Which is more impressive?
 
References of characters using these would be cool, too.
 
Also, check out this battle: Throwing Knives vs Swords.

I have trained and used the Bo Staff, but I like the Nunchukus more.

There are staffs you can supposedly morph into spears (not using the makeshift way), and nunchukus you can morph into batons. I forget what they're called, but I enjoy both weapons. Each have their perks and whatnot, but still pretty deadly.

@TheSuperHuman: Yup. The Bo Staff can be an intimidating weapon in the hands of the most skilled users, but the Nunchukus appeals to me more.

This might appeal to you as it does to me.

Can Bo Staff have hidden compartments for like chains and be used as a chain staff?
Or like have those hidden chain daggers in the ends?

Both the staff and nunchukus can.

@TheSuperHuman: Yeah, lol. But that was also punching/kicking melee combat as well, but yeah...

You have to admit that that nunchukus work was epic.

@TheSuperHuman: Well of course. I thought he was going to split his head apart almost at one point.

And with that, I'd say it's more difficult to master the nunchukus.

@TheSuperHuman: Although the Bo Staff is originally Japanese, Chinese martial arts use it. In my study of Kung Fu, I had to use it. Karate doesn't use them so much for some reason. I see the Bo Staff being a superior weapon in range (because its a pole arm), but close range efficiency would go to the Nunchukus for sure, the video even showed that.

Then personally I would pick the staff because it is commonly split into a chain staff that works similarly to a nunchaku except with massive range.
And it's length helps in concealing more weapons in the hollow parts.
Course the nunchuku has one major advantage in that it is easily carried and concealed while the bo staff is at least 3-4ft long with the longest being up to 8ft in length.
Also it's much easier to use a giant stick as a weapon than a swinging weapon.

@Mad8Baller: The Bo Staff is not so effective at super-close-quarters, whereas the Nunchukus is.

All good points, even the correction. Haha.

True, but I much rather use my limbs than a nunchaku.  Basically cause I have no idea how to use one properly without hurting myself.

Sun Wukong used a pimped out version

@Mad8Baller: LOL. I'll admit I'm skilled with the Bo Staff but not nearly as skilled with the Nunchukus.

My attempt to use the nunchukus did not end well. Let's just say there were massive groin shots that quickly became annoying. But I've always been a fan of the spear and the staff, so I employed them with heart.

@TheSuperHuman: Ditto, except for the groin shots.
