* This may or may not be the true nature of the [[PersonalSpaceInvader ReDeads]] from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZelda'', [[DependingOnTheWriter depending on the game in question]]. ''[[TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask Majora's Mask]]'' implies that they are [[EverythingsDeaderWithZombies actually undead]], whereas their trophy descriptions in the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' games states that they are merely clay humanoid figures animated with magic.

* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfSpyro: Dawn of the Dragon'', Golems are {{Kaiju}}-sized lava monsters from below the Earth. Only one appears and it serves as TheDragon to Malefor in the game. It can regenerate by absorbing rock or rubble and the only way to permently kill it is to destroy the Dark Gem acting as it's brain. [[spoiler:Spyro and Cynder shatter it's brain, sending it falling off a building.]] [[TheJuggernaut The Destroyer]], a planet destroying EldritchAbomination Malefor unleashes is pretty much a mountain-sized, much more frightening one.

* One of the characters in ''VideoGame/KillerInstinct (2013)'' is Aganos, an ancient war golem that was ordered to learn how to think for itself by a Babylonian king, effectively giving it free will. Aganos is the largest character in the game, big enough for the camera to pan out so it can be fully shown, and it's playstyle revolves around loading up on rock chunks, which give it [[ImmuneToFlinching armor]] and access to various tools, at the cost of moving and jumping slower for each chunk loaded.

The entry of the golem into popular culture as a fantasy monster is probably ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', which called the classic version a "clay golem", and included other types such as Stone, Iron, or the FrankensteinsMonster-like "FleshGolem". Other fantasy worlds have expanded into substances such as Lead, [[Literature/{{Pinocchio}} Wood]], {{Lava|AddsAwesome}}, {{Blood|yMurder}}, {{Mithril}}, and even more unlikely substances, like [[TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering Glass]], [[BreadEggsMilkSquick Paper, Wax, Junk and]] ''[[TheWormThatWalks Maggots]]''. And don't even get us started on the ones made of [[VideoGame/AdventureQuest dirty laundry]].

Often Golems and ImprovisedGolems are made BornOfMagic. A non-living vessel is magically imbued with life and consciousness. Depictions vary whether the golem requires magic to continue functioning after being made.

* The golems in ''Literature/ShamanBlues'' are made of graveyard earth and animated by creator's magic, or magic "borrowed" via rithual sacrifice. Their level of coherence and intelligence depends on how much magic energy was used to animate them.

* Creator/AAPessimal has a slightly different take on Literature/{{Discworld}} golems '''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5256269/1/Clay-of-My-Clay-The-Dorfl-Truth here]]'''. What if, when the golem Dorfl was rebuilt at the canonical end of ''Discworld/FeetOfClay'' he wasn't ''just'' given a tongue? in "Clay of my Clay", Dorfl meets Gladys, the feminized golem of ''Discworld/GoingPostal'', and a sort of , er, ''plastic surgery'' is offered to both to allow them to get married...

** It is very possible that Oscar, the golden statue guarding the Paramount against intrusion from the Dungeon Dimensions in ''Discworld/MovingPictures'', is a specialised golem created for this purpose alone.
** In ''Discworld/IShallWearMidnight'', city witch Mrs Proust animates a bronze equestrian statue into a sort of impromptu golem when she needs a fast escape from a witch-burning mob.

* ''VideoGame/PathOfExile'' has Golems available as a type of minion. A summoner can only have one golem active at a time, and each provides a different buff to the summoner while it's active. Fire golems provide increased damage, Ice golems provide increased accuracy and critical chance, Stone golems grant life regeneration, and Chaos golems give physical damage resistance.

** If you interpret the original norse text, ''Thor himself'' may be considered a Golem - FromACertainPointOfView. His mother is Jord (Earth), but it is stated that Odin ''created'' Thor from Earth, he was not ''born'' in a traditional way. He is also stated to be Odin´s firstborn.
