A Link to the Past: Heart Pieces

Hearts are what keep you from dying, whether you're fighting a monster, a boss, or dodging a boulder. However, when you progress throughout the game, you might not have enough health to defeat some challenges. That's where Heart Pieces come in. At the beginning of the game, you start off with three Heart Containers. Four Heart Pieces make a full Heart Container, however, every boss drops a Heart Container.
