Bayonetta – Alfheim Portals Walkthrough

A guide that shows where the Alfheim Portals are and how to unlock the Lost Chapter.
Alfheim Portals Walkthrough
Alfheim portals are timed challenges that are scattered throughout various chapters and verses. Completing the portals the first time grants the player either a Broken Witch Heart or a Broken Moon Pearl.

There are 21 Alfheim portals. These portals are often hidden and require backtracking or the completion of a certain task. This guide will show where all the alfheim portals are located.

If the player is interested in unlocking the lost chapter, it is necessary to complete the portals as well as finish the chapter.

The bonus chapter will not unlock if the player completes the challenge, but quits the chapter.

Fun sidenote:

Alfheim is the romanised form of the Old Norse word Alfheimr which means “Elf land” or “Land of the Elves.”

The language that the angels use in Bayonetta is Enochian (it is a real language that was created/recorded by John Dee and Edward Kelley).
