In Zelda games the maximum is normally 20, however due to the Life Medals I'm uncertain if this holds true. Futhermore, if the maximum is 20, is that with or without Life Medals?
There are 20
- 6 that you start with
- 6 from the Pieces of Heart (there are 24, and you need 4 to make a full heart container)
- 2 from the Life Medals
- 6 from the bosses in the game. (Demon Lord Ghirahim, Pyroclastic Fiend Scaldera, Thousand-Year Arachnid Moldarach, Ancient Automaton Koloktos, Abysmal Leviathan Tentalus, and the second fight with Demon Lord Ghirahim all reward you with a heart container after you defeat them.)
