Princess Zelda

Well, since this is the Legend of Zelda, this would be the character that the game is based on. Princess Zelda is the princess of Hyrule. She has the Triforce of wisdom.


Link is the name given to the left-handed protagonist of the Legend of Zelda series. He is usually seen wearing his traditional green tunic and wielding a shield and sword. He has the Triforce of courage.


He is the main antagonist and is known as the "king of evil". He has an obsession with ruling the world. When Ganon takes the Triforce, it splits into three pieces. He holds the Triforce of power.

The Triforce

Also known as "The Golden Power", the Triforce has the power to make any wish come true. If the holder is malevolent in nature, the world will be engulfed in chaos. Usually, the Triforce splits into three pieces: Power, Courage, and Wisdom. The holder of the Triforce will then gain the piece that is best suited for them. The other pieces will then go to the people that are best suited for their specific traits.
