Red Essence is an item in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars that, when used in battle, makes the user invincible for usually three turns, though rarely, the effect may last for up to five turns. It also removes all status effects from the recipient.

The Red Essence is available in the Inn in Nimbus Land, being given by Toad after Mario wakes up from a nightmare, and two are hidden in the Forest Maze near the save point and at the beginning of Land's End, respectively. It is also possible to randomly receive one from Grate Guy while playing "Look the other way," but it is somewhat rare.
