Mythril Golem (ミスリルゴーレム, Misuriru Gōremu?), also known as Iron Man, MtGolem or SilvGol, is a recurring Golem in the Final Fantasy. It is typically one of the strongest Golems, with higher HP and defensive stats, as well as stronger Strength stats.

Mythril Golem is fought in the Dawn of Souls, appearing in the Sky Castle areas of the Whisperwind Cove, on levels 31 and deeper. It has a high Defense and Magic Defense, as well as very strong physical attacks. Due to this, and its resistance to all elements, Flare is the best spell to use against it.

The word "mythril" or "mithril" is a metal found in many fantasy worlds. It was originally introduced by the fantasy writings of J. R. R. Tolkien, being present in his Middle-earth. It resembles silver but is stronger than steel, and much lighter in weight than either. The author first wrote of it in The Lord of the Rings, and it is retrospectively mentioned in the third, revised edition of The Hobbit in 1966. In the first 1937 edition, the mail shirt given to Bilbo is described as being made of "silvered steel". The name mithril comes from two words in Sindarin—mith, meaning "grey" or "mist", and ril meaning "glitter".

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.
