Adamantite Golem is an enemy in Final Fantasy IV: The After Years. It is the boss of Ceodore's Challenge Dungeon and a monster-in-a-box in Kain's Challenge Dungeon.



The Adamantite Golem will move towards the party every turn, raising its attack power each time. Eventually, it will attack several times in a row, then remain motionless for a couple turns while it rests before retreating to its original position and starting over. The player should focus on healing and defending while the golem is moving, then when it stops, go all out to and do as much damage as possible. Cross Slash Prime is effective for this. A good strategy is to use Spider Silk at the start of the battle to inflict Slow, then keep the party in the back row while the golem is moving to minimize the damage taken, then move to the front row when it stops moving to do full damage with normal attacks. Or, if the player plans to leave The Hooded Man KO'd (for Kain's Tale) the player needs to level Ceodore until he can learn Blink so the golem's attacks can miss and he can cast it again.


Adamantite and similar words including Adamant and Adamantine are used to refer to any especially hard substance, whether composed of diamond, some other gemstone, or some type of metal.

In Jewish and medieval folklore, a golem is an animated anthropomorphic being, magically created from inanimate matter. The word was used to mean an amorphous, unformed material (usually out of stone and clay) in Psalms and medieval writing. Adam, the first man created by God in the Holy Bible, was a golem since he was created from dust and sand. Having a golem servant was seen as the ultimate symbol of wisdom and holiness, with stories of prominent Rabbis owning golems throughout the middle ages. In modern times, the word golem, sometimes pronounced goilem in Yiddish, has come to mean one who is slow, clumsy, and generally dimwitted.
