–In-Game Description

Stiletto

Stiletto is a Technique used for simultaneously closing distance between Bayonetta and her target whilst also attacking them in Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2. It is an offensive way to dart around the battlefield between enemies, and greatly helps Bayonetta to ensure enemies are always within her weapon's reach.

Stiletto can be purchased from Gates of Hell from the beginning of the game onward for 20,000 Halos.

Usage

Stiletto is executed by pressing ForwardDirectionForwardDirectionPunchLarge or by holding LockOn and pressing ForwardDirectionPunchLarge. The move differs in animation and use depending on the weapon being used, drastically in some cases.

Handguns, Scarborough Fair, Onyx Roses, Bazillions & Love Is Blue

The actions for these four weapons are nearly identical as only the Charge Modifier causes them to act any differently. Scarborough Fair and the Handguns fire 11 bullets maximum depending on how long PunchLarge is held. Love Is Blue functions in the exact same way, though it is only able to fire a maximum of 7 bullets when the button is held down. The Onyx Roses simply fire a single shot at the very end of the technique's animation when PunchLarge is held, making it the weakest of the four small arms. Bazillions fires one of its signature laser beams at the end of the animation, making it the most powerful.

修羅刃-Shuraba-, Pillow Talk, Rakshasa & Chernobog

Functioning nearly the same, except for when Pillow Talk is in its charged state, Bayonetta lunges forwards with the sword(s), sliding towards her target as she does. With Chernobog, the blades on the end of the scythe spin as she moves forward and stops, adding on additional hits.

Kulshedra & Alruna

Unlike other weapons, Kulshedra and Alruna's Stiletto doesn't cause Bayonetta to dash towards her target. Instead, both of the whips shoot forwards, zig-zagging towards their targets quickly in a wide scope and hitting everything in a line on front of her.

Durga & Undine

Regardless of their elemental mode, Durga and Undine function the same, only changing slightly when taking the Charge Modifier into account. Durga leaves behind either leave a burning demonic skull behind or a quick shockwave of lightning where as Undine will blast out a burst of flame or ice depending on the element chosen.

Kafka

Similar to the bladed weapons she can also wield, Bayonetta lunges forward with Kafka and takes a swipe at her enemy using the bow itself as the 'blade'.

Lt. Col. Kilgore

Possibly the most useful of the Stiletto uses. When executed, Bayonetta will use the two bazookas to fire behind her, propelling her forwards through the air. Unlike other weapons, this Stiletto is very effective when trying to reach enemies hovering in the air as it will rocket Bayonetta up towards her target.

Salamandra

With Salamandra equipped, Bayonetta spirals forward through the air in a somersault, spinning the blades of the chainsaws around her in forward flips toward enemies for multiple hits.

武甕槌 Takemikazuchi

武甕槌 Takemikazuchi sends Bayonetta forward after a brief pause to hold the hammer properly, making it slower to start than other Stilettos. She twirls the hammer around her head as she comes to a stop and then causes it to enter its charged up state if the button is held down.

細鳳-Sai Fung-

Very similar in function to Scarborough Fair's Stiletto. It lacks a Charge Modifier, but makes up for this by being able to seamlessly combo into its basic punch combos.

Rodin

In the first game, using Stilletto with Rodin with cause Bayonetta to pull out one of the sousaphones carried by Affinity C and blast a massive pink beam towards her target. The beam can move slowly moved to the left or right using the joystick to sweep it across the battlefield to cause maximum damage. In Bayonetta 2, using Stilletto on Rodin lets Bayonetta summon the wheels of Pain to kick forward towards her enemies.
In both instances, the attack is very slow to execute, but does massive damage.
