* FaceDoodling: Bayonetta does it to Luka. While he's talking to her. And the markings [[ShoutOut look]] [[{{Okami}} pretty familiar]].

* SerialEscalation: ''Constantly''. When you have characters like Joy [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aovjii973Nc making this sort of entrance]], its awesome even for Crazy Awesome. Each boss fight is crazier and more insane than the previous one. The sheer volume of bosses and mini bosses is practically inconceivable and it only gets more awesome as time goes by. Special mention goes to the MirrorMatch battle with Jeanne where you spend half the fight duelling atop an armed missile ''after it's been launched'', and the final boss battle where Bayonetta [[spoiler:takes on God herself in a floating cocoon in ''outer space'']]. In the ends, whereas ''Devil May Cry'' escalates the action; Bayonetta ''accelerates''.

* TheGoomba: The Affinity angels, encountered in the prologue chapter they don't put up much of a fight, Bayonetta capable of wiping out a small platoon of them with just some handguns (before she gets the Scarborough Fair).

* GameplayRoulette: The gameplay is rather regular in the first twelve chapters, save for a brief passage in chapter 6 where you must [[ImprobableWeaponUser fight a few angels using a lightpole]], and the motorbike section in chapter 8. Then you fight a boss on a surfboard, ride said boss to lead him to the giant spider you just summoned (chapter 13), shoot your way through a ''Space Harrier''-like level (chapter 14), fight a mini-boss with a defense turret, have a platforming section, outrun a fireball (chapter 15), and have to direct a lipstick-bullet into the penultimate boss' forehead (chapter 16). Then in the Epilogue, you get another motorbike section (where, in the first part, you run ''towards'' the camera). Finally, after maiming the FinalBoss, a mini-game makes you send its soul into the sun [[EarthShatteringKaboom while avoiding to crash into a planet]], and you have to destroy its body while falling in the middle of space.

** Also, the Joys seem to be this to both Bayonetta and the Umbra Witches in general. In fact, all of their animations are based on Bayonetta's, to the point of using her Scarborough Fair Taunt as their own, along with using her "finger snap" animation for some moves, the same parry animation, and the same animation while summoning feathers that Bayonetta uses when making Torture Attacks.

The first Joy you fight even disguises itself as you to try to lure Cereza away.



* MagicIsEvil: The source of all that CrazyAwesome magical power Bayonetta employs? Selling her soul to the demons of Inferno, most of which are genuinely evil monsters, which means ''all'' Umbra Witches suffer for all eternity. Since Bayonetta is apparently no longer mortal, she ''has'' to kill angels or risk damnation. Declining a continue in the Game Over screen causes a bunch of reaching hands to rip through the ground and pull Bayonetta, struggling and screaming, into Inferno.

''Bayonetta'' is a third person SpectacleFighter BeatEmUp in the style of ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry'', ''VideoGame/NinjaGaiden'', and ''VideoGame/GodOfWar'', starring the title heroine, a {{badass}} [[HotWitch witch]] with [[PrehensileHair epic hair]], [[ArmedLegs guns on her feet]], and a fathomless fondness for {{camp}}.

** Midway through Chapter VI, Bayonetta has to escort young Cereza through a battle verse. However, so as to escort this [[spoiler:assumed]] ordinary human child, Bayonetta has to be in the human world, which means she can't interact with the angels in Purgatorio. The section of Antonio's notebook that mentions the surrounding terrain exists in all three worlds simultaneously - which means that picking up a lamppost [[ImprobableWeaponUser and whacking the angels to death with it]] is a viable strategy - is [[SarcasmMode conveniently]] found ''after'' that battle verse.
