Which Iconic Video Game Symbol Was Originally A Family Crest?

The Pokemon Ball
The Mortal Combat Dragon
The Triforce (Legend of Zelda)
The Power Up Mushroom (Super Mario)

Answer: The Triforce (Legend of Zelda)

In the Nintendo’s popular Legend of Zelda video game franchise , the Triforce is an ancient Hyrulian relic that embodies the forces of Wisdom, Courage, and Power. In the various Legend of Zelda games the hero, Link, frequently has to recover segments of the Triforce or rebuild it entirely as part of his mission to protect Hyrule.

The stacked triangles that create the symbol of the Triforce have a long history that extends well beyond the 1980s creation of The Legend of Zelda series. The exact configuration of triangles can be found on the family crest of the Hōjō clan. The Hōjō clan was a powerful Japanese family that indirectly ruled over Japan for most of the 12th through 14th centuries be enmeshing themselves within the royal family by a series of marriages and assassinations.
