The Golem is a recurring enemy in the Dragon Quest series. Introduced in the first game as a boss, it has since appeared in several other installments of the series, primarily as a normal enemy.


Golems are hulking man-shaped monsters made of clay bricks. This sums up most of their appearance with their face being the only other detail: a mouth-like opening with two eyes glowing from the darkness.

Since the appearance of the first Golem the species has solidified itself as a hefty force of physical might but one that lacks in resistance to spells. One of the most notable vulnerabilities of the Golem is that of sleep-inducing abilities, an Achilles' heel that made the first Golem easy to defeat and has since stuck with the monster as one of its more unfortunate qualities.

The Golem is a boss fought in the Rexwood Tower.


With Hank on your side, the Golem isn't difficult at all. Although it is tough, a Sap spell cast on it twice renders it soft. Plus, the Golem also hits Hank and you don't have to worry about healing Hank. As long as you keep your HP to 20, the Golem will pose no threat.
