— Pause screen caption for Vividria, Kirby Star Allies
Vividria is a Mid-Boss that debuted in Kirby Star Allies. Her name is a pun on "vivid". She yields the Artist ability when swallowed. Vividria wears a dress and has coarse hair that forms a paintbrush. Her ponytail brush is always covered with paint for art creation. She does not have feet, but is capable of hovering. She looks similar to Elline, though much more compact.
As a Mid-Boss
When Vividria is fought as a Mid-Boss, she attacks with the following moves:
- She swings her ponytail brush as a melee attack, which also splashes paint to increase her attack range. This is similar to Paintra's paintbrush melee attacks.
- She swoops while waving her ponytail.
- She pours paint from her ponytail like raining.
- She creates a stone sculpture, which can be a fist or Susie the "Goddess". Then, she moves the sculpture with telekinesis in an attempt to drop it on Kirby.
- She summons a canvas to draw and materialize various enemies, which can be swallowed to obtain Copy Abilities.

As a Friend
Vividria can be recruited as a Friend once she is defeated in battle. She is able to utilize Artist Kirby's moveset once recruited, and is subsequently able to participate in Artist's Friend Abilities. However, she cannot use the 'Painbrush' technique. As a Friend helper, she has the same health as Kirby.
- Vividria refers to her 'sisters' in her pause screen caption. It is currently unknown who her sisters are.
- The booklet included with Kirby Star Allies: The Original Soundtrack features early concept art of Vividria, alongside sketches of Drawcia, Paintra, and Claycia. The former two are labelled with the title "姉様", meaning "elder sister", implying they are Vividria's aforementioned sisters. In contrast, Claycia is given the title "さん", a formal title similar to "Mr" or "Mrs", which implies no family connection in her case. It is unknown if this information still applies to the final version.
- Vividria's name is also similar to those of Drawcia, Paintra, and Claycia, all of whom are female and art-themed.
- Several of Vividria's attacks are similar to Paintra's.
- When she gives an ally a piggyback, Vividria's ponytail falls down.
