Ghom was a powerful demon in service of Azmodan. Like all demons, he fought the forces of [[Heaven]] in the [[Great Conflict]]. Ghom once devoured six angels in a single swallow - spears included.

On [[Sanctuary]], Ghom was faced with a new enemy&mdash;humanity, specifically those serving at [[Bastion's Keep]]. He was among Azmodan's forces that laid siege to the fortress. When Azmodan's infernal siege engines breached the Keep's walls, Ghom was sent forth to spearhead the assault from within the Keep. However, a small band of heroes, under the command of Tyrael, defeated his minions on the way to the larder, and successfully dispatched the Lord of Gluttony, preventing Azmodan from achieving victory from below the keep.<ref name = "D3A3">''[[Diablo III]]'', ''[[Act III (Diablo III)|Act III]]''</ref> Before he died, however, Ghom had spoiled all of the fortress's stored food.

Ghom features as a minor [[bosses|boss]] in [[Act III (Diablo III)|Act III]] of ''[[Diablo III]]''. He is involved in the breaching quest. Players should be careful of his bite attack, the little slimes he spits forth and the gas attack.
   
The combat takes place in [[The Larder]], in a relatively large room with four indestructible pillars. There are no objects in it, save for the Half-Eaten Guard which drops a lore book called [[Ghom's Log]]. After passing the iron gate, the combat starts after a short cutscene.

For his size, the Lord of Gluttony moves surprisingly quickly, but his attacks (except for Gas Cloud) are very slow. Ghom has a total of four attacks:
*'''Gas Cloud''': the main weapon, and the one most likely to cause the player's death. This creates two clouds of gas (one at the player's location, and one above Ghom) dealing average [[Poison]] damage over time, and the damage of each cloud grows as the player is standing in it. The cloud, once placed, holds for 1 minute, does not move and does not grow in size. Multiple clouds intersecting with each other do not stack. If Ghom is not killed quickly, he can fill the entire room with his gas clouds, but with very careful positioning, one can make them despawn faster than they are filling the free room space. After Ghom's death, his clouds deal no damage.

*'''Gas Cloud''': the main weapon, and the one most likely to cause the player's death. This creates two clouds of gas (one at the player's location, and one above Ghom) dealing average Poison damage over time (though not overpowering; with good self-healing and Poison resistance, a hero can withstand this, even for a long time). The cloud, once placed, holds for 1 minute, does not move and does not grow in size. Multiple clouds intersecting with each other do not stack. If Ghom is not killed quickly, he can fill the entire room with his gas clouds, but with very careful positioning, one can make them despawn faster than they are filling the free room space. After Ghom's death, all clouds despawn shortly, but only in his canonical fight: his Uber appearance, [[Voracity|Rift Guardian]] appearance, and [[Cursed Chest]] appearance all despawn their clouds normally, with no regard to whether he lives or dies.
*'''Bile Spew''': sprays players in a mid-range cone in front of Ghom with acid, dealing high Poison damage over 2 seconds.

*'''Bile Spew''': sprays players in a mid-range cone in front of Ghom with acid, dealing average Poison damage.
*'''Slime''': a long-range attack that deals slight Poison damage and spawns two Slimes on enemies hit that continuously attack the player. Once both are killed, they drop a guaranteed [[Health Globe]]. This attack is used with no regards as to whether a foe is in melee range.

[[File:Ghom_Portrait.png|thumb|Ghom's in-game portrait which is of his head]]Having a [[Mara's Kaleidoscope (Diablo III)|Mara's Kaleidoscope]] equipped will trivialize the encounters with Ghom; the clouds are weak and, as mentioned above, do not stack if more clouds occupy the same location. It will add insult to injury when the poison ''heals'' [[the Nephalem]] as the result of having equipped the above mentioned amulet.

Having a [[Mara's Kaleidoscope (Diablo III)|Mara's Kaleidoscope]] equipped will trivialize the encounters with Ghom more so than they already may be; the clouds are weak and, as mentioned above, do not stack if more clouds occupy the same location. It will be added insult to injury when the poison ''heals'' the Nephalem as the result of having equipped the above mentioned amulet.
   
On [[Torment]] difficulty, Ghom has a hard enrage timer of 4 minutes. Once the time is up, he no longer has a [[cooldown]] on his Gas cloud, and existing clouds no longer despawn. However, for an adequately geared player, most of the room (if not the entire room) will be filled with gas long before that timer expires, so positioning and slow retreating from Ghom is advised if defenses are not up to par. However, since his damage does not increase, it is still possible to kill him after the enrage.<ref name = "D3A3"/>

[[Voracity]] is the [[Rift Guardian]] variant of Ghom.
 
 
'''The Foul Desecrator, Gaping Maw of Hell''' is a Uber variant of Ghom, only encountered during the [[Infernal Machine]] event.
 
 
[[The Stomach]] is a non-combat pet (modeled after Ghom) available to players.

==Personality and Traits==
[[File:GHOM.jpg|thumb|In-game model]]"Lord of Gluttony" is a title Ghom lives up to. Ghom's hunger is his signature weapon. He has four mouths: one (largest) on his torso, two that act as a pair of spaulders and, apparently, one more under his helmet on his head. Whenever he speaks, flatulences and licking of lips are heard. He attacks with a rather foul smelling gas, a putrid vomit attack and a bone crushing snap bite, but according to Deckard Cain, he also uses his bile and 'other substances' in combat. Ghom is also very sadistic, even for a demon, as he prefers eating his victims alive, tearing the flesh from their bones very slowly, and likes humans to be served to him purposefully overfed ('stuffed', as Ghom himself calls it) with the fresh meat of their dead comrades.<ref name = "D3A3"/>
