Revan was strong in the Force—the most gifted of his time—and eventually, by all accounts, managed to gain exceptional command of the Force. Many of his peers were impressed by his talents and skills. Another powerful Jedi, Meetra Surik, particularly noted that Revan's command of the Force was greater than that of anyone else she had ever met.
Revan is among the few individuals in galactic history, who had significant exposure to both the light and dark sides of the Force, and he proved to be highly skilled in the use of both of these aspects of the Force. Due to these experiences, he was able to develop a perfect understanding of the concept of Unifying Force. During Revan's tenure as a Jedi Master, his command of the Force had reached to such a degree that he could channel both the light and dark sides of the Force simultaneously to perform unique feats. Both as a Sith Lord and as a Jedi, Revan learned a variety of Force abilities to succeed in his plans.
Revan could use the Force to augment his physical strength, speed, and perform various acrobatic feats. Revan had incredible Force sense abilities. With focus, he could sense the presence of another Force-user across the span of the entire Galaxy. He could also use the Force to assist him under challenging situations which involved precise judgements. During his stay on Dantooine, Revan performed Floating Meditation inconjunction with Telekinesis. Revan was adept at using the Force to directly heal his wounds without seeking medical attention. Revan also possessed the ability to resist the effects of poisons and drugs.
Revan was proficient in the application of Telekinesis being able to move heavy objects simultaneously with mere gestures. He could also hurl heavy objects as missiles towards his targets. In addition, he could Push, Grip, Choke, Wound, and Crush his targets with the Force. Revan could also use the Force to create a whirlwind of Force energy to overwhelm his opponents. Furthermore, Revan was adept in the use of Saber Throw technique and used this ability to cut down multiple opponents simultaneously from a distance.
Revan was proficient in the application of Force lightning, and also in the use of defensive techniques to counter it. Revan could use his bare hands to absorb and deflect very powerful Force lightning attacks. Very few Force-users in the galactic history have demonstrated this ability.
Revan possessed the capabilities to influence the physical and mental condition of his opponents. He was capable of using mind tricks on his opponents, and force his will on them. He particularly exploited The One with these abilities. Revan could also steal knowledge from his opponents, and particularly used this ability to probe the mind of Lord Vitiate during his first encounter with him. In addition, Revan could afflict his targets, and replenish his energies by feeding on them. He was particularly immune to the effects of fear. Furthermore, Revan could psychologically manipulate his opponents to use them as tools for his plans.
During his reign as Dark Lord of the Sith, Revan created a Holocron in which he feeded information of many dangerous Sith techniques and rituals, including the deadly Thought bomb. Several millennia later, this holocron was discovered by Darth Bane, who noted that Revan's knowledge of Sith Lore was greater than the entire information contained in the archives of the Sith Academy in Korriban in his time.
Though the full extent of Revan's abilities are unknown; prior to his final duel with Darth Malak, the latter acknowledged that Revan had surpassed his expectations. Revan proved his prodigious combat abilities during his struggle against the forces of Sith stationed on Star Forge. He was able to fight his way through a large number of battle droids, Sith troopers, and Dark Jedi prior to reaching the position of Darth Malak. Even though Darth Malak was well-prepared for combat on the Star Forge—he had grotesquely adapted the Rakatan device to draw energy directly from the chained Jedi captives—he could not stop Revan.
Revan was gifted with Farsight abilities, and commonly experienced Force visions, which guided him in his quests. He could also sense danger in advance.[
