Summon dark energy and attack a single target. Heals the user for half of the damage dealt.


Drain is a skill obtained by collecting upgraded Cards.png Dweller Cards. Tough Drain is received from obtaining an Cards.pngElite Dweller Card. Stunning Drain is received from obtaining a Cards.pngSuper Dweller Card.
Just like all Cards.pngCard skills, there are no alternative colors.

The timing for the Action Command is right before the skill deals damage, right after the camera stops turning.
Succeeding the Action Command performs an 'Critical!' hit, increasing the amount of POW.pngDamage dealt.


Drain deals a good amount of POW.pngDamage to the target while also HP.pngHealing the user by half the amount.

Compared to other damage dealing skills such as Stone Arm and Evil Impact, Drain focuses on self sustenance, healing the user by a small amount for each use. Keep in mind that the amount HP.pngHealed depends on the POW.pngDamage dealt, so targets with high DEF.pngDefense will provide less HP.pngHealing than targets with less or without.

Drain is useful in battles where healing with items becomes unfavorable, such as trying to reserve healing items or battling Bedrock. Drain is also very useful in dungeons such as the Overgrown Grotto, where shops and inns are absent and HP Restores are disabled. In general, Drain provides an alternative way of healing other than the use of items.


  • The amount HP.pngHealed from Drain is half of the POW.pngDamage dealt, rounded down.
    • Even if the target's HP.pngHealth is lower than the POW.pngDamage dealt, you'll still heal half the POW.pngDamage dealt.
    • The amount HP.pngHealed from Drain is affected by Flower Power, but only when the move does at least POW.png5 Damage to an enemy.


  • Drain is the only skill that POW.pngDamages a single target while HP.pngHealing the user, provided that the skill deals POW.png2 Damage and above.
  • Drain used to have a past name, which was Dark Aura.
  • This and Stone Arm are tied for being the 2nd Strongest Move in Stunning Form, only triumphed by Stunning Evil Impact by POW.png1 Damage.
