  • Temporary Power Absorption


The user can temporarily borrow the powers and/or skills of another and use it as their own, which may cause the target to lose borrowed powers in a similar fashion of Power Absorption.

They may be able to borrow powers from powerful objects and/or drawing power from even deceased beings.





  • Users of Power Anchoring are immune.
  • May have limited range, including touch only.
  • Time limit of borrowed powers may vary.
  • Powers that can be borrowed may be limited to a certain type.
  • May not be able to choose whose power the user borrows.
  • The power does not grant innate knowledge of the power the user obtains, meaning they may not have knowledge of the dangers of their borrowed power.
  • If the target dies, the link to their powers may sever before normal limit.
  • May leave the user without their power.
