The Triforce and Force Gems

Without a doubt, the Triforce, made up of three golden triangles that together represent power, wisdom, and courage, is one of the most prevalent elements in The Legend of Zelda’s franchise. Much of the lore has revolved around this sacred artifact that is said to hold ultimate power. The Triforce is almost as ancient as Hyrule itself, and since then, countless wars have been fought in order to obtain its power.

But what exactly is the Triforce? It is often defined as the essence of the Golden Goddesses; this “essence” may be what has been referred to in the Zelda universe as “Life Force”. Life Force exists in all living things, and it is what constitutes Force Gems, which are Life Force in physical form. It can be speculated that the Triforce is really just a set of powerful Force Gems, a fraction of the Golden Goddesses’ Life Force.
