  • Expert Combatant: Batgirl, as the daughter of Commissioner James Gordon, is well trained in hand-to-hand combat, and later armed combat under Batman's guidance, which made her extremely skilled in martial arts, enough to serve alongside Batman as his protegé vigilante.

  • Human Vulnerabilities: Batgirl's greatest weakness is that she is a human with no enhanced strength, speed, durability, or metahuman powers, therefore making her quite vulnerable to the physical attacks of stronger and more powerful opponents. Batgirl, however, usually compensates for this quite well with her highly durable fire- and bulletproof suit, tremendous combat skills, exceptional agility, and highly sophisticated technological gadgets.

  • Batarangs: Barbara, under the tutelage of Batman, was instructed to uilize Batman's extremely sharp and non-lethal throwing gadgets, carrying out various different tasks, from incapacitating criminals to breaking through windows.

  • Grapple Gun: As Batgirl, Barbara used a line launching, multi-purpose, highly versatile, and handgun-like device that fires a retractable, detachable line with a mechanized, magnetic, or clawed end, which Batgirl utilized to traverse Gotham City.
