The Golem is a giant lava monster that was controlled by Malefor during the three years that Spyro, Cynder and Sparx were trapped in the Time Crystal. It is the first major enemy that they have encountered, and made its debut and only appearance as the secondary antagonist in The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon.
The Golem can scale buildings with the use of its spider-like legs. It can also whip away Spyro and Cynder, as well as other enemies, with its tail, breathe a blast of fire to simply push you away, use its fists to crush you, regenerate missing limbs (as when he used the rubble of Dragon City to build a new hand), and when in desperate need, shoots fireballs from the top of its head. Another ability is that sometimes, when you have to press certain buttons to proceed, the Golem may eat or crush Spyro and Cynder, causing a death scene.
After being released from their three-year slumber, Spyro and Cynder were magically chained together by Grublins, intended to be sacrificed to the Golem in the Catacombs under Malefor's orders. They apparently woke up too soon and the Golem's attempts to subdue them failed, resulting in them being able to escape and destroying one of the Golem's hands in the process.
The Golem later played a major part in Malefor's attack on the Dragon City of Warfang. After the siege engines had been destroyed, Malefor's army retreated as the Golem appeared to destroy the City. It emerged behind the city's walls from underground, smashing a wall as it did, and briefly stopped its rampage to create a new hand out of the debris. Cyril, Volteer, Terrador and Ignitus defended Spyro and Cynder from the Golem, but they soon were defeated. However, Ignitus showed Spyro and Cynder a small bump on the Golem's head by breathing fire on it, indicating that the main dark crystal that controls the monster is hidden underneath. Spyro and Cynder tore the bump off and destroyed the crystal inside. With the dark crystal destroyed, the Golem died as it fell off the building and hit the ground below.
- The Golem is the only boss in Dawn of the Dragon that causes the most death scenes to both Spyro and Cynder if the button pressing is done wrong.
- The Golem looks like the Balrog from The Lord of the Rings.
- The Golem also resembles Iblis from the Sonic the Hedgehog 2006 game.
- When the Golem falls off the side of the building, it resembles the last scene of the movie "King Kong".
