complete list of their locations.

HCP = Heart Container Piece, AL=Adult Link only, YL=Young Link

- Hyrule Field - Look for fenced-in grass on the path to Lake
Hylia. Throw a bomb into the center of the grass to unveil a
hole. Defeat the bush guy and he'll sell you a HCP for 10 rupees.

- Hyrule Field - Exit the Market as adult Link and turn right.
Keep walking in that general direction and you'll see a lone brown
tree. Bomb the base of it, fall down the hole, then use the Iron
Boots to sink to the bottom of the pond and get the HCP

- Market - YL - In a house in the back alley at night you'll find
a woman who lost her dog. Go outside and find the dog (Look for a
white one in the corner near the Bazaar). Give the dog back to
the woman and she'll give you a HCP.

- Market - YL - Go into the market at night to play the treasure
chest game. If you make it to the end you'll get a HCP. If you
have the Lens of Truth you can cheat by looking into the chests
with it.

- Market - YL - After showing Zelda's letter to the guard in
Kakariko Village, return to the market and the Bombchu Bowling
game will be open. Play to win a prize. Randomly the prize will
be a HCP.

- Lost Woods - YL - Enter the Lost Woods and go left from the
first room. Stand on the short stump and play Saria's Song and
the Skull Kid on the big stump will give you a HCP.

- Lost Woods - YL - Go right from the first room in the Lost Woods
and climb down the ladder to find two skull kids. They'll want
you to play songs with them. Repeat whatever they play and after
a few songs they'll give you a HCP.

- Lon Lon Ranch - YL - In the far southeast corner of the ranch is
a stone tower. Go inside and there is a bunch of crates. Move
them around to find a hole in the wall and crawl through to get
the HCP.

- Kakariko Village - YL - Climb to the top of Death Mountain and
talk to the owl. Have him take you back down to the village.
He'll place you on a roof. Drop down off the roof on to the roof
of the Chicken Women's pen and then walk into the hole on the side
of the house there. Find the HCP next to a cow.

- Kakariko Graveyard - YL - First in the day time watch the kid
walk around the graveyard. Make note of all the places he stops
and waves his stick. Then go outside and wait on the steps of
Kakariko village until the skeletons FIRST pop out, then go
immediately into town. Talk to the gravedigger and he'll charge
you 10 rupees a dig. Have him dig in all the places where the kid
waved his stick and one of them should be the HCP.

- Kakariko Village - Method 1(AL): Use your hookshot to get on top
of the house with the man sitting on top of it. He'll give you a
HCP. (NOTE: Some people have written me saying you need the
longshot to do this. That simply isn't true. Just go into the
potion shop and out the back door. Stand on the very corner of
the platform you are now and you can just barely get your hookshot
to hit the bottom of the roof and get onto it.) Method 2(YL): Get
a chicken and make your way up the construction site beams by
throwing it up and then climbing up. Then you can float over to
the roof from there and talk to the man. Method 3(YL): Climb to
the top of that very high lookout tower, then face the
construction sight and hold Z, then tap left+A to hop over to the
fence where you can then climb up onto the roof.

- Kakariko Village - The prize for 50 gold skulltula tokens is a
HCP. (See section 10).

- Kakariko Graveyard - Pull on the middle gravestone in the second
row (4th from the right) to reveal a hole. Fall down, kill the
mummy, and play the Song of the Sun to get a HCP.

- Kakariko Graveyard - AL - Pull the gravestone with flowers in
front of it on the left side of the graveyard to find the
gravedigger's tomb. Talk to him and race him through the cavern.
Then play the Song of Time to get rid of the blue stone blocking
your exit. Follow the path and you'll end up inside the windmill.
Jump on the rotating platforms to get to the HCP.

- Kakariko Graveyard - AL - If you get 1 minute or less in the
race against the gravedigger you'll get a HCP. Use the longshot
on one of the torches in the last room for a shortcut, although
it's possible to do it without this (I did it without).

- Kakariko Graveyard - BL - Plant a Magic Bean in the graveyard as
young Link. Return as adult Link and ride the magic leaf platform
up to get the HCP.

- Goron City - YL - Light up all the torches on the ground level
of Goron's City to make the giant Urn in the middle spin. Go up a
level and throw a bomb into the Urn to make it drop prizes.
Eventually, it will drop a HCP, depending on what face on the Urn
is facing forward when it stops spinning.

- Dodonogo's Cavern - BL - As young Link plant a Magic Bean at the
entrance to Dodonogo's Cavern. Return as Adult Link and ride the
magic leaf platform up, then jump off of it to get the HCP above
the entrance. (NOTE: It's also been said you can get this as
young Link by using a side hop from the ledge above where the bomb
plant is. A side hop is when you hold Z then push B+left or

- Death Mountain Crater - If you enter Death Mountain Crater from
the cave at the peak of Death Mountain, go straight forward on the
large platform you are on until you come to the edge. Slowly walk
over the edge. If you walked slowly enough you'll start to climb
down the face of the cliff. There's a hole halfway down with a
HCP in it. You can also get to this one using the magic leaf
platform near the entrance to the Fire Temple if you've planted a
bean there.

- Death Mountain Crater - BL - Have young Link plant a magic bean
at the entrance to the Fire Temple (use the Bolero of Fire to warp
there). Then return as adult Link and use it to ride up to the
HCP at the peak of one of the small volcanoes

- Zora's River - YL - About halfway up the river is a bunch of
frogs. Play 5 songs for them then take your ocarina out again.
They'll ask you to help them get bugs. Play the ocarina in the
correct pattern to get a HCP. The correct pattern is
A,CL,CR,CD,CL,CR,CD,A,CD,A,CD,CR,CL,A. (Note: They'll also give
you 50 rupees each time you play a different song, so you might
want to go back and buy some Magic Beans with them so you don't
waste their money by having your rupee limit full).

- Zora's River - YL - If you play the Song of Storms for the frogs
from the previous one you'll get a HCP.

- Zora's River - YL - There's a chicken near the beginning of the
river. Pick it up and take it along with you. You'll see the HCP
on a small raised platform. Next to it is a high ledge on the
west bank of the river. Now there's two methods to get this.
Method 1: Jump toward the part of the ledge closest to the wall
and just as you hit it throw the chicken with A and hold your
control stick toward the ledge and you should grab the ledge.
Climb up and jump to the small platform to claim your HCP. Method
2: Keep going with the chicken, throw it up on the platform in
front of you. Then on to the next platform to your right. Now
face downstream and you should see a very narrow ledge to your
left. Use the chicken to float over to it. Lose the chicken and
climb up the ladder there. Grab another chicken that's up there
and float down to the HCP.

- Zora's River - YL - Bring the chicken with you until you reach
the big waterfall. In this last area you'll see a HCP on a ledge.
Jump to it with the chicken.

- Zora's Domain -YL - Go to King Zora's room and light a Deku
stick with a torch that's there. RUN down and light a torch at
the bottom of the steps, then run around and light the one in
front of the shop, then across the water to the one by the circle
of stones, then hugging the wall run behind the waterfall and
light both of those torches. If you manage to get them all you'll
get a HCP that will appear in a chest behind the waterfall.

- Lake Hylia - BL - Plant a Magic Bean as young Link near the Lake
Hylia lab. Return as adult Link and ride the Magic Leaf platform
up to on top of the lab, then climb the ladder there to get a HCP.

and get it.

- Gerudo Valley - Method 1(YL): Use a chicken on the bridge to
float down to a platform that's to the right of the bridge and on
the opposite bank (from where you enter the valley). Then you can
walk up the ledge to the point closest to the water fall and jump
behind it, then climb a ladder to the HCP. Method 2(BL): Use the
chicken as young Link as in method 1 and float down to the
platform. Then plant a magic bean in the soil by the cow. Then
return as adult Link and ride the magic leaf platform to the HCP.
