Powers are a replacement for Special Agents introduced in Bloons TD6 and returning in Bloons Adventure Time TD. They all cost Monkey Money (or Coins in BATTD), but can't be used in CHIMPS mode at all. In BATTD, there is no mode in which Powers are restricted.
In Bloons Adventure Time TD, Powers are special powerups that can be activated in each game. You can only have at most 8 different types of Powers of your choice equipped when playing on a map. Placeable Powers (such as Hotdog Knights) have a limit of 10, while all ability-type Powers (such as Hugsplosion) have a specific cooldown before being able to be used again. Some Powers (such as Party Time) can only be used once per game, though all of which last for the entire duration of the level, unless consumed such as the case of life-restore Powers.
In Bloons TD Battles Mobile, Powers are powerups that can be activated in each game. Originally, there were three categories of Powers: Track Powers, Tower Powers, and Bloon Powers. In Version 6.0, many more Powers have been released for each category. New Powers can be unlocked for XP Points of a respective Power category, along with Universal XP for any Power category. In Version 6.2, Eco Powers are released as a fourth Power that can be exchanged for any of the other three Powers categories. XP Points can be gained for any Power category that are equipped into battle. Version 6.3 adds Sabo Powers as a fifth Power, again exchangeable as part of three-power loadout.

Bloons TD Battles MobileEdit
Added in Version 6.0, Powers have been released. Every time the player wins (or loses a game without surrendering or force-quitting), they gain XP for each of three unique categories of Powers in equal amounts split among them. The categories of the Powers include: Monkey Boost, Bloon Boost, and Red Hot Spikes.
Version 6.2 introduced a fourth category of Powers called Eco Powers. Separate from the other three, it has its own XP counter with the full use of Universal XP. Swapping a Track, Tower or Bloon power will give you XP for the Eco Power instead after a match is over, as well as changing and enhancing the customization possibilities of your Powers loadout.
Version 6.3 introduced a fifth category of Powers called Sabotage Powers. Again, separate from all other current powers, it has its own XP counter with the full use of Universal XP. Again, similar rules apply when gaining XP for Sabotage Powers.
Each category of Powers has unlockable variants that can be swapped out once unlocked. They all have certain paths leading towards them. However, you can only have powers from three different categories in your loadout.

|Eco Boost||N/A||0 XP/ Unlocked by default||Boost your income by 6x the round number. Three uses.||Gives 6 income multiplied by the round number you are currently at. For example, if you are at Round 10, your power will grant +$60 income|
|Salted Wounds||Path 1, Tier 1||500 XP||Boost income by $10 per life lost by opponent for 25 seconds. Three uses, max $150 eco per use.||Every time a bloon leaks on your opponent's side, you get 10 income, and due to the gain cap, your opponent has to leak at most 15 Red bloons, or equivalent, to gain the max income amount. This value is multiplied by the leaked bloon's RBE, so, for instance, if your opponent leaks a Pink, you get 50 income per use; for a Zebra/Lead, you'll only gain 150 income per use.|
|Cash Injection||Path 1, Tier 2||2500 XP, Salted Wounds||Instant cash equal to $50 x round number. Three uses.||Gives $50 cash multiplied by the round number you are currently at, up to a maximum of $1000. For example, if you are at Round 8, your power will grant +$400 cash.

You can stack both Rubber to Gold and Bounty in Cards to gain $4 cash per bloon popped, but the duration depends on the power you've activated.|
|Budget Bloons||Path 1, Tier 4||7500 XP, Rubber to Gold||Reduces cost of sending Boons by 50% and reduces negative eco penalty by 50% for 15 seconds. Three uses.||Combined with the Camo Regrow Efficiency power, the cost of Camo and Regen, or combined, rushes can become dealier and cheaper. Negative eco penalty only applies to Fast Cooldown Ceramics and MOAB Class bloon sends.|
|Copy Eco||Path 2, Tier 1||500 XP||Replaces your income with your opponent's, to a maximum of $700. Three uses.||Similar to the Tax power in Card Battles, except your income value is changed with your opponent's. However, if your opponent has over 700 income, you'll only get the max cap of 700 eco on your side, making it a bad power in late game, unless you have very low income from sending MOAB rushes.|
|Improved Eco Boost||Path 2, Tier 2||2500 XP, Copy Eco||Boost your income by 8x the round number. Three uses.||Effect is similar to Eco Boost but gives more cash.|
|Eco Amplifier||Path 2, Tier 3||5000 XP, Improved Eco Boost||Next income earned is tripled. Three uses.||Using this power will give you cash equal to three times your current income value.|

|Genetically Enhanced Crops||Path 3, Tier 3||5000 XP, Fertile Soil||All Farms instantly generate two rounds worth of income. One use.||Similar to the Rainstorm ability in Bloons Monkey City Flash, all Banana Farms on the field generate an extra pack of bananas depending on their upgrade without affecting the main pack they generate.|
|Dual Eco Boost||Path 3, Tier 4||7500 XP, Genetically Enhanced Crops||All Farms earn 25% more for three rounds, and income boosted by 5x the round number. Three uses.||Effect is similar to Eco Boost and Better Soil combined, except they're slightly weaker. Farm cash multiplier does not stack with another Dual Eco Boost but you still gain income.|
|Name||Upgrade Type||Prerequisites||Description||Other notes|
|Slow||N/A||Unlocked by default||Opponent's Towers attack 15% slower for 8 seconds. Three uses.||This power acts in similar fashion to the Monkey Chill power card from Card Battles, but has a weaker effect on the opponent's towers.|
|Long Slow||Path 1, Tier 1||500 XP||Opponent's Towers attack 15% slower for 12 seconds. Three uses.||Similar to Slow, but adds 4 more seconds to its duration.|
|Extra Slow||Path 1, Tier 2||2500 XP, Long Slow||Opponent's Towers attack 25% slower for 8 seconds. Three uses.||Similar to Slow, but adds an extra 10% slow to opponent's towers.|
|Tower Blindness||Path 1, Tier 3||5000 XP, Extra Slow||Reduces opponent's Tower's attacking range by 66% for 15 seconds. Three uses.||This power not only reduces range of towers. It also reduces the lifespan and travel distance of all their projectiles by 66%. Doesn't affect Sniper Monkeys, Mortar Monkeys or Spike Factories.|
|Cripple||Path 1, Tier 4||7500 XP, Tower Blindness||Reduces pierce of all opponent's Towers by 50%, attack speed by 25% and range by 25% for 8 seconds. Two uses.||Similar to Extra Slow, but also halves the tower's total pierce and reduces its range, projectile lifespan and travel distance by 25%. The pierce reduction effect doesn't affect 1 pierce towers, explosives, Ice Monkey (excluding Ice Shards), Ray of Doom or Temples.|
|Sell Freeze||Path 2, Tier 1||500 XP||Opponent cannot sell any towers for 20 seconds. Three uses.||A "Can't Sell" message will display on the sell button, similar to Portable Lake or Pontoon when you have at least a tower on top of them.|
|Eco Nerf||Path 2, Tier 2||2500 XP, Sell Freeze||Opponent gets 50% income from all sources including selling for 16 seconds. Two uses.||This power affects everything that gives cash, from Banana Farms and Supply Drop Snipers, to gaining income from Bloon sends or Eco Powers. Selling towers also gives 40% of their original price instead of the normal 80%.|
|Eco Choke||Path 2, Tier 3||5000 XP, Eco Nerf||Opponent gets no income from any source except selling and Battle Powers for 14 seconds. Two uses.||Anything that gives you extra cash, such as Banana Farms or your current income cap will give you 0 cash. However, you can get cash from the Cash Injection or Rubber to Gold powers for said duration.|
|Price Gouge||Path 2, Tier 4||7500 XP, Eco Choke||Opponent's towers and upgrades cost 50% more for 20 seconds. Three uses.||Towers such as Dart Monkeys will be tougher to get for defense. For towers affected by the power that don't have their last digit a multiple of 5, however will round them to the closest multiple of 5(1 and 2 round to 0; 3, 4, 6 and 7 will round to 5; and 8 and 9 round to 10).|
|Deactivated Abilities||Path 3, Tier 1||500 XP||Opponent can't use any Activated Abilities for 20 seconds. Three uses.||Abilities such as Blade Maelstrom or Ground Zero will not be available to use for the duration and instead must rely on the towers' 'raw' popping power to clear any rushes sent at them|
|Knock Out||Path 3, Tier 2||2500 XP, Deactivated Abilities||Choose one opponent tower to disable for 8 seconds. Three uses.||This power is compared to Blastapopoulos' attacks in BTD5 or Bloons Monkey City; a chosen tower will be immobilized and you cannot sell said tower.|
|Team Tower Stun||Path 3, Tier 3||5000 XP, Knock Out||Stuns all opponent towers for 3 seconds. Two uses.||Similar to Knock Out, but immobilizes every on-screen and newly placed tower. You can't sell and rebuy anything to counter it.|
