* This is the power of Josh, hero of ''Webcomic/{{Middleways}}'' and he is very troubled to think how easily he could kill someone with it, and how good it would feel. Other characters are aware of this and are varying shade of sympathetic or distrusting.

* Mana Drain spells exist in ''LightNovel/ReZero'', and since mana is essentially a person's life energy, draining one's mana can seriously tire or even kill them.

* The [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Defiler]] in ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' has mana drain as their basic way of recovering energy. Despite being demons, many demonic factions will [[EvilVirtues cooperate]] to let Defilers take small amounts of mana off the top of the whole faction for a more efficient demonic war machine, but angels and transcended humans are always the preferred target.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' has Osmose found in Wakka's Sphere Grid. If taught to your dedicated BlackMage (usually Lulu), it facilitates near [[GameBreaker game-breaking]] spamming of Flare and/or Ultima. Especially since you can pull the MP from allies if you want.

* The ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' series has Mana/Spirit Drain, depending on the game. Very useful in the SMT line, not so much in the ''Persona'' line (where you're lucky to get better than twenty points back).
** Of course, while it's something of a UselessUsefulSpell for the player in the ''Persona'' series, ''enemies'' using said ability are even further into DemonicSpiders territory than quite a few enemies already are due to the difficulty of replenishing SP, particularly in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}''.
** A more useful variant is in ''VideoGame/DevilSurvivor'', that may even be considered a GameBreaker; it gets both [[LifeDrain H]][[HitPoints P]] and {{M|anaPoints}}P, is [[NonElemental unblockable]], and is nearly the ''only'' way to restore MP mid-battle.
