Biography

Before joining the Sector Rangers, Nataz was a ranking police officer on his homeworld.

The gangster Jabba Desilijic Tiure set into motion a chain of events that resulted in Dyzz being expelled from the Sector Rangers. In turn, he decided to lay low and relocated to the Corellian Sector of the nearby moon, Nar Shaddaa. There, Spurch and he turned their military talents towards bounty hunting.

Shortly before the Battle of Yavin, a high-ranking officer of the Galactic Empire enlisted the bounty hunters’ services to assassinate a corrupt Imperial spice inspector on Nar Shaddaa. They knew the target in question personally, and have brokered deals with him in the past. However, a contract was a contract. They cornered the inspector on Level 88 and dropped him with several quick blaster shots.

Another bounty hunter known as Gorm the Dissolver arrived in the Corellian Sector looking for Dyyz and Spurch. Jabba the Hutt had put out a contract on the two and wanted them eliminated. Gorm caught the bounty hunters dead in his sights, but as luck would have it, an eager young Rodian named Greedo fired a blaster shot into Gorm’s back disabling him. Dyyz and Spurch were grateful to the enthusiastic mercenary and Spurch offered to train him in the art of bounty hunting.

Dyyz later accompanied Spurch and Greedo to Tatooine to settle accounts with Jabba the Hutt. Shortly afterward, Dyyz left Tatooine on his own accord, hitching a ride with fellow hunters Zuckuss and 4-LOM, however his activities since that time has never been revealed.

Physical appearance

Presumably Human, Dyyz Nataz' true physical appearance is unknown. He wore an ancient set of brown, corroded, Ithullan armor, likely stolen from a museum, as the Ithullans were all but extinct by Dyyz' time. Accompanying the armor, was a large bell-shaped durasteel helmet, coated with rust. The red photoreceptors placed within the helmet's visor gave Dyyz a fearsome countenance that intimidated anyone unlucky enough to fall before his path.

Behind the scenes

  • The character of Dyyz Nataz was created by comic book writer, Tom Veitch.

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

Megadeath is a Decepticon in the Generation One continuity family.
Peace sells...but who's buying?

Megadeath is, even by Decepticon standards, quite mad. Rather than fighting for territory, Megadeath wants to sterilize whole regions of Cybertron with neutron bombs, then moves in to occupy them. This callous disregard for life horrifies even Decepticon High Command, who forbade the action and scuttled his chances of moving up in the ranks.

Megadeath has quietly recruited an elite cadre of troopers, including Thunderwing. He has cultivated and shaped these young Decepticons in his own image, to be loyal only to him on the day he may publicly challenge Megatron.

A master of psychological torture, Megadeath denies his victims respite or escape until they invariably bend to his will. He instills feelings of need, fear, helplessness and despair, then makes his victims reinforce those feelings via their own choices.

Megadeath's three closely-set eyes can fight powerful laser beams, and he has concussion cannons on each forearm. His is also equipped with missile launchers. He transforms into a bombing aircraft equipped for high-altitude observation. To power his exorbitantly energy-consumptive primary weapons, there is a nuclear power core burning behind plexiplastic inside his chest.

Long association has led Thunderwing to label Megadeath's mastery of psychological torture an 'unhealthy obsession.' Megadeath's need to prove he has bigger ball-bearings than the next 'bot will eventually get them chopped off.

Fiction

Marvel Comics UK continuity

Megadeath planned to go forward with his nuke-and-colonize plan even after High Command's veto, planting six neutron bombs throughout the Stanix region and making arrangements to temporarily evacuate his troops for the detonation.

(It's worth noting that neutron bombs, as defined by Earth science, are more lethal to organic life, and less damaging to technology, than "conventional" nuclear weapons. They also produce less "bang" for the same production cost. Why Megadeath chose to use them against purely technological targets is thus unclear.)

The arrival of a group of Autobots known as the Magnificent Six threatened to expose Megadeath's scheme. He ordered his elite cadre, led by Thunderwing to bombard Yuss, the town where they were hiding, eventually forcing the residents to turn the Autobots over.

Megadeath supervised the torture of the six, breaking them so that when he finally killed one of their number, the others could not lift a hand to stop him. He then forced the Autobots to search for the town's residents (whom he has concealed nearby) before the neutron bombs exploded.

Circling above Yuss, Megadeath did not see the Autobots searching frantically as time tic'd down. Instead- they seemed to have disappeared! Landing to investigate, he was immediately attacked by the Autobots, who had hidden themselves in order to draw him out. The Autobots crippled his right leg, rendering him unable to transform and trapping him at the epicenter, but Megadeath still refused to tell them the townspeople's location. Eventually, the Autobots were forced to leave him, and them, behind as the neutronic bombs exploded. The Decepticons viewed this whole affair and Megadeath himself as an embarrassment even four million years later.


Megadeath, unexpectedly survived the neutron bombs, and the ensuing environemntal catastrophe that turned Stanix into the Acid Wastes. The Yuss residents also survived, though horribly mutated by the explosion. They lived under his rule deep in the Acid Wastes for four million years...


In 1991, Optimus Prime sent the five survivors (and Silverbolt) back to Stanix on an unrelated mission. Megadeath captured them, intending to torture them once again. Instead, they overcame their collective guilt and heroically rose up to beat Megadeath to death with their bare hands.

Megadeath breached the plexiplastic plate protecting his reactor rather than be taken into custody and put on trial for crimes against the Transformer race. The Magnificent Six!
