Black Knight
Appears in Dark Hyrule Castle. This is the strongest Dark Nut, with a good balance of attack and defense. They will do anything to stop you.

Black Knights are the strongest variant of Dark Nuts in both strength and endurance. They recover from attacks and blocks much more quickly than other Dark Nuts, though they boast the same attacks and patterns as other Dark Nuts with the addition of a charged thrust attack.

Link first encounters a Black Knight in Dark Hyrule Castle. When defeated, it summons four Dark Nuts and two Red Dark Nuts across four rooms in the Castle. A second Black Knight appears alongside two Red Dark Nuts during Vaati's ceremony to drain the Light Force from Princess Zelda.
