** During the last hit of the ''Eternal Session'' CombinationAttack LimitBreak, Sora and Riku charge their Keyblades with Light and Darkness, respectively, and crash them into each other for a superpowerful attack combining the two elements. Some of Riku's sleights in Re:Chain of Memories work the same way, just with Mickey channeling the light power instead of Sora.

** Roxas' element is Light, but as a Nobody he's technically a being of nothingness. Its his two Keyblades that are a representation of the trope, the light-aligned Oathkeeper and dark-aligned Oblivion. Sora's Final Form also somewhat qualifies -- it symbolizes him manifesting Roxas' power, and his mostly black outfit takes on elements of Roxas' silver and white clothes, resulting in an outfit covered in white and black swirls. Artwork for Final Form also shows it with the Oathkeeper and Oblivion like Roxas.

Sometimes overlaps with EnergyDOnation or AllYourPowersCombined. Naturally, good buddies with DarkIsNotEvil, or, in the case that the ''villain'' uses this, with LightIsNotGood. The result is frequently NonElemental, ignoring elemental resistances. Or, as demonstrated in a few cases, the effect may be able to completely destroy something and recreate it (usually as a child). Sometimes, an EnemyMine with a villain may result in them combining their powers to do this. Contrast MutuallyExclusiveMagic.

* ''Franchise/StarCraft''
** The [[NeglectfulPrecursors Xel'naga]] temple in ''[=StarCraft:=] [[ExpansionPack Brood War]]'' requires both the Uraj crystal, powered by High Templar energies, and the Khalis crystal, infused with Dark Templar power, in order to activate and blow everything within a wide radius straight to Hell on the armageddon express.

** The Twilight Archon in ''[=StarCraft=] 2'' was planned to be this, a combination of a Dark Templar with a High (Light) Templar. Then the unit was replaced by the normal Archon, the only difference is that now it forms as a combination of any two Templar units regardless of their alignment. So it ''can'' be a yin-yang bomb, but doesn't have to be. The concept of the Twilight Archon being this trope was later adapted to the lore behind the Void Ray, which uses both forms of energy to power its WaveMotionGun.

But ''our'' guy, the Yin-Yang Bomb user, doesn't care about all those things. [[TheRedMage He uses both]]. Not just that, but often, he will [[AllYourPowersCombined combine them into something higher]] and invariably [[InfinityPlusOneSword ridiculously more powerful]]. Dark and light are not evil and good. They're not even diametrically opposed. To resolve the storyline or beat the boss, the hero must grab the reins of both and wield them in a [[FusionDance harmony of fusion]].

YinYangClash. As described in said page, yin and yang are actually 2 halves of the same thing that, when they "clash", become this instead, i.e a state where one harmonizes the yin and yang, called "taijitu" or "taikyoku".

* In ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'', you can explore the blighted, dark lands of TheCorruption (or the Eldritch-style flesh covered lands of [[EldritchAbomination the Crimson]]) and the joyful, light-aligned Hallow and find respectively Dark and Light Souls, which are used to make or upgrade dark or light-themed equipment. Fuse them with two particular (and rather rare) items and you obtain the Dao of Pow, an EpicFlail which is essentially a huge spiked Yin-Yang on a chain capable of massive damage and confusing any enemy it touches.
** As of Terraria 1.2, Combining the True Night's Edge and the True Excalibur at a Demon Altar will cause the power of TheCorruption and the [[LightIsNotGood The Hallow]] to cancel out and produce the Terra Blade.

* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'', you run across quite a few Darkspawn Emissaries and Blood Mages with skill in healing in addition to their [[BlackMagic darker powers]], which makes them much more obnoxious to fight since they've got the Creation-school healing to let them keep throwing out the Entropy-school hexes for longer.

This is partly due to GameplayAndStorySegregation; in theory they aren't using the player schools at all, but Blight magic with similar effects.

** You can use the Player Character as one in ''Knights of the Old Republic'', though it is rather difficult to throw around light-side buffs and neutral or dark-side attack powers unless you are a Consular with maxed Wisdom and so many force points it isn't even funny. In an aversion of this trope, though, trying to rely on both makes you weaker than focusing on either, because of Side penalties, as well as powerful Side-specific items. Without them, it would be played straight.
