* ''VideoGame/BravelyDefault'' has Bone Crush, which deals damage equal to the difference between the user's maximum and current HP. If the targets are at full or near-full HP, they ScratchDamage, while if they have half their remaining HP or less, it's a OneHitKill. You can get the spell yourself late in the game as BlueMagic (or the equivalent thereof). It also has Dark Breath, Dragon Breath, and Minus Strike, which are somewhere between this and FixedDamageAttack. Dragon Breath deals damage equal to the user's current HP, while the other two deal damage equal to the difference between the user's maximum and current HP. [[HealthDamageAsymmetry (Unfortunately for you, those two are also used by bosses....)]]

* In ''{{DROD}} RPG: Tendry's Tale'', stepping on a hot tile takes 5% of HP; stepping through an Aumtlich beam takes 50%. Optimisation often requires leaving healing potions untaken so your HP is low when you incur the percentage attacks, then taking them afterwards.

* The ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' games use the Gravity spells from ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' as well with their strength being determined by how high Sora's max MP to remove a percentage of remaining HP from bosses, with the added benefit of also flattening enemies and leaving them unable to attack. Although [[ContractualBossImmunity most bosses are immune]] and [[spoiler: all Heartless will get an increase in defense after beating Hallow Bastion the first time.]]

** In ''VideoGame/DigitalDevilSaga'', ''most'' Hama/exorcism spells reduce HP by a percentage with a decent chance of working (both of those depending on the spell), but they will instant kill enemies weak to them (Mudo/death is always a OneHitKill).

* Pretty much a staple of LeagueOfLegends in several variations as below. Designed as a major tactical decision for a player, since percent damage works extremely well against characters with lots of HP but few other defenses, but is very ineffective against people with low HP that rely on healing or armor to defend themselves. Certain types of percent damage attacks are more common for certain archetypes:

Added DiffLines:

* The DungeonsAndDragons spell Harm is a 100% damage attack, which reduces the target to one hit point above zero (or 1 to 4 hp above zero in some versions), meaning the next hit that does damage will kill it.

** The Blood Sword of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyII'' drains 1/16th of the target's max HP per hit, making it [[GameBreaker ridiculously powerful]] against bosses. Enemies' HP-draining physical attacks in the original Famicom version worked the same way.




to:

* ''VideoGame/LufiaIIRiseOfTheSinistrals'' and ''VideoGame/LufiaTheLegendReturns'' have [[LimitBreak IP attacks]] that do damage equal to a percentage of the target's current HP. Notably, they always avert ContractualBossImmunity and are typically necessary for overcoming otherwise {{Hopeless Boss Fight}}s or {{Time Limit Boss}}es.
