Bayonetta 3 is shaping up to be one of the best action games of all time, exclusively available on the Nintendo Switch, and most importantly, it brings more returning and new features than past entries. One of these is being able to customize your characters in style with different types of unique outfits and accessories. Each of the characters, most specifically Bayonetta and Viola, has quite a few customization options.

Key Takeaways
  • Bayonetta 3 allows your character to wear different costumes which makes the game more attractive. Each character has a healthy catalog of costumes from which you can choose.

    • Super Mirror B1 is a Japanese-themed skin and gives a new look to Bayonetta.
    • Super Mirror B2 is based on the traditional Chinese dragon and is quite breathtaking.
    • Super Mirror B3 is themed on Egyptian Mythology and looks very elegant.
    • Super Mirror B4 represents the historic French Revolution.

NOTE: Each of the costumes is distinctive in its presentation, and you can customize their color pattern too, not to mention you can unlock most of them using the Halos currency from Rodin’s Hell’s Gate shop. Keep in mind that they will become available to purchase as you progress on with the main storyline.

So without further delay, let’s quickly discuss each of the costumes and outfits that you can purchase and select inside the game.

The Umbral Witch and main protagonist of the series return with a sleuth of new and stylish that are eager to please anyone at first glance. Bayonetta has seen a makeover in her visual appearance, but not to worry, as you can customize her to your personal liking by changing the color of her outfits, glasses, and hair.

Furthermore, there are also some special ones that are callbacks to the previous two games. Follow along as we detail every outfit available for her and the colors that you can customize within each one.

Super Mirror 3

  • Price: Available from the start

As shown from the image above, the Super Mirror 3 is the default costume of Bayonetta as she now supports a long length of braided hair rather than having it short or spread out. Upon the initial reveal of her design, fans had speculated that she resembled the child version of Bayonetta called Cereza, who made her appearance during the events of the first game.

Whether or not the theory matches up now that the game is released, it is safe to admit that the design proved to be successful as Bayonetta looks as playful as ever in this outfit, and there are quite a few color options that you can select with the costume, these include:

  • Original (Default)
  • Red
  • Yellow
  • Green
  • Blue
  • Purple
  • Pink

Super Mirror 2

One of our all-time favorite costumes in Bayonetta 3, and we assume most will feel the same about it too, is, of course, the Bayonetta 2 default costume, as shown in the image above. You can immediately unlock the outfit for purchase from Rodin’s treasures section in his shop by having a save file of the game available on your Nintendo Switch console.

One of the notorious details of the outfit is that our Umbral Witch supports a short and sleek bob cut in contrast to the first game, where she had long open-ended hair with a ribbon. The costume itself is a simple yet rich attire comprised of scarf-like ornaments finishing off with Bayonetta’s Umbral clock in the middle of her neck and chest. Following are the available colors that you can choose for the costume:

  • Original (Default)
  • Blue
  • Yellow
  • Green
  • Red
  • Pink
  • Purple

Super Mirror 1

  • Price: 4000 Halos

There is nothing better than having the originator make its presence felt again as Bayonetta dons her original attire from the first game here. Similarly to the 2nd game’s outfit, you can unlock it for purchase from Rodin by having the save file of the first entry installed on your Switch, which will allow you to buy it right off the bat instead of completing the game once to unlock them.

This outfit remains timeless in the hearts of action game fans as Bayonetta’s hair is wonderfully tied off into two slits with a signature red ribbon to compliment it. Following is the list of colors for the costume:

  • Original (Default)
  • Purple
  • Green
  • Yellow
  • Blue
  • Red
  • Pink

Super Mirror B1

One of the new costumes a lot of players will absolutely love is the Super Mirror B1 which can be described as a mix of eye-catchy fashion designs straight out of Japan with a look completely out of an anime. The cherry on top is a gorgeous hair ribbon which will change with the different available colors.

Not to mention, the outfit itself is unlocked for purchase once you get past the Tokyo chapters of the game, which essentially take place during the beginning moments of the game from Chapter 2 onwards. Following is the list of colors that you can unlock for the outfit:

  • Original (Default)

Another culture-inspired look for Bayonetta comes directly after you conquer the chapters surrounding the country of China, where our sassy Umbral Witch looks like an exotic empress of the Red Dragon. The outfit goes well with quite a few colors here, as it is striking in both the intricate details and design. You can equip the following colors for the costume:

  • Original (Default)
  • Yellow
  • Black
  • Orange
  • Emerald
  • Blue
  • Purple

Looking to follow in the footsteps of the great Cleopatra or something similar to her legendary look? Then look further than the outfit shown in the image above. It can be unlocked once you successfully complete the Egyptian-centered chapters of the game. The crown-Esque helmet makes her look like a warrior of ancient times who is ready to battle against the most formidable of odds. You can choose between the following colors for it:

  • Yellow

One of the last few outfits that are available to pick up comes from the Paris chapters of the game, where you meet a phantom masquerade version of Bayonetta. The outfit is a magnificent iteration of the classic french revolution style, almost to the point where the mask can go excellent with green hair to mimic a Joker cosplay on our mischievous Umbral Witch. Following is the list of colors that you can choose for the costume:

  • Original (Default)
  • Dark Blue
  • Red
  • Wine Red
  • Black
  • Light Blue

Super Mirror 0

  • Price: Unlocked via Puzzle completion

The Super Mirror 0 is easily one of the most adorable costumes that you can acquire for Bayonetta, but the hardest part is acquiring it, which should preferably be done once you end the game for the first time. The outfit is a cute catgirl mockup where our Umbral Witch is wearing a beautiful laced frock topped off by her doll, Cheshire, as the cherry on top at the front.

Believe it or not, the outfit closely mimics the child version of Bayonetta we saw in the first game, Cereza, so a callback to her original design is always a pleasure. Out of all the costumes in Bayonetta 3, it is a secret unlockable which can be acquired if you follow our step-by-step guide below.

How To Unlock The Costume

Bayonetta 3 picture book

  • You will first need to purchase the Old Picture Book from Rodin’s treasure catalog for 4100 Halos which will then appear in the shelf section when at the chapter selection screen.
  • The book will have a lock on it, and in order to access it, you will need to hunt down three different keys across a few levels from the main story missions.
  • These keys can be found in the Chaotic rift zones where Bayonetta is occasionally seen traversing across a multi-dimensional space area with rock structures and formations.

The first key location (image credit: eXputer)
  • The first key is easy enough; simply hop into the Ginnungagap section of the first chapter and once you’re at the Chaotic Rift zone area, simply head to the location marked in the image above, where you can find the first key of the book.
  • You can preferably glide to the area using the Butterfly-like demon of the Color my World weapon.

The second key (image credit: eXputer)
  • The second key can be found by directly starting up Chapter 4 until you reach the Chaotic Rift area.
  • As shown in the image above, you will need to place yourself on a particular rock formation since the key is located on an elevated platform above the area.
  • It is strongly recommended that you have the Ribbit Libido BZ55 weapon equipped, as its demon form allows you to super jump, which is essential in this situation. 
  • Once you are up there, the key should be in the middle of the new elevated area, shown in the third image to the right above.

The Third Key (image credit: eXputer)
  • The last key is found during one of the game’s last chapters in Chapter 13.
  • Make sure to select the Ginnungagap section from the chapter itself.
  • If you follow the image above, you will be in an area where you can hop across a large gap, and the key can be seen hovering just along the gap.
  • You can either use the Ribbit Libido again to super jump to its location, or you can use the platforms that spawn here to grab with ease.
  • Now you should have all three keys and should be able to unlock the book at the shelf section of the chapter selection screen, allowing you to enter it.
Bayonetta 3 Inferno flowers
The Inferno Flowers (image credit: eXputer)
  • The entire Picture book mission is a charming linear puzzle adventure where our mini version of Cereza or Bayonetta must get to the end of her fairytale-like adventure.
  • Along the way, you will need to open up four inferno flowers throughout the mission, which aren’t hard at all to find as you will be able to find them right in your way of clearing the chapters.
  • Just to be sure, you can memorize their surrounding locations from the images above; just make sure to fully open them up by following the Rhythmic pattern that the game presents to you.
  • Once you open up the last flower, you will then need to backtrack your way to the chest, which will contain the Super Mirror 0 outfit.

The chest (image credit: eXputer)
  • The chest is located right toward the area where you activated the first Inferno Flower.
  • The entire chapter is divided into two halves, and the flowers and chest show up once you successfully reach the 2nd area, where the game will transition you to a new instance.
  • It shouldn’t be hard to locate as you just need to look for a large opening to the left side of the next starting area, and if you’ve completed the Inferno flowers, the chest should be ready for pick-up.
  • You will then receive the costume, after which just simply complete the picture book mission in order to head back to the main game and unlock it.
  • Out of all the costumes in Bayonetta 3, it should definitely be the last ones that you collect due to the requirements for it.

Viola Costumes

The newly introduced Witch-in-training, Viola, is shown to be a handful to deal with as she enlists Bayonetta’s help to defeat the powerful entity Singularity after the events from the prologue. She is a character that will grow on you after some heavy story beats, which we will let you enjoy at your leisure. Unfortunately, Viola doesn’t have any outfits, but luckily, you can change the color and design of her T-shirt, which are all listed below.

  • Stake Cat (White)
  • Stake Cat (Red)
  • Shock Cat (White)
  • Shock Cat (Purple)
  • Spike Cat (White)
  • Spike Cat (Orange)
  • Bleed Cat (White)
  • Bleed Cat (Green)
  • Team Little Angels (White)

Jeanne Costumes

Jeanne is one of the returning characters in the game, which made her presence felt by fans as she was one of the secondary antagonists of the first game, who then became one of the closest friends of Bayonetta. Jeanne is only playable once you complete the game for the first time; however, keep in mind that her gameplay and playstyle are largely identical to Bayonetta, including her weapons and demons too.

Currently, Jeanne does not support any costumes as she only has default attire available, which is shown in the image above. She is, if not just as popular as Bayonetta, so just like the fans, we sincerely hope they add a costume for her later down the line in an update to the game.

The Wrap-Up

Bayonetta 3 has a wide range of costumes that you can unlock, but not all of them can be acquirable right off the bat, as you will soon need to scratch and claw your way to earn Halos by defeating the secret angel-type enemies in each of the levels. Bayonetta most prominently has access to a unique set of outfits, but thankfully you can mix and match between the colors and accessories to make her stand out as your own personalized character.

This concludes our guide to the costumes in Bayonetta 3, and we hope you enjoyed reading through it. If you have any questions regarding these outfits, do let us know so we can help you out on it.
