Water of Life
The Legend of Zelda
"Drink this and all of Link's LIFE hearts will turn red. Red water turns blue when Link sips it. Drink the blue water and that's the last of the water."
The Water of Life is one of two Bottle items found in The Legend of Zelda. This potion will restore Link's health completely if he drinks it. The Life Potion can be bought from the Old Woman at any of the Potion Shops across Hyrule. These shops will only open after Link has, firstly, collected the Letter from the Old Man, and secondly he has shown the Letter to the Old Woman. From now on, Link can buy the Life Potion at these shops for the price of 40 Rupees.
The Adventure of Link
In Link's second adventure, the Water of Life is not a useable item, but a sidequest collectible needed to cure an old woman's daughter in the Harbor Town of Mido. With the water in hand, Link is granted access to the Wise Man that bestows the Fairy Spell.
Game & Watch
The Water of Life can be randomly obtained by defeating a Moblin. If Link runs out of hearts while he has the Water of Life in his inventory, he is revived with five hearts.
