In this work we analyze the multi-elliptic rogue wave clusters as new solutions of the nonlinear Schr"odinger equation (NLSE). Such structures are obtained on uniform backgrounds by using the Darboux transformation scheme of order $n$ with the first $m$ evolution shifts that are equal, nonzero, and eigenvalue-dependent, while the imaginary parts of all eigenvalues tend to one. We show that an Akhmediev breather of $n-2m$ order appears at the origin of the $(x,t)$ plane and can be considered as the central rogue wave of the cluster. We show that the high-intensity narrow peak, with characteristic intensity distribution in its vicinity, is enclosed by $m$ ellipses consisting of the first-order Akhmediev breathers. The number of maxima on each ellipse is determined by its index and the solution order. Since rogue waves in nature usually appear on a periodic background, we utilize the modified Darboux transformation scheme to build these solutions on a Jacobi elliptic dnoidal background. We analyze the minor semi-axis of all ellipses in a cluster as a function of an absolute evolution shift. We show that the cluster radial symmetry in the $(x,t)$ plane is violated when the shift values are increased above a threshold. We apply the same analysis on Hirota equation, to examine the influence of a free real parameter and Hirota operator on the cluster appearance. The same analysis can be extended to the infinite hierarchy of extended NLSEs.
