The Ōdama (大玉), known as the Big Boulder in English broadcasts, is a First Stage obstacle introduced in SASUKE 8. It was replaced in SASUKE 10 with the Dāsu Bridge.

It consisted of a large ball, 2.7m in diameter, that the competitor must jump on and across a gap onto a landing platform, which is curved. Although it can be defeated by only two large leaps, the slippery surface of the ball has taken down competitors if they step wrongly. In SASUKE 9, it shockingly took out Shane Kosugi in his final SASUKE appearance.
