Darknuts are basically stalfos in armor; corpses animated by evil magic. As such, their creation is based on the Enslave spell, and can be undone by a Healing spell. If a Healing spell is cast on a darknut, its armor and weapons vanish, and it colapses into a pile of bones.
They wear armor which is color-coded backwards from most Hyrulian armor; red armor doubles the damage they can take, and blue armor quadruples it. Their shields have a Penetration Resistance of 3. This armor protects them from all kinds of fire or ice-based spells, except Medallions.
Red darknuts carry daggers which cause 1 point of damage, and blue darknuts' swords cause 2.
