Incontrovertible evidence

Incontrovertible evidence is a colloquial term for evidence introduced to prove a fact that is supposed to be so conclusive that there can be no other truth as to the matter; evidence so strong it overpowers contrary evidence, directing a fact-finder to a specific and certain conclusion.

Examples: a fingerprint showing a person has been present in a room; a DNA test disproving a claim of parenthood.
