In The Legend of Zelda series, Heart Containers increase Link's maximum health by one unit. In The Legend of Zelda, they are scattered around Hyrule or acquired after defeating a dungeon boss. In Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, they can only be acquired in secret places for a health upgrade. In The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and subsequent installments, like in The Legend of Zelda, Heart Containers are acquired by defeating a dungeon boss. Alternatively, one can be formed by collecting four Pieces of Heart (five in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess) scattered in various area.
In the Super Smash Bros. series
Whenever a Heart Container appears, it drifts to the ground slowly. In Super Smash Bros., Heart Containers heal all damage, returning the fighter's damage level to 0%. Their design is taken from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. In Super Smash Bros. Melee onward, however, the Heart Container's effect has been changed to only healing up to 100% of damage. However, the three Heart Containers seen in All-Star still recover all damage. In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the design of the Heart Container has been changed so as to reflect their appearance in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, and in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Heart Containers are designed after their appearance in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.
In Super Smash Bros. and Super Smash Bros. Melee, a Heart Container cannot be picked up until it touches the ground. In Super Smash Bros. Brawl and later installments, fighters can grab a Heart Container in mid-air.
