** In the film, DwayneJohnson actually had to fight to keep the "BFG" reference. There's also Pinky (who gets chainsawed), a Hellknight, and Reaper saying "Hell on Earth".

** ''Doom for Doom'' recreates weapons, enemies, and gameplay elements from [[VideoGame/Doom2016 the 2016 reboot]] and adapted them into the classic ''Doom'' formula, resulting in a retro-styled demake of the former. It also features some customizable options from the ability to use multiplayer-exclusive weapons such as the Static Rifle and Lightning in the single-player campaign, enable Glory Kills, and swap between the original classic ''Doom'' enemies or their 2016 counterparts.

* StealthyMook: the Spectres are partially invisible versions of the pink Demons. This ability is not true invisibility (except in dark rooms) but is enough to trip up a player if they're not totally observant.

* CompletelyDifferentTitle: When the game was released in Japan on DOS/V (a DOS system with native Japanese language support), it bore the title "''3D Alien Busters DOOM''". This version is the only one to be distributed by [=SoftBank=] with Imagineer, the game's original Japanese publisher. An earlier port to NEC's UsefulNotes/PC98, as well as all later ports of the game, {{avert|edTrope}} the trope, however.
