The ability to absorb a being and incorporate their physiology and powers into their own. Technique of Assimilative Evolution. Variation of Biological Absorption.

Also Called

  • Parasitic Absorption


The user can absorb a being - regardless of classification, physiology, or nature - and incorporate their physiology and powers into their own.

This can extend to both internal functions and organs, to aesthetics or dimensional constitution e.g., become a partially spiritual being. They may also absorb the energy, mana, stamina, willpower, etc., that fuels them or the powers.

Each user usually has their own manner of absorption, but might also have multiple approaches for specific tasks; such as impalement to drink them and absorb just their power while having the option to simply swallow them whole. This also means that absorption doesn't have to be consensual.




  • May take a long time to complete the absorption
    • May need additional time to process the absorbed being before gaining anything
      • May allow for the being to be regurgitated by force
  • Could be interrupted
  • If absorption by an additional or specific limb, then could be disabled by removal of said limb
  • May be limited in what the user can gain from any single absorption
  • May not be able to selectively decide what is or isn't gained from an absorption
  • May also absorb weaknesses in addition to immunities or resistances
