Bayonetta Wiki
Advertisement

All 4 One is the name of Jeanne's trademark set of weapons that have appeared within each installment of the Bayonetta series. A set of four guns similar to Bayonetta's equivalents across the 3 games, All 4 One act as the default choice of weapon for Jeanne in both gameplay and story scenes, often sharing a moveset with their counterparts.

In-Game Description[]

Bayonetta[]

Four powerful handguns, crafted by the famed demon-smith, Rodin, and crowned with the names Athos, Porthos, Aramis, and D'Artagnan. Pushing one's magical powers to their limits, these guns' rate of fire and stopping power are incredible.

Bayonetta 3[]

A set of four powerful handguns, crafted by the famed Infernal weaponsmith Rodin and crowned with the names Athos, Porthos, Aramis, and D'Artagnan.

Trained for usage with the Umbran combat style called "Bullet Arts", they are not only guns with incredible stopping power, but also function as devastating melee weapons.

Furthermore, as they were created to channel the power of Madama Styx, Jeanne's most frequently summoned Infernal Demon, their destructive power increases exponentially when combined with the advanced magical art of the Demon Masquerade.

When merged with Madama Styx during Demon Masquerade, Jeanne gains even more powerful attacks and the ability to glide.

Design[]

All 4 One's design is based on a Parabellum pistol in general look, though the barrel has been heavily modified to accommodate melee-based combat. Individually, the guns are given the names Athos, Porthos, Aramis, and D'Artagnan, though otherwise look identical to one another.

All 4 One has featured a different accessory to each individual gun in every game they have appeared in, changing to match Jeanne's design. In the original game, the accessories were pink-white feathers, with the handheld gun's feathers being long and attached to a large ring, and the heel gun's feathers being short, stiff, and directly protruding from the grip. In the second game, a little plush cat ornament hung from each pistol's grip, with each one corresponding to one of the four primary characters in the literary work, "The Three Musketeers". The third game features patterned turquoise handkerchiefs with gold chinoiserie adornments, with the heel pair equipped with larger adornments but smaller lengths of fabric. This fabric in particular is probably the same material for the banner Bayonetta uses to make her own dress for the party on the boat.

How to Obtain[]

Bayonetta[]

When playing as Jeanne, the guns are given to her after completing the Prologue by Rodin.

Bayonetta 2[]

All 4 One is automatically acquired by Jeanne upon unlocking her as a playable character, along with a variant of each weapon Bayonetta has collected.

Bayonetta 3[]

All 4 One is automatically acquired by Jeanne upon unlocking her as a playable character in the Phenomenal Remnant chapters and Witch Trials. Jeanne also uses All 4 One as her default weapons in the Side Chapters.

Unique Traits[]

Bayonetta & Bayonetta 2[]

All 4 One features the same moveset and characteristics as Scarborough Fair in both games, including the usage of Wicked Weaves and Umbran Climax. Using Dodge Offset will cause the guns to fire numerous rounds as Jeanne flips out of harm's way. All bullets fired by All 4 One will ricochet off of surfaces at least once and attempt to hit nearby enemies. When compared to other weapons available in the games, All 4 One's damage is a bit low, but their flexibility of being both efficient in melee and ranged combat make them quite valuable throughout the game's duration.

Bullet Climax: Jeanne will stand motionless and take aim, allowing the player to manually fire at various enemies on the screen around her.

Charge Modifier: Holding down the corresponding attack button will cause Jeanne to fire off five shots before transitioning into her next attack. This allows All 4 One to accumulate combo points easily on smaller or slower angels, or deal damage at safe distance from more dangerous enemies.

Think you can dance with me? Just try not to die on your feet! ― Jeanne executing All 4 One's Masquerade Rage

In the third game, All 4 One shares the same moveset as Bayonetta's Colour My World; however, instead of purple demonic energy surrounding her punches and kicks, All 4 One surrounds Jeanne's attacks in platinum-coloured energy. The weapons share the same unlockable skills as Colour My World.

Trivia[]

  • D'Artagnan, and his friends Athos, Porthos, and Aramis, are the main characters of Alexandre Dumas' famous novel The Three Musketeers. A further reference to the novel is the inscription on Jeanne's guns reading "Tous pour un, un pour tous", "All for one, one for all", the famous motto of the musketeers.
    • Also visible upon the firearms is the original French title of the book, Les Trois Mousquetaires.
    • As a reference to the original literature, the cat doll representing Porthos in Bayonetta 2 is plumper than the others to reflect the character's indulgent lifestyle.
  • The feathers that are attached to each gun of All 4 One in the first game are said to have belonged to angels that Jeanne has slain.
  • To contrast with Bayonetta's Scarborough Fair, All 4 One was specifically given a more complex design and appearance.
  • Like Scarborough Fair, you technically cannot unequip All 4 One while playing as Jeanne in the first two games, as holding down the Shoot Button will cause her to draw one of the guns and fire.
  • In Bayonetta 2 during flashback sequences depicting past events, a bug causes both Jeanne and Bayonetta to have All 4 One equipped on their feet with the guns' new tassels.
