* HeartContainer - Not actually a subtrope. It's for life-increasing objects in video games in general.

* ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts''. [[CaptainObvious Hearts are everywhere.]] They pop up in symbolism, menu icons, and whenever you kill most enemies. Hell, the freaking [[WeirdMoon MOON]] is heart-shaped!

Something of note: According to TheOtherWiki, the exact origin of the '''♥''' symbol [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heart_(symbol) remains controversial]]; however, its existence as a stylized symbol seems to go back at least to medieval Europe, or maybe ancient Roman North Africa.

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsInTheSky'': Several female characters have these in their dialogue when particularly happy, [[GenkiGirl Estelle]] being the biggest offender.
-->'''Joshua''': So then… Why are the girls playing the guy roles?
-->'''Hans''': It’s just something to make the production more interesting this time. Having guys and girls switch roles, that is.
-->'''Estelle''': Really…? Wow…and the teachers are okay with this?
-->'''Jill''': END SEXUAL DISCRIMINATION! BE FREE OF GENDER ROLES! Put in that light, the teachers loved the idea. Personally, I just thought people would get a kick out of it! ♥

The stylized heart shape, '''♥''' (or <3 as an emoticon), is a classic visual metaphor. But, that's for the subtropes. This is for when the heart symbol appears and isn't part of any of those tropes.

The stylized heart shape, '''♥''' (or <3 as an emoticon), is a classic visual metaphor. It has long been used in Western animation and comics to symbolize a romantic crush. Or anything [[HeartsAreHealth health-related]] in VideoGames, which may also relate to HeartContainer as well. A HeartSymbol is also usually used for love, which would be CardiovascularLove, which is also the symbol's primary use in SayItWithHearts and as a type of WingdingEyes.

If the symbol's associated with a villain, it's a WickedHeartSymbol.

When it's used as part of the symbols for an attack, it's HeartBeatDown, which may also be CardiovascularLove, if the hearts represent love/lust/attraction, and possibly beauty, instead of innocence.

* ''Anime/AKB0048'': Every member of the [=AKB0048=] has a heart shaped shine in their hair and [[ExoticEyeDesigns in their eyes as well]]. This feature in particular seems to be a manifestation of the ''potential'' of a girl to be a future Successor, as it shows up the young Lancastar girls after they witness their first concert. It happens again to another set of young girls after they see their first 00 performance as well.
** Former members have diamonds instead. Justified by the fact that there are LoadsAndLoadsofCharacters, makes it easier for people to just identify who is in and who isn't.
