Since I probably won't get any replies anyhow (maybe from E because he uses Golem), I just decided to keep this info here, in case I use it in the future.
Been fooling around with Golem since he and Dracula are considered the most simple characters to get into due to lack of depth. Well my opinion Golem isn't really any good and I consider him more of a handicap than anything (might be fun for you if you like a challenge). Basically if you can win with Golem, your opponent pretty much sucks in terms of skills compared to you. It's like using Dan and beating someone's Ryu in SF IV. His subweapons selection is also considered bad. He is able to Axe, Poisonus Blow, Magic Circle, Earth Spike and Stopwatch. I'm going to cut out knives and axes since I consider them a true waste of a subweapon. In my opinion, the best would be stopwatch (obviously, anyone with a stopwatch is considered great) or as a backup subweapon, Poisonus Blow. I don't consider Earth Spike any good considering that you're better off finishing a combo with your normal attacks since it doesn't use up hearts and even though Earth Spike is made for juggling, Golem is just too slow to connect anything after it. Charged Earth Spike might be useful due to the fact it surrounds you with spikes for those pesky agility characters running around you. As far as I know, there is only one way to combo into the stopwatch and that's from a B, AB, stopwatch. For some odd reason, using a subweapon from that combo makes you use it in the air. What options do you have after the stopwatch? Hyper. If you don't have a Hyper, then you can do a B, AB, stopwatch, lever B, lever B, AB, L B.
Now lets compare Golem to other characters that makes us realize why Golem isn't as good as some people tend to believe. Golem does alot of damage from his combos. While true, other characters can do just as much as him, like Eric. The only difference is that you just have to put in a bit more effort to get that damage from other characters while for Golem, a simple 2-3 hit combo does the same. Golem is slow. Other characters are faster while being able to do as much damage as Golem. Only thing that makes Golem not exactly trash is his roll and jumps which is fast. His Unblockable Guard is also one of the best, considering that it's almost instant (just like Aeon's). This will make opponents to stop underestimating Golem since they will have to react fast enough or else they're gonna get thrown.
In the end, nothing is more humilating than beating your opponent with Golem. It also shows you're at a different level when it comes to skills considering that alot of other characters can do what Golem can do, just better. I wouldn't say Golem is bad, but when compared to others, he is bad. At best, he would be average in terms of tiers.
P.S. There's a bit more I need to add, like ability to guardcrush and junk.
