As an immortal demon, Rodin has the abilities of superhuman strength, some level of invulnerability, dark pyrokinesis, levitation, and the ability to open portals to the deepest depths of Inferno. As an angel, his abilities are similar to Father Balder's, however they greatly surpass them. He is immune to Witch Time (and presumably Light Speed), can summon meteors and streams of energy, and seems to be able to perform his own version of a Wicked Weave, summoning forth huge hands that attack the player from other ends of the arena. In addition to those attacks, he also has the most powerful attack in the game. He will start using the grip attack when his hit point is about half full. If caught, Bayonetta's hit point will be reduce to 0 instantly leaving 1 more hit before being defeated.
