Ellie is a central character in the critically acclaimed video game The Last of Us, developed by Naughty Dog. Introduced as a brave and resourceful teenager, Ellie's story is set in a post-apocalyptic world ravaged by a fungal pandemic. Orphaned early in the outbreak, she represents hope in a bleak world, as she is immune to the infection that has decimated humanity.

Throughout the game, Ellie's character is developed through her relationship with Joel, another main character tasked with smuggling her out of a quarantine zone. This journey across the United States is fraught with danger, moral dilemmas, and emotional struggles, all of which contribute to Ellie's growth from a naive young girl to a resilient survivor. Her personality is a blend of youthful innocence and a toughness forged by the harsh realities of the world she inhabits.

Ellie's character has been praised for its depth and realism, contributing significantly to the emotional impact of The Last of Us. Her portrayal by actress Ashley Johnson received widespread acclaim, bringing authenticity and depth to the character. Ellie's role extends into the game's sequel, The Last of Us Part II, where her story takes a darker turn, exploring themes of revenge, consequence, and the cycle of violence in a world struggling to find order amidst chaos.
