Notes and Trivia
- The design for Belthazor was based on the character of Darth Maul in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace.
- The Book of Shadows contains a potion specifically to vanquish Belthazor. However, this contradicts his entry, which states there is no known way to vanquish him. However, since the book is passed down through generations, the potion could have been added later.
- The vanquishing potions for Belthazor have been created three times. First by Piper and Prue in "Sleuthing with the Enemy", then by Piper and Paige in "Black as Cole" for Sykes, a similar demon and a final time by Piper and Paige in "Centennial Charmed."
- Belthazor has the most pages in the Book of Shadows dedicated to him, having a total of four. The Cole Turner page was written by Phoebe, his main page was written by an unknown ancestor (certainly born before Penny, who created the vanquishing potion).
Belthazor has appeared in a total of 10 episodes and 2 comic issue throughout the course of the series.
