Belgarath is a seven-thousand year old sorcerer in the universe of the Belgariad. No known mortal, unaided, has been shown to be a match for him in that world. Some of his more impressive martial accomplishments include:
- Defeating, at different times, other sorcerers (such as Ctuchik and Zedar) who were of similar age and who had received similar favour from a god.
- Summoning, and holding to his will, a demon lord.
