* ''VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac'' has hearts representing health. Little hearts and half-hearts can be grabbed to replenish them. Items that add a heart to your maximum health include blood bags, a realistic looking heart, and various questionable "foods". There's also the Yum Heart, represented as a big red heart with a bite take out of it, which can be used every six rooms if need be to refill one of your hearts. There are also steel-blue hearts you can get that serve as a shield of sorts, with no limit on how many you can have at a time.

Added DiffLines:

** ''Rebirth'' adds Black Hearts, which are usually found in Curse Rooms, Devil Rooms, Super Secret Rooms, and other places. They act much like Soul Hearts above, but when you lose them, they deal damage to every enemy in the current room, similar to the Necronomicon effect.

** In ''Buster Busts Loose'' for the [[UsefulNotes/SuperNintendoEntertainmentSystem SNES]], if played on Children or Normal mode, the player starts out with three hearts in their health bar, and can extend it up to five by finding crystal carrot power-ups. Completing a level will reset the health bar back to three, and playing on Hard mode subtracts two hearts.
** In ''[[VideoGame/TinyToonAdventuresBustersHiddenTreasure Buster's Hidden Treasure]]'' for the UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis, the player starts out with three hearts in their health bar and can extend it up to five by finding bell power-ups. Unlike ''Babs' Big Break'', ''Montana's Movie Madness'', and ''Buster Busts Loose'', the player's health bar will retain its extra hearts after a level is completed. However, if the player loses a life, their health bar will reset back to three.

* ''{{Astyanax}}''
* ''PrimalRage'' has a slightly more gruesome application this: your lifebar is represented as a major artery ending in a beating realistic heart, and your [[BreakMeter stun gauge]] is represented as a spinal cord ending in a brain: when the stun gauge is depleted, the brain crackles with electricity, and when you take damage, the heart beats faster. If you lose a round, the heart explodes and the brain is fried to ashes.

If Snoopy gets hit, the heart he loses will float above him, and he can re-collect it before it disappears. In addition, Snoopy can also regain lost hearts by collecting cookie power-ups.
