Final Smash Final Climax: Queen Sheba

Bayonetta (ベヨネッタ, Beyonetta) appears as a newcomer in Super Smash Bros. V, revealed at the end of the Bayonetta 3 Direct on April 17, 2019.

Bayonetta is the eponymous main character and protagonist of the Bayonetta series. She is a coquettish and mysterious Umbra Witch, who possesses a remarkable talent for the Bullet Arts and is the bearer of the Left Eye, that oversees the darkness.

She is confirmed to have no alternate costume, but one of her palette swaps is based of her good friend, Jeanne. Jeanne appears as an assist trophy.

Bayonetta is voiced by her voice actors in her games, Hellena Taylor and Atsuko Tanaka in japanese.



Quick and Nimble

Can crawl

Good aerial attacks

Strong ranged Specials

Fast regular attacks

Little lag on most moves



Few specials have quite the lag


Bayonetta has quick and nimble movement. She use quick hits in her regular attacks and her magic skills in her special attacks. She has very reliable special and regular attacks. Alot of her specials have nice range and damage to them. Most of her moves also have little lag making her very good at quick strikes.

A thing to note is that she’s a pretty light character. This means she can be KOed easily. Some specials like Gomorrah have quite the ending lag. But really she doesn’t really have too much flaws but the fact that she can be KOed pretty early.

Her counter attack, Witch Time, is a very unique counter in the fact that it isn’t a single hit but 3 hits doing set damage and the final hit’s knockback depending on the attack countered.

Bayonetta is a solid character. She does take a bit of mastery to be used to her complete best but if mastered, she can be way better than she already is.

Her more explicit content have been toned down but not to the point where she is completely different. Also some of her magic attack’s proportion have been scaled down. But with all these adjustments, she’s still the Bayonetta fans love.

Special Moves

Name Damage Description
Neutral Special Heart Shot 2% (contact), 2% (energy taken), 9% (explosion) Bayonetta uses her Love is Blues to shoot pellets arranged in the shape of a heart at the opponent. They stick onto the opponent then suck energy out of them before they explode. The explosion can be shielded but energy is still taken while shielding.
Alternate 1 Infernal Kiss 3% (uncharged), 7% (charged) Chargeable. Bayonetta blows a kiss of dark flames at the opponent which produces a paralyzing effect. Paralysis effect lasts longer depending on the charge. The charge releases on its own when fully charged similar to Zero Suit’s Paralyzer.
Alternate 2 Gomorrah Bayonetta uses her Love is Blues to summon Gomorrah from the ground while saying “AVAVAGO”. Gomorrah eats up any projectile fired at Bayonetta. Gomorrah actually doesn’t damage opponents in any way.
Side Special Umbran Climax 2% (hits 1 and 2), Up Tilt Attack: 6% (uppercut), 3% (kick), Side Tilt Attack: 12% (total), Down Tilt Attack: 4% (slam), 6% (piercing) Functions somewhat similar to Marth’s Dancing Blade but it must be charged before it can be executed. Side + B to charge as Bayonetta glows purple while getting a ready position. The charge isn’t too long. Then when it’s fully charged simply execute by hitting Side + B. Bayonetta summons various Wicked Weaves to attack as she glows purple while saying “Is that all of you’ve got?”. The first attack is a fist, then a slash, then a spiraling uppercut into an air kick, a multiple fist barrage, or a fist slamming the opponent down finishing with a spiraling pierce as they’re down depending on the direction inputted on the final hit of course. The final hits were mentioned from up-side-down. The Weaves were off course scaled down a bit. Bayonetta can be hit from behind stopping the sequence but usually fighters won't be able to jump over it.
Alternate 1 Piercing Weave 9% Bayonetta charges for a very small period of time with a similar stance as to that of charging an Umbran Climax. She then sends a Wicked Weave forward that pierces the enemy. Not much range. Can be considered much safer than the base Umbran Climax as it’s quicker but because it’s only one hit, it’s weaker. Cannot be reflected. Good critical hit chance. If tapped, it’s a short range slam attack that knocks opponent downwards.
Alternate 2 Tetsuzanko 15% (immediate contact), 10% (later) Bayonetta charges for a very small period of time with a similar stance as to that of charging an Umbran Climax. She then sends a Dragon-like Wicked Weave forward, while saying “New do’, dead you.” that spirals and attacks before disappearing. Has good range as it goes about 80% of Final Destination. It’s weaker with a late hit. Cannot be reflected. Good knockback. KOs lighter fighters on a direct hit at 120%. If tapped, it’s a short range slam attack that knocks opponent away from her.
Up Special Madama Butterflight Bayonetta uses the power of Madama Butterfly to fly in any direction inputted for a short amount of time. Must rapidly tap B to move up.
Alternate 1 Stiletto 1% (each shot) Bayonetta executes Stiletto upwards diagonally with her Love is Blues. The shots do damage to opponents. Can be used on ground while tilting control stick between a side input and an up input as she moves forward slightly above the ground. If tilted directly upwards she’ll always move upward diagonally.
Alternate 2 Air Dodge Bayonetta swiftly jumps in a dodgeful acrobatic manner. She is invincible while using it and can attack out of it but if attack is used in midair she's pretty much helpeless as she most likely has no jumps and she can't use it again.
Down Special Witch Time 4% (hit 1), 4% (hit 2), 6% (hit 3) Works like a counter but doesn’t have the same multiplied damage effect. Instead when Bayonetta uses it she dodges the attack slowing down time, exclaiming “Can’t Touch me!” then she hits the opponent with 3 acrobatic hits while using Witch Time. Good knockback depending on the attack. Each hit has a preset damage output and the final hit’s knockback depends on the attack used against Bayonetta. When the hits are finished she exclaims “Hit me baby!”
Alternate 1 Witch Time: Panther Within 1.2x (9% minimum) Works just like a regular counter in which she uses Witch Time transforming into her panther form and retaliating with a strong attack.
Alternate 2 Heel Stomp 11% Works like a counter except she executes her heel stomp which grounds opponents while also doing a set amount of damage.
Final Smash Final Climax: Queen Sheba 65% Bayonetta chants “TELOC VOVIM A GRAA ORS TABA ORD AVAVAGO” while doing a short dance as she then kneels pointing her hands to sky. Anybody in her circular radius as she begins the chant are then caught up in an animation which involves her weaves spiraling up summoning Queen Sheba. Queen Sheba then towers over the fighters caught up in the attack and winks with her lips puckered. She then jumps down with her feet blazing purple crashing down on the opponents as it transitions back to the gameplay as the fighter (s) caught are/is blown away.
