Buggy has very high toughness, as he survived the blast of a Muggy Bullet redirected at him, with hardly any resulting injuries (although his Devil Fruit might have helped him somewhat), while a Muggy Bullet seriously damaged the Minotaurus, one of the Demon Guards at Impel Down. He also possesses great physical strength, as he was able to lift and strangle one of his subordinates single-handedly, pick up a Blugori easily and throw it to the ground (although he got up again with minimal injury), and hold the weight of both Luffy and Jinbe while floating his upper body (although this can be attributed to his Devil Fruit ability).
