* In LloydAlexander's ''ChroniclesOfPrydain'', the sun and moon are emblems of two ancient royal houses. The emblem of the House of Don is the sun, on account of the fact that the Sons and Daughters of Don are descended from the Lady Don and her consort, Belin the Sun King. Meanwhile, the emblem of the House of Llyr is the crescent moon; this is on account of the fact that they are descended from Llyr Half-Speech the Sea King, and the tides of the sea are governed by the phases of the moon.

On the other end of the spectrum, [[{{Lunacy}} the moon]] also has connotations of light, but it's been associated with {{The Undead}} and other supernatural creatures. {{Lycanthrope}}s, the most famous example, are depicted as having their transformations trigger when the moon is full. Can also go in line with {{Light Is Not Good}}, although it can go with {{Dark Is Not Evil}} when dealing with characters like {{Friendly Neighborhood Vampires}}. The moon does give light in the darkness, and just because it's less constant and [[MelancholyMoon more mysterious]] doesn't make it bad.

** Carries into the next song, "The Court of the Crimson King," where the first lyrics are "The rusted chains of prison Moons / Are shattered by the Sun." This, paired with the colorful and fiery imagery, seem to imply that the titular Crimson King himself is the Sun.

The sun and moon have also been personified by having both of them be a specific sex. For example, the pairing could be a masculine and harsh sun paired with a feminine and soft moon. In historical religions, the sexes associated with the sun and moon vary greatly, and in some cases both a male and female deity may be ascribed to a single celestial body. According to [[Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} The Other Wiki]], it is somewhat more common to view the sun as male and the moon as female due to the prevalence of that portrayal in Greek and Roman religion. (It might also have something to do with [[AllPeriodsArePMS certain ''other'' 28-day cycles]].)

* In the tenth installment of the ''VideoGame/DarkParables'', the warring neighbor countries of Barsia and Olesia use solar and lunar motifs. Barsia worships the Sun Goddess and takes the sun as their emblem, while Olesia reveres her sister the Moon Goddess and takes the moon as theirs. The division between the countries dates back centuries to the goddesses having a disagreement over a fallen star.
