Triforce Charts are purple maps found only in The Wind Waker and are necessary to finish the game. They reveal the location of Triforce Shards of the Triforce of Courage that have been scattered around the Great Sea. Link must collect all of these shards in order to return to Hyrule.
Although each Triforce Chart shows the location of a shard, they are all initially unreadable. Link must take the charts to Tingle, who deciphers them for 398 Rupees each and makes them readable to Link.
In the original The Wind Waker, there is one chart for all eight of the Triforce Shards, coming to a total cost of 3184 Rupees to decipher them all. However, in the HD version, there are only three Triforce Charts, so they cost 1194 Rupees in total to be deciphered.
The Triforce Charts are hidden in chests throughout the Great Sea. In The Wind Waker, there are eight charts, but in The Wind Waker HD, only three of the originals were kept in the game. The other charts were replaced with their respective shard. However, the three remaining charts still function in the exact same way as the first eight do, aside from being numbered differently. Their shards are still found in the same locations that the original version's equivalents were.
