* In ''Webcomic/{{Widdershins}}'' Dominik is possessed by the spirit of Envy, and gains the ability to steal people's skills by looking them in the eye. He uses this to become rich and immensely talented, so he can go meet the person who made him so envious in the first place and show him how it feels. [[spoiler: A plan which fails immediately because [[NiceGuy Wolfe]] is genuinely pleased to see him and happy to learn he's doing so well.]]

* SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom does this a lot. Most famously, he briefly stole the ComicBook/SilverSurfer's power back in the 1960s, but on later occasions he's also stolen energy from the Beyonder (in ''ComicBook/SecretWars''), and from Aron the Rogue Watcher and the Marquis of Doom (in ''ComicBook/FantasticFour'').

* Gods, demi-gods, and godly monsters in ''VisualNovel/LabyrinthsOfAstoria'' get their powers from their Auras, with each Aura linked to its own unique artifact that the owner keeps on their person. Someone who overpowers the Aura can steal it for themselves by taking the artifact; this sort of theft is taboo in supernatural circles. At the beginning of Hydra's route, Hydra has been arrested under accusation of stealing an Aura from Hercules. [[spoiler:In actuality, Hercules is the one who's been stealing Auras from various godly monsters, including the Crow Aura that Hydra is accused of stealing and a failed attempt at stealing Hydra's own Aura that nearly killed Hydra. He's collected five of them by the time Hydra and the protagonist confront and manage to defeat him]].

* In ''Manga/HunterXHunter'', Chrollo Lucilfer is a Power Sponge - his only ability is to steal the complete set of powers from another person; the victim is effectively BroughtDownToNormal for the rest of his or her life (and cannot even sense other people with powers, a trait even some non-supers can do in this series). Chrollo has a tougher time than most to obtain these powers, as he needs to meet the person whose powers he's going to steal, Chrollo needs to hear the name of the power from said person and see it performed, needs to summon his book which stores the powers to hold it in, and needs to perform the above within 24 hours or that person becomes immune to his powers. In addition, he needs to hold the book out in order to use these powers. Chrollo is DangerouslyGenreSavvy enough to have collected a number of powers from fighters stronger than him.

In addition, he needs to hold the book out in order to use these powers. And to top it all off, the power only works for him so long as the person he stole it from is still alive, so he can't just kill the person after stealing their power. Chrollo is DangerouslyGenreSavvy enough to have collected a number of powers from fighters stronger than him.

* In ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublicIITheSithLords'', this turns out to be The Exile's power. After being cut off from the Force at Malachor V, he/she became a 'wound' in the Force that unconsciously drains the life, will and abilities from others through Force bonds. [[DeconstructedTrope In gameplay terms, this explains why killing things makes you stronger and why your party members obey you blindly.]] And also why almost your entire party are Force Sensitives.

* [[GreyAndGrayMorality Mostly heroic]] example. Harry Keogh in the last of the original ''{{Necroscope}}'' books, "Deadspawn". Spends the entire book taking other people's powers (to be fair most of them weren't needing them since they were dead at the time) for the final confrontation with the BigBad in the alternate universe. ItMakesSenseInContext.

* ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'' member [[Characters/XMen80sMembers Rogue]] has this as her superpower; depending on how long she touches a victim, it lasts from minutes to ''forever.'' In her first appearance, she got her FlyingBrick ability by permanently absorbing it from Comicbook/MsMarvel. Since Rogue's power also absorbs memories and personality traits, it took Ms. M years to recover.
