Elements represent the 'colours' or 'affiliations' in the Final Fantasy TCG. There are currently 8 elements:
When paying a cost, at least one of the crystals used to pay for the cost must match the element of the card being played.
Light and Dark are special elements as they cannot be used to pay for costs of cards via discarding from your hand. You can also only have one Light and one Dark card on the field at once - so having one Light and one Dark is allowed, but not two Light. Some cards override this ruling.
