Marina is a normal, octopus villager whose debut appearance was in Doubutsu no Mori e+ as an islander. She later re-appeared in Animal Crossing: Wild World, Animal Crossing: City Folk, and Animal Crossing: New Leaf where she is a villager. She probably is named after marinas, which are sheltered harbors where boats are kept in the water. Her Japanese name, Takorina, has "tako" in it, which means octopus in Japanese. Her initial catchphrase is a reference to the onomatopoeia of an octopus squirting ink.



Marina is a pink octopus with eight tentacles altogether for arms and legs. She has a "jet", relocated to mimic a mouth, and black eyes with a single eyelash on each. Her cheeks are light yellow and she has a quiff of hair above her eyes. On the back of her head, there is a small pink bow, which is barely noticeable, since her head is pink too.


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

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 sisterly villagers. She has a very kind personality.

Like the rubbery texture of her skin, Marina is polite yet firm. But mainly polite. Wait—can skin be polite? We're sorry. This metaphor got away from us.
