** Miura Rinaldi from ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaVivid'' is another mage who is specialized in ''Breaker'' magic. This is not surprising considering that she's Nanoha's {{Expy}}[[note]]despite being Hayate's ''[=ViVid=]'' representative[[/note]].

** Likely because it's draining the bio-electricity from the victim's brain/nervous system. Hard to survive when your brain can't tell the rest of your body what to do. This doesn't explain how Metroid victims turn to ash after getting their energy drained completely.

* In ''Literature/SuperPowereds'', this is Vince's ability. Until recently, it's been a BlessedWithSuck kind of power due to his inability to control it. The whole point of the secret program is to help the Powered (those who have superpowers but not the ability to control them) to be come Supers (superpowered people who can control their abilities). Vince is first introduced after he accidentally drained an entire county of power, when trying to fix a toaster and receiving an electric shock. His doctor put him in an isolated dark ward to wait for the accumulated power to slowly bleed out of him. When demonstrating the power to Nick, Vince has him light a match and then absorb its energy (including heat), turning the match to ash. When Nick asks why the match turns to ash, Vince explains that he also absorbs the match's ''potential'' energy due to his inexperience. Unfortunately, his arch-nemesis in college is AnIcePerson, meaning Vince can't absorb his energy because cold is the ''absence'' of energy. The best he can do is charge himself up with fire beforehand and use it to counter the ice, coupling it with his superior tactical and hand-to-hand combat skills. He is later chastised by his gym teacher for only charging up the bare minimum in order not to feel exhausted for fear of losing control. The teacher gives him a year to get over it and learn to use his power to the fullest or risk getting cut from the Hero Certification Program.

It's eventually revealed that Vince lets go of his inhibitions when his friends are in danger, such as when he [[spoiler:absorbs a forest fire in California and continues to use that fire for the following year]]. In Year 2, he learns that he can [[spoiler:absorb and emit kinetic energy, meaning he can now MegatonPunch with the best of them and be able to take a crippling blow without a problem (the other fist simply stops, losing all momentum)]]. The one ability he has no one though was possible is to [[spoiler:absorb the energy created by another Super]].

* ''VideoGame/MasterOfOrion 2'' has the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Energy Absorber]], which absorbs 1/4th of the damage from an attack in combat, and allows the equipped ship to fire it back like a regular energy weapon in the next turn.

* Nanoha's [[WaveMotionGun Starlight Breaker]] in ''Franchise/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' works by absorbing the residual energy left by magical attacks in a battlefield and firing it in a [[WaveMotionGun 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=]'']].

* Anvil from ''WebComic/GrrlPower'' is superstrong by default but she can dramatically boost it by absorbing kinetic energy. Other brick-type superhumans find this a nasty surprise when she gets stronger the more times they punch her.

* ''WebOriginal/AcademyOfSuperheroesUniverse'': Arc in a peculiar variant, converts kinetic energy into superstrength and superspeed. This includes her own kinetic energy so she charges up her powers by running back and forth.
