Yin and Yang is a anime/manga concept
Edit this Page
The content below is entirely editable.

It is a concept that shows the balance of one's light and dark sides. Yin stands for light and Yang stands for darkness, so these halves make up a whole.


Yin and Yang related characters do not necessarily need to have a mark on their bodies. They can be in pairs such as the characters Yin and Yang from the "Yin, Yang, Yo!"

Without a yin or a yang, a person is off balance in their personality and spirituality.
