There's this scene in the Jet Li movie Swordsman II where in the course of a breakout, an old martial arts master drains the life essence out of two guards. Not only does this kill them, it also instantly shrinks them to the size of Cabbage Patch Kids.
Later, when his comrades are about to attack the aged master, Jet Li warns: "Look out! He knows Essence-Absorbing Stance!".
My friends and I repeated that line to each other for weeks afterward.
