* JustForFun/XMeetsY: Doom was once described by creator John Carmack as "''Film/{{Aliens}}'' meets ''Film/EvilDead2''." It's not hard to note the fusion between far-future sci-fi and old-school demonic horror.

** Debates about ''Doom II'' level design and whether or not Sandy Petersen is a good substitute for John Romero are also quite common. Some people consider levels from ''Doom II'' way too gimmicky and unconsistent, especially compared to now-legendary level design of ''Doom I''. Others appreciate them for being very creative and exploiting tricks and ideas that could be executed with id Tech 1 - something that was further explored by fan mapmakers.

* SpiritualAdaptation: Technically, to Film/{{Alien}} (since it was originally meant to be based on the film).

** The 10-page comic book released to advertise DOOM 1 on PC includes many a line that has since become memetic. DOOM 2016 even has it's first spoken phrase include one of the more infamous ones.
-->"They are rage; brutal without mercy. But you? You will be worse! '''Rip and Tear''' until it is done!"

** The Cyberdemon can be this, straddling the line between this and WakeUpCallBoss. Once you get past his [[HellIsThatNoise giant roar and KATHUNK-KATHUNK-KATHUNK]] footsteps, he's less of a boss and more of a [[DamageSpongeBoss circle-strafing target]] since, unlike the Bruisers, there's only one of him and he hangs out in a much more open arena. His rockets are definitely faster than the fireballs you've been dodging up to this point, but after a while you will find yourself filing them under {{Painfully Slow Projectile}}s all the same.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: ''Doom II: Hell on Earth'', while a great game, really doesn't take advantage of its Earth-based setting aside from having a few levels that resemble cities and residential areas. One would think a game like this would have large epic battles between the Earth's military and the legions of Hell, or Doomguy going out into the wilderness every once in a while. Sadly this wasn't the case, but the 2011 version of ''[[VideoGame/Doom2016 Doom 4]]'' was [[WhatCouldHaveBeen seemingly going to]] explore at least the former concept, [[DummiedOut before it was cancelled and re-built from the ground up]].
