Marina is a normal octopus in the Animal Crossing series. She first appeared in Doubutsu no Mori e+ as an islander, and she appears in all subsequent games as a villager. The given name Marina comes from the Latin marinus, meaning "of the sea," which relates to her species.

In New Horizons, Marina has the music hobby and may sing anywhere without the need of a stereo.

Characteristics[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Marina is a pink octopus with yellow cheeks and black eyes. Her eyes gain smaller, white pupils when she is shocked. She has a tuft of hair on her forehead. On the back of her head is a pink bow.

Personality[edit]

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

Doubutsu no Mori e+[edit]

As a normal islander in Doubutsu no Mori e+, Marina has a peaceful, spacey nature prone to daydreaming and getting lost in thought. In conversation, she frequently reads the player's aura or comments on the natural beauty of the island. Due to her fanciful outlook on life, she is often kind in dealing with the player but can easily wander off into mystical, eccentric, or even nonsensical conversation. She meditates frequently in her pursuit of harmony and tranquility and will request furniture from the player that she believes will improve her meditation.

Wild World onwards[edit]

Marina is a normal villager. She will appear friendly and motherly to the player. When she asks the player for favors, she will feel bad asking the player to do so. She will be easy to befriend. She may not get along well with cranky and snooty villagers. She has a very kind personality.

Villager information[edit]

In Doubutsu no Mori e+, Marina can only move to Animal Island if her e-Reader card is scanned.

House[edit]

In Doubutsu no Mori e+[edit]

As an islander, Marina's house in Doubutsu no Mori e+ will begin with only one furniture item, along with the Exotic Wall and Bamboo Flooring. She will request specific items for the player to give to her, which she will place in her house. After she places two items in her house, she will upgrade her wallpaper, and after she places five items, she will upgrade her flooring. June requests for the same items as Marina, although her house has different wallpaper and flooring.
