The Marianna Maravilla are the second largest (after El Hoyo MV) subset of the Maravilla Gang. Their cliques are the Winitos, Cherries, Santitos, Diablos, and the Pistoleros. Females who are affiliated with this barrio, are known as the Marianna Maravilla “Monas” or Marvelous Monas. The Moeriya Maravilla, is a subset of the Marianna Maravilla with their own cliques such as the Tiny Dukes, Jokers, and the Sinners.

In 2000, members of the Marianna Maravilla were featured in East Side Stories: Gang Life In East Los Angeles, a photographic book by Joseph Rodriguez (Author), Ruben Martinez (Author), and Luis J. Rodriguez (Author). The book document gang life in neighborhoods associated with gangs such as the Evergreen GangClarence Street, and the Florencia 13.
