The Triforce (トライフォース Toraifōsu?) is the golden triangle from Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series of video games. Referred to as "The Golden Power" in ancient Hylian literature, it is an omnipotent sacred relic, representing the essence of the Golden Goddesses who created the realm of Hyrule. It appeared where they departed the realm for the heavens. It is a main focus of the plot of many games in the series, includingThe Legend of Zelda, The Adventure of Link, A Link to the Past, Ocarina of Time, Oracle of Ages, Oracle of Seasons, The Wind Waker, and A Link Between Worlds.
The Triforce consists of three equilateral triangles, which are joined (with an inverted empty triangle in the middle) to form a large equilateral triangle. Occasional variations are found in the shape and subdivisions
