Town Majini attacking Chris Redfield

Majini are the main enemies of 2009 Video Game Resident Evil 5.

They were infected by both Plaga Types 2 and 3. In 2009, many residents of the African region in Kijuju were infected by the Plaga and transformed into Majini. Albert Wesker had control over the Majini even known he wasn't one, and so Ricardo Irving and Excella Gionne had control too. They appear to be more stronger and intelligent than Ganado, but were extremly similiar to them. 

Types of Majini


Instigator Majini

Town Majini

Town Majini were civilians who become infected, and wear African clothing. They appear to wield similiar weaponry to Ganado Villagers, but were better armed as they wielded Machete, Crossbows and Molotov Cocktails. They also were tasked with keeping Chris and Sheva and anyone else from apprehending Ricardo Irving, but failed and Irving was killed when infected himself, but still was questioned. Chainsaw Majini and Executioner Majini appeared to be Town Majini, and were powerful enemies throughout the game. They were the main enemies of Mercenaries maps: Public Assembly, The Mines, Missile Area, Ship Deck and Prison.

Wetlands Majini were traditional ones who lived in the marshlands and wore tribal skirts. They were led by the Giant Majini, massive tribal Majini who wore protective masks. Some are scarred and mutaliated from Las Plagas, having missing lips and exposed sinew. They were more powerful than the Town Majini and were implanted with Las Plagas type 3, being extremly strong and fast. Unlike the Town Majini who had to climb ladders, they were capable f jumping to great heights and didn't use ladders.
