* BondOneLiner: Uniquely, she tends to drop a few of these when using her smashes, such as accompanying her up smash with a casual "Ta-Ta!" or shouting "Get out!" when using her forward smash and standard attack respectively. She also has a PreAsskickingOneLiner in "[[TitleDrop Smashing!]]" when activating her [[LimitBreak Final Smash]].

(Palutena's BrutalHonesty about [[DraggedOffToHell the fate of angels Bayonetta defeats]] [[{{Troll}} does not help]].)

* {{Foil}}: To [[VideoGame/KidIcarus Palutena]]. Both are powerful female characters that use magic on their movesets one way or another and are on the heroic side, and were captured by Galeem and Dharkon to do their bidding, but they're still different like day and night. Bayonetta is a [[KillTheGod god-slayer]] and an [[AntiHero anti-heroine]], Palutena is a [[PhysicalGod goddess]] and a heroine. Bayonetta has [[DarkIsNotEvil a predominantly black, dark motif to her]], Palutena has [[LightIsGood a predominantly white, light motif to her]]. Bayonetta uses [[BadPowersGoodPeople Umbra (dark) Magic]] to conjure her moves, Palutena uses [[LightEmUp white magic]] to conjure hers. Bayonetta is a certified DeadpanSnarker and it can take a bit of time to actually see her true colors, Palutena is [[TheGadfly gadflyish]] and a NiceGirl who's benevolent to most people.



** She calls Palutena, a goddess of light, an "endangered species" -- referring to her killing Jubileus, who was also a goddess of light [[GodIsEvil (Albeit a very antagonistic one)]].

** Due to complaints made by the competitive ''Smash Bros.'' community, the Version 1.1.6 Update Patch was made, which applied a heavy amount of nerfs to Bayonetta, and ''only'' her. Some of the biggest nerfs were directed towards her [[DivingKick Downward Afterburner Kick]], changing the knockback angle and hitbox size to make it significantly less useful for starting combos.

* MightyGlacier: Unlike in other games, where Ryu is the most famous example of a JackOfAllStats, Ryu in ''Smash'' plays like a MightyGlacier. While his running speed is slightly above-average, matching Mario's, and he has one of the faster maximum air speeds, he has very limited mobility, due to two factors; he has the third-slowest walk in the game and has the worst aerial acceleration. The latter not only means it takes Ryu a long time to reach his maximum air speed, but more importantly, he can barely affect the direction of his midair drift, making his aerial movement extremely stiff and his jumps highly committal. He can use Focus cancels to abruptly change the direction he goes in the air, but it has quite a bit of startup to it. Ryu compensates, however, by being one of the most powerful characters in the game, having both highly damaging moves and many strong knockback moves throughout his moveset, with the best example being his invincible True Shoryuken that [=KOs=] between 70-90% from ground level ''before rage'', KO power that very few moves in the game can match/exceed without requiring charging, obscene startup lag, extreme precision, or some other miscellaneous factor that limits it. Nevermind that no other character in the game has such a powerful ready-to-use KO move that they can combo into so easily. Speaking of rage, with being one of the harder characters to KO in the game with his pretty heavy weight and decent recovery, Ryu is one of the most feared rage abusers in the game, with True Shoryuken being capable of [=KOing=] ''below 50%'' when Ryu is at max rage. And while Ryu's mobility is limited, his moves have excellent frame data, with most of them being very fast in both startup and ending lag, while having surprisingly far reach. Overall, it's difficult for Ryu to get in, but when he does, he'll rack up damage at a ridiculous rate and can easily KO his foes in the blink of an eye.

* TheUnfought: Barring DLC, Cloud is the only character in the World of Light that isn't a vessel for any enemy spirits. That being said, you still have to battle him (which is a mandatory fight) when you recruit him [[spoiler:and he'll still be part of Darkhon's clone army regardless, most notably being one of the eight looping characters during Master Hand's playable stage]]. He also ''does'' show up as a vessel for [[VideoGame/SuperSmashBrosForNintendo3DSAndWiiU Master Edges]] and [[VideoGame/XenobladeChronicles2 Zeke]] on the Spirit Board, albeit that still makes him the character with the least amount of Spirit fights in the game.
