Glacial golem

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Glacial golem is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, first appearing in Dragon Quest X. It is a golem constructed from ice blocks instead of clay bricks.


Glacial golems have a near identical appearance to their earthier cousins, being constructs made out of carved blocks of solid ice in various shades of blue and white, their only other distinguishing feature being the two glowing eyes on their faces. They typically only appear in the wintry regions in order to prevent their icy bodies from melting. Adventurers can exploit this weakness by burning them down with fire magic. The Glacial golem can also bamboozle potential attackers by disguising themselves as a pile of ice bricks or even whole igloos.


Dragon Quest X[edit]

First appearing as a boss from the start of Version 2 onwards, it is fought alongside 2 Cavorting columns.
