** In the ''ComicBook/ADeathInTheFamily'' storyline, Shiva was one of the possible candidates for [[Comicbook/RedHoodAndTheOutlaws Jason Todd's]] real mother, him having found her name in an address book of his fathers'. When they subdued her, they asked her if she had ever born children. Amused, Shiva sarcastically told them that she had dropped litters all over the globe, but a shot of a truth serum made her say that she hadn't. This was changed with the reveal that she was Cassandra Cain's mother. However, since it was a fairly minor moment, it's just as likely that this was a simple continuity mistake instead of an intentional retcon.

* FadSuper: She was created to cash in on the 1970s Creator/BruceLee Kung-Fu craze. She debuted within the pages of ''Richard Dragon'', but her popularity outlasted that series. She's still a martial arts master, but no longer looks like a 1970s DragonLady.

After DC's 2011 reboot into the ''Comicbook/{{New 52}}'', there is little known about Shiva's status in the new continuity, other than a brief appearance opposite Nightwing.

** In her original appearances, she trained in martial arts to fight Richard Dragon and avenge her sister (Richard was framed for her death). PostCrisis, this was changed by saying that David Cain, a member of Ra's Al Ghul's League Of Assassins, killed her sister.

Lady Shiva is best known for her [[TheDreaded reputation]] as [[TheAce the single greatest martial artist]] in the DCUniverse, in terms of pure skill. Other masters, such as Franchise/{{Batman}}, {{Nightwing}}, [[Comicbook/BirdsOfPrey Black Canary]], and others, are usually depicted as being inferior to her on equal terms. But while Shiva craves a [[LetsFightLikeGentlemen fair fight]] against a WorthyOpponent, most [[RoguesGalleryTransplant crimefighters encounter her]] as an obstacle hired by the current ArcVillain, whereupon they have to [[OutsideTheBoxTactic figure out a way to deal with her]] without being lured into a [[CombatPragmatist fair duel]]. Despite her abilities, she [[TheWorfEffect has been defeated on several occasions by numerous characters]], but almost always with [[WorfHadTheFlu some kind of Hand Wave to explain it]].

Though she began as the ArchNemesis of the aforementioned Richard Dragon, she is [[EnsembleDarkhorse FAR more famous than he ever became]], and thus is more known as the antagonist of Franchise/{{Batman}}, [[Comicbook/RobinSeries Tim Drake]], [[Comicbook/{{Batgirl 2000}} Cassandra Cain]], and the Comicbook/BirdsOfPrey. She's developed into something of a NobleDemon, showing VillainRespect to characters whom she thinks may be able to [[SuperiorSuccessor succeed her as the top fighter]] in the DCU. She's usually willing to train anyone (hero and villain alike) on the condition that a year or so later, they hone their skills and face her in a fair DuelToTheDeath.
