[top]Tips and Strategies

  • This guide is in XMB order, remember this if you are wondering about a hidden trophy.
  • All weapons, Halos, Accessories,kills, and collectibles you find will carry over to every difficulty you play so don't worry, if you miss something you can always get it on your next playthrough.
  • If you equip the Durga on your feet and make sure they are flaming you can walk on the broken parts of the ground that have lava showing and not take any damage.
  • The flaming Angels will damage you if you try to hit them with any weapon that requires close quarters combat EXCEPT the flaming Durga on your hands, feet, or both. During Witch time the flames go out making them easier to hit.
  • Use the Kulshedra against the flying angels that look like Manta Rays by jumping with and then grab them with the whip by pressing and holding , then execute this combo while in the air which will end in a Wicked Weave slap that will hit any in the way.
  • At the end of your hard playthrough you will unlock the Eternal Testimony accessory which will regenerate your magic meter, which can be very effective on the Infinite Climax difficulty, but it costs 500,000 halos so don't spend all your money on too many sexy outfits.
  • Keep a good stock at the beginning of each level of the attack, defense, and health lollipops and a Red Hot Shot in case you need them in the game. You can only buy so many at a time for your inventory, but you can make more even if the store says your full.
  • Most of the cutscenes involving the introduction of enemies to add to your files will result in them immediately sneak attacking you, so as soon as the cutscene ends dodge immediately to avoid damage.
  • Pay attention to quick cutscenes that will involve a quick button press to avoid damage or to dodge. The game is NOT very forgiving in the time it gives you to press the correct button so try to remember them for your next playthroughs to save time and deaths.
  • Alfheim Portals and collectables are not available on difficulties lower than Normal so if you are playing on easy for cleanup trophies don't expect to find them where they are normally located.
  • There are several cheat codes for this game,however, I like to make cheat free guides so I will not be listing them. You can google Bayonetta cheats to find them if you want to know what they are.

Fortitudo, Bringer Of Flame
Defeat Fortitudo on any difficulty


Fortitudo, is the Angel with the two dragon heads that you will face off against at the Coliseum, in Chapter 4. In the first stage, you will start on top of the bridge with him in front of you. Dodge to the left and right as he is about to bite at you to engage witch time then perform combos from the side of his head. If he spins for a tail attack dodge his tail as it comes around. If he charges up to shoot a fireball at you dodge the first to engage witch time then you can hit the second fireball back at him by pressing the during witch time.If you fall off the bridge the floor will most likely have lava in between the islands of rock to stand on. From here you can still battle the same way or you can grab the Hourglass and climb back up the bridge and let go of it to rebuild the bridge. Remember if you have the Flame Durga on your feet you can walk on the lava!! After a couple good combos he will fall to the ground with stars over his head. Jump down to the floor of the coliseum and hit him with a four or five hit combo then press + to grab him and mash the button to slam him by his head causing good damage. You will then get a chance to get in a few more hits after the cinematic. Now you will most likely be on the ground with him. He will perform the bite and flame ball attacks and a new attack. When he jumps dodge quickly with and he will get his heads stuck in the ground allowing you to get in some good combos while he's stuck. Continue this until he flies to the outside of the arena, when he does this just run, and don't stop, sideways from one side of the coliseum to the other to avoid the attack until the witch time jumping game begins. Jump across the rocks until you get to the end then press + to grab him. You will then have three button mashing sequences with the that will end in him getting a dragon head ripped off and drug to hell.

The second stage begins with him turning the floor to lava again with islands of rock. Remember the tip with the Durga and use the same methods against his attacks that are the same.Eventually the lava will go away and the floor will come back and then he will eventually fly back to the side for another jumping game and another three button mashing sequences with the to rip his other dragon head off to be drug to hell.

The third stage involves fighting on the broken coliseum in the sky. He has a big pink jewel in the middle of his head that you must attack. He has a couple new attacks now. The first one he gets really close to the edge making him easy to hit about 4 times, but don't get greedy, after a few seconds he will thrust his tail into the floor under you, so get in some hits then dodge with after his 3 tail thrusts you can get in a few more hits until he backs away. When he backs far away he will dash very fast at the edge, dodge away then get in some more hits. He will also shoot flames at you and his mouth will glow before he does this making it easy to dodge. If he flies above he is going to smash down on you. There will be a marking on the floor where he will land, dodge away then hit him when lands. Once his energy is gone he will try a tail spin on you. Don't dodge!! Press + to grab his tail and begin your Climax finishing move. Once he is defeated you will receive your trophy.

Temperantia, Manipulator Of Wind
Defeat Temperantia on any difficulty


Temperantia, is the angel you will face in chapter 7 The Cardinal Virtue of Temperance. You will start on a small stone island floating in the air. From here he has a couple attacks. With the first attack, he will grab the island with one hand, and you will see a shiny red jewel that you need to hit to cause damage, and he will shoot at you with his other hand. Try to stand behind the hand that isn't shooting while attacking and the projectiles should miss you. Another attack that he does involves grabbing the island then shooting large projectiles that will destroy the island. Now pay attention to your commands you should see a command to jump off this island. If you do you will escape unharmed. Another attack he does is draw his fist back and it will glow then smash down on the island. Dodge his fist smash to avoid damage. Damage or not, your witch time will start and you will have a certain time limit to either jump to safety or jump next to one of the trollies that are in the windstorm and press + to grab it and throw it at him for damage. This will also stun him and you can jump over to him and get in some free hits. Continue this until he draws back his electrified hand to smash the island and you will eventually see the evade command with the +. When you do this you will jump on his arm. Avoid the wind dragons on his arm and move to where his armpit is and you will see a red jewel to attack. While you are attacking watch for the blue daggers that appear in the air and press to dodge them then continue your attack, also watch for a blue power surge that will hit you and press to dodge that as well. Remember these two things as they will be his attacks when you move to his body as well. Continue attacking his arm jewel until you can Climax finish it and then press + to start the Climax attack and button mash for more points.

The second stage he only has one arm so when he grabs your island he will either shoot wind dragons from his mouth or laser bolts from his eyes. Both are easily dodged with and continue to mash his grabbing hand. He will also use one finger to fire projectiles at you but they are easily avoided if you stand behind the fingers he's holding the island with. Eventually he will draw his electrified hand back and you will have the evade command again. Follow the same steps as the other arm to rip off this one as well.

The third stage you are on his body and there are several jeweled damage points to destroy. If you can't find one look for the energy bands in the air, they lead to them. Destroy them the same as the arms and watch out for the same attacks.

The fourth and final stage his head is finally vulnerable and he has a couple irritating attacks with it. The first he looks up and shoots several energy bolts from the jewel on his head which are easily dodged with .
The second he opens his mouth and an air dragon spirals out and around his head, so if you are jump attacking dodge away from his head. The third and most irritating he shoots a laser beam from his head and some grabbing things come out of his mouth while his head spins in a circle. If you get caught in his mouth, immediately rock the left stick to the left and right to get away and minimize your damage. The only benefit to this is once you get away his head will be dazed and you can get in some free combos. Keep attacking his head until you get the Climax finisher command. Press the + to finish him off and the trophy is yours

[top]
Iustitia, Giver Of Life
Defeat Iustitia on any difficulty


Iustitia, is the angel you will face in chapter 11, The Cardinal Virtue of Justice. In the first stage you will be on an island and he has a couple attacks. While you are dodging his attacks, you will want to attack the angel's head. The first attack he has will spray purple mist down onto the island which is easily avoided by moving to the edge of the island close to him. He will also throw a plant out of his mouth onto the island that will try to grab you and attack you. Destroy the plant and continue hitting the angels head. He will also take swipes at you with his plant arms. Avoid them with and continue to concentrate on his head. If he pulls his head back and his eyes glow he will thrust his head towards you and you can dodge with and engage witch time to slow down time to get in some good damage with combos. Eventually his head will fall down dazed, when this happens jump on top of his head and run towards the base avoiding the spikes that occasionally swirl around the neck. When you get close enough Bayonetta will jump kick the base to reveal his weak spot. Now from here jump with and use air combos to avoid his tentacle swipes. If you see both his hands flash he is going to smash them together and that will hit you. Press to dodge away then jump and continue your air combos. When his power gets low enough Bayonetta will enter a cutscene and finish off that face.

The second stage will start with him smashing islands with his tentacles. You can't avoid this and you will fall but when you do, and the tentacle hand tries to grab you press the + when the evade command appears to get away. From here continue your onslaught the same as the first stage as his attacks are the same. The only different attack will be him smashing his tentacles onto the island repeatedly and then he will smash down on it with his head. If you jump when he does this and start some air combo you can get in some hits before you fall. When you fall watch for the evade command to get back to your island. Eventually a tentacle will disappear, and at this point get ready, it will grab a rock and throw it at you. Press the + when the command appears then mash the to destroy the boulder with your Wicked Weave fists. Once you do this, his head will be dazed and you can jump on it and run to the base. Be careful this time as he has added spikes that must be jumped over on his neck as well. When you reach the base destroy it the same as the first.

The third stage starts the same as the second with the island smashing. This fight is exactly the same as the second with ONE BIG EXCEPTION. After you destroy the first boulder he throws at you be ready to press the + again because he immediately throws a second boulder at you. After the second boulder he is dazed again and you can move up the neck to destroy the base.

After you destroy the last one get ready because you will be on the island again and he will charge you. Press the + to engage your Climax Finisher and finish him off for the trophy

Sapentia, Controller Of Seas
Defeat Sapientia on any difficulty


Sapentia, is the angel you will face on Chapter 13, The Cardinal Virtue of Prudence and in my opinion is the easiest of all the bosses. On the first stage move your surfboard to his legs while avoiding his hand swipes by pressing and attack the faces on his shoulders. While you are doing this keep an eye on the top of each shoulder. If the disk pops up, he is firing missiles at you and be prepared to dodge them. Also watch the faces if their mouths open they are going to shoot a fireball and be prepared to dodge. Continue moving from shoulder to shoulder attacking the faces and dodging until two are destroyed. He will then jump underwater and try to attack you from underneath. When the water ripples press the to dodge his bite. When you see his shark fin coming at you, move away and when he jumps out of the water at you, dodge. Continue this pattern until all four shoulder faces are destroyed. Once all four are destroyed press the + to engage a Climax attack and then he runs away. Bayonetta chases him down and now you must steer him back to your demon by using the left stick and pressing the as the onscreen commands tell you. In the middle he will buck and you will have a command to press + to counter. If you are successful continue to steer him to your demon. If not find the one face that regenerates and destroy it to start this sequence again.

The second stage his face opens in the front for you to hit. When you are doing this watch for his arm swipes and his bite attacks that can be dodged with . Those and going underwater are his main attacks. Continue until you get the Climax command then steer him towards your demon again. This time, there will be two times that you must counter when he tries to buck you off while you are steering him. If you miss one this time you will attack his face to start the sequence again.

For the last stage he retreats underwater and creates a whirlpool. Ride down the whirlpool dodging the creatures in the water and the yellow beams that shoot out of his tongue until you get to his face. Once you get there you will see the pink jewel you must destroy. Watch his bite attacks and hand slams like the last stage and continue to hit him until he uses water to push you away. Now his tongue will just pop out of the water and shoot his yellow laser at you, dodge and continue as before on your way down to meet him. Continue this attack until you are given the Climax finisher command and finish him him off to receive your trophy.

Master Of The Heavens
Defeat Father Balder on any difficulty


Father Balder, is the leader of the Lumen Sages that you will face on chapter 16, The Lumen Sage. He has several attacks at his disposal. The first is a giant blue ball that will hold you in place for him to attack you. If this hits you rock the left stick back and forth until you are freed. He will also attack with a sword which is easy to dodge or avert. If he stands still and puts his hand up he is preparing to fire a laser beam at you, so be prepared to dodge. If he moves away and a ring appears in front of him he is preparing a dash attack so dodge away. He may also call for a satellite laser strike so if he does this be prepared to jump to a new island by pressing in the time alotted. Another attack involves a ring of fire orbs which are easily enough dodged because they flash when they attack. When his power is low enough start your Climax attack and be prepared for the next stage.

The next stage is more of the same attacks but he has also added a lava flume strike from underneath that flashes the spot on the ground before striking. He may also throw a skyscraper from the city at you so be prepared to press + to evade and then mash the for more points. When his power is low enough call your next Climax finisher on him.

The final stage is the same attacks but he may also throw his satellite down at you. If this happens follow the onscreen commands to dodge it. When his power is low enough press the Climax command prompt. For this Climax you must control the lipstick bullet to hit him in the head. Use the left stick to steer it at him and try to avoid the glass shards. If you must hit a shard try to hit it in the middle to minimize the change of trajectory. Hit him in the target on his head to finish him and claim your trophy

[top]
Feels Good, Doesn't It?
Execute 50 Torture Attacks


For this trophy you must perform 50 Torture Attacks during the course of play. This trophy is cumulative throughout all your playthroughs on any difficulty so if you don't receive it on your Normal runthrough you will most likely receive it sometime during your Hard playthrough. These are the Torture Attacks I've seen and the button mash to go with them, if I have missed any let me know.

  • Iron Maiden: A chamber filled with spikes on every wall used when you are facing most enemies mash
  • Guillotine: A wooden block with a razor sharp blade on top used when the enemy has their back turned to you, mash
  • Horse and Chain:A wooden horse and chain used to hold an enemy in place and choke them, I've only seen it used against Joy Angels, mash
  • Chain and Pulley: A chain connected to a pulley to hang an enemy, used when your are in the air and perform a torture move on a flying enemy, mash
  • Chainsaw: A chainsaw used to cut the enemy in half, I've only seen this used against the Manta Ray flying angels, mash
  • Tombstone/Weight: is a torture attack performed when an enemy is lying on the ground. Hands come up from the ground and hold the enemy, then either a Tombstone or a giant weight drops on top of them, mash
  • Hand Vice: which can only be performed on the enemies Grace, Glory, Gracious, and Glorious. Bayonetta summons a giant vise made of two big hands to crush the enemy. You have to rotate the Left Analog Stick for this attack.
  • Spike Wheel: A giant wheel with Spikes that Bayonetta uses against Fairness Angels, Mash

[top]
You Want To Touch Me?
Engage Witch Time Successfully 10 times


Witch time is engaged when you press the button to dodge just before an enemy attack. You can usually tell when an enemy is attacking because most will have a tell, either a large windup, or a flash, etc. When you engage Witch time successfully, time slows and the screen gets dark but you still move in full speed. For this trophy simply engage witch time 10 times throughout all your playthroughs.

[top]
Nice Try
Engage Witch Time succesfully 10 times consecutively


For this trophy you must engage Witch time 10 times consecutively without being hit or averting/countering any attacks. It doesn't count against you if you just dodge the attack. There is a very easy place to obtain this during the regular progression of the story so there is really no need to go out of your way for it. On Chapter 9 Verse 4 you must run down this spiral rockway while the Golem chases you in rock form. While you are running there will be several lightning bolts that touch down on the ground for you to dodge to engage Witch time so you can keep a safe distance from the Golem. There are about 13 strikes so if you dodge them all or miss one or two at the beginning or end you will get the trophy without trying. If you mess up in the middle let the Golem roll over you before you get to the bottom and you will start up top from the checkpoint.

[top]
Platinum!
Earn 10 Platinum Medals. Must be earned in 10 different battles


For this trophy you must earn 10 Platinum or Pure Platinum medals for battles during the course of all your playthroughs. This is not for your performance at the end of each level just for the little medal at each checkpoint she unlocks with a kiss. This is cumulative for all playthroughs and it doesn't matter what difficulty level you play on for them, but they have to be in different battle sections if you get a Platinum in the same battle on a different difficulty it will still only count as one!. To get Platinums you need a good combination of combo hits, speed finishing the section, and not getting hit. You can view your Play History in the submenu by pressing at the beginning of every level to count your Platinums and see how many more you need.

[top]
Double, Double, Toil And Trouble
Create 20 Concoctions


As you are playing and destroying things looking for Halos, you will notice other items come out of destroyed objects as well. The Green (Mandragora Root), Yellow (Baked Gecko), and Pink (Unicorn Horn) ones are ingredients used to concoct Lollipops to be used as items.To concoct items go to your item screen and press on the D-Pad. Here you will see the Witches recipes and how many of each item you need to make them. Hold down the button to fill the meter of the selected ingredient to the desired amount and press the or on the D-pad to select other ingredients. Once you are ready an onscreen prompt will appear that tells you to move the right stick in a counter-clockwise manner and the item you will be making will be flashing on the left. Turn the stick until it is done and there is your new item. Make 20 items of anything even the same thing and the trophy is yours. Here is the list of items and how many ingredients you will need for each. I recommend just making the Yellow, Green, and Pink lollipops as they will be what you use the most.

  • Green Herb Lollipop : 10 green
  • Mega Green Herb Lollipop: 15 green
  • Bloody Rose Lollipop: 10 pink
  • Mega Bloody Rose Lollipop: 15 pink
  • Yellow Moon Lollipop: 10 yellow
  • Mega Yellow Moon Lollipop: 15 yellow
  • Purple Magic Lollipop: 5 green, 5 pink
  • Mega Purple Magic Lollipop: 10 green, 5 pink
  • Magic Flute: 10 green, 10 pink, 10 yellow

Tread Not So Softly
Kill an enemy by jumping on top of them


There are two ways to get this trophy either jump off of something really high and land on an enemy or jump and then press again on top of a weakened enemy to double jump off of them. If either of these result in a kill you will get the trophy. You will probably get this on accident just by jumping around during battle like I did, but if not just practice the double jump method and if you are really having trouble bump the level down and get the trophy on easy.

Nice And Relaxed
Avert 10 enemy attacks with the Moon of Mahaa-Kalaa equipped


The Moon of Mahaa-Kalaa is an accessory you can purchase in the Gates of Hell for 200,000 Halos and should be your first "BIG" purchase of the game because it is very effective in battle. Once you purchase it go to the Weapons screen and press on the D-Pad to equip accessories, then press to equip it. Just before an enemy attacks you press towards them with the left stick and a black ring will appear indicating that you have averted their attack. Avert 10 attacks during all your playthroughs to attain this trophy.

[top]
Touch And It Will Hurt
Counter 10 enemy attacks with the Moon of Mahaa-Kalaa equipped


The Moon of Mahaa-Kalaa is an accessory you can purchase in the Gates of Hell for 200,000 Halos and should be your first "BIG" purchase of the game because it is very effective in battle. Once you purchase it go to the Weapons screen and press on the D-Pad to equip accessories, then press to equip it. A counter is different than an Avert attack and is done by pressing the left stick towards the enemy at the exact moment of their attack. They say that the Rose you occasionally see on screen is when you're supposed to perform the counter but I could never get that to work. You will know if you have performed a successful counter because she will block and immediately attack and engage Witch time. Perform 10 of these over the course of all your playthroughs to attain this trophy.

[top]
Touch And It Will REALLY Hurt
Counter three enemy attacks consecutively with the Moon of Mahaa-Kalaa equipped


The Moon of Mahaa-Kalaa is an accessory you can purchase in the Gates of Hell for 200,000 Halos and should be your first "BIG" purchase of the game because it is very effective in battle. Once you purchase it go to the Weapons screen and press on the D-Pad to equip accessories, then press to equip it. A counter is different than an Avert attack and is done by pressing the left stick towards the enemy at the exact moment of their attack. They say that the Rose you occasionally see on screen is when you're supposed to perform the counter but I could never get that to work. You will know if you have performed a successful counter because she will block and immediately attack and engage Witch time. For this trophy you must perform 3 of these in a row without getting hit or averting any attacks. On Normal difficulty on the First level, when you encounter your first Witch Time statue there are three easy angels to get this trophy against. Easy meaning they have a very obvious "tell" for their attacks, to time the counter and there are only three so they won't overwhelm you and hit you while you are trying to get the counters. After 3 in a row you will get the trophy.

Tip from Agent Oranje: This is a tip for the 3 counters in a row trophy in Bayonetta. After getting the moon of Maha Kalaa I went to the Gates of Hell and tried out the Bat Within technique. Since the enemy attacks you there, you can just keep countering his moves.

A taunt is performed by either quick tapping the for a quick taunt or holding for a longer taunt. Each weapon has a different taunt and it is fun to see them all. You will know if you have successfully angered an enemy because they will turn orange and they will have increased attack and they will become more aggressive. There are two ways to get this trophy, You can taunt 5 enemies in a row and kill them without taking any damage, or you can purchase the Gaze of Despair accessory for 100,000 Halos from the Gates of Hell and all the enemies will spawn already angered while you are wearing it. Either way once you have killed 5 in a row angered enemies without damage the trophy is yours.

Alfheim Portals Strategies

  • You can do the Alfheim Portals whenever you want so everyone will have their own strategy for them, I waited until after I was done with all my playthroughs to do them and used the Pillow Talk weapon which was awesome in them.
  • Remember you have to be on Normal or higher difficulty to do Alfheim Portals but this being said the enemies will be stronger on higher difficulty levels
  • For Witch Time rooms if the enemies aren't being aggressive enough for you to engage Witch Time and take care of business in the time limit provided try equipping the Gaze of Despair
  • Unless you have the Kulshedra weapon you won't be able to do the Stay in the air rooms
  • In the Wicked Weave rooms the Shuraba counts as a weave attack by pressing for combos and is VERY effective
  • In the Out Of Body Experience rooms use either the Shuraba's charged attack or attack or the charged Pillow Talk attack to clear the enemies away from you
  • In any room that has a Beloved let them swing their big ass axes and take enemies out for you. There is one room in particular where there are the little guys that make a big guy if you don't kill them quick enough. Let them make one big guy and then just dodge around the outside of the room and let the big guys take each other out until there is one left and then take him out.
  • In the Limited punches and Kicks rooms use either the Shuraba or the Pillow Talk's charge attacks to cause major damage and minimize your swings.

A Mother's Love
Defend Cereza during the out of body experience, ensuring she takes no damage


In Chapter 6 you will finally catch up to Cereza and you will have to protect her in an "out of body" experience. Cereza will be in a protective shield. Equip your sword and use combos to keep enemies away from her. This is different form the Alfheim portal as most of the enemies will concentrate on Bayonetta. Very seldom will they go straight for her. Continue to slash them with your sword ensuring nobody hits her with a stray hit and if she survives unscathed the trophy is yours.

Fire The Afterburners
Earn Platinum medals during Verse 1 and Verse 2 of Chapter 14


On Verses 1 and 2 of chapter 14 you will be riding on a rocket. You need to obtain Platinum or Pure Platinum status at the end of both of these level to unlock this trophy. You can perform this on any difficulty level even easy! According to Wunderkid who got the Platinum medals on different difficulties and did not get the trophy you need to get these on the same difficulty level by playing the two levels consecutively. I recommend a lower difficulty level because the enemies won't shoot at you as much. you can dodge on the rocket by pressing so fire off a few shots then dodge all their incoming fire. You can only get hit once or twice and still obtain the Platinum rank so make sure you use the dodge if you are in doubt. At the end of each Verse their will be a boss battle, with Fortitudo for Verse 1 and then with Temperantia for Verse 2, to make these easier consume a Mega Bloody Rose Lollipop to raise your attack and a Mega Yellow Moon Lollipop to make you invincible and just fire away with and which uses magic to fire a Wicked Weave missile. If you stop flashing yellow, your shield has run out and you ARE NOT invincible anymore so be sure to dodge if they aren't dead. Once you get Platinums on both the trophy is yours.

Just In The Nick Of Time
Dodge the runaway streetcar during Chapter 2


In Chapter 2 after the first cutscene and square battle when the Beloved Angel runs away, you will enter an alley with a streetcar in it. As you progress down the alley there will be another cutscene that shows a streetcar come off its tracks and come towards you. Jump over this streetcar with the button to avoid it and the trophy is yours.
