Now, it belongs to me. You see, when you take a heart, it becomes enchanted. Stronger than a normal heart. You're not hurting the beast. You're controlling it.

Enchanted Hearts are magical items featured on ABC's Once Upon a Time. They first appear in the seventh episode of the first season.


For history of Enchanted Hearts, see here.


The user of an enchanted heart can:

  • Crush it and kill the victim
  • Control the victim's actions and speech
  • Use the heart to reanimate the victim's dead bodies

Additionally, people with their hearts ripped out are unable to feel any true emotion until the heart is restored.
