Overview[edit]
Overview

Beelzebub is a character that likes to apply his safe ranged pressure at the long and mid range to make his opponent move around which he can then punish them for doing. Because of slow walk and dash speed he has to rely on his unique movement options, teleport and divekick, to navigate the screen. His win condition is forcing the opponent to respect his ranged pressure game enough to where he can push them into the corner and fish for combos or just chip them with his excellent specials and tools.


"Do you not realize your own frailty?"
Lore:One of the Astrals who invaded the Sky Realm thousands of years ago, long before the War broke out. He was sealed away in Pandemonium until the fallen angel Belial released him from his forced slumber. Obsessed with becoming the supreme being, he wields a substance capable of slaying immortals—chaos matter. And at his beck and call is Avatar, the manifestation of destruction. Sky Realm, Astral Realm, Crimson Horizon—his hands will mold these realms into one so that he may stand above all in creation.

GBVS Beelzebub Icon.png Beelzebub is a versatile hybrid zoning/pressure-based character who forces mistakes out of the opponent with his special attacks and unique movement.
Pros Cons
  • Space Control: f.M and 2M along with 214L allow Bubs to control lots of space with ease.
  • Versatile Fireball: 236X fireballs are very versatile, with the medium version forcing a superjump and all versions being chargeable to be plus on block make them great options in pressure and at a range.
  • Air Approach: j.214X is an anti-anti-air divekick that can be plus on block if spaced well. j.U hits at an obnoxious angle and can be canceled into j.214X for even more pressure.
  • Quality Specials: The grounded version of 214X is also useful, 214L causes a knockdown at any range, can combo from his main pokes, is safe on block and does a good amount of chip, while 214M hits low and wallbounces on counterhit.
  • Slippery: Has an invincible reversal that covers crossup and a teleport, allowing him to slip out of pressure and the corner with relative ease.
  • Invincible Command Grab: Oppressive command grab which beats mash and can be used as a reversal when he has meter.
  • Risky Options: Black hole and teleport are extremely risky callout options.
  • Special Overlap: 214X and j.214X are tied to the same cooldown, making it too valuable to be spent lightly.
  • Slow Reversal: His DP has poor startup allowing other characters to recover fast enough to block it in a lot of cases.
  • Damage: One of his main juggle tools (22X) takes up a hit of combo count while only doing 100 damage. This results in lower average damage in corner combos.

[edit]

  • has 3 points it can hit. point blank 10 frame startup, midrange 12 frame startup, and the most common range it will be hit or blocked will be 14 frame startup. because of this more often than not it will be -12 on block and -8 on hit
  • Very good reward on counter hit thanks to 22H.
  • Surprisingly good anti air from afar.
  • Slow startup and somewhat short hitbox against grounded opponents make it a bad poke and whiff punish tool.

[edit]

Beelzebub's projectile. All versions can be charged and made plus, making it a cornerstone in Bubs' ground pressure game. Having access to plus frames at a distance also helps his poking game, as he can continue pressure with M buttons and f.H while fishing for counterhits.

  • L version fires 1 feather and can be charged to make it hit twice.
  • M version fires 7 feathers stacked vertically dealing 2 hits, can partially charge for 3 hits and fully charge for 5 hits.
  • H version fires 1 feather dealing 1 hit then 7 feathers stacked vertically dealing 2 hits, can partially charge for 5 hits, and fully charge for 8 hits.

[edit]

Bubs' invincible reversal. Hits all around him but doesn't have much horizontal range in front of him. Has poor speed, smaller hitbox than visual, and very punishable. The field can hit opponents jumping over him, and if it does, it throws the opponent over and in front of him.

  • L version: faster version.
  • M version: delayed version.
  • H version: as fast as the L version and air unblockable which makes it a guaranteed anti-air depending on the opponent's character. Can lead to a corner safejump if you hit the opponent high enough with it.

[edit]

Bubs' combo filler special. Good to space with and provides a knockdown anywhere.

  • L version: hits in front of Bubs, great for ending combos and controlling space, chips a surprising amount of health and a good pressure ender since it is safe. Can be rolled through if the opponent is far enough. as well if you 5U after and they backtech or don't tech you are plus.
  • M version: slower than L, hits low and wall bounces on counterhit in the corner making it a frame trap to be respected. Safe on block.
  • H version: fastest 214X, low and wall bounces on regular hit in the corner. Safe on block.

[edit]

GRAVITY ORB. Pulls grounded opponents towards Bubs, and plus if spaced. Active frames also destroy projectiles, but has to be used preemptively because of its slow startup. Also pulls in aerial opponents in hitstun, so it's good for juggles. This move goes on cooldown for non-EX and EX moves for a period of time as well even if you use the technical inputs. Has about an 5 second cooldown for regular, non-EX input. and a 12 second cooldown for EX

  • L version hits right in front of Bubs and pull from about 1/3 of the screen.
  • M version pulls from about 2/3 of the screen.
  • H version has the same speed as L version and same range as the M version, but is always plus on block.

Be aware that if the grounded opponent happens to have any hitbox active, they can hit you with it as you reel them in. Overall a bad special to throw out, but can turn the tides as a hard callout. Mainly used in combos.

[edit]

Mid-hitting divekick. Cooldown is also tied to ground 214X.

  • L version: somewhat fast but reactable, has to be blocked at knee level to be +.
  • M version: very slow and almost always +, used to bait 2H anti-airs.
  • H version: very fast, and almost always +, very solid neutral and combo tool used for whiff punishing and skipping neutral in general. On hit, this dive is automatically Followed with a launching wing slice which can combo into 236236H for big damage in the corner. Can help push opponents into the corner from mid-field.
