Vitality Heart is an item that can be acquired in some Kirby games which permanently increases Kirby's maximum stamina when collected. It is typically hidden in a Treasure Chest in a hard-to-reach place, and may come in pieces, requiring Kirby to reassemble them before gaining the health boost.
Kirby & The Amazing Mirror
Vitality Hearts first appeared in Kirby & The Amazing Mirror. There are four of them in total, and finding each one increases Kirby's health by one bar until it reaches a maximum of 10. Finding all these hearts is a requirement for 100% completion.
Vitality Hearts can be found in the following rooms:
Kirby: Canvas Curse
- Main article: Medal Swap
Instead of being found in chests in the main levels of Kirby: Canvas Curse, the player can purchase Life Boosts from the Medal Swap. Each of these costs a different number of Medals to unlock, and there are three in total which can be purchased. These boosts only affect Kirby, and do not increase the maximum health of the other characters.
In addition Paint Roller can paint a Vitality Heart during the Paint Panic Boss Game.
Kirby: Squeak Squad
In Kirby: Squeak Squad, Vitality Hearts return, and there are once again four to collect. This time, however, they are split into eight halves which must be found separately in treasure chests in various stages. Whenever Kirby finds two halves of a Vitality Heart (no specific pieces are needed), he can put them together to increase his maximum health.
Vitality Heart pieces can be found in the following stages:
