* In ChariotsOfFire, Eric is more Harmony, though he as a good streak of discipline as well. Harold is the extreme of discipline.

** 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.

* Music/AntonioVivaldi's opus 8 alludes to the duality in its title: ''Il Cimento dell'armonia e dell'inventione'' (the contest of Harmony and Invention). A collection of 12 violin concertos, of which the most famous are "The Four Seasons," the title refers to the pleasure Vivaldi experienced in alternating the ''ritornello'' (theme recurring like a refrain) with flights of fancy. Inverted, in that the "harmony" of the title (the concerted ''ritonello'') is Discipline, while the "invention" (the fanciful, programmatic passages) is Harmony, in the sense of this trope.

* FleshVersusSteel

to:

* FleshVersusSteelFleshVersusSteel -- Harmony's raw strength versus Discipline's keen edge, expressed in physical terms.



* FurAgainstFang

to:

* FurAgainstFangFurAgainstFang -- Werewolves represent the raw, untamed beast in Harmony with nature; vampires represent the unliving, unnatural beings that use Discipline to manipulate and corrupt their prey.

** The Harmony affinity is very much ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin - using extensive gene-splicing and biotechnology to integrate humanity into the alien ecosystem, with the intention to never allow the tragedy of [[GaiasLament the Great Mistake]] to ever happen again. Supremacy is strongly Discipline, as they modify their environment and even their own bodies with cybernetics and robotics to suit all their needs. Purity at first seems strongly Discipline as well as their entire philosophy can be summed as "no, universe, ''you'' change for ''us''", with technology focusing on surviving and eventually terraforming the hostile alien ecosystem. However, their refusal to modify their bodies and their cultural reverence for Old Earth have distinct harmonious flavour.

* 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.
--> The Shan Palace blended with the nature that surrounded it, a part of the luscious gardens and mountain springs, as if it had grown from the mountains that it was built in; the Tower of the Sacred Flame was a monument of might and majesty, set as an achievement of what its builders could do without nature.

This conflict can play out in any scale and genre. From [[StarWars Jedi versus Sith]] in their view of TheForce and TheDarkSide (Do you let it flow through you and enact its will upon the galaxy? Or chafe at the "chains" so imposed and bend it to your will?), to a doctor choosing whether to go on punishing themselves for every patient lost, insisting that they just need to work themselves harder to make themselves be able to save every patient, or admitting that no, they can not save everyone.

* The [[StarWars Jedi and the Sith]] actually both embody Harmony and Discipline, but in opposite areas. The Jedi strive to master their emotions and do the will of the Force while the Sith seek to bend the Force to their will while giving in to their emotions. The Jedi belive in internal Discipline and external Harmony, while the Sith believe in external Discipline and internal Harmony (or Passion, which may not be identical; either way, a lack of control).
