Artwork of a Doll
Use(s) Provides Link with one extra life

Dolls, also known as Extra Lives, are odd dolls that seemed to have been crafted to resemble Link.[1]

Location and Uses

Link Doll as seen in-game

Dolls only appear in The Adventure of Link and increase the number of Link's lives when collected. They are well hidden in certain areas of Hyrule's overworld. However, once they are collected, they disappear from their locations for the remainder of the game and cannot be recollected. Because of this, many players suggest that Dolls should only be collected for venturing out into the Great Palace.


  • The sprite for the Doll was re-used from Link's overworld sprite.
