Classification: Formerly human; Monster; Evil Incarnate

Powers and Abilities: Levitation, Intangibility, Dream Manipulation and Manifestation, Immortality (type 1), Shapeshifting (Mostly dead people. Medusa spiders and Walt are exceptions) and implied mind reading (He would have to know who people like Christian Shepherd are to transform into them, so he would've had to read either Jack's or the deceased Christian's (it's possible in the show) mind), Paralyzing venom (as Medusa spiders), superhuman strength, Precognition (knew the events on the sub, that Locke was going to die, and the crash of flight 316), Electromagnetic manipulation, Necromancy | His adoptive mother has fans speculate that he has powers even pre-death

Attack Potency: At least Wall level (Has crashed through trees and walls), possibly Large Island level (Powered by the Heart of the Island. His escape from the island would be the end of all things good.) | Human level, Street level with a weapon

Lifting Strength: Above average human (Overpowered Eko)

Striking Strength: Wall Class (Didn't one-shot Eko, but still casually destroys walls) | Human Class

Stamina: High

Range: A few kilometers (should be this large) | Average human range

Standard Equipment: None notable.

Intelligence: Extremely high. He has thousands of years of experience and is a master manipulator. His powers of persuasion was present from the beginning of the show. Found a loophole into killing Jacob, as he is not allowed to do that himself. Turned long time protagonists onto his side.

Weaknesses: Sonar fences, ash circles, and explosives can repel him, but will not harm him whatsoever. Bunyan trees may also fit this category. He cannot directly harm Jacob, his brother. Candidates. | Normal human weaknesses (was killed by being shot and kicked off a cliff)
