Powers and Abilities
Damon has all the standard capabilities and powers of a non-original vampire. In addition, Damon has proven his skills as a combatant who can easily take down his foes. Given that Damon is nearly 170 years older, he’s a powerful and old vampire able to survive in any condition.
In terms of vampire years, Damon is a relatively young vampire that has appeared in the show, along with his brother Stefan. Damon’s first advantage (being more robust and quicker) over Stefan was due to the fact that he was older and regularly drinking human blood.
Because of this, Damon is physically strong enough to beat younger vampires; however, Damon has proven that he is able to stand up to vampires who are older than him from time to time. This is partly due to the determination.
Although he is still not as good as the vampires of more senior age such as Katherine Pierce, Pearl and Annabelle Zhu and the Originals to mention just a few. But, due to his intelligence and ability, he’s been proven to be able to kill vampires with surprises, such as combating the vampire of the past, Elijah Mikaelson with his brother’s assistance and then dazzling Kol by using his speed.
