Pieces of Heart Checklist

The following is a list of all of the Pieces of Heart in Ocarina of Time, with a description of how to get each one, and whether you need to be a child or adult to get it, and whether you need to get it during the day or at night.

List of Pieces of Heart

  1. (Child/Night) Hyrule Castle Town - At night, find the white dog by the empty stall in the corner of the market near the entrance to town, and walk up to it to get it to follow you. Take it to the back alley and show it to the woman in one of the houses to get a piece of heart.
  2. (Child/Day or Night) Lon Lon Ranch - In the silo, pull the crate away from the corner of the wall and crawl through the hole for a piece of heart.
  3. (Child/Day or Night) Lost Woods - Play the song game three times with the two Skull Kids after taking the first right in the Lost Woods.
  4. (Child/Day or Night) Lost Woods - After learning Saria's Song, return to the Lost Woods entrance and take a left to find a skull kid on a stump. Play Saria's Song on the short stump and the kid gives you a piece of heart.
  5. (Adult or Child/Night) Kakariko Graveyard - Get behind the last row of graves in the graveyard and look at the left-hand group. Pull back the grave second from the right. Inside, play Sun's Song to freeze the ReDead and kill it, then stand on the platform and play Sun's Song again to reveal a chest containing a piece of heart.
  6. (Child/Night) Kakariko Graveyard - Play Dampé's Heart-Pounding Gravedigging tour. Make sure that he is standing on the edge of a dirt pile when you ask him to dig. Don't ask him to dig the same spot twice in a row; wait for him to go all the way around before asking him to dig at that spot again. The longer you play, the more likely it becomes that he will dig up the piece of heart.
  7. (Child/Day or Night) Goron Village - Light the torches on the bottom floor of the Goron Village with fire taken from Darunia's room. The Goron Jar will open and start to spin. Pick a nearby bomb flower and throw it into the jar when it is near the ledge. If it stops with the happy face facing the camera, a piece of heart and 25 rupees will pop out.
  8. (Adult or Child/Day or Night) Death Mountain Trail - There is a piece of heart above the entrance to Dodongo's Cavern. You can reach it as a child by going to the bomb flower that you can throw at the Dodongo's Cavern entrance to break it open. Throw the bomb flower somewhere, then stand with your back facing the short piece of fence, but turn slightly to the right. Then hold Z (or L in Ocarina 3D), then do a backflip to land on the ground above the cavern entrance. You get hurt, but the piece of heart here replenishes your health. As an adult, if you planted a Magic Bean outside of Dodongo's Cavern as a child, you can ride the Magic Bean platform to reach it.
  9. (Adult or Child/Day or Night) Kakariko Village - As a child, go up to the top of Death Mountain Trail after you get the Bomb Bag. The owl will be there. Talk to it to get a ride back to Kakariko Village. When the owl deposits you on the roof of a house in the village, turn right. The roof of the Cucco pen is below. Land on it and go into the crack in the wall to find a caged cow next to a piece of heart. As an adult, you can use the Hookshot to reach the roof of this house (the house that Anju the cucco girl stands next to during the day).
  10. (Adult or Child/Day or Night) Zora's River - There is a Cucco near the entrance to the river. Carry it with you until you reach the area just before the blue Tektites. Go up the angled ramp, then jump toward the ledge that points toward the pillar with the piece of heart on it. You will have to throw the cucco when you get close to the ledge so that you can grab hold of the ledge with your hands. Climb up, then get the piece of heart from the pillar.
  11. (Adult or Child/Day or Night) Zora's River - There is a piece of heart on a platform near the waterfall entrance to Zora's Domain, reachable either with a Cucco or the Hover Boots.

A chest appears containing a piece of heart.
