His strength, speed, agility, reflexes and durability are all at peak levels for a man his age, height and weight. Ethan has shown himself capable of incredible physical feats such as holding his breath for long periods, withstanding intense physical pain and torture, jumping from great heights and between buildings, withstanding extended altercations and recovering quickly, clinging to the side of an airplane in flight, climbing up the side of a mountain with no equipment and running at incredible speeds for long periods without tiring. Ethan keeps himself in shape in between missions through an intense work out regime as well as hobbies like rock climbing. *'''Master Spy''': The characteristics evolve throughout the series. In the first movie, Hunt is a master of disguises, stealth, and espionage tactics. As the series progresses, however, Hunt abandons many of his stealth tactics in favor of force. Ethan reused his mastery of stealth and surprise while battling Kurt Hendricks. *'''Master Martial Artist''': According to Ethan's profile, he has been taught the Brazilian martial arts of Capoeira. He shows limited fighting ability, kicking a CIA employee while stealing the NOC list, but he is later knocked out in a confrontation by the elderly, but more experienced Jim Phelps. He uses various kicks, holds and flips during attacks on terrorist personnel during the next two movies. In the second installment, we see him using techniques inspired by Capoeira, which fits with his profile from the first movie. He also uses Aikido and Jujutsu techniques during his fight with Ambrose. In the third installment, while still using some Capoeira, he also utilizes techniques from the Keysi fighting method, and in a training scene with Lindsey Farris, we see him teaching her the Filipino martial arts of Eskrima. He displays several extremely complex techniques in the fourth movie, including a selection of Capoeira and Taekwondo moves. During his prison escape, he mainly utilizes Karate and judo moves, and resorts to combined Capoeira, ninjutsu, taekwondo and Karate moves and strategies. During the sixth movie, he is shown to be using techniques from the Keysi Fighting Method, as well as techniques from Eskrima and Krav Maga. *'''High-level Intellect: '''Ethan is very intelligent and has shown himself to be very skilled in espionage, infiltration, counter intelligence and is skilled at adjusting his plans to account for changes as well as knowing how to plan well in advance and improvising new plans when necessary.

One of his favorite measures is to let those he is targeting think they have him beaten and enact counter measures that he was relying on for his own plans to succeed. *'''Expert Marksman''': Ethan is highly skilled in the use of firearms. He shot and killed Sean Ambrose and Saif and later draws on and kills multiple targets within seconds.
