* In ''Videogame/{{Borderlands 2}}'', all Moxxi weapons (which are generally earned as unique quest rewards) have the ability to heal you for a percentage of the damage dealt when you wield them. While for most of them it's generally roughly 2-5%, the Rubi has a 12% healing rate while the Grog Nozzle has a 65%. A [[DamageIncreasingDebuff slag]] variation of the weapon can result in some very potent healing and is somewhat necessary in higher difficulties.

The "health gating" mechanic, which makes it impossible for enemies to deplete your entire health bar in one hit as long as you are over 50% health, has made the slag Rubi and Grog Nozzle examples of ComplacentGamingSyndrome, because they can make you literally unkillable with the right build. If you don't use either of these weapons then be prepared to have many people tell you that [[StopHavingFunGuys you're playing the game wrong]].

* Speaking of Fire Emblem, "VideoGame/SuperSmashBros" features Robin from Awakening, and one of his moves is Nosferatu, which traps opponents and deals damage at the same time that Robin is being healed.

This is my first edit on this wiki. Noticed that while it appears on the character page, it doesn't appear here. Just tried to fix that.

* A staple effect of black spells in ''TabletopGame/MagcTheGathering'', as well as white spells such as Spirit Link (which tend to emphasize the healing portion of the effect; Spirit Link takes something that automatically does damage--creature combat--and makes it heal you too) and the mechanic lifelink. The most notable spells in this category are Consume Spirit, Drain Life, and Tendrils of Agony.

* In ''BarkleyShutUpAndJamGaiden'', Barkley can learn Vampire Dunk which hits an enemy and heals Barkley for the amount of HitPoints damaged. Later there's a BonusBoss' skill Soul Consume, which combines this with a OneHitKill. * In ''{{Wizard101}}'', this is one of the Death School's specialties - healing the caster for half the damage dealt to the opponent(s). They can also do this in reverse to heal themselves or allies, speed up the preparation for stronger spells, or even boost the attack power of spells.

* In ''CommandAndConquerRedAlert3'', the Soviet faction is likely the only non-magical military faction to utilize this attack. Their Main Battle Tank, the Hammer, utilizes it as part of a secondary ability, and a faction-wide upgrade called "Grinder Treads" lets the Hammer, Apocalypse and other tracked vehicles recover health by running over enemy infantry (or tanks for the Apocalypse).

* The Vampire Knives from ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'' give you back a small portion of damage dealt as health. Thing is, they're thrown in huge spreads quite rapidly, and being a ''melee'' weapon, costs no mana or ammo.

* ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'': ** There's a magic weapon that's actually called the Life Drain. It's a partial subversion, however, because it doesn't give you back life according to the damage dealt, but increases your the rate of your RegeneratingHealth when draining from enemies instead. ** The Vampire Knives from ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'' give you back a small portion of damage dealt as health.
