  • Characteristics Bonus: None

The character takes less damage from attacks than they usually would. For 5 character points, the character takes 25 percent less damage from either Physical, Energy, or Mental attacks after their initial defenses are subtracted from their attacker's damage roll; from what category they reduce the damage must be specified when the character creates the Power. This percentage reduced increases to 50 percent for 10 character points and 75 percent for 20 character points. Damage Reduction is bypassed by Armor Piercing and Penetrating attacks unless the character purchases the Hardened or Impenetrable Additions for the Power.

Source-specific effects:

  • Natural: Natural Damage Reduction cannot take Limitations, but it cannot be Dispelled, and it has a Persistent duration.
