Nuova Shenron's abilities are all heat based. He can raise his temperature to more than 6000 degrees Celsius, effectively making him hotter than the surface of the Sun
- Ki Blast: The most basic form of energy wave. Nova Shenron is capable of firing fire blasts from his palms, just as casually as many other fighters can shoot Ki Blasts.
- Flight: The ability to fly with his wings.
- Nova Star: A huge ball of fire shot at the opponent. This move is used on Goku to melt the ice from Eis Shenron's Ice Ray.
- Nova Death Ray: The "Lens" version of "Nova Star". Nuova forms a lens that can absorb heat from the sun in front of his hands, and then shoots a lethal ray of fire at the opponent. Because this attack gets it power from the sun, it does not run out of energy. While in his First Form, Nuova used this attack twice against Goku. He also used a lower powered version of this attack to SSJ4 Vegeta's face as a diversion.
- Burning Tornado: One of Nuova Shenron's Blast 2 in Budokai Tenkaichi 3.
- Sun Gun Attack: Nuova Shenron hides in a fireball and shoots fire kiblasts from within it. This attack is not named in the Japanese anime.
- Blaster Meteor: Nuova Shenron's Ultimate Blast in Budokai Tenkaichi 3.
- Nova Sphere: Nuova Shenron's ultimate attack. He grabs his opponent, then encases both himself and the opponent in a fireball. The fireball will explode if any volatile attacks are made, with a powerful explosion that can even kill Omega Shenron. Nuova Shenron himself will not be harmed by the explosion.
- Explosive Wave: Nuova Shenron can raise the temperature to more than 6000 degrees Celsius, thus creating a Heat Armor around him. He envelops himself in this high temperature to block attacks and burn his opponents at the same time.
- Instantaneous Transmission: Nuova Shenron uses this technique in Budokai Tenkaichi 3.
