Golem enemy line

From Golden Sun Universe
Jump to: navigation, search

The Golem, Earth Golem, and Grand Golem are enemies that are randomly battled in Golden Sun and Golden Sun: The Lost Age. These monsters, resembling lumbering humanoids comprised of rock and mud, are palette-swapped variants of each other that have differing levels of power and defense and are fought in different locations in the games.

In Golden Sun and Golden Sun: The Lost Age[edit]

Golem[edit]

A Golem (マッドゴーレム Mud Golem) is a brownish-orange variant with light green eyes, and it is level 18 in Golden Sun and level 25 in The Lost Age. In Golden Sun, it is battled only throughout Altmiller Cave. In The Lost Age, it is battled throughout Gaia Rock.

In the first game, while it has the lowest Agility rating and doesn't have good Defense among the monsters it is fought alongside, it has high HP and its attacks can be quite damaging to anyone that has low Venus resistance. The Dread Hound perhaps is more threatening to the party in general. In the second game, it is one of the tougher monsters in the exterior portion of Gaia Rock, but in the interior is outperformed by the aforementioned Dread Hound as well as the Wood Walker.

Earth Golem[edit]

An Earth Golem (アースゴーレム) is a light green variant with vaguely violet eyes, and it is level 23 in Golden Sun and level 31 in The Lost Age. In Golden Sun, it is battled throughout Suhalla Gate, and subsequently throughout the earlier "exit" portion of Venus Lighthouse. In The Lost Age, it is battled only throughout the earlier portion of Treasure Isle.

In the first game, while it is the slowest monster, it is both the sturdiest monster and the one with the strongest offensive setup in wherever it is fought, and its chance to instantly reduce an Adept's HP to 1 can make it quite dangerous. Its rare drop is highly powerful and desirable at that point in the game, where if you get one, it would be a direct upgrade to the Dragon Axe that one of your Adepts might be equipped with, and a weapon even stronger than the weapon Artifacts sold in the upcoming "final town" of Lalivero. So, this monster is popular for Random Number Generator abuse. In the second game, it is only outperformed by the Turtle Dragon, but the area it can be fought in is accessible as soon as you gain the ability to sail the Great Eastern Sea relatively early in the game. It may be worth trying to get a Giant Axe from this monster in this game too, but the weapon would be outperformed by the Tartarus Axe dropped by the Minotaurus, so you should focus on getting that instead.

An Earth Golem's statistics are as follows:

Earth Golem 298 0 299 114 70 5

Deals a Venus-aligned standard physical attack with 60 damage points added to the end result, and if the target is not downed by this attack, there is a chance the target's current HP will be reduced to 1.

Grand Golem[edit]

Grand Golem.png

A Grand Golem (グランドゴーレム) is a violet level 28 variant with vaguely light blue eyes. In Golden Sun, it is battled in the later "dungeon" portion of Venus Lighthouse as one of the "final" random monsters of the game.

The Grand Golem is the most physically powerful and sturdy random monster in Venus Lighthouse and, by extension, the original Golden Sun. Even though it is the slowest of the monsters there, it can be quite damaging and comparatively time-consuming to take down for an inadequately leveled and equipped party. While its rare drop is often the target for Random Number Generator abuse, the Zodiac Wand is usually not compared favorably to the other equipment many would label the "best" for each Adept, and is often sold for coins.

A Grand Golem's statistics are as follows:

Name HP PP Attack Defense Agility Luck
Grand Golem 476 0 367 149 80 5
