Golem (ゴーレム, Gōremu?) is a summon and enemy that appears in various games in the Final Fantasy series. They often appear as humanoid giants that are usually composed of inorganic material such as clay, rock, and metal. As a summon, its special ability, Earth Wall, puts up a barrier that absorbs physical attacks. As an enemy, the recurring types of golem are the Stone Golem and Mythril Golem.

## AppearancesEdit

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 makes the party invulnerable to physical damage for a time being. The formula for how long Earthen Wall lasts when used is as follows:

$Wall HP = (20 + Level) * 50$

### Final Fantasy TacticsEdit

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!"

## EtymologyEdit

[view  · edit  · purge]In Jewish folklore, a golem is an animated anthropomorphic being, magically created entirely 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.
