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.
