Fairy Fountains

Tips and Tricks' index  •  Complete Walkthrough

There are two different types of fairy fountains in this game:

  • The Great Fairy Fountains, where a great fairy fills up all your hearts each time you visit her, and
  • the Fairy Fountains, where you can find some small fairies who each fills up five hearts, but you can also capture them in an empty bottle and release them later. If you die with a fairy in one of your bottles, she will automatically heal you.
