Brella

From Inkipedia, the Splatoon wiki
(Redirected from Brellas)
A promotional image for Splatoon 3 featuring an Octoling wielding the Splat Brella, a weapon in the Brella class.

Brellas are one of the main weapon classes in the Splatoon series.

As a shotgun-like weapon class, brellas fire a narrow cone-shaped spray of ink 'pellets' each time the weapon is fired. As their name suggests, they also feature unfolding canopies that can serve as shields to protect the user and their allies.

Brellas were first introduced in Splatoon 2.

General mechanics

If the player holds down , the brella will unfold, providing a protective shield that is capable of absorbing enemy attacks while taking damage in the process. The shield can be broken if enough damage is taken, and there are a variety of potential damage multipliers to make this act easier for certain weapons (see "Shield mechanics" below).

With most Brellas, if the player holds down the trigger even longer, the brella will detach from the main weapon and propel itself in the direction it is aimed, inking the ground as it travels. It will still protect anyone behind it from enemy fire until it vanishes.

Detached or broken shields will regenerate and become deployable once again after a delay.

List of brellas

Note: The series are arranged by their respective order in the weapon select screen with the Main filter.

Animations

Splatoon 2

Spawning in before a match starts:

  • Both Inklings and Octolings hold their weapon forward before positioning it beside them like normal after shaking off excess ink.

Victory:

  • Inklings: Holds their brella like a cane before twirling it in a circle, then pose with the brella open while periodically spinning it.
  • Octoling Girl: Floats down with the shield open until landing on the ground to close it and proceeds to play the weapon like a guitar before posing.
  • Octoling Boy: Similar to Octoling Girl, but slightly leaning down with both eyes open during the guitar pose.

Defeat:

  • Inkling Girl: Holds the weapon with two hands while brella is open, twitches a couple times before looking down at the ground and shaking her head.
  • Inkling Boy: Similar to Inkling Girl, except his legs are bent outwards.
  • Octoling Girl: Slides hand down brella and collapses, dropping the weapon and rubbing her head.
  • Octoling Boy: Similar to the Octoling Girl, but shakes his head instead.

In Ammo Knights (Clicking ):

  • Inklings: Inspects brella for a second, taps their hand with it a few times, and the opens it looks inside before closing it.
  • Octolings: Opens the brella and looks inside before closing it.

Splatoon 3

Spawner pose:

  • All styles: Smiles while holding the brella with their hands on their hips.

Victory:

  • Flip Out: Picks up the weapon's base while folded, swings it with force in the style of a golf club, then throws it into the air and rests their hands on it when it lands.
  • Reppin' Inkopolis: Spins the weapon around, throws it into the air, then catching it and playing it like a guitar. (Added in Version 7.0.0. Versions prior used the same animation for Flip Out.)

In Ammo Knights (Clicking ):

  • Inklings: The player will look the brella over before putting the end of it on the ground, tilting it to the right and then left before picking it up and holding it above their head with the brella closed the whole time.
  • Octolings: The player will hold the brella in their right hand before grabbing with both hands and swinging like a baseball bat, briefly glancing up before moving it back to their right hand and nodding.

Quotes

Squid Research Lab Ballistics here with a weapon type that looks far more innocent than it is. Meet the brella! Open one up to defend against enemy barrages, then launch it right into their surprised faces. Brellas can also fire ink, of course. When it rains...

Shield mechanics

  • Brella shields have different incoming damage multipliers for each weapon type.[2]
    • After being launched, the shield takes half the normal damage from enemy attacks.
  • The shield absorbs Rainmaker shots, taking damage from them but not allowing them to explode. This is not the case for bombs, which will explode on impact, dealing damage to anything in front of the shield.
  • The shield is unaffected by Object Shredder. No additional damage will be dealt.[3]
  • The Sting Ray and Ink Storm ignore the shield, dealing damage directly to the player.
  • A released shield can break Ink Armor and Sprinklers on impact.
  • A released shield will break if it touches a Splash Wall, another brella shield, the Rainmaker shield, or the Spawn point barrier.
