Original Castlevania lore


Iron Golems are enemies in the Castlevania series. They are man-like figures made of iron and animated by a powerful magic spell. They are extremely tough, with no known weaknesses.

AppearancesEdit

Castlevania: Circle of the MoonEdit

The Iron Golem is the third boss in Circle of the Moon and guards the main machine room at the top of the Machine Tower. It will advance slowly and stop to pound the ground after a few steps, releasing with this some gears to fall from the ceiling. Getting too close will make it punch Nathan. Occasionally, its body will glow for a moment and power up all of its attacks. During this period, more gears are released after it pounds the ground and its punch will fire an exploding spark that causes massive damage; it will start healing itself afterward.

The Crucifix sub-weapon and a DSS combination that raises STR, like Venus + Salamander, are recommended for this fight. Start by activating DSS and then proceed to hurl crucifixes in a way that they slow down and stay over the golem the most time possible while making their way back. Spin the whip in order to destroy any falling gears if necessary.

Once defeated, the player will have accesss to a room holding the Kick Boots.

Castlevania: Aria of SorrowEdit

In Aria of Sorrow, the Iron Golem has 9,999 HP and its defense is so high that all attacks will only do 1-2 HP of damage. Since even the Valmanway would take an impractically long time to kill it, it is fairly clear it requires unconventional tactics to defeat. Luckily, its hidden weakness is having just 1 MP; therefore, using the Killer Mantle's soul, Astral Veil, will swap its 9,999 HP with its 1 MP while simultaneously delivering 1 HP of damage, killing it in one hit.

As the other golem enemies, its attacks are kicking rocks and throwing punches, although its version is punching downward. It moves slowly and is unaffected by the Time Stop ability.

Castlevania: Dawn of SorrowEdit

As with the Iron Golem in Aria of Sorrow, this version also takes 1 HP of damage per hit. However, this time around, its health has been reduced to 50 HP and there's no ability in the game that can destroy it in one hit.

Its attacks are a punch, a kick, and the ability to breath fire. To defeat it easily, use the Puppet Master's, Bone Ark's, or Bat Company's soul to get behind it, as it is not able to turn around, and it also won't be able to damage Soma if he stands right up the wall.

Because the strength of the weapon is irrelevant, it's recommended to use a weapon that attacks rapidly, such as the Cutall, the Kaiser Knuckle, or the Nunchakus. It's also recommended to equip the Dead Pirate's soul, Backstab, which allows Soma to deliver twice the damage if attacking from behind, dealing 2 damage per hit instead of 1.

Another strategy is to use the Imp's bullet soul, which converts all damage dealt to MP damage during its timer. The Iron Golem dies when it reaches 0 MP, so the player can activate the soul twice and use the Handgun to stay at a safe distance while picking the monster off.

Castlevania: Portrait of RuinEdit

In Portrait of Ruin, only two Iron Golems appear in the game, both in the Nest of Evil. Its defenses have been reduced notoriously compared to its previous incarnations, although it still retains its fire breath, kick, and arm thrust attacks.

Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirthEdit

It has fairly low health and defense compared to its previous incarnations, but after being defeated, rather than disappearing, it slumps forward and can still damage Christopher if he lands on it or he walks into the monster. The Iron Golem's lifeless body can be destroyed to clear a path, however.
