"I think I'm the only sane one in this town."
— Picture quote, Wild World
Marina (タコリーナ,Takorīna?) is a normaloctopusvillager whose debut appearance was in Animal Forest e+ as an islander. She later reappeared in Wild World, City Folk and New Leaf where she is a villager. She probably was named after marinas, which are sheltered harbors where boats and yachts are kept in the water, or she may have been named after the Latin origin, the meaning of "Marina" is "from the sea." It may have also been from the word marine, a general term for things relating to the sea or ocean. Her Japanese name, Takorina, has "tako" in it which means octopus in Japanese. Her initial catchphrase is a reference to how video games and cartoons interpret the sound an octopus makes when spitting out ink.
Marina is a strawberry 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. In Animal Forest e+, Marina wears the Red Aloha Shirt, and in Wild World, City Folk, and New Leaf, the Bubblegum shirt.
Below is a brief description of the normal personality. For more information, click here.
Marina has a normal personality, and frequently acts kind towards the player. Normal villagers generally get along with lazy, peppy, smug, snooty and other normal villagers. She may conflict with cranky and uchi villagers. As a normal villager, Marina 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.
Marina's house consists of many furniture items from the Lovely Series, such as a lovely bed and the lovely lamp, along with the matching lovely wall and lovely floor. Other items include a claw-foot tub; in New Leaf, she also has a toilet, a sunflower, and a lovely wall clock. Her turntable plays Soulful K.K..
