With the exception of the third method, Bayonetta must then be defeated on the Umbra Clock Tower.
Changes from Super Smash Bros. 4
Bayonetta has been significantly nerfed in the transition to Ultimate, most likely because she was considered the best character in Smash 4, to the point of being labeled by some players as "broken" and compared her to the infamous Brawl incarnation of Meta Knight despite the nerfs she received in SSB4 patches. Many of her best moves, such as Witch Time, Witch Twist, and Afterburner Kick, have been substantially nerfed to reduce her potency in combos and KO confirms. Unlike her Smash 4 iteration, she now has a defined main weakness with the lack of kill options at higher percentages.
Classic Mode: The Requiem of Fallen Wings
All of Bayonetta's opponents have wings, in reference to her battles against angels, with the exception of Giant Palutena who is a reference to the final boss battle of Bayonetta against Jubelius, the Creator.
Role in World of Light
Bayonetta was among the fighters summoned to the cliffside to fight against the army of Master Hands.
During the opening cutscene, Bayonetta was present when Galeem unleashed his beams of light. Bayonetta dodged a beam of light, activating her Bat Within, but she was then vaporized immediately after she reformed her body, and later placed under Galeem's imprisonment alongside the rest of the fighters, excluding Kirby.
