I'll give it my all, wee one!
― Ellie, Animal Crossing

Ellie (エクレア, Ekurea?, Éclair) is a normal elephant villager from the Animal Crossing series, originally only appearing in the earlier games. Her name comes from the first part of the word elephant. Her Japanese name comes from the pastry Éclair. She has the nature hobby.

Ellie returned to the series in New Leaf, as part of the Welcome amiibo update. By scanning amiibo cards, this villager can be met via the campground and invited to the town.


Ellie in Animal Crossing

Ellie is a light-brown elephant with pink cheeks, and a pink-tipped trunk and ears. She has black pie-eyes with eyelashes or eyeliner flicks. She also has nervous-looking eyebrows, giving her a shy appearance. Ellie's red mouth is on one side of her face. Her stomach is white. Ellie initially wears the Red Grid Tee in every game prior to New Horizons, where she wears a red Aran-Knit Sweater.


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

Ellie has a normal personality, and frequently acts kind towards the player. Normal villagers generally get along well with lazy, peppy, smug, snooty and other normal villagers. Ellie may conflict with cranky and sisterly villagers. As a normal villager, Ellie will usually wake up at 6:00 am and is easier to befriend than most. Both normal and peppy villagers reference an unseen friend known as Moppina.


In Animal Crossing, Ellie's house mostly consists of the Blue Series and the Green Series, such as the Blue Dresser and the Green Bed. She has some clothing in her home, including a Blue Umbrella and a No. 3 Shirt. The wallpaper is the Green Wall and the flooring is the Ceramic Tile. K.K. Ballad plays on her White Boombox.

In Welcome amiibo, Ellie's house features furniture items from her Amiibo, such as two Iron Garden Chairs and an Iron Garden Table. She also owns a recolored Serving Cart, a Silver Teapot, an Espresso Machine, a Counter Table, a Bread Basket, and a Cream Soda. She does not initially own a stereo, but if the player gives her one, it will play Café K.K. Her wallpaper and flooring are the Café-Curtain Wall and the Terra-Cotta Floor.

Welcome amiibo Mobile Home

Ellie's RV is identical to her New Leaf home, and she shares her exterior design with Carrie's, Maddie's, Stella's, and Sandy's RVs. Her profile states:

With an espresso machine and all kinds of tasty treats, Ellie's van could give the Roost a real run for its money! Someone alert Brewster.

Pocket Camp

Ellie’s preferred theme is natural. Her profile says:

Ellie has what you might call the ultimate sweet tooth... or, if we're being accurate, a sweet trunk. That's how she eats her sweets, even though they always get stuck up there.

Profile Elephants aren't known for craving candy, but Ellie has a sweet tooth like you wouldn't believe. She once bought all the candy from Nook's store and ate it before Halloween... then went trick-or-treating!
