Elina is a peppy elephant islander in the Animal Crossing series who appears in Animal Crossing and Doubutsu no Mori e+.



Elina is an orange elephant who has a purple flower in her hair. She has dark brown hair on her head and the tip of her tail. She has green eyes and wears green eyeshadow. The tip of her trunk and hooves are light orange. In the Japanese version, she also has a red dot on her forehead that resembles a bindi, a dot worn by many South Asian women, especially Hindus, for whom elephants are of great religious importance. Elina also has a half-smiling mouth on the left side of her face, like many other elephants.


Below is a brief description of the peppy personality. For more information, click here.

As a peppy islander, Elina has a haughty, forceful nature prone to telling the player how to behave. In conversation, she will often digress into stories about when she was a little girl and will boast about her past athletic prowess. Her bossy personality will often result in coaching the player in how they should hold themselves, play sports, and even how they should burp. Elina speaks using laidback, rustic slang and will ask the player for items that remind her of when she was a little girl.
