Tangata Manu's artwork from Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers

Tangata Manu (タンガタ・マヌ) is a recurring demon in the series.



The name of the Birdman cult that existed on Easter Island, the chief god of the Tanagata Manu is Make-make. The Tanagata Manu was discouraged by missionaries in the 1860s, however the Tanagata Manu's popularity and memory was not erased and it is still present in decoration of the island's church.


Shin Megami Tensei: Strange JourneyEdit

"A bird-man revered on Easter Island. The leader of the tribe was also given the title of the same name. A competition is held to decide the tribe's leader, where one must swim to a nearby island and fetch a bird egg. The first to return is given the title of Tangata Manu ("bird man") and great authority."
