[[caption-width-right:350:Seeing [[{{God}} this]] is one of those awesome moments. Knowing Bayonetta's going to '''[[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu kill it]]''' is another. ]]

Ahh, ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}''. From the Creator of the first ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry'', ''VideoGame/ViewtifulJoe'', and ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'', how could it not be an awesome game? Being the SpiritualSuccessor of ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry'', it's expected to have moments like this, but it most definitely takes things to higher levels than usual.

Needs a lot of WikiMagic.

* When you first play Bayonetta, you're taken directly into battle with hordes of angels and a dragon ON TOP OF A FALLING CLOCK TOWER. Yes you have infinite life at this point. And yes Jeanne is your ally in here. Savor it.
** And to make things even better, one of the best themes in the game, "One of a Kind", is playing during this entire thing.
* Really, anytime you whip out that PrehensileHair, awesomeness is sure to follow.
* There's a cutscene in chapter 4 which sums up the series in less than a minute. After Fortitudo's introductory PastelChalkedFreezeFrame and a rather alarmingly loud bell accompanying it (the higher-ranking the angel, the louder the bell that goes with [[MookDebutCutscene the shot introducing it]]), Fortitudo rambles on while backed by a tense, ethereal heavenly choir for a few seconds. Bayonetta, naturally, doesn't let this shit fly, and proceeds to shoot, insult, and shoot Fortitudo some more before [[ShoutOut channeling]] her DemonSlaying [[Franchise/DevilMayCry predecessor]] (''"Flock off, feather-face!"''), [[SuperMode throwing her arms into the air]], [[ShakingHerHairLoose and letting her hair down]] [[DramaticWind while a dramatic wind sweeps the arena]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4JENW1yFHX4&t=53s and the music builds to a tense, string-heavy crescendo]]. And then it hits the player that our heroine does not care one bit how powerful this ginormous dragon angel boss is ''she's gonna kill it anyway''.
* When Bayonetta remembers her ability to transform into animals after a furious battle with Jeanne, starting with a panther. Even she thinks it's awesome:
--> '''Bayonetta:''' Oh my... that was bloody amazing!
* The Torture Attacks are really something.
** Annoying flying enemy that likes to shoot laser orbs at you? Grab that sucker and ''[[ChainsawGood rip it to shreds with a magic chainsaw]]''!
** Aggravating speed demon that likes to claw-combo you to death? Summon up a gigantic vice and crush the thing in it!
** Giant angel dog that likes to spit fireballs, shake you about like a ragdoll and stun you with a painful howl? Summon up a gigantic spiked wheel, slam it down right on top of it, and then kick it to tear the thing to shreds with the spikes!
* Chapter VIII in a nutshell. After years of fans asking for a [[BadassBiker motorcycle sequence]] in ''DMC'' games and to date ''still'' being denied one, Bayonetta does it in her ''first game''. The '''After Burner'' music just adds onto the awesome.
--> '''Bayonetta:''' ''(after starting the motorcycle by '''jamming her middle finger into the ignition''')'' Time to go VROOM!
* Chapter 14. ''VideoGame/SpaceHarrier'': Bayonetta Edition.
--> '''Bayonetta:''' Welcome to ''my'' fantasy zone. Get ready![[note]]A nod to the original ''Space Harrier''[='=]s opening line: "Welcome to the fantasy zone. Get ready!"[[/note]]
* The final fight with Jeanne when you finally arrive to [[spoiler: Isla Del Sol.]] Not only is the atmosphere up the roof with a DarkReprise of the jazzy Red & Black called [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=76euOHOxNfY Blood and Darkness]] but the action is spectacular (missile tug-of-wars and wicked-weave counters, etc.). However, the kicker is when Jeanne reveals her true colors as an Umbra Witch complete with intro and white dress. As your equal, she's definitely not messing around this time...
* Finishing off Father Balder. Bayonetta pulls out her ''lipstick'' ([[AllThereInTheManual which was apparently]] [[KarmicDeath a gift from Balder to Bayonetta's mother]]), loads it into Parsley[[note]]engraved with [[CatharsisFactor "ever joyous"]][[/note]], and fires it at the Lumen Sage.
-->'''Bayo:''' [[PreMortemOneLiner Don't]] '''[[PrecisionFStrike fuck]]''' [[PreMortemOneLiner with a witch!]]
-->''(cue BulletCam)''
* [[spoiler:Jeanne]] of all people saves us from a DownerEnding by ''[[BadassBiker riding a motorcycle]] on top of a rocket going to space''!
** Made even more awesome by her words and ''the music''.
---> '''[[spoiler:Jeanne]]''': The Left Eye, our treasured Left Eye, shall never fall into the hands of another. It is the pride of the Umbra Witches!
* The final boss fight against [[spoiler:Jubileus]], an already awesome fight that gets turned UpToEleven at the end of it where you [[spoiler:[[DealWithTheDevil summon the Devil]] [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu to punch Jubileus' soul out]]. You then steer her soul ''into the sun'' from the edge of the solar system. ''And it's all playable.'']]
* After everything has been said and done, the ending really looks like it's going for a DownerEnding [[spoiler: until [[BigDamnHeroes Jeanne]] [[BreakingTheFourthWall STOMPS ON THE CREDITS]], and she and Bayonetta team up to destroy Jubileus's body before [[ColonyDrop it crashes into Earth]].]]
** An awesome moment from Rodin is when [[spoiler:Bayonetta jumps out of her coffin]] and [[RunningGag he gets hit with the lid in the head. He doesn't even flinch.]]
* Luka gets a spectacular one just before the fight with Balder. After first shocking even Bayonetta with the fact that he made it to the top floor of the Ithavoll Building before she did (though granted, she did have to carve a path through an army of bloodthirsty angels), he calmly dismisses Balder's ranting as the insane babbling it is and tells him that his plans of genocide and domination are nothing new. But he gets an even bigger one after the fight when it's revealed that [[spoiler: he '''''survived''''' getting thrown from the top of the building by Balder]].
** There's also his tendency to get to places before Bayonetta does, and his other tendency to survive things that would kill anyone else. The guy's OvershadowedByAwesome, but he tries.
** Him snatching the remote control to a bunch of missiles from Jeanne with his grappling hook.
