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 is a milk-chocolate brown elephant with pink cheeks, trunk, and ears. She has black pie-eyes with eyelashes or eyeliner flicks. She also has nervous-looking eyebrows, giving her a shy appearance. She initially wears a red grid shirt. Ellie's red mouth is on one side of her face. Her stomach is white. She has light pink blush on her cheeks, which is also inside her ears and a part of her trunk.
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 with cranky, lazy, peppy and other normal villagers, but may conflict with snooty and uchi 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.
