It's connected to [[OurSoulsAreDifferent souls]], HermeticMagic, KiAttacks, PsychicPowers and other superpowers; see also {{Mana}}. In RolePlayingGame terms, it's the combination of Hit Points, Magic Points, and Experience. Transferring it may cause physical changes that are LiquidAssets. Occasionally, part of an EquivalentExchange to power an ArtifactOfDoom or EvilWeapon.

* Essence in ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}'' is kind of this: Put simply, it's how 'in tune' your personal magical field is with your corporeal body. People can lose Essence by getting their auras disturbed (being attacked by TheUndead or becoming burn-out addicts to a narcotic for example) or by [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul replacing too much of their body with cybernetics]]. Essence Loss is very bad for mages since it limits their ability to do magic, and too much Essence loss causes emotional problems, dissociative mental issues and eventually death. ** Notably, TheUndead in ''Shadowrun'' explicitly feed on Essence. The part where a vampire drinks your blood is because this is the best way to create an emotional state (namely, fear of your attacker) where it's easiest for them to drain your Essence -- the liquid itself is of no particular import, which is why ''Shadowrun'' vampires can't raid blood banks or drink from the sleeping to get their fix.

[[folder:Other Sites]] * ''Wiki/SCPFoundation'', Characters/{{SCP Foundation SCPs 1000 And Beyond}} ** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-1716 SCP-1716 ("Imperfect Life Extender")]] is a device that transfers life force from one person to another. ** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-1807 SCP-1807 ("Home Sweet Okapi")]].

[[folder:Web Comics]] * [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Tristram's]] power in ''Webcomic/{{Earthsong}}'' is the draining and replacement (thereby, healing) of Life Energy. * In ''Webcomic/{{Thunderstruck}}'', it is explained that vampires don't feed on blood per se, but on the Life Energy it carries. * Medicine in ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' seems to rely on "Galvanic energy," which is usually fed through big machines, or from the waters of the [[MeaningfulName Dyne]].

* The Parasite in ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'' is basically a male villainous {{expy}} of [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Rogue]]. Humans usually wind up unconscious and twitching a little. He can also gain access to their memories, and [[VoicesAreMental sound like them]]. When he does it to [[SuperEmpowering Superman, however...]] ** The Parasite is hardly an expy of Rogue, as he is far the older character; he was around in the 60s.

* In ''Franchise/DragonAge'' this is the true source of magical power. Magic draws power from the Fade, the realm of dreams and thought, which draws energy from life. Magic can be fueled by [[BloodMagic blood]] or lyrium [[spoiler:which turns out to be the blood of the Titans.]]

''"Life Force" redirects here. For the NES game, [[VideoGame/{{Gradius}} go here]]. For the 1985 film, [[Film/{{Lifeforce}} go here]].''

Not to be confused with [[VideoGame/{{Gradius}} the NES space jet game of the same title]], or the 1985 sci-fi movie ''Film/{{Lifeforce}}''.

* In ''Series/LostInSpace'', the most valuable substance in the universe is known as cosmonium and described as the quintessence of all life. The space miner Nerim has devised a method for producing it from raw minerals, with [[EarthShatteringKaboom some unfortunate collateral damage to the planets he mines them from]]. Even a few drops of cosmonium are capable of [[spoiler:giving life to an inanimate object, such as a statue]].
