'''''Bullet Witch''''' is a 2007 ThirdPersonShooter made by Cavia for {{Xbox 360}}; the game was published by AQ Interactive in Japan, Creator/{{Atari}} in North America and Europe, and Codemasters in Australia.

Taking place in a CrapsackWorld, you play as [[HotWitch Alicia]] [[BlackMagicianGirl Claus]] as she kills demons and... [[ExcusePlot well, that's pretty much it]]. There was something about some guy who killed himself and summoned the demons, but let's face it: [[PlayTheGameSkipTheStory no one really cared about that]]. But if you must know, the story takes place in [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture 2013]], with humanity on the very of verge of extinction thanks to all hell breaking loose. The demons formed their own army called "the Geist" and continue to slaughter humans by the thousands. Alicia enters some unnamed part of the eastern United States coastline to fight off the demons taking over a city, despite [[HearingVoices the disembodied voice]] of the Darkness telling her that place was already doomed. Along the way, she meets up with Maxwell Cougar, the commander of the last of humanity's remaining armed forces, who requests Alicia's assistance in their resistance against the demons.

The game's highlight was that you played as a gun-wielding witch who could use various spells, like [[InstantThunder calling lighting strikes]], [[BlowYouAway summon tornadoes]], and [[ColonyDrop meteors showers]]. Also, [[MorphWeapon your gun could transform into]] [[SwissArmyWeapon various different weapons]]. The game fared poorly in markets with middling reception from critics. Problems included [[ArtificialStupidity awful A.I.]], bad English voice-overs, and bad level design, but the fast action and ultra spells got praise.

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

!!This video game features the following tropes:
* AmericanKirbyIsHardcore: The Japanese cover art feature Alicia with her broom standing behind a moonlit city, which is what the page image displays. 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 oversea version's cover is reversible for those who prefer the Japanese cover art.

* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: [[spoiler:The final boss, and the giant geists.]]
* AwesomeButImpractical: Pretty much any ultra spell besides Lighting. Tornado looks cool, but kills little. You're more likely to kill yourself with Meteor.
* 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 suppose to look like a broomstick, [[MorphWeapon can transform]] into a bunch of weapons; see [[StandardFPSGuns Standard TPS Guns]] below.
* BlackMagicianGirl: Alicia.
* BlowYouAway: Alicia's Tornado spell.
* [[{{Pun}} "Broom"]] [[BoomStick Stick]]: Her witches' broom can morph into [[RuleOfCool all sorts]] of [[SwissArmyWeapon awesome guns]]!
* BottomlessMagazines: [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], as her ammo is created through the use of magic.
* {{Celibate Hero}}ine: Alicia.
* CrapsackWorld: The world was hit by earthquakes, wars, plague... and now demons. It's a pretty crappy place to live.
* 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, but Atari thought it was good idea to make everyone outside of Japan to pay for the extra missions (they cost about $0.25, roughly $4.25 in total). Alicia's costumes includes:
** CatholicSchoolGirlsRule: The Schoolgirl costume.
** FairySexy: The Pixie costume.
** HellBentForLeather: The White Witch costume, but not as hell-bent as you think.
** 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: [[RunningGag As you'd guess]], the Secretary costume.
* ElementalPowers: Alicia can imbue her ammunition with elemental properties, and can 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 intro, 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.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: Alicia's Rose Spear spell summons a dozen spears that burst out of the ground, impaling everything in the area of effect.
** Results in HighPressureBlood and then subsequently a [[IncendiaryExponent blaze of death]].
* LaResistance: Maxwell Cougar is the leader of the resistance, and you fight along side many of the members in it.
* 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 physic-affected object into yourself. Usual result of casting Meteor, as it tends to fling things every which way.
* PantyShot: When wearing the schoolgirl or secretary outfits, Alicia's panties are visible when she does a variety of actions, and especially when she side-dodges, as she cartwheels to the side while spreading her legs open wide, her crotch facing the screen for a good second.
* 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}}, as that game was also developed by Cavia and 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.
* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: 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.
* 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.
