"Really looks like Link. Link's LIFE increases by 1 when you get hold of this."
Link Dolls are items found within The Adventure of Link. These items are scattered throughout Hyrule and if Link collects one of them, it will give him an extra life. These small dolls resemble that of Link's sprite while he is walking in the Overworld.
There are six of these dolls that Link can collect along his quest. Link can only get these dolls once as they will disappear after he collects them. Even if Link gets a Game Over, these dolls will not re-spawn.
|Moruge Swamp in Western Hyrule||One square southwest of the boulder that is blocking the Cave in the Moruge Swamp. This boulder is found at the west end of Western Hyrule, just after you exit the cave that is south of the Town of Ruto.|
|King's Tomb in Western Hyrule||Southwest of King's Tomb in West Hyrule. The doll can be found right on the cost to the west of the graves.|
|Eastern Hyrule, near Maze Island||Found at the northern part of Eastern Hyrule. As Link is walking eastward to Maze Island, the Link Doll is found on the southern coast on a patch of Desert.|
|Eastern Hyrule, South of the River Devil||Found in East Hyrule in a swamp area just passed the River Devil. Travel south from the River Devil to reach an area of gravestones. Just north of the gravestones, there is a swamp area. The Link doll is found on a screen at the northwest corner of this swamp region.|
|Three-Eye Rock Palace*||Found within the Three-Eye Rock Palace in a few rooms just before Link faces off with Barba. As Link walks to the right, he'll drop into a hole that has two collapsible platforms. Link will need to make a timely jump to reach the right side of the room. The Jump Spell is recommended to ease this jump. The Link Doll is found to the right of a Blue Iron Knuckle and a pair of Bubbles that Link will encounter.|
|Great Palace*||Near the very end of the Great Palace, Link will be heading downward on an elevator where he can head left, right, or continue down on the elevator. Going to the right leads to a Fairy, while heading to the left leads to the final Link Doll.|
|*The Link Dolls in Three-Eye Rock Palace and Great Palace will become unobtainable if not collected before completing the respective palace.|
- The Adventure of Link is the only Zelda title that uses lives rather than Heart Containers. Thus, the Link Dolls are the only type of extra life that Link encounters in the entire series.
- If Link changes the color of his tunic to red using the Shield Spell, this also causes the Link Doll to change to red.
