Shantza is a small, chubby blue alien creature. He has red circles on his cheeks and body, and wears some rings on his feet. He has three horns on his head, and has some holes on his back that allow him to float through the air.
Nothing is known about Shantza's personality. He is a quiet fellow who hardly reacts to anything, as Nink crushing the ground and making float in the air for a few seconds hardly annoyed him. However, he smiled when he was sent out of the ring by Viara, as he later came back floating with the holes on his back.
He reacted with fear seeing the first fight between Jiren and Goku.

When Kale fired a Blaster Meteor in her Legendary Super Saiyan form, Shantza was seen jumping out of the way of the attack alongside Monna, Obuni, and The Preecho. He fought Viara, and was almost thrown out of the arena, however, Shantza reveals that he can naturally fly and saves himself. He then flies away from Viara.
After Gamisaras got knocked out, Shantza is instructed to use his illusion technique. However, Piccolo is easily able to find and blast Shantza out of the ring. Upon being scolded by Quitela about dodging the attack, but Shantza notes that he could not do that. He was later erased along with the rest of Team Universe 4 after their defeat.

In the anime, Shantza has the ability to create an energy field that produces convincing illusions, even able to replicate the voices of people. Outside of that, Shantza is weak, as he was hiding behind a rock after creating the illusions, and a single uncharged Ki Blast from Piccolo was able to knock him out of the arena, and admitted he would not have been able to dodge the attack.
In the manga, Shantza is able to stop himself from being launched off the ring by Legendary Super Saiyan Kale's explosive wave - while the likes of Zirloin, Shosa and Maji Kayo are eliminated by the attack.
