Lord Balaram serves Lord Krishna in five other forms and assists in His pastimes as well.  He does perform the creation through four other forms entitled to catur-vyuha (four-armed) forms, namely- a) Vasudeva, b) Sankarshana c) Pradyumna, and d) Aniruddha. Implementation of Krishna’s instructions of creation and serving Him through the form of Lord Sesha, are His tasks.  Thus, He relishes the transcendental ecstasy of serving Lord Krishna. His glories are such that, without His mercy, no one can attain Krishna.
Krishna, always accompanied by His friends and paraphernalia whenever He descends into this material world.  Five thousand years ago, Baladeva, first appeared just before Lord Krishna descended into this material world. Had having the intimate relationship between them, it was like Lord Krishna came here by Baladeva’s mercy.
Lord Balarama is sixteen years old, overflowing with the luster of youth and  crystal-clear skin. He’s dressed in blue with a garland of woodland flowers around his neck. His hair is pulled back into an elegant topknot. His ears are decorated with beautiful jewelry, and His neck is decorated with flower garlands and gem strings. Balaram’s elegant and very muscular arms are adorned with splendid armlets and bracelets, and His feet are ornamented with glittering anklets.
The earrings that touch Lord Balarama’s cheeks enrich  His beauty. His large chest is decorated with a garland of gunja, and his face is adorned with Tilaka composed of musk. Balarama’s voice is very grave, and His arms are long enough to reach his thighs.
Many millions of glittering rising moons are eclipsed by Lord Balarama’s splendor, and even a whiff of His limitless strength is enough to annihilate armies of demons. Despite the fact that He is aware of Krishna’s extraordinary abilities, He never leaves Krishna alone in the forest, even for a second, out of love for Him. Balarama is Sri Krishna’s closest friend and a huge reservoir of many pastimes.
Srimad Bhagavatam and other Vedic literatures describe Lord Balarama’s various pastimes in Vrindavan, Mathura and Dvarka as well. During His pastimes, He killed demons like Dhenukasura and Pralambasura. He reprimanded Yamuna Devi due to not giving way and Kauravas as well for capturing Samba. He married Ravati, His eternal wife. He expressed angry at Bhima for killing Duryodhana tricky and killed Romaharshana for failing to represent Vyasadeva properly.

Glories of Lord Balarama
Lord Balarama is very much recognized for His great service attitude towards Krishna. Pleasing Krishna is His mission and serves Him either in the way of creation of material world, or maintaining spiritual world or becoming His personal paraphernalia.
Being Sri Krishna’s eternal companion, He first appeared with Rama as Lakshmana and then with Caitanya Mahaprabhu as Nityananda Prabhu. He is the original spiritual master, and anyone seeking spiritual advancement must first beg Lord Balarama’s mercy; ultimately one must get the blessings of the spiritual master. We can’t reach Krishna directly, but through Balaram. Thus, we can obtain Krishna’s blessing by pleasing our spiritual master through following his instructions.
