Batroc possesses no superhuman powers whatsoever. However, and despite his flamboyant persona, he is widely considered one of the best unarmed fighters in the entire world. He is a former member of the foreign legion, so he is trained in military tactics, weapons usage and military fighting techniques. He is also an accomplished thief and mercenary.
