Bayonetta Fast and Cheap Unlock Guide by ahojed

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- Introduction -

Bayonetta is an over-the-top Japanese action game in the vein of Devil May Cry.
It's pretty fun.  There are a ton of unlockable items and some of them are
really hard (or tedious) to unlock.  Luckily, there are in-game shortcuts...
depending on how much gamer pride you want to give up.  This guide goes over
those shortcuts.  I think it's more fun to play around with all the unlockables
and enjoy the game, rather than forcing yourself to spend so much time
unlocking something that might end up being a disappointment.  And hence, a
quick unlock guide.  This guide is meant to be read before starting and is
spoiler free.  You can easily apply it to wherever you are in the game though.
Default control assignments are assumed.

Here's some quick default controls notes, this guide uses the XBox 360 default
controls:

X X360 = Square PS3
Y X360 = Triangle PS3 = P (Punch)
A X360 = X PS3
B X360 = Circle PS3 = K (Kick)
LB X360 = L1 PS3
LT X360 = L2 PS3
RB X360 = R1 PS3
RT X360 = R2 PS3
LS = Left Analog Stick

If you have anything interesting to add, please email me at ahojed@yahoo.com.
Any feedback, positive or negative (as well as suggestions), are very much
desired.  If you liked this guide, please show your thanks by visiting my
friend's web comic http://gw.aswembar.net.  Thanks!

An extra thanks to Patchumz and ShinohanDotCom... I used information from them.
Thanks also to thecrobar's guide, I used it to find the locations of all the
hearts/pearls/alfheim/disks.  I've noted the sections.

1. Fast and Cheap Unlock Guide

This is a simple guide to getting all the unlockables in Bayonetta as quickly
as possible.  Basically, it's a halo farming and item collecting guide, created
by combining various other guides and forum posts.  Default control assignments
are assumed.  This guide is meant to be read before starting and is spoiler
free.  You can easily apply it to wherever you are in the game though.  Even
following this guide, you're still likely to spend 13 hours or to get all but
the last two unlockables.  Even after you've collected everything, there's
still the other modes and challenges to complete, so you're not really robbing
yourself out of fun or challenges by rushing unlocks.  Using this guide, you
don't have to be very good at action games to get everything.  Many of the
unlocks we're going to do are via codes in normal mode.  The unlocks still
costs tons of halos (and your gaming dignity), but in return you can play
around with all the items faster.  If you start to find unlocking things a
chore, then DON'T DO IT.  Play to have fun, who cares if it takes a little
longer.  But to unlock quickly...

a) Starting a New Game, Getting 100K Halos

First of all, you'll want to play on normal.  You get more halos this way and
you'll get to unlock hard mode.  I wouldn't worry too much about going out of
the way collecting hearts pieces, magic pieces, or LPs on your first run.  I'd
say just collect whatever you find.  I would recommend against playing the
Alfheim Portals on your first run, they're much easier with better items.  But
go ahead if you want.

By the time you reach Level 8, you'll need to have Durga from Chapter 5, the
Skates from Chapter 6, and have saved up at least 100,000 halos to get
"Selene's Light", which puts you in automatic Witch Time mode.  I had more than
enough halos by then and I basically button mashed (PKP!) my way through
fights.  My tips for early halos... dodge a lot and try to keep up decent
combos.  Always trade for Halos in the Angel Attack mini game.  Don't waste
money on items, just use continues.  Don't buy anything, you don't need it.  If
you have extra halos, buy Gaze of Despair after Selene's Light.  You don't need
the Gaze immediately, but get it the minute you have enough extra halos.

If you're having a really hard time collecting Halos, replay Chapter 2.  Use
the train in the first area to get to the second floor.  Destroy all the
benches on the second floor, then jump onto the train.  The train will drive
out the tunnel and you'll get a decent halo bonus.  You can then exit to
chapter select and repeat as necessary.  But it really shouldn't be necessary.

So, start a normal game.  Get to level 5 and make sure to get Durga.

Durga (Claws)
Location: Chapter 5 - The Lost Holy Grounds - Split into Three parts
Part One: Found after defeating Grace and Glory early in the level.
Part Two: Found at the bottom of the windy bridge, after verse 4.
Part Three: Found while going up the snake pathway.  Part of the way up there
is a fountain, jump off the snake path and onto the fountain.  Circle around to
the other side to find the piece.

Then play Level 6 and make sure to get the Ice Skates.

Odette (Skates)
Location: Chapter 6 - Gates of Paradise - Split into Three parts
Part One: Directly behind you in a chest when the level starts.
Part Two: In the second area with the Inspired, there is a breakable rock wall
on the left side of the area after you enter.  It's in a chest behind that.
Part Three: Reward for defeating the Joy(s) at the end of the level.

Next, make your way to Level 8.  Then return to Level 7 by hitting RB at the
chapter screen, then choosing chapter select.

b) Farming Chapter 7, ~1M Halos in 7 minutes

For some nice farming, you should have Durga, Odette, and Selene's Light
accessory.

Now, we're going to keep replaying Level 7 for awhile.  Once you get good at
this, you should be able to make over a million halos in about 6 minutes.  Even
if you're bad at it, you should make 500,000 halos easily.

Equip Durga on your hands and Odette on your feet.  Equip Selene's Light and,
as soon as you can, Gaze of Despair.  Durga must be in lightning mode, not fire
mode.  Switch modes by rotating the LS stick and pressing Y (or whatever you've
assigned for P).  Durga is used for its quick attacks, the skates for quick
movement.  Selene's Light will put you in Witch Mode automatically, at the cost
of magic, which means you won't lose your combo if you get hit.  You don't need
magic for anything else anyway, so it's a great deal.  The Gaze of Despair
makes the boss harder, which means it'll take more hits to beat it, so you can
get a higher combo.  Gaze of Despair will basically double the halos you get.

The "secret" to getting halos is to get really high combos.  We'll do this by
spamming Y, Durga's quick electric claws, against the boss.  Destroy both arms
normally, trying to keep up your combo.  If you lose it, oh well.  After
destroying the second arm during climax, RUSH to the first closest front body
gem and destoy it.  RUSH USING PANTHER MODE to the second gem on the front and
destroy it.  RUSH USING PANTHER MODE to the final gem on the back.  You're
rushing to try and keep your combo gage from when you destroyed the second arm.
If you do this right, you should easily get at least a 7000 hit combo, which is
a lot of halos.  If not, better luck next time; don't worry about it.  The most
halos are coming from the next part, the head.

So now you're fighting the head.  If you don't have full life and don't think
you can kill the head, go ahead and let it kill you, then continue.  You'll
start at the head with full life.

Either way, start fighting the head by spamming Y against it.  Try to dodge its
attacks if you can, but never lose your combo.  If you lose your combo, let it
kill you and continue fresh.  If you can, let the head eat you (where it forces
you to rotate the LS) because afterwards you'll get free hits against the boss.
Eventually, you'll kill it.  By then, if you have the Gaze of Despair equipped,
you'll easily have a 9999 hit combo.  Do the Climax as soon as you're prompted,
your combo won't continue after you're offered it.

Keep replaying Level 7 until you have 5 Million halos.  Each replay will count
towards the 100 levels you need to complete for the Sai-Fon weapon anyway.

c) Farming Chapter 3, ~2M Halos in 3 minutes

For better farming, you're going to need the Climax Bracelet.

Once you have 5 million, return to stage 2.  Go to verse 3, right after Luka is
introduced.  In this area you can unlock the secret items without having to
fulfill the requirements via codes.  You still need to pay for them .  Outside
of combat, stand in front of one of the telephones and input a code.  If it
doesn't work, keep doing it, the D-Pad sucks.  Eventually you'll get the
unlock, it may take a lot of tries.  A noise will play and the required halos
will be visibly subtracted if you did it correctly.  All directions are input
using the D-Pad, all buttons are the default assignments.  The left phone by
the stairs is used for Weapon unlocks, the right phone for Accessories, and the
stand alone phone on the other end of the plaza by the car is for Characters.

Here's another secret.  If you return to the title screen IMMEDIATELY after
unlocking a character (before the game can save), you can go back to where you
left off by using "continue" and you'll have unlocked the character AND kept
your halos.  This does not work with weapons and accessories.  So unlock
Jeanne, return to title screen, continue, unlock Little Zero, return to title
screen, and continue.  Here are the codes:

  Unlock Jeanne (Character) - Requires 1 Million Halos:
  Up, Up, Up, Up, Down, Down, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B

  Unlock Little Zero (Character) - Requires 5 Million Halos:
  Up, Up, Up, Up, Down, Down, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, X

Now unlock the Climax Bracelet, which when equipped makes you a stronger Boss
Mode Bayonetta, complete with her automatic Wicked Weave attacks.  If you use
this item, your score does not get sent to the leader boards.  Also, your "Play
History" will be missing a lot of statues.  But it makes unlocking stuff much
easier.  Here's the code.

  Unlock Climax Bracelet (Accessory) - Requires 5 Million Halos:
  Up, Up, Up, Up, Down, Down, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, RT

After unlocking the bracelet, might as well finish the level.  Rush through
with Panther Mode.

Return to Chapter 3 and equip the climax bracelet.  After defeating the first
wave of enemies, head up the stairs at the back of the area.  Attack the
trashcan here to open an Alfheim portal underneath the nearby overhang.  In
this one you need to stay in the air for 20 seconds.  But we're not going to do
that.  What we have here is an unlimited supply of easy enemies and 2 full
minutes to combo them.  Equip the Climax Bracelet and something else (Selene's
Light/Gaze of Despair/Bracelet of Time).  Use whatever weapon you want (I think
Kusheida or Durga are pretty good for this) and rack up a huge combo.  Once you
fail the challenge, you'll get millions of halos from your high combo and can
immediately rush back and do the challenge all over again.  So every 2.5
minutes, you should be making a couple millions halos.  You don't have to skip
cutscenes or Angel Attack... it goes by really fast.  Get 15 millions halos or
so.

d) The Rest

Go to the "Gates of Hell" and buy everything.  Go back to Chapter 2 and use the
rest of the codes as follows:

  Unlock Bazillions (Weapon) - Requires 1 Million Halos:
  Up, Up, Up, Up, Down, Down, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, Y

  Unlock Bracelet of Time (Accessory) - Requires 3 Million Halos:
  Up, Up, Up, Up, Down, Down, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, LT

  Unlock Eternal Testimony (Accessory) - Requires 2 Million Halos:
  Up, Up, Up, Up, Down, Down, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, RB

  Unlock Pillow Talk (Weapon) - Requires 1 Million Halos:
  Up, Up, Up, Up, Down, Down, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, A

  Unlock Rodin (Weapon) - Requires 3 Million Halos:
  Up, Up, Up, Up, Down, Down, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, LB

Pillow Talk with the Climax Bracelet accessory is really, really powerful.  For
your second accessory, use Moon of Mahaa..., Evil Rosary Beads, or Selene's
Light... whatever is comfortable.  Now finish up normal mode.  If it wasn't
easy before, it definitely is now.  Might as well collect all the health and
magic pieces while you go through.  Do the Alfeim portals too.  Once you finish
normal mode, you'll unlock the handguns and gallery, as well as more items in
the Gates of Hell.  Go buy all of those too.

Set your difficulty to easy and go back through the stages, collecting the
heart and magic pieces you missed.  Do all the Alfheim Portals too.  You want
to do this on easy because you need to beat all stages on easy in order to
unlock the Immortal Marionette (which isn't that useful, by the way, just gives
you automatic targeting.)  If you don't care about the Marionette, do the
stages on normal instead so they'll count towards Sai-Fon.  Once you've beaten
all Alfheim Portals, you should have unlocked Angel Slayer (which you probably
don't have the skill to beat at this point).  Finish up the rest of the stages
on easy if you want the accessory, it should be a breeze.

Now you have all items except for Sai-Fon.  You'll need to complete 100 stages
(on at least Normal difficulty, but I recommend playing through Hard.)  The 100
stages should be fun since you can replay them however you'd like.  If you've
closely followed this guide, you may not be too good at the game since you just
rushed through while button mashing... it's fun to take some time now to learn
to play correctly.  But if you really want to speed things up, replay short
levels like the Prologue.

Even with all the unlockables, there's more challenges to do.  Beating Hard
Mode (which is fun and has VERY different enemy placements compared to Normal
Mode) will get you Non Stop Infinite Climax (NSIC) mode, which is just hard
mode without Witch Time.  I didn't like NSIC mode much.  You can fight Rodin by
buying the Platinum Ticket in the Gates of Hell.  He's pretty tough, I can't
beat him without the Climax Bracelet.  There's also the Angel Slayer lost
chapter, which I can't beat either.

You can also go and get all the achievements.  Or collect the Umbra Tears (bo-
ring.)  You can replay the game as Jeanne (and do this guide all over again for
slightly modified skins with slightly modified gameplay) or with Little Zero, a
flying demon character, who is not fun to play as at all and dies in two hits.
So even if you rush through to unlock everything, there's still tons to do, and
in my opinion, it's more fun because you get to do it with whatever items you
want.

As a postscript, you might have read about the Chapter 2 boss farming method,
which can give you something like 10 to 20 million halos a go.  I don't
recommend this method UNLESS you want to unlock everything without codes.  In
that case, it's the best method.  Otherwise, it requires more items than the
other methods I've outlined, takes longer than what I've outlined, and
performing it requires a little actual skill at the game.  Look in the forums
for the actual method.  You'll need the Bracelet of Time (the sum of all 16
chapters completion time must be less than 3 hours), all moon pearls, Kilgore,
and Durga.  But you'll get at least 10 million halos for every run through
Chapter 2.

2. (Witch Heart / Moon Pearl / Alfheim Portal / LP) Location Guide

Here are the heart/pearl/alfheim/disk locations by chapter.  They're available
at any difficulty.  I found them using thecrobar's guide (v 1.3) and
redescribed the locations in a format that I think is easier to follow.  Thank
thecrobar, not so much me, for this section.  The items should roughly be in
the correct order you'll find them in the chapter, email me if you find a
problem.  I have no plans to include the tomes or umbras:

-----------------
P. Prologue
-----------------

None

-----------------
I. Chapter 1
-----------------

MOON PEARL 1 - This pearl is underneath the train at the start of the area.  In
this first area, use the train to jump to the second level.  Destroy all the
benches along the two long walls.  The train will move and the pearl is on the
train tracks.

ALFHEIM 1, MOON PEARL 2 - Get to where you activate the elevator after using
the statues to run across the water, but don't use the elevator.  Instead, go
back to the pit you got the key from.  In this Alfheim portal, the enemies can
only be damaged in witch time.  It shouldn't be hard.

WITCH HEART 1 - After the cutscene with Rodin, the heart will be on a balcony
in the same room.

WITCH HEART 2 - Outside the building where you met Rodin, the heart is on the
right side by the trees.  This is right before where you fight that ends with
the first Beloved.

LP 1 Shotguns (Onyx Rose) - This appears when you defeat the first Beloved.
It's obvious.

WITCH HEART 3 - In the church room after defeating the first Beloved, the moon
pearl will be on a ledge.

-----------------
II. Chapter 2
-----------------

WITCH HEART 4 - After the flashback at the start of the level, destroy the
statues directly above you.

WITCH HEART 5 - After meeting Luka, check the left side of the area.  It's near
a chest.

ALFHEIM 2, MOON PEARL 3 - This portal is where the burning train came from.  In
this Alfheim portal, you must defeat a Beloved with limited punches and kicks.
Hold off on this portal until you can use charged attacks to beat this easily.

ALFHEIM 3, WITCH HEART 6 - Next to the burning train, there's a platform
between the two buildings.  The portal is on the platform.  In this Alfheim
portal, just defeat the enemies.

LP 2 Shuraba (Sword) - This appears after defeating the two Beloved.  It's
obvious.

ALFHEIM 4, MOON PEARL 4 - After defeating the two Beloved, backtrack as far as
possible, to the door you needed to break in Witch Time.  The portal is there.
In this Alfheim portal, you need to use at least 6 torture attacks while
killing all of the other enemies.  This one is hard, you need to build up a lot
of magic and can't get hit much.  Kushedra is the best weapon for this because
it's weak.  Tap Y while in Witch Time for best results.  Dodging into Witch
Time gives you magic.  COMPLETING a taunt does too... tapping LB gives you 1,
holding LB down gives you 4.  Using the staff Angel Arm, then pressing K and
rotating the LS will give you a lot of magic too.  Good luck.

WITCH HEART 7 - Before using the statues to cross the bridge, jump up on a
ledge near the Witch Time bridge.  It's on top of the tree on that ledge, not
in a chest.

MOON PEARL 5 - In a chest near the Witch Time bridge at the end of the level.

-----------------
III. Chapter 3
-----------------

ALFHEIM 5, MOON PEARL 6 - Defeat the first wave of enemies.  Destroy the
trashcans in this first area.  One of them opens a portal on a nearby ledge.
In this Alfheim portal, you need to stay in the air for 20 seconds.  Come back
later in the game with the crow ability or Kulshedra weapon (Hold Y in the air)
to make this very easy.

LP 1 Whip (Kulshedra) - Appears after defeating the first Fearless.  It's
obvious.

ALFHEIM 6, WITCH HEART 8 - On the balcony near the Witch Time bridge from
Chapter 2 where you got Witch Heart 7.  In this Alfheim portal, you need to
defeat the enemies with Angel Arms.  Using the staff Angel Arm, then press K
and rotate the LS.  Or use the Angel Arm that turns into a bow when you press
K.  Easy.

MOON PEARL 7 - Directly after entering the caves, located in a chest behind
you.

LP 2 Whip (Kulshedra) - When you enter Paradiso later in the chapter, turn left
to see a small island off the side of the area.  You can walk over there.

ALFHEIM 7, MOON PEARL 8 - When you enter Paradiso later in the chapter, turn
right to see a small island off the side of the area.  The portal is here, you
can walk to it.  In this Alfheim portal, you need to defeat all of the enemies
without using Witch Time.  It shouldn't be hard.

WITCH HEART 9 - When you enter Paradiso later in the chapter, to the right of
where you get the hourglass.  It's by a giant tree.

ALFHEIM 8, WITCH HEART 10 - After using the hourglass on the bridge, backtrack
to the cave you landed in to find it.  In this Alfheim portal, you need to use
wicked weaves to defeat the enemies.  Equip Shuraba and continually use PKP.
Or come back with the climax bracelet later.

WITCH HEART 11 - Before going up the shaft, this heart is in a chest to your
left right after the lava spouts.

WITCH HEART 12 - In the area after going up the shaft, this chest is near the
side.

-----------------

LP 1 Claws (Durga) - Appears after defeating the first Grace and Glory.  It's
obvious.

be damaged in Witch Time.

WITCH HEART 13 - After the first Harmonies, this heart is in a nearby chest.

LP 2 Claws (Durga) - After defeating the first Harmonies, at the bottom of the
windy stairs.  It's obvious.

MOON PEARL 10 - At the top of the windy stairs right before the tower with the
Ardor, in a chest to the left.

ALFHEIM 10, WITCH HEART 14 - When you use Witch Walk to climb up the tower, get
to the point right before you'd go to the next area, a little after defeating
the Harmonies.  Go back to the bottom of the tower, where you fought the first
Ardors, to find the portal.  In this Alfheim portal, you need to stay in the
air for 60 seconds.  The easiest way to do this is to equip the Kulshedra.
Double Jump, hold Y to grab an enemy, double jump again in the air, and repeat
until you're done.  You can also come back with Crow form later as a backup
plan, to make this even easier.

ALFHEIM 11, WITCH HEART 15 - When you get to the snake rock path before the
first Inspired fight, the portal is directly behind you.  In this Alfheim
portal, you need to defeat a Grace and Glory with limited punches and kicks.
Use charged moves.

the bottom level with the water.)  The LP is in a chest behind the breakable
wall.

ALFHEIM 12, MOON PEARL 11 - After you defeat the Angels in the first room with
all the spikes, head back to where you fought the two Inspired to find the
portal.  In this Alfheim portal, you need to use at least 5 torture attacks
while killing all of the other enemies.  Kushedra is the best weapon for this
because it's weak.  Tap Y while in Witch Time for best results.  Dodging into
Witch Time gives you magic.  COMPLETING a taunt does too... tapping LB gives
you 1, holding LB down gives you 4.  Using the staff Angel Arm, then pressing K
and rotating the LS will give you a lot of magic too.  Good luck.

LP 3 Skates (Odette) - After defeating the Joys in Paradiso.  It's obvious.

WITCH HEART 18 - After defeating the Joys in Paradiso, it's behind the portal
inside of a chest.

the Sun Symbol that was the entrance to the courtyard in Chapter 1 (the room
with the Rodin scene.)  Break the door and find the portal.  In this Alfheim
portal, you can only damage enemies when you press X to leave your body behind.
Simply lure the enemies towards you, run to the other side of the screen, press
X to ditch your body, then run back and the defeat the enemies.  Keep an eye on
your body, just in case some enemies happen to make their way there.

WITCH HEART 22 - Appears after you construct the key.  It's obvious.

LP 2 Rockets (Kilgore) - Appears after you defeat the two Kinships.  It's
obvious.

MOON PEARL 13 - After the fight with the Kinships, in a chest to the left.

ALFHEIM 14, WITCH HEART 23 - After defeating the Kinships, stand on the
stationary one from the fight and look into the distance to see a floating
golden platform.  It can be hard to see.  The portal is there, use Crow form
(buy from the Gates of Hell) to reach it.  In this one, you have to fight
Jeanne.  No restrictions, it shouldn't be hard.

LP 3 Rockets (Kilgore) - Near the Gates of Hell portal, instead of using the
golden path, jump over the huge gap.  Run up the stairs with the monster
statues to find another door marked with a sun.  The LP is behind that
breakable door.

MOON PEARL 15 - After defeating the three Kinships, jump over them to a golden
platform.

WITCH HEART 27 - After killing three kinships, jump over them to a golden
platform.  Look to to see another golden platform far in the distance.  Use
crow form to reach it.

ALFHEIM 17, WITCH HEART 28 - Once you get to the Gates of Hell portal,
backtrack to the area before the tentacles.  The portal is there.  In this
Alfheim portal, you need to defeat the enemies with Angel Arms.  Using the
staff Angel Arm, then press K and rotate the LS.  Or use the Angel Arm that
turns into a bow when you press K.  Easy.

WITCH HEART 29 - Attack the wall next to the Gates of Hell portal to break it.

-----------------
XI. Chapter 11

None

-----------------
XII. Chapter 12
-----------------

WITCH HEART 30 - At the start of the level, directly behind you.

WITCH HEART 31 - After almost falling out of the plane, in a chest on a catwalk
above you.

ALFHEIM 18, WITCH HEART 32 - After almost falling out of the plane, go into
crow mode and fly across the open cargo bay to the yellow door you entered
from, then backtrack to the start of the level.  Fight the monsters there and
the portal will appear.  In this Alfheim portal, you can only damage enemies
when you press X to leave your body behind.  Lure the enemies close and then
run across and ditch your body.  Kill the enemies while keeping an eye on your
body.

ALFHEIM 19, WITCH HEART 33 - After almost falling out of the plane, go to the
next area where there's a rotating thing you have to jump on.  From here, you
can jump into an area with propellers on the right side of the platform, right
before the cutscene that leads to the fight with Jeanne.  In the propeller
room, you'll fight enemies, but you shouldn't kill them.  Instead, use them to
go into Witch Time so you can run past all the propeller blades.  The portal is
after the blades.  In this Alfheim portal, just beat Golem.  When you return,
the propellers can be destroyed from behind, so you no longer have to worry
about the not killing enemies.

XIII. Chapter 13
-----------------

None

-----------------
XIV. Chapter 14
-----------------

WITCH HEART 34 - When you fight enemies on top of the missle itself, make sure
to kill the last one with a torture attack.

WITCH HEART 35 - When you fight enemies on top of the missle itself again, make
sure to kill the last one with a torture attack.

-----------------
XV. Chapter 15
-----------------

WITCH HEART 36 - After the turret gunning section, back track all the way back
to the start of the level and panther mode jump across a huge gap.  The heart
is in a chest here.

ALFHEIM 20, WITCH HEART 37 - After the turret gunning section, back track all
the way back to the start of the level and panther jump across a huge gap.  In
this Alfheim portal, you have no Witch Time and all of the enemies are on fire.
Good luck.

WITCH HEART 38 - In the room with the Jubileus statue, located in a chest
around the base of the room.  Just move from section to section until you find
it in a chest.

WITCH HEART 39 - At the top of the tower, after going past the vanishing
platforms and right before going on the platform to leave the area.  The Witch
Heart is in a chest on a different platform in the golden area.

MOON PEARL 16 - At the top of the tower, after going through the vanishing
platforms and right before leaving the area.  The Moon Pearl is in a chest on a
different platform in that golden area.

-----------------
XVI. Epilogue
-----------------

ALFHEIM 21, WITCH HEART 40 - Get to the foot of the Jubileus statue after all
the collapsing gold stuff.  Walk forward until you get around the Jubileus
statue's neck.   Backtrack from here down to below the foot of the statue to
find the final portal.  In this Alfheim portal, you play as Jeanne and can only
damage enemies with Wicked Weaves.  It should be easy, you can still equip all
of Bayonetta's stuff.

3. Chapter 2 Farming Notes - ShinohanDotCom

Visit Shinohan's site for the best guide I've seen to doing the Chapter 2
farming technique, complete with a video.  If you don't want to use any codes
to unlock things, this is really the way to go.  It's basically exploiting the
"Kilgore Glitch."  It requires a lot of magic, weapons, and the Bracelet of
Time (which is unlocked by beating the game in under 3 hours.)  You'll need to
be able to relaible perform combos and switch weapons all while holding the LB
button.  Here's the URL that explains the technique:

4. More Chapter 7 Farming Notes - Patchumz

(I couldn't figure out how to ask Patchumz if I could repost this since all I
had was his username.  Contact me and I can remove this section.  This is just
a more detailed explanation to performing the Chapter 7 farming than I provided
earlier.)

Directly from GameFAQS Forum by Patchumz

Alright, since the last guy to post this failed hardcore and earned you about
30k every 4 minutes, here's my way of doing it.

There's a couple pre-requisites for this awesome method, but not much.

First off, you have to have gotten to the Chapter VII (7) boss.

Second, make sure you have Selene's Light (I think it's called) and the Gaze of
Despair accessories. If you don't have Gaze of Despair, do my method once
without it, and you'll be able to afford it.

Third, you need to have the Durga claws, no need for alts, only need them on
your hands.. Ice Skates are nice for feet to help movement when not best
running, but not required.

Alright, now.. put all that stuff on, you don't have to worry about your
alternate weapon set, you won't be using it. Go to the boss, he's the only
thing you fight in the entire level.. make sure your Durga claws are on
Lightning Mode, not Fire Mode. Now, spam Y.. no need for anything else, just
spam Y when he's around, take care of those hands of his.

Important thing to try to do, when he punched and breaks your platform, keep
attacking the other hand that's holding it, when the platform is gone, you'll
be able to spam Y in the air and air combo the hand for a while without
breaking combo, once you fall, don't worry.. you won't lose any life, you'll
get put back on the platform.

Rip off both arms eventually, and during that time you don't have to worry
about dodging much of anything, maybe a bullet if you want (The fire things he
shoots), your Selene's Light accessory should give you Witch Time every time he
hurts you, which increases your combo and increases the killing speed.

Now, after his arms are gone, you fight all the orbs on his body. One is on the
left slightly behind you, one is on the right slightly behind you.. when you
destroy one, it sends you back to the middle of his body, if you hurry and
beast run to the other side (I usually start on the left, then do the right,
then the back.. obviously) you won't break combo, which is great, if you do,
don't worry about it. Not the end of the world, but it does help to not break
combo if you can.

After all his orbs are broken, you'll fight his head.. now here's the first
part that you might actually have to think about when fighting :P Make sure you
dodge most of his attacks so you don't die, cuz chances are the defenses you
had to deal with while fighting the orbs took you down quite a bit of health.
If you're good enough to dodge all the orb defenses then you should probably be
fine taking ALL the damage the head deals. But above all else, every time you
see a weird black/purple spiny tentacle thing come out of his mouth, let it
grab you, you'll want to rotate the joystick, and it knocks his head down,
where you have time to beat on it without getting damaged.

And that's about all, once you kill him, you should have 8,000,000 or more
combo score at the very end, that's 800k halos, add in the no item bonus and
boss bonus and stuff and you can easily get more. Don't worry if you die, you
won't lose close to anything by doing so, combo score is the only thing that
matters in this. You can die 5 times and it won't matter.. as long as you don't
break combo too often and stuff you'll be good to go.

(Note: If you don't have Gaze of Despair you'll probably get around 2m-4m combo
score, earning about half or less than WITH it, in case you don't have it yet)
