The Guardian Golem is a Master Mode-exclusive light pet dropped by the Golem with a 25*1/4 (25%) chance. Upon being used or equipped, it summons a Toy Golem light pet.


  • The phrase in the Guardian Golem's tooltip, "Power cells not included", is a nod to how most battery-powered toys in commercials and advertisements state a similar warning for "batteries not included", and alludes to how Golem is summoned with Lihzahrd Power Cells.
  • The buff's tooltip is a reference to the song Living Doll written by Lionel Bart for Cliff Richard and The Shadows (then still known as "the Drifters") in 1959. The original lyrics were: "Got myself a cryin', talkin', sleepin', walkin', livin' doll". The tooltip simply replaces "doll" with "idol", as Golem is the Lihzahrdian Idol.
  • When summoned, the pet will always attempt to position itself in front of the player. This is likely because it is meant to act as a guardian, hence the name of the item.
