[[WordOfGod Lucas]] implies that fueling your Force powers with emotions (i.e. giving into the Dark Side) amplifies said emotions, making you give into them a bit more every time instead of just using them as a power source. That's what makes the Dark Side so dangerous -- you WILL go [[DrunkWithPower mad with power]], the faster the more confident you are in your 'control' over them. As for "Light" and "Dark" Force powers, they're more a staple of philosophy (protect vs. attack) that's more likely to employ them (and thus rely more on the Light or Dark) than specifically a tool of either Side. It just happens that lashing out with emotion makes for a stronger attack, hence the association.

* In the ''Videogame/{{Diablo}}'' series, the reason that HumansAreSpecial is that they were first bred from forbidden relationships between angels and demons, and as a result display a blend of traits which cannot be found in either of their parent races.

** in ''IV'', Nature magic focuses on summoning animals and magical beings and buffing allies, while Death magic focuses on cursing enemies and resurrecting slain creatures as undead. Using both in combination allows the summoning of demons. The protagonist of IV's Death campaign, Gauldoth, is able to do this.

But ''our'' guy, the Yin-Yang Bomber, 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]].

* A variation of this is one of six elements in ''SkiesOfArcadia'': the powers that are bestowed by the [[WeirdMoon Silver Moon]] are that of life and death. Silver spells either revive fallen comrades or cause instant death. [[spoiler:This also applies to the Silvites, the old peoples who once lived during the Old World under the Silver Moon: instead of having just one crystal, all of them hold a fragment of the Silver Moon Crystal in their bodies, and removing them, as Ramirez tries to demonstrate on Fina in-game, kills the host.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'': In the second and third games, one of the optional summons is Ulysses (who's a mage for some reason) who sends magical flying jaws at enemies and requires two Mars and two Mercury Djinn. Other summons that require different amounts of opposing elements are Flora (earth and wind, attacking with petals) and Iris (fire and water to send enemies into the Sun).

** [[NoExportForYou If you live outside Japan and haven't looked it up, you'd never know]], but in ''Kingdom Hearts II'', Sora gets the Two Become One keyblade after defeating Roxas. The keyblade itself is covered in silver, white, and black sections, symbolizing a combination of Sora's light and darkness (and his combining with Roxas). Its special effect is called "Light and Darkness", which causes him to, when he Drives, become either Final Form, as described above, or Anti Form, a shadowy Heartless-like Sora, no matter which (usually low-cost) Drive form you actually ''chose''. In this case, Final Form represents light, and Anti Form represents Darkness.

** In ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep Birth By Sleep]]'', Master Xehanort preaches the virtues of this path to Terra, telling him that Eraqus's way of shutting out and killing the darkness is just as wrong as succumbing to darkness entirely, and that the right way to protect the worlds is to wield light and darkness in equal measure. [[spoiler:He's full of crap. The possible truth of his statements notwithstanding, he's only telling Terra this so that he can get him to give into darkness. His written intention for wanting to start the Keyblade War is to forge a new world with the two powers in balance, but thus far, he's only shown alignment with Darkness, and obsession with its power.]]
