Shiv Katall is reputed to be the galaxy's most ruthless bounty hunter, often hired by the Evil Emperor Zurg to chase down rogue minions.
Shiv normally wears blue and black body armor and a helmet which hides every inch of his skin. He wears a wrist mounted device which can fire several different weapons, such as immobilizer discs, energy nets and an adhesive spitter. He also uses standard weapons such as lasers and a jet pack for flight.
Shiv Katall is the galaxy's greatest bounty hunter, and the man Evil Emperor Zurg calls in to eliminate a henchman whenever one decides to escape to the other side. He was even rumored to be the man responsible for cutting off Commander Nebula's leg which only increased his notoriety within the criminal underworld. However, it was revealed that Shiv is none other than Buzz Lightyear, who inherited the Shiv Katall identity from Commander Nebula, and uses it to secretly shuttle defecting henchmen back to Star Command, while fooling Zurg into believing the target was killed.
For a time, the Evil Buzz Lightyear took the identity of Shiv Katall.
Given that the Shiv Katall persona has been worn by three individuals, his personality varied. However, what they all have in common is that Shiv, as Crumford put it, was the "toughest, meanest guy in the Galaxy.".
When Buzz donned the identity, Shiv was a stoic individual with a menacing presence. He was not intimidated by the Space Rangers' presence, easily pegging them as rookies. He has also shown to be merciful toward them, sparing their lives rather than executing them.
When Nebula became Shiv, he is more aggressive compared to Buzz's. Nebula's Shiv was pragmatic, willing to take further actions to ensure the mission's success, if only to gain more money from Zurg.
When the Evil Buzz took the identity, Shiv is far more callous in his actions, lacking the merciful nature of Buzz's Shiv. He isn't above mocking his opponent and was quite arrogant, making him vulnerable to surprise attacks.
Shiv possessed a fit and strong physical build, allowing him to overpower most enemies or perform a series of acrobatic moves to narrowly avoid attacks. He is also adaptable in every situation, constantly changing tactics to keep his opponents guessing and take them down. Of course, since Buzz was donning Shiv, he obviously knew his team's strengths and weaknesses.
He is equipped with high-tech gauntlets that fired various armaments including eight barrel rotary laser blasters, an adhesive that blocks the Space Rangers' wrist mounted lasers, immobilizer discs to render any machines paralyzed and laser net launchers. His nets can be changed into shackles after Shiv pressed buttons on his chest armor. He also wielded a large sword that is sharp enough to cut through objects cleanly and slingshots which he threw to ensnare targets. He also possessed rocket boots allowing him flight capabilities.
Whether this was part of Shiv's armaments or were added in by the Evil Buzz, Shiv also possessed a wrist mounted laser on his left gauntlet that can also fire a gelatinous prison, a jet pack (similar to Star Command ones but blue and black) and suction cups to climb up walls. He has a panel on his gauntlet that allowed him to call for his ship, which matches the color of his suit.
Because of his sheer power, skills and incredible weaponry, Shiv is regarded as the best bounty hunter in the Galaxy.
