Ocarina of Time 3D Heart Piece Guide


This guide details all the hidden locations of Heart Pieces in Ocarina of Time 3D. Head to the region indicated in the description and follow the listed instructions. Make sure you look for the Heart Pieces during the specified time period - otherwise they won’t be available!

Heart Piece 1

Location: Hyrule Castle Market (Child)

Prerequisites: Nighttime

At night, weave your way through the dogs scampering around the Market. Try to avoid all of them except for the white-colored dog nearby the man looking out his window. If you get close to it you’ll get its attention and it will start following you around. Bring it to the Back Alley via the entrance nearest to the Treasure Chest game and head into the door directly in front of you. Talk to Mamamu Yan and she’ll thank you for returning her dog by giving you a Heart Piece.

Heart Piece 2

Location: Lon Lon Ranch (Child)

Prerequisites: None

Head across the ranch grounds to the tower on the far side. If you move the milk crates inside around so that the far corner of the room is exposed, you’ll be able to slip into a crawlspace inside of which is the Heart Piece.

Heart Piece 3

Location: Lost Woods (Child)

Prerequisites: Ocarina

From the entrance to the Lost Woods, head right to find the target shooting game. Climb down the ladder overlooking the grove here and approach the stump to the right. If you stand on the stump, a pair of Skull Kids will appear. Pull out your Ocarina and repeat the notes they play for you. If you survive three rounds of their game, each getting successively harder, they’ll give you a Heart Piece as a sign of friendship.

Heart Piece 4

Location: Lost Woods (Child)

Prerequisites: Saria’s Song

From the entrance to the Lost Woods, head left and climb onto the stump facing the lone Skull Kid. Play Saria’s Song for him to win his trust and a Heart Piece.


Heart Piece 5

Location: Kakariko Graveyard (Child)

Prerequisites: Nighttime between the hours of 18:00 and 21:00

Sometimes, when you play Dampe the gravekeeper’s Heart-Pounding Gravedigging Tour, he’ll unearth a Heart Piece. This is a totally random process so you’ll just have to keep trying until he finds one for you.


Heart Piece 6

Location: Kakariko Graveyard

Prerequisites: Sun’s Song

From the Royal Family’s Tomb, head to the left and pull the second gravestone on the left to reveal a hidden tomb. Once inside, kill the Redead, approach the altar, and play the Sun’s Song to trigger the appearance of a chest containing the Heart Piece.


Heart Piece 7

Location: Goron City (Child)

Prerequisites: Deku Stick, Goron Bracelet

Use a Deku Stick to carry a flame from Darunia’s room to light the torches at the very bottom of the city. The giant vase will start spinning. That’s your cue to toss a Bomb Flower into the open jar. If you can time it right, the jar will stop on its happiest face and spit out a Heart Piece.


Heart Piece 8

Location: Death Mountain Crater

Prerequisites: Bombs

If you enter the wide cavern at the summit of Death Mountain, you’ll find yourself in Death Mountain Crater. The cliff directly in front of you has footholds that you can use to climb down it if you’re careful. Work your way down and you can reach a small alcove containing a Heart Piece. Be careful because without heat-resistant clothing you’ll burn up if you don’t hurry.


Heart Piece 9

After gaining Magic Power from the Great Fairy on Death Mountain, have Kaepora Gaebora the owl give you a ride down the mountain. He’ll drop you off on Impa’s roof.

Walk into the opening in the wall and you’ll emerge in a cow stall containing a Heart Piece.

Prerequisites: Deku Stick

Light all of the torches on the bottom floor of the domain with a Deku Stick and a chest will appear that contains a Heart Piece.
