* ChinaMieville's novel ''Literature/IronCouncil'' from the Literature/BasLagCycle explores a magical discipline called "golemcrafting", wherein magicians channel power into anything that isn't living. Most of the Golems created are fairly standard (blade, flesh, metal, clay, wood), However the main character of Iron Council creates increasingly more fantastic golems some of the more memorable ones being: poison, light, dark, and [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome TIME]].

* The ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfPussInBoots'' episode "Golem", has a clay Golem that hunts Puss relentlessly. When Puss learns defeating it is as easy as removing the paper slip reading "Destroy Boot Cat" from its mouth, Puss decides to keep it around to be the Orphan's servant, leading to chaos when the Orphans give commands that are too vague.

** That sounds eerily similar to ''Klutter'', a living pile of clothes and mess who featured in a segment of EekTheCat.

* One of [[TheBronzeAgeOfComicBooks Pre-Crisis]] LexLuthor's most powerful inventions was an android created from matter dating back to the earliest moments of the universe. He named it the Galactic Golem, and its power was centered on a glowing point on its forehead, where the inscription on a golem would be.

* In ''[[OneOverZero 1/0]]'' the "Golem" ability is one of the precious few non-natural abilities Tailsteak grants his creation. This allows them to reproduce by building bodies out of whatever they can find and then bringing them to life by speaking their "true name". The Golems aren't traditional Golems though, they speak and react in exactly the same way the "naturally" created characters do. As something of a possible nod to the original myth, the first golem to be created is given a name from the Old Testament (Zadok) and at times identifies himself as a "pseudo-Jew"

* ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' numbers quite a few golems among its artifact creatures. (Which is a bit of {{Retcon}} for some of the older ones since artifact creatures originally didn't ''have'' creature types of their own.) Possibly the most famous of them is [[http://ww2.wizards.com/gatherer/CardDetails.aspx?&id=9847 Karn]], the pacifist silver golem who eventually became a planeswalker in his own right.

* In Fanfic/TheCadanceverse, the protagonist ponies must battle and defeat a warrior golem in order to reach the Elements of Harmony. As it turns out, they already know another golem -- [[spoiler: Princess Cadance, who was created by Celestia and Luna to mediate between them.]]
* Featured in FanFic/DungeonKeeperAmi. Ami hates to put her minions, er, [[InsistentTerminology employees]] in danger. Thus her forces are composed mostly of Ice golems. Later, she adds the stronger and more imposeing (but also more costly) 'Reaperbots'. [[{{Magitek}} Basically remote-piloted mini-mecha that use magic]]. [[PowerArmor Ami uses a similar device in her duel with a horned reaper]].
