Can't find the Triforce on your own? Click through to the jump to see the image blown up, and the Triforce boxed in.

I found a tri-force on today's Google logo, so I did a Google search to see if there were others. The article above says there are two.

I've found six of them. Does this just mean the artist of these logos is a big fan of the Zelda series, or is there something more to it? The tri-force in the Tesla logo looks different from the rest, with a T-shape in it. I don't know why, but it reminds me of Texaco, which happens to sell gasoline. Is this only a coincidence?

Yeah, I would have brought up the Cody Rhodes thing if it was relevant. I remember the time when he tried to sneak attack Batista with a steel rod and thinking, "You can do it Link!"

On a serious note, I wonder if the tri-force has ever been used as anything in the masonic world. The obvious "Eye of Horus" similarity is there, but I wonder if it means anything as a stand-alone symbol. Just because it's in a video game doesn't mean it's all child's play.

Something I would like to input as an artist:


All of these logos share a very similar art style. That isn't to say that it wouldn't be possibly to easily replicate this style using a digital medium, but they are very likely all created by the same person. Therefore, I think there is a good chance that triforce is a sort of signature the artist implanted, because google wouldn't let the artist sign their name to the piece directly. It was placed in their subtly, but not subtly enough to completely evade attention (it seems sort of obvious on some, such as the water one).

If its not, then there is some super Google/Zelda conspiracy going on and we have only just scratched the surface!

Isn't it most likely the artist's signature? Perhaps the artist is a Zelda fan also -- but don't they all insert secret signatures or something to distinguish themselves?

I like a good conspiracy as much as the next ATSer, but I think there is as much credence in this as there is some sort of conspiracy in the Mouse ears being all over Disney properties. Just branding.

I vote for this answer. I've got a vague "watermark" type logo I sneak into professional stuff at the buyer's/commissioner's permission, because corporations don't want an artist's signature all over their logos.

The person is most likely just a big Zelda fan. I bet some googling will turn up an artist.

I have never seen Zelda. I have never played Zelda. I don't know what a tri-force is. Sorry if I sound a little irritated, but can you tell me what the hell you guys are talking about? So there's a logo in a logo. What's the big deal?

I guess I'm just a little miffed at the assumption everyone plays games and automatically knows what a bloody tri-force is. I probably just need my ba-ba, get burped then a nap, sure, but a tiny explanation would be cool.

here in canada, lately, i have noticed we seem to have no interesting logos anymore....just plain old letters??

I was thinking valentines things might start up soon, but just plain blank seems weirder than weird logo's now.

I'm a graphic artist. If I was making google banners, i'd have a signature logo that I'd just insert as a brush that I could stamp in a few shades brighter, invisible unless you were anal enough of look that close and remember you'd seen it before.

I doubt it's any kind of message, warning, omen or plot.

No idea what the Triforce really means, BUT I loved the old Zelda games, to me, I can't see what's wrong lol These men, playing Zelda, are obviously good people lol I'd laugh if the triforce really means something
