- Energy Redirection: Taking the energy absorbed, and redirect it as their own energy.
- Energy Conversion: Exact energies are converted, such as Fire being converted to electrical energy or vice versa.
- Energy Transferal: Take energies from one object/person and put it into another object/person.
- Explosion Absorption: Absorb explosions.
- Fire Absorption: Absorb flames.
- Heat Absorption: Absorb heat.

- Can't absorb self-generated energy.
- May have limited range, including touch only.
- May be limited to how much one can absorb.
- Overloading: Too much power could result in incapacitation or death.
- Overuse: Using more power than stored may exhaust the user after expending too much energy.
