Enemy/Boss Tips

Defeat unarmored Darknuts without using Hidden Skills

L-target and perform four sword thrusts by tilting up on the control stick and pressing B. Make sure to leave enough room so only the fourth thrust connects. The Darknut will then swing its sword twice; immediately after the second swing, perform a Jump Slash on the Darknut. This will cause the Darknut to raise its sword in the air, leaving you free to attack it.
