The drain "lightning" effect is in "effects/mp" or whatever it's called, the body effects are all just shaders. Not entirely sure about the grip hand, might be a modifications of the push blur effect.

I think there's an entry somewhere called "protectionfield" or some variation of that. I don't know which file it's in I'm afraid, but just check the 2d and effects shaders.

Simple answer: They're not effects.

Example: If you're using protect, the game will render your model twice. First your original model, then the model with the protect shader applied. It's also a vertex shader, which is why the 'shell' deforms according to the shape of your model. No effect could do that. The game handles displaying that effect, but you should be able to control what it looks like if you locate the shader it uses, if you can.

EDIT: Grip uses force push .efx, just hardcoded to be colored red. Rage should be in the same place. Drain lightning is there too.

Also I just merged the threads, so now my post is last <.<..
