Elina Gallery

Elina (ビンディ, Bindi?) is a peppy elephant villager appearing in Animal Forest+ as an islander. She reappears as an islander in Animal Crossing and Animal Forest e+. Her catchphrase is a reference to sea life that can be found commonly around islands. Her Japanese name references the red dot on her forehead that highly resembles a bindi.

As of the Welcome amiibo update in New Leaf, she is currently the only elephant not included in it. 


Elina is an orange elephant who wears a Red Aloha Shirt and has a purple flower in her hair. She has orange skin and brown hair and ears. She also has a red stone or circle on her forehead, known as a bindi, which is worn by many South Asian women, especially Hindus, for whom elephants are of great religious importance. The dot on her forehead is removed in localized versions of the game. Elina also appears to wear green eye shadow and heavy amounts of mascara.


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

Peppy villagers appear to be in a good mood often and are easy to become friends with. As a peppy villager, Elina will have the tendency to over-react in conversations about trivial subjects, and will usually be over-excited to see the player or other villagers. This villager, like other peppy villagers, will rarely be discouraged from doing anything, including the usual hobbies. Peppy villagers dream of becoming famous in the future and read Ms. Nintendique, an unseen magazine read by snooty, normal, and other peppy villagers in the Animal Crossing series. Peppy villagers will also have a very short attention span, which means they soon forget some arguments or tasks given to the player which weren't completed. Elina may easily get upset in conversation when the wrong things are said. She will get along well with other villagers, particularly lazy, normal, jock, sisterly, and other peppy villagers, but she may annoy and upset cranky and snooty villagers, whose personalities differ to hers. Due to the nature of peppy villagers, she may mention how "old" or "boring" cranky villagers are compared to her opposing, upbeat personality.

Fruit Allergy[]

As an islander, she has a favorite fruit and a fruit that she is allergic to. Feeding her the allergy fruit will reduce the likelihood of her dropping money bags. Elina is allergic to apples and loves pears.


  • Oddly enough, Elina's red pearl on her head is gone from her e-Card for an unknown reason.
