What is the difference between the Hookshot and Clawshot in 3d games?

Other than the Hookshot can latch onto treasure chests and the Clawshot's chain can extend and shorten, what do they do differently? I need to know this, since I've been working on a Zelda game and I'd like that item to be in the water dungeon.

Clawshot works like a crane game, the fingers have to have something they can grip, usually some kind of grate. Hookshot just spears through something, usually wood.

That's pretty much it.

The big difference is that the clawshot can do the same things as the hookshot and can also pick up fallen rupees and recovery hearts.

You stick to the wall with the clawshot until you feel like getting off, but with the hookshot you automatically fall. Also when hanging from something with the hookshot you can retract up and down. Also I think you can pick up rupees and stuff with the clawshot. Yea the clawshot could even be called a viable upgrade to the hookshot, like the hookshot is to the longshot.

The hookshot may freeze the enemy but I forgot if the clawshot did the same thing.

I'm quite sure the clawshot just dazes them for half a second unlike the hookshot which freezes them for several seconds.

That's debatable, I prefer the Hookshot. There are things the Hookshot can do that the Clawshot can't, and there are more stuff to latch onto with the Hookshot than there are for the Clawshot.

Re: What is the difference between the Hookshot and Clawshot in 3d games?

^ Really? I cant think of anything in any zelda game that only the hookshot could latch to that the clawshot couldn't.... and could you please tell me what things the hookshot can do that the clawshot can't? I don't remember using the hookshot that much in the 2d games, could the advantages be there?

EDIT: All found was that it can stun enemies longer, but isn't that the boomerangs job?

^ The hookshot can latch on to wooden crates/poles and roofs on houses. I don'trecall the clawshot latching on to any of those things.

One is a hook. One is a claw.

Simple as that.
Hook shot is pointed and hookes into the things.

Clawshot grabs it like a claw.

The Hookshot can latch onto a Treasure Chest. The Clawshot can't. The Clawshot can only latch onto Clawshot Medallions and grated areas, while the Hookshot can latch onto wood, grating, medallions, and many other things.
