Heart Piece Location Guide - Zelda: Twilight Princess


Heart Piece

Heart piece collecting has been in every Zelda game I can think of. Collecting 5 heart pieces will give you an extra heart. And who doesn't like being harder to kill?

Some of them are blatantly obvious, while others will take you into dark areas of Hyrule you wouldn't have known existed otherwise.

While all the locations are listed in the main guide, it requires you play through using the guide. Here I'll list all the locations again, along with any requirements for reaching it.

In this guide, the pieces are split up into sections of Hyrule (like the Poe souls), but the heart piece number is the same as in the main guide.

Remember when calculating your heart pieces and remaining hearts that you get a full heart container at the end of every temple, except for Hyrule Castle. That's 8 hearts. AND don't forget the 3 you started the game with. That's 11 hearts that don't come from pieces.

Ordona Province


H01

H01:
Items required: None
Location: Faron Woods
Enter the swamp at the north end of the woods, before the forest temple. There is a cave at the northwest end. Inside, light the two torches to reveal a chest. If you do this after the poison fog, you'll need to use your lantern to stave off the fog in order to enter the cave.


H06

H06:
Items required: None
Location: Ordon Village
In Ordon Village, go to the ranch at the south end. Talk to Fado while on Epona. He'll ask you to herd his goats into the barn. The time to beat is 1:30, I think. I've never completed it over that and I always get the heart piece.


H36

H36:
Items required: Dominion Rod
Location: Faron Woods
In the area of the lantern salesman, there are some bobmable rocks. Blow them up to reveal a passage that leads to a stone sentinel where you get a character for the Sky Book. Use the Dominion Rod to move the statue in the hole in the ground, as shown. Transform into a wolf and use Midna to leap to the ledge with the heart piece.

Faron Province


H16

H16:
Items required: Bombs
Location: Sacred Grove
After obtaining the master sword, return to the place you fought Skullkid. There is a bombable rock in that area. Blow it up and use wolf link to dig under it. Defeat all the enemies to make a chest appear.


H04

H04:
Items required: Gale Boomerang
Location: Hyrule Field
By the south end of the bridge in the middle of the field is a tree. Look up in the tree to see the heart piece.

Eldin Province


H05

H05:
Items required: Gale Boomerang
Location: Hyrule Field (south)
Near Kakariko Bridge, go up the cliff east. Look over the edge to see this piece precariously perched on a stone pillar.


H43

H43:
Items required: Double Clawshot
Location: Hyrule Field (south)
The same place as H05, use the clawshot target and grapple around to the east side of the southern pillar.


H21

H21:
Items required: Bombs, lantern
Location: Hyrule field (south)(lantern cave)
At the southern most point in the Eldin Province is a bombable rock up against the sheer cliff walls. Blow it up to reveal a cave. Use the map above to find the heart piece.


H09

H09:
Items required: Bow and Arrow
Location: Kakariko Village
After your Goron Mines adventure, return to Kakariko Village and seek out Talo at the highest point in the village (get a boost from the Goron below him). He'll ask for Bow lessons. Jump back down and find Malo near the spirit spring. Talk to him and accept the challenge. If you complete it with out using the Hawkeye, you get a heart piece.


H10

H10:
Items required: Bomb arrow, Gale Boomerang
Location: Kakariko Village
At the south end of the village beside the spirit spring are some bombable rocks on the cliff. Blow them up with a bomb arrow, then use the Gale Boomerang to get it down.


H11

H11:
Items required: Bombs, Iron Boots
Location: Kakariko Village
Below where H10 was, blow up the bombable rocks at ground level. Wonder the path behind them to come out at the spirit spring. Jump in an sink to the bottom with the boots. A chest at the north end is what you seek.


H20

H20:
Items required: None
Location: Death Mountain
On your way up Death Mountain (after Goron Mines), you'll meet a Goron that asks if you want a boost up. Say yes and hop on. Face east and grab onto the ledge above when he throws you. Walk the cliff around north till you come to a hole in the wall. Fall down the hole and open the chest.


H12

H12:
Items required: Bomb arrows
Location: Hyrule Field (north)
Take the northern exit out of Kakariko Village. As you exit the valley, there are some bombable rocks on the left side of the road. Blow them up and walk up the path behind them. Keep going up, then you'll drop down and jump over a gap. Climb the vines. Now this is very important, look across left; you'll see some vines and a bombable rock sitting on top of them. Use your bomb arrows to destroy the rock. Now go towards it and jump the gap, grabbing onto the vines. Once at the top, look left to see a chest down below. Carefully jump down to that platform and open the chest for another heart piece.


H28

H28:
Items Required: Master Sword
Location: Kakariko Village/Hyrule Field (north)
This is part of the Magic Armor sidequest. Donate 1000 Rupees to the Goron in Malo Mart, then talk to the Goron sitting outside the store. He'll ask you to transport some spring water. Say yes. When hauling the water, stay on the southern edge and follow the cliff around or else the Leevers will get you. Stop and put down the barrel when you come to the Bulblins to snipe them. After you deliver the water, the Goron rolls past and leaves a heart piece.


H37

H37:
Items Required: Dominion Rod
Location: Eldin Bridge
There is a stone sentinel at the north end of the bride (you had to move it to get a character for the Sky Book). Take control and walk it all the way to the southern end of the bridge. Place it in the gap on the west side as shown. Jump across and climb the ladder.


H38

H38:
Items required: Clawshot, Iron Boots
Location: Hyrule Field (north of Eldin Bridge)
Use the clawshot on the target above. Walk the cliff to a cave. The cave is much like Goron Mines. Jump off the end of the bridge and equip the Iron Boots in mid-air to be pulled to the wall. Do this two more times to reach the end. Light the two torches you land by for 100 rupees and open the other chest for a heart piece.


H39

H39:
Items required: Spinner, bombs
Location: Hyrule Field (north of Eldin Bridge)
Opposite the entrance to the Hidden Village near the rope bridge, you should notice a spinner track. Get on and ride it down to a small patch of grass. Dig in the center to find a secret area. Defeat all the Stalfos to win a heart piece.


H35

H35:
Items required: None
Location: Hidden Village
Go through the window of the second building in the west, then through another window in the back of the building to find the Cucco Leader. Talk to it (in wolf form) and play his game of tracking down all 20 cats. The positioning of the cats is pretty much the same as the Bulblins. There are a couple you may have problems with.

There is one at the second story inside the house that lead to the Cucco leader:


Cat

And one in the barn at the end of town that you have to jump to from another ledge (after grappling up to the balcony).

Once you talk to all 20, see the leader again. He tells you your prize is near Impaz house. Run up there for a heart piece.

Lanayru Province


H17

H17:
Items required: None
Location: Castle Town
In north east side of Castle Town is a priest. He asks you donate money “for the sake of Hyrule.” Give him 1000 rupees and you get a heart piece. (I guess helping you does help Hyrule. Heart pieces are expensive in that case X_x)


H27

H27:
Items required: Spinner
Location: Hyrule Field
At the east side of the field there are two paths. Go to the north end of the eastern path. Ride the spinner track on the east wall, jumping as the track ends. After a few jumps, you come to the platform with your prize.


H40

H40:
Items required: Bombs, ball and chain

Jump up on this ledge

Temples/dungeons/ruins

This section goes over every heart piece found within a temple or dungeon. Since some can be pretty far in, it would be a wise idea to get them on your way through the dungeon, so you don't have to go all the way back through later.

Get to the Peahat that merges the two, then turn and take the other path back.
