Shaman King Wiki

Peyote's Mariachi Band (7人のマリアッチ,7-Nin no Mariacchi; literally Seven Men of Mariachi, The Mescaline Mariachi Band in the English version of the 2001 Anime series) are the guardian ghosts of Peyote Diaz.


The spirits alongside with Peyote were once a part of a Mariachi band.

  • Carlos (カルロス,Karurosu) and Juan (ジョアン,Joan): Juan and Carlos are both guitar players and were once owners of a saloon, but were gunned down by an unhappy customer. Also, Carlos and Juan look quite alike and are the only two spirits to have been shown.
  • Antonio (アントニオ,Antonio), Jose (ホセ,Hose), Pancho (パンチョ,Pancho), Miguel (ミゲル,Migeru), and Zapata (サパタ,Sapata): Not much is known about the rest except that Antonio was their lead singer, and they all died in bar brawls they started themselves.

They were famed for their Mariachi band, and also had bar brawls they started by themselves. They called themselves men, and their fighting was also what got themselves killed in the end.

Thanks to the power granted by the Chō-Senjiryakketsu, they were able to assume the powers of nature spirits, even though they didn't die long ago.[1]

Oversouls and Attacks[]

O.S. Mariachi Band[]

O.S. Mariachi Band

O.S. "Mariachi Band" (O.S. マリアッチ・バンド)

Description: This is Peyote's most basic Over Soul. When he and the Boz Brothers fought against Team "Ren" and the Boz Brothers were defeated by Chocolove, he ordered them to continue and used their bodies as a medium for his Over Soul and two of his guardian spirits Carlos and Juan. By changing his Over Soul, Peyote can make the BoZ Brothers wear cactus clubs on their arms.

Peyote's O.S. using the Boz brothers as the medium.

Later on, he revealed five Calavera dolls, like those used in Mexico during El Día de Muertos (Spanish for Day of the Dead), that worked as protection for him. He apparently controls these spirits by making them vibrate to his music.


  • Flying Spines (フライングスパインズ,"Furaingusupainzu"): An attack where Peyote launches the spines on the cactus weapons created with his Over Soul to use as flying projectiles.

O.S. Grande Fantasma[]

O.S. Grande Fantasma

O.S. "Grande Fantasma" (O.S. グランデファンタスマ)[2]

  • Shaman: Peyote Diaz
  • O.S. Type: Spirit Type
  • Spirit Ally: Carlos; Juan; Antonio; Jose; Pancho; Miguel; Zapata
  • Medium: Falles doll

Description: This is Peyote's second and strongest Over Soul. This is Peyote's deadly trump card and its medium is that of Falles doll, one of the huge made-to-be-burnt wooden dolls you can find in the fire festival of Valencia.

The doll was discovered when Peyote and Hao were in Spain. They were watching the festival together when the Falla accidentally fell down, smashing and killing numerous people. Peyote liked its design, so he took advantage of the situation and created an Over Soul with the doll, using its victims, so he could steal it.

By integrating his various guardian ghosts into the doll it manifests itself as the giant skeleton Falla doll, wielding a relatively small knife. This Over Soul has great strength and stealth, despite its large size. However, the main disadvantage of this Over Soul is that because its huge size and the numerous guardian ghosts required, it consumes a great proportion of his Furyoku and the medium is also difficult to transport.[3]
