Cannibals are grotesque cybernetic constructs created by the Reapers and are a common enemy in Mass Effect 3. They are created from the mutated remains of Batarians and Humans and are used as the Reapers' most frequent ground troops. The Cannibal is relatively weak to begin with, but it is capable of forming armour plates when it is buffed by nearby Marauders or when it feeds on the corpses of other Cannibals (this behaviour is what earned the creature it's name). A Cannibal's right arm - actually a deformed human corpse - ends with a gun placement that fires rapid pulse blasts.
