In Zelda: A Link to the Past, it is possible to get additional hearts by completing dungeons (which gives you a full heart), by finding very rare full hearts out in the game world, and by collecting pieces of heart in order to create a new, full heart.

What is the maximum number of hearts you can get?


There are 24 heart pieces, yielding 20 max hearts total.

Their locations are shown in detail here.

  • This tells you how many heart pieces there are, but it doesn't actually tell you what the maximum number of hearts actually is. – Frank Nov 22 '12 at 14:23
  • @fbueckert good point, edited. – Eric B Nov 22 '12 at 14:30

I recall 3 hearts at the beginning, a full heart after you rescue zelda,(four), a full heart for each pendant,(7),a full heart for each crystal, (14), and each row was even, so I believe 20 is correct , leaving 6 hearts to heart pieces, or 24 pieces.
