* ''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]].

* ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'' series has the ''gholam'', essentially vampiric [[{{Terminator}} T-1000s]] with [[AntiMagic invulnerability to magic]] and [[NighInvulnerable pretty much everything else]]. [[OhCrap Yeah]]. They unnerved the ''Dark Side'' so much that only six were ever made, and only one is known to still exist in the present day.

* Used as an analogy in ''Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles'' where Sarah mentions the golem twice. The first time describes only the version of the story where it turns on its creator, as voice over for a scene where an evil Terminator is getting facial reconstruction. The second is at the end of the episode, describing other versions of the story and comparing the creator and golem to a parent and child (her and John).

* The ''{{Digimon}}'' franchise has Golemon. Of course, whatever the theme of a Digimon is, all Digimon are living data, but the first Golemon we met was one of many artificial MonsterOfTheWeek mon created from control spires by Arukenimon, and a few seasons later more were created from dirt by Grumblemon. As such, the ones ''we'' met really were golems, though it needn't go for the whole species.

* 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.
