* In 2016 ''DOOM'', it is mentioned that the UAC exploited Hell in order solve a major energy crisis. Since the game is implied to follow the continuity of ''DOOM II'', it can be presumed that said energy crisis was the result of mankind having been driven from Earth and forced to quickly colonise new lebensraum, while suffering from a lack of preparation and resources.

* In 2016 Doom, the demons speak of a demon that created the armor for the Doom Walker. If one looks at Doom Walker's armor, it looks like a standard Space Marine Armor (Complete with production number and logos of manufactures). If this is the same armor that the demons speak of, why does it not look like some kind of demon armor. The reason, its a call back to DOOM 2. Rememer that [[spoiler: John Romero]] was the real enemy of the game, he even says (backwards) that you have to defeat him to win the game. He helped create the game in real life, and is an enemy in DOOM 2. He is the demon who created DOOM Slayer's armor because he made the game. Makes the Demons warning seem kind of meta when one thinks of it.

* Levels set on Earth become a lot more disturbing when your realize that the demons had to make Earth fit them. Meaning that they horribly scarred the land, and slaughtered hundreds, if not thousands of innocent civilians to make it that way. And who knows what kind of reality warping powers they used to turn the landscape into the... Abstractness we see. And well, they're [[DemonicPossessions demons.]]

* The reason why the original cover's demons are nowhere to be found in any of the games is because Doom Guy already exterminated them all. DOOM 2016 strongly hints towards this when [[spoiler:you find out that Doom Guy has been committing Demon Genocide since time immemorial, to the point where he used to wear medieval armor while doing so.]]

* The fight against the Cyberdemon at the end of Doom 3 is a call back to the final boss at the end of Doom 2. A small area filled with continuously spawning enemies and a boss that can only be hurt by one kind of attack.

** Also related is the fact there aren't any dogs in the secret levels. One wouldn't expect animals to be subject to the same punishment as the people that trained them.

* People complain about the huge, clunky [=PDAs=] used in ''Doom 3'' as an example of zeerust when they should be using something closer to a smartphone, but it makes all kinds of sense when you consider the setting and context: It's an interplanetary mining operation involving joint private and military efforts, so they ''would'' issue their employees a heavy-duty device with a highly visible screen and long battery life at the lowest possible cost.
