Iron golem is a type of monster in ADOM. In keeping with the natural order of materials, iron golems are stronger than stone golems but weaker than steel golems. Like steel golems they have a fire breath attack, are immune to fire attacks, and are highly vulnerable to shock attacks. It is also possible to deal damage to an iron golem by throwing a potion of water at it.

This monstrous construct has been molded from pieces of cast iron, like a monstrous marionette. Its joints squeak rustily as it walks.
