Mario and Luigi: Rise of the Dark Side Ella makes an appearance in Mario and Luigi: Rise of the Dark Side. She was kicked out of Bowser's castle trying to save Princess Peach into a hidden underground tunnel. Mario and Luigi found her there and Luigi started to fall in love with her. He even expressed his love by motioning Ella to come give him a hug. Ella, though, declines and tells Mario and Luigi that she'll have to find a way out of the underground tunnel.
Ella makes another appearance when she finally gets out of the underground tunnel, and into Toadswood Forest. There she holds an item stand, along with her sister, Iris, who holds a clothing stand.
After the credits of the game, Luigi heads back to Toadswood Forest hoping to find Ella at her item stand, but has no luck. He finds Ella behind him though, when she hugs him from behind. Luigi lets go of Ella, turns himself around, and hugs Ella on his front. The picture holds, then it fades back to the main screen.

Maya- She is the niece of Ella, and her closest friend. They are seen together in various situations, like when Ella needs help, Maya steps in and helps her by teaming up with her ski classmates to save her. Maya looks up to Ella as a role model, although Iris is her mom. The two are portrayed as best friends.
Iris-She is Ella's older sister. Together since childhood, she has been comforting to her younger sister, and helping out with advice. She is also fashionable but with a kind heart. Technically, she's like a bunny that's a fashion notista. But, no, she does not have a crush on Mario.
Nick- Ella does not interact with Iris's husband much. She does mention him in Rise of the Dark Side though.
Luigi- He is Ella's close friend and crush. Luigi has a crush on her, but she doesn't know that due to the fact that she thought he was just being nice. In Rise of the Dark Side, Luigi wants Ella to give him an affectionate hug, and at the end of the game he finally gets it. She starts to like Luigi in Cinder-Ella, due that he might be her Prince Charming, even though it’s Mario and Luigi saving her. Luigi and Ella both share numerous affections for each other.
Mario- He is a friend of Ella. Though she is not as close to Mario than Luigi, she would still be very friendly to Mario. The two share various portions together like when Mario finds Ella underground, she thanks him, but does not plant a kiss on his cheek like Peach does. The two are close friends.
Peach- She is also a good friend of Ella. When Ella tries to save Peach from Bowser, she gets kicked out of Bowser’s castle and into an underground tunnel. That’s how close she is to Peach, much enough to save her.
Yoshi- She does not interact with Yoshi much.
Toad- She does not interact with Toad much.
Daisy- As much as Ella tries to be nice to everyone, Daisy just pushes her buttons. She remembers when Luigi used to ride with her until Daisy’s boisterous attitude scared him, and that made Ella angry. She also rivals Daisy for the affections of Luigi.
Wario- She doesn’t like Wario, but she doesn’t hate him as much as Daisy. She often gets annoyed by his attitude.
Waluigi- She has mixed feelings for Waluigi, though she does not have a crush on him. She hates him because he bullies Luigi around, and she likes him because he has a crush on Daisy.
Bowser- She hates him almost more than Daisy. In Rise of the Dark Side, Ella defends Peach from Bowser but he kicks her out. Clearly, Bowser hates her too.
The Kooplings- She thinks the Kooplings are annoying, especially Wendy. She doesn’t like it when Maya is super annoyed with Wendy. Maya is younger that Wendy yet, she acts more mature than her. And she doesn’t like Wendy out of all the Kooplings because of her constant flirting with Luigi.
