The traditional AchillesHeel of EnergyAbsorption users is PhlebotinumOverload. Particularly astute protagonists will think to ReversePolarity and use the power as a substitute for EnergyWeapons before it overloads.... EnergyAbsorption is usually, but not always, an example of FeedItWithFire. Compare and contrast with AdaptiveAbility, which has a similar effect, but without the risk of PhlebotinumOverload. See also ElementalAbsorption when this is done with ElementalPowers. Rare RadiationImmuneMutants may go beyond mere resistance and actually feed on or absorb radiation.

* Nanoha's [[WaveMotionGun Starlight Breaker]] in ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' works by absorbing the residual energy left by magical attacks in a battlefield and firing it in a massive beam. This makes it both deadly and cost-efficient since it doesn't completely rely on a mage's own power, [[spoiler:which is the main reason why Nanoha decided to teach it to Teana after ''[=StrikerS=]'']].

* The [[DemonicInvaders Guze no Tomogara]] in ''ShakuganNoShana'' maintain their continued, unnatural existence in this world by feeding on humans' power of existence. The first villain's evil plan is to go even further by casting a "''City Devouring''", a spell greatly feared for its ability to consume and convert ''everything'' into a huge supply of usable energy.

Misuse. Developers Foresight is when the game has a response for unlikely player actions.
* ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' demons can have, depending on their position on the food chain, various absorptive abilities, allowing them to siphon the energy of various enemy attacks (even Physical attacks) and using it to replenish their own HP. However, is is worth mentioning that even EliteTweak has its limits and [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything no demon by itself is perfect]]...

* Two characters from ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' have shown this ability: ** Yang Xiao Long can absorb kinetic energy from the hits she takes, so the longer a battle goes on, the stronger she gets. After getting smashed through several concrete pillars by a MiniMecha, she is able to NoSell the Mecha's next attack before punching it to pieces. ** Nora Valkyrie can channel electricity into her body, giving her SuperStrength. During the Vytal Tournament, one of her opponents shocks her with a cattle prod; she just grins and knocks him halfway across the battlefield.

* The [[TokenMiniMoe prepubescent looking]] Hinako Ninomiya of ''[[RanmaOneHalf Ranma 1/2]]'' can absorb both KiAttacks and LifeEnergy (causing her to [[DualAgeModes transform]] into a [[HelloNurse curvaceous adult]]), and then return the energy in a [[KiAttacks ki attack]] of her own (causing her to revert to her child form).

* Lord Tirek from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' has this ability, making him NighInvulnerable unless you hit him with such a powerful blast that it overwhelms him before he can absorb it.
