Bayonetta Wiki

Malphas is a large, crow or parrot-like demon that appears in Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2. It can be summoned to finish off airborne enemies; it also gives Bayonetta the power of flight.

Book of Infernal Demons

"An enigmatic raven-black bird shrouded in the mysteries of the sky. Ever curious, Malphas has filled itself with all the world's knowledge and mysteries.

However, this same curiosity has led to a rather brutal demeanor, causing the bird to tear those it encounters to shreds with its sharp beak and razor-like talons."



In Chapter IV, Bayonetta summons Malphas to eliminate Fortitudo. Manifesting in midair, Malphas spreads its wings and dives at the Auditio. The demon then pins Fortitudo to a piece of debris and begins to peck at its victim with increasing speed before severely injuring the angel and disappearing.

Malphas reappears in Chapters V and VI; it helps Bayonetta defeat the first sphere angel Inspired. Once it appears, Malphas grabs Inspired's neck and tears the angel's head off. Malphas eats the severed head; it flies away and returns to Inferno afterwards.

Bayonetta: Bloody Fate

Malphas appears above Gomorrah and Hideous on a stained glass window.

Bayonetta 2

Bayonetta, Jeanne, and Rosa summon Malphas' wings in order to fly and face enemies in midair.


Malphas resembles a crow or a raven. It has four blue eyes; one is larger than the other three. A necklace of skulls hangs around Malphas' body, and a red crescent moon pierces through its forehead. Malphas' talons are red and sharp; the demon has elegant red wings, and three long tails. Two of these tails end in red, thorny bulbs.


Malphas' name and birdlike appearance are derived from the Grand-President Malphas of the Pseudomonarchia Daemonum and Ars Goetia, who commands 40 legions, builds large citadels, and towers that can withstand anything, and destroys his enemies with powerful magic.

Grand-President Malphas takes on the form of a small crow to spy on others; his true form is that of a large, well-built man with grey wings, black hair, a goatee, and piercing blue eyes.
