Ellie is a normal elephant villager in the Animal Crossing series. She first appeared in Doubutsu no Mori, and after her appearance in Doubutsu no Mori e+, she remained absent from the series until Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo. Her name is a pun on her species.

In New Horizons, Ellie has the nature hobby and may be found reading a book pertaining to an item she is studying, which can be either flowers, bugs, fish, or fossils.


Artwork of Ellie from Animal Crossing.


Ellie is a tan elephant with light pink cheeks, trunk, and ears. The tip of her tail is also light pink. Ellie also has a large, red mouth on the left side of her face. When Ellie's mouth is closed, it has a half-smile shape like most of the other elephants. Her belly is white and she has light brown hands and feet.


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

As a normal villager, Ellie is very kind and very rarely gets mad. If the player refuses a chore, she may react with disappointment but her mood will not change. However, she will become sad if the player hits her with a net or excessively pushes her around. Like all normal villagers, Ellie will wake up at 5 AM and go to sleep at 9 PM. Being normal she will be open to all personalities, so will get along with most villagers.

    In New Horizons[edit]

    In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, if Ellie is one of the villagers who moved in during the main storyline after the villager house development quest, her house will have a combination of non-craftable furniture, plus items crafted by players during the island development storyline, primarily from the Wooden Series. She cannot have her initial house interior unless she moves out of the player's island or the Happy Home Paradise DLC is purchased, in which either the player or Isabelle can reset the interior.
