'''''Bullet Witch''''' is a 2007 ThirdPersonShooter developed by Cavia and published by AQ Interactive (Japan) / Creator/{{Atari}} (North America/Europe) / Codemasters (Australia) for the {{Xbox 360}}.

Taking place in [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture 2013]], the story revolves around a supernatural event that occurred six years earlier and resulted in a large horde of demons (calling themselves the Geist) emerging and driving humanity to near-extinction.

In a coastal city in the U.S., a [[BlackMagicianGirl young]] [[HotWitch witch]] named Alicia arrives, driven by a [[HearingVoices disembodied voice]] called "The Darkness" that speaks to her. In her investigation of the city, she comes upon one of the last human military outposts and is asked by their commander to help save mankind. Using a magical broomstick that can change its shape and allow her to cast spells, Alicia sets out to rescue the surviving military forces in the city and confront Omega, a weapon- and magic-resistant demon.

The game was notable for allowing the player to summon various powerful spells, including [[InstantThunder lightning strikes]], [[BlowYouAway powerful tornadoes]] and [[ColonyDrop meteor showers]]. The player's weapon could also [[MorphWeapon transform into]] [[SwissArmyWeapon four different types of guns]]. It received mixed reviews upon its release.

Not to be confused with ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'' or [[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Marisa Kirisame]].

!!This video game features the following tropes:

* AmericanKirbyIsHardcore: The Japanese cover art (and page image) features Alicia with her broom standing behind a moonlit city. The [[http://image.gamespotcdn.net/gamespot/images/box/2/2/0/931220_78606_front.jpg overseas release]] changes the background with a city in an inferno with some of the game's enemies. However, the overseas cover is also reversible for those who prefer the Japanese cover art.
* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: [[spoiler:The final boss, and the giant geists]].
* AwesomeButImpractical: Nearly all of the spells besides Lightning. Tornado has a massive attack animation but does little damage to enemies. The player is also more likely to kill themselves with the Meteor spell than other enemies..
* AwesomeMcCoolName: The leader of the [[LaResistance human resistance]], Maxwell Cougar.
* BareYourMidriff: Alicia in her default outfit, Dynamite Beauty, Pixie, and Mummy costumes.
* {{BFG}}: Alicia's gun, which is supposed to look like a broomstick. It can also [[MorphWeapon transform]] into several other weapons.
* BlackMagicianGirl: Alicia.
* BlowYouAway: Alicia's Tornado spell.
* [[BoomStick BroomStick]]: Alicia's broom can morph into several [[SwissArmyWeapon other weapons]].
* BottomlessMagazines: PlayedWith. The ammunition for Alicia's broom/gun is created through the use of magic, but she cannot fire it unless she has mana to use.
* {{Celibate Hero}}ine: Alicia.
* CrapsackWorld: The world was hit by earthquakes, wars, plague... and now demons. When the plot starts, the world's population has been reduced to just under a billion, and in spite of Alicia's efforts, she's only liberated one (bombed-out) city by the end of the game while demons still inhabit the rest of the world.
* CruelAndUnusualDeath: The enemies in the game will kill Alicia in a large number of ways, ranging from fairly mundane guns and knives, to ripping her body apart and devouring her alive. And even after killing Alicia, they will frequently continue to attack her dead body; Geists will continue to shoot Alicia's corpse, causing her body to jerk repeatedly, while Walnut Heads will lift Alicia's corpse into the air, telekinetically tear off all her clothes, then rip her naked body to pieces.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Despite being a witch, Alicia is a good girl.
* DealWithTheDevil:
** How the demon invasion started.
** Also, implied how [[spoiler: Alicia got her powers]].
* DeathFromAbove: Alicia's ultimate spell, Meteor.
* DownloadableContent: All of the extra costumes are absolutely free. However, everyone outside of Japan has to pay for the extra missions (they cost about $0.25, roughly $4.25 in total). Alicia's costumes include:
** CatholicSchoolGirlsRule: The Schoolgirl costume.
** FairySexy: The Pixie costume.
** HellBentForLeather: The White Witch costume.
** MsFanservice: The Dynamite Beauty costume, consisting of a small open shirt, [[DangerouslyShortSkirt a mini-skirt]], and [[ZettaiRyouiki thigh-highs]]. Also sports a pair of [[{{Meganekko}} glasses]].
** {{Mummy}}: The Mummy costume.
** SexySecretary: The self-explanatory Secretary costume.
* ElementalPowers: Alicia can imbue her ammunition with elemental properties, and learn spells which control the elements.
** PlayingWithFire: Fire ammo for the machine gun.
** BlowYouAway: Wind ammo for the shotgun and the Tornado spell.
** ShockAndAwe: Electricity for the gatling gun and her Lightning spell.
** DishingOutDirt: While not used offensively, Alicia can summon stone walls for cover.
** GreenThumb / PetalPower: The Rose Spear spell.
** LightEmUp: Light ammo for the cannon.
* FateWorseThanDeath: [[spoiler: Jumping into that pit didn't kill the guy from the introduction. He's been kept alive in the pit for months unable to die, And likely aware that he brought about the end of the world,]]
* GatlingGood: One of Alicia's most powerful guns.
* HotWitch: Alicia, of course.
* ICannotSelfTerminate: [[spoiler:The human sacrifice from the introduction scene, who didn't die after he jumped in and has been trapped alone in a pit for months]].
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: Alicia's Rose Spear spell summons a dozen spears that burst out of the ground, impaling everything in the area of effect. This results in HighPressureBlood and then subsequently a [[IncendiaryExponent blaze of death]].
* LaResistance: Maxwell Cougar is the leader of the resistance, who Alicia meets with (and later fights beside) at the beginning of the game.
* LadyOfWar: Alicia's personality has elements of this.
* LukeIAmYourFather: [[spoiler: The guy who throws himself into the pit and summons the demons is Alicia's father]].
* MadeOfExplodium: Shoot any vehicle enough and it will explode. Doesn't matter where you shoot it, either. Shoot the windshield? '''BOOM!'''
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: Alicia slowly gets her ultimate spells from Darkness.
* NightOfTheLivingMooks: And day-time, too.
* OneHitKill: The result of flinging any physics-affected object into yourself. This is often caused by casting Meteor, as it tends to fling things everywhere.
* PantyShot: When wearing the schoolgirl or secretary outfits, and while side-dodging.
* SensualSpandex: Alicia's downloadable Pixie outfit.
* SomethingAboutARose: Alicia's Rose Spear spell summons a line of razor-sharp blades shaped like rose petals to impale enemies.
* SpiritualSuccessor: To the ''Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex'' game for the {{PlayStation 2}}, which was also developed by Cavia. Both games share similar shooting elements.
* [[StandardFPSGuns Standard TPS Guns]] / SwissArmyWeapon: Your broom can take form of a [[MoreDakka machine gun]], a {{shotgun|sAreJustBetter}}, a [[SniperRifle cannon]], and a [[GatlingGood gatling gun]].
* UpdatedRerelease: The Japanese Platinum Collection reprints contained all of the game's [=DLCs=] on the disc. Unfortunately, it's also region-locked.
* WalkingTechbane: Alicia, specifically for aircraft -- any aircraft she's on ''will'' crash for one reason or another. It's so universal that Darkness '''orders''' her not to board a helicopter during the ending.
** It's funny until you consider how all this started.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Some of the DLC costume changes Alicia's hair color. The Schoolgirl costume changes her hair to blue, Dynamite Beauty changes it to green, and Pixie changes it to pink.
