The Pri Ma Djinn[1] is a character that appears in Sonic and the Secret Rings. It is a type of humanoid djinn breed which only appears in Party Mode.


The Pri Ma Djinns are little over a meter tall and similar to humans in anatomy, except they have thick forearms, mitten-like hands, a short neck, a cartoonish face, and flappy ears. They also have a gem embedded in their chest and drawings across their bodies in different shapes: those on their forearms resemble flames and those on their chest resemble a shirt. As attire, they wear baggy pants, shoes with curved toes, wrist bands, and a waist sash. They also appear to wear a close-skin cap and keep their hair in a small knot.

The Pri Ma Djinns come in two color variants: one has light blue skin with dark blue markings, a yellow gem, dark blue hair and pants, and regular blue and light blue shoes, while the other has beige skin with brown markings, a rose gem, brown hair, purple pants, and orange and purple shoes.


The Pri Ma Djinns are only encountered during some of the mini-games in the Party Mode, where they serve as both guides and gameplay elements. The mini-games they appear and the roles they have include:

  • Genie's Lair: Pri Ma Djinns will pop out of bobby-trapped chest and induce different drawbacks to the player.
