Hero mode is the mode you can play in Skyward Sword, after you finish the game at least once. It is more difficult than normal mode. In Hero mode there are no heart flowers, hearts are not found in pots or bushes unless you have the heart medal. Instead to heal, Link must rely on potions and chairs. All enemies in hero mode deal twice as much damage as they would in normal mode and all of your treasures and bugs will be transferred from your previous file. Your sword will also charges Skyward Strike at the same rate as the True Master Sword. When you obtain the True Master Sword it charges Skyward Strike instantly.
