Bureaucrats can change an account's user level. Their first and foremost task is making people into administrators (when approved), but they also set (and, when necessary, revoke) bot flags. Bureaucrats also used to be able to change an account's username, but that's now handled centrally for all Wikimedia Foundation sites. And they do not have access to the CheckUser tool.
