'''Bégoniax''' is a boss character who first appears in ''[[Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc]]''. She is a stout, red-haired, dark-skinned sadomasochistic sadomasochist witch who wears a cauldron on her head. She lives in a hut in [[the Bog of Murk]]. She also appears as a boss in ''[[Rayman: Hoodlums' Revenge]]'', in the [[Bégoniax Begoniax Bayou]]. She is obsessed with her own appearance, and her failed attempts to brew the ultimate beauty potion have left her both insane and hideous. It is unknown what she looked like before she began experimenting with these potions. When the men Bégoniax falls in love with reject her, she subjects them to her love potion, which transforms them into [[toad]]s. She then breeds with these toads[[toad]]s, producing so many tadpoles that she no longer knows what to do with them.
