Appearance and Description

Balrog is a set of gauntlets, grieves, and shoulder pads (Blow Mode only) created with the sealed power of the king of Fire Hell.[2]

All of Balrog's components are metal and plated in such away that they look like magma once fire starts flowing through them. The gauntlets have yellow eyes on the back of the hands that have black slit pupils. The shoulder pads have to large spikes that curve out to the sides of Dante before curving upwards. During certain attacks, the gauntlets increase in size.

Gameplay

The Balrog has two different modes, a Kick Mode and a Blow Mode.

Kick Mode lets Dante perform powerful kicks on enemies. Dante seems to use a style similar to capoeira, incorporating a lot of flips and cartwheel-kicks. While using Balrog, Dante can perform a breakdance windmill, kicking any enemies around him. It has a backflip-kick rising launcher and a dive kick.

Blow Mode focuses on boxing-like punching and allows Dante to execute short dodges. Balrog has a quick jabbing attack while on the ground. It also has an attack where-in Dante dashes forward and delivers a large straight that can be followed with a powerful uppercut. Dante also has a can also execute a full spin into a backfist. While in the air, it has a three hit aerial combo that ends with a powerful punch that sends enemies to the ground.

Trivia

  • The name of the weapon is a reference to Balrog, a character in the Street Fighter series.[3]
  • The magma-like composition and the flames it emits upon striking are a reference to the monster of the same name in The Lord of the Rings.
