Marlon has declared in interviews to Brazilian magazines[9][10][11] that he is of Native Brazilian descent together with Japanese, Portuguese and Swiss.[note 1]


  1. ^ Some English sources have stated that Marlon is of Portuguese, Japanese and Indian descent. The ambiguous meaning of the word "Indian" in English has led some of his fans to believe that one or more of his ancestors originated from India. In Portuguese such ambiguity is nonexistent, since there are two words to convey the different meanings: índio for an American Indian (or Amerindian, including Native Brazilians); and indiano for people and things related to India.
