A seed of life (originally translated as Acorn of Life) is an item that permanently raises HP to whoever eats it. It can give off 4-6 HP points. Seeds of life can be found in treasure chests, pots, drawers, or some enemies may drop them. They cannot be bought at shops.


Dragon Quest[edit]

Due to text limitations in the Gameboy Color remake of Dragon Quest, seed of life was renamed to LifeAcorn.
