The Legend of Zelda Heart Containers
This guide will show you where all of the Heart Containers are in The Legend of Zelda.

Heart Containers
  - There is a total of 16 Heart Containers you can collect in The Legend of Zelda. You start the game with 3, and you are rewarded with one from every boss you defeat.

  - You can also locate 5 secret Heart Containers that this guide will help you locate, as they can be extremely useful when starting out. Most of them can be collected shortly after the beginning of the game.



~ First Quest ~

Click on the Hearts to be taken to that location.

Location #1
  - Most likely the first hidden Heart Container you'll find, as it's pretty easy to find and isn't far from the start screen.

  - From the start, head right four spaces. You will need the bombs for this one, which can be easily found by heading right four more screens and purchasing them.
Required:


Location #2
  - This is another easy find, but it's further from the start screen and the journey could be tough for new players to the game.

- From the start, head right four spaces, up five, and right one. Blast the right side of the large rock to reveal this location.
Required:


Location #3
  - This is one requires either the Blue Candle, which can be purchased from many stores, or the Red Candle found in Dungeon 7 of the first quest.

- From the start, head right one space, up three, and left one. Burn the fifth bush from the right to reveal a staircase.
Required:


Location #4
  - This one can only be gotten after the Raft has been found, which is well into the game, so you probably won't get this one very early on.

- From the start, head right eight spaces, up four and use the raft to head up once more.
Required:


Location #5
  - This one is also requires you to be pretty well into the game to snag, so you won't get this on your first shopping spree. You need the Stepladder, which is found about halfway through the game.

- From the start, head right eight spaces, and up two. Use the stepladder to climb to it.

~ Second Quest ~

Click on the Hearts to be taken to that location.

Location #1
  - This one can be found at the very beginning of the game, but is pretty hard to get to if you aren't prepared for the enemies around it.

  - From the start, head up one space, left five, up one and down on the left side, left one, through the Lost Woods and up four.
Required:


Location #2
  - Most likely this is the first one you'll find, as it's the easiest to reach, and the Whistle isn't in a very difficult dungeon.

- From the start, head right four spaces, up four, and left one. Use the whistle to reveal the hidden staircase.
Required:


Location #3
  - This one is extremely hard to get to as it's very far and the enemies nearby are very difficult to kill or even avoid. We highly recommend the stepladder for the journey there.

- From the start, head right one space, up five, left one, up one, cross the river, and up one, and finally right one. Play the whistle to reveal the staircase.
Required:


Location #4
  - This one is the same as the first quest and isn't too difficult to get to, so long as you have the raft already.

- From the start, head right eight spaces, up four and use the raft to head up once more.
Required:


Location #5
  - This one is also the same in the first quest, but you'll need the stepladder before trying to get it.

- From the start, head right eight spaces, and up two. Use the stepladder to climb to it.
