* In ''FanFic/TheVow'', the Shēnghuó Province's Shan Palace and Gongmen City's Tower of the Sacred Flame are both described to be breathtaking structures in opposite ways, the former being the Harmony to the latter's Discipline.

Opposing Harmony is Discipline, the belief that mankind can and should master themselves and their environment for the betterment of all. Be it through mastery of the self through rigorous mental and/or physical training, study, exploration or with laws and civilization, this rigorous pursuit usually advocates science, progress, capitalism, [[RitualMagic Magic in its intellectual aspect]], religion in its intellectual and organized aspects, innovation, urbanization and [[CuriosityIsACrapshoot curiosity.]] Discipline believes that Harmony is too focused on preserving and accepting, and is in fact defeatist by not trying to improve things, this is why Discipline tends to be active. On the flip side, Discipline ''can'' end up tampering with things best left unmolested, can give its practitioners [[AGodAmI a God complex]], and can lose sight of the now in favor of tomorrow.

* In WatershipDown Cowslips warren is a [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans Utopia]] of the extreme of harmony with no Chief Rabbit, no need to forage, and no struggle to survive-- and an [[TownWithADarkSecret unavoidable dark secret]]. Efrafa is a Utopia of discipline where rabbits follow TheSpartanWay. Neither are regarded as pleasant places. Though interestingly the Efrafan way at least gets [[WorthyOpponent an ambiguous kind of respect]].

* In the ''Literature/WheelOfTime'', the two halves of the One Power, saidar and saidin, are wielded through harmony and discipline, respectively. Saidar is described as a powerful but gentle river which one must surrender to in order to master it, whereas saidin is described as an all-consuming, violent maelstrom of fire which must be dominated and controlled. Either one can produce amazing results, but the greatest magical feats of all require both forces acting together.

* In the ''{{Franchise/Ultima}}'' series, two of the six Ophidian Virtues are known as Ethicality (adhere to the rules of conduct) and Tolerance (accept that the world is what it is and that you're part of it). They are considered opposing Virtues by the forces of Law and Chaos, but in actuality it is necessary to balance both against each other, resulting in the Virtue of Harmony (be at peace with yorself and the world).

** Likewise, FriedrichNietzsche espoused two different "muses" or sources of inspiration for art, attributing them to the Greek gods Apollo (representing visual art and inspiring through dreams) and Dionysus (representing music and inspiring through intoxication). According to Nietzsche, the Apollonian (Discipline) was subordinate to the Dionysian (Harmony) insofar as Dionysian inspiration - hearing the mother's heartbeat ''in utero'' - was more primal and developed in the consciousness earlier than Apollonian, once the eyes were opened. However, the Apollonian also served to distinguish a more "enlightened" Dionysian art from aimless hedonism for its own sake.
