Haki: There are normally two types of Haki regular people can tap into: the Kenbunshoku Haki which allows individuals to sense the presence of others, and Busōshoku Haki which allows individuals to create an invisible armor around them. There is however a third type of Haki, Haōshoku Haki, that only a few individuals can use. Luffy is one of these people.
- Busoshoku Haki (Color of Armaments): Burgess has displayed an Adept application with this type of Haki, capable of applying Busoshoku: Koka on parts of his limbs and armor.
- Hado Elbow (波動エルボー, Hadō Erubō, literally meaning "Wave Motion Elbow"): Burgess attacks with an elbow strike powerful enough to cause huge shock waves upon the impact. It was first seen during the finals of Corrida Colosseum against a Fighting Fish, sending it flying away, and at the same time a shock wave to the audience, causing massive destruction. In the anime, his arm vibrates while preparing for the attack and his elbow emits vibrational waves similar to those of Hasshoken techniques. In the FUNimation subs, this is called Shockwave Elbow.
- Galleon Lariat (不沈艦（ガレオン）ラリアット, Gareon Rariatto, literally meaning "Unsinkable Battleship Lariat"): Burgess swings his arm at his opponent, resulting in a shockwave powerful enough to cut buildings several meters away completely in half. This was first used against Sabo.
