This article is about the boss from Kirby: Triple Deluxe, and should not be confused with Drawcia, Claycia, or Vividria.
Quote1.png There was once a painting said to depict a pair of sisters separated at birth. It slept, unnoticed, in a painter's studio for countless years before it came to life and vowed revenge on the world. Quote2.png
— Kirby: Triple Deluxe Boss description

Paintra is a boss making her debut in Kirby: Triple Deluxe. She resembles a witch, but is in fact a living painting, brought to life by the magic power of Taranza. Paintra bears a colorful outfit, complete with two paintbrushes for feet, and attacks by spreading paint, firing energy blasts, and painting pictures that come to life to attack her enemies, much like Ado and Adeleine from previous games would. Paintra is the boss of Triple Deluxe's second Level, Lollipop Land, and she is also battled in The Arena and in Stage 4 of Royal Road.

Battle[edit]

Quote1.png This time, I'm introducing Paintra, the boss of Level 2: Lollipop Land. When Kirby chases Taranza into a workshop, he comes across a forgotten painting in there, which is said to depict a pair of sisters separated at birth. The painting is brought to life as Paintra and starts attacking Kirby. Paintra can turn her body into a paintbrush and splatter paint all over Kirby. She’ll even splatter paint on the screen so you can’t see what’s going on! She also has the ability to make drawings come to life. Don’t forget that you can see descriptions of the bosses if you pause the game during battle! Quote2.png

The following lists all of Paintra's attacks in Story Mode and The Arena in Kirby: Triple Deluxe. Attacks in italics are used in the second phase of the fight only.

Paintra paints the screen in two different swaths, obscuring the player's view of the action.

Attacks - Normal
Attack Description
Energy Blast
Paintra fires three or more orbs of energy in a set path that can be inhaled and spat back at the boss. Paintra will do this move twice in succession in the second phase, usually after a Screen Paint.
Screen Paint
Paintra flies into the foreground, painting the screen in various patterns, often making it more difficult for the player to see what is happening on the screen. This technique breaks the fourth wall. More patterns are available in the second phase.
Brush Swipe
Paintra approaches Kirby and swipes twice with her paintbrush feet in large arcs, producing stars on the second swipe. She will then re-position and attempt this move again.
Paint Splatter
Paintra flies into the background, and starts spinning rapidly, releasing many globs of paint that can be inhaled and spat back at an appropriate time. She then finishes by splatting paint on the screen.
Paint Barrage
Paintra spins in place and fires rapid bursts of paint toward the ground, making stars erupt from the impact spot. She then re-positions and fires again.
Back Dive
Paintra flies into the background and attempts to ram Kirby in a dive. This creates stars where she touches the stage.
Painting Assault
Paintra summons a number of blank canvases, then paints various objects on them, which then pop off the canvas and deal various effects. One of the paintings is a fake and will not do anything, and in fact can often be inhaled and spat back at Paintra. The following are objects that Paintra can paint:
  • Iron Cannon Balls (3) - The real ones fall down and can squish Kirby, but leave small stars on impact.
  • Spiked Metal Drill Rods (3) - The real ones extend outward from the canvas and leave stars on impact. The fake one can't be inhaled, since it's in the background.
  • Landia (4) - The real ones breathe fire, and will attempt to aim toward Kirby. The fake one can't be inhaled, since it's in the background.
  • Paintra Clones (3) - After painting them, Paintra shuffles herself with them. The three paintings can be inhaled and spat at the real Paintra, but Kirby must be quick about it, lest she will hex them and make them explode.
  • Cannons (4) - The real ones fire three successive shots toward the stage at varying angles. The fake one can't be inhaled, since it's in the background.
Canvas Attack
Paintra summons a giant canvas sheet to cover the background and flies behind it. Paintra will then attempt to ram Kirby through the canvas a number of times, once or more.

Upon defeat, Paintra is sucked back into the painting she came from, then the painting shatters with her inside.

Paintra DX[edit]

Quote1.png Born from a forgotten painting made by a mysterious brush, Paintra DX has come to take her revenge. One must wonder if the painter who created her regrets giving her form. Quote2.png
— Kirby: Triple Deluxe Boss description
Paintra DX.

Paintra DX is fought in Dededetour! and in The True Arena. In this appearance, Paintra DX has a notably darker color scheme, with her sporting a black, twisted hat resembling a witch's, purple hair, a red and purple garb, among others.

Paintra DX's attack patterns are made more complex, including firing seven more orbs in Energy Blast. She can also paint a streak of paint in the center of the screen before doing the Painting Assault attack in the second phase, making it more difficult for the player to see the hazards coming from each painting. Paintra DX also gains a new attack where she starts to spin and sweep across the arena.

In Dededetour!, instead of being brought to life by Taranza, Paintra DX awakens without additional aid.

The following lists all of Paintra DX's attacks in Dededetour and The True Arena. Attacks in italics are exclusively used in the second phase. Note that the attack names are conjectural:

Attacks - Normal
Attack Description
Energy Blast DX
Paintra DX fires seven orbs of energy in a set path that can be inhaled and spat back at the boss. Paintra will do this move twice in succession in the second phase, usually after a Screen Paint.
Paint Splatter DX
Paintra DX flies into the background, and starts spinning rapidly, releasing many globs of paint, more than in her normal battle, that can be inhaled and spat back at an appropriate time. She then finishes by splatting paint on the screen. She then sometimes uses Energy Blast DX while the paint is still on the screen.
Brush Swipe DX
Paintra DX approaches Kirby or Dedede and swipes four times with her paintbrush feet in large arcs, producing stars on the final swipe. She will then re-position and attempt this move again.
Screen Paint DX
Paintra DX flies into the foreground, painting the screen in various patterns, often making it more difficult for the player to see what is happening on the screen. This technique breaks the fourth wall. More patterns are available in the second phase. The patterns hinder the players sight more than in her normal battle. This is often combined with other attacks.
Paint Barrage DX
Paintra DX spins in place and fires rapid bursts of paint toward the ground, making stars erupt from the impact spot. She then re-positions and attempts this move two times more.
Back Dive DX
Paintra DX flies into the background and attempts to ram Kirby or Dedede in a dive. This creates stars where she touches the stage.
Canvas Attack DX
Paintra DX summons a giant canvas sheet to cover the background and flies behind it. Paintra will then attempt to ram Kirby or Dedede through the canvas four times.
Painting Assault DX
Paintra DX summons a number of blank canvases, then paints various objects on them, which then pop off the canvas and deal various effects. One of the paintings is a fake and will not do anything, and in fact can often be inhaled and spat back at Paintra DX. The following are objects that Paintra DX can paint:
  • Spiky Iron Cannon Balls (3) - The real ones fall down and can squish Kirby, but leave small stars on impact.
  • Spiked Metal Drill Rods (3) - The real ones extend outward from the canvas and leave stars on impact. The fake one can't be inhaled, since it's in the background.
  • Landia EX (4) - The real ones breathe fire, and will attempt to aim toward Kirby or Dedede. The fake one can't be inhaled, since it's in the background.
  • Paintra DX Clones (3) - After painting them, Paintra DX shuffles herself with them. The three paintings can be inhaled and spat at the real Paintra, but Kirby must be quick about it, lest she will hex them and make them explode.
  • Cannons (4) - The real ones fire five successive shots toward the stage at varying angles. The fake one can't be inhaled, since it's in the background.

This attack is often used while Screen Paint DX is still active.

Circling Brush
Attack exclusive to Paintra DX. Paintra DX starts to spin around in the background and then comes to the stage and circles it back to forth once. She then goes into the foreground and tries to ram into Kirby or Dedede, throwing out paint in the progress. This attack is often followed up by Back Dive DX.

Trivia[edit]

  • One of the objects that Paintra paints is Landia, a prominent boss from Kirby's Return to Dream Land. Additionally, Paintra DX paints Landia EX.
  • It is hinted that Paintra might be Drawcia's sister due to them both having paint-based moves, Paintra's description stating that she and her sister were separated at the time of their birth, and them both having a similar appearance and name. This was seemingly confirmed in the booklet included with Kirby Star Allies: The Original Soundtrack, where sketches of Drawcia and Paintra are seen on a page showing concept art for Vividria and labelled as "姉様" (ane-sama), meaning "elder sister".
