* Despite its name, the ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' Golem isn't an example, as it is a RockMonster that is formed naturally (well, if you count being mutated from a different rock monster by radiation from a teleportation machine "natural", anyway). The four Regis, however, do. The original trio were made of stone (Regirock), ice (Regice), and metal (Registeel) and possibly represent the three ages of humanity (Stone Age, Ice Age, and Iron/Metal/Modern Age). Their king, Regigigas is made of [[GoldAndWhiteAreDivine marble and gold]] with moss growing over his body.
** ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'' introduces Golett and its evolution Golurk, which are clay golems ''possessed by a ghost''. Physically their designs mainly harken back to early HumongousMecha like ''Tetsujin28'', but Golurk's design does contain a nifty ShoutOut to the Golem of Prague with the crack in his chest held shut by a piece of metal.

* The ''Franchise/DragonQuest'' series features monsters named Golem (made of bricks) and Gold Golem (made of gold). They both made their appearance in the first game: the standard one as the guardian of a town and thus a boss, and the Gold Golem as a random encounter that gave lots of gold.

* Creator/HarryTurtledove wrote a short story about a traditional Golem which saves a Jewish family from the Holocaust during WorldWarTwo. He/it is "killed" when a Nazi bullet strikes the first letter of the word carved on his forehead and erases it, changing it from 'emet' to 'met'.

The Golem is a creature from Jewish folklore which was a clay figure animated by a [[ReligionIsMagic holy man]]. It was generally unable to speak, lacked a soul, and followed orders like an automaton. The original Hebrew word can mean an unshaped form or figuratively a stupid person.

* In the WhateleyUniverse, the superpowered Charmer has several already-prepared charms she carries with her; one is a 'golem charm' that she has apparently used in self-defense class.
** And Eldritch is a former member of the academy's weapon range crew turned into something called an 'artificer', essentially a (still largely human-looking) golem with the potential to become the perfect magic-item crafting slave for whoever manages to get the proper tattoos on her body. As of this writing, she's still trying to figure out how to do the job herself and thereby retain her independence, which would apparently make her the first artificer to ever do so.

* The necromancer of ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}} II'' can summon fighting golems made of clay, metal, blood, or fire. Clay Golems slow opponents and have HP, Metal Golems take on the properties of what they're created from, Blood Golems can steal life to heal itself and the Necromancer (prior to the final patch, this link functioned both ways, harming the Necromancer when the golem is hit), and Fire Golems are immune to fire and grow stronger when hit by fire attacks as well as having a damaging fire aura.

* Despite its name, the ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' Golem doesn't really count, as it is a RockMonster that is formed naturally (well, if you count being mutated from a different rock monster by radiation from a teleportation machine "natural", anyway). The four Regis, however, do. The original trio were made of stone (Regirock), ice (Regice), and metal (Registeel) and possibly represent the three ages of humanity (Stone Age, Ice Age, and Iron/Metal/Modern Age). The jury's still out on what Regigigas is supposed to be.

* A Halloween episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' features a Golem (visually based on [[Film/TheGolem the 1920 movie]]) and portrays its [[ReligionIsMagic creation by a rabbi]]. Bart takes over the Golem and has it slaughter people until Lisa allows it to speak, at which point it's voiced by Richard Lewis and begins acting like a stereotypical Jew. The family make a female Golem out of play-doh, voiced by Fran Drescher, and the pair get married in a Jewish ceremony.
