Book of Infernal Demons

"A demon taking the form of a woman who left this world under unfortunate circumstances, only to be reincarnated in hell. Unlike her beautiful, swallowtail butterfly-like appearance, this demon is particularly brutal, and her reputation is well known even amongst the denizens of Inferno.

If a conjurer were to sign a contract and trade her soul, the demon would impart upon her enormous power and great wisdom."

Appearance

Madama Butterfly takes the form of a woman with swallowtail butterfly traits. She wears a purple thigh-split dress from the middle that shows her blue legs and purple high heels, the top of her dress is also open in a way that shows her breasts rested against purple straps. On her arms are long purple cuffs that wrap around her middle finger, along with butterfly accessories and red spikes on her knuckles. Madama Butterfly's most defining feature is the large butterfly-shaped headpiece that sits evenly on her head, gold spiky ornaments also rest on her forehead. Her eyes are completely red and appear almost jewel-like. In a physical form, she is revealed to rival Gomorrah in size and towers over all beneath her.[2]

History

Reincarnated in hell taking the form of a woman whose demise were under some "unfortunate circumstances", Madama Butterfly garnered a reputation in Inferno due to her brutality.[3] At some point, she also became a hated figure to the infernal demon Alraune though the circumstances surrounding her hatred for Madama Butterfly remains unknown.[2]

Story

Bayonetta 2

A Butterfly in the Storm

Madama Butterfly fights Temperantia.

While fighting the Masked Lumen, she is promptly summoned by Bayonetta to do battle with the Lumen. In response, the Lumen Sage then summoned Temperantia and the demon and angel fight one another. Trading blows with one another, Madama Butterfly is shown to equal the Cardinal Virtue in strength, throwing multiple punches at each other, until both throwing a punch strong enough to send them both flying in opposing directions.[2]

Later, due to the imbalance created after the death of present Balder, the Right Eye, Bayonetta finds herself betrayed and fighting various demons. When confronted by Pain, she remarks her gratitude for some demons keeping their part of their contract. Madama Butterfly's fist then briefly appears, giving a fist bump to the witch.[2]

After making her way to Inferno in order to rescue Jeanne from Alraune, Bayonetta summons Madama Butterfly to assist in beating Alraune. However, the latter revels in finally meeting Madama Butterfly, revealing a very deep hatred for her, but why is never explained. Bayonetta, impressed with however she managed to anger her, only remarks "nice" in return.[2]

Abilities

Madama Butterfly's most notable skill is her immense strength in which Bayonetta often uses in her Wicked Weaves attacks and skill in combat. A known brutal fighter, she is capable of easily overpowering the Valiance angel by using the angel's sword against it's body, fight on par with that of the Auditio in battle, Temperantia, and headbutt a large meteor launched at her by Loptr.[2]

Possessing some magic, she is capable in manifesting wings that can enable her to fly in the air. Madama Butterfly is also capable of preforming witch time when dodging Temperantia's attacks.[2]

Gameplay

In the first game, only Madama Butterfly's arms and legs are summoned during Wicked Weaves. Her limbs sometimes change color when equipping certain weapons and attack in different ways from claw strikes to palm thrusts. She also forms Bayonetta's shadow when it is cast and her wings are used to give the witch an extra boost in height when she jumps. When equipped with the Sergey's Lover Madama Butterfly also appears as two images that mimic all of Bayonetta's moves.

Trivia

  • Madama Butterfly takes her name from the title character of an opera by Giacomo Puccini. Butterfly (also known as Cio-Cio-san) was a Japanese girl who fell in love with an American serviceman, who married her for convenience with the intention of leaving her once he found a proper American wife. Butterfly would have a child by him and wait three years for his return, only to see him arrive with his new wife, who had agreed with him to raise Butterfly's child as their own. Heartbroken, Butterfly agreed to give up the child to the couple before taking her own life by means of using her father's knife to commit jigai, a female form of seppuku, to preserve her honor.
