The Marks of the Goddesses are recurring symbols in the Legend of Zelda series. They are the Mark of Din, Mark of Farore, and Mark of Nayru. In some games, the marks are associated with the three Golden Goddesses, while in other games they directly represent their respective virtues (power, courage, and wisdom), or have no stated connection to them.


Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Zora's Sapphire

The first appearance of one of these marks is the Mark of Nayru, though it is never said to be related to Nayru in the game, and the other two marks do not appear. The mark is the symbol of the Zora people and is similar in appearance to the Zora's Sapphire.

The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages

Tune of Echoes
Tune of Currents
Tune of Ages

The set of marks appears in full for the first time, though they are not associated with the goddesses in this game, and merely serve as icons in the item select menu. They are symbols used to represent the three tunes played on the Harp of Ages; the "Tune of Echoes", "Tune of Currents", and "Tune of Ages".

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker

Din's PearlNayru's PearlFarore's Pearl
The marks are associated with the goddesses for the first time, appearing on the Pearls of the Goddesses. A symbol similar to the Mark of Nayru also appears on Medli's and Laruto's clothing. This is likely related to the mark's use as a symbol of the Zora in Ocarina of Time.

The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass

Courage GemPower GemWisdom Gem
The marks appear on the three types of Spirit Gem. They are not associated with the goddesses directly, but are used to represent their virtues; Courage Gems bear the Mark of Farore, Power Gems bear the Mark of Din, and Wisdom Gems bear the Mark of Nayru. These marks are also seen on the three Doors of Virtue.

The marks also represent the Three Spirits; Ciela, Spirit of Time and Courage; Leaf, Spirit of Power; and Neri, Spirit of Wisdom.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

The marks are given proper names for the first time in the series. The Mark of Farore can be found in parts of Faron Woods. Link can find a complete version of the mark in one area, and elsewhere finds a door which features only a partial rendering of it. Link must use the power of a Skyward Strike to complete the mark on the door, opening it and allowing him to access Lake Floria.

The Three Dragons have the marks of their respective Goddess on their robes, and Faron and Lanayru bear their respective marks on their foreheads as well. The songs "Farore's Courage", "Nayru's Wisdom", and "Din's Power" are represented on the inventory screen by their respective marks. The marks also denote the placement of Trial Gates in the Sky Keep.
