Location and Uses

Guardian Acorns appear after defeating 12 consecutive enemies without getting hit by one.[3] When one is obtained, music changes while halving all damage Link receives for three hits.[1]

In Link's Awakening DX, when the Blue Clothes are obtained, obtaining a Guardian Acorn reduces all damage taken to a fourth.
