"The mighty Golem loves to soak up damage! When destroyed, it explodes and splits in two. The resulting Golemites have one-fifth the Golem's strength and hitpoints."

  • Offensive Strategy
    • A good strategy is to release Golems and wait until all splash damage defenses like Mortars and Wizard Towers fire on them then release units like Archers and Barbarians.
    • Since the Golems do small amounts of damage themselves, it´s important that they are backed up by high damage-dealing troops, like Wizards or Witches.
    • Golems aren't affected by Spring Traps. However, when one becomes two Golemites, the Golemites will be affected by Spring Traps if they encounter them.
    • If possible, destroy the Inferno Tower that is set on Single Target Mode as quickly as possible. Otherwise, they will wipe out your Golems. If the Inferno Tower is set on Multiple Target Mode, it will not be much of a problem.
  • Defensive Strategy
    • Golems, similar to Giants and Lava Hounds, are very high-health units that can be used to soak up fire (meat shields). Make sure that the Golem is in the middle or in range of most of your defenses, as the Golem can distract attacking troops very effectively for a considerable amount of time. Even when overwhelmed, the Golem does a surprising amount of splash damage, enough to kill all Tier 1 and most Tier 2 troops (including lower-level Giants), as well as even Hog Riders. Any remaining attackers will then have to deal with the two Golemites as well.

  • Upgrade Differences
    • The Golem undergoes a significant graphic change at level 5.
      • At level 3, the Golem's rocky exterior changes shade from a light gray to a darker gray.
      • At level 5, the Golem gains purple, crystal-like spikes, quite similar to those on the level 3 Wizard Tower, and his entire body gains a purple/gray color.

  • Trivia
    • The Golem was added in the 17 Apr 2013 update.
    • You can have a maximum of 8 Golems at one time in a complete set of fully upgraded Army Camps. This number increases to 9 if you include the 1 that can fit into a level 5 or higher Clan Castle.
    • Golems, Balloons and Lava Hounds are the only troops that deliver splash damage upon dying. This is in contrast to the Wall Breaker, which dies upon delivering splash damage.
    • The Golem has a housing space requirement of 30, which ties it with the Lava Hound for the highest such requirement currently in the game.
    • The Golem and Lava Hound are the only two troops that can fill a level 5 Clan Castle by themselves.
    • If you have a Golem in your Clan Castle, and it splits into Golemites during a defense, it will become a Golem again after the defense.
