* DanceOff: An angel disguised herself as Bayonetta, and tried to take Cereza away. The challenge is a dance off. Bayonetta wins, pissing off the angel enough to attack her and reveal its true form.

* BondageIsBad: [[PlayedWith Sort of?]] Bayonetta hits all the DarkActionGirl points, is a witch who sold her soul to hell for awesome magical power, summons demons to finish off her foes, and has some definite dominatrix elements. Her "Torture Attacks" are odd combinations of medieval torture devices and some BDSM elements (some more than others), and she uses these to obliterate actual angels. . . [[BlackAndGreyMorality who are gigantic assholes in their own right.]]

** Bayonetta does a ''lot'' of this in different ways. One of her taunts is "Do you want to ''touch'' me?" Surprisingly, this is actually a line shared by [[MirrorBoss Another Joe]] from ViewtifulJoe.
