3-HP Mode is the canon mode for Lunar Shadow. As the name suggests, the player's maximum HP remains 3. The game mode itself doesn't need to be unlocked because the player can choose at the start if they want to activate it or not.


3-HP Mode Normal Mode
Arcanum Infinity Obtainable Unobtainable
Life Capsules Unobtainable Obtainable
Status Canon Non-canon


  • 3-HP mode was inspired by the Hard Mode of Cave Story, which makes the player go through the game without Life Capsules.
