— Cast quote from Kirby's (Extra) Epic Yarn.

Beadrix is a character in Kirby's Epic Yarn and Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn who appears after Kirby and Prince Fluff designs Apartment #201 with the Rainbow Arch and the Camel Sofa in Quilty Square. She is a blue square that is oriented diagonally, with two smaller squares on each side facing upwards. Her English name is a pun on "bead" and the female name "Beatrix", which fits her because she loves beads.

She gives Kirby a challenge called "Beadrix's Run", which consists of collecting as many beads as he can within a time limit in stages already completed. The first time Kirby manages to collect a certain amount of beads, Beadrix will reward him with fabric. Completing a minigame level will make another one available if the level it takes place in has been beaten. There are 20 challenges in all.

Names in other languages[edit]

Language Name Meaning
Japanese ビータン
From「ビーズ」(bīzu, beads) and「~たん」(-tan), an alternative form of「~ちゃん」(-chan)
French Perlanne A feminine name that have the word "perle" (bead)
German Perline Derived from "perle" (bead)
Italian Gemma Italian for "gem", but it's often used as a name too
Korean 구스리
Combination of "구슬" (guseul, bead) and "~이" (-i, Korean noun-forming suffix)
(NB: The final consonant of 구슬 migrating into the suffix syllabic block reflects how one would pronounce the name even if it were written as 구슬이. Indeed, Korean writing is generally morphophonemic rather than purely phonemic, meaning that Korean compound words (whenever practical) preserve the morphology of the underlying morphemes as opposed to always reflecting pronunciation. The writing of the name as 구스리 instead of 구슬이 is thus an idiosyncratic choice of orthography naïve to the constituent root elements, almost childlike)
Latin American Spanish Gemita Diminutive of "gem"
European Spanish Cuentisa Portmanteau of "cuenta" (bead) and feminine name "Isa"
