This article is about Elli, a character from Harvest Moon 64. You may be looking for Elli in her other appearances throughout the series.

Elli is one of the five eligible marriage candidates in Harvest Moon 64.

Elli is a warm and generous young woman who runs the local bakery with Jeff, the Bakery Master, in addition to taking care of her ailing grandmother, Ellen. Elli is friendly and kind, and good friends with fellow bachelorettes Popuri, Ann, and Maria. As Elli's affection for the player increases, she will begin to confide her concerns regarding her body image, envying Popuri for being so slim and beautiful. If the player chooses not to marry her, Jeff will fall in love with her and the two will eventually marry. Jeff will express his feeling that dieting is unhealthy, and that he prefers "plump girls".

Elli is a wonderful cook, and she particularly enjoys gifts of eggs, milk, and fish. At some point, Elli will tell the player that her grandfather was a famous fisherman. As such, she loves to fish herself, and can occasionally be found doing so at the mountain either alone, or with Jeff. Elli's affection will also increase if the player purchases baked goods from the bakery.

At some point during the game, if the player talks to Ellen when she appears to be sleeping on a festival day, she'll pass away. If she dies, it causes considerable grief to Elli and reduces her interest in her love life.
