* The symbol on Bayonetta's chest, when combined with the crescent-moon shape cut out of her catsuit, forms the symbol of the Oboro clan from the PS2 Shinobi game.

** The music for a chapter is a remixed version of the ''Space Harrier'' theme. Also the music for the motorcycle portion of Chapter 8 is a remixed version of the theme from ''VideoGame/AfterBurner'', another classic Sega game. In both cases you can change the soundtrack to the original retro versions by holding down L1 and L2 (for PS3) or LB and LT (for 360) during the preceding cut scenes.

* In Chapter 5, you encounter two mini-bosses named "Grace and Glory". This is quite possibly a ''VideoGame/JetSetRadio'' reference, because the final boss theme in both games of that series are also called "Grace and Glory".

** This probably means less than the others, but the ''Evangelion'' and ''Bayonetta'' soundtracks have similar naming schemes for the tracks: [letter]-[number] [title] (i.e. "A-1 Rei I" in the former and "EV01 Beginning" in the latter).

* If you beat the game on its hardest setting, you unlock a weapon called Pillow Talk, which is basically a green, lightsaber-ish sword, and was taken straight out of ''Okami'' (including the name), in which it was wielded by Waka during both battles against him.
** If you want to get really hardcore on this reference, Pillow Talk hosts a charge attack that will extend the blade and increase its power , and both and the Shuraba host a cool but lengthy secret special attack that has Bayonetta perform a clockwise brandish before slicing downwards, unleashing a beam of energy when fully charged. Older fans will realize that these moves and even the weapon itself are brought over from the repertoire of Hayato Kanzaki of Star Gladiator fame. More fun references, Mahavirocana, the demon that inhabits Pillow Talk, is the king of Asura in Hinduism, and Hayato's blade extending move is called Asura, and his downwards energy wave slash is called Engetsu, meaning Full Moon. Even in Okami, Waka unsheathes Pillow Talk in the same fashion as Hayato. Someone down at Platinum must be very proud of Star Gladiator in his resume, and for good reason too, the game was Capcom's first foray into the 3D genre.
** "Pillow Talk" is also the name of one of the end songs from Devil May Cry, the very first one.
** The Golem boss in Paradiso is basically an upgraded version of Yami, endboss of Okami.

* Yet another ''Devil May Cry'' reference: an item Bayonetta can earn is called the "Bracelet of Time", which lets her trigger Witch Time on command. A similarly named "Bangle of Time" appears in the original ''Devil May Cry'' and serves a nearly identical purpose (halting enemies while letting Dante move freely). The description itself reads "''Eva, a truly extraordinary witch, entered into contract with a legendary dark knight, and then faced the amassed armies of Inferno,''" which clearly references Dante's mother Eva and his father, the Legendary Dark Knight Sparda.

* One of the BonusBoss of the games attacks after you get his health halfway down is a [[StreetFighter Akuma's Shun Goku Satsu]], complete with a blank screen and multiple hits shown. It drops your health down by [[NintendoHard 99% when you have full health, but kills instantly when you have less than 50% health left]]. [[PrecisionFStrike Fuck.]]
