  • Sonic scream: Black Canary has a subsonic scream which generates a powerful sound wave, which can disintegrate arrows, shatter glass and knock people unconscious. When she uses her subsonic scream the sound around her becomes muffled in order to project her "Canary Cry". Her scream caused Clark Kent's ears to bleed; it's possible he was especially vulnerable due to his super hearing. According to Toyman's files, her Canary Cry is strong enough to shatter metal.
  • Super dexterity: Black Canary is quite agile and mobile in her movements, as she has shown to be able to do flips and jumps easily.
  • Skilled hand-to-hand combatant: Dinah is a very talented hand-to-hand combatant and fighter, who is able to overpower most, though not all, opponents, in fights. Where she learned her skills remains vague.
