    Nice simple suggestion. When you're holding an umbrella and an Angry Nimbus flies over your head, the rain won't damage you. This could be useful while traveling during a rainstorm or just to get rid of the nuisance, albeit being unable to damage it.

    Thanks for reading my suggestion! Let me know what you think in the comments!

    Yet another quality of life suggestion. A real life one, in fact. Umbrellas will come back out of the shadows and into the shadows (of the clouds)!
    I want this in game

    Terraria is one of those games that have just slight details built into it that really elevate the game to godlike levels. This... this would be one of those things and should be one of those things. I love it.

    Would be kind of op with summons, but there is already so much you can do, so I support

    I don't really think it'd be OP. You could achieve the same thing by placing a few blocks over your head, and umbrellas are weak in that you have to hold them actively in lieu of a weapon.

    That said, I really like the suggestion. Cute and accurate.

    I'd also like to say that the Umbrella Hat could serve the same purpose, or serve a similar function in such a way to be consistent. Full support from me either way.

    Witness my Umbrella as it blocks the Martian Saucer's Death Ray! Muhahahahahaha! I am invincible!

    Now I just need to work on defences for my footsies.

    I feel like you should take this further: Umbrella can block any projectile from above the player. No effect on contact damage or damages from projectiles from the sides or bottom. Extending what @sharkman0101 said, Umbrella Hat has the same effect, but covers a smaller angle from above.

    And make umbrella slimes unable to be damaged by Nimbus Rod clouds. This is a very cute quality suggestion :)
