshly mowed lawns, 4th of July firecrackers, and other things traditionally associated with summer.


* ''MouseHunt'' has a Seasonal Garden where each season lasts about 50 hours before switching to a new one. Winter is snowy/icy; Spring is rainy; Summer is hot and green; Fall is dry and a bit spooky. Each has its own set of mice.

* ''VideoGame/MarioKart8'' and ''VideoGame/MarioKart8 Deluxe'': The Animal Crossing track has four seasonal variations.


* ''Fanfic/TheFourSeasons'' ([[[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9994560/1/The-Four-Seasons Here]].) a Crossover fic involving ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'', ''WesternAnimation/{{Brave}}'' and ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', has four princesses who represent the seasons; Elsa (Winter), Anna (Spring), Rapunzel (Summer) and Merida (Autumn).

** The incident is about seasons going haywire, and the first four locations you visit each have different seasons. First stage is in the summer skies, second stage is in Youkai Mountain in autumn, third stage is Hakurei Shrine in spring, and fourth stage is the Forest of Magic in winter. Fifth and sixth stages are in the [[VeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon mastermind's lair]].
* The FinalBoss have an attack for each of the season, and for her final attack, she steals ''your'' seasonal powers and use it against you. This also plays into her design, as she has four differently colored energy flames around her: Pink (spring), green (summer), orange (autumn), and blue (winter).

Added DiffLines:

* The sixteenth ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' game, ''Hidden Star in Four Seasons'' is, unsurprisingly, heavily based on seasons.
** First of all, each of the four playable characters represent a season. Reimu is spring, Cirno is summer, Aya is autumn, and Marisa is winter. They can also choose a subweapon, each of which is also based on a season.

Added DiffLines:

* Adaptations of ''Literature/TheSnowQueen'' often do this. Notably the Hallmark version; the various women Gerda meets throughout the story become the [[RelatedInTheAdaptation Snow Queen's sisters]] and each represent a new season. The witch who makes Gerda think she's her daughter represents Spring (notably in the book she was called the ''Summer'' Witch). The princess now represents Summer and the robbers' leader Autumn - the Snow Queen naturally taking Winter.
* ''Film/ThirteenGoingOnThirty'' uses a montage of Matt taking photographs for the redesign of ''Poise'' magazine. Each photoshoot represents a different season.
* ''Film/FiveHundredDaysOfSummer'' naturally gives the relationship a summer theme. The bereavement card project Tom works on after [[spoiler: their break-up]] is called The Winter Collection. And at the end [[spoiler: he takes interest in a girl called Autumn]].


In most media, either ItsAlwaysSpring whenever it isn't [[TheseTropesWereFrozenToday Arctic Winter]], or else there will be four seasons -- regardless of the climate the work is set in.
