Something random that popped into my head while reading this thread:
Suppose that I bring Onatel to a raid against a defending Onatel. Both Onatels use their specials on each other, so they’re both theoretically stealing mana from each other.
Suppose that I bring Onatel to a battle where her special could be reflected (rare yellow titan, Guardian Owl boss during the Guardians event, or when a defending Ursena has her holy reflect buff on). If Onatel’s special is reflected back at her, she would theoretically be stealing mana from herself.
In either situation, does this create an infinite loop? In other words, Onatel gains mana, which triggers the mana steal, which causes Onatel to gain mana, which triggers the mana steal…
