This article is about the Hardmode Cavern enemy. For the post-Plantera boss, see Golem. For the rare, resilient enemy from the Snow biome, see Ice Golem. For the enemy found in Granite Caves, see Granite Golem.

The Rock Golem is a powerful Hardmode enemy that spawns in the Cavern layer. It throws rocks at players that are out of contact range.

When being attacked, it continues to attack, making stun-lock options unusable.


  • The Rock Golem can only spawn on Stone Blocks. It will never spawn in the Ice biome, even if there are Stone Blocks present.[1]


  • The Rock Golem and Gem trees are the only renewable sources of Stone Blocks in a world.
  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Rock Golem: "Dense-minded living stone formation. Awaits weary cavern dwellers to pound them into juicy rubble."


  • Desktop 1.4.4:
    • Now throw rocks less frequently and the rocks move a little slower as well.
    • Spawn rate reduced, and base money drop value reduced from 5 GC to 2 GC50 SC. Rock Golem Head drops twice as often (1/10 (10%) chance instead of 1/20 (5%)) to account for the rarity change.
  • Desktop 1.4.1: Fixed an issue where the Rock Golem's projectile damage scaled twice, resulting in it doing far more than it should have, especially in Expert/Master.
