Bali that was present at the time of Samundra manthan, was different from the Mahabali that of Vaman avatar. At time of Samundra-Manthan Vishnu takes the 2nd avatar of Kurma, his 3rd avatar is used to kill Hiranyash, Uncle of Prahlad. at that time Prahlad was not born. 4th is to kill father of Prahlad, ie Narsing Avatar. 5th is vaman avatar to test the Bali(Grandson of Prahlad). Actually this mistake is by Wikipedia, who had linked between the to 2 kings with same name.
CV's do research mostly from net. So they might get confused.
In puranas there were many asurs that were present with the same name. like my name is Shreya. That doesn't mean that I am Shreya Ghoshal.
At time of Tarakausr, his senapati name was mahishasur, which was killed by Kartikey. then again asur named Mahishasur came which was killed by devi.
Shubh-Nishubh was killed by devi, then again asurs named Shubh-Nishubh came for which devi had taken avatar from yashoda and nand's daughter (mention in Mahabharat) then she went to stay at Vindhyachal, then she killed them Shubh-Nishubh.
Hope I cleared ur doubts.
