* ThatOneAttack: Jeanne's ''goddamn'' missile during the third fight! The QTE requires a hyper-fast reaction time and failure causes ''a lot'' of damage.

*** {{Moviebob}}, in his guise as The Game Overthinker, believes Bayonetta is not so much sexually appealing as much as she is ''sexually intimidating'', and feels she is unique in this regard.

** An intentional gamebreaker is the Climax Bracelet, normally unlocked by obtaining every achievement/trophy AND collecting every crow on one save game. Equipping the accessory invalidates any score made on a level where the accessory was equipped. When you can [[RankInflation Pure-Platinum]] the penultimate boss without a sweat using something, you know it's a game breaker.

** An intentional gamebreaker is the Climax Bracelet, Brace, normally unlocked by obtaining every achievement/trophy AND collecting every crow on one save game. Equipping the accessory invalidates any score made on a level where the accessory was equipped. When you can [[RankInflation Pure-Platinum]] the penultimate boss without a sweat using something, you know it's a game breaker. [[note]] You can also get the Climax Brace early . If you use play (but do not complete) the Alfheim of Chapter III, you can score enough halos in around half an hour to use all remaing codes and buy the Platinum Ticket.[[/note]]



** You can save at least 2.8 million halos (and a lot of effort) by spending 5 million halos to unlock the Climax Bracelet before finishing Normal Mode and then use it to finish off Normal mode. The game will give you a total combo score of 9999999 and a total time of 00:00:00, unlocking the Bracelet of Time with no additional effort.

* BestBossEver: The last three bosses of the game, [[spoiler: [[EvilCounterpart Jeanne 3,]] [[FinalBoss Balder]] and [[TrueFinalBoss Jubileus]] ]] are widely considered to be the best bosses in the entire game, and considering that one of the earliest bosses is a 2-headed, ginormous fire-controlling angelic dragon with a face on its chest that speaks in Enochian, you KNOW that they are gonna be freaking awesome. And they '''are.'''

%% * CrazyAwesome: The Game.

%% * CrazyAwesome: TheGame, basically. The Game.Torture Attacks, the demon summons, the use of Bayonetta's friggin' ''hair'' as a magical element, and most of the battle situations are unrealistic and highly allergic to FridgeLogic, but they're just so cool that you won't care. Even Bayonetta's standard attacks count once the player learns how to use them efficiently, and they only get better once Rodin's techniques get added to the mix!



** The Durga-Kilgore glitch, which lets you unleash an infinite combo using a specific set of weapons, and thereby gets huge amounts of halo and combat score points.
%%* GoddamnedBats: The Decorations and Enchants are this.

%%* ** In the Wii U port, there's the [[BlockingStopsAllDamage Hero of Hyrule costume]]. While ''Bayonetta 2'' makes you shell out 100,000 halos to get the Super Mirror 64 and another 100,000 for the costume (the same price as the accessory it replaces), it's given to you ''for free'' in this game as soon as you visit Rodin's shop. Although generally useful for the whole game, the costume's parry removes practically all of the difficulty and danger from early chapters when you're working with low health -- ''especially'' the fight with Fortitudo in Chapter 1, whose powerful attacks are difficult to dodge but become a breeze to handle with the parry.

GoddamnedBats: The Decorations Dears, Decorations, Enchants, and Enchants are this.Harmonies have a nasty tendency to get in your way and make comboing impossible until you've wiped them out.



%%** And again, the Durga-Kilgore glitch

%%** And again, the ** The Durga-Kilgore glitchglitch can shred through anything and give you the halos and rankings that normally require lots of finesse and work, making it a great way to unlock everything quickly.

**** The lyrics to her theme song, "Mysterious Destiny," support this, claiming that she buries her loneliness deep down in her eyes and that sadness lies in her smile

** [[HoYay Bayonetta and Jeanne]] appears to be a popular pairing as well, thanks to their FoeYay-ness. It doesn't help that she (Jeanne) ''resembles Dante.''

** Occurred when Sega announced that the games would be region-locked for all releases. They quickly ate their words and claimed that it was a misunderstanding and that only the Xbox360 version is region-locked, as a result of the resulting threats of boycott.
** When it was first announced that the sequel would be exclusive to the WiiU, most fans were angry. Thankfully, most of the backlash has died down now.

** The PC version doesn't have any of the Nintendo-centric content (for obvious reasons), but has enhanced visuals, and support for ultra-wide resolutions. This version's optimization also allows the game to run smoothly even on mid-to-lower end machines. On top of that, modding possibilities are also open.

** Speaking of proportions, her head and torso are of normal proportions, but [[UncannyValley her arms and legs are freakishly long and skinny for a character rendered in a semi-realistic fashion]]. She's like a hyper-sexualized female version of [[TheSlenderManMythos Slender Man]].

%%* NarmCharm* NarmCharm: It's incredibly campy, to the point where spotlights appear out of nowhere when the title character reveals herself. Like it's spiritual predecessor, it's done in a way that gives it a lot of charm and appeal.



* PolishedPort: The Wii U release works just as well as the Xbox 360 release, on top of having exclusive Nintendo-themed costumes that actually change some things up (like the Wicked Weaves becoming Bowser's limbs while in the Princess Peach or Princess Daisy costume). It also helps that it comes free with the disc release of ''Bayonetta 2'', and gets a massive discount if you buy the digital version of ''Bayonetta 2''. According to [[http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2014-bayonetta-wii-u-face-off Digital Foundry]], the Wii U version has similar performance to the Xbox 360 release, but with added bonuses such as vertical sync and higher quality shadows.
