The Wind Waker Darknuts vs. Twilight princess's Darknuts

Yea some of you might know that I had a thread like this before and I did only (with the result of the hacking) the thread I made (and about 5 -10 other posts where deleted.
So here goes again...I usually have this debate inside my head but I would like to know witch Darknut do think is better The Wind Waker’s or Twilight Princess's?
I really like the ones from Twilight princes they were much tougher and responded the way an actual person would respond in combat. I really liked it once you got all his armor off and then you have a full on sword battle with him and he reacts so well like he blocks attacks and you need to wait till the right moment to strike. Usually I always ended up cussing out the TV whenever they got the upper hand but I have to admit there's nothing better than a worthy opponent.
Which do you think is better?

Re: The Wind Waker Darknuts vs. Twilight princess's Darknuts

The TP Darknuts impressed me more. They were intimidating (at least, more intimidating than their WW counterparts), were fast on their feet, had that awesome sword toss, and were great in groups.

The WW Darknuts aren't scary, and they don't pose any real threat. I remember taking on three of them in Hyrule Castle and mopping the floor with them, without using the parry command.

Let me put it this way: when I beat a TP Darknut, I thought 'Wow, Link really rocks'. When I beat a group of WW Darknuts, I thought 'Wow, Darknuts really suck'.

Re: The Wind Waker Darknuts vs. Twilight princess's Darknuts

TP's darknuts were definitely better, they looked very realistic. Even after fighting loads, they still caught me out when they throw their weps at you to go into speed form.

Re: The Wind Waker Darknuts vs. Twilight princess's Darknuts

Like just about everyone else it seems, I prefer TP's Darknuts over TWW's. They were more of a challenge, something you had to focus on to beat. TWW's were only hard if they were with others. Seriously, all you had to do to beat them was parry their attacks, it doesn't get any easier than that.
But TP's were a bit of a challenge. Avoiding their attacks could get hard, and landing a hit on them even harder. The easiest way, in my opinion, was to use the backslice over and over again, until it was down.

That is what I think too. The TP's Darknuts were pretty hard to beat if you didn't know how to defeat them. TWW's ones were really easy. The only hard part about them was if the darknut's were in a group and even then they were kinda easy.

Re: The Wind Waker Darknuts vs. Twilight princess's Darknuts

WW's darknuts are ****ing stupid they hit each other.
TP's darknuts were harder and smarter.

Getting the triforce maps in WW we had to fight like 7-10 darknuts in the round pillar rooms. If you had 10 TP darnuts on you, you will die son.

Re: The Wind Waker Darknuts vs. Twilight princess's Darknuts

Yep, even though I liked WW overall more than TP, the darknuts were MUCH better in TP. At least they tried to fight you and did some damage, rather than just hitting each other and being complete jokes.

Re: The Wind Waker Darknuts vs. Twilight princess's Darknuts

Wind Waker Darknuts (although cooler) were much easier to defeat than TP Darknuts. You could just do one parrry to take off their help, hit them with the boomerang in the face, and then slash off their armor.

TP Darknuts were much harder and allot more fun. I still don't really have a surefire strategy to beat them...

Re: The Wind Waker Darknuts vs. Twilight princess's Darknuts

I prefer the challenge the TP Darknuts give and I prefer their looks over their WW counterparts. I do find parrying Darknuts in WW to be addictive though...

Re: The Wind Waker Darknuts vs. Twilight princess's Darknuts

I like the Twilight Princess versions of the Darknuts aswell. They provided a more physical battle sequences. In stead of just having to wait and pressing the "A" button. THey also had a better challenge. And they where very detailed.

The Wind Waker ones where pretty fun though.

Re: The Wind Waker Darknuts vs. Twilight princess's Darknuts

I liked the TP ones they looked better when their armour was off and I really didn't like the weird doberman look TWW ones had.

Re: The Wind Waker Darknuts vs. Twilight princess's Darknuts

TP's darknuts are among the coolest enemies I've ever seen in the Zelda series.

I did some research on them:
I wanted to see if there was any difference between the different colored darknuts in TP. I found that there are 6 types of darknuts: black (miniboss in ToT) which has a broadsword and round shield, blue / red / purple / silver, which have a curved sword and regular shield, and gray, which has a regular shield and a mace. The mace might have less reach, but they all do the same damage as far as I can tell, and all of them take 11 hits to disarm. The cave of ordeals has 3 rooms with darknuts: the first has 2 gray and later a red, the second has a red and 2 aeralfos, and the third has a red, a blue, a silver, and later a purple. Hyrule castle has 1 purple, then when the paths split the right path has 2 gray, and finally before the final door there's 1 purple. As far as I can tell, the colors and different weapons are just for variety, unlike LoZ and AoL in which the colors of enemies signified their strength.

I did notice the different colors of the darknuts, but I never noticed their different fighting skills. Either way TP darknuts kick ass!!

Re: The Wind Waker Darknuts vs. Twilight princess's Darknuts

I preferred TP's Darknuts, mainly because they pose more of a challenge. I forget if I've ever died from a Darknut in WW but I've died plenty of times in TP from them. (mainly in the Cave of Ordeals) Another reason I like Darknuts better in TP is because you get to fight 'em in 2 different parts.

Re: The Wind Waker Darknuts vs. Twilight princess's Darknuts

I voted Undecided, but I think that the TP darknut will "win". At least I thought they were harder to fight than the WW darknuts.

Re: The Wind Waker Darknuts vs. Twilight princess's Darknuts

In terms of difficulty i thought the TP dark nuts were harder. Really both are easy but the TP darknuts take longer to defeat. The TP ones also had a more realistic apperance and looked like real knights.
But i thought overall the WW dark nuts were more fun to fight.

Re: The Wind Waker Darknuts vs. Twilight princess's Darknuts

I'm going with Twilight Princess' Darknuts.

Personally though, I'd take a good 'ole Iron Knuckle anyday. Fighting one of those as Young Link with three hearts is extremely fun. 8D
