Pieces of Heart,(ALttP | OoT | MM | OoS | OoA | TWW | TWWHD | TMC | TP | TPHD | SS | ALBW | CoH)[1][2][3][4][name references needed] also known as Rare Peach Stones,(OoS)[5] are recurring Items in The Legend of Zelda series. They are collected to form a full Heart Container, extending Link's maximum health by one Heart.

Pieces of Heart were first seen in A Link to the Past, and have since appeared in almost every other title following it. Pieces of Heart are scattered throughout the world. They can be found in Treasure Chests,[6] won in Mini-Games,[7] purchased[8], or given to Link after completing a Side Quest. In many games, a Heart Container can form by collecting four Pieces of Heart.[9] Obtaining a Piece of Heart will immediately refill all of Link's health, regardless of whether or not that Piece of Heart is completing a Heart Container. The amount of Pieces of Heart depends primarily on how many Heart Containers are in the game; the Pieces of Heart, combined with the Heart Containers, typically add up to a total of 20 Hearts by the end of a game.

It is unknown if any character other than Link understands the use and purpose of the Pieces of Heart, or if any character other than Link can use the Pieces of Heart, as very few characters ever have anything to say about them, even when handing them out as rewards. In Twilight Princess, if Link catches the Piece of Heart while fishing in the Fishing Hole, Hena will remark "Whose heart did you catch? You big sweetheart!" In Skyward Sword, Beedle will eventually sell Link a Piece of Heart starting at 1,600 Rupees. If Link asks Beedle about the item so that he can buy it, Beedle will tell him that he does not actually know what it is, and that he found it somewhere nearby. Fortune tellers who give hints leading to the location of Pieces of Heart refer to them as something having to do with love.

Although now a series staple, a number of games do not feature Pieces of Heart. Four Swords, Four Swords Adventures and Tri Force Heroes do not have collectible Pieces of Heart, as Heart Containers are not permanent upgrades in those games. Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks, despite having permanent Heart Containers, also do not have Pieces of Heart. In Breath of the Wild, Pieces of Heart are replaced by Spirit Orbs, and are obtained at the end of every Shrine. Four Spirit Orbs can be traded in for a Heart Container at a Goddess Statue.

A Link to the Past



There are 24 Pieces of Heart in A Link to the Past. 19 can be found in the Light World, and five can be found in the Dark World. Each Piece of Heart amounts to one fourth of a Heart Container.

Link's Awakening



There are 12 Pieces of Heart in Link's Awakening and 32 Pieces of Heart in Link's Awakening for Nintendo Switch. Four Pieces of Heart are required to form a new Heart Container, totaling Link's Life Gauge to 14 Heart Containers in Link's Awakening and 20 in Link's Awakening for Nintendo Switch.

A Piece of Heart can be found in a puddle of Water in the Well.

Ocarina of Time



There are 36 Pieces of Heart in Ocarina of Time. Four Pieces of Heart are required to form a new Heart Container. Some Pieces of Heart require Magic Bean to acquire.

Majora's Mask

There are 52 Pieces of Heart in Majora's Mask; the most out of any game in The Legend of Zelda series. This is due to Majora's Mask featuring fewer Bosses than usual, therefore fewer Heart Containers.

In Majora's Mask 3D, the Sheikah Stone can show Link 23 different Hint Photos revealing the location of a Piece of Heart that is not received as a reward for completing an action during an Event.

The Wind Waker

There are 44 Pieces of Heart in The Wind Waker. The Sea and Island Hearts Charts reveal the location in both the sea and on islands.[10][11]

The Japanese version of The Wind Waker has different locations for some of the Pieces of Heart:

  • The Treasure Chest under House contains a Piece of Heart instead of 100 Rupees. In the North American and European versions, this Piece of Heart was moved to the bottom of the Savage Labyrinth which originally contained only 10 Rupees.
  • The Treasure Chest at the center of Horseshoe Island contains a Piece of Heart instead of Treasure Chart 28. In the North American and European versions, this Piece of Heart in turn is the reward for Wind-Powerd Ferris Wheel, instead of just a few Rupees.[how many?]
  • The Treasure Chest on one of the small islands at Forest Haven contains a Piece of Heart instead of Treasure Chart 3. In the North American and European versions, this Piece of Heart in turn is the reward for placing 14 Decorations across Windfall Island, instead of 100 Rupees.

The Minish Cap

Four Pieces of Heart are required to form a new Heart Container in The Minish Cap. A total of 44 Pieces of Heart can be found throughout Hyrule, with some appearing in Dungeons, atop beanstalks grown from Beans, and within Secret Caves. Some cannot be accessed until specific Kinstone Fusions are performed.

Twilight Princess

There are 45 Pieces of Heart in Twilight Princess. This game breaks the tradition by requiring five Pieces of Heart in order to form a Heart Container as opposed to the usual four.[12] Despite of this, Link's smallest unit of health is still a quarter-Heart. Pieces of Heart in Twilight Princess are found in the usual manners, though more Pieces of Heart are found inside Dungeons than in prior games.

At her shop in Hyrule Castle Town, Madame Fanadi can show Link a vision of the location of a Piece of Heart if Link pays for a fortune about "Love".

Skyward Sword



There are 24 Pieces of Heart in Skyward Sword.

A Link Between Worlds



There are 28 Pieces of Heart in A Link Between Worlds.

Hyrule Warriors

Pieces of Hearts can be found in Scenarios in Legend Mode and in Battles in Adventure Mode in Hyrule Warriors. Each Piece of Heart can only be obtained by a specific Warrior and will form a full Heart Container when that Warrior has collected four Pieces of Heart. Pieces of Heart can typically be found in a Treasure Chest that appears when Allied Forces capture certain Keeps. The Treasure Chest containing a Piece of Heart can only be opened by the Warrior that can obtain the Piece. If none of the Warriors are the correct Warrior, a different Treasure Chest containing Rupees or a Weapon will appear instead. Every Scenario except for the five in Cia's Tale has a hidden Piece of Heart in Hyrule Warriors while all Scenarios in Hyrule Warriors Legends and Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition have a hidden Piece of Heart.
