Like many other adventure games, Cereza and the Lost Demon features a skill tree where players can invest points and resources to strengthen their character. This guide will cover all Cereza skills and what players must do to unlock each.

The grid below will show all unlockable skills for Cereza and the requirement to unlock each. The good news is that a handful of these skills are unlocked by default—giving players an excellent leg to stand on from the start.

Players must find and unlock the Sanctuary first before unlocking new skills. The Sanctuary is a safe place where players can unlock new skills, save their game, create new items, etc. Without further ado, here are Cereza’s skills in the new Bayonetta.
