A 1 UP Heart (1UPのハート 1UP Heart?) is an item that appears in the series. It debuted in Super Mario Land with a different name. 1 UP Hearts function in a similar fashion of the 1-Up Mushroom. The 1 UP was used for monochromatic graphics, likely due to 1-Up Mushrooms that are difficult to distinguish colors onto the Game Boy graphics.
