The One-Hit Obliterator is a melee weapon found in Breath of the Wild. It is able to defeat enemies with one blow, however Link will also be killed instantly if an enemy attacks him whilst this item is equipped. It is obtained as a part of the second DLC expansion for the game: 'The Champions' Ballad', in the Shrine of Resurrection, after completing the Free the Divine Beasts Main Quest and accepting Monk Maz Koshia's quest on the Great Plateau.
