Here is the Game-Art-HQ article for my Darknut submission written by
Ever since the first game, the Darknut has become one of the most formidable foes Link has ever faced. And my favorite example is the Darknut from Twilight Princess. Compared to Wind Waker's Darknut, both of them are fun to take on, however, TP's Darknut was even more fun for me because it was a lot more challenging and engaging in this intense swordplay combat. Both versions involve disarming the Darknut's armor, but TP's Darknut becomes even more dangerous once his heavy armor has been stripped. Without his armor on, his agility & faster swordplay rivals that with Link's. Also, what I like about this Darknut is that it serves as the perfect test towards the player's sword skills after learning all those secret sword techniques and therefore preparing yourself before your final confrontation with Ganondorf. In Wind Waker, you just need to Parry (basically a quick-time event/counter attack) and then attack the Darknut, making it easier than it looks.
