Location and Uses
These are dropped by common enemies, similar to Rupees, but are much rarer; they appear after defeating 40 to 45 enemies. It is activated as soon as Link touches it. The item will be denoted by a change in music and causing Link's sword to flash. The item causes Link's sword to deal double damage and to send enemies flying when he hits them. This also results in a larger explosion when an enemy dies. It also increases Link's movement speed. It is one of two temporary upgrades available, the other being the Guardian Acorn.
In Link's Awakening DX, the Red Clothes can be obtained, which acts like a permanent Piece of Power. Pieces of Power can still be obtained after this, and the damage boost will stack with the Red Tunic, quadrupling the original damage output as well as giving the benefit of extra speed.
