First Appearance

Update 0.12.1

Iron Golems are of the Neutral Mobs that were added in Update 0.12.1 alongside Snow Golems. They are powerful Mobs that attack Hostile Mobs to protect Villagers or the Player.


An Iron Golem will spawn if there are at least 10 Villagers and 21 Wooden Doors in a Village. If the population of the Village is doubled, another Iron Golem will spawn. They can also be created manually by the Player by placing 4 Blocks of Iron in a T-Shape and placing a Pumpkin on top. Jack O'Lanterns also work.

The Pumpkin or Jack O'Lantern must be placed last in order to create an Iron Golem.


Iron Golems attack all Hostile Mobs except Creepers or Ghasts. If in a Village, an Iron Golem will not walk away from the Village because if it walks out of the Village "boundaries" then its Mob AI will take it back to the center of the Village.

The natural role of Iron Golems are to protect Villagers, but since they are Neutral they'll not attack the Player unless the Player has very low popularity, attacks the Villagers, or attacks the Iron Golems.

Occasionally, Iron Golems will give Baby Villagers a Poppy, which is why they drop Poppies when killed. Iron Golems don't take fall damage, and don't drown even if fully submerged under Water.


  • When the Iron Golem attacks a Mob, the Mob will be knocked into the air.
    • This can indirectly kill the Mob by fall damage.
    • This may also cause Mobs to fly over Fences.
  • Iron Golems currently have the third highest Health of all Mobs in Minecraft PE, the second being the Ender Dragon, and the first being the Wither.
  • Easter Egg: An Iron Golem's behavior of giving a Flower to a Baby Villager is a reference from an animated film called "Laputa: Castle In The Sky."
  • Looting Enchantments on Swords do not affect the amount of drops from Iron Golems.
