Bayonetta Super Smash Bros Ultimate Guide - Unlock, Moves, Changes, Bayonetta Alternate Costumes, Final Smash

Super Smash Bros Ultimate Full Character Roster, plus guides on every fighter in the game, covering changes, moves and alternate outfits.

Bayonetta is back for Smash Bros Ultimate. She’s still a flashy fighter, but has gone through a number of changes since her last appearance. And to celebrate the fact that there are 74 playable characters in Super Smash Bros Ultimate, we’re building character guides for all of them. In this Super Smash Bros Ultimate Bayonetta Guide, we’ll be highlighting all of the changes that have been made since SSB4. We’ll also take a look at her Final Smash and the Alternate Costumes that can be chosen at the character select screen.

We’re gradually adding more and more character guides in the lead up to launch day. You can find all of the ones we’ve put together so far in our Super Smash Bros Ultimate Characters Guide.
