Overview

Overview

Former primarch of cunning with a manipulative streak lasting millenia. Belial is a DLC character available in Season Pass 2, whose play-style is to trick his opponents with deceptive attacks such as his Unique counter move and command grab, constantly forcing his opponent into a guessing game. Although he has options both at range or up-close, his mid-range game can be underwhelming due to most other characters having tools that can challenge his normal attacks. Unpredictability is key to succeeding as Belial.
Playstyle
Belial is a versatile pressure-based character who tricks the opponent with ambiguous special attacks.
Pros Cons
  • 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.
  • Good Offensive Pressure: Without the use of hard committing moves like his command grab, non ex fireball pressure, or his command grab, he has good offensive pressure.
  • Great Fireball: Goetia and its follow-ups keep rushing opponents in check.
  • Great Whiff Punishes: 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.
  • Great Conversions: Can convert off of almost anything.
  • Good Defensive Options: A good variety of options to choose from on defense in the form of DP, 5U, and 2L.
  • Mediocre Normal Range: While their frame data is quite good, his normals can be challenged by more specialized characters, requiring him to play somewhat unorthodox in the midrange.
  • No Low-hitting 2L: His fastest low normal is 2M at 7f.

Normal Moves

c.L

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery On-Block On-Hit Invuln
400 All 5 3 6 +2 +6

Granblue Fantasy Versus c.L. +2 on block, +6 on hit, links into itself, 2L and c.M on regular hit, and 2M on crouching hit.

Level Attribute

c.M

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery On-Block On-Hit Invuln
700 All 6 3 12 0 +4

A standard Granblue c.M, frame traps from c.L and 2L. Due to being 0 on block and 6 frame start up, when pressed again, can crush far light normals when spaced correctly. Good for pressure due to this, but otherwise pretty unremarkable.

Level Attribute

c.H

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery On-Block On-Hit Invuln
1200 All 9 5 19 -5 -1

Mostly combo filler, but can function as an anti-air if opponent is above you.

f.L

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery On-Block On-Hit Invuln
400 All 6 5 12 -4 0

Links from 2L much more consistently than f.M, making it a great way to confirm into 214H from that normal. Somewhat useful as a poke.

Level Attribute

f.M

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery On-Block On-Hit Invuln
300, 500 All 6 2,3 14 -2 +2
  • Deals 2 Hits if you're close enough

Strong pressure tool, links from 2L and c.L if close enough and frame traps from them no matter the distance. Easy to confirm from due to being 2 hits, which would matter far more if Belial's confirm tools were actually unsafe.

Level Attribute

f.H

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery On-Block On-Hit Invuln
500, 500 All 9 2(13)2 18 -5 -1 (forces crouch)
  • 2 hit natural combo
  • 2nd hit does NOT cancel, only the first hit can

Combos into 236H on first hit, useful in combos to extend into 214X. No longer combos on second hit CH, and you'll lose your turn on regular hit. Otherwise a pretty decent pressure button due to its range and forward momentum. Despite being -5 on block the only character who can actually punish it is Belial himself, using 2L. Still an extremely strong normal in neutral. Allows combos that would otherwise be impossible, thanks to Belial moving forward an absurd distance during its startup.

Level Attribute

2L

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery On-Block On-Hit Invuln
400 All 5 3 8 0 +6

Not a low but nonetheless one of Belial's strongest defensive tools. It goes extremely far on its first active frame, significantly further than Lancelot's or either of Narmaya's 5L, allowing it to punish or beat moves that even those normals aren't capable of.

Level Attribute

2M

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery On-Block On-Hit Invuln
700 Low 7 3 11 +1 +5

Hits low, +1 on block, decent range. The hitbox is extremely close to the ground, which can be exploited, but otherwise one of the most absurd normals in the game. Staple for pressure as it frame traps into 2L, c.L itself, f.M, and f.H depending on spacing and matchup. Also combos into 2L and c.L on normal hit, c.M on crouching hit, and f.M, C.H and f.H on counter hit.

Level Attribute

2H

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery On-Block On-Hit Invuln
1000 All 10 6 23 -12 -8

Belial's designated anti-air normal, hitbox isn't as bad as it might seem. Combos from this tend to be finicky, and you might want to use c.H instead, but it's still useful to swat people out of the air.

Level Attribute

2U

Much longer than the average sweep in exchange for being significantly slower. Useful poke.

Unique Action

Give Daddy Some Sugar

5U

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery On-Block On-Hit Invuln
200,800 ALL Total 136 -2 HKD 3~85 Catch

Belial walks forward with his arms spread wide, while taunting the opponent. If attacked by anything other than a throw, he will automatically track the opponent and counterattack them, with a guaranteed hard knockdown after. This move leaves him on counterhit state on frames 1~3, but curiously, he is not on counterhit state during recovery. Although somewhat useful, this move can be blocked and spotdodged after the counter activation on certain situations, leaving Belial on less-than-ideal positions.

236M 800 All 17 Total 49 -10 -6
236H 300×3 All 15 Total 49 +2 +6

Belial's projectile. Overall an extremely versatile tool.


L Fireball

236L goes forward and is used like a standard projectile, or to control space by transitioning into Everyone's A Little Crooked.


M Fireball

236M goes upward at about a 40 degree angle from Belial. Used to control air space occasionally, and sometimes to reset pressure, but never without the follow-up.


H Fireball

236H follows the same trajectory as 236L, and has three hits instead of one. What makes it unique to the other two versions is its ability to transition into Everyone's A Little Crooked even on hit and block, making it an extremely strong tool for midscreen combos and extending pressure from a frame trap. The H followup only combos on crouching opponents.

236X~4H 150×5 All 27 9×5 Total 40 +12 +16

Goetia followup which transforms the projectile into a spinning scythe that hits multiple times. The scythe takes a (very short) moment to spin up after transforming, during which the projectile does not have a hitbox. L followup causes the scythe to move forward, M followup causes the scythe to move backward, and H followup causes the scythe to decelerate and eventually spin in place.

In addition to the universal forward/backwards/stop commands, the L and M followups cause the scythe to move vertically up or down depending on which version of Goetia was initially used. For example, the forward moving L Goetia cancelled into L followup will cause the scythe to move up as well as forwards, while M Goetia into L followup will cause the scythe to move down as well as forwards. The specifics are as follows:

  • The L and M followups to L and H Goetia cause the projectile to move forwards & up and backwards & up respectively
  • The L and M followups to M Goetia cause the projectile to move forwards & down and backwards & down respectively
  • The H followups to all versions of Goetia do not affect the scythe's vertical positioning

The L and H followups push the opponent slightly on hit and block, while the M followup vacuums opponents towards Belial. The L and M followups hit 3 times, while the H followup hits 5 times.

623H 600, 300, 500 All 9 2(3)9(18)5 24 -12 HKD 1~22 All

Belial's reversal. One of the best DPs in the game.


L DP

623L is a standard DP with less air time than others, giving characters who thrive on air combos worse punishes.


M DP

623M has no invulnerability and only hits on the way down, but is plus on block. Can be used as a fakeout for people expecting the L version, but don't expect a good player to fall for it, as it can quite easily be interrupted with DP or even 2H on reaction. It can also be meatied to be a maximum of +7 on block while having 11 frames of recovery.


H DP

623H reintroduces the invulnerability and adds a follow-up hit for significantly stronger okizeme and damage, making it a strong combo ender in many situations.

214M 700, 700 All 21 4 19 -4 KD
214H 700, 600 All 14 4 19 -4 HKD

An advancing strike. If it hits from close range, it will grab the opponent and do more damage.


L Version

214L is a combo ender that sees usage when you're too far for 236H/623H to hit, or if those specials are on cooldown. Can also be used as a frame trap, but it'll lose you your turn.


M Version

214M is also a combo ender, but can only be comboed into from c.H or full autocombo on crouching hit.


H Version

214H launches the opponent and combos from basically any normal, leading to massive damage in corner. Post-236H nerf it's undoubtedly your best corner combo starter.

632146H 2000 Throw 27~82 3 34 HKD

A forward walk that ends in a command throw.


L Version

632146L moves a short distance, but won't activate until Belial has walked its full length.


M Version

632146M moves further. You probably won't use this at all due to its absurd startup.


H Version

632146H will automatically activate once Belial is close, making it by far the most practical version, despite the EX flash being an additional telegraph.

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery On-Block On-Hit Invuln
3500→2500 All 8+5 4(18)9 30 -20 HKD 1~16 All

An invulnerable move that strikes first, then dashes forward with another strike, so it can be used against distant enemies too. The gap between the two hits is just long enough that if they input 4G during the flash, the second hit'll catch its recovery.

Absurdly short range for full damage if you use the simple input, so try not to do that.
