Been a while since I read the exact section [In reply to] Can't Post

The Peoples of Middle-Earth, Volume 12 of The History of Middle Earth

"But in the forefront of the charge they saw two great horsemen, clad in grey, unlike all the others, and the Orcs fled before them; but when the battle was won they could not be found, and none knew whence they came or whither they went. But in Rivendell it was recorded that these were the sons of Elrond, Elladan and Elrohir."

Well they are Galadriel's grandsons [In reply to] Can't Post

Elladan and Elrohir may have inherited some of Galadriel's abilities. Honestly who knows but it is an elvish quality to seemingly appear and disappear. This could be attributed to elvish reflexes and stealth. To a human or dwarf, the elf appears to move in and out of view but to other elves it may not seem unique or mysterious.

Also according to Tolkien, the twins were not exactly elvish despite being 75% elven through the full blooded mother Celebrian. They had numenorean and elvish traits, I guess a best of both worlds. Recall in Paths of the Dead, the twins had despair but Legolas being full blooded did not fear the spirits of the dead. Also their eyesight wasn't as keen as Legolas, but then whose would compare to a master archer like him? Compare horse skills and swordplay and the twins probably surpass the Mirkwood Prince.
