The Heart Container is a staple of the Zelda franchise. In those games, it generally adds an extra heart to Link's life meter. In some games, it may be split up into Pieces of Heart.

It's also a staple of the Smash Bros. franchise, present in every canon installment thus far. In those games, it reduces a fighter's damage percentage by 100, except in some games' All-Star modes and in Smash 64, where it instead healed all damage. They are generally a rare item.
