Diamond golems are construct humanoid monsters in ADOM. They are very dangerous late-game monsters that have very high PV and resist all magical attacks except magic missiles. Additionally, their attacks are not only very strong and accurate but always penetrate armor, making them dangerous to take on in melee even for powerful late-game PCs. Very powerful (and preferably construct slaying) missiles seem like the optimal solution to defeating these monsters; otherwise, be armed with a very powerful melee weapon and make sure to monitor the PC's HP carefully.

Light reflects off the many glinting surfaces of the thing standing before you. Priceless diamonds cover it from head to toe. Its eyes glow red with alien hatred and malevolence. Moving silently, with a clear purpose, it advances towards you.
