Moon Knight gains enhanced strength, endurance, and reflexes at night, reaching his pinnacle during a full moon, and sometimes has prophetic visions.
Moon Knight is a skilled boxer, commando, martial artist, acrobat, gymnast and pilot. His multiple identities grant him resistance to some psychic assaults.
Moon Knight usually carries a truncheon which can be modified into nunchuks, and silver darts shaped like crescent moons. While serving the Committee, Moon Knight wore a silver cestus on each arm, studded with spikes. While he served the Priests of Khonshu, Moon Knight wielded an ankh which he used as a club, an ax, a boomerang, throwing irons, and bolas. Most of these Egyptian weapons had actually been designed and built for the priests by the time-displaced Hawkeye. Later, Moon Knight wore protective Adamantium armor and wielded an Adamantium staff, a truncheon which could fire a cable line, and gauntlets which could fire his crescent darts. As Marc Spector he wielded various firearms, and would occasionally employ them in his Moon Knight identity as well.
His cape can serve as a glider. For transportation, Moon Knight has employed a variety of sophisticated aircraft. These have included the Mooncopter and Angelwing; the vehicles have featured VTOL (vertical take-off and landing), a rope ladder, and 20 mm cannons.
