The Golem is a major enemy in Bayonetta. It appears to be a large ball made of square, interlocking blocks (like Legoes) which can be rearranged to take many different forms, all of which resembling Bayonetta's own Infernal Demons. The player only encounters two of them, it's main ability is shape-shifting and it's only weakness is it's core, which becomes exposed when it changes forms. Upon beating a Golem and summoning an Infernal Demon, several sets of large hands appear to play volley-ball with it, making a noise similar to that of a volley-ball being rallied, suggesting the Golem's main form to be hollow. One set of hands flubs a return, and all hands begin to pummel the Golem.
Hierarchy of LagunaEdit
Long ago, to protect their homeland from invasion, the Umbra and Lumen came together to develop a giant weapon. Only the Lumen and Umbra knew the secrets to controlling its enormous form, causing it to transform into monsters capable of attacking foes.
The Golem, as they called it, would become more powerful in accordance to its master's strength. The Golem's control center is its core, which receives the orders of its master. It is the weaker point of the device; however, no weapon is capable of destroying it.
Numerous Golems were constructed in case of war, but were secreted away in another dimension. Now, even 500 years after the two clans' destruction, Golems remain hidden away, still under their master's orders.
Curtain walls are in fact a type of a Golem, according to Hideki Kamiya.
The red sphere inside it is its main weak spot.
It is possible to use a Wicked Weave to stun the Golem when it is in it's original shape, that of a ball.
If you do enough damage to its shell (that is, make all the green blocks of its shell yellow), it will be stunned and vulnerable. But watch the pieces, when it reforms, it'll do a lot of damage if you're too close to the core.
It bears a strong resemblance to Yami, the final boss of Okami, in its design.Golem's forms looks a lot of like the Infernal Demons: Madama Butterfly/Styx (hands), Gomorrah, Malphas, Scolopendra and Phantasmaraneae.
