Will they ever explain why the Gods created the Triforce?

In SS Zelda explains that she doesn't know the true reason why the Triforce was created. But gave theories on it and explained that their own kind couldn't use it.
Would you like the true reason for its creation to be explained in future titles?

Re: Will they ever explain why the Gods created the Triforce?

I'd love to see it explained, but I highly doubt that they will ever explain it. You can't really get any closer to the gods than Hylia, and if she herself didn't even know, then how else will the truth be discovered?

As far as we know, that is. After all, we didn't know Hylia existed until 1 year ago.

True. They could very well introduce a new person who reveals the truth.

Re: Will they ever explain why the Gods created the Triforce?

Wasn't it said in one game, the goddesses left it behind as a symbol of their power?

In SS, Zelda had a theory that they left it for the Hylians to protect themselves from the other gods.

Re: Will they ever explain why the Gods created the Triforce?

Honestly, I don't think they will ever reveal its true purpose, and I don't care if they don't. At its heart, the Triforce really is just a MacGuffin.

Well obviously they created the Triforce so we could have Zelda games to play.

That is absolutely false. In 1998, we thought the lake and country were named after the hylians. We didn't know what (if anything) the hylians themselves were named after.

Re: Will they ever explain why the Gods created the Triforce?

I thought it was obvious. America is named after someone, as are many other countries. Heres a list of 40 List of countries named after people - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia By comparison most races are named after country of origin.

Maybe im implying too much real worldism, but it looks straightforward. I even remember swimming in Lake Hylia and wondering who Hylia was and why the lake and country were named after her way back then.

Not quite. The name "Hylia" was introduced in ALttP back in 1992, and it referred to the Hylians.

Re: Will they ever explain why the Gods created the Triforce?

I always thought the Triforce was created from the goddesses leaving Hyrule and entering the sacred realm. Like the result of them entering the sacred realm was having the triforce. Some of the power of the goddesses remained in Hyrule through the triforce. Thats my theory.

I like to think of the Triforce as "godly excrement".

Re: Will they ever explain why the Gods created the Triforce?

Maybe the sacred realm or wherever the triforce formed was a kind of meeting place the godesses used to talk about what they did, and whatever. So much residual energy formed in that place that eventually it just became its own entity. The idea of force has been expanded on, and the triforce is just an epic amount of force. The only difference between the triforce and force gems is the amount of force.

So either the triforce was created by accident, or perhaps the godesses just wanted to leave behind a sort of gift to help motivate their people to explore and seek knowledge and power. That's my theory.

Actually if you play Spirit Tracks, you'll notice you get force gems from making people happy. The godesses saw what they had created, and they were really happy with their work.

Re: Will they ever explain why the Gods created the Triforce?

Again, I believe the SS theory stands as the best answer to this.

Zelda says something along the lines that she thinks The Goddesses created it to give people hope, and she's absolutely right. Demise/Ganon always go after the Triforce, but they're shown to be able to take over the world without needing the Triforce anyway. In the end, the very Triforce they go after is what destroy them and restore peace to the land.

Without the Triforce, Demise would've won by Skyward Sword, Ganondorf would probably have taken over Hyrule anyway, etc etc. The Triforce is what allows the people of Hyrule to remain free across the generations in spite of the Demon Tribe's might.

Re: Will they ever explain why the Gods created the Triforce?

I don't think Ganon/dorf would be able to win without the triforce. He does take the castle in OoT, but TP shows that he loses without the ToP. If he hadn't suddenly received it anyway, he would have been executed. Not to mention he needed it in ALttP, otherwise he would already be ruling the Light world.

Demise I'll agree with because he's a physical god without needing the Triforce.

Re: Will they ever explain why the Gods created the Triforce?

Ganon lost in TP because he was taken aback with Child!Link reversing time and warning Hyrule before he could do a single thing. Otherwise Ganondorf was able to curse spirits, starve entire species, attacked Hyrule/The Castle, etc, all before getting the Triforce (which lead to Impa and Zelda escaping). Without Link warning Hyrule, he'd have most likely won Triforce or not.

But that's besides the point. In the end, the Triforce has served the Hylians' sides a lot more than it served the Demon's Tribe.

Re: Will they ever explain why the Gods created the Triforce?

I always imagined it to work as a sort of checks-and-balance system.

Mortals can wield the Triforce to face off against immortal demons and evil spirits, and if it really is ultimate power, stand up against the goddesses themselves.

Ultimately, it exists to give hope to mortals.

There is solid evidence for this, but I could have sworn Zelda says "to give the people hope" at one point.

Yeah that's true. I forgot link would have warned the king, and probably done everything the same to help the Gorons and Zoras, and just not touched the sword.
