Intelligence: Amuro is a veteran of many battles and arguably the best pilot of his time, with his only rival being Char Aznable. He is pragmatic, resourceful, and a quick thinker in a fight, shedding equipment as a distraction, creating traps to deter and ensnare foes, and even learning to shoot down Psycommu weaponry in the midst of their dreaded "omnidirectional attack" despite only encountering them hours before. He is also an amazing Mobile Suit designer, having the Nu Gundam himself after receiving Char's Psychoframe schematics.
Weakness: The RX-78-2 in some material is stated to have been unable to keep up with Amuro's reflexes.|Psychoframe's resonance could destroy his machine and kill him (It does in the novel and is left up to interpretation in the movie), Needs to hook up to a power source for the Hyper Mega Bazooka Launcher.
- Clairvoyance: Can sense the surrounding area and people within it beyond a normal human's sight capacity. Capable of obtaining information that he didn't see or hear. Amuro was able to concentrate his senses in order to pinpoint the exact location of the Braw Bro and instantly knew the weak points of the battleship in order to destroy it.
- Empathy: Can read the intent of his opponent and predict their movements, feel and even "see" their emotions. Envisioned the emotions of a desperate Dozel Zabi as a giant bat monster.
- Telepathy: Can communicate with other newtypes from many kilometers away or even the dead. Was able to instruct the White Base crew on how and where to go in order to escape the exploding A Baoa Qu from kilometers away.
