Yes, Someone At Google Is Slightly Triforce Obsessed

When Earth Day rolled around, an army of Kotaku tipsters pointed out the Triforce from The Legend of Zelda's cameo in Google's holiday logo. Turns out that's happened more than once. A lot more than once.

Google apparently has an... enthusiastic Legend of Zelda fan on staff, as Google Blogoscoped points out, highlighting eight of who knows how many appearances of the Nintendo trademark in various specialised corporate logos. Commenters on the blog dug up four more. What's the secret?

They just employ a talented Zelda fan. And when I say "fan," I mean cosplaying Link-calibre fan. All signs point to Google web illustrator and web designer Susie Sahim, whose many doodles feature a Triforce signature.

While Sahim has been deferring requests for comment to her Google overlords, we'd think her obvious interests are reflected in her work. And that if anyone found this Google-Triforce crossover mysterious, that mystery should be considered solved.

Or is it?!!

(Yes, it really is.)

The Great Google Doodle Triforce Conspiracy [Google Blogoscoped - thanks, Ulysses!]


    Just seems like somebody likes to tag their work, except with a tiny little watermark (in the shape of the Triforce) instead of a signature, which would look a little odd when it's slapped onto the Google logo...

    googles going to buy nintendo, its a sign...

    You are all blind to this divine numerical monstrosity. Yeah, I too invested hundreds of hours besting Zelda. It was our entire world as once was a the Vic 20 and Atari. But we beat it! I know those cats sure did. Wake up! These guys are genius. They do nothing lightly. They have taken the whole world before your very eyes in a decade and you doubt duality in their historic message. WTF? THE DOODLES ARE ALL! DIVINE! The "triforce" is proof from GOD. Perfect numerical proof penned the Bible himself. PROOF of your divine creation. ZELDA? Know! They! Know! The triangle is 666. The aliens doodled are real. The Google doodle is divine. It is our line. check this english guy [email protected]

    And MARK my words... You ain't seen nothing yet.

    Google power meter was invented to regulate the consumption of power potentially provided to the public for sale by Google Energy, LLC using 111 year old Tesla technology. This venture between Elon Musk and Google was commemorated by the Triforce Easter egg symbols in 2009. Many of these triangle symbols were incorporated into the Google Doodles that lead up to the 09/09/09 9:09:09 Google Doodle and were subsequently removed from record in The Great Google Doodle Conspiracy
    Something obviously went wrong in September 2009. Did they cause Sumatra? Did Zelda fan Susie Sahim take the fall because George Hwang was instructed by Larry Page and Sergey Brin to include the symbolic Triforce symbols? Ask The Three Musketeers of Tesla Motors. Oh wait... they died in Palo Alto and their bodies were burned beyond recognition while the city was in chaos soon after that.
