Martial arts characters may purchase Power Defense with the -1 Limitation, "Only Protects Against Drain-Based Martial Attacks" (-1). This will protect them against the sort of abilities described under "Drain," above, and "Transform," below. At the GM's option this form of Power Defense might also offer protection against certain kinds of Oriental sorcery.
Power Defense would normally work against Dim Mak, since that ability is built with Drain. However, Dim Mak is supposed to be scary; for this reason, GMs should not let heroic-level martial artists buy Power Defense to protect themselves against it, and should require superheroic martial artists to take a (or -0, if the GM prefers) Limitation on the Power Defense because it will not protect against the death touch.
