Link’s Awakening, the first Game Boy Zelda title, had an interesting mechanic that hasn’t reappeared in the series in quite the same way. On occasion, one could find a temporary upgrade that aided Link in some way. There were the Guardian Acorns, which boosted Link’s defense while one was active. And there were the Pieces of Power, which boosted his attack while one was active. You could find them as drops from most enemies.
