A term used to describe the winning potential of one side or color in a game of chess usually based on the position of chess pieces on the board. When one side or color in a game of chess is winning the game, then that side is said to have the advantage, edge, pull, or plus. For example, a "clear advantage" (edge, pull, or plus) is enough to win with correct play, whereas a "slight edge" just offers better practical chances even though the players might draw the position with best play. A judgment of an advantage must consider complex criteria such as material (more pieces or pawns), space (more room to maneuver), activity (more influence of pieces), king safety (one side has a safer king than the other), or other weaknesses (backward pawn, etc.).

Note, the difference between a harm and an advantage is semantic; a harm could just have easily been labeled an advantage.
In cryptography, an adversary's advantage is a measure of how successfully it can attack a cryptographic algorithm, by distinguishing it from an idealized version of that type of algorithm. Note that in this context, the "adversary" is itself an algorithm and not a person. A cryptographic algorithm is considered secure if no adversary has a non-negligible advantage, subject to specified bounds on the adversary's computational resources (see concrete security).
