**Following up on this, what happened to the Yorps and Gargs, the natives of Mars from the first Commander Keen game? Demons were unleashed on their moons and if they reached the planet's surface, they'd be defenseless. And that's if the UAC didn't do anything to them first.

*** This is a common misconception, as the Wehrmacht committed more than its own share of war crimes. However, since the SS tended to dabble in the Occult (hence the commonality of TheGhostapo), chances are these SS goons you encountered did ''something'' to give themselves some degree of freedom when they went to Hell. So they could build their own fortress and keep the demons out (or tame some in the case of Pinkies).

* WordOfGod has confirmed that Doomguy is the son of [[VideoGame/CommanderKeen Billy Blaze]]. This means that in the ''Doom II'' bonus level Grosse, he not only found four lynched clones of his own father, but he was forced to [[SelfMadeOrphan kill each of them]] in order to progress through the level.

*** And considering that they're ''dogs'' specifically, chances are they [[WesternAnimation/AllDogsGoToHeaven got a free pass]].

** Furthermore, notice how only the SS Officers are present, but not the regular soldiers. The soldiers, or Wehrmacht, were just ordinary people fighting for their country. The SS, however? They orchestrated most of the notorious war crimes of World War II. They are ''definitely'' going to Hell for their actions.



* In TNT: Evilution from ''Final Doom'', the forces of Hell invade via a spaceship. Looks like another race somewhere opened a hell portal, too.

** Or since the Vault-Tec logo appears on one of the doors in the UAC facility, the energy crisis could refer to the Resource Wars and the Great War from the ''Franchise/{{Fallout}}'' series. Bonus points for the game taking place in the 2140s, which would be seventy years after the Great War, and roughly twenty years before the original ''Fallout''.
* ''Doom'' has been frequently accused by Christians of promoting Satanism due to the abundance of demons and Hell being a setting of the game. But ''Doom'' is all about '''destroying''' demons, and invading Hell itself. Therefore, ''Doom'' is actually as Christian as you can ask a video game to be.

** Classic Doom, the Arachnotron and Spider Mastermind have, compared to other monsters of similar strength, a disproportionately high chance of flinching when they're hit and being interrupted from shooting back. [[spoiler:They're giant brains on mechanical legs. Of course they're going to be less resistant to pain.]]
*** Which has a bit of fridge logic in itself, since a brain is the ONLY part of a body that cannot feel pain at all (it processes pain but actual harm done to the brain itself can't be felt)
*** Possibly it's not actually pain, but unintended spasms caused by the punishment being rained upon them, then?

* 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.]]
