Beelzebub (ベルゼバブ beruzebabu?) is an enemy that was planned to appear in the cancelled BIOHAZARD 4 game dubbed "Stylish". It was to appear in the first stage.

The creature was instead added to Devil May Cry, with its design completely unchanged. However, its polygon count was much lower than when it was supposed to appear in "Stylish".[1][excerpt 1]

  1. Do any of the demons in "DMC" have noticeable traces of their origins as B.O.W.'s for "RE"?
    Takeyasu: As far as design goes, Beelzebub was completely unchanged. However, its polygon count was much lower than when the game was "RE 4". The same goes for Blade, minus the armor. It was originally a Hunter for "RE". You know how Phantom has flames running through its body? In "RE 4", that was going to be blood instead. Also, if you just make Griffon a bit more ragged-looking, that's basically his "RE 4" design. As soon as we switched to "DMC", we were told to patch up our monsters. Give them some first aid, if you will. They were originally zombie-like creatures, so we had to extract that zombie virus and make them healthy again. (laughs)
