Fictional artifact in The Legend of Zelda series

The Triforce is a fictional artifact from Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series of video games. Referred to as "The Golden Power" in ancient Hylian literature, it represents the essence of the Golden Goddesses who created the realm of Hyrule that was left behind when they departed the realm for the heavens. It is said to grant godlike power to the one who holds all three pieces and is a main focus of the plot of many games in the series, including The Legend of Zelda, The Adventure of Link, A Link to the Past, Ocarina of Time, Oracle of Ages, Oracle of Seasons, The Wind Waker, Skyward Sword, and A Link Between Worlds. The Triforce consists of three equilateral triangles, which are joined to form a large equilateral triangle. Occasional variations are found in the shape and subdivisions.
