Heart Piece Locations [Hrtpcs]

There are 36 Heart Pieces located within the game, and when combined with the
Heart Containers from bosses, will make up a total of 20 hearts for your health.
Every four pieces will assemble a new Heart for your health.  There will be a
check-box next to the Heart Piece number.  If you print this FAQ out, use the
check-box to mark what Pieces you've gotten. (There are check-marks for the
other sections as well.)

---------------
Piece of Heart #1: [ ]

Location: Lost Woods
Time: Past
Requirements: An Ocarina
How to get: While heading to the Sacred Forest Meadow, you'll come across an
area with a target.  Drop down to where the target is, and in a corner are two 
Skull Kids with flutes.  Stand on the stump and pull out either Ocarina while 
facing them and they'll want you to play a little game.  You must play the
notes they play.  If you successfully do it three times, they'll give you a
Piece of Heart.
---------------
Piece of Heart #2: [ ]

Location: Hyrule Market
Time: Past
Requirements: None
How to get: Make sure it's night time. (Use the castle grounds to make time
pass - you can't enter town from Hyrule Field when it's night.) Head into one 
of the houses in the Back Alley to see an obese woman in a white and blue 
striped shirt.  She claims her dog is loose and wants her dog back.  Head back 
into the main Market, and look for the white dog near the house with the man 
looking out his window.  The dog will follow you.  Bring the dog back to the 
woman and she'll give you this Piece.
---------------
Piece of Heart #3: [ ]

Location: Lon Lon Ranch
Time: Past
Requirements: None
How to get: Head into the silo at the back of the ranch and you'll see a bunch
of crates hiding a crawlspace.  Move the crates in such a way so you can reach 
the crawlspace.  It's easy enough to figure it out by yourself.  Anyway, behind 
the crawlspace lies the Piece of Heart.
---------------
Piece of Heart #4: [ ]

Location: Lost Woods
Time: Past
Requirements: An Ocarina with Saria's Song
How to get: Head left from the entrance of Lost Woods to find a Skull Kid with
a flute.  Stand on the stump in front of him, whip out any Ocarina you might 
have, and play Saria's Song.  He'll give you this Piece in return.
---------------
Piece of Heart #5: [ ]

Location: Kakariko Graveyard
Time: Past
Requirements: A bunch of Rupees
How to get: Making sure night has just arrived (like, right after you hear the
howl of a wolf) Dampe will be out wandering the graveyard. For 10 Rupees, he'll
dig where he stands. Of course, talk to him while he's over a section of dirt 
so he can dig. Let him dig once on each section of dirt until he digs up the 
Piece of Heart.  The location of the Piece is random, which is why I can't tell 
you which section the piece is in.
---------------
Piece of Heart #6: [ ]

Location: Kakariko Graveyard
Time: Past
Requirements: An Ocarina with the Sun's Song
How to get: Facing away from the Royal Family's Tomb, pull the second left

Song on the steps to reveal a chest with this piece.
---------------
Piece of Heart #7: [ ]

Time: Past
Requirements: Possibly some bombs, but you can get bombs from bomb flowers

on the happy face, a Piece of Heart and a lot of Rupees will pop out.
---------------
Piece of Heart #8: [ ]

Location: Death Mountain Crater
Time: Past
Requirements: Hylian Shield, so you don't lose the Deku Shield.
How to get: Step off the north wall slowly so you'll grab the climbable wall.

is a different story.
---------------

Time: Past
Requirements: Advanced Spin Attack
How to get: After getting the Advanced Spin Attack, talk to the owl and agree
to let him carry you back to Kakariko Village.  He'll drop you on the roof of a

this Piece inside a cage.

---------------
Piece of Heart #11: [ ]

building.  In here you have to use Bombchus to make them scurry to the holes. 
(See items on what these items are.) You can play this before even getting the 
items. Winning gets you a random prize.  Among them are: Purple Rupee, Bombs, 
Bombchus, Bomb Bag Upgrade, and this Piece of Heart.  Play until you get the 
piece. (Look in the sixth section of the walkthrough for fool-proof tips.  Yes, 
I really mean fool-proof.)
