Tales owns an Umbrella Rifle as a secondary weapon. It is a good all-rounded weapon, but she only uses it when she absolutely needs to. The Umbrella Rifle is an umbrella-rifle hybrid Tales created when she spent some time with the Scarf Heroes. The rifle is built into the shaft so she can shoot bullets easily. It also possesses an extremely sharp ferrule so she can stab people (even behind the cover of the canopy if she wishes). The umbrella has also been built and tested, so that if needed, Tales can use it as a parachute, Because of this, jokes have been made about her being Mary Poppins.
From the start, it was planned that Tales would have a long-range weapon (most likely a gun) to go with her close-range pencils. It was planned that she would find a .500 S&W Magnum and call it "Stainless" but that idea was scrapped. The idea of the Umbrella Rifle came to Tales on a rainy day at school when she was pretending to use her umbrella as a gun. She thought the umbrella could be used similarly to a Flintlock Musket with a gun built into the shaft and the ferrule as the bayonet. She also liked the idea of being able to float down from a cliff or building similar to Mary Poppins, however this feature probably shouldn't be used very often (not only possible copyright problems but also mostly due to the strangeness, though it could probably happen if the umbrella was unable to turn inside out and had a fairly large canopy).
Tales made this from a dark blue, plaid-patterned umbrella and rifle. The rifle is built into the shaft so she can shoot bullets easily. It also possesses an extremely sharp ferrule so she can stab people (even behind the cover of the canopy if she wishes). The umbrella has also been built and tested, so that if needed, Tales can use it as a parachute.
Traits & Abilities
The Umbrella Rifle is a lot easier to use than Tales' pencils, however it can still be rather awkward.
It can be (and is usually) used like a Flintlock Musket.
It can be a shield, like a normal umbrella.
In close combat, Tales can and will take advantage of its canopy, springs, durability, long reach, and hooked handle. (Comparable to how Neo from RWBY uses her umbrella)
It can be used as a parachute, to glide down safely from high places.
It can also - like Tales' pencils - be shoved where the sun don't shine.
It was originally going to be a gun called "Stainless", referring to the gun being made out of stainless steel.
It can be used as a parachute, similar to how Mary Poppins flies around using an umbrella.
