Overview

Overview

Avatar Belial consumes his own HP to unleash powerful skills. Time it right, and he'll take his opponents to the very limits of debauchery. On the other hand, his defenses are lacking, making him a feast-or-famine style pick.
"I'm gonna rip out your beating heart!"
Lore:After wresting the Versus Core from Beelzebub's grasp, Belial plunged it into his own body, transforming into Avatar Belial. He now wields the powers of a deity, but he is and will always be set on one thing: the resurrection of Lucilius. But for a fallen angel, the taste of unlimited power is both more exhilarating and dangerous than any wine. Now that Belial has been intoxicated with destructive impulse, there may be nothing that can stop him from obliterating the skies—not even the decay of his own body.

Pros Cons
  • Comeback Factor: Avatar Belial's usage of his own health becomes a non-factor when he comes close to death. He gets all his strongest options with the benefits of low cooldowns and no downsides because hell, he's about to die anyway.
  • Projectiles Galore: Avatar Belial can cover the screen with different types of projectiles, making approaching him difficult. He can also convert them into knockdowns with his Pact follow-ups.
  • Momentum: Pact's Stomp always gives Avatar Belial a hard knockdown, letting him get his game started no matter what special move connected at the cost of some health.
  • Forced Respect: Pact's Kick follow-up is invincible and converts into great damage on counter hit, allowing Avatar Belial to discourage mashing or approaching after his ranged options.
  • Health Management: With only 9K hit-points and heavy skills costing 500 hit-points each, Avatar Belial must manage his health carefully, or else he can get KO'd easily.

  • Usable after any special move connects except for Blind Devotion.
  • Costs 500 health upon use.

Avatar Belial's unique special move follow-ups. They both have different uses but complement his gameplan equally well.


5U Follow-Up
  • Teleports in front of the opponent.
  • Launches upwards.
  • Invincible during startup and active frames.

While Belial can't get a combo from this follow-up normally, it links into f.M on counterhit. The invincibility allows him to call out mashing and force respect after his special moves, but the health cost also adds to the potential punish if it is blocked. Better to threaten with than to use in most cases.


8U Follow-Up
  • Teleports above the opponent and stomps down.
  • Forces a hard knockdown on hit.

Avatar Belial's other follow-up makes for an excellent combo ender. It will always give a hard knockdown on hit, allowing for consistent setplay.

L Version
  • Air blockable and quite unsafe.

Pray this counterhits, otherwise it's gonna hurt Belial a lot.


M Version
  • First hit is air unblockable.

Pretty good last-minute anti-air, but generally outclassed in reward by his 2H.


H Version
  • Entirely air unblockable.
  • Costs 500 health upon use.

High damage and air unblockable throughout make this Belial's most consistent anti-air. It does not come cheap though, as it costs health and is very unsafe on block.

Carnal Passion

Belial's rekka series. The follow-ups are all the same and combo into Pact enders.


L Starter
  • Fast and combos from 2M.

Standard combo ender special. Provides a good enough knockdown, but really shines in its corner carry.


M Starter
  • Much larger range at the cost of speed.
  • Low crushes.

While this version generally cannot be combo'd into without a counter hit, its extended range and low crush make it a better neutral tool. Avatar Belial can also catch people trying to punish it with Pact.


H Starter
  • Causes follow-up 2 to wallbounce.
  • Costs 500 health upon use.

Corner combo launcher. It's generally a better idea to use other specials first but Belial can still get basic knockdowns without this special using 623M or 623H.
