The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD

Heart Medal

Vincent Lau

(1 of 2) Not to be confused with the Life Medal!

Not to be confused with the Life Medal! (left), This medal makes recovery hearts more likely to appear. (right)

The Heart Medal increases the chance of finding recovery hearts after defeating enemies, cutting down grass, etc.

If you often find yourself taking a beating, you could consider keeping one or two of these in your item pouch.

That said, unless you’re also carrying the Cursed Medal (which prevents you opening your pouch), it’s more reliable to have Bottles with potions inside instead.

Where to Find

There are two Heart Medals in the game.

  1. Inside Goddess Chest 20, accessible once you unlock Lanayru Desert.

  2. Inside Goddess Chest 21, which requires the Water Dragon’s Scale to reach.

You are Link, a resident of Skyloft–a floating village in the vast sky. For ages, you’ve been training at the Knight Academy and, today, the day of your graduation has arrived. While your life thus far has been peaceful, soon nothing will be the same again, when your beloved friend, Zelda, is stolen from you…

Our strategy guide for The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword (HD) contains all the necessary knowledge to search for and rescue Zelda, such as a full walkthrough with detailed maps. Plus every hero needs a rest; if you want to grab all the collectables and fix other people’s problems (sidequests), we can help you with that too!

Newly added:

  • Revised and re-structured the walkthrough to make it more accessible.
  • Added dozens of useful maps.
