How to make an Iron Golem in Minecraft and what they're For

Create a Minecraft Iron Golem to defend the village and its inhabitants from any threats. These imposing guards are the ideal way to defend structures and villagers from hostile mobs in Minecraft (opens in new tab) including zombies, skeletons or even raids from villagers. Unlike pretty much every other mob in Minecraft Iron Golems can be made, but they also appear naturally in villages. If you've discovered a village that isn't protected by security measure in the form of a Minecraft Iron Golem, here's the information you must know about creating them and how they work.

How to make an Iron Golem from Minecraft

To create a Minecraft Iron Golem, you don't require a Crafting Table as you would to make most things in the game. Instead, you'll need to place blocks in a certain order.

The materials you will need to make one Iron Golem are four Iron Blocks (each one made up of nine iron ingots on a Crafting Table), and one pumpkin - in Java Edition, it must be a Carved Pumpkin or a Jack O'Lantern, but in Bedrock Edition, it can be a regular pumpkin. To make it look like a scarecrow made of iron, place the Iron Blocks into an X shape, and then put the Pumpkin in the middle. Use the above picture for inspiration!

If there is no connecting blocks (other than the floor it was placed on) then placing the Pumpkin last will trigger an Iron Golem spawn. If you have the right materials you're able to do this as many times as you want to build your own personal army.

Iron Golems are solemnly sworn to protect players and villagers, provided you don't attack them. They are neutral and will not attack you if they attack you.

If an Iron Golem is created inside a village it will slowly wander through the area, scouting for. If it's not within a village , it will make its way to the nearest one, fighting any hostile mobs on its way. An Iron Ingot can be used to heal an Iron Golem that has taken the brunt of damage.

If you've got enough Iron and have a base or village you'd like to protect, Iron Golems are the way forward. They can't be named as you can with normal pets Unfortunately. You may want to learn how to manage the fox in Minecraft in case you'd like to get to have a pet.
