|Appears in||R3, Rayman: Hoodlums' Revenge|
Begoniax is a boss from Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc. She is a stout, red-haired, dark-skinned sadomasochistic witch who wears a cauldron on her head. She lives in the Bog of Murk. She also appears as a boss in Rayman: Hoodlums' Revenge, in the Begoniax Bayou.
While Begoniax was using an outhouse in the swamp near her home, Rayman suddenly falls in through its roof, teleported there by Otto Psi's office. Begoniax mistakenly thinks that Rayman is spying on her. She calls him a pervert and storms off to her house, muttering angrily under her breath as Rayman tries to apologise, saying ‘I— I'm sorry, I— I didn't really mean to—’. Rayman then enters her home, where she challenges him to a fight around a huge cauldron full of a hot green potion that temporarily turns anyone who touches it into a frog.
After the fight, she runs to her magic mirror, and stands on a tall chair in front of it, mockingly calling out to Rayman. When Rayman steps through the mirror, he finds himself teleported to another region of the Bog, where he eventually encounters and defeats Count Razoff in his mansion. Begoniax then appears in Razoff's dungeon, possibly having come there via Razoff's own magic mirror. It is then revealed that Begoniax is infatuated with Razofff; she is seen holding and caressing him, with Rayman and Globox witnessing. Telling him ‘Carry me off to your cells and lock me in!’ or ‘Whip me!’ Unfortunately Razoff does not reciprocate her feelings, and repeatedly tells her to ‘Let go!’ or ‘Girl, get off!’ as he tries to struggle free of her grip. She then carries him off. It is unknown what happens to Razoff immediately afterwards, but the minigame Crush, which presumably takes place after the main story, centres around Razoff using his wrecking ball to crush frogs, which have apparently been proliferating in his dungeon since Begoniax's arrival.
One of the frogs in 'Crush' is wearing a cauldron on its head and has red hair. Somehow Begoniax must have turned herself into a frog using her potion or it could have been Razoff so he could get away from her.
Begoniax is seen once more in Rayman: Hoodlums' Revenge. This boss fight is very similar to the one in Rayman 3, though it takes place in a more open environment rather than circling a cauldron.
