Meant no racism. I apologize. By what "we" believe, I assume you are referring to Christianity. IMO there are no real life entities as such in Bael and Mephistopheles. My point though was that 80% of the game is based on Judo-christian mythology and therefore was grounds for my information. Keep in mind, we are debating the strengths of video characters........ I'm not sure that this would be a subject worth Debating, maybe establishing opinions, but it IS a video game.

By we I meant the Diablo community, and I was referring to the game characters
And no offence was taken.

They are based off of them, but, their relationship does not seem to equal what you put forth. In the Sin War (spoiler) the Temple of the Truine shows an equality, and the Three, by all accounts, seem to rule Hell in a joint effort.
PlugY for Diablo II allows you to reset skills and stats, transfer items between characters in singleplayer, obtain all ladder runewords and do all Uberquests while offline. It is the only way to do all of the above. Please use it.
Supporting big shoulderpads and flashy armor since 2004.
In mythology, Mephisto, or Mephistopheles had many children spawned from the pairing of evils, the pairing of heavens and evils, as well as the spawn of incubi. Mephisto controls the supposed portals the the gates of the underworlds as well as assigned to collect souls promised to the Lord Lucifer himself represented as "Diablo". This would suggest that Mephisto was the strongest in battle due to the pure sociopathy of his personality. In many stories the Devil (Diablo) makes well on promises and deals that he makes with mortals as well as those from the angels burrow, however Mephisto lives on deception destruction and sadism.
Mephisto would win that fight.
Now, Baal, or Bael was said to be the first lieutenant to the Lord Diablo with 66 legions of the spawn of afterlived souls and Diablo himself. Some dispute that he is King of Hell in the east. By representing Hell as a circle Dante Allighiri dismissed the idea and brought Baels representation under false assumptions into the sixth layer of Hell, Lucifer or Diablo of course reserved in the seventh layer, suggesting that Diablo kept Bael under his thumb, supporting the theory that not only would Mephisto kick Diablo's ass, but he could wipe his ass with the afterlifeless Bael and discard him like a cigarette.
You forget that in that very mythology, Lucifer is the one who led the revolt against heaven, and is the Chief Prince of Demons (fallen angels)... Mephistopheles is not cannonitically considered a Jewish demon. His popularity mostly came about with the play Faust.
Like Phrozen said, Diablo is not Satan. Diablo isn't even remotely like Satan, since he's supposed to be an Angel of Light (after the Fall of Lucifer, he's considered the Angel of False-Light, or Lies, or Prince of Lies.) Diablo is a big red dragon with a Spanish name.
Big D all the way. I mean Mephisto is a one hit wonder with his little ice ball thing and baal is too busy cackling maniacally and letting his minions do all the work but Big D has no problems getting down and dirty once you summon him and kicking EVERYONE'S ass hell, he'll even make a special ass-whoopin' appearance if you sell enough SOJ's
So with that, I'd say Diablo's badassness would rule out and he'd smack his brothers back in line
i vote for baal im thinking he would use his teleport skills to tie up mephy with the moat trick and hold off diablo with his festering appendages then clone his self and double team diablo until his bones lay upon the floor

I appolagize for my spelling but im dyslexic and not retarded:D
PVP DIABLO vs mephisto.. ( players fights, not cpu )
that means, diablo attacks with only his inferno..and mephisto with his melee and lighning... ofc diablo wins..his inferno is powerfull..
diablo vs baal... ( if players fights ) then diablo wouldnt attack stupid tenticles of baal.. but directly attacks baal..ofc diablo wins.. but baal maybe has nice hp and resistances..
baal vs mephisto.. i would say baal wins because he can clone himself
But he would need to be in the World Stone Chamber to do that, and it doesn't actually grant him power, if I remember correctly, since he isn't tied to it. He was only using it to break the barriers between the worlds (or atleast that's what the in-game content suggested.)
