Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity
In Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, apples do not appear physically. However, there is the icon of an apple, which can be used to heal several hearts. Although the character can only hold three apples at first, as the character progresses, he will be able to hold 4 apples. There are also baked apples, which can be obtained after burning the character. For example, if the character gets burned by a Bomb Barrel, the apples will become baked, and heal more hearts.
