Alraune is a mysterious demon from Inferno akin to Madama Butterfly and Madama Styx who is based around plant imagery. She is the one who holds Jeanne's soul in captivity in order to leech the witch's power in Bayonetta 2. Once a woman who doused herself in mandrake poison and took her own life as a means of getting revenge on the husband who left her. The poison continued through her skin and devoured her soul. Consumed by delusions and hallucinations, she was at last reincarnated in Inferno. Myth places her as the young daughter of a noble estate, but none of her past visage can be determined from her current demon form. She searches the bottom of hell for the most exquisite souls, then injects poison into their nerves to make them eternal "lovers" at her palace. Insatiable desire and obsession have painted her heart so thickly that she will never know peace. Not even with the sacrifices of a thousand souls, or a million...

Weaknesses: If Jeanne's Soul is removed she becomes weaker
- First form: Alraune's primary attacks consist of using her sharp fingernails as claws, spinning them in circular motions or using them in an aerial attack that slams into the ground. Alraune can also absorb the opponents' health piece by piece by attempting to rip their soul out. Like the weapon that eventually gains her namesake, Alraune can also use a vine-like whip from her hands and feet that can lash out during any of her other attacks on ground or in the air. She can place down large flowers around the battlefield that spew out a liquid which will restrain the opponent until she destroys them. Alraune will frequently transform into a flurry of flower petals during certain attacks and negate them.
- Second Form: Alraune retains her upper body while her lower half becomes that of a dragon/scorpion hybrid. Due to this, she relies on the dragon half's claws to lunge at the opponent from afar as her primary means of aggression. Alraune is also able to use Jeanne's soul as an energy source to deal magical attacks.
