|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.|
— 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.
|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!|

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.
|Attacks - Normal|
Upon defeat, Paintra is sucked back into the painting she came from, then the painting shatters with her inside.
- 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.
- Her name is a pun on "paint", which she uses in her boss fight.
- There is a possibility 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.
- Paintra is also revealed as a female in her DededeTour pause screen description, but as a hermaphroditic entity in her story mode pause screen description, most likely because Kirby did not know about her identity.
