Bayonetta Wiki

Labolas, also known as the Destroyer of Fates, is a type of Infernal Demon that appears in Bayonetta 2 and Bayonetta 3. Bayonetta first comes to call upon it, following Gomorrah's betrayal.

Book of Infernal Demons[]

Bayonetta 2[]

A beloved pet dog who had the bad luck to wander into hell, but the good luck and survival instincts to get through its harsh environment and grow into a force to be reckoned with.

With the superb hunting abilities, it has even become known to some as a merciless butcher. Once it has sunk its sharp canines into its enemy, it will not let go until their last breath.

Bayonetta 3[]

On rare occasions, animals that somehow wander into Inferno and manage to survive the deadly environment can take on monstrous forms.

Infernal Demons of this nature are known as "Labolas," and their ferocity is known to strike fear in even the most powerful demons in Inferno, but there are also cases where multiple animals will fuse together to gain even greater magic power.

Notably, the Labolas that Bayonetta has entered into a pact with is a rare example - a family of five cats that, even after their transformation and fusion, each retain their own consciousness and can split apart to act independently.

The freezing breath this Labolas spews is rumored to be the manifestation of the chilling fear it experienced during the long path to its transformation.


Bayonetta 2[]

When Gomorrah rebels against Bayonetta, the Umbra Witch summons Labolas to combat it.

In Chapter IV, Bayonetta summons Labolas to finish Urbane off. Later then she calls it once again during one of her battles against the Masked Lumen, who has summoned Fortitudo to his side. While Labolas is able to defeat its angelic opponent, the Masked Lumen attacks the demon and forces it back into Inferno.

After Bayonetta is sent back to the time of the Witch Hunts, she summons Labolas to fight a Beloved alongside Gomorrah, who has been called upon by Rosa.

Labolas makes its final appearance when Bayonetta summons it to attack Loptr. However, the Prophetic One effortlessly defeats his demonic opponent.

Bayonetta 3[]

During the final battle against Singularity, an alternate Bayonetta resembling her appearance in 2 summons a Labolas to attack a Duplicatus. After beating the game, Labolas becomes available as a summonable demon alongside its weapon Cruel Altea.


Labolas is a large, lion-like demon with massive, bat-like wings. It has three heads; two of them double as its front paws. Each of Labolas' heads possesses a pair of large, thick fangs and multiple red eyes. Skulls appear near the eyes of this demon's primary head; atop this head are curved horns. Labolas also has a long, thin tail.


As shown in Bayonetta 2, Labolas has sharp claws and teeth that surpass even that of Gomorrah. In 3 he has been shown to be able to split into 5 and merge back again, as well as having freezing breath.


Bayonetta 2[]

When summoned, Labolas leaps at and bites its targets; it proceeds to tear them apart using its sharp fangs.

In Tag Climax, Labolas primarily attacks by swiping at opponents with its claws, or biting them with its main head. The demon may also charge at its foes at high speeds to ensure they are never out of range.

Bayonetta 3[]

Labolas makes an appearance in Bayonetta 3, lending its power after the final chapter is complete, along with its weapon, Cruel Altea.

During Demon Slave, the specific Labolas Bayonetta summons is capable of splitting into five smaller demons that attack as a pack, as well as breath an icy mist that can freeze most targets.

Labolas' name is derived from that of Glasya-Labolas, who, in demonology, is the twenty-fifth spirit of the Goetia and a Great President of Hell who commands thirty-six legions of demons.

Glasya-Labolas is capable of teaching men of all the arts and sciences in an instant; he is an author of bloodshed and manslaughter who incites homicide by revealing future events to others. Glasya-Labolas can make a man invisible, and he is depicted as a dog with the wings of a griffon.



  • When designing Labolas, Yusuke Hashimoto thought that the demon's feet would fight over food with its main head.
  • Bayonetta uses the incantation "ARGEDCO" to summon Labolas. This translates to "invoke."
  • Labolas is the only demonic enemy in Bayonetta 2 that is not fought over the course of the game's story. Instead, it only appears in Tag Climax.
    • In Tag Climax, Labolas does not attack others unless they attack it first. Unless provoked, the demon lies on the ground with its wings folded and its legs tucked under it like those of a sleeping dog. This is a reference to the first Labolas' origins as a dog that got lost in the depths of Inferno.
  • In Bayonetta 3, the description from the Book of Infernal Demons reveals that Labolas is actually a term for demons that were once animals before their transformation. This also means the Labolas encountered in Bayonetta 3 is a different entity from the Labolas in Bayonetta 2.
