* ''Film/StarWars'': Yoda displays this ability in Episodes II and III, using it as a counter to the Siths' famous Force Lightning. It seems, however, that he can only absorb so much of it before it all explodes outward.

* In ''Manga/BlackClover'', Ladros has the ability to absorb other people's magic and re-emit it in the form of [[KiManipulation ki lasers]] or [[HealThyself healing]]. He also learned how to forcibly disperse incoming magic into the air around him so he can absorb it at a pace he can handle, rendering him immune to the usual PhlebotinumOverload associated with this trope.

** This is Vorahk's ability.

** The quote above originates from Vezon, the FinalBoss of the 2006 storyline. One of the powers the [[MacGuffin Mask of Life]] gave him after making him its guardian was the ability to absorb kinetic energy, so any attack that struck him or his mount Fenrakk would only make them physically stronger. They could also get stronger by attacking things ''themselves'', so that even in the event an enemy could hurt them indirectly (creating a vacuum, dehydrating the air, increasing or decreasing the temperature to extreme levels), all they'd have to do to restore their energy was to literally ''stomp on the ground continuously and very hard''. [[spoiler:Things only got slightly easier later on when Fenrakk transformed and lost the ability to share Vezon's ability, but gained [[BreathWeapon extremely powerful energy blasts]] in exchange]]. Due to its [[StoryBreakerPower game-changing abilities]], Vezon lost this power when he lost the mask.

* Mjolnir can be used to absorb and redirect virtually unlimited amounts of energy. [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Thor]] has used Mjolnir to absorb Hyperion's atomic vision, the ComicBook/SilverSurfer's Power Cosmic attacks, and Heimdall's blue cosmic flames. Absorbed energy can be amplified 10 to 100 fold before being redirected at Thor's attacker. One of Mjolnir's greatest feats occurred in ''Thor #407'', where the hammer managed to contain the galaxy-destroying power of a Null Bomb before using the power to reignite a dying sun.
