Iustitia, the Cardinal Virtue of Justice and Giver of Life, is an enemy boss in Bayonetta, one of the Auditio seeking to recover the Left Eye of the World and revive Jubileus. He is the third Auditio to be encountered and fought in a boss chapter.

Hierarchy of LagunaEdit

Within Paradiso's Divine Will, also known as the Cardinal Virtues, Iustitia is known to take a particularly strange physical manifestation. A large mass covered with numerous faces, and extending outwards via countless tentacles, Iustitia could easily pass for a demon.

This may be due to the fact that those depicting the angel are filled beyond comprehension with awe of the sheer difficulty of encouraging justice in the world. Among Paradiso's Divine Will, there are those who believe that Iustitia is the closest of the Cardinal Virtues to Inferno.

Justice is said to be based upon rules established by man, to be followed by man, and changing one's viewpoint can lead to a change in what is evil. This uncertainty may be a manifestation of the existing folklore and depictions of Iustitia.


The Cardinal Virtue of Justice and Giver of Life. He is the third Auditio fought. He appears to be a hideous amalgamation of faces and tentacles fused into a ball. Iustitia has seven faces in total. The adult faces have massive tongues protruding from their mouths, ending in child faces. Iustitia has six total tentacles, three that merely protrude from his body and the other three mentioned above (acting as tongues) that are connected to the main organs that vaguely resemble hearts. He later appears in Chapter XI and challenges Bayonetta. He attacks her with two tentacles and a tongue, which has a face and is his weak point. Bayonetta jumps on to the top of the tongue and makes her way to the adult face and hits it, which makes it cough out the "heart" that holds the tongue in place, which she promptly slices off. Retreating back to solid land, Bayonetta has to repeat the same tactic twice more. After this she summons Scolopendra, who squeezes Iustitia apart. Having been defeated, Iustitia compliments her power and is dragged into Inferno.
