This small barbarian princess is a strong and fierce warrior. No one wields an axe quite like her: she can even glide along on it!—In-game description, Rayman Legends
This adventurer is the definition of girl power. She may have been a princess in the past, but she's long since abandoned her sheltered life for one full of danger and excitement. She's not afraid to get her hands, or her outfit, dirty when needed.—In-game description, Rayman Adventures

Adventurer (as of Adventures)
Barbara is a recurring playable character in the Rayman series, who makes her debut in Rayman Legends, in which she is the princess of the forest and castle worlds of Teensies In Trouble and is the first of ten princesses that Rayman and his friends must rescue. She is first encountered in a room in the Teensies In Trouble gallery in which Dungeon Dash is encountered. Once this level is cleared, Barbara will be rescued and become playable, thus joining the heroes. Barbara then appears as a playable character in Rayman Adventures.
Barbara was first seen for a brief moment in a leaked trailer that was discovered in April 2012, more than a month before the game was officially revealed at E3 in June 2012. A trailer introducing her was released in August 2012.
In the 2014 Nintendo Wii U game Super Smash Bros for Wii U, Barbara can be found as a collectable trophy. She along with the Rayman and Globox trophies are given randomly at any point in the game and are found in the "Other" category, though they cannot be viewed in the Trophy Exhibit in the Gallery (therefore do not have a cabinet of their own). They can however be displayed and arranged in the Photo studio via the Hoard section.
Barbara is a young and beautiful barbarian girl who becomes Rayman's travel companion. Unlike the vast majority of female characters in the Rayman series, Barbara is a human barbarian. In Rayman Legends, she wears a winged helmet, a green outfit consisting of a boobtube, skirt and trousers, tan coloured furry boots, and a brown belt with a skull attached to it. She also has long, curly red hair, with two parts of it tied into ponytails at each side of her head, has one of her teeth missing, and a large scar across her face. Also unlike most characters in the Rayman series, she carries a weapon - a double edged battle axe which she wields to dispatch enemies, but can also use as a board to slide on surfaces.
In Rayman Adventures, Barbara is seen sporting a new look. The changes include changing her helmet with a hat accompanied with mechanical wings and goggles, having shorter, lighter hair, a teal crop top, different arm guards, a brown skirt with a belt and a compass buckle, brown pants, and different boots. Barbara also replaces her axe with a shovel.
Her original outfit can be bought for 500 gems.
