Minecraft Dungeons:Tempest Golem
The Tempest Golem is a colossal golem-like mob. It is made of stone, has a golden back, and has windmill-like poles. Its head is square with a purple stud on its forehead, small eyes, and a big jaw. Jade banners can be seen hanging below the Golem's chin, and its front body possesses intricate etched lines and 4 jade blocks on each end of its body. Both of its arms possess giant gold swords with purple stripes going down the middle, plus its forearms are larger than its upper arms. The Tempest Golem also has a large purple button on its chest, which is covered by two jade-colored panels with a swirl symbol on them. These two panels are considered its shield, and it protects its large button with them, where the shard could be located. The golem appears to be 10 to 12 blocks tall (20 to 24 blocks tall in the artwork), which would make it the tallest boss or mob in the game.
The golem sits in the Gale sanctum building a huge storm that will kill all life in the overworld, which the player must stop. After making it to the Tempest chamber where the tempest golem resides, the player activates the 2 wind pillars, which awakens the golem. After deactivating the pillars and damaging the golem several times, the shard will shatter, therefore destroying the golem, stopping the building storm and ending the Howling Peaks story.
The Tempest Golem never moves from where it spawned, always remaining immobile similar to the Corrupted Cauldron. It has 4 different attacks. Additionally, attacking the stone pillars to deactivate the arms causes the Tempest Golem to become stunned, unable to attack or move for a few seconds. It also loses defense while stunned.
These attack names are conjectural; official names have not been established.
- Golem Blades
If a player goes to either side of the Tempest Golem, it will smash the ground with one of it's sword arms, creating a small shockwave around it and deal some or a bit of damage to the player.
- Golem Shields
If a player goes in front of the Tempest Golem's body, it will quickly open its two shield panels, dealing little damage and knocking them away. It then closes them shortly after.
- Golem Bolt
Occasionally, the Tempest Golem summons a lightning bolt to attack a player. This is signified by a blue square on the ground which follows the player for 5 seconds. After 5 seconds, lightning will strike down on that square, dealing heavy damage.
- Awaken Squall Golems
After the Tempest Golem is stunned and gets back up, two random Squall Golems from the back of the area will awaken and attack the player.

- The Tempest Golem is the first DLC boss that does not use a theme owned by another boss and has its own track, as the Jungle Abomination and Wretched Wraith use the Corrupted Cauldron’s theme and the Illusioner uses the Evoker’s theme.
- The Tempest Golem's origin is still unknown as Mojang Studios never revealed a precise origin of the Tempest Golem along with the other two DLC bosses that have been corrupted by the shard.
- While the Tempest Golem doesn't have the most health of all bosses, it can last longer than any other mob or boss in the game if it never gets stunned.
- The Tempest Golem's melee, shield, and lightning attacks can knock away other mobs, but not damage them.
- Being corrupted by the Orb of dominance's shard doesn't make the Tempest Golem's attacks stronger. In fact, all of its 3 attacks deals less damage than the Squall Golem.
- Like the Jungle Abomination and the Wretched Wraith, the Tempest Golem emits powerful roars to create ambushes to stop the player. Unlike the other two, the Tempest Golem does not create ambushes on its own Level, but it does create ambushes in Colossal Rampart.
- It is the only DLC boss that can be enchanted by the Enchanter, increasing its size from 12 to 15 blocks when enchanted.
- In the Artwork, The Tempest golem has a slightly different appearance. It is lighter and shinier, and has smaller pink pupils, a more bluish body, and shorter eyebrows.
