Alicia from Bullet Witch is Bayonetta's younger sisterI'm just sayin'.
Actually....The whole "shit happens, demons overrun the world" thing in Bullet Witch wasn't caused by wasn't caused by whatever happened in that game (I haven't played it) but by Bayonetta killing Jubileus and shifting the cosmic power in favor of Inferno. There may not have been any alternative course of action.
Bayonetta and Devil May Cry share the same universeApart from sharing the same genre, and having similar themes, other signs seem to indicate more than a superficial connection. Amongst other things, the demon spider Phantasmaraneae, and the artifact the Bracelet/Bangle of time. This might also explain why no genuinely angelic influences have been seen in a DMC game, they couldn't care what the demons do, all will be well once their savior Jubileus is revived.
Umbra Witches aren't humanBayonetta sports a physically impossible figure, and far more flexibility and endurance a human body should possess. The answer? It's all hair. Not just the clothes, her entire body is a sentient mass of shape-shifting hair. Evidence indicates as a child, they are 'mostly' normal, so presumably this happens when they make their Deal with the Devil.
As long as Bayonetta receives at least one well received sequel, a crossover game with Devil May Cry is inevitableAnd it will be the most awesome game ever.
This game was a Take That against Capcom Production Studio 1 by Kamiya.Itsuno and CPS1 were handed the sequel to Devil May Cry before Kamiya had the chance to know what was going on... Which is strange, because before Devil May Cry was released Kamiya was responsible for making Resident Evil 2, which is widely considered the best game in the series back when the games had fixed camera views and no Ganados or Plagas virus. After the third and fourth games in the Devil May Cry series failed to really innovate or evolve, Kamiya was finally motivated enough to gather his faithful team, lay down the design document, and say "This. This is how Devil May Cry should have evolved. My will be done." And thus another Kamiya Classic was born, and Capcom executives have no doubt been wondering why the fuck they allowed Kamiya, Mikami, and Inaba to leave instead of offering them as much booze and hookers as Roppongi could offer.
Related to the above... While Kamiya's name is more well known than the average director's, he's not a household name. Yet. But he will be, along with the other directors.Bayonetta is going to get a sequel which somehow increases the HSQ in the series, and Platinum Games is going to go on to become a studio which produces nothing but hits. Kamiya, Mikami, and Inaba, already a cause for fandom rejoicing are going to quickly become well known like Hideo Kojima or Shigeru Miyamoto.
EVERY human in Vigrid is a potential angel incubator.When Bayonetta fights angels in Vigrid, all the outlines of humans disappear. And we see in the beginning that priests apparently sacrifice themselves to make angels. When someone is taken in to the Laguna faith, they have a spell placed upon them that harnesses their soul to create more angels.
Bayonetta's conception was The Plan on part of BOTH of her parents, though her birth was never planned.This is a bit of a long and very spoiler-y one, so stick with me here. - Ms Devin 92 Balder states that, for Bayonetta to become the Left Eye, she had to "see the world through the eyes of an innocent", which is why he had her encounter her younger self. But because of the Stable Time Loop, all Bayonetta's memories of her mother are actually her future personality. And the Eyes of the World were never stones at all; rather, they were people. The fact that one Eye belonged to each faction probably means that their power somehow manifested in the members of the different clans, but taking in to account Balder's exposition, it seems more likely that for each Eye to regain power, there had to be a unity of light, dark, and human- like the unity Jubileus is supposed to signify.
Rodin is this universe's equivalent of none other than Lucifer.Throughout the course of the game, as you know, Rodin does nothing but sell you things and say he's only in this for himself. But as most of us probably know by know, once you give him enough halos in-game, it's revealed that he's actually a fallen angel who wants to get back into Paradiso. A fallen angel, who wants to get back into Heaven...where have I heard this before? Normally this would be a really out-there theory considering Bayonetta's fully capable of curb-stomping Father Rodin when he transformed, but as one notation in the main Bayonetta entry adds- he was considered to be so powerful at one time, even Jubileus feared him. Now who does Jubileus, who is basically God, have to fear, besides Bayonetta? How about the traditional enemy of God?
Alternatively, Bayonetta is Shinji's perspective of his life as he nearly goes through and ultimately rejects Human Instrumentality, put through the lens of Jungian psychology and major amounts of camp.
Bayonetta is an Exalt.The crazy, over-the-top action, the incredible power, come on, you know what it adds up to. Specifically, she's an Infernal. All of the various Crowning Moments of Awesome in the game are three-die stunts, and the final cutscene implies that she starts taking Heresy charms.
All the Angels Bayonetta fought...... were rebelling against against the real Lord Almighty. They were unsatisfied with this balance between light and darkness and felt they should rule. Jubileus was their leader and their Creator, but not the creator of all things. Needless to say, after beatdowns from Bayonetta, they went the way of Lucifer... without the power.
No character in Bayonetta is supposed to be the equivalent of any public domain figure unless stated otherwise.This game's protagonist is a witch who made a deal with the devil for power and will be tortured in hell for the rest of existence when she eventually dies. If Sega wanted to avoid controversy by renaming some real religious figures, too late! Yes, Cleopatra is still a witch, yes Sheba is female in this story, but Jubileus is not God and Rodin is not the Devil. In addition to qualities that conflict with scripture's take on God, Jubileus is classified as an angel. Rodin speaks of the Devil in third person several times, as if he is someone else and "he" probably isn't a giant lady either. Inferno is not the hell Jesus warned of and Paradiso is not his heaven, they are the result of Jubileus breaking the world into three pieces during a fight, as stated several times in the game. This applies to Devil May Cry too. Mudus is not the Devil, Mundus is just a big ambitious demon named Mundus.
But that may mean Balder is Balder.Bayonetta borrows as much from political medieval writings and Norse Mythology as it does from The Bible. Now Norse gods were hard to kill but still died. Balder's death singled the end of the world but his rebirth signaled the start of a new one. Balder wasn't always a nice guy either, until later medieval writers turned him into a Christ figure because he represented light. If he isn't Balder, the game's plot lucked into some symbolism.
Chakratarvin is either Jubileus's Husband or Father.Both characters in appearance are visually based on Hindu gods, so it makes sense that they are related. Both also share the Title of Creator. Chakravatin is Obviously the stronger of the two and likely only rivaled by Queen Sheba herself (And Asura himself, too).
The Left Eye and Right Eye are titles passed down from person-to-person throughout the clans, with the powers included.Most likely the stone that Bayonetta has and the alleged Right Eye gem act more like power amplifiers, that its respective Eye must have come into contact with. Also in the case of the Umbra Witch Clan and how they handle who gets to be the clan leader, it would make sense for the victor of the fight to also gain the right to become the Left Eye, explaining why Bayonetta possesses "the most beloved of Umbran Treasures".
Jubileus and Sheba are one, the later's power is embodied by the left eye and darkness in this world is plain more powerful.Like many have stated, there is this possibility that Sheba was born from the darkness purged from Jubileus when the realms split. I think the reason behind the left eye of the darkness is precisely that, it controls the dark part of creation which rules hell. Bayonetta has both light and dark blood besides being the left eye, that means that she was the main source of power in the resurrection plot. Balder is weaker than Bayonetta, the light he wields is just the smaller part of the original being whereas humanity's wickedness and the rather derranged world diverted most of the original power to Sheba. If the resurrection was complete with Bayonetta, it's possible that the resulting being would have Jubileus righteous mind and Sheba's sheer power. It also makes you think why there was an Armageddon in the first place, maybe the original Jubileus got to much corrupt to wield her own power and broke herself apart.
Umbra Witches are the offspring of Witches and human males, Lumen Sages are human females and SagesSince these respective orders seem to be gender restricted, but (at least in Bayonetta's case) seemingly hereditary this must be the only option. Witch-born males are human, and Sage-born females are also human.
Bayonetta 2 will lob a number of Take ThatsNamely, to Sega for a number of mismanagements of P*'s properties and to fans who are protesting its Wii U exclusivity.
The person in white from the Bayonetta 2 teaser is a Lumen Sage.The white cloak uses something similar to Witch Time in order to slice up Bayo's bullets. Lumen Sages have a Witch Time-like ability called Lightspeed Dash. Also, white cloak.
In Bayonetta 2, Bayonetta will end up in a boss battle with The Metatron.Makes sense that she would end up fighting the strongest warrior of heaven.
Bayonetta actually thinks more of Luka than she lets on.She always called him Cheshire and he got annoyed at that. Though if you remember Cereza having a makeshift cat that she always carried around, I have come up with two conclusions: a) Bayonetta thinks of Luka as something she can play with, and b) He's someone that she wants to always keep close to her. It might seem a little crazy, but that's what WMGs are for.
The white-cloaked figure from the Bayonetta 2 trailers is Bayo's brother.Think about it. It's possible that Balder and Rosa had twins, but chose to only reveal one to their clans; if having one child together meant becoming exiled, the punishment for two would certainly be death. The second child was passed off as the son of another Lumen Sage and his true heritage was never revealed. This also keeps true if the above WMG about the offspring of Sages and Witches is true; since the male twin was the son of a Lumen Sage, he is also a Lumen Sage. If this is true, co-op play with both Bayo and her brother might be present in Bayonetta 2 (assuming he makes a Heel-Face Turn; the second player character could be controlled with the touchscreen game pad.)
A Lumen Sage will be playable in Bayonetta 2.The one from the trailer? Perhaps. Now that Jeanne is no longer under the sages' mind control and is most certainly on Bayonetta's side, we need a new rival, and who could fill that role? Why not the mysterious figure from the trailer? And, just like in the first game, he could become a playable character like Jeanne was.
Potential for Squid?We all know that reality is split into 3, Paradiso (Light), Inferno (Dark) and Pirgatorio (Chaos). There are of course Angels and Demons. And the in game spiel says stuff lives in Purgatorio. So will the really Eldritch Abominations show up later?
