Powers and a
Caliburn has a sharp cutting edge that allows him to cut through even rock, though with some effort. Over time in Misty Lake, his blade grew blunt, but he regained its edge thanks to the Blacksmith. As a sacred sword, Caliburn possess magical properties, though the full range of them are unclear. He can dispel the immortality granted by the scabbard of Excalibur when combined with the other sacred swords and activate the barrier stones. He is also capable of levitation, allowing him to move around on his own.
Caliburn possesses extensive knowledge in the art of swordsmanship. He is also skilled at teaching swordsmanship, as he was able to teach Sonic enough skills to go head-to-head with the Knights of the Round Table, who are all masters in swordplay, in a manner of days.
