Bayonetta as a Feminist Character
Analyze the negative reception of Bayonetta’s attire, behavior, in the games she is featured. She is resurfaced as a playable character in the Newest Smash game, and though she is provocatively dressed and mischevious in morals, it can be argued that she is well aware of these qualities and is not being forced to dress this way. Therefore this character isn’t a sexist interpretation because the character is aware and okay with who she is. Her appearance represents her expression of self, not a female character with no reason wearing revealing armor.
