Darknut is a fictional enemy from the Legend of Zelda Series, who makes an appearance in Super Smash Brothers as both a trophy and enemy.
 Super Smash Brothers Brawl
Darknuts appear in Super Smash Brothers Brawl as a trophy.
 Super Smash Brothers 3DS/Wii U
Darknuts attack by swinging their large swords around. Their shields deflect attacks, so try to hit them from behind!Smash Run Tip
Darknuts reappear in Super Smash Brothers 3DS/Wii U as formidable opponents in the newest game mode, Smash Run. Their shields render attacking them from the front useless unless they swing their swords, so rolling behind them to attack is a wise strategy.
After enough damage the Darknut will dispose of his shield, opening him up to attacks from the front as well.
