* 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.

* The Moon of Mahaa-Kahlaa accessory essentially enables the use of StreetFighterIII's parrying system, complete with its method of use (move toward an incoming attack shortly before it hits).

* 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.]]

* You get bonuses for collecting halos. What [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog other]] Sega title rewards you for amassing a lot of gold circles?

** If you want to get really hardcore on this reference, Pillow Talk hosts a charge attack that will extend the blade and power, and hosts 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.

Examples Are Not Arguable. And Shout Outs must be intentional
* Perhaps an Expy, but consider Vigrid. Well-armed security forces, people openly walk around in holy dress...Vatican City with another name? (And possibly transplanted to France...) ** Or Gaudi's dream city.

* Bayonetta's ability to whack her enemies with a key is probably a reference to ''Clockwork Knight'', though to more players it will probably bring to mind ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts''. * Luka's supposed past flings[[note]]Actually his pet cats[[/note]] have some... Familiar names: [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil2 Claire]], [[VideoGame/DevilMayCry Trish]], [[VideoGame/ViewtifulJoe Silvia]], and[[VideoGame/{{Okami}} ...Ammy]].

* At the beginning of the game, Bayonetta and Enzo are conducting the funeral of a guy named "[[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Eggman]]" and the angel Halos which comprise the game's currency seem and look awfully familiar. ** The 'Eggman' line [[http://platinumgames.com/2010/04/14/platinum-twilight-and-bayonetta-developer-commentary/ was explained by Kamiya]] thus: --->'''Kamiya''': In this part, I had just randomly decided to use the word "Eggman". Then I found out it was the name of a character [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog in another famous game.]] I figured if the fans get a kick out of it, [[ThrowItIn then it is fine to leave it as it is.]] ** Turns out the halos ''aren't'' a Sonic reference, though Kamiya outright stated "if it makes the fans happy, sure, why not?" * One of the demonic beasts Bayonetta can summon is a reference to Phantom from ''Devil May Cry''. Both happen to be giant demonic spiders filled with lava. Oddly enough, it's portrayed in almost the opposite way; this demon is one of only ''two'' demons referred to positively. It is described as curious, rare, and willing to offer treasures or rare knowledge to those who find it, as opposed to the others which are for the most part described as brutal monstrosities. ** Games Radar notes all these, and more (such as a subtle one to ''VideoGame/GodOfWar'') [[http://www.gamesradar.com/f/30-hidden-references-in-bayonetta/a-2010011493658559064 here]].

* One of the unlockable attacks is a Tetsuzankou, a shoulder check commonly used by Akira in VideoGame/VirtuaFighter: if you finish a verse with a Pure Platinum rank and use it as the final attack, Bayonetta will quote Akira's [[CatchPhrase Catch]] [[YearsTooEarly Phrase]] in Japanese. On the other hand, it could also be another Street Fighter III reference, as Yun possesses a similarly named and performed move. ** The Tetsuzankou is also identical to a move used by Sylvia in Viewtiful Joe 2. * Maybe unintentional, but someone other than Bayonetta put her lipstick in an oversized Derringer and shot, [[http://www.animeram.eu/lupin-iii-series-2/145/ fourty years before her!]]

* The scene where the giant Beloved grabs Cereza and tries to take her is quite reminiscent of King Kong, with the giant monstrosity falls for a girl smaller than his hand.
