— The Merchant

The Umbrella is a held item, and on Desktop version Desktop, Console version Console, and Mobile version Mobile, a melee weapon as well. It can be found in surface Chests and (Old-gen console and 3DS versions) in Wooden Crates. (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) It can also be purchased for 1 GC from the Skeleton Merchant during a Waning Gibbous.

When held, the Umbrella appears above the character and allows the player to fall at a slower rate. It replicates the effect of the Featherfall Potion and prevents fall damage.

(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) Its best modifier is Legendary.


  • (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) When attacking with the Umbrella midair, the player's fall will no longer be slowed for the duration of the attack.
  • It is not necessary to hold out the Umbrella for the entirety of the fall. It can be pulled out in the last seconds before touching the ground and still instantly prevents fall damage.
  • Since it provides the same effect as the Featherfall Potion, the player can hold the ▼ Down key to go down at a faster speed. Also, the Umbrella's effect does not stack with the Featherfall Potion.


  • The Umbrella is very useful when paired with an accessory that provides extra jump (e.g. Cloud in a Bottle) and other accessories that increase jump height.
  • Keeping the Umbrella in the hotbar for quick access can be life-saving for unexpectedly long falls.
  • The Umbrella is highly effective when falling with a high horizontal speed, e.g. with the maximum speed of a Minecart. Riding off the edge of a suspended Minecart Track while holding an Umbrella facilitates traveling very long horizontal distances. If the rail is high enough, distances reaching even halfway across the map can be traveled.
  • With the Shield of Cthulhu(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions), enemies can be attacked while floating down.
  • If one want to further speed up the fall, they can switch to another item, and then switching back to the Umbrella before touching the ground. (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) Attacking in midair is another option to achieve this.
  • (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) The Umbrella may prove quite helpful in combat during the early game due to its large hitbox. However, its weak knockback should be kept in mind.


  • Use of an Umbrella in place of a parachute to slow a fall from a great height is a common comedic trope.
  • Despite being an umbrella, it has no effect against the Angry Nimbus.
