Belphemon is a Demon Lord Digimon whose name and design are derived from the mythological Belphegor, as well as the Second Beast of Revelation and the Tamagotchi. It is said to be sealed in the deepest part of the Dark Area. As the strength it possesses is too immense, its data is said to have been put in a Sleep state by the Digital World's system, although the truth of the matter is unconfirmed. Because it has fallen into a deep sleep, it cannot unleash its own attacks, but it is able to inflict damage to Digimon just with its snores, and for that reason it will not be easy to attack Belphemon in its sleep.
It is one of the "Seven Great Demon Lords", representing Mars and the sin of Sloth. It is said that Belphemon awakens from its eternal slumber once in a thousand years. When it awakens, it regains its natural shape and changes into an incarnation of rage, and anything that enters its field of vision becomes a target for destruction. It is said that just by suffering Belphemon's roar, Ultimate Digimon and below will have their data disintegrated and will instantly die, and not even Mega Digimon can escape unharmed.

The true form of every Demon Lord is supposedly infinitely greater than all of their weakened forms combined)

Standard Equipment: The chains that bind it, which shoot black flames at those who attempt to attack Belphemon
Intelligence: Sleep Mode is generally asleep, passive, and unaware of his surroundings. However, upon entering Rage Mode he becomes a fierce berserker who will destroy anything in his path, annihilating scores of Ultimate-level Digimon and easily dominating several Mega-level Digimon at once. While he rarely thinks in this state, he is still conscious enough to gather and cooperate with his fellow Demon Lords.
Weaknesses: Since he's asleep, he will not actively fight back against his foes unless they manage to rouse him from his slumber. | Rage Mode is a nearly mindless berserker that does not care for strategy, only destruction.
Overwrite: All Digimon can rewrite their data, so that they are able to react to various situations that were once problematic for it. This usually causes a gigantic increase in power, durability, speed and sometimes new skills and resistances to be gained. However, the more emotional the Digimon is, the more violent the overwrite becomes and thus can lead to negative effects.
- Eternal Nightmare: Belphemon's peaceful snores can injure enemies who approach him. In addition, listening to his deafening snores repeatedly will invoke nightmares in the listeners, forcing them to sleep and experience horrifying dreams for eternity.
- Lampranthus: Fires off black flames from the chains coiled around his body to attack those who approach him.
- Dark Horn: Impales the targets on his horns, which are clad in the flames of hell.
- Gift of Darkness: Slashes the target with his claws, which are wreathed in the flames of hell.
- Lightning Horn: Impales the target on a horn charged with lightning.
