The Tenta Brella is a main weapon in Splatoon 2.

The Tenta Brella functions similarly to the standard S2 Weapon Main Splat Brella.png Splat Brella, but the shield is much larger. This means it can block more shots and leave a wider ink trail when launched.

The Tenta Brella was announced during a Nintendo Direct on September 13, 2017. It was released on September 30, 2017 at 02:00 UTC[1].

The Tenta Brella comes in a set with S2 Weapon Sub Squid Beakon.png Squid Beakons and S2 Weapon Special Bubble Blower.png Bubble Blower.[2].


  • The Tenta Brella's shield has 800 HP.[3]
    • After being launched, it takes half the normal damage from enemy attacks.
    • It does 30 damage to opponents on contact.[4]
  • The shield takes 1.75 seconds to be launched, and 6.0 seconds to return.[3]
  • Each shot consumes 10% of the ink tank's capacity, allowing players to fire 10 shots before needing to refill.
  • Holding Button1 ZR.png long enough after firing to deploy the shield uses 30% of the ink tank.[4]
    • So, 40% 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 S2 Ability Object Shredder.png Object Shredder. No additional damage will be dealt.[5]
  • S2 Weapon Special Ink Storm.png Ink Storm and S2 Weapon Special Sting Ray.png Sting Ray ignore the shield, dealing damage directly to the player.
  • A released shield breaks S2 Weapon Special Ink Armor.png Ink Armor on impact.
  • A released shield will break if it touches a S2 Weapon Sub Splash Wall.png Splash Wall, another brella shield, or the Rainmaker shield.
