The "Cirrocumulus", one of the two Heavy Tandem Combat Unit, is a Homunculus and boss enemy that appears in the third game, Bayonetta 3. Together with its partner, Cirrostratus, these Homunculi work as a pair and act to overwhelm Bayonetta during her quest in the third alternate universe.

Anatomia Complex[]

Like Cirrostratus, Cirrocumulus is also a massive Homunculus type designed by Singularity with the intent to replicate gods worshiped by ancient civilizations.

While sharing basic properties with Cirrostratus, this Homunculus is equipped with a complementary ability to generate and attack with extreme winds, bringing the divine retribution feared by ancients.

Cirrocumulus and Cirrostratus are designed to operate and attack in tandem, and the structure shaped like a giant set of scales that they use as a combat arena is thought to be inspired by the Egyptian Book of the Dead.


Cirrocumulus appears as a partially-humanoid draconic centaur, sporting white chitinous growths, scales, and "armor" akin to the Stratus, Pannus, and Cavum homunculi. Cirrocumulus' appearance mirrors the Cirrostratus, save for its design's inverted colors and avian theme.

Its humanoid body resembles a female centaur with blank facial features save for an avian-shaped helmet, blue talismans covering its breasts, along with a defined midriff, with its left arm being humanoid and the right arm ending in a draconic head. The outlines of Stratus homunculi can be seen behind the humanoid torso's back, and on the dorsal ridge of the draconic head, along with the hind legs. The draconic head itself features white fangs, a green tongue, and a white armored sharp snout with blue ribbons flowing right behind the head.

The lower draconic body is entirely covered in white chitinous scales, save for the joints at the limbs, along with a sharp, segmented tail.



Recommended Weapons[]



  • The term cirrocumulus refers to one of the three main types of high-altitude tropospheric clouds, along with cirrus and cirrostratus. A cirrocumulus is typically a short-lived transition; when a cirrocumulus' liquid water droplets are frozen by the cloud's ice crystal compnent, it transforms into a cirrostratus, which can also produce precipitation in the form of a virga.
  • Its humanoid part's ibis-like appearance appears to be based on the Egyptian god Thoth. This is supported by its entry in the Anatomia Complex referencing to the Book of the Dead, where Anubis and Thoth are tasked with the judgment of the afterlife; its Cirrostratus counterpart also sports a jackal-like figure similar to Anubis.
