The Three Goddesses
Goddesses of Creation who control power, wisdom, and courage. Din, Nayru, and Farore each have a crest that represents them, which can be found in places related to them.

DHThe Three Goddesses
Din, Nayru, and Farore each left a crest bwhind. Each of these symbols– the crests of power, wisdom, and courage– can be found in a location related to its respective goddess.



The Omnipotent Triforce
A Sacred Triangle that grants the wish of those who touch it. The Triforce does not distinguish between good and evil, and therefore grants both good and evil wishes.

Using it correctly requires a strong heart and inherent ability, as well as balance between power, wisdom and courage. If touched by one without this balance, it splits into three peices, the Triforce of Power, Wisdom, and Courage. The one who touched it is left with only the one he most strongly believes in, while the other two appear on the back of the hands of two others chosen by the Gods. To obtain its true power, the two missi
ng pieces of the Triforce must be acquired.

DHThe Triforce grants wishes to those who touch it. Since the Triforce does not distinguish between good or evil, it allows both good and bad wishes.

A strong heart, innate ability, and a balance of the three virtues (power, wisdom, and courage) are required to be granted a wish. If one who does not possess the balance of the three virtues touches the Triforce, its three pieces split apart. The finder is left with the piece that personifies what he or she values most. The other two pieces will appear on the hands on two individuals, chosen by the will of the goddess. One must reunite the three pieces in order to obtain true power.
