Great Thunderblades are electric, two-handed swords that Link can wield. They were forged by the Royal Family of Hyrule using Lightning from the Hyrule Hills.[1]

A Great Thunderblade can be found sticking out of the earth between the jutted rocks of Cuho Mountain's summit and another can be found being wielded by a Black Moblin in the Coliseum Ruins. Great Thunderblades also have a possibility of spawning on Stalnox, which have to be defeated to obtain.

Being an electric weapon, Great Thunderblades can be used to shock enemies and force them to drop any weapons that they are using, making them easier to dispatch. Each swing of a Great Thunderblade will temporarily drain the electric power from it. When the weapon is completely drained, the blade will have to regenerate it's energy before it can cause electric damage. Using this sword while it is partially charged in this state will also not generate electricity and will pause the regeneration for a second. Dropping the weapon through the inventory screen and picking it back up will instantly recharge the sword.

As well as shocking enemies, the Great Thunderblade can be used to temporarily fire electric pulses into certain machines. Since they're made of metal, they will also attract Lightning if they're equipped during thunderstorms. They will sink if dropped in water, but can be picked up using the Magnesis Rune. Finally, Great Thunderblades won't burn if they're exposed to Fire or a Scorching Climate.
