The weapon's shots resemble that of a shotgun; it has wide spread and short range, but not as wide and short-ranged as a roller. The player can press and hold to open the umbrella, which will shield the player from any attacks in the direction they are facing. If the player continues to hold for about two seconds, the umbrella will separate from the weapon and fly forward, becoming a fast-moving shield that the player can use to penetrate enemy defenses. Once separated, the player will not be able to use the umbrella's opening function for a while.
- The Splat Brella's shield has 500 HP.
- The shield takes 2.0 seconds to be launched, and 6.5 seconds to return.
- Each shot consumes 5.5% of the ink tank's capacity, allowing the player to fire 18 shots before needing to refill.
- Holding long enough after firing to deploy the shield uses 30% of the ink tank.
- So, 35.5% of the ink tank is used in total to release the shield.
- The shield absorbs Rainmaker shots, taking damage from them but not allowing them to explode. This is not the case for bombs, as it 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.
- Ink Storm and Sting Ray ignore the shield, dealing damage directly to the player.
- A released shield breaks Ink Armor on impact.
- A released shield will break if it touches a Splash Wall, another brella shield, or the Rainmaker shield.

- The Splat Brella is the only weapon with the "Splat" prefix not made by the "Splat" brand. This is probably due to a mistranslation, since the Japanese suffix for it is different than the prefix for the Splat-branded weapons.
- This weapon was playable in Octo Canyon before it was playable online. Even completing all stages with it would not unlock the Hero Brella until it was released online.
- It has been suggested that this is Marina's preferred weapon.[by who?]
