A trope pretty heavily influenced by FrankensteinsMonster is nonetheless quite distinct from the former in that, while Frankenstein's Monster usually has a human-like appearance, sans UncannyValley and various body parts belonging to different people, a flesh golem [[note]]TropeNamer: ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''[[/note]] need not look normal in the slightest.

If this creature is even vaguely human-like, it may look like a nightmare version of conjoined twins, or it is a hulking abomination made of various parts of human flesh, sometimes skinless, often possessing extra limbs, organs and heads where they really shouldn't belong. Unlike Frankie expies, which tend to be of human-like intelligence or slightly below average, flesh golems don't usually have any intelligence to speak of -- despite being made of human beings they are essentially robots only capable of obeying simple commands.

A popular type of {{golem}}, can also be a HybridMonster if its parts belong to living beings of different species. See also TheWormThatWalks for creatures made of live insects. See also MixAndMatchCritters, MixAndMatchMan and BioPunk.

* Pudge in ''VideoGame/{{Dota 2}}'' (his [[VideoGame/DefenseOfTheAncients original]] model is the same as the trope image). Undying has the ultimate ability named exactly FleshGolem, which transforms him into a buffed up version of himself, but the form he takes on does not fall under this trope.

* The Ferali from ''Literature/TheNightAngelTrilogy'' fit somewhere between this and being an [[EldritchAbomination Eldritch Abomination]] being monsters comprised of the flesh of those sacrificed to create them; as well as those they consume with their many feeding mouths. [[spoiler:They're also [[NightmareFuel Nightmare Fuel]] as those who are consumed have their personalities remain somewhere within the whole leading to an [[AndIMustScream And I Must Scream]] moment and arguably a [[HeroicSacrifice Heroic Sacrifice]] towards the end of the series.]]

* In addition to the classic Flesh version, ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' also has the Carrion Golem. The primary difference being the Carrion Golem's parts don't necessarily need to belong to the same ''species''.

* A series called Ark Warriors by ''WebOriginal/{{Qem95}}'' has season 1 and 2 based about a team trying to stop either an evil king or a ghostly cult from summoning one of these.
** However, the cult is not revealed to be a ghost and instead is a thousandth of the golem he's trying to summon.
