Absorb Magic

From Dragon Quest Wiki

Absorb Magic is a spell in the Dragon Quest series.

It enables a party member to recover MP each time they are targeted by an enemy spell, with the recovery amount being said incantation's MP cost.

The recurring armour piece Glombolero has a chance duplicate this effect when worn, albeit rarely.
