Life Bottle

From Gallowpedia, the MediEvil Wiki. You'll be dying to read!
Life Bottle HUD from the 2019 MediEvil remake.

Life Bottles, also known as Health Bottles, were said to contain a liquefied form of the magic that reanimated Sir Daniel Fortesque. They acted as measured portions of his life force. Life Bottles could be filled up using Health Fountains or Energy Vials, or by eating Roast Chicken.



Life Bottles appeared as a long-necked green bottles or flasks.


A Life Bottle in MediEvil.

Should Dan's HP fall to 0 when a Life Bottle has been filled, the contents will be poured out onto his body in order to revive him. Should there be no bottles filled when Dan falls, a Game Over occurs.
