* ''Film/StarWarsTheForceUnleashed'': Kylo Ren is specifically mentioned as being an embodiment of the light and dark sides of the Force. While he clearly would deny this heavily, it's shown in his fighting style; Ren may be a dark side user, but his primary Force technique is the light-side associated Force Stasis. [[spoiler:After he kills his father, this becomes even worse and unbalances him, and this in combination with being shot in the gut and gradually injured gets his ass kicked in a lightsaber duel with two people vastly less experienced than him]].

Yet another variation is the result of a character who, whether from [[CloudCuckooLander insanity]], [[TooDumbToLive stupidity]], [[BlueAndOrangeMorality indifference to]] [[ItAmusedMe the rules]], or [[GodzillaThreshold sheer desperation]] [[CrossingTheStreams combines two forces]] which every rule in the book says should not be combined. In the event that they survive this, they may thereafter retain this ability to harness the two forces at will.

* "WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender" explains this is how lightning generation in Firebending is done. Iroh says that one must separate the Yin and Yang on one's body, and when they come back together they create an explosion of energy that can be redirected as lightning to the cool and focused mind. [[spoiler:When Zuko tries this, he promptly finds that his own rage and passion backfire on him. Literally.]]
** Weirdly broken in the sequel. Raava and Vaatu are shown as spirits of light/peace and darkness/chaos respectively and in eternal conflict over which one dominates making them mutually exclusive. The broken part is that they strongly invoke yin-yang symbolism (to the point of turning into the symbol briefly) but the whole point of the yin-yang ideology is harmony rather than conflict. The series ends with Raava victorious over Vaatu, which outright turns into CriticalResearchFailure.

**While the sides of order and chaos, represented respectively by angels and fallen angels are generally opposed in most games in the series, the plot in ''VideoGame/{{Shin Megami Tensei IV Apocalypse}}'' reveals that they are two halves of the forces of YHVH, who deliberately goaded half into rebelling so that they would fight against eachother in a forever war. In the end, the leaders of both sides realizing they were being played fused together to restore their original form to aid the main characters in the last fight against [[GodIsEvil God]].

*** It takes a while to get there, but this trope becomes the entire point of the end of the trilogy. The prophecied [[TheChosenOne Hero of the Ages]] destined to [[spoiler: combine the powers of Ruin and Preservation]] could be male or female based on the ancient grammar. [[spoiler: It turns out he's a eunuch instead]].

* In ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'', once Harry gains mastery over ice magic, coupled with his existing mastery of fire magic, he sometimes uses both, one after the other, to cause his opponents to explode into pieces.

* In ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'', once Harry gains mastery over ice magic, coupled with his existing mastery of fire magic, he sometimes uses both, one after the other, to cause his opponents to explode into pieces. Given the difficulty of wielding opposing elements in tandem, using them like that wins him points in the supernatural community for being both very dangerous and stylish.

* The ''Tabletopgame/YuGiOh'' card game plays with this, the main example being the now infamous "[[GameBreaker Chaos]]" archetype (which has been banned for years but radically shifted the metagame), consisting of three monsters summoned by removing from play a DARK-Attribute monster and a LLIGHT-Attribute monster. One of these, Chaos Sorcerer, provides the page picture. There are plenty of cards that act similarly, but the most prominent example is the appropriately named "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Light and Darkness Dragon]]", a monster that has ''two'' Attributes (LIGHT and DARK, obviously) simultaneously. That and, well, [[http://fc05.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2012/195/0/2/light_and_darkness_dragon_by_kai1411-d57aa80.jpg just look at it]].
