Intelligence: As the embodiment of Earth itself, Gaea knows everything that has happened or is happening on its surface.

Weaknesses: Gaea is vulnerable when manifesting in physical form but must do so to enact her full power and loses control over the earth if her physical body is away from the ground, Although she cannot be killed, her consciousness and physical form can "scattered" in such away that she will never be able to completely reform.

- Earth Manipulation: As a personification of Earth, she bears absolute authority over all landforms on it and can easily reshape it at will. In addition, she is aware of everything that has happened or is happening on Earth.
