I want to get the Master Sword before taking on Vah Medoh, but I only have 9 hearts. I do have Mipha's Grace, and if it activates, it gives me 5 more yellow hearts. Can I pull out the Master Sword with this combination, or do all of the hearts have to be red?


No, only the red hearts count.

From the Prima guide:

To get the Master Sword you need a total of 13 hearts. Any additional hearts you get from food or other abilities do not count toward the 13-heart total. You have to have 13 hearts as Link’s base health to pull the Master Sword from the ground.

    I can confirm this; I tried it first time with extra yellow hearts, but they don't show on the counter. – adaliabooks May 11 '17 at 7:44
