Meta-Essence is the life force of Wonderland. That of your enemies is especially potent. Collect what you can. Use it wisely.

Meta-Essence serves as Alice Liddell's primary source of regenerating both health and willpower. It can be found in some areas of each section, or dropped by enemies when killed. Meta-Essence released by slain enemies evaporates or degrades in a short amount of time. As it degrades, it transforms into smaller shapes until it finally disappears.

Types Edit

Meta Essence · Meta small · Meta octahedron · Pyramid meta

Meta-Essence appear as red, translucent, crystal-like structures with pale blue light shining from their centers and give a set amount of health and willpower depending on its size. In order of highest to lowest health and will:

  • Large heart Meta-Essence
  • Small heart Meta-Essence
  • Octahedron Meta-Essence
  • Pyramid Meta-Essence

Trivia Edit

  • Like the Roses in Alice: Madness Returns, Meta-Essence dropped by enemies is temporary, so it is recommended to pick it up immediately if Alice is low on health or willpower.
