Extra Lives are items that increase the playable characters' life count. These aren't common, obviously, and they're sometimes found in hidden locations/alternate paths where they can appear in groups. Only HTFA 3 has a strict life count limit of 10, other games have unclear limit to how many lives a player can keep. Another alternative of getting extra lives is by picking up a certain amount of common collectibles (like gems), but only certain games can do this.
In games made by HTFMegaman, the "life" mechanic is always featured. If a HTFA game is made by someone else, depending on the creator's preference, he/she may or may not include that mechanic.

The item is the same as in HTFA 2. However, these appear very rarely. But you can also gain extra lives by picking up 100 jewels. Then again, the latter method may or may not work, considering the game is still rather buggy.

There are no extra lives in any form in this game, as the player character has infinite lives.
