Obliterate means "to wipe out completely or reduce to nothingness." A move which makes something disappear totally to such an extent that not even a trace is left behind is said to be "obliterated."

One can obliterate something usually by crossing it off, switching it off, undoing it, erasing it away, deleting it, scratching it off or wiping it off. A person is said to be obliterated when he is killed, murdered or is disappeared without a trace. The word "obliterate" entered English literature in the later half of the 13th century.
