- Aura Synthesis: Meruem's initial ability gives him strength through consumption. Meruem's aura grows every time he devours a user of Nen, with their aura synthesizing to his own.
- Metamorphosis: Meruem can give himself wings, extra eyes and limbs, and even recompose his entire body structure utilizing aura. He gained this ability after consuming large parts of Menthuthuyoupi.
- Rage Blast: Meruem is able to use Menthuthuyoupi's ability to use "Rage" in a concentrated blast of aura.
- Photon: After absorbing large parts of Shaiapouf and Menthuthuyoupi, he is able to use and evolve Shaiapouf's ability Spiritual Message. This secondary ability allows him to transmute his aura into photons. Each photon maintains his aura, allowing Meruem to measure the shape, quality, emotion, and other informational content about the things the photons interact with, and as stated by Welfin and Shaiapouf, he can know everything, even lies. The precision of the information he can gather depends on the quantity of photons directed at the object of interest. Meruem deploys these photons in his En in a flash, and then is able to instantly go to anything the photons reach.
