Like Alexander, this Esper was made before the war. Shields vs. some attacks.

Appearances[edit | edit source]
The golem-type enemies in this game are the Stone Golem, Mythril Golem, Wood Golem, and Gold Golem. Golems in this game have high defenses and resist many types of damage, but all have one weakness to a specific type of magic.

In addition, a special Golem also appears as a summon. This Golem appears in Drakenvale and initially attacks the party as ???. The party is unable to defeat him, as it will attack then escape. The Golem can be found further on the mountain attacked by a Bone Dragon and a Zombie Dragon, now as Golem and will ask for help.
The battle is a fixed encounter in the screen with bones lying on the grass. If the party defeats the monsters, Golem joins as a Level 3 Summon. The player obtains the spell in the inventory as an item, and the player needs to use it for it to be listed in summon section. Golem can also be fought in Interdimensional Rift if not obtained from Drakenvale.
Golem costs 18 MP to summon and negates a given amount of physical damage to the party. The formula for how much protection is afforded per cast is as follows:
Golem's magicite can be purchased at the auction for an overall price of 20,000 gil. After he has been summoned, his hand will appear and block any physical attack the enemy makes against the party, but only until his hit points are depleted, which are equal to the caster's HP when cast. He costs 33 MP to summon. As a magicite, he teaches Protect (x5), Stop (x5) and Cura (x5). He provides a +2 Bonus of Stamina when leveling up.
The only golem to appear is the Sand Golem. It is unique in that reducing its HP to zero does not kill it—players must target and destroy the golem's red core to kill it.
Despite often being named after "metallic" or "mineral" substances (Stone, Ore, Rock, Mythril or Darksteel), Golems all appear to be made of Mythril, and when defeated can drop Mythril Ore as a reward to the victor. Golem Shards can also be retrieved from the fallen Golem, which can be crafted into Cermet Chunks—a high demand item.
Woodland colossus who stands watch over Nature's creation.
Golems are a family of soulkin that can be found throughout Eorzea, appearing as standard enemies in the Central Shroud, North Shroud, Outer La Noscea, Southern Thanalan, and Churning Mists zones, as well as the Aquapolis, Binding Coil of Bahamut, Cutter's Cry, and Sunken Temple of Qarn (Hard) dungeons.
An esper that absorbs damage from physical attacks on behalf of allies until its limit is reached.
Golem can be learned by Summoners, and blocks all attacks from the normal attack dealt by non-beast type unit, Jump, Throw, and Aim commands to the summoner's party until it has absorbed damage equal to the summoner's max HP. If Golem is recast before it has blocked enough damage, the amount of damage it can absorb will be reset to the caster's max HP. Also if more than one ally summon the Golem, only the last one's HP will be taken into account, not stacking up the HP pool of all casters.
It costs 40 MP to cast, has a speed of 34, and needs 500 JP to learn. It has a basic hit-rate of 100% regardless of the caster's magickal AT and Faith. However, a caster with zero Faith or under the status effect Atheist will actually miss the spell when summoning Golem.
In the PlayStation version, when summoned, the caster will sometimes chant, "Earth-minded soul, protect us! Golem!"
The Golem is a member of the Headless species.
Golem is an Eidolon that appears as a summon and a boss. He is a giant of stone, has slow movement, and can damage enemies by walking over them, shoot his arms for damage, and enter a state of temporary invincibility. The Golem has six forms: Golem, Gigas, Troll, Ogre, Titan, and Dwarf Golem. These can be unlocked through various missions.
This is the first time Golem appears as a summonable creature in a 3D game.
The Golem is the only Golem-type enemy to appear.
Golems have the ability to explode; when their HP is low, they begin ticking. When they "finish" ticking, they explode, causing heavy damage, being thrown to the ground and being on fire. There are three types of Golem—the generic Golem, Green Golem, and Purple Golem.
Golems appear as automatons that inhabit the city of Spelvia. When attempting to access a shop without Rolan in the party, the Golems will attack them. Golems have low HP and have no special abilities.
The Golem is an inorganic-type enemy fought in the Temple of Wind. Golems are extremely powerful, and their Megaton Punch can deal hundreds of damage to characters at once. Their Spin Slam deals a moderate amount of damage to all party members.
Several other golem enemies appear:
A yellow Golem sprite exists in the data that is likely to be a dummied sprite.
Golem appears as a collectable summon. Its illustration was drawn by Matrix.
Golem is an Earth-elemental esper. From time to time, players may encounter Golem in battle. Defeating Golem will grant players the Golem I summon stone, which allows Golem to be summoned into battle. When summoned, Golem uses the skill, Heavy Strike.
Golem enemies from throughout the series appear as regular enemies in their respective realms.
In addition, the recurring Golem summon was set to appear as a Summoning ability, but does not appear in the final product. Due to it never being implemented into the game, Golem's summon ability does not have a proper name and is instead labeled as Diamond Dust.
Golems usually appear as enemies in the dungeons. Two of them, named Gotton and Gauche, live in the village taking care of the nut-giving tree.
Golem appears on two Earth-elemental Summon cards: one depicting his Final Fantasy Tactics appearance; one depicting his Final Fantasy Type-0 appearance; and one his Final Fantasy Airborne Brigade appearance.
Golem from Final Fantasy Brave Exvius appears on Triple Triad cards in the version available via Final Fantasy Portal App.

Etymology[edit | edit source]
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.
