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.

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.
