Stone golem is a type of monster in ADOM. They are humanoid constructs that are immune to acid and cold attacks, can see in darkness, and can see invisible PCs. Two stone golems are guaranteed to be generated in each game, one on top of the artifact Moon Sickle somewhere in the Caverns of chaos, and another on top of the Tome of donors found somewhere in the moldy dungeon. Many more appear in some parts of the Earth Temple.

Like other creatures of stone, stone golems can be damaged by either zapping a wand of digging or casting the Mystic Shovel spell at them. Pick axes and the unpick axe will always score critical hits against them.

A roughly humanoid creation of various rocks and stone types, these usually pummel their opponents from above, being taller than most humanoids, using the weight of their limbs against their opponents with crushing effectiveness.
