Clover Leaf1
Clover Leaf2
Clover leaves are Twinsen's lives. Every time his life points drop to zero, he will lose a clover leaf. If he loses all his clover leaves, he will die, resulting in game over.

In LBA, after losing a life, Twinsen respawns at where he entered the current map. So, spare clover leaves can be used as items to instantly refill HP and MP to avoid losing the progress. In LBA2, this feature was dropped since Twinsen respawns at the last safe-to-stand-on point before his death, making it unnecessary.

Clover leaves are stored in Clover Boxes which limit the maximum lives Twinsen can have at a time. Additional boxes can be found to increase this maximum. In LBA2, picking up a clover leaf with no empty boxes available replenishes life and magic points to maximum, and the next clover after that refills the Horn of the Blue Triton.

Clover leaves aren't randomly dropped from dead enemies, only a few specific ones drop them. Very rarely, they are available as random drops in specific game events. Most can be found in special places like some specific mushrooms. Some of them are given to Twinsen by NPCs as rewards.

In LBA1, clovers are easy to obtain but are just as easy to lose: almost every monster in the game is strong enough to do Twinsen in from full health in less than ten seconds.

Locations table legendEdit

  • Permanent: accessible during a large part of the game (generally, for the whole time on a planet)
  • Temporary: accessible during a short frame in the plot; alternatively, in an area that is technically accessible afterwards but is such a detour that it's impractical[1]
  • One-time: given one-time and doesn't respawn upon revisiting the area; alternatively, located on a map that's impossible to revisit

Difficulty: remoteness/technical

  • Near: at, or almost at a major path - can be collected without spending much time while in the area
  • Far: requires a detour of at least a few minutes of real time to (re)visit while in the same area
  • Remote: requires a trip to another area and/or a very time-consuming sequence to revisit
Technical difficulty
  • Easy: no specific problems, can be used to replenish leaves supply by revisiting the area if not one-time
  • Medium: slight problems without a high risk to lose a life
  • Dangerous: need to avoid high danger to pick - likely to lose lives on an attempt
