Pieces of Heart are recurring items in The Legend of Zelda series. Link needs to collect four (five in Twilight Princess) in order to get a complete Heart Container. Each game has a different number of Pieces of Heart to be found, ranging from twelve in the original Link's Awakening to 52 in Majora's Mask. They are not rare, though some of them take a long time to acquire, such as the 50 Gold Skulltula Tokens required to get one of the Pieces of Heart in Ocarina of Time.
