Ever get tired of plain old Iron Golems? So difficult to make, always look the same . . . Well, Extra Golems is here for you!

Now introducing 40 golems made from Minecraft blocks, ranging from wood and glass to diamond and nether brick. Each golem has unique properties, as described below. Have fun!

How to Use:  

Make a Golem Spell by combining 1 Feather, 1 Redstone, 1 Ink Sack, and 1 Paper in a crafting grid.

Make a Golem Head by combining a Golem Spell and a Pumpkin -- the block looks the same because all you did is stuff a magical paper inside:


To build a golem, start by placing blocks in a 'T' formation, similar to the Iron Golem layout. Finally, place a Golem Head on top. Once created, golems act like Iron Golems, killing monsters left and right and defending your fort / base / testificate prison.

Extra Golems 1.12.2-1.16.4 mod support

Built-In Mod Support


There are also separate addons to support the following mods (1.7.10 to 1.12.2):


If you want to make your own addon, visit the wiki to get started!

Config Settings:

You have the power to customize each golem's spawn permissions, health, and attack strength! Most entries look something like this:

   #Range: 1.0 ~ 999.0
   attack = 1.5
   #Range: 1.0 ~ 999.0
   health = 28.0
   #Disables in-world building of the golem.
   enabled = true
      #Whether this golem can give itself potion effects
      "Allow Special: Potion Effects" = true

Note: For Forge versions 1.14 through 1.16, the config file may be difficult to find. See this issue for directions.

Besides toggling special abilites, you can tweak the following golems:

  • Coral Golem: adjust how long it takes to "dry out"
  • Ice Golem: adjust range of "freezing" effect
  • Endstone Golem: turn on/off taking damage from water
  • Redstone Golem: adjust redstone power level (0 ~ 15)
  • Slimy Golem: adjust knockback power
  • Straw Golem: adjust how frequently to boost crops
  • Sponge Golem: adjust range and frequency of water-soaking
Other config options include the following:
  • Percent chance that villagers will summon Extra Golems (60% by default)
  • Golems can attack players (on by default)
  • Giving golems their building block will heal them (on by default)
  • Golems can be built using regular pumpkins (off by default)


If at all possible, please link to this mod's page instead of redistributing it.

If you must redistribute this mod (ie, download it and then upload it to any public storage other than Curse or CurseForge), do not use a paywall or mandatory ads to monetize it.

Ads are only permitted if a link to the Curse or CurseForge page is provided and no redistribution occurs.
