Top 10 Reasons to Hate Bayonetta

bugger
I am going to talk Bayonetta from Super Smash Bros, sometimes I'll talk about her game

The Top Ten

1 She ruined Super Smash Bros.

Not everybody hates her only for that. Why are you so doggone defensive? Her raunchy self brought nothing all that wonderful and new to the table as it was, there was nothing indicating or implying she or her games were so popular people wanted her in above literally any other game character ever even ones owned by Nintendo themselves, and did I mean her raunchiness thus ruining what's supposed to be an E10+ rated game (toning down didn't help, what if someone- possibly a kid- now wanted to go check out that "Devil May Cry Penthouse Edition" that is her original game where she's not toned down). Not to mention people who didn't buy her still had to waste time and disk space on an update solely for her- that's sounds like ruining to me.

If I wanted a game with a barely-dressed woman wielding actual deadly weapons, I'd play a Mortal Kombat game of my choice instead of Super Smash Bros. And I tried to get into the Bayonetta series itself but I couldn't, all I saw was a pathetic rip-off of Devil May Cry that people only seem to love because yay female protag who gets away with stuff a male character wouldn't have and other female characters somehow didn't before. A series whose existence I now can't just ignore because the fans swarmed the Smash Ballot and Nintendo gave in to them.

Thank you Nintendo for putting Bayonetta in Super Smash Bros. She ruins the game! - bugger

She really is a terrible character to put in smash:I

2 She is not for kids

And kids are going to take an interest in her game now that she's found her way into Smash 4.

I am not a kid, I am just a dude who hates Rated M. I want to be child friendly - bugger

3 She looks shocking

When the "Tomb Raider" series started, much was made over the shocking sexiness of its lead, Lara Croft. It's like the creator of Bayonetta set forth to top that, and indeed Lara looks like a Puritan next to Bayonetta.

I guess the creator of Lara Croft must have snuck his way into sega.

The back of her dress is too revealing. She shows more skin as Wario's Skin. - bugger

4 She doesn't deserve to win the Super Smash Bros. Ballot

Her winning the ballot and Nintendo going through with putting her in rather than consider the highest ranked character from a game rated no more than T just shows me that if enough people had voted General Custer with a... thing certain over-advertised perscription medicines supposedly help a guy with wearing nothing but a cowboy hat and bandana (and yes this was indeed from a video game) he would have made it in. Or if enough people had voted for the heroine of "Jungle Fever", a naked chick who lactates out a fire to save a naked guy being burned at the stake, she would have made it in without a second thought. That scares me beyond words.

She technically didn't even really win. Being "very popular in Europe" (the number three market behind the US and Japan) and "within the top five" (if she'd actually been number one they would have just said so) were the reasons given for her inclusion.

It Was Supposed To Be Maxwell From SCRIBBLENAUTS Who Won That - Devonchi

5 Metal Gear is better than her game

Metal Gear is Snake's game but seriously, Snake is infinite times better than Bayonetta...

Oh wait, I thought I hate Rated M. I only like the look of Snake. - bugger

Snake may be from an M rated game but at least he wasn't a walking bad S&M fantasy.

6 Bayonetta looks like a nerdy person

With the glasses and the hair she reminds me too much of Sarah Palin

Bayonetta is very ugly

The glasses makes me think that she looks like a nerd! - bugger

7 She rips off Zero Suit Samus' look

I'm pretty sure that's the real reason she supposedly "won". By "realizable" they meant "can just re-skin a model we already have so we don't have to build a new one".

8 She's overpowered

This was supposedly addressed with the most recent software update, but now we run into the "can't just not buy her" problem because now everyone's whining about how she was nerfed.

9 People are now happy to be able to use her to beat up undeserving characters

Previous commenter forgot Robin. Everyone ignores if not hates him/her, and now here's the great, wonderful, awesome, perfect Bayonetta to give that guy/chick a "well deserved" beating. Though at least I can say that the one time I've ever faced a Bayonetta online, the joke was on them because they had to hear the announcer say "The winner is... Robin" (played by me) and they ended up in FOURTH place.

It's mostly the Peach, Zelda, and Rosalina haters who would think this, though Link, Mario, Dedede, Meta Knight, Paluntena, Wario, Yoshi, Marth, and Pit are also subject to being called "lame-os" or whatnot and yay now being able to have "sexiest/most badass character ever" beat up on them. Meanwhile, I can't even hate the Duck Hunt dog anymore, in Smash he's just too cute!

Bad enough everyone showed this attitude with Snake in Brawl.

Why whould anyone do that?

10 They are other characters that fit better with Smash Bros

Someone from the Soul Caliber would have made a lot more sense, even. If for no other reason than bringing full circle the fact that Link was in one of their games.

The Newcomers

? Her fans make certain Elsa fans look sane

Maybe not "look sane", but, well, the likes of Caps Girl are at least good for a chuckle. Bayonetta fans, however, just plain frighten me.

? Nintendo cut a trophy for being too sexy for Smash 4's E10+ rating yet included Bayonetta as a playable character without a second thought

This is true. The 3DS Smash was supposed to have a trophy of Tharja from Fire Emblem Awakening (and indeed had trophies of many of the rest of the characters from that game), but it did not appear in the final product because while Awakening itself was rated T Nintendo still wanted Smash to be rated E10+. Then the Smash Ballot happened and they put in this playable character who's actually even more inappropriate than Tharja ever was even in her own game.

The Contenders

11 She kills angels

Unfortunately that hasn't stopped people from shipping her with Pit.

Since I don't play Bayonetta, I see some comments from Miiverse why people don't want Bayonetta. In the part of that comment, she just kills angels. Enough Said because I'm lazy! - bugger

12 She's a genderbent version of Dante from Devil May Cry

And that's all she is. Boring.

13 We now have to endure her being shipped with other characters who made it into "Smash"

Earlier "Smash" games already spawned crossover pairings, most of which were quite random, many downright weird, and very few (like can be counted on one hand) that made a lick a sense AND weren't because of how they looked together. Now that Bayonetta's in there, SHE'S going to be paired with anyone and everyone else in the game. And knowing her, "paired" if we're lucky if you know what I mean!

She's being shipped with Pit and Palutena even though she'd sooner kill them.

14 You can't "just not buy her"

Whether you download her or not, that stupid notification of her availability "in all her glory" still shows up on the main menu screen, and since she was the last DLC addition we're all going to be seeing that notification forever. Also people raving about her inclusion-- and judging you if you don't have her yourself.

15 Her home series is only popular because she's a female

Those who don't love her for her over-the-top sexiness are those who still act like playable female characters are a brand new concept thus we must support any and all of them even if they are overtly sexy like Bayonetta.

Her overt sexiness is actually seen as a sign of independence by feminists who in the past have decried characters like Morrigan Aensland, Ivy Valentine, and Mai Shiranui.

Let's face it: had they starred a foul-mouthed, gun-toting, overly-sarcastic guy who flashed his privates people wouldn't have paid attention to those games.

16 She replaced Wolf in Smash 4

Wrong maybe she didn't replace Wolf since Wolf was already cut to begin with but as was mentioned elsewhere on this list she didn't actually "win" the ballot per se. Verbatim from the other comment: Being "very popular in Europe" (the number three market behind the US and Japan) and "within the top five" (if she'd actually been number one they would have just said so) were the reasons given for her inclusion.

Wrong she won the ballot and Wolf did not so she did not replaced him. - DaisyandRosalina

Yeah! That's why Wolf is cut. T_T

17 She is rated M

To think Smash 4 has a *lower* ESRB rating than its predecessors

18 Her "ask your mum" taunt

Several of the characters have "mums" that have died or disappeared (this explicitly being mentioned or shown in their games of origin) and in some of those cases their mothers' fates are what drives the plot of their original games/the character's actions in said games. Ness's mother may be alive and well but in "Earthbound" he could get "homesick" and not be able to do much if he hadn't seen or called her in a while. And while one of Lucina's potential mothers (only her father's identity is set in stone in "Fire Emblem Awakening", the mother could very well end up being fem Robin if the player so dictates) is actually in "Smash" herself with Lucina, but there's that whole thing about Lucina having traveled back in time to prevent a bad future where among other things whoever her mother was things did not end well for said mother. Of the remaining characters, best case scenario we don't know the status or fate of their mothers (or fathers) or even what kind of relationship they may ...more

Seriously it's just a taunt, characters are not programmed to have emotions in that game - DaisyandRosalina

If we really push the definition, Luma's "mum" is also present and alive, but of course the demise of Rosalina's own mum is a big part of her backstory.

Like she's really in a position to say that

Seriously it's just someone's opinion that they don't like this taunt or the person making it, you are way too emotional over people not bowing down to your precious obnoxious slut demon goddess.

19 Her game title is unplanned
20 Her clothes and her hair are one and the same

And of course that's even if you can even call them "clothes". Either way, creepy and actually kind of disgusting.
