The power to absorb life-force/energy and utilize it in some way. Combination of Power Absorption and Life-Force Manipulation. Variation of Absorption.

Also Called

  • Life Absorption/Draining/Siphoning
  • Life Energy Absorption/Draining/Siphoning
  • Life-Force Draining/Siphoning
  • Plunder
  • Vitality Absorption/Draining/Siphoning


The user can absorb life-force/energy, vitality and health, while removing it from the source, into their body and use it in various ways, gaining some form of advantage, either by enhancing themselves, gaining the drained power, using it as power source etc., either temporarily or permanently.

As many superpowers are derived from life force, user may be able to absorb them from the targets. Any attacks derived from superpowers are also vulnerable to such abilities, as the energy and matter produced contains the user's life force, which can be drained and rendering the attack useless. Extended drain may result in extended or permanent effects, or even death.





  • May be involuntary or constantly active.
