I have also granted my presence to several television series, right back to the days [[WesternAnimation/TheMarvelSuperheroes when your pathetic animators couldn't document events of the Marvel Universe through anything other than]] [[ClipArtAnimation sliding drawings in front of a camera]]. I have been portrayed in cinema by [[Film/TheFantasticFour Joseph Culp]], [[Film/FantasticFour Julian McMahon]], and [[Film/FantasticFour2015 Toby Kebbell]]. Hubris, yes, but done with enough skill and respect to stay Doom's wrath.

* EvilVersusEvil: Doom must often forcefully correct certain criminals, lunatics, and presumptuous 'cosmic' beings. These have included the
ComicBook/RedSkull, the underwater warlord Krang, the demented Onslaught, and self-styled 'higher beings' such as the Over-Mind and the Celestials.
* TheEvilsOfFreeWill: Of course! It is Doom's destiny to eradicate the chaotic foolishness of mankind and [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans create a perfectly ordered world]] [[LawfulEvil under my iron-fisted rule]]!

* GadgeteerGenius: Long before that layabout Stark constructed his armour, Doom did fashion his own in a cave, from ''less'' than scraps, along with a fully functioning nuclear-powered jetpack. Doom's is the superior mind, as are his creations!

* HijackedByGanon: When my 'master', the Marquis of Death, seemingly deposed me and attempted to defeat the Fantastic Four himself, the fool did not realize that his new 'apprentice' was actually myself, having survived my fate in the past, in a devious plot to finally gain my revenge, In the end, it was I who dealt the final blow to the ill-fated Marquis. He should have known that Doom would never truly call anyone else Master.

** MeaningfulName/PropheticName: The name "Victor" means "conqueror" in Latin, which is quite appropos for the majesty that is Doom. '''''ALL WILL KNOW THE GLORY OF VICTOR VON DOOM!!!!'''''

* CaptainPatriotic: I might not share [[ComicBook/CaptainAmerica Rogers']] sanctimonious "morals", but I can qualify for this trope. The people of Latveria love me, and I won't let them forget it. '''''EVER'''''.

-->'''Doctor Doom:''' You and I are THE MIGHTIEST beings on this planet! I choose TO EXERT my power to impose my will upon the world. You choose not to! And yet, even THAT choice does indeed AFFECT the lives of every man, woman and child on earth, CONDEMNING them, in fact, to POVERTY, DISEASE, FAMINE... AND to the hideous suffering they inflict upon one another! You cannot escape it, Superman! YOU Dictate the fate of mankind... one way or the other
-->'''Superman:''' I know! But what can I do? Seize power and try to remake the world into a utopia? That would put me in a class with men like Hitler and you.
-->'''Doctor Doom:''' You misjudge me, Superman. I am no raging Fuehrer, wringing hatred from misfit followers! My kingdom is a a place of peace and contentment! You must visit Latveria - [[BlatantLies you are always welcome!]]

** I met the real ComicBOok/{{Superman}} and ComicBook/LexLuthor in ''Superman & Spider-Man #2''. Being the MagnificentBastard that I am, Superman could do nothing to me since I resided in my embassy and was under Latverian law. The magnificent part? I did it out in the open on the embassy's doorstep to his face.

The Internet, too, has been graced with my image. My likeness has been used on a show called WebVideo/AssistMe where a video game player by the name of Maximilian has befriended yours truly and has even made me his roommate, as he should. Though, for some odd reason, Doom has taken a likeness to yogurt and an evidently popular children's show named WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic. I'll be sure to look into that particular Doombot soon enough. I have also taken part in another web series called WebAnimation/DeathBattle, where many characters from different universes engage in mortal combat. Doom grants his assigned opponent, one [[Franchise/StarWars Darth Vader]], the supreme accolade: he was that rarest of things, a worthy opponent. In the end [[spoiler: however, he was no match for the might of Doom! Now his Empire is mine to control!]]

* EvilVersusEvil: Doom is sometimes forced to take up arms against other so called Supervillains. ComicBook/RedSkull has not [[NeverRecycleYourSchemes once]], but [[SubvertedTrope twice]] taken over the castle of Doom in Doom's absence. As well as Doom facing the enemies of [[Comicbook/SubMariner Namor]], the underwater Warlord Krang, and his ally Tigershark.
** Several EnemyMine situations occurred as well. Doom's brilliant tactics helped take down Onslaught, an enemy to all of existence, and Doom has helped the ComicBook/FantasticFour against cosmic beings such as the Over-Mind and the Celestial Host.

* ButForMeItWasTuesday: Once, a misshapen creature attacked Doom, claiming I had once used him as the subject of an experiment and declared himself "the man whose life you destroyed." Doom pointed out, quite logically, that the man cannot possibly expect Doom to remember every life he has destroyed.

* AdaptationalBadass: For whatever reason, Doom was bestowed with superpowers in both of Creator/TwentiethCenturyFox's cinematic takes on the ''Fantastic Four'' property. They apparently thought it was necessary to give Doom an AdaptationOriginConnection to the accursed team that Richards assembled as opposed to Richards himself - bah!
