In Diablo 3 our hero will state that a certain person is Belial.

Emperor Hakkar is Belial, and be correct.

How does the hero know?

It's the plot question rather than the game itself.

Also, if possible, I'd like the "official" reason.

For example, the idea that Belial can teleport is a speculation, not official reason why we know that person is Belial.

I don't know, but him just randomly teleporting everywhere kinda gives it away :P – l I Apr 13 '13 at 2:39
For a "Lord" of lies he was pretty freakin' obvious. – Oblivious Sage Apr 13 '13 at 4:54
And why the damn downvotes? Is there any specific part of the story where it's obvious? – Jim Thio Apr 13 '13 at 8:53
And if bellial can just teleport away, why not run away from the heror? What? Demon can teleport? – Jim Thio Apr 13 '13 at 8:54
People downvote because there's a spoiler in the question title. Do not assume everybody played the game yet. – Samuele Mattiuzzo Apr 13 '13 at 17:04

Common Sense.

You get ambushed by demons in his throne rooms, he teleports everywhere you go and talks about stuff which wouldn concern him if he would have been just a kid emperor.

Also for a kid, he seems to be pretty wise. How does he know about Zoltan Khuul? How does he get in his lair before you open it up ? I mean come on, he is like 8 years old.

It is really really obvious. Atleast Blizzard noticed that, and assume the Player Character (Even Barbarians with low intelligence) will see behind this masterful plan by the Lord of Lies.

Yet all this time the characters do not know until the last encounter. – Jim Thio Apr 20 '13 at 1:33
