Ocarina of Time 3D Heart Pieces Guide

Normal Quest | Master Quest

Normal Quest

The following guide covers every piece of heart found in the normal quest of the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D. It takes 4 pieces to create 1 extra heart container. There are a total of 36 pieces, for a total of 8 extra heart containers. They are numbered in the order I found them during my playthrough.

The following pieces of heart can be acquired as kid Link in the past.

Lost Woods
1) When you enter the Lost Woods, head right and climb down the ladder. If you look around, you will find a couple stumps. Climb on top of the first stump and two Skull Kids will appear. They want you to play Ocarina with them. They will ask you to follow along with them and start off playing a few notes. Play the same notes they play and then they will play the same notes and add one to it. Just keep playing the same notes that the Skull Kids do. After a few rounds, the Skull Kids give you a rupee. They will then ask you if you would like to continue playing along with them. Accept and the whole process starts over again. Repeat this process a few times and you will win a piece of heart.

2) After you have learned Saria's song, head back to the beginning of the Lost Woods. If you exit and re-enter, go down the path to the left and you will see a Skull Kid standing on a stump along with an empty stump. Go get on the empty stump and play Saria's song. The Skull Kid will say that you know Saria's song and that you should be friends. After the dialog, the Skull Kid gives you a piece of heart.

Death Mountain
3) Climb all the way to the top of Death Mountain. You will find an Owl sitting on a sign. Talk to the Owl and use him to take you down the mountain. You will appear on top of a house.  Turn right and fall off the house onto a small platform. Enter the back of the house and you will find a piece of heart.

Goron City
4) Go all the way to the bottom floor and go to where Darunia is located. You will see some lit torches. Take out a Deku Stick and light it. Now run around and light all the torches on the bottom floor. This will cause the giant urn in the center to start rotating. Head up to the second floor and throw either a bomb flower or a bomb into the urn. If you can get it to blow up when and the face pointing towards you is smiling, you will receive some rupees and a piece of heart.

Lon Lon Ranch
5) Go all the way to the back of the ranch and you will see a lone building. Go inside of it and you will see some crates and cows. Arrange the crates so that you can pull the one in the back of the right side down. This exposes a pathway into the wall. Go inside it and you will find a heart piece.

Path to Zora's Domain
6) On the way to Zora's Domain, you will notice that a heart piece is sitting on a ledge in the middle of the water. You must use the cucco from the beginning of the path to fly from platform to platform in order to reach the heart piece. When you get to where you have to fly to the ledge right before the heart piece, you must fly to the ledge and let go of the cucco at the right moment in order to grab the ledge and make the cucco land on top of it. After you do this, just fly to the heart piece.

7) Continue carrying the cucco from the last heart piece and you will come to a spot (pass a small bridge) where the path has ledges that kind of interweave into one another. If you look to the left, you will notice a piece of heart. Fly to it with the cucco.

22) Go to near the halfway point of this area. You will see some tree branches in the water. Climb on top of the one connecting to the land and follow it to the end. You will get a message saying that frogs are watching you. Play the Song of Storms and the frogs will give you a piece of heart.

23) (At the same spot as the last heart piece) play all of the non-teleporting songs to make the frogs grow larger. After they are all large, take out your ocarina and they will ask you to play a series of notes in order to make them eat some butterflies. The pattern of notes is: L X Y R X Y R L R L R Y X L and after playing them, the frogs will give you a piece of heart.

Zora's Domain
8) Go to where King Zora is sitting. You will notice two torches. Take out a Deku Stick and light it with the torch. Run down the stairs and light that torch. This one will stay lit. Now get out a new Deku Stick and light it with the torch. Run down the stairs and you will find a torch near the item shop. Light it and continue running into the water to find another unlit torch near a circle of rocks. Light it and run behind the waterfall making sure to stay near the wall.
