Drain (ドレイン Dorein?) is an ability introduced in Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories. It allows the user to grant the Drain status to allies or themselves.


In Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories, Drain is an enemy card effect that allows Sora to regain HP equivalent to 1/8 of the target's remaining HP (max recovery is 20) when striking enemies with attack cards, in exchange for enemies dropping 25% fewer EXP items. It costs 35 CP to add to the deck and lasts for one reload.
