Ponchos are worn by Poncho Zombies that offer them a slight increase of protection from any threats, as well as surprising the player by revealing a metal grate or nothing to protect it by any means.
The poncho takes 60 damage per shot. When destroyed, it may reveal a protective metal grate but it may also reveal nothing.
- It is the weakest armor in the game.
- Before the 2.4 update, Poncho Zombie could be instantly killed by Magnifying Grass as long as he had this on, regardless of whether or not he had the grate under this.
- According to the Poncho Zombie's Almanac entry, the poncho is there just to keep the grate from rusting.
