While not named, Reverse Drain (吸収攻撃, Kyuushuu Kougeki?, lit. Absorption Attack) is an unused and dummied out elemental defense related to drain. The only way the player can get this protection is by the use of a cheating device.
This protection alone does nothing and prevents nothing. However, if it's paired with the Drain protection on any current equipped piece of armor, not only will the drain protection reduce the damage taken from the drain attack, but it will also reverse the effect of drain; the enemy will take damage while the character that was attacked will be healed.
