* The recurring spell [[MeaningfulName Nosferatu]] drains an amount of HP from the enemy to give to the user, as well as the [[http://fireemblem.wikia.com/wiki/Sol_(Skill) Sol ability]], which adds this quality to regular attacks. The first hit of the special skill Aether also does this, as [[http://fireemblem.wikia.com/wiki/Aether Aether]] is simply Sol and Luna put together.

* ''WarhammerOnline'' has a large selection for a variety of classes - mostly healers, who get spells and tactics that heal when dealing damage such as a tactic granting a straight 25% of damage dealt returned as healing to your defensive target; specific abilities that deal damage and give back healing at 50%, 100%, 150% or [[GameBreaker 350%]] of the value of the damage dealt; or other, more esoteric methods (a [[{{Nerf}} removed ability]] for a [[CombatMedic Zealot]] was to place a debuff on an enemy that would last 60 seconds, and transfer life every 5 seconds). However, melée classes also have abilities to steal life and either bolster themselves or, in the case of tanks, the person they're guarding.

* In ''Videogame/EarthBound,'' [[GadgeteerGenius Jeff's]] HP-sucker machine does this to a single enemy, though it has a chance of failure each time it's used. Its souped-up version, the Hungry HP-sucker, does this to ''all'' enemies in a battle, though like the previous model it also has a chance of failure.

** The ability 'Liquid Ooze' (possessed by Tentacool, Gulpin, and their evolutions) causes any HP-draining attacks aside from Dream Eater used against the wielder to instead cause damage to the drainer (though the damage itself is not negated).

** Pokémon, for its worth, has all three types. "Dream Eater" restores full damage (but requires the victim to be asleep), "Absorb" and family restore half (Oblivion Wing and Draining Kiss restore 75%), and the "Shell Bell" hold item (activates whenever an attack successfully connects with the foe) restores 1/8.

** In ''FireEmblemJugdral'', Raquesis [[spoiler: and later her daughter Nanna]]'s personal weapon is the [[http://fireemblem.wikia.com/wiki/Earth_Sword Earth Sword]], which allows either of them to drain the HP of a selected enemy unit in order to restore their own. A similar weapon named [[http://fireemblem.wikia.com/wiki/Runesword Runesword]] appears in the GBA games and in [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Path of Radiance]].

* [[Comicbook/DoctorStrange Shuma-Gorath]] has a throw that does this in his appearances in ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom''; it started out being able to take all life but eventually was downgraded to only restore Shuma's 'red' life. {{Thanos}} also has a super that can drain life in his two appearances. [[Comicbook/XMen Omega Red]] could do this with his [[CombatTentacles Tentacle Throw]] special attack after grabbing an opponent.

* In ''Videogame/AkatsukiBlitzkampf'', the KnowledgeBroker Sai possesses a DeadlyGaze that lets him inflict several stat-changing afflictions on his foes. His Super tops it by not only giving all these "curses" to the target at the same time, but also draining him/her of life energy and adding it to Sai's own life bar. [[spoiler: It turns out to be a plot point, since this specific power has helped [[OlderThanTheyLook Sai]] to keep himself young and at top notch fighting form ''through at least five or six decades'', letting him become a major player in the story.]]
