* ''WesternAnimation/TangledTheSeries'': As of "The Quest for Varian", [[spoiler:the black rocks is implied to have this association with the magic golden flower seen in the film, both coming from drops of sunlight and moonlight respectively.]]

** This also applies to Kaguya Houraisan and Fujiwara no Mokou, though more thematically than anything else. Kaguya is a fair {{Lunarian|s}} [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses princess]] who was exiled after she drank the [[ElixirOfLife Hourai Elixir]] to obtain CompleteImmortality, and Mokou is the [[TomboyAndGirlyGirl tomboyish]] daughter of one of the noblemen that Kaguya humiliated in ''The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter'' who drank the Hourai Elixir in order to even the playingfield with her sworn nemesis, after which she took up [[PlayingWithFire fire magic]] with motifs based upon ThePhoenix. Now, the two of them are locked in an unending CycleOfRevenge, likened to the cycle of the Sun and the Moon that fall and rise as the days come and go.

** ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'':
*** The games use this for their opposite ThemeNaming and the in-game clocks, which are set twelve hours apart -- ''Sun'' during the day, ''Moon'' during the night. Series also tradition associates the male protagonist with the first version (''Sun'') and the female protagonist with the second (''Moon''), which is further enhanced by this trope.

** ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'':
''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' is obviously built around this trope:
*** The games use this for their opposite ThemeNaming and the in-game clocks, which are set twelve hours apart -- ''Sun'' during the day, ''Moon'' during the night. Series also tradition also associates the male protagonist with the first version (''Sun'') and the female protagonist with the second (''Moon''), (''Moon'')[[note]]their promotional names, Elio and Selene respectively, draw from Helios and Selene of Greek myth[[/note]], which is further enhanced by this trope.

The contrast between the two is a common motif. Compare RedOniBlueOni and ElementalPowers.

ElementalPowers. Given that the sun is a fiery ball of energy and the moon is responsible for the tides, this trope can also lend itself to FireWaterJuxtaposition.

** The same theme applies for the games' mascot Legendaries, ''Sol''galeo (a white-and-gold lion) and ''Luna''la (a black-and-gold bat-thing), who represent the sun and moon respectively. While technically genderless, they are considered the male and female counterparts to each other ([[BizarreSexualDimorphism somehow]]).
** Rockruff evolves into two different forms of its evolution Lycanroc depending on the game it's in -- the loyal and solitary Midday form in the daytime of ''Sun'', and the brutal and ferocious Midnight form during the nighttime of ''Moon''.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''TabletopGame/ChangelingTheLost'', the oldest group of Changeling Courts contains the Sun Court (a.k.a. the Found Path, the Court of Shame, who promote righteousness and lawfulness but fall a bit short of true justice) and the Moon Court (a.k.a. the Wayward Road, the Court of Disgust, who revel in disinhibition). They have a distinctly more hostile relationship with each other than the Courts of the Four Seasons, opposing each other's works with every dawn and dusk.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''FanFic/TheApprenticeTheStudentAndTheCharlatan'', since their mentors are the Solar and Lunar Princesses themselves, Nova Shine and Twilight Sparkle have this dynamic. It even extends to their personalities, [[RedOniBlueOni where Nova is colder and tries to stick to logic rather than let emotion in, where Twilight is much warmer and more readily embraces her emotions]].

* In ''Theatre/TheMikado'', Yum-Yum sings a song called "The Sun whose rays are all ablaze," about the contrast between the sun and the moon (and how Yum-Yum herself resembles both).

* Nine times out of ten, if a ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' installment has Anime/{{Daitarn 3}}, the robot that uses ThePowerOfTheSun, then its moon-based counterpart, Anime/{{Zambot 3}} is more than likely to be right beside it. Especially telling is when their ultimate combination attack, the Combination Crash, starts out with them using their finishers, respectively the Sun Attack and Moon Attack.
