Marina (タコリーナ Takorīna?) is a normal octopus villager whose debut appearance was in Dōbutsu no Mori e+ as an islander. She later reappeared in Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk, where she was 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 initial catchphrase is a reference to how video games and cartoons interpret the sound an octopus makes when spitting up 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 Dōbutsu no Mori e+, Marina wears the Red Aloha Shirt, and in Animal Crossing: Wild World, Animal Crossing: City Folk, and Animal Crossing: New Leaf, the Bubblegum shirt.
As a normal villager, Marina will appear friendly and hospitable towards the player and other villagers. Like other normal villagers, she will have an unseen obsession with hygiene and cleanliness, which she mentions when the player visits her in her home. Other than her hygiene interests, she will appear neutral and open-minded when discussing hobbies, such as gardening, bug catching, fishing and so on. Like other villagers, she will, from time to time, ask the player for favors feeling sorry for having to ask for help, but appearing very gracious once the task has been complete. She will get along easily with other villagers, but may conflict with snooty or cranky villagers when they say something weird or hurtful to her. She is easy to befriend.
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..
