Bayonetta Wiki

Cruel AlteaCruel Altea is a quartet of gauntlets and greaves housing the Infernal Demon Labolas within. When attacking, each part detaches to reach enemies at a medium range.

In-Game Description[]

A unique weapon form of Labolas, a type of Infernal Demon born when pets become lost in Inferno and adapt to survive.

Equipped on the hands and feet, these remote attack units are launched at enemies and manipulated to deal blows from a distance, and can also spew freezing breath capable of reaching absolute zero from their mouths.

When merged with Labolas during Demon Masquerade, the user takes on a quadrupedal, beast-like form and becomes able to use several of its varied abilities, like running on air and performing combination attacks with ice duplicates.


Cruel Altea is a unique weapon, it looks like five Labolas demons two being attached to the hand, two on the feet and one on the hip as a sort of belt accessory. The two units on the hands are coloured red and green and are on the right and left hand respectively, while the two units on the feet are coloured blue and yellow and are worn on the right and left foot respectively. The belt accessory is black with bronze horns. Bayonetta creates blue cold vapors at her feet.

How to Obtain[]

Cruel Altea and Labolas are obtained automatically upon finishing Chapter 14.
