Guardian Acorns, also known as Acorns of Defense, are items in Link's Awakening.
Location and Uses
Guardian Acorns appear after defeating 12 consecutive enemies without getting hit by one. 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.
