** Continuing with this trend, the [[RecycledInSpace in space]] version of this game has combinable gun cards, leading up to a "Bananafanafofaser Bobaser Dazer Maser Shmaser Raser... of DOOM", which actually would follow through with the 'of doom'ing as it would be insanely powerful.
* ''Tabletopgame/YuGiOh'''s card game also features Doom a lot, even more so in the TCG version where "Death" tends to get replaced with "Doom".

* Also from the Franchise/MarvelUniverse, the lead-up to one of their big {{Crisis Crossover}}s in the 1980s involved [[Myth/NorseMythology Surtur the fire giant forging Twilight]], also called the Sword of Doom.

* Doomsday, who is best known for killing Comicbook/{{Superman}} himself. His arrival was even preceded by the sound of him smashing against the walls of his subterranean prison (naturally, "Doom!

* An old British comics character named Disaster Des caused trouble wherever he went without meaning to. He had a habit of singing to himself, but instead of "dum dum dum" he always sang "doom, doom, doom".

* ''Fanfic/TheNewAdventuresOfInvaderZim'' carries on the canonical series' use of this trope. Zim repeatedly uses "Doom" in dialogue, several chapters have it in their titles, and in its logical extreme, the unnamed-in-canon city the series takes place in is named "Doomsville".

* Doctor Doom (whose real name ''is'' Victor Von Doom, but [[MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate who never actually finished his doctorate]]) of the Franchise/MarvelUniverse. He talks about himself in [[ThirdPersonPerson third person]], too, which means he refers to ''himself'' as Doom. (Wouldn't you, if your name was Doom?) He was doing this before it became cool, and still does this even though it's long since become a DeadHorseTrope. [[GrandfatherClause Doom will change his ways for no one!]]
