Rings are items used throughout quests which reduce the damage Link takes.

In The Legend of Zelda, collected rings affected the color of Link's tunic as well as various enemies, Zelda, and the location marker on the passive subscreen. Rings are commonly the most difficult items to obtain in quests because they effectively double the number of heart containers Link holds.

Unless otherwise specified in the Item Editor, each successive ring obtained will halve the damage Link takes, with the exception of the damage Link receives while standing on a damage combo with the appropriate quest rule, introduced in Version 2.50, unchecked.

In many tilesets, the ring sprite is replaced with the image of armor or a tunic.
