Hylian Knights are characters that reside in the Harbor Town of Mido and Mountain Town of Darunia in The Adventure of Link. They are skilled swordsmen, but do not live in the open as other townsfolk do. If Link can access their abodes, they will teach him the Downward Thrust and Upward Thrust techniques, which are required to finish the game.
