Intelligence: As the Left Eye of the World, Bayonetta was destined for greatness from the moment of her birth, becoming an incredibly skillful and powerful Umbra Witch. A master of the Bullet Arts, she effortlessly wields virtually any weapon she obtains as an extension of her own body, being able to wield up to four firearms with pinpoint accuracy with both her hands and feet as well as use a variety of whips, swords, chainsaws, scythes, and other melee equipment with ease. She is also an expert at hand-to-hand combat, matching both her Umbran Sister Jeanne and the Lumen Sage in close-quarters and going so far as to slice up the tentacles of Iustitia with her bare hands while suplexing Fortitudo during their battle. She also slaughters countless angels every day to maintain her many Faustian contracts with the demons she summons, being more worried about her Sunday dress than facing the totality of Paradiso's forces by the modern day. However, her vast experience and sadistic streak have made her overconfident at times, and thus she can be caught off guard when some can potentially match her in combat, such as Loptr and the Lumen Sage.
Weaknesses: Can be somewhat Overconfident and sadistic at times | Requires the help of a second Umbra Witch to summon Queen Sheba | Requires the help of Balder to summon Omne
- Witch Time: The Umbra Witch's version of Temporal Control, Witch Time is an ability that allows Bayonetta to slow down time around her to a near stop, to the point that projectiles are nearly motionless and extensive battles can take place in a matter of seconds. This allows the user to bypass their opponent's defenses and execute combinations of attacks and other feats that would otherwise be impossible to do in normal speed. Bayonetta also can stack Witch Time over itself to further increase its potency.
- Umbran Climax: Techniques that allow Bayonetta to enter into an ascended state of power. Both techniques allow her to continually manifest the limbs of various infernal demons and increase her damage output. In Umbran Climax, she also gains the capability to perform "Infernal Weaves" and even recover her health while in that state.
- Wicked Weaves: A technique that can be executed by powerful Umbra Witches to summon forth Infernal Demons by using their hair as a conduit. Bayonetta's Wicked Weaves usually summon the massive limbs of Madama Butterfly, the demoness she has made a pact with, though she is entirely capable of using any of the demons under her command in conjunction with this technique. Wicked Weaves significantly increase the power of Bayonetta's attacks, and become more powerful still the farther into a combo a Wicked Weave is produced.
- Infernal Weaves: A significantly more powerful variant of Wicked Weaves accessable while Bayonetta has powered up into Umbran Climax. In addition to using normal Wicked Weaves for every attack, the end of combos cause Infernal Weaves to fully manifest the Infernal Demons for extreme damage in a large area-of-effect.
- Torture Attacks: A special ability allows Bayonetta to summon ancient devices that werr once used to torture her fellow Witches during the Witch Hunts, giving her the ability to use them instead on her enemies. These attacks range from an iron maiden, decapitation by guillotine, placing them into a grinder, burning them, hanging them, crushing them to death, and pulling out a chainsaw to bisect foes.
- Charge Bullet: A technique that charges Bayonetta's guns as she fires normally, imbuing her bullets with more magic and as a result making them much more powerful.
- Umbran Portal Kick: Bayonetta instantly summons a portal under herself and dives or falls into it, shortly reappearing in the air and then crashing back to the ground while posing, damaging all close enemies. This technique is also useful as a quick means of odging an attack.
- Beast Within: A series of transformational techniques that Bayonetta can use to shapeshift into different animals that grant her new abilities.
- Panther Within: Bayonetta transforms into a black panther, granting her increased movement speed and longer jumps.
- Crow Within: Bayonetta transforms into a large crow, giving her the ability to fly for a short period of time and shoot homing feathers.
- Umbran Spear: Bayonetta transforms into a crow and darts towards her target at incredible speed to deal damage while also staggering the target.
- Bat Within: A defensive technique that, by successfully dodging an attack at the very last second, briefly transforms Bayonetta into a flock of bats and push away nearby enemies. Witch Time will also activate once Bayonetta reforms.
- Snake Within: Bayonetta transforms into a long cobra that allows her to glide through underwater locations whenever this is activated. This form acts as an underwater equivalent to Panther Within.
- Infernal Kiss: Bayonetta blows a kiss, sending a trio of heart-shaped projectiles at the target, an otherwise impassible angelic seal. This opens a small portal to Inferno that shatters the seal.
- Heart Shot: A variation of Infernal Kiss that allows Bayonetta to shatter barriers by launching several bullets at them in a heart-shaped formation.
- Witch Walk: A Dark Arts technique utilized by all Umbra Witches that allows them ignore the pull of gravity to walk on vertical and upside-down surfaces.
- Mechanical Augmentation: Using her magic and her middle finger as a key, Bayonetta can increase the capacity at which a vehicle can operate, or overload it and cause it to explode.
- After Burner Kick: An aerial technique in which Bayonetta flies toward an opponent and deliver a flaming kick for extra damage.
- Witch Twist: An aerial attack that is designed to launch small or staggered enemies airborne. Bayonetta drops to her knees and spins on the ground before suddenly twisting and launching herself skyward. She can also fire her guns into the air while twisting.
- Tetsuzanko: A technique with any hand-mounted weapon that allows Bayonetta to instantly perform a forward slam attack that knocks enemies up and away from her.
- Heel Stomp: Tetsuzanko's sister technique that Bayonetta can use with any weapons equipped on her feet.
- Stiletto: A technique used for simultaneously closing the distance between Bayonetta and her target whilst also attacking them, with varying effects depending on the weapons she is holding in her hands.
- Heel Slide: A technique similar to Stiletto used for simultaneously closing distance between Bayonetta and her target whilst also attacking them by using the weapon equipped to her feet. In comparison to Stiletto, Heel Slide is faster, does much more damage on average and goes a lot farther. Unlike Stiletto however, it cannot be executed in mid-air.
- Break Dance: Bayonetta twirls around on her back while shooting her weapons at surrounding foes, finishing off with a pose.
- Bullet Climax: A technique that allows Bayonetta to perform a variety of spinning attacks that differ depending on the weapons being used. When used with a projectile weapon, Bullet Climax allows Bayonetta to fire the guns rapidly from either her hands or feet. When used in the air, using Bullet Climax will cause Bayonetta to rapidly twirl and send bullets out in all directions. When used with melee weapons, Bayonetta performs a powerful spin attack with the said weapon. Depending on the size of the weapon, the attack is either comprised of multiple spins with average attack power or a single spin with massive knockback that sends enemies flying.
- Infernal Demons: Infernal Demons are the supernatural inhabitants of Inferno that can be summoned by Umbra Witches as part of their role of maintaining the darkness. These demons bestow witches with great power and wisdom and are mainly used to fight and hunt down the angels. Bayonetta summons these demons by chanting a phrase to finish off the enemy for good, though if she reaches a high enough level of spiritual energy, such as that within Umbran Climax, she can summon demons as casually as with the snap of her fingers.
- Madama Butterfly: Also known as the Mistress Of Atrocity, she is the demoness whom Bayonetta has made a pact with to use her power in combat. A demon taking the form of a woman who left this world under unfortunate circumstances, only to be reincarnated in Hell. Unlike her beautiful, swallowtail butterfly-like appearance, this demon is particularly brutal, and her reputation is well known even amongst the denizens of Inferno. If a conjurer were to sign a contract and trade her soul, the demon would impart upon her enormous power and great wisdom.
- Gomorrah: Also known as the Devourer of the Divine, it is an Infernal Demon and one of the primary demons Bayonetta summons in the first game. A colossal, demonic dragon-like reptilian beast, Gomorrah attacks by biting, gnawing, and devouring any enemy it is set upon.
- Malphas: A large crow demon that appears initially as an ally to finish off aerial enemies and then later give Bayonetta the power of flight. Malphas' raven like appearance heavily ties it to the Umbra Witches and the mythical treasures they left behind.
- Hekatoncheir: Also known as the Shatterer of the Earth, it is an unseen demon with large, powerful arms capable of shattering mountains. Lacking knowledge, but brimming with brutality, it is said that even the most powerful of conjurers should take heed of the danger this beast presents.
- Scolopendra: Also known as the Eradicator of Paradise, it is an immensely long and slithering centipede demon. Hailing from Frejentonta, a river of boiling blood in the depths of Inferno, rumors speak of its body exceeding ten kilometers in length. Moving unlike anything its size, its deftness allows it to wrap around and constrict its prey in the blink of an eye.
- Phantasmaraneae: Also known as the Twister of Flame, it is a large and terrifying arachnid demon that can summon small versions of itself to tear apart and devour enemies.
- Labolas: Also known as the Destroyer Of Fates, it is an Infernal Demon that makes its first appearance in Bayonetta 2. A beloved pet dog who had the bad luck to wander into hell, but the good luck and survival instincts to get through its harsh environment and grow into a force to be reckoned with. With the superb hunting abilities, it has even become known to some as a merciless butcher. Once it has sunk its sharp canines into its enemy, it will not let go until their last breath.
- Mictlantecuhtli: Also known as the Presser of Destruction, it is a bat demon that Bayonetta can summon in Bayonetta 2. Lurking in one of the darkest and deepest of Inferno's endless caves, it is said to leave trails of the plague wherever it goes.
- Baal: Also known as the Empress of the Fathoms, she is a large toad demon that appears in Bayonetta 2 and a royal inhabitant of Inferno. Concealing her form under most circumstances, she appears as a gigantic toad when summoned. Baal's enormous, wobbly body is too heavy for her to control, giving her a disadvantage in the heat of battle; however, she possesses an endlessly extending tongue that can reach the far ends of the battlefield and swallow up opponents within an instant.
- Hydra: Also known as the Spinner of Destiny, she is a gorgon-like demon that appears as an ally in Bayonetta 2. A once beautiful maiden who was banished to hell for the sins of her younger sister and mutilated into a snakelike monster with seven heads. Her human heart has long since been lost, and she viciously attacks anything she deems an enemy.
- Diomedes: Also known as the Severer of the Dark, is a giant fanged horse demon with a large blade protruding from its forehead like a unicorn that appears in Bayonetta 2. One of the four man-eating horses that were owned by the ruler of a fallen kingdom. With the demise of the kingdom, the horses were murdered and arrived in hell. Of the four, the soul of one inherited the name of the king and was reborn as a demon.
- Queen Sheba: The Infernal Demon tasked with the role of the ruler of Inferno. She is a giant Demon of incredible size and cosmic power. She is the opposite of Jubileus, though are both assumed to be in equal power. Bayonetta initially required the assistance of another Umbra Witch (Jeanne) to fully summon Sheba, but at the end of Bayonetta 2, she was able to summon Sheba by herself as part of Omne when working in tandem with Balder. She has enough power to punch Jubileus' soul straight into the sun in 70 seconds when they were at the edge of our Solar System and also shatter any planet within our solar system.
- Omne: Also known as the Controller of Creation, she is a fusion of angel and demon and is the final summon used in Bayonetta 2. An omniscient being formed by a miraculous unison of the powers of Paradiso and Inferno. The past leaders of the Umbra and Lumen clans, though they were aware of Omne's existence, were unable to summon it to this realm. It took the combined power of light and darkness, united in the bond of father and daughter, to finally summon Omne successfully. Possessing the qualities of both darkness and light, it can defeat even the most dissonant of chaos.
