Where do Iron Golems Spawn in Minecraft?
Iron Golems naturally spawn in NPC Villages where the number of adult Villagers is at least 35% of the number of doors. However, when manually creating one in a Village with Villagers, a Golem will defend regardless of that ratio. An Iron Golem will also spawn in player-made Villages. If you attack a Villager when there is an Iron Golem around, it will turn hostile toward you and any Wolves you might be travelling with. If you hit the Golem itself, it will also try to kill you.
How to Make an Iron Golem in Minecraft
To create an Iron Golem, place 4 blocks of Iron (requires 36 Iron Ingots) in a T-shape, standing upright. Place a Pumpkin / Jack-O-Lantern on the top of the T after creating it. For it to work the first time, the Pumpkin is usually placed last.
Iron Golem Drops
When killed, an Iron Golem has a chance to drop 3-5 Iron Ingots as well as 0-2 Roses.
- Iron Golems are now found in Pocket Edition.
- When Iron Golems hold out roses, it is actually a referenc to an animated film called Luputa: Castle in the Sky in which a robot covered in moss gives two children a rose.

Introduction: Making Golems in Minecraft
Minecraft Golems can help you attack and defend against enemies. There are two types: Snow Golems and Iron Golems.
Step 1: Tether and Lead
Golems tend to just wander around. To keep them nearby you can either lead them around with a lead, tether them to a post with a lead or even block them in with a fence.
* Be careful about putting them next to each other as the Iron Golem can hit anything nearby and will kill your Snow Golems with 1 hit. It is better to keep them away from each other.
- 4 Snowballs = 1 Block of Snow
9 Iron Ingots = 1 Iron Block
Step 2: Snow Golem
Facts about Snow Golems
- Create by stacking 2 Snow Blocks with 1 Pumpkin on top
- Will drop a few Snowballs when destroyed
- Leaves a trail of snow wherever it walks which can then be harvested for more snowballs
- Attacks enemies by throwing snowballs but this does not do any damage to them (except for Blazes but Snow Golems don't do well in the Nether), they mostly distract the monsters so you can attack and kill them
- Will be damaged by water, rain quickly kills it
- Take damage in hot biomes such as Deserts, Savannah, Jungles and Mesas
- Won't attack Creepers or hostile Wolves
Step 3: Iron Golem
Facts about Iron Golems
- Create by stacking 2 Iron Blocks and putting 1 Iron Block on either side of the top Iron Block, top it with a Pumpkin (made with a total of 4 Iron Blocks and 1 Pumpkin)
- Will only drop a few Iron Ingots and Poppies when killed
- Can appear naturally in Villages and will protect the Villagers, will stay near a village if natural spawned there or if you created one there
- Naturally occurring Iron Golems will attack you if you attack them
- Attacks by swinging their arms and hitting enemies
- Won't attack Creepers
- Can pick up, and will give, Poppies to Villagers

An iron golem is a large, strong neutralutility mob that defends players and villagers. It is one of the few mobs that can be built then spawned in the game.
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. 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 1⁄700 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.
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.
Main article: Tutorials/Defeating a pillager 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.

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, villagepopularity decreases by 10, affecting village iron golem behavior if the popularity ranges below -15[BE only].
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] 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 toward 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 toward 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.
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). With the exception of creepers, ghasts and goats (although they still can attack ghasts if close), they are provoked when attacked by any mobs, and by the presence of all monsters 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 mobs (including players) that can have hostile interactions with iron golems. The iron golem also attacks neutral mobs or hostile mobs that attack the player such as piglins or zombified piglins.
|Entity||Iron golem attacks the mob?||Attacks the iron golem?||Notes|
|Blaze||Yes||When attacked, group retaliates|
|Chicken Jockey||Partial||Partial||Only 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.
|Creeper||No||Accidentally||A nearby creeper explosion can still damage the golem.|
|Ender Dragon||Yes||Accidentally[verify]||When in near vicinity, iron golems try to attack the ender dragon, although they are rarely able to.|
|Enderman||Yes||When attacked||Unlike when a player looks at an iron golem, an enderman is not provoked by an iron golem looking at it.|
|Endermite||Yes||When attacked, group retaliates|
|Ghast||Partial||No||Iron golems do not seek or approach any ghast outside its attack range, but can attack ghasts that happen to approach within reach.|
|Giant [unused mob] [JE only]||Yes||No||Giants cannot move or attack due to lacking AI.|

|Magma Cube||Yes||Yes (except small-sized)[JE only]|
No (all[BE only] or small-sized[JE only])
|Piglin||Yes||When attacked, group retaliates||Iron golems also attack baby piglins, despite them being passive. Piglins also attack as a group if one piglin or piglin brute is attacked by an iron golem.|
|Piglin Brute||Yes||When attacked, group retaliates||Piglin brutes also attack as a group if one piglin or piglin brute is attacked by an iron golem.|
No (player-built, or in Peaceful difficulty)
|At player's discretion||A naturally-spawned iron golem or commands-spawned iron golem attacks the player if the player attacks the golem or a villager while playing in the Adventure and Survival mode.|
A naturally-spawned iron golem can also attack any nearby player who has -15 or lower popularity, or -100 or lower reputation with any nearby villager in a village.

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.
Zombies (and variants), zoglins, skeletons (and variants), silverfish[BE only], spiders, cave spiders, magma cubes[JE only], withers, illagers and witches[BE only] naturally attack iron golems on sight and may cause major damage, especially if the mobs attack in groups.
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.[Java Edition only]
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.
More than 75% of health remaining
More than 50% but no more than 75% of health remaining
More than 25% but no more than 50% of health remaining
No more than 25% of health remaining
In Java Edition, using an iron ingot on an iron golem restores its health by 25 × 12.5.

Like villagers, iron golems in Bedrock Edition use a strategy of pathfinding that prioritizes walking on certain "low-cost" blocks.
Iron Golems are neutral mobs that naturally generate in villages to protect villagers, or are built by players to protect their land from hostile mobs. To make an Iron Golem, place four iron blocks, one as a base and three across the top, and a carved pumpkin on the top middle iron block. They will patrol villages typically staying within villages. Its attack deals a lot of damage and will also launch its target into the air inflicting fall damage as well. If you manage to kill an iron golem, they will drop 3-5 iron ingots and 0-2 poppies.
There are many mobs in Minecraft and one of the most interesting mobs is the iron golem. These lumbering giants are neutral mobs that naturally generate in villages and protect villagers from hostile mobs. Their attacks are menacing and deal lots of damage while flinging their target into the air. Iron golems can be built by the player to create a sentry that can protect your land.
|50 full hearts||Passive if player created or on peaceful difficulty; Neutral if command generated or world generated; Hostile if player has more than -15 popularity in village||To mobs: 3.75 full hearts - 10.75 full hearts; To players (Peaceful): 0 but still performs attack animation; (Easy) : 2.5 full hearts to 6 full hearts; (Normal) 3.75 full hearts to 10.75 full hearts; (Hard) 5.5 full hearts to 16 full hearts||3-5 iron ingots; 0-2 poppies|
In the Java edition of Minecraft, villagers can summon iron golems if they are fleeing from hostile mobs or simply chatting with other villagers. The game will check a 16x13x16 box centered around the villager and make ten attempts to spawn a golem. The golem must have enough space to spawn checking air, water, or lava blocks to spawn in and a solid block to spawn on top of.
In the Bedrock edition of Minecraft, iron golems will spawn during world generation when a village is first generated. If the village has at least twenty beds and ten villagers, the game will attempt to spawn a golem in a 16x6x16 area around the village center. For golems to spawn in this village, 75% of villagers must have worked, every villager must be linked to a bed, and a player has to have the village in a loaded chunk. The game will attempt to spawn a golem every thirty five seconds.
The player can also spawn golems themselves. If you place four iron blocks, one as a base and three across the top, and a carved pumpkin on top middle iron block an iron golem will be summoned.
Placing the blocks in this formation will create an iron golem. The carved pumpkin must be placed last. You can also use shears on a regular pumpkin after placing the configuration, the pumpkin has to be interacted with last in order to spawn an iron golem.
Upon killing an iron golem they will drop 3-5 iron ingots and 0-2 poppies. Curiously, looting does not affect these drop rates.
Despite being a difficult mob to defeat, the iron golem will not drop any XP orbs.
Iron golems will patrol villages acting as a sentry to protect villagers. They will typically stay within villages and do not stray very far away from the edges of villages. Iron golems seem to be modeled after villagers with a similar large nose and forehead. Villagers and iron golems get along with each other and can be seen facing each other. Golems that spawn with a poppy in their hand can be seen offering the flowers to villagers.
If a golem is spawned with no village nearby, they will wander around until they eventually come across a village. In the Java edition of Minecraft, you can see their exterior begin to crack as they take more and more damage. You can give an iron golem an iron ingot to heal them in the Java edition.
Iron golems move slowly unless they are targeting a hostile mob. They will move quickly to neutralize the threat to their village.
An iron golem’s attack will deal a lot of damage and launch their target into the air which will inflict fall damage as well. Multiple golems attacking the same target will cause the target to launch even further into the air. If the player is hated by the village, with more than fifteen negative popularity points, the naturally generated golems of the village will attack the player on sight.
How to Tame an Iron Golem
Iron golems are neutral mobs and cannot be tamed. If the player creates an iron golem that golem will be passive towards the player and not attack him even if the player is hated by the village or if the player attacks the golem. Despite being neutral, they are more beneficial to keep around as they will target many hostile mobs on their own without provocation. Be careful if you want to attack an iron golem, they have 100% knockback resistance and will chase you relentlessly.
You can attach a lead to an iron golem to drag them around and keep them at a specific post.
In a way, player spawned golems are already tamed, but they will not follow the player like tamed wolves, cats, or parrots.
Iron golems holding poppies is in reference to Studio Ghibli’s Laputa: Castle in the Sky where the film showed iron robots handing children flowers.
How do you befriend an Iron Golem?
As long as your village popularity is higher than negative fifteen a golem will treat you normally. You can attempt to raise your popularity by trading with villagers, curing zombie villagers, or even standing in the village. A player created iron golem will forever be passive to that player.
Do Iron Golems stay with you?
Iron golems without a village will wander and attempt to find one. You can attach a lead to an iron golem so that they never stray too far away, or attach the golem to a fence post to ensure he does not wander too far. Alternatively you can create a village yourself and spawn iron golems that will stay in the village.
What to do if Iron Golem is mad at you?
Head inside a building and close the door. Stay in the village until your popularity begins to rise above negative fifteen and trade with villagers if you can to raise your popularity faster. This will prevent iron golems from targeting you. You can also abandon the village and iron golems will not chase you after you leave their line of sight.
Do Villagers get mad if you kill Iron Golems?
You do lose popularity in that village if you kill iron golems in that village. This will cause villager prices to be higher and if unpopular enough cause other iron golems to target the player on sight.
How many hits does it take to kill an Iron Golem?
Iron golems have fifty full hearts. In Bedrock edition a regular punch will deal one full heart and in the Java edition it will deal half a heart of damage. Using your fists in Bedrock edition will take fifty swings to kill an iron golem and one hundred in the Java edition.
