Heart Piece #01

Tp heart 01.png

Location: Faron Woods

In the deeper part of Faron Woods, you'll find a cave to the northwest (Wii) / northeast (GCN) where you initially find a Small Key. If you fail to get it your first time through, you'll have to use the Lantern to get through the fog and make your way to the cave. Inside, light the two torches to make a large chest appear on the platform, the chest contains your first heart piece.

Heart Piece #02

Tp heart 02.png

Location: Forest Temple

In the room with the Bomblings and Deku Likes, one of the Deku Likes is blocking an alcove with a Large Chest. To defeat it, you can climb up to the platform above it, smack the nearby Bombling and drop it over the edge so it swallows it. Alternatively, you can return later when you have Bombs.

NOTE: If you complete the Forest Temple without getting this, you'll need the Clawshot to return to this room!

Heart Piece #03

Tp heart 03.png

Location: Forest Temple

In the room with the Tile Worms (worm enemies that peak out from under the tiles), blow out all the torches using the Gale Boomerang to reveal a hidden alcove with a large chest, the chest contains the third heart piece.

NOTE: If you complete the Forest Temple without getting this, you'll need the Clawshot to return to this room!

Heart Piece #04

Tp heart 04.png

Location: Hyrule Field (North of Faron Woods)

In the portion of Hyrule Field just north of Faron Woods, go straight forward (from Faron Province) and you'll come to a rise with two Bulblin Warriors. After defeating them, look at the tree to the north (before the bridge) and you'll find a Piece of Heart in its branches. Use the Gale Boomerang to bring it over.

Heart Piece #05

Tp heart 05.png

Location: Kakariko Gorge

In the portion of Hyrule Field just south of Kakariko Village, there are two large rock formations in the distance towards the center of Hyrule. There's a Piece of Heart atop the larger one, so use the Gale Boomerang to bring it over.

Heart Piece #06

Tp heart 06.png

Location: Ordon Village

After restoring light to the Eldin Province and getting Epona back, you can return to Ordon Village and help Fado herd the goats during the day. If you can manage to herd all 20 goats in under three minutes, he'll gift you with a Piece of Heart.

Heart Piece #07

Tp heart 07.png

Location: Goron Mines

In the room where you walk around on the ceiling due to the large magnetic field, you can walk to the far northwest (Wii) / northeast (GCN) corner and find a hidden platform with a large chest containing the Piece of Heart.

Heart Piece #08

Tp heart 08.png

Location: Goron Mines

In the room just north of the large central chamber, the room is divided into two areas. On the north side of the room there are two Beamos in the center, while along the east (Wii) / west (GCN) wall there is a magnetic field. Walk up it with the Iron Boots and turn south to find a platform with a large chest containing the heart piece.

Heart Piece #09

Tp heart 09.png

Location: Kakariko Village

After completing the Goron Mines, Talo can be found atop the highest building in the village. To get up there, speak with the Goron at the building's base and climb up the ladder. Speak with Talo, who will ask Link to teach him how to use the bow.

You'll appear down near the Sanctuary along with Malo. After shooting two relatively easy targets, Talo will yell at you to shoot a pole at the corner of the high building. Just aim carefully at the corner of the building itself, pull the bowstring all the way back, raise your cross arrow a bit and release. Malo will gift you with a Piece of Heart in reward.

Heart Piece #10

Tp heart 11.png

Location: Kakariko Village

There are some boulders just above the Eldin Spring. Once you buy Bombs from Barnes Bombs, you can combine them with the Hero's Bow to create Bomb Arrows. Blast the boulders to reveal a Piece of Heart. Use the Gale Boomerang to bring it down.

Heart Piece #11

Tp heart 10.png

Location: Kakariko Village

Blow up the boulder near the Eldin Spring and follow the path to drop down into the spring itself. Put on the Iron Boots to sink down where you can find a large chest containing the heart piece.

Heart Piece #12

Tp heart 22.png

Location: Death Mountain

Once you have completed the Goron Mines, there will be Gorons along the trail leading up to Death Mountain. These friendly dudes will allow you to get on their back and shoot you up the ledges. From Kakariko Village, speak with the second Goron you come to, get on his back and face off to the right (Wii) / left (GCN) instead. Hold forward on the analog stick and you'll be able to grab onto the ledge and pull yourself up.

Follow this higher path to the north and you'll find an alcove off to the right. Enter and drop down to find a large chest containing a Piece of Heart.

Heart Piece #13

Tp heart 23.png

Location: Kakariko Gorge Cavern

In the southern portions of Kakariko Gorge is a boulder blocking a cave. Blow it up, then enter and use your Lantern to navigate through this enemy filled area.

At the forks, go: left, left, right, left (Wii) / right, right, left, right (GCN) to find a dead end with a Skulltula. Defeat it, then light the torches to make a large chest appear containing a Piece of Heart.

Heart Piece #14

Tp heart 12.png

Location: Hyrule Field (North of Kakariko Village)

When you exit Kakariko Village to the north, you'll arrive in a large portion of Hyrule Field to the west (Wii) / east (GCN) of Castle Town. You'll come to some boulders in this rocky area. Blow them up with Bombs and follow the path to some vines and more boulders. Use Bomb Arrows to blow up the boulders on the ledge, then jump across the gap to grab the vines. Pull yourself up and continue on to find a large chest on a ledge containing the heart piece.

Heart Piece #15

Tp heart 15.png

Location: Castle Town

In Castle Town, there's an old man by the name of Charlo hanging out near the east (Wii) / west (GCN) exit just north of Purlo's tent. When you speak with him, he'll ask you to donate. By giving him 1,000 Rupees, you'll be rewarded with a Piece of Heart. I highly recommend gathering Golden Bugs for this side quest and giving them to Agitha in Castle Town to earn Rupees quickly.

Heart Piece #16

Tp heart 14.png

Location: Hena's Fishing Hole

When in Hena's Fishing Hole, look towards the central pillars to see a Piece of Heart atop the rock formation. When in the boat, you can use the Fishing Rod to bring it over to you. Alternatively, you could use the Gale Boomerang and lock on from the shore.

Heart Piece #17

Tp heart 13.png

Location: Isle of Riches

In Lake Hylia, speak with Fyer to get shot up to the top of Lake Hylia (Hyrule Field). From here, you can play Falbi's Flight-by-Fowl to glide with a Cucco to the Isle of Riches. Use the Analog Stick to move around and slow down. The second to top tier (the highest and smallest one that isn't spinning) has a large chest that contains a Piece of Heart.

Heart Piece #18

Tp heart 20.png

Location: Lake Hylia Cavern

In the southern portion of Lake Hylia is a ladder. Climb up it and blow up the boulder to the south to reveal a cavern. Inside, you'll need your Lantern to see through the darkness, blowing your way from passage to passage. At the end of the lengthy cavern, you'll finally come to a large chest containing a Piece of Heart.

Heart Piece #19

Tp heart 17.png

Location: Lakebed Temple

Once you have restored the water flow from both the east and west sides, you can turn the stairs so that water flows into the lower west (Wii) / east (GCN). Return to the room with the rotating platforms and stalactites you had to shoot down for a small key earlier. By filling this area with water, it raises a bridge that was an obstacle earlier and allows us to access a mysterious area.

Once you get there, stand on the switch to open the gate up ahead, then use the Clawshot on target to get on the other side before the gate closes. Open the large chest for a Piece of Heart.

Heart Piece #20

Tp heart 16.png

Location: Lakebed Temple

In the middle of the ceiling of the large central chamber (with the spinning staircase) is a giant chandelier. You can get up there by using the various targets in all of the compass directions. On top, you will find a large chest with the heart piece.

Heart Piece #21

Tp heart 18.png

Location: Sacred Grove

Once you have acquired the Master Sword and Shadow Crystal, you can enter the small area to the side where we fought Skull Kid the first time. There is a large boulder here that you can blow up with Bombs to reveal a sparkly spot you can see in wolf form. Dig down into it to find a cavern filled with Baba Serpents. Defeat them all (use the Gale Boomerang on the ones hanging from the ceiling) to make a large chest appear containing the heart piece.

NOTE: If you fail to get this the first time through, you can always get it later when you return to the Sacred Grove and get the warp portal.

Heart Piece #22

Tp heart 25.png

Location: West Castle Town Bridge

The Goron at the bridge leading from Castle Town to the portion of Hyrule Field just north of Kakariko Village will leave this behind as thanks for energizing him with Hot Spring Water. Check our our Malo Mart & Magic Armor guide for very detailed instructions on how to get this Piece of Heart.

Heart Piece #23

Tp heart 19.png

Location: Lanayru Spring

After you've acquired the Clawshot, you can enter Lanayru Spring in Lake Hylia, and to either the left or right, you'll find some vines. Use the Clawshot to get across and follow it to a hidden room in the back (far south). Inside, light the two torches with your Lantern to make a large chest appear containing the heart piece.

Heart Piece #24

Tp heart 21.png

Location: Lake Hylia

After you have restored light to the Lanayru Province and attained the Master Sword and Shadow Crystal, you can return to Lake Hylia and meet up with a new character named Plumm. Simply approach any Hawk Grass while in wolf form to make him appear. He has a mini-game available for free in which you ride a Kargarok up Zora's River popping balloons. Get only oranges or only strawberries to get over 10,000 points, and he'll give you a Piece of Heart in reward.

Heart Piece #25

Tp heart 24.png

Location: Bridge of Eldin Cavern

Just north of the Bridge of Eldin is an upper platform that you can reach with the Clawshot (by latching onto the target against the wall). Follow this path to the west (Wii) / east (GCN) to find a cavern.

Inside, follow the very obvious path, jumping down and using the Iron Boots to get sucked into the magnetic fields. At the end of the cavern (at the very bottom), you will find a large chest with your prize.

Heart Piece #26

Tp heart 26.png

Location: Bulblin Fortress

In the Gerudo Desert, just before entering the Arbiter's Grounds is the Bulblin Fortress. In the northwest (Wii) / northeast (GCN) corner they are roasting a Bullbo over a fire. Slash the Bullbo with your sword until it explodes, revealing a Piece of Heart. Brutal!

Heart Piece #27

Tp heart 27.png

Location: Arbiter's Grounds

In the large, central room where the blue flames are stolen by the Poes, there's a chest to either side of the stairs. On the left (Wii) / right (GCN) side it contains a Piece of Heart. When getting it, it's recommended to Clawshot over and roll back along the platforms (otherwise, you will be unable to get back without drowning in quicksand).

Heart Piece #28

Tp heart 28.png

Location: Arbiter's Grounds

In the room with the massive amount of Spinner rails, the mid level you can get to has a rotating spike log thing of death, but to the far west (Wii) / east (GCN) side there's a chest on the upper platform along with a Stalfos. Kill it, then open the chest for a Piece of Heart.

Heart Piece #29

Tp heart 29.png

Location: North of the Great Bridge of Hylia

Between the Great Bridge of Hylia and the area North of Castle Town, there's a back route that's blocked off by boulders. After you've blown them up, you can access this shortcut which has rails along the bottom. One set of rails leads upwards, then breaks off into several rails that go back and forth. Repeatedly use the Spinner to jump back and forth and eventually you'll get to a platform with a large chest with an obvious reward.

Heart Piece #30

Tp heart 30.png

Location: North of the Bridge of Eldin

Just north of the Bridge of Eldin is a small bridge across the black abyss (right next to the entrance to the Hidden Village). Use the rails along the north wall to get to a platform with grass. Transform into a wolf and dig down into the sparkly spot in the center. Inside, kill the three Stalfos to make a large chest appear containing the Piece of Heart.

Heart Piece #31

Tp heart 31.png

Location: Snowpeak Ruins

On the second floor, there room to the far southeast (Wii) / southwest (GCN) has some Freezards in cages and a cannon. At the top, there's a target against the wall in the corner. The floor here looked uneven, meaning you can use Bombs to blow it up. Alternatively, you can use the Ball and Chain to break it.

Fall down into a mysterious room on the first floor where there's a large chest. Open it to get a Piece of Heart, then use the target to get back to the second floor.

Heart Piece #32

Tp heart 32.png

Location: Snowpeak Ruins

In the entrance room, once you reach this room on the second floor, use the Ball and Chain on the target that's next to the east (Wii) / west (GCN) door. This will unveil a target so you can get back up quickly in case you fall down during this next puzzle.

Jump onto the chandelier, then turn to the south where you'll see two more in a row. On your mini-map, you'll also see there's a chest to the far south. Using the Ball and Chain to strike the chandeliers, you'll be able to steadily work your way south, eventually jumping to the platform and opening the chest.

Heart Piece #33

Tp heart 33.png

Location: Snowpeak

After completing the Snowpeak Ruins, you can warp to the top of Snowpeak and speak with Yeto and Yeta to race them.

The first race is against Yeto, who isn't that hard. Simply hold forward the entire time and you'll easily stay ahead of him. Warp back to the top and this time, speak with Yeta. She's much faster and she also jumps up to a shortcut halfway through that you can see on your map. Be sure to take this shortcut as well, otherwise, you'll be unable to beat her. In reward, she'll give you a Piece of Heart.

Heart Piece #34

Tp heart 34.png

Location: Ice Block Cavern

In the portion of Hyrule Field just north of Castle Town, go to the lower portion of the rocky area to the far north. Here, you'll find a Tektite and Lizalfos along with a boulder blocking a cave. Blow it up (or use the Ball and Chain) and head inside.

Break through the ice with the Ball and Chain, then you'll have three rooms of block puzzles to complete. For details on how to do this, check our Block Puzzle Guide. When you get to the final room, you'll gain access to a large chest containing a Piece of Heart.

Heart Piece #35

Tp heart 35.png

Location: Temple of Time

In the room with several Lizalfos, Dynalfos and walls that move back and forth, there's a chest in the corner, but you're unable to get to it due to the electric barrier. Use either the giant statue with the Dominion Rod or one of the nearby little statues to step on the switch on the other side of the barrier. This will temporarily deactivate it, allowing you to go back there and open the chest.

Heart Piece #36

Tp heart 36.png

Location: Temple of Time

In the room with the spinning mechanism to raise and lower the platform, go to the bottom and collect the small statue, then take it to the mid level and collect that small statue as well. Take them both to the south and place them on the floor switches (or use the giant statue when on your way back to the entrance). This allows you to access the far southern room.

Kill the enemies in here, then use the Dominion Rod to move the little statue on the upper platform to the far south. Walk it down the ledge and onto the floor switch. Pick up one of the other nearby little statues and do the same on the opposite side. When both switches are pressed down, this makes a large chest appear in the west (Wii) / east (GCN) alcove.

Heart Piece #37

Tp heart 37.png

Location: Temple of Time (Entrance)

In the entrance area of the Temple of Time, before entering the dungeon itself, there is an Owl Statue to either side of the exit. To one side, it will reveal an area underneath the stairs where a large chest is waiting for you.

Heart Piece #38

Tp heart 38.png

Location: Hidden Village

After returning Ilia's Charm to her, you can come back to the Hidden Village and you'll find a ton of cats everywhere. If you talk to the cats as a wolf, they'll say you should find the "cucco leader." Break through the glass of the large building on the west (Wii) / east (GCN) side to find the cucco. He asks you to "play with them" meaning you speak to each one. You'll start from one end of the village and have to work your way to the other side. If you are successful, you'll be rewarded with a Piece of Heart that you have to go and pick up. Be sure to grab it before you leave or you'll have to do it all over again!!!

Heart Piece #39

Tp heart 39.png

Location: Bridge of Eldin

On the north side of the Bridge of Eldin, the Owl Statue is on an upper ledge (follow the mark on your map). Use the Dominion Rod to pull it down and walk it to the south side of the bridge. At the end, you'll see there's a lower area you can drop it down into. Do so, then place it in the middle of this area. Once you have it situated nicely, use it to jump across to a ladder, which takes you up on top of the wall next to the bridge. Kill the Bulblin Archer up here and open the large chest to get a Piece of Heart.

Heart Piece #40

Tp heart 40.png

Location: Ordon Woods

Once you have acquired the Dominion Rod, you have to go to Ordon Woods (area just north of Ordon Village where Coro the Lantern Salesman is at) to get a Sky Character (your map is marked with its location). Move the statue into the circular hole in the ground on the other side of the tree. A short cinema will show a nearby rock and move across the shadow and up to some branches.

Transform into a wolf, stand on the rock and face towards the statue to make Midna's icon appear. Use her to jump to an upper area that leads just above the Faron Woods with a hidden chest.

Heart Piece #41

Tp heart 41.png

Location: City in the Sky

In the large cylinder shaped room with the Big Baba at the bottom, there's a chest you can see on your map on the 2nd floor. Get to that level in that room, then work your way across the skinny platforms with the Baba Serpent. Once you get to the far east (Wii) / west (GCN) side, you'll see the chest is directly ahead on your map.

Shoot the two Keese that are hanging from the ceiling of the alcove, then grab onto the wall on your right (Wii) / left (GCN). Hold the Analog Stick to the side to make Link steadily work his way across. At the end, drop.

Heart Piece #42

Tp heart 42.png

Location: City in the Sky

In the southern portion of the dungeon on the 3rd floor, there's an outdoors area where a ton of Peahats form a "V" shape. Using the Double Clawshots, go along them and follow them to the south. It'll take you to an otherwise unreachable platform with a large chest.

Heart Piece #43

Tp heart 43.png

Location: Kakariko Gorge

In the far east (Wii) / west (GCN) side of Kakariko Gorge there's a large rock formation that is out in the abyss. Against the side is a target. Once you have the Double Clawshots, you'll be able to grapple back and forth to get to some lower vines. Grab on and climb around the other side to find a platform with a large chest.

Heart Piece #44

Tp heart 44.png

Location: Palace of Twilight

In the west (Wii) / east (GCN) wing of the dungeon there's four "waterfalls" of black fog. In one of them (which you can see on your map) is an alcove with a chest. Place the Sol near the "fogfall" to make it temporarily disappear. Clawshot the target against the wall to get to an upper area with the large chest. Alternatively, you can return here when you have infused the Master Sword with Light.

Heart Piece #45

Tp heart 45.png

Location: Palace of Twilight

In the first room of the east (Wii) / west (GCN) wing of the dungeon there's a dark orb to the far north on the lower level. By exposing it to the light of the Sol, it will activate two platforms, each one taking you to the alcove on that side of the room. The western (Wii) / eastern (GCN) platform takes you to the alcove with a large chest containing a Piece of Heart. Alternatively, you can return to this room when you have infused the Master Sword with Light.
