Heart piece (Twilight Princess)

Heart piece from Twilight Princess.

A heart piece is an item in the Legend of Zelda series. They act as fourths of a Heart Container (fifths in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess). They are scattered about Hyrule, although some can be acquired through completing tasks. Some Zelda games have omitted Heart Pieces, such as the Nintendo DS games The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass and The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks, though these games still contain Heart Containers that can be acquired by defeating bosses and completing certain optional side-missions.
