  • Star Power #1: Positive Feedback
    • Belle gets a damage-reducing shield when an enemy is electrocuted by her main attack.
  • Star Power #2: Grounded
    • Belle’s Super also prevents the marked target from reloading for a while.

  • Main Attack: Sticky Blomb

  • Super Ability: Big Blob
    • Squeak lobs a larger bomb that splits into 6 Sticky Blombs.
