Imit-Ultraman Belial (ニセウルトラマンベリアル Nise Urutoraman Beriaru) was an Ultra created from experimentation on Ultraman Belial's cells. While appearing similar to the former's Reionics form, he sports a yellow-gold color scheme on his crest and claws.
Episode 23 of Ultraman Taiga was intended as a 10th anniversary celebration for Ultraman Zero (and to a lesser extent, Belial)'s debut in Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legends The Movie. Writer Aya Satsuki said that she was reluctant with bringing Belial back into fighting against Zero, since the Dark Ultra had long reached his definitive conclusion way back in the final episode of Ultraman Geed. To solve this, she proposes the idea that the original Belial's cells were cultivated way back in episode 15.
The Imit-Belial's suit is simply the recycled version of the original Belial with minor repaints.
Wanting to defeat the Tri-Squad and Ultraman Tregear, a trio of aliens, Alien Zarab, Alien Godola and Alien Sran, sought out Alien Chibull Mabuze, who was in possession of Ultraman Belial's genetic samples. Together, they created a clone of Ultraman Belial who had his template's fighting prowess, but lacked intelligence.
The Belial clone went on a rampaging spree and fight against all three members of the Tri-Squad, surpassing each of them in strength, speed and firepower. Tregear joined the fray, wanting to get rid of Imit-Belial for interfering with his plans. His mocking of the clone leads to Mabuze empowering him with more Belial cells, but it eventually becomes his own undoing as Tregear leads said copy to attack its creators, crushing them under the building they were in.
As Taiga was on the brink of defeat, Ultraman Zero suddenly appeared and saved him in last minute. They join forces to attack both evil Ultras. After their beam struggle ended in a tie, Taiga Tri-Strium made use of the Plasma Zero-let to initiate Taiga Dynamite Shoot and open fires on the Imit-Belial, who Tregear used as a meat shield. The Belial copy was destroyed while Tregear escaped unharmed.
- Height: 55 m
- Weight: 60,000 t
- Claws: Imit-Belial's yellow-tipped claws are able to scratch and batter enemies, and are even capable of damaging Taiga Photon-Earth through his heavy armor.
- Death-lash (デスラッシュ Desurasshu): Simply by swinging his claws forward, Imit-Belial can fire a series of dark crescent energy projectiles at his targets. This is based on the original's Kaiser Belial Ripper.
- Claw Lightning: Imit-Belial can shoot a stream of lightning from his claws. Unlike the original's, the bolts are yellow.
- Death Light Ring (デス光輪 Desu Kōrin): Imit-Belial can launch a purple circular saw of dark energy from his hand.
- Deathcium Beam (デスシウム光線 Desushiumu Kōsen): Like the original, Imit-Belial can perform his signature Ultra Beam through the same hand maneuver.
- Rapid Punches: Imit-Belial can throw dozens of punches at blinding speeds. While punching, Imit-Belial delivers a unique battle cry, "BELI-BELI-BELI-BELI!", repeated at high speed.
- Extraordinary Jumping: Imit-Belial is able to leap high into the air, and then come down at incredible speeds, being able to floor opponents by colliding with them.
- He is not the first impostor of Belial, as that was given to an Eteldummy copy created by Etelgar from Ultraman Zero's memory in Ultraman Ginga S The Movie: Showdown! The 10 Ultra Warriors!.
- Due to its recent creation and lack of intelligence, this Belial simply laughs and groans in this appearance, both of which are stock voices from one of the original's voice actor, Yuki Ono.
- His yellow crest and claws are references to the defects of Alien Zarab and Gregore during their impersonations of Ultra Warriors.
- The scene in which Imit-Belial and Ultraman Titas engage in a series of rapid punches while yelling their battle cries (Ultra-ra-ra for Titas and Beli-Beli for Imit-Belial) is based on "Stand Cries", a type of fast-paced battle cry certain Stands from the manga series JoJo's Bizarre Adventure shout while carrying out rush attacks.
- His death from being used as a meat shield is not unlike the original Belial using Ultrawoman Beth as one from Ultraman Powered's Mega Spacium Beam from Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legends The Movie.
