This article is about the item in The Adventure of Link. For the item in Link's Awakening, see Yoshi Doll.

Dolls,[1] also known as Extra Lives,[citation needed] are items in The Adventure of Link.[note 1]

Location and Uses

Dolls are odd dolls that seemed to have been crafted to resemble Link.[3] They increase the number of Link's lives when collected.[3] They are well hidden in certain areas of Hyrule's overworld. However, once they are collected, they disappear from their locations for the rest of the game and cannot be recollected.


  • The sprite for the Doll was re-used from Link's overworld sprite.
