Yo-kai Watch animation series
Brokenbrella appears in Yo-kai Brokenbrella as it causes the umbrellas of Nate, Bear and Eddie to turn inside out during a heavy rainstorm. After it is identified, Brokenbrella recounts its origin of a store-bought umbrella that was overlooked in favor of its other umbrella friends. When it was eventually picked out, it tried to protect its owner from the rain but was quickly turned inside out, causing its owner to discard it out of frustration. The shock of being rejected turned the umbrella into a vengeful Yokai, bent on ruining the umbrellas of other people.
Nate first summons Jibanyan to deal with Brokenbrella, but refuses to do so on account of the rain. Nate then summons Pallysol, who proves its superiority in resisting the wind and offers to train Brokenbrella's resistance. By the end of the training Brokenbrella is able to fold itself back properly, earning Pallysol its gratitude and Nate its Yokai Medal, but a huge gust of wind ends up wrecking both umbrella Yokai.
Brokenbrella initially doesn't think much of Pallysol since Pallysol is based on a traditional Japanese umbrella, but gains respect for him after he trains Brokenbrella to withstand stormy winds better.

Like with Manjimutt, his voice is reminiscence to Mr. Bump from "The Mr. Men Show".
Brokenbrella might draw inspiration from the hone karakasa (骨傘, "skeletal umbrella"), a tsukumogami born from a dilapidated paper umbrella, its exposed wooden tines resembling fish bones. It flaps its shredded canopy like ghastly wings as it flies over cities, and its arrival is an omen of bad weather.
