Is Krampus better than St. Nicholas at getting kids to behave?

I believe fear is a better motivator than reward. imagine u are being chased by a bear. you are going to run as fast as u possibly can. no imagine there is a present at the end of the run waiting for you. you wont run as fast as you would being chased by a bear.

Con

St. Nicholas is a better modivator.
Reasons-
First of all, kids don't get anything out Krampus. They can do whatever they want, and reguardless, they still don't get punished by Krampus. However, with St. Nicholas, parents can choose not to give the gifts from "St. Nicholas" to their children. This makes it seem more realisitic. However, there is no proof for Krampus.

Back to you Pro.

Do you mean Krampus and St. Nicholas in the metaphorical sense or is the assertion truly to debate the two figures? I'll gladly take the debate if it's the first. As I believe in neither, I'll allow someone else to fill the role of CON if the latter is the case.
