** Thanks to the same game above, she is paired with [[{{Metroid}} Samus]]. Not surprising that both girls are main characters of their respective series and have a tremendous amount of sex appeal.

* MostAnnoyingSound: Jubileus's nails-on-a-chalkboard screeching during the finale, which you'll be hearing a lot. On the other side of the coin, her fight was scored with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QV3wFRy23cY "The Greatest Jubilee"]], which is far more reverent and joyous than, say, the Cardinal Virtues' themes... but juxtaposing Jubileus's screeching with such a beautiful song ''[[GoneHorriblyRight makes it sound even worse]]''.

** The combination scoot-growl-"Riders of the Light" soundtrack you'll hear when fighting Graces, Glories, Graciouses, and Gloriouses. Not too common in regular difficulties, but since Hard and above have no problem changing up verse enemies...

** The beginning of chapter 8 and the "disappearing platforms" part in chapter 15 also qualify on [=PS3=], mainly because [[GameBreakingBug the framerate operates a breathtaking drop in these two specific parts]].

* UncannyValley: Balder in the first game. There's something ''wrong'' with the way he looks compared to the other characters; his skin's pale and waxy and...and he looks ''sick''. [[spoiler: The events of the second game reveal that he actually is sick; he looks normal enough until he comes down with a bad case of Loptr, at which point he starts looking really unwell due to the evil god eating away at him from the inside.]]

*** {{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: 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.

%%* ** 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.

%%** 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.

** 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.
