An iron golem is a large strong neutral utility mob that defends players and villagers. It is one of the few mobs that can be built then spawned in the game.

Spawning[]

Villages[]

In Java Edition, villagers can summon iron golems, either when they are gossiping or panicking. When a villager tries to summon a golem, up to 10 attempts are made to spawn a golem within a 16×13×16 box centered on the villager (villager block position +7/−8 blocks along x/z axes and +6/−6 blocks along y axis). A random y column is picked and then the topmost block in that column is selected that is air, water, or lava, and has a "solid-blocking" block underneath, or block at y=+6 if none such is available in that column. The target location is then checked whether the block underneath has a solid top surface (which is not the same as "solid-blocking"). The target block and 2 blocks above must not be a full block, nor be redstone-powered, nor be rails, and the two blocks above must not be water. This means the iron golem can spawn inside 1-deep water or inside blocks like slabs, fences, and carpets (if other checks pass). Adjacent blocks are irrelevant, so golems can spawn partially inside adjacent solid blocks.[1] However, the spawning iron golem still must not collide with any existing entities.

In Bedrock Edition, an iron golem can spawn naturally when a village first generates in the world. Iron golems also spawn in villages having at least 20 beds and 10 villagers. The golem attempts to spawn in a 16×6×16 volume around the village center defined by a bed, a bell, or another meeting point. For a village to spawn iron golems, 75% of the villagers in the village must have worked in the past day, 100% of the villagers must be linked to a bed, and a player must be within 80 blocks of the village horizontally and within 44 blocks vertically. The chance of attempting a spawn is 1700 per game tick, which averages to one spawn attempt every 35 seconds. Iron golems can spawn provided the 2×4×2 space above the spawn point (that is, horizontally centered on the northwest corner of the block it spawns on) contains only non-full blocks, and the block it spawns on is solid. If the village's original iron golem is killed, a new one cannot spawn unless all of these conditions are met; therefore, small villages do not regenerate an iron golem unless the village is expanded.

Creation[]

Iron Golem build configuration.
Iron Golem build configuration 2.
Iron Golem build configuration 3 ‌[BE only].

Iron golems are created by placing four iron blocks in a T shape (as shown in the image), and then placing a carved pumpkin, jack o'lantern or pumpkin[BE only] on top of the center upper block. The pumpkin may be placed by the player, a dispenser or an enderman, but it must be placed last. It needs at least one block of space around the bottom iron block to be able to spawn and cannot spawn in a confined area, even grass can prevent an iron golem from spawning. Alternatively, the blocks can be placed in any order with an uncarved pumpkin; the player can shear the pumpkin to spawn the golem. When successfully transformed, it is naturally passive toward all players under all circumstances. It can, however, attack the player’s tamed wolves, if punched accidentally, but it never directly attacks the player. The constructed golem attacks hostile mobs like a naturally spawned iron golem.

The block arrangement can be placed upright, lying down, or upside-down. The four empty spaces in the diagram (above and below each of the arms) must be air blocks. Any non-air block (including blocks such as snow layers, grass, and water) present in any of the empty spaces prevent the golem from spawning.

In Java Edition, the player can place a pumpkin on the four blocks of iron, then shear the pumpkin. The iron golem still spawns like normal.

Like other constructed mobs, iron golems always spawn facing south. Their large size may cause them to take suffocation damage from nearby solid blocks at the level of their head.

Dropping a pumpkin on the correct arrangement of iron blocks does not spawn a iron golem.

Pillager outposts[]

An iron golem found within one of the cages surrounding an outpost.

Iron golems can also be found surrounding pillager outposts, confined inside dark oak cages. When freed, they can help the player by attacking any nearby pillagers. Pillagers do not attack iron golems in cages, although the iron golem can attack any pillagers that are one block near the cage, because iron golems can attack through a one-block wall.

Drops[]

Iron golems drop when they die:

Killing an iron golem with a weapon enchanted by Looting has no effect on the number of iron ingots or poppies dropped. Trading prices are unaffected by the killing of iron golems; however, village popularity decreases by 10, affecting village iron golem behavior if the popularity ranges below -15‌[BE only].

Behavior[]

An iron golem offering a poppy.

Iron golems wander around a village in a patrol-like fashion, staying close to buildings and other structures. Like villagers, iron golems do not wander away from a village, regardless of how they were spawned, but sometimes stand at the border of the village.

An iron golem sometimes faces a villager as if they are conversing. Iron golems can spawn poppies in their hands and offer them to villagers, symbolizing the friendly relationship between villagers and iron golems. Baby villagers accept the poppy offered by the iron golem,‌[Bedrock Edition only][2] Attacking an iron golem that is not player-built while the iron golem is holding out a poppy causes it to "confiscate" the poppy and attack the player instead. If the iron golem sees a target while it is offering the poppy, it runs away towards the target like before and kill the target instead.

In Bedrock Edition, iron golems completely ignore villagers, pushing them aside while walking if a villager is in the iron golem's path, but they still offer poppies if possible.

If not within a village, iron golems slowly wander around attacking hostile mobs, usually making their way to a nearby village. If in that village, the iron golem doesn't leave.

Iron golems can walk up a full block height without jumping and walk over a 1 block wide hole without falling in. They avoid water, lava, fire, and cactus. Iron golems are immune to both drowning and fall damage. When in water, they sink, but can still move freely.

In Java Edition, when an iron golem's health reduces to 75%, cracks appear on its surface. An iron golem can be healed when the player right-clicks the chest of the iron golem with an iron ingot.

As with all utility mobs, iron golems can be leashed. The leashed iron golem does not try to break from the lead when it sees a hostile mob. Instead, it looks at the mob while moving. An iron golem that is leashed in mid-air moves its arms and legs while moving. If an iron golem is leashed to a fence, it attacks the hostile mob but does not follow the mob if the hostile mob goes out the attack range, as the iron golem cannot break free from fence leads.

In Java Edition, when iron golems move when provoked, they look like if they're taking strides towards the mob. Iron golems that aren't provoked move slower in Java Edition. Iron golems move faster in Bedrock Edition, as it walks like its normal walking speed, either when provoked or not provoked.

Iron golems cannot pick up weapons or armor, but the player can use NBT commands in Java Edition to give the iron golem weapons or armor, although the armor or weapons are not visible.

Attacking[]

When attacking, an iron golem moves quickly toward its target and swings its arms up violently to attack, flinging the target into the air, and dealing 7♥♥♥♥ to 21♥ × 10.5 damage in Normal difficulty. Iron golems have a large attack range, allowing them to attack through a solid 1 block thick wall, even without a line of sight to the target. When an iron golem attacks, it also deals a long knockback range. Iron golems cannot attack targets that are four blocks high above the same ground level as the golem, meaning its easy to pillar-jump a four block high pillar and attack the iron golem from above while it cannot attack.

It is possible for multiple golems to hit the same target simultaneously, flinging the victim to a height proportional to the number of golems that attacked. The mob/player flung can die from fall damage.

If an iron golem attacks a group of zombies, for example, it targets one zombie to attack until that zombie dies before it attacks a different zombie, even while other zombies are attacking at the same time. The iron golem attacks hostile mobs that attack it in order.

If the mob is flung out of sight, the iron golem attacks the next mob that attacks it. Sometimes, the iron golem might attack the nearest hostile mob if they are in groups.

When an iron golem kills any mob, the player can obtain items dropped by the mob, but no experience orbs. Iron golems that kill a raid mob in Bedrock Edition also causes the mob to drop its raid loot, even when the mob wasn't attacked by the player before it's killed.

Iron golems never attack each other, as iron golems cannot "accidentally" hit another iron golem when attacking.

Provocation by players[]

An iron golem built by a player never attacks players, even when hit or when the player attacks another villager or another golem in front of the player-built golem. A player-built golem attacks the player's tamed wolf if the wolf attacks the golem.

A naturally-spawned iron golem becomes hostile toward a player who attacks a villager near an iron golem. Also, if a player has -15 popularity or less in a village, or has -100 or lower reputation with any nearby villager, naturally-spawned iron golems become forever hostile to that player until the player's popularity goes above -15 and reputation with all nearby villager goes above -100.

A village iron golem retaliates when attacked by a player (even throwing an ender pearl at an iron golem provokes it). If a village has more than one naturally-spawned iron golems and a player attacks one in front of the other(s), all of iron golems in that type may become hostile to the player.

Throwing a positive splash potion or a positive lingering potion does not anger Iron golems.

Provocation by other mobs[]

Although they are guardians of villages, iron golems are not actually provoked when a mob attacks a nearby villager (in contrast to a player attacking a villager). They are provoked when attacked by any mobs (except creepers and ghasts; though they still can attack ghasts if close), and they are provoked by the presence of all monsters (except creepers and ghasts) within 16 blocks. Even if a witch accidently throwing a positive splash potion at an iron golem during a raid does not stop the iron golem from attacking the witch. Iron golems are ineffective against flying hostile mobs that don't venture into the iron golem's reach, such as phantoms.

The list below contains all mobs including players. The iron golem also attacks neutral mobs or hostile mobs that only attack the player such as piglins or zombified piglins.

Entity Iron golem attacks the mob on sight? Attacks the iron golem on sight? Notes
Blaze Yes When attacked They attack the iron golem if it has been attacked by it.
Chicken Jockey Yes Partial A baby zombie riding a chicken attacks iron golems.

If a baby zombified piglin is riding the chicken, the zombified piglin attacks the golem only after the golem attacks first. Attacking the baby zombified piglin also provokes other zombified piglins. If the iron golem attacks another zombified piglin, the baby zombified piglin also attack the iron golem.
The iron golem attacks the rider, not the chicken.

Creeper No No Creepers explode by a flint and steel, when shot by a skeleton, or by a player and they become damaged. Iron golems do not attack creepers although a nearby creeper explosion can still damage the golem.
Drowned Yes Yes Drowned attacks iron golems like they attack villagers. They do not attack iron golems during daytime if they are not in a water block.
Ender Dragon Yes No When in near vicinity, iron golems try to attack the ender dragon, although they are rarely able to. The ender dragon does not target iron golems, but may still hit them by accident.[verify]
Enderman Yes When attacked Endermen attacked by the iron golem retaliate, following their normal neutral behavior. The enderman do not attack iron golems if the iron golem looks at the enderman.
Endermite Yes When attacked A group of endermites attack as a group if the golem attacks one of the endermites in the group.
Ghast Partial No Iron golems almost never attack ghasts, but if close, and the ghast is not moving too much, the golem can attack ghasts. However, iron golems do not seek or approach any ghast outside its range.
Giant [unused mob][Java Edition only] Yes No Giants can't move or attack.
Goat When attacked Randomly Goats may randomly attack iron golems. If the golem is attacked by the goat, the golem retaliates.
Guardian
Elder Guardian
Yes No Guardians and elder guardians completely ignore iron golems, even when attacked.
Hoglin Yes When attacked, group retaliates They attack if an iron golem attacks one hoglin, although group does not retaliate if babies are attacked.
Llama Trader Llama When attacked Accidentally An iron golem attacks a llama that accidentally hits the golem with its spit. After being hit by the golem, the llama deliberately attacks the golem.
Magma Cube Yes Yes Attacks big, medium, and small-sized magma cubes. Big and medium-sized magma cubes attack iron golems, but small-sized magma cubes are unable to deal any damage to iron golems. In Bedrock Edition, magma cubes completely ignore iron golems, but the golem still kills them.
Phantom Yes No Iron golems always attack phantoms on sight.
Piglin Yes When attacked, group retaliates Piglins attack iron golems only if the iron golem attacks one piglin, or piglin brute. Iron golems attack baby piglins, despite them being passive.
Piglin Brute Yes When attacked, group retaliates Piglin Brutes attack iron golems only if an iron golem attacks a piglin or piglin brute.
Player When attacked
Yes (natural if a player has -15 popularity or lower in a village)
No (player-built, and in Peaceful difficulty)
At player's discretion

A naturally-spawned iron golem or commands-spawned iron golem attacks the player if the player attacks it or a villager while playing in the Adventure and Survival modes (it does not attack the player in Creative or Spectator modes).
A naturally-spawned iron golem can also attack any nearby player who has -15 or lower popularity in a village.
Iron golems created by players do not attack players under any circumstances.

Pufferfish When attacked Defensive Iron golems attack pufferfish if damaged by the pufferfish's defense.
Shulker Yes When attacked, group retaliates They attack if an iron golem attacks one shulker.
Silverfish Yes Yes‌[BE only]
When attacked‌[JE only]
in Java Edition, they attack if the iron golem attacks one silverfish. Silverfish always attack iron golems in Bedrock Edition.
Skeleton Stray
Wither Skeleton
Yes Yes Wither skeletons attack iron golems on sight, unlike zombified piglins.
Skeleton Horseman Yes Yes Iron golems attack the rider of a Skeleton Horseman, but not the horse.
Slime Yes Partial Slimes chase iron golems, but do not attack. Iron golems attack slimes despite them not attacking the golem.
Snow Golem When attacked Accidentally The iron golem retaliates when a snow golem accidentally hits it with a snowball.
Spider Cave Spider Yes Yes Iron golems always attack spiders and cave spiders on sight.
Strider Jockey Partial Partial Iron golems attack only the zombified piglin of a strider jockey, not the strider. The zombified piglin attacks the iron golem if another zombified piglin is attacked by the golem or if attacked. When the zombified piglin is angry at the golem, the strider moves toward the golem.
Vex Yes Partial It attacks the iron golem rarely when the vex is nearby by the iron golem. It attacks immediately when an evoker summons three vexes.
Evoker Illusioner[unused mob][Java Edition only] Pillager Ravager Vindicator Yes Yes Iron golems attack unarmed pillagers, despite them being passive in Java Edition. All other illagers attack the iron golem on sight and the iron golem also attacks them on sight.
Witch Yes Yes‌[BE only]
Partial‌[JE only]
Attack iron golems if patrolling in an illager patrol or iron golem attacking one witch. The witch throws splash potions of Poison or Harming when an iron golem attacks the witch.‌[JE only] Witches always attack iron golems in Bedrock Edition.
Wither Yes Yes Iron golems always attack withers, even when the wither is generating health after being summoned, while the golem attacks do no damage to the wither.
Wolf (tamed) When attacked In defense of owner Tamed wolves attack the iron golem if it attacks its owner, or the owner attacks the golem. When attacked by the wolf, the golem retaliates. The player-built iron golem attacks the player's wolves if attacked by the wolf.
Zombie Husk Zombie Villager Yes Yes The zombie and its variants attack iron golems like they attack villagers.
Zombified Piglin Yes When attacked, group retaliates They attack if an iron golem attacks one zombified piglin.
Zoglin Yes Yes Unlike hoglins, a group does not attack the golem if the golem attacks one zoglin.
All other mobs No No

An iron golem looks down at a husk, but cannot attack the husk.

A naturally-spawned iron golem knows where raiding illager locations are from behind solid walls and from underground and attempts to move toward them. An iron golem created by the player or summoned by a command cannot detect raiders through obstructions. Iron golems also looks down or looks up if the hostile mob is above or below the iron golem.

Being attacked[]

Zombies (and variants), zoglins, skeletons (and variants), spiders, cave spiders, slimes, magma cubes, withers, and illagers naturally attack iron golems on sight and may cause major damage, especially if the mobs attack in groups. In Bedrock Edition, silverfish and witches may naturally attack it too.

In Java Edition, iron golems have 100% knockback resistance from normal attacks. They can still be knocked back by the Knockback enchantment on swords and the Punch enchantment on bows. In Bedrock Edition, the Knockback or Punch enchantments have no effect on iron golems, as it only hurts the iron golem.

Cracking[]

Information icon.svg
This feature is exclusive to Java Edition. 

Iron golems have different stages of being cracked to show their health. When their health is above 74♥ × 37, some cracks become visible. When their health is between 50♥ × 25 and 74♥ × 37, a few more cracks appear. When their health is between 25♥ × 12.5 and 49♥ × 24.5, they appear more cracked. When their health is lower than 25♥ × 12.5, many cracks are visible.

Healing[]

Trivia[]

Robot from Laputa: Castle in the Sky

  • The iron golem's holding out flowers to villagers is a reference to the ancient robots in Hayao Miyazaki's animated film Laputa: Castle in the Sky.[5] When baby villagers notice the poppy in its hand, they slowly approach, and take the flower eventually.[2] Iron golems do not actually pick up poppies; they spawn them in their hands.
  • Iron golems do not get into boats or minecarts on their own, although in Bedrock Edition, pushing a minecart on rails into a golem forces it into the minecart.
  • It is possible for an enderman to cause an iron golem to spawn by placing a pumpkin in the correct position on an arrangement of iron blocks previously placed by the player.
  • The iron golem is a purchasable avatar item on the Xbox 360 Marketplace.
  • Iron golems can attack pillagers (with no weapon) and giants with no amount of damage inflicted from either mob at all. They are the only two mobs to have that distinction.
  • It is impossible to spawn an iron golem holding a poppy using a command (such as summon or data). Its NBT matches with a naturally generated golem (HandItems:[{id:"minecraft:poppy",Count:1b},{}]), but does not visually update.
