CassiopeiaCassiopeia is a weapon introduced in Bayonetta 3. It is a large anchor housing the Infernal Demon Kraken within. With the weapon equipped, Bayonetta's footsteps and jumps generate small pools of ink at her feet.

In-Game Description[]

An anchor-like weapon once wielded long ago against the Infernal Demon Kraken, until its wielder was defeated and sunk to the bottom of the ocean. The weapon itself remained embedded in Kraken's body, absorbing magic power over centuries.

There's also tales of this weapon's use from Japan, where a Heike general in the late Heian period is rumored to have taken it into battle against the leader of a race of demons hiding near the ocean floor, but the truth remains unclear.

When swung, the sharpened tip is shot out on a thick chain, enabling the wielder to crush enemies from a distance.

When this weapon is used in tandem with Demon Masquerade, the user channels Kraken's power and becomes a demonic being with the ability to swim through solid ground like water and strike with eight flexible tentacles.


Cassiopeia is a bluish purple and copper coloured anchor. It has red gems set on the tip that is tied to the body by an internal chain, it will detach itself upon being swung around, working like a flail. It can work like a giant crossbow that shoots out trident shaped explosive harpoons. With the weapon equipped, Bayonetta's footsteps and jumps generate small pools of ink at her feet.

How to Obtain[]

Obtained upon completing Phenomenal Remnant 14, along with Kraken.

Unique Traits[]

Kraken Demon Masquerade (Bayo)

Bayonetta's Demon Masquerade form while using Cassiopeia.

Face the surging tide! Drown in the shadowy maelstrom! Weigh anchor! ― Bayonetta executing Cassiopeia's Demon Rage

Cassiopeia is a slow weapon, between G-Pillar and Dead End Express in speed. Attacks reach both close and long range enemies, as swinging the weapon around extends its tip to use as a flail. However, enemies in medium range are unaffected.

Pressing Shoot will have Bayonetta use the weapon as a crossbow, firing off explosive bolts.

  • The weapon is named after a woman of Greek mythology who was the queen of Aethiopia (Ethiopia) and the mother of Andromeda, whose arrogance and vanity led to her downfall. She boasted that she and her daughter were more beautiful than all the Nereids, the sea nymph daughters of the sea god Nereus, which incurred the wrath of the other sea god Poseidon, who intended to destroy the kingdom. According to a consulted oracle, the only way to appease the gods and avoid the kingdom's destruction was to sacrifice Andromeda by chaining her to a rock and left to be killed by Poseidon's sea monster Cetus. The hero Perseus eventually slayed Cetus and rescued Andromeda, but Poseidon still punished Cassiopeia by turning her into a constellation where she was chained to a throne in a similar position to her daughter.
  • The second legend associated with Cassiopeia refers to Taira no Tomomori, the son of the historically first Shogun of Japan, Taira no Kiyomori. According to legend, upon the end of the penultimate battle of Dan no Ura of the Genpei Wars, when the Heike defiantly committed suicide to avoid the shame of loss, Tomomori tied an anchor to his feet before tossing himself overboard to disappear into history with dignity. Tying in with Pillow Talk, the legions of demons found near on the seafloor and fought against refer to the Asura of Buddhist cosmology, where in legend their world is on the seabed upon being exiled from Mount Meru by the Devas, and include gargantuan creatures like sea monsters and kaiju due to the infamy of the asura Vritra, who once swallowed the universe whole, associating voracity and hunger for power with their characteristics.
