* In ''VideoGame/{{Siren}}'', the character Risa Onda can get an umbrella as her weapon. It's pretty ineffective. A character in the sequel, Akiko Kiyota, can get one as well, but as there are better weapons she can wield it isn't really worth picking up unless your caught without one.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Siren}}'', the character Risa Onda can get an umbrella as her weapon. It's pretty ineffective. A character in It deals the sequel, Akiko Kiyota, lowest amount of damage compared to other melee weapons, but is surprisingly efficient enough to take out the Spider Shibito one-by-one with practice, and can get one even be used to take out [[spoiler: an incredibly dangerous Mina Onda]] if the right steps are taken. An umbrella can also be used as well, a weapon in Siren 2, but as there are better weapons she can wield is notably weaker in power to the point where it isn't really worth picking up unless your caught without one.barely cause the standard Shibito to flinch from the attack.

* AmeliaPeabody Emerson, from the series of books by Elizabeth Peters, has made an art out of using her parasol in battle, to the point that some superstitious 19th-century Egyptians believe it to be a magical weapon. By the time she's in her 50s, Amelia actually has custom parasols made with extra-strong shafts so they aren't destroyed by the damage she deals with them, and at least one is built along the lines of a sword cane--this latter is a special present from her husband, which delights her even though she doesn't actually know how to fence. Not that that stops her. Very little stops Amelia.

* ''VideoGame/TalesOfZestiria'' has Edna as the first in the Tales series to use one and she uses it for firing magic attacks. And poking "Meebo" for her [[TheGadfly amusement]]. Her case is justified too; though she's a powerful Earth Seraph, she's too small to really pull off massive feats of strength like other Earth Seraph without extreme pain afterwards so has to deal with a lighter weapon. And, in regards to ElementalRockPaperScissors, water is weak to Earth and an umbrella represents that in such a way it makes channelling her magic easier.
