Book of Infernal Demons

"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."

–The Book of Infernal Demons.


Madama Butterfly takes the form of a woman with swallowtail butterfly traits. She wears a purple thigh-split dress from the middle that shows her blue legs and purple high heels, the top of her dress is also open in a way that shows her breasts rested against purple straps. On her arms are long purple cuffs that wrap around her middle finger, along with butterfly accessories and red spikes on her knuckles. Madama Butterfly's most defining feature, is the large butterfly-shaped headpiece that sits evenly on her head, gold spiky ornaments also rest on her forehead. Her eyes are completely red and appear almost jewel-like. In a physical form, she is revealed to rival Gomorrah in size and towers over all beneath her..[2]



Bayonetta 2

A Butterfly in the Storm

Madama Butterfly fights Temperantia.

While fighting the Masked Lumen, she is promptly summoned by Bayonetta to do battle with the Lumen. In response, the Lumen Sage then summoned Temperantia and the demon and angel fight one another. Trading blows with one another, Madama Butterly proves superior and defeats the angel.[2]

Later, due to the imbalance created after the death of present Balder, the Right Eye, Bayonetta finds herself betrayed and fighting various demons. When confronted by Pain, she remarks her gratitude for some demons keeping their part of their contract. Madama Butterly's fist then briefly appears, giving a fist bump to the witch.[2]

After making her way to Inferno rescue Jeanne from Alurane, Bayonetta summons Madama Butterfly to assist in beating Alraune. However, the latter revels in finally meeting Madama, revealing a deep hatred for her. Bayonetta, impressed with however she managed to anger her, only remarks "nice" in return.[2]



In the first game, only Madama Butterfly's arms and legs are summoned during Wicked Weaves. Her limbs sometimes change color when equipping certain weapons and attack in different ways from claw strikes to palm thrusts. She also forms Bayonetta's shadow when it is cast and her wings are used to give the witch an extra boost in height when she jumps. When equipped with the Sergey's Lover Madama Butterfly also appears as two images that mimic's all of Bayonetta's moves.

Bayonetta 2

Madama Butterfly can now be summoned fully during certain Umbran Climax and Torture Attacks during boss fights and against other demons. All of her previous attack patterns and provided abilities are included along with some new ones such as uppercuts, headbutts and flying kicks.In addition, Bayonetta can use her wings to glide across distances.

Madama Butterfly is briefly controllable during the fight with against the summoned Temperantia in Chapter IV. She uses her fists to sideswipe and uppercut her foe and is able to activate Witch Time by dodging Temperantia's own attacks

  • Madama Butterfly takes her name from the title character of an opera by Giacomo Puccini. Butterfly (also known as Cio-Cio-san) was a Japanese girl who fell in love with an American serviceman, who married her for convenience with the intention of leaving her once he found a proper American wife. Butterfly would have a child by him and wait three years for his return, only to see him arrive with his new wife, who had agreed with him to raise Butterfly's child as their own. Heartbroken, Butterfly agreed to give up the child to the couple before taking her own life by means of using her father's knife to commit jigai, a female form of seppuku, to preserve her honor.
