- Genius-level Intellect: Penguin is extremely intelligent, as he was at one point one of the biggest concerns of the tactical and detective genius Batman, even when the latter was also aided by his Batman Family.
- Master Tactician: Penguin, much like his archnemesis Batman, is an genius at planning and improvising criminal activities, to the point that he was once, like the Joker, able to make himself one of Batman's biggest concerns.
- Expert Businessman: Penguin, though not quite on par with Bruce Wayne, is a brilliant businessman as Oswald Cobblepot, with his night club Iceberg Lounge quickly becoming trendy, stylish and popular after opening in Gotham City.
- Human Vulnerabilities: Penguin's greatest weakness is that he is a human with no enhanced strength, speed, durability, or metahuman powers, therefore making him quite vulnerable to the physical attacks of stronger and more powerful opponents. However, Penguin always compensates for this effectively with his brilliant intellect. Hence, Penguin has been able to keep up with the stronger and more skilled combatant Batman on occasion, and was even able to make himself one of Batman's biggest concerns at one point.
