This technique allows the user to create a large, humanoid creature composed of rock that can either be expelled from the user's mouth or formed from a nearby, pre-existing source of earth.
The size of the golem differs depending on use, but it always possesses an ample amount of brute strength, being able to bite and tear through a White Zetsu clone with ease, using just its mouth and hands respectively. It is also very durable, as it was left almost completely intact after being hit by a powerful explosion, detonating at point-blank range. This makes the golem ideal whether it be serving as additional support or simply as a mobile shield.
The golem can be formed in an instant, as demonstrated by Ōnoki, who, during the Fourth Shinobi World War, formed a golem beneath Gaara's Shield of Sand to help shield from Madara Uchiha's Susanoo's Yasaka Magatama.
- While in the manga this technique is only described as Rock Golem (岩のゴーレム, Iwa no Gōremu), it is explicitly named in Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations.
- Similar to many techniques from Kumogakure, the game name for this technique has an English word given kanji that somewhat matches its pronunciation.
