        Black Knights have very high poise. Given their sturdy and weighty armor, this makes sense.

        But why the actual fuck do these guys have just as much?

          So I guess that they can, like the crabs, attack us when invading but we cannot attack them (!) is TOTALY not an important info here? Okay...

              One of the most unfair enemies in the game.
              - Infinite stamina.
              - High poise in spite of wearing rags and being slim.
              - A bit erratic moveset.
              - Frequently surrounded by other enemies (Cathedral).

              For me this enemie enter in my top list of unfair enemies of Dark Souls 3 along with Lycanthropes, big skeletons of Carthus and the ghru leapers.

                The claws found in Consumed King's Garden ruins them with the special attack and keep pressing L1 when inside.

                  They have hyper armor on some of their attacks lmao. I swear FromSoftware does not know how to make enemies anymore. Might as well give every enemy DS1 poise and an ultra and let them swing it forever like a straight sword. Oh wait, we already have enemies like that in this game. They happen to be in the same area as these enemies. LUL

                    These bastards can close gaps like a champ and dodge spells as smoothly as the pontiff boss himself. Couldn't get a single cast off without running miles away!

                      These bastards can poise through a fully charged one-handed R2 from a Great Club. If that's not hyper armor, idk what is...

                        They're girls technically right? They have skirts, and were probably cute if they were to purge the hollowing. The Warden set gives your character a nice midriff too.

                              These enemies not only cleave you, but most enemies near them. Including Hollows and Starved Hounds. They seem to be neutral to anything if it gets into their hitbox.

                                Their attacks are telegraphed and can be avoided easily, but the double slash does crazy damage and they are fast. Luckily, their hp isn't too high either.

                                    These guys are among the toughest humanoids you'll ever fight in this game. Their attacks are super fast. Be prepared to from their flurry of attacks (it's very rapid so don't even think about attacking them until their combo ends), don't shield, their combo hits many times so it'll break your shield + they have bleed build-up so blocking is never a good idea with them. Not to mention, they are quite a good poise, so they cannot be staggered easily.
