WUPP AQU Item02-Pulleys Butterfly R ad

Pulley's Butterfly

Description: It is said that long ago, the witch Turandot crafted this treasure while in the service of the Queen of Lhasa, hoping that the butterfly would give users divine protection. Butterflies of Protection flutter around the bracelet's user, absorbing attacks on their behalf before breaking up.
Activation: Hold PunchLarge+KickLarge Requires at least four Magic Gauge Orbs to activate.
Effect: Once activated, Pulley's Butterfly will summon a small rabble of glowing butterflies. As long as the butterflies are up they will absorb damage for Bayonetta, depleting her magic gauge orbs instead of her health. While the butterflies are active they also drain the magic gauge slowly. While using it, Bayonetta can't activate Bat Within, because it demands the player to be hit.

Infernal CommunicatorEdit

Unlock: Bayonetta - Purchase at the Gates of Hell for 100,000 halos
              Bayonetta 2 - Purchase at the Gates of Hell for 100,000 halos
Description: Used to summon the infamous band of demon youth known as the "Little Devils," this item allows communication with these residents of Purgatorio. By using this magical device, one is able to temporarily contract the "Little Devils," calling upon their power to attack one's foes.
Activation: Hold PunchLarge+KickLarge Requires at least four Magic Gauge Orbs to activate.
Effect: Once activated, the Infernal Communicator will summon s small group of floating skeletal demons that will attack Bayonetta's enemies and add to her combo score. Though their damage is low, they have a decent stagger rate and can keep smaller Angels off-balance, allowing more extended combos. While active, the Little Devils slowly drain the magic gauge.

Sergey's LoverEdit

Unlock: Purchase at the Gates of Hell for 100,000 halos.
Sergey's Lover
Description: Made by Matryona, a witch from the principality of Moscow, this brace allows the user to call upon the strength of the demon to which they are contracted, and divide themselves into multiple beings. By using this treasured item, Matryona was able to face several foes at once during battle. Her exploits have recently come back into vogue, leading her to become the model for the Russian Matryoshka folk dolls.
Activation: Hold PunchLarge+KickLarge Requires at least four Magic Gauge Orbs to activate.
Effect: Once activated, Sergey's Lover will summon two images of Madama Butterfly (or Madama Styx if playing as Jeanne) that will mimic Bayonetta's attacks and movements, but with a slight delay. The images do a fraction of the damage Bayonetta herself does, but quickly rack up combo points while active. So long as the images are present they will drain Bayonetta's magic gauge.

Star of DinètaEdit

Unlock: Bayonetta - Purchase at The Gates of Hell for 100,000 halos
              Bayonetta 2 - Purchase at The Gates of Hell for 100,000 halos
Description: American Navajo legends stats that these braces were crafted by the witch known as Yenaldooshi. They allow their user to replenish their vitality by taunting an enemy. Turquoise, shunned as a source of magical power, is still in use today in Navajo talismans.
Activation: Press or Hold Taunt (Bx lb/B l1).
Effect: When taunting an enemy, a small amount of health will be restored. Holding down the taunt button restores a small amount of health up to four times in a row. Bayonetta must be taunting an enemy for the accessory to work as pressing the Taunt button outside of combat will have no effect.

Gaze of DespairEdit

Unlock: Bayonetta - Purchase at the Gates of Hell for 100,000 halos.
              Bayonetta 2 -  Unknown.
Description: Cursed braces containing the soul of Musso Koroni, an ancient African goddess said to be the goddess of discord. Placing these braces upon one's arms is said to be an affront to Paradiso, summoning upon it's wearer the wrath of the heavens. During the witch hunts, the Malinese witch Karaba, was forced into these gauntlets, in which she was brutally murdered by angels.
Activation: None. The effect is passively activated while equipped.
Effect: Causes all enemies encountered to immediately go into a berserk state, the same as what happens when Bayonetta taunts an enemy. Enraged enemies attack much faster and are much more resistant to Bayonetta's attacks, making it much more difficult to stagger or stun them, even with Wicked Weaves. Her melee attacks that connect will also be drastically slowed. Despite these drawbacks, enraged enemies give increased combo points when struck and, by extension, drastically increase the amount of magic generated when attacked. This makes the Gaze of Despair invaluable when trying to get Platinum combo scores or a large number of halos.

Selene's LightEdit

Unlock: Bayonetta - Purchase at the Gates of Hell for 100,000 halos
              Bayonetta 2 - Purchase at the Gates of Hell for 100,000 halos
Description: An ancient brace crafted by the Egyptian witch Cleopatra. When its wearer is attacked, Witch Time will be instantly triggered, expending Magical Power. As leader of the Egyptian practitioners of magic, Cleopatra developed this guard to assist those who had trouble grasping the finer points of Witch Time.
Activation: Activated when struck by an enemy.
Effect: Instantly causes Witch Time to activate when taking damage from an enemy, consuming a portion of the magic gauge in the process. This allows Bayonetta to get out of chained combos from quick enemies like Gracious and Glorious.

Evil Harvest RosaryEdit

Unlock: Bayonetta - Purchase at the Gates of Hell for 100,000 halos
              Bayonetta 2 - Purchase at the Gates of Hell for 100,000 halos
Description: Magical beads crafted by the witch Akko while in the service of the ancient Japanese queen Himiko. When its user dodges incoming danger, the beads will launch a magical counter-strike against the attacker. While the attack is incredibly powerful, it sucks the emotional strength from its user, stripping them of the ability to activate Witch Time.
Activation: Activated when dodging (Bx rt/B r2) at the last possible moment.
Effect: When doing a dodge that would normally activate Witch Time, Bayonetta will leave a small orb of power where she was when she began her dodge. This orb will explode after a moment or if an enemy comes too close, causing damage and usually staggering them. However, this effect strips Bayonetta's dodge of its ability to trigger Witch Time.

Moon of Mahaa-KalaaEdit

Unlock: Bayonetta - Purchase at the Gates of Hell for 200,000 halos
              Bayonetta 2 - Purchase at the Gates of Hell for 200,000 halos
Moon of Mahaa-Kalaa
Description: Braces blessed by Shiva, the indian goddess of destruction. Said to have been crafted by the witch Yaksi while serving the Vijayanagara Empire, legend states the braces have the power to repel an enemy's attack. Yaksi was purported to have been invincible, as her mastery of this technique allowed her to nullify any attack, no matter what the strength.
Activation: Push the left joystick in the direction of the incoming attack.
Effect: Causes Bayonetta to form a circular glyph of energy in front of her with the symbol of the Umbra Witches that repels an incoming attack. This usually staggers the attacker, knocking them off balance for a moment. If the joystick is pressed in the direction of the attack the second they are hit, Bayonetta will not only parry the enemy attack but counter-attack and activate an extended Witch Time. It also restores a small bit of health when used as a counter-attack. This accessory is deemed by players to be by far the most useful, and mastery of its effect can protect the player from even the most brutal onslaughts.
The effect the Moon of Mahaa-Kalaa is also able to used regardless of accessory equipped in the Wii U version of Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 when the Hero of Hyrule costume is equipped.

Eternal TestimonyEdit

Unlock: Bayonetta - Collect 50 Umbran Tears of Blood, then purchase at the Gates of Hell for 500,000 halos.
              Bayonetta 2  - Unknown.
Description: A treasured article worn only by the elders of the Umbra Witches, these bracelets are both incredibly powerful and symbols of status. Said to have been crafted by the ancient and universally feared witch queen Aizen, slipping this onto one's arms would allow one to regenerate their magical powers. Legend states that the strange crow's head on the braces is actually Aizen transformed, and she will severely punish anyone who attempts to use the braces that she deems unworthy.
Activation: None. The effect is passively activated while equipped.
Effect: Automatically replenishes two magic gauge orbs whenever the gauge is depleted. This accessory's effect stacks with Golden Moon pearls, allowing Bayonetta to replenish four magic gauge orbs whenever her magic power runs dry.

Bracelet of TimeEdit

                    Bayonetta 2 - Press the L button.
Effect: Causes Witch Time to activate instantly, allowing the player to control exactly when and where they wish to exploit its effects.

Its incredible power is feared both by angels and demons, who have reached a mutual understanding that its power is not to be unleashed on the battlefield, no matter what conflict arises.

Activation: None. The effect is passively activated while equipped.
Effect (Bayonetta): Causes Bayonetta to enter Serious Mode, making every one of her attacks into Wicked Weaves as if she were fighting one of the Auditio bosses. However, using this item prevents any records set during its use from being recorded.

  • The "Immortal Marionette" looks very similar to the "Bloody Mari" marionettes from Devil May Cry. This is further strengthened in the description of the accessory as there is a reference to Bloody Mary.
  • The "Bracelet of Time" is full of Devil May Cry references. When unlocked, it is first referred to as the "Bangle of Time", a similar item from the first game. It states it was created by Eva (Dante's mother) and given to a legendary dark knight (Dante's father, Sparda). In Bayonetta, they are referred to as a witch and her demon partner whereas in DMC, they are a human and demon who fell in love. It is also a reference to Viewtiful Joe which featured an item known it as the V Watch.
  • The majority of the witches mentioned in the accessories are based on mythological or historical figures:
    • Pulley's Butterfly is said to have been crafted by Turandot. This is based on the opera "Turandot" that tells the tale of a cruel princess and a prince who fell madly in love with her.
    • Sergey's Lover was made by Matryona, a witch from Moscow. The name "Sergey's Lover" is likely a reference to Catherine the Great, whose first lover was a man name Sergei Saltykov (his wife was also named Matryona). Alternatively, the witch referenced may be Matryona Nikonova, a saint in the Russian Orthodox church, also known as Matrona of Moscow.
    • The Star of Dinèta was crafted by Yenaldooshi, a Navajo witch. This is based on "yenaldooshi," a type of skin-walker that is also known as the "Navajo Witch." In Navajo legend, a yenaldooshi is person who had committed a terrible act to gain supernatural powers.
    • Karaba, the witch tortured to death with the Gaze of Despair, is the name of a sorceress in a Malinese folk story. Musso Koroni is also an actual African Goddess.
    • Selene's Light mentions Cleopatra, a historical figure (who was also known as Cleopatra Selene II). Selene is also the greek goddess of the Moon.
    • The Evil Harvest Rosary mentions Queen Himiko, another historical figure.  The beads themselves are likely Juzu, Bhuddist prayer beads.
    • Yaksi, mentioned in the Moon of Mahaa-Kalaa, shares her name with mythical female beings in Hindu mythology. They are faerie-like and associated with wealth and treasure.
    • The witch-queen Aizen named in Eternal Testimony probably takes her name from a Bhuddist diety also known as Rāgarāja. Though this deity is male, he represents the transformation of desire (especially sexual/romantic desire) into enlightenment, making him a good namesake for an Umbran queen.
    • The Immortal Marionette refers to "Bloody Mary," a ghost said to appear in mirrors in folklore. Bloody Mary is also a nickname for Mary I of England.
  • The "Sergey's Lover" accessory seems to be based on Russian matryoshka dolls, leading to their ability to create multiple doppelgangers of Bayonetta.
  • The "Infernal Communicator" bears a subtle shout out to the Sega game series Jet Set Radio, where the rebellious rollerblading artist vandals of Tokyo, the GGs (or "rudies"), also sport radio wristwatches to tune in to the station of the same name and catch police and authority activity.
