Heart Pieces are reoccurring items in the Legend of Zelda. They are pieces of Heart Containers that Link must collect to gain more Heart Containers. Link must collect 4 Heart Pieces (5 in Twilight Princess) to make a new Heart Container. Heart Pieces first started in the Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. The only games without Heart Pieces are The Legend of Zelda (NES), Zelda II, and Phantom Hourglass.
