Hyrule Compendium Entry
Great Thunderblades are electric, two-handed swords that Link can wield. Being an electric weapon, it 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.
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.
As well as shocking enemies, the Great Thunderblade can be used to temporarily fire electric pulses into certain machines.
