"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 which means she will act kind and nice towards the player. Like all normal villagers, she will get along well with other villagers, particularly other normal, cranky, lazy, and peppy villagers. She may, however, conflict with snooty and uchi villagers. She will also engage in hobbies like other villagers such as fishing and bug catching. She has an unseen friend called Moppina which peppy villagers are friends with as well. Normal villagers usually wake up at 6:00 AM. Obtaining pictures from normal villagers is easier than obtaining pictures from other villagers.
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..
