5) In Depth Piece of Heart Guide

-----CHILD LINK-----
LOCATION: Graveyard
To play Dampe's Gravedigging Tour, you must have at least 10 rupees. It helps 
to have about 99 when doing this. He only appears at the beginning of night, 
so wait for it. Talk to him in front of a dirt spot for him to dig. It takes 
a good while till the heart piece will pop up, be patient.

LOCATION: Graveyard
In one grave in the graveyard, another hole appears. It should be one of the 
graves on the top right near the composer's graves, possibly the second to 
last one. Hop in and kill the re-dead. Then play the Sun's Song. You will see 
a chest appear. Open it and claim your prize!

LOCATION: Goron City
First of all light all of the torches by using a Deku stick to light them all 
around the pot. The fire is in Darunia's chamber. After all of them are lit, 
the pot will spin. Head up to the same floor as the top of the pot and use 
the nearby bomb flower from the stairs. Throw the bomb flower inside the pot. 
It will spin around and give you rupees, hearts, or if you get the smiley 
face part of the pot, a heart piece. Keep tossing that bomb.

LOCATION: Hyrule Market
Head to the Bombchu Bowling alley. To win you must place your bombchu to head 
to the hole and blow up the wall. The first one is simple. Just get right in 
front of it and make sure the spike has passed by. After the first wall is 
gone, it gets tougher. You'll have to aim at the wall to maneuver is, or you 
could take a chance and place it right in front of it again dodging the 
chicken. The last one is where you have to use the wall to maneuver it 
inside. Place it near the corner. Hopefully you'll get it.

LOCATION: Hyrule Market (Night)
In order to bring the Pooch lady's dog back to her house located in the 
Alley, you'll have to find the right one. There are a lot of them out there, 
so don't come close to them unless you are sure that it is the right dog. The 
right dog is a white dog located behind the stand where the crowd of people 
is during the day. Bring her dog back to her and she'll grant you a piece of 

LOCATION: Hyrule Market (Night)
In order to win the treasure box game located in the town market, you have to 
pick the right chest out of 2 possible choices. One has a key to the next 
room while the other has rupees. Make it to the end and you will get the 
heart piece. This is easiest with the lens of truth, since you can see what 
is inside the chest and won't have to keep guessing.

LOCATION: Hyrule Field
You'll need the stone of agony. Simply place a bomb near where it rumbles and 
hopefully it will reveal itself. It should be right in the middle of the four 
fences leading to Lake Hylia. Pay the deku scrub only a measly 10 rupees to 
get the Piece of Heart. What a deal.

LOCATION: Kakariko Village
You'll need 50 Skulltulas in order to gain this Piece of Heart. Look in 
dungeons and also in towns at night. Running into trees also reveals a few 

LOCATION: Kakariko Village
After gaining the magic meter from the Great Fairy at the top of Death 
Mountain, the Owl awaits you to fly you down. Accept his offer and he will 
plant you on the roof of the house by the chicken lady. DO NOT JUMP OFF! Head 
towards the left side of the house by the chicken coop, and inch towards the 
edge. Drop on the roof of the chicken coop and head through the crack to gain 
your reward. The owl will appear again or you could get the hookshot later.

LOCATION: Lake Hylia
Head towards a building near the left of the lake. Inside you can fish. Press 
B to cast and A to reel. Also use the control stick to lure the fish towards 
it. The 10-pounder is near the logs to the left. It's on the farthest one to 
the right. Cast your rod towards the fish. Lure it and once it's hooked Pull 
back on the control stick and hold A at the same time. If you catch him, you 
will get a Piece of Heart, simply weigh the fish at the desk.

LOCATION: Lon Lon Ranch
Head to the storage shed at the back of the ranch. Move the boxes out of the 
way to reveal the hole. It's in the bottom left corner. Crawl through and you 
will see the piece of heart.

LOCATION: Lost Woods
After learning Saria's song, head to the left of the entrance to skull woods. 
Stand on the stump and play Saria's song. The skull kid will be overjoyed and 
present to you a heart piece.

LOCATION: Lost Woods
When you reach the part of the lost woods to the right of the entrance, jump 
down and stand on the stump. 2 Skull Kids will appear. Simply follow the 
melody they give for 3 stanzas and you will gain a piece of heart.

LOCATION: Zora's Domain
To light all the torches you need to do the following. Start at King Zora's 
throne. Use the torch and head down the stairs with a lit deku stick. Light 
the first torch then put your stick away. Take it back out and head down. One 
is by the shop, run by and light it. Head to the on in the middle of the 
shallow water and light it. Then head behind the waterfall and light the two 
in the alcove. A chest will appear and you will gain your prize.

LOCATION: Zora's River
About halfway in the river is a log lying in the water. Stand on the stump 
and pull out your ocarina. Play all 5 gray note songs besides the Song of 
Storms. This means you need Zelda's Lullaby, Saria's Song, Epona's Song, 
Sun's Song, and The Song of Time. All 5 will grow. Now you must play a game. 
Match the notes with the frogs and play whichever has a butterfly sticking 
out of it. Or, just press A-Left-Right-Down-Left-Right-Down-A-Down-A-Down-
Right-Left-A. Play it FAST. Eventually you will gain the piece of heart.

LOCATION: Zora's River
Grab the chicken at the beginning. Jump to the ledge before the heart piece. 
You might have to throw the chicken up there to climb up the ledge. Hopefully 
the chicken landed there too. Jump to the center platform. Don't let go of 
the chicken, you can still get one more piece of heart.

LOCATION: Zora's River
With the chicken head to the end. Where you stand to play the ocarina, head 
farther left. Look behind you to see the ledge. Jump with the chicken and 
it's yours. Now throw the chicken in the river, muhahahah!

LOCATION: Zora's River
After learning the Song of Storms head to the frogs. Play it and you get a 
heart piece. Simple.

-----ADULT LINK-----
LOCATION: Death Mountain Crater
If you head up the platforms around the crater, head towards a platform that 
is lined up with the entrance to the Fire Temple, or you could just look for 
the big climbable wall behind the warp point. Slowly walk to the edge and you 
will start to climb on the wall. Climb down and up to the hole in the wall 
and grab this piece of heart.

LOCATION: Death Mountain Crater
First of all you must plant the magic bean plant for you to get this. It is 
located right next to the warp pad to the crater. Just play the Bolero of 
Fire and Young Link can plant the bean and get out of there. After the bean 
is planted simply, warp as an adult and ride that sucker to the top. Jump off 
and grab your piece of heart.

LOCATION: Death Mountain Trail
Once again, you'll need to plant the bean for this one. Its soil is right 
next to the entrance to Dodongo Caverns. Come back as an adult and jump off 
to the roof of the entrance. Your piece of heart is sitting there, taunting 
you. So grab it and go.

LOCATION: Desert Colossus
Once again, warp here as a child and plant a magic bean plant. Warp back as 
an adult and ride the bean plant. When you get to the stone arc, be ready to 
jump because this thing goes really fast. Once on top grab it and continue 

LOCATION: Gerudo Valley
Jump to the river below you. That's right, the river that is located miles 
down. Swim upstream till you get past the waterfall. You should see a ladder. 
Climb up and claim your prize for the suicidal dive.

LOCATION: Gerudo Valley
You'll need the longshot for this one. Head to the right of the bridge on the 
side that leads to Hyrule. You should see a platform with a boulder jutting 
out. Jump down and look straight across. Longshot the box and break it open 
to reveal a piece of heart.

LOCATION: Gerudo Fortress
Once you have your membership card, head to the right of fortress to see a 
trail leading up. With Epona, head up and play the archery game. You need to 
score just 1000 for the Piece of Heart. If you want the quiver you'll need 
1500. You will only get 20 shots. Pots are worth 100 and bull's-eyes are 
worth 100 as well. Aim for the pots first, then go for the targets. It's not 
hard getting this, just practice some.

LOCATION: Gerudo Fortress 
While you are on the highest place you can go, I'm sure you've noticed the 
chest on the roof of the fortress. Longshot the chest and open it up to claim 
a heart piece.

LOCATION: Graveyard
Open the grave on the left side and jump down the hole. You will need 
longshot for this. Race him like normal, dodging his flames. I go hit by one 
flame and still made it in 58 seconds.  You have to get below 1:00 or 1:00. 
When you get to the part at the end with the big pit in the middle, usually 
you are suppose to go around, you'll never get 1:00 like that. Longshot the 
torches at the start of this room and you'll be more than likely guaranteed 
this piece of heart.

LOCATION: Graveyard
Once again have Link plant the magic bean here by the left side of graves. As 
an adult, come back and roll to break open the box and gain another piece of 

LOCATION: Hyrule Field
Head to the tree between Hyrule and Gerudo Fortress. It's near a river. There 
should be a lonely tree just sitting there. Head towards it and bash the 
ground with the hammer or bomb it. Inside take care of Mr.Hoppy with 2 arrows 
and put on your Iron Boots and Zora Tunics or have the Gold Scale. Dive down 
and retrieve your prize.
LOCATION: Ice Cavern
This is pretty simple. Just grab some blue fire and use it on the red ice 
that contains the heart piece. It's right next to the blue fire.

LOCATION: Kakariko Village
Using your longshot, longshot to the roof with the man on it. You might be 
required to longshot to one roof and then to him. He'll be ecstatic to see 
you and gives you a heart piece. 
*You could also get this with Young Link. Simply climb the large tower near 
the base of Death Mountain. Position yourself so you have your left side 
toward the roof with the man. Hold L and jump sideways and you should land on 
the fence connecting to the building. Carefully crawl across and you'll get 
the piece of heart.
**You can also just jump on the sort fence near the entrance to the Widmill. 
From there, your hookshot should reach.
***Thanks to TharkasDB and Rob Louie for these tips.

LOCATION: Kakariko Village
Once you emerge from Dampe's race, jump to one of the two spinning platforms. 
Wait till you get close to the heart piece and jump off. Then grab your 
newfound piece of heart.

LOCATION: Lake Hylia
After catching a 20-pounder in the fishing game, head to the scientist's lab 
and get in the water. Dive to the bottom then speak to him to gain another 
piece of heart.
LOCATION: Lake Hylia
Yet again, Young Link is required to plant a bean next to the lab. As an 
adult come back and jump off onto the roof. Climb the ladder and grab the 
piece of heart on the balcony.
*You can also just play the scarecrow's song for this one. Play it and 
longshot up to get it and not bother planting the magic bean.
**Thanks to Andrew Jansen for this tip.

LOCATION: Zora's Fountain
Head to the other path of icebergs in front of you instead of turning left. 
They are harder to get on, but worth it. Jump at the right time and ride it 
to the iceberg with the piece of heart on it. Grab it and go.

LOCATION: Zora's Fountain
With your Iron boots and Zora tunic, head to the bottom of the lake. You'll 
notice an arrangement of rupees and a piece of heart in the middle. Grab the 
heart piece and some rupees for future purchases.


6) Master's Quest Heart Piece

There is one heart piece placed differently in Master's Quest. 

LOCATION: Ice Cavern
OBTAINED BY: There is a piece of heart trapped in glass. You have to use a
