Former primarch of cunning with millennia of manipulative streak. Belial is a DLC character available in Season Pass 2, whose play-style is to trick the opponents with deceptive attacks, his Unique counter move and command grab, constantly forcing opponent into guessing game. Although versatile in both ranged or up-close, his mid-range game can be underwhelming due to most other characters having the tools that out-range his normal attacks. Unpredictability is key to succeeding as Belial.

|Lore:||Belial is a fallen angel—and one of the first primal beasts ever brought into being. He is the manifestation of cunning, earning him the sobriquet "Serpent." He plays dirty and is irreverent, and his mind swims in the gutter. The only man he respects is his own creator, Lucilius, to whom he has given the pet name "Cilius." But recently, the Singularities Gran and Djeeta have managed to catch Belial's eye. Toying with them gives him a visceral thrill. He loves nothing more than to sow chaos with Exia, then watch Gran or Djeeta struggle to restore order.|

Belial is a versatile pressure-based character who tricks the opponent with ambiguous special attacks.
- Ambiguous Pressure: Many special attacks has ambiguous startup animation or delayed active frames, great for messing with opponent's decision-making. Excellent at controlling the pace of the match.
- Keepout Fireball: Goetia and its follow-ups keeps rushing opponent in check.
- Great Whiff Punishing: With possibly one of the best backdashes in the game and his great f.H, being able to force whiffs and punish accordingly is very feasible to do.
- Slow Run Speed
- Mediocre Normal Range: While the frame data is not terrible, they can be challenged by more specialized characters, requiring him to play rather unorthodox in the midrange.
