Snow Golems are major protagonists from the video game Minecraft. They are utility mobs that attack hostile mobs with only 0 damage. However, they can be used by the player to be just their normal companion, or a distraction to the hostile mobs in order for the player to defeat the hostile mobs easily. They can be created by the player by placing a two-height snow blocks with a pumpkin on top. They were added in the game's full release back in 2011, and were considered as the original "iron golems".
