The user can absorb magical energy, power and other forms of magic, 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.




  • Absorption Immunity can counteract this power.
  • As this power is limited to magic, it won't be compatible with powers that have no relation with arcane forces.
  • Can't absorb self-generated energy.
  • The user's ability might not be compatible with either subjects or objects.
  • May have limited range, including touch only.
  • May be limited to how much one can absorb.
    • Exceeding limit may cause various problems from discomfort to self-harm, or even death.


While not a limitation on its own, magic may return to the user's previous victim's/opponents once they are defeated/killed, or if their own magic-absorbing object is demolished.
