Location and Uses

Guardian Acorns appear after defeating 12 consecutive enemies without getting hit by one.[1] When one is obtained, music changes while halving all damage Link receives for a certain amount of hits.[how many?]

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