* This is the entire a concept of ''Series/{{Wizards of Waverly Place}}''. It holds the Wizard Competition, which is a contest between siblings to test them on everything they have learned about wizardry. The winning sibling drains the powers of the losing sibling becoming a full wizard.

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' functions on this principle; the Dragonborn (And presumably other dragons), upon killing a dragon, eat its soul and gain its knowledge of how to use the Thu'um.

** The [[VideoGame/MegaMan Classic]] series seems to have it as an innate ability of top end robots, since Mega Man, Proto Man, and Bass can all use the weapons of defeated Robot Masters. In ''Power Fighters'', Duo can too. Roll has only been shown to use Robot Master weapons, and only in the non-canon ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom'' series. (Furthermore, its successor ''Tatsunoko vs. Capcom'' ditched this aspect in her new moveset.)

* A staple of the VideoGame/{{Kirby}} games, where, after beating a mini-boss, the titular hero can eat and copy their ability.

* You can gain new Rune Classes in ''VideoGame/RakenzarnFrontierStory'' by swiping them off bosses. This is justified by the fact that they're using the same Rune Crystals that grant them their classes as you are, so it makes sense that their users are interchangeable. It's also a plot point as Rune Crystals are supposed to be Realmwalker gear only, so just ''where'' they're getting those from is a mystery.



* ''WesternAnimation/{{Samurai Jack}}'': Jack takes Scaramouche's tuning fork after defeating him in battle as his own blade is too heavy for him to carry.

* French artist Asur has since 2015 drawn [[http://imgur.com/gallery/v6VdZAZ the]] [[http://i.imgur.com/rJYJuBu.jpg NBA]] [[http://imgur.com/gallery/B6tmy playoffs]] with the teams represented by mascots\avatars fighting each other, with the winner taking a BattleTrophy from the defeated; in some cases, it gives an ability as well (i.e: Toronto Raptor beat Miami Heat: [[BreathWeapon fire-breathing]]; Golden State Warrior beat Houston Rocket: JetPack).
