KEY GOLEM – You'll find these cute little mobs hiding throughout the world. You must carry them on your back to a locked door, as they're too afraid to go alone. If you take damage while carrying one, it will scurry back to where you found it.

Guide to Minecraft Dungeons:
A Handbook for Heroes

A key golem is a small passive mob in Minecraft Dungeons that helps the hero to unlock certain doors upon collection.

Appearance[]

A gold key golem is a small golden golem resembling a key with a small face and legs.

Spawning[]

Behavior[]

If the hero reaches a locked door while wearing a key golem, it disappears, the lock turns yellow, and the door opens.

The key golem can be picked up by certain mobs. If the mob gets killed, the key golem returns to the closest rug.

When hit with a weapon enchanted with Exploding, an explosion is triggered where the key golem was hit.

Sleeping

Key golems start off asleep.

Alert

When the hero approaches a key golem, it wakes up.

Run

Key golems attempts to evade the hero in any way that it can. The hero must hit it to collect it, at which point it gets strapped to the hero's back.

Panic

Key golems squirm and yell in fear while on the hero's back. If the hero is damaged while wearing the key golem, the key golem escapes and flees back to its original location, but if another entity hits it, that entity gets the key golem on its back.
