*** '''"Level 16: Blood Keep"''' has a layout that is fairly complicated to figure out, and is a fairly long level. [[https://youtu.be/Bxjpc9gSf4o?t=467 The exit room has a nasty surprise]]: Some Lost Souls assault you and are easy enough to deal with, but after they die, the edges of the room (2/3 the room) lower into an inescapable death-pit that kills you, which means that if you happen to wander here at the wrong time, [[AngryVideoGameNerd you go back to the beginning]]. Note that the Doom 64: Absolution, [[GameMod game mod]] for the PC has an alteration of this trap, that is not to be confused with the original, where the sides lower right away, and the safe zone is even smaller, with the player surrounded by hell-knights. This game engine is built on [=JDoom=] and allows SaveScumming unlike on the N64, lessening the likelihood of redoing the level.

** The BFG in multi-player, due to the aforementioned ability to fire off a shot in one room, run over to another player, and then hit-scan frag them without them even knowing. They could even kill you first, and ''still'' get nailed by the hit-scan! It isn't a pushover in single player either. The high damage and extreme blast radius of its attack could clear an entire room of baddies. Custom level makers can note this and create levels with hoards of monsters to encourage skillful BFG use.

** Doom 64 averts this under normal play with its final level, The Absolution, as its disabled infighting on arena levels means you can't cheese the small army you're fighting to all kill each other, while you have a legitimately challenging boss afterwards when much of your ammo has been depleted. if you go into the level with at least two Demon Keys however, it falls right into this, as you can skip most (with 2 keys) or all (with all 3 keys) of the initial army sequence, while the powered-up Unmaker will make even the Mother Demon a complete breeze to kill.

** Barrel Suicides: because of how the game assigns an 'owner' for sources of damage and the Monster In-fighting code, a monster that injures itself by accidentally detonating a barrel with its own attack while trying to hit you will end up in a frenzy, killing itself with its own melee attack.

* BreatherLevel: Map four of episode four "Unruly Evil" will come across as this. While resources aren't plentiful, the enemy count is low with no real dangerous placements nor difficult level sections, and the level on a whole is rather easy. Unruly Evil comes after [[ThatOneLevel those two levels]] and another fairly difficult level.

** The UsefulNotes/AtariJaguar version is pretty decent for a console port (Romero, Carmack, and id Software developed the Jaguar version themselves, and many of the console ports are based on this version), but it contains no in-game music for some inexplicable reason.

Added DiffLines:

* RatedMForMoney: Alongside with ''Franchise/MortalKombat'', ''Doom'' helped [[TropeCodifier codify]] and [[TropeNamer originate]] the mentality that controversy helps the game sell.
