* ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'', of course. Throughout the game, you'll have to contend with the likes of Book Golems, Coal Golems, Black Slime Golems, a Kitchen Golem (in the very first level, natch), and Graveyard Golems.

* Golems in ''{{Vindictus}}'' instantly assemble a body out of surrounding debris when cast. Notably, if there isn't enough junk lying around, the golem must limp or crawl around until it can assimilate enough for a proper body.

* The necromancer in ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}} II'' is all over this. Aside from insta-summonable earth and blood golems, he can also make metal golems out of any equipment, which then takes on the enchantments and traits of their raw materials.

* The [[http://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/earthbound/images/f/f8/Forlorn_Junk_Heap.png/revision/latest/scale-to-width-down/104?cb=20150919211157 Forlorn Junk Heap]] from ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}'' is a malfunctioning [[{{Golem}} Clayman]] that threw itself into a junkyard, and merged with various bits and pieces of scrap metal. It no longer seems to follow work directives that other Claymen do, instead mindlessly attacking anything that comes near it (including, as it happens, your party).

[[folder: Western Animation]]
* In a ''{{Simpsons}}'' Treehouse of Horror episode, they use Play-Doh to make a bride for the Golem Of Prague.
[[/folder]]



* [[Blog/ThingsMrWelchIsNoLongerAllowedToDoInAnRPG Mr. Welch]] has used this several times, such as creating [[MundaneUtility animated balloon animals]] and even Tequila Golems.
* In the WhateleyUniverse story "Christmas Elves", a somewhat desperate Hekate goes into serious magical debt (in terms of promised ''future'' sacrifices) to turn a jeep, a fighter jet, and a bunch of spare parts into improvised "metal golems" once her captives manage to break free and start rampaging through the Syndicate base where they were being held. (It doesn't really help much.)

* In ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'', at a point when everyone's living in one crowded apartment among the heaps of stuff from their previous larger house, the guys manage to piss off Gwynn (again), and she uses her magic to create the humanoid Clutter Monster from all the random stuff lying around to punish them.

* ''Webcomic/{{Erfworld}}'' has many types of golems, from cloth (giant stuffed animals) to metal (including soft, hard, and acid), to--as Sizemore is discussing with Bogroll in the page image--crap.

* In the ''CounterMonkey'' episode "The Age of Manure", there's a story about a race of "majic dogs" [sic] with magical poop. A mad wizard named Hinsty David decides to try building a golem out of the stuff, presumably as a prank.

* In ''JonathanStrangeAndMrNorrell'' Strange creates several impromptu golems over the course of the book. He makes horse-shaped sand golems to tow a ship, animates a set of stained glass to put out a fire, and when the fire destroys them simply creates golems of water to throw themselves directly on the fire. It's mentioned that the Raven King used to create a huge golem out of ravens.
