Guardian Acorns are items in Link's Awakening.[1][note 1]

Location and Uses

Guardian Acorns appear after defeating 12 consecutive enemies without getting hit.[3] When obtained, the music changes while halving all damage Link receives for three hits.[4]

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