How to Triforce

By Nick Hemler

The Triforce is the mystical and powerful relic from the adventure game, "The Legend of Zelda" and resembles three triangles shaped in a larger triangular formation. Out of this piece of video game trivia was born a meme and message boards on the Internet attempted to recreate the Triforce with characters on the keyboard. However, you cannot just copy and paste the Triforce, but rather, you must insert special characters with the keyboard to achieve the Triforce successfully.

Step 1

Using a Microsoft-basedWindows PC, press the following characters in order, taking care to hold down the Alt key and the number as well: "Alt" + "255", "Alt" + "255", "Alt" + "30", "Enter", "Alt" + "30", "Alt" + "255" and "Alt" + "30".

Step 2

Using a Mac, press the following characters in order, taking care to hold down the Option key and the letter or Space key as well: "Option" + "Space", "Option" + "Space", "Option" + "J", "Enter", "Option" + J", "Option" + "Space" and "Option" + "J".

Step 3
