Mariachi is a minor character in Grand Theft Auto V.


The mariachi's real name is Manny. He is a Mexican man who appears in the Alta neighborhood, near the corner of Elgin and Hawick Avenues, by a gazebo in a courtyard filled with food shacks and bordered by two Mexican restaurants. When approached, he speaks to the player and surrounding passers-by entirely in Spanish, though all of his words are translated into English via subtitles. He talks primarily about his frustration with being ignored by those around him and the threats he receives in Los Santos for being Mexican. Manny can be killed by the player, and he won't be seen again if the player returns to Manny's original location.


  • Though Manny is dressed as a mariachi, he identifies himself as an actor. There are mariachis in the game, which are featured in the mission The Civil Border Patrol.
  • He will react differently to each of the main protagonists. He will be rude to Michael and Franklin and be scared of Trevor.
