The Belphegor is an enemy from Final Fantasy -Interlude-. Its physical attack is not as strong as its Strength stat suggests, but it still among some the most powerful enemies in the area it is fought.

Its HP is high, but if the player exploits both Belphegor's weaknesses by equipping Rosa with a bow and some Holy Arrows, Belphegor should fall quickly. Alternatively, if Yang manages to inflict Confuse on Belphegor by attacking it with the Faerie Claws equipped, Belphegor will cast Tornado on itself, reducing its HP below 10, meaning another attack will defeat it.

EtymologyEdit

In demonology, Belphegor is a demon and one of the seven princes of Hell who suggests ingenious inventions that will make people rich, although Bishop and witch-hunter Peter Binsfeld believed Belphegor to tempt by means of laziness. According to Peter Binsfeld's Binsfeld's Classification of Demons, Belphegor is the chief demon of the deadly sin Sloth.

Belphegor originated as the Assyrian Baal-Peor, the Moabitish god to whom the Israelites became attached in Shittim (Numbers 25:3), which was associated with licentiousness and orgies. As a demon, he is described in Kabbalistic writings as the "disputer," an enemy of the sixth Sephiroth "beauty." When summoned, he can grant riches, the power of discovery and ingenious invention. His role as a demon was to sow discord among men and seduce them to evil through the apportionment of wealth.
