Lives are only present in the original Drawn to Life and Drawn to Life: Spongebob Squarepants Edition. If The Hero loses all of their health in a level, they will lose a life and then go back to the start of that section of the level. If this happens when they have zero lives left, then a game over will occur and they will have to start again from the point where the game last saved.
Lives take on the appearance of The Hero's head, and can be seen in levels floating in the air with sparkles around them.
- The maximum number of lives that can be accumulated is 99.
