Tia is an normal, elephant villager in the Animal Crossing series. She made her debut in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. The first syllable of her name is pronounced the same as "tea." Her catchphrase "teacup" and her name refer to the teapot-like appearance of her head.



Tia NL.png

Tia is a white elephant with blue tips on her hands, feet, and tail. She has a blue flower marking on each side of her face and one on each of her ears, which are rimmed by yellow. She also wears a yellow wavy headband, and she has a yellow ball on top of her head. She has black eyes and wears blue mascara. Her head greatly resembles a teapot, hence her catchphrase. She has pale pink lipstick on her lips.


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

Tia has a normal personality, so she will act shy, but caring toward the player. She will get along well with villagers of any personality type. She will have hygiene concerns, represented when the player visits her house, and she will state her embarrassment at the supposedly unclean appearance of her home. She will mention her interest in reading and the various books she reads. She also will enjoy writing and receiving letters.

Tia has loved teacups ever since she was a little girl. Her collection is pristine. Why wouldn't it be? She's never used any of them, as she much prefers coffee to tea.
