** The [[Film/FantasticFour2015 2015 cinematic adaptation]] reduced him to a whining StrawNihilist programmer and glowing green mannequin wrapped in trash bags. If Doom actually existed, he would've probably sent an army of Doombots rampaging on the [[Creator/TwentiethCenturyFox studio that dared portray him in such an insulting manner]]; then again, after seeing the [[BoxOfficeBomb box office numbers]] and [[EpicFail critical reception]] for said adaptation, even he would've probably decided they had suffered enough.

Yes, yes, some of Doom's qualities are open to interpretation, but remember... '''''THE ONLY AND UNQUESTIONABLE TRUTH IS DOOM!!!!'''''

* AwesomeEgo: Doom is no mere boaster! Doom is boaster, he has shown himself to be worthy of such praise! For some of the things that he praises himself for. His crowning moment must be how, for [[ComicBook/SecretWars2015 a time]] time]], Doom was ruler of what remained of several universes until that accursed Richards came along...universes.



* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: [[Creator/StanLee My creator]] once called me his favorite villain. Even if I do object to his terminology "villain", I do respect the fact that Mr. Lee does appreciate my genius.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: Capcom was wise enough to recognize my greatness and made this [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-R0oukuh9o theme]] for their fighting game, ''VideoGame/MarvelSuperHeroes''. ''VideoGame/MarvelvsCapcom3'' uses a very fitting and ominous [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ObxGUEkzF_o remix]] of said theme for me. They also made [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=alYhrEwijC8 a victory theme fit for a monarch like myself]] in ''Marvel Super Heroes''. And someday, I hope to tar and feather the fool who made that caterwauling that passes itself as ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom2'''s music.
* DracoInLeatherPants: While the foolish writers try to paint Doom as a villain, innumerable readers nevertheless see Doom for the pragmatic, confident, brilliant ruler that he really is.
* EvilIsCool: How dare you! Doom resents that you would use a phrase such as "evil" to describe him. However, the second part is true. Many comic fans find themselves impressed with Doom's costume, power and intelligence. As they '''SHOULD!'''
* HilariousInHindsight: In the 1981 compilation movie ''Doctor Doom Conquers the World'', Doom's first words are "Of course." Doom understands that this echoes the words of [[WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic a certain Internet reviewer]] and [[Film/StreetFighter a certain less-successful (though not entirely ignoble) would-be conqueror of the world.]]

** Not to mention my almost-marriage to the ComicBook/ScarletWitch.
* HoYay: Many of the vermin crawling on your Internet look at Doom's relationship with that blasted Richards and blithely assume that [[FoeYay Doom's righteous hatred and supposed obsession with him is merely a crude mask for sexual desire]]. This suggestion is nothing more than prurient '''''NONSENSE!'''''
* MagnificentBastard: Doom has been accused of many things by fools, but Doom can indeed achieve anything by force of mind and wisdom alone, if he tries.
* MemeticBadass: Doom is one of the few people who [[strike:with preparation time]] can give Franchise/{{Batman}} a run for his money. Genius shall always trump mere physical strength and wealth.
* MoralEventHorizon: Doom has done many things that fools' paltry attempts at moral reasoning will categorize as "inexcusable". Yes, I could easily explain all of my reasons for doing such "abominable" acts... but then again, I am Doom -- he who cares not for whatever judgments your feeble opinions might have of him, and see no need to try rationalizing these deeds for your satisfaction.
** A moment of recent times has to be ''Unthinkable'', where I reunite with my long-lost love, [[spoiler:only to sell her soul to a trio of evil demons and wear her ''skin'' as a magical costume]]. In the same story, I abduct Richards's two children -- the son is sent to Hell with said demons; the second, my [[strike:(self-considered)]] Goddaughter (named after the aforementioned lost love) I keep safe, but I do consider torturing and/or killing her too just to drive her accursed father even madder. I torture the Four in horrible ways as well, but that doesn't really count.
** In the novel trilogy 'The Chaos Engine'', an [[strike:enfeebled]] elderly version of Doom announces that he will use his Cosmic Cube -- which he had used to set up a despotic tyranny with an invasive [[PoliceState psychic police force]] -- to [[OmnicidalManiac kill everyone on Earth]] just before he dies. As ruler, he used said Cube to get Magneto (replacing the defeated Richards as his enemy, Doom finding total victory [[VictoryIsBoring boring]]) to commit needless slaughter by destroying UsefulNotes/{{Paris}}, running concentration camps, and meting out horrid punishments for the flimsiest of transgressions, like when his wife (Storm, from the ComicBook/XMen) was accidentally seen naked by her bodyguard -- said bodyguard had his eyes gouged out (and delivered to Doom), a more merciful fate than that given to the man's wife and daughter.
** In the story "Dr. Doom and the Masters of Evil," when I have the chance to wish for anything I could desire -- to have any dream fulfilled -- I wished for the destruction of my own conscience, so I could continue crossing this line with no bothersome sense of guilt at the back of my mind.
** Taunting the [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Asgardian Kelda]] by saying that a [[MagicalGirlfriend relationship]] between an [[MayflyDecemberRomance immortal and a human is impossible]]. She tries to avenge her dead lover by attacking my castle, but I easily defeat her and rip her heart out. [[UnexplainedRecovery She recovers]], but my words still ring true: Her lover remains dead.

** Doom doubts that Creator/HannaBarbera could have picked a cheesier-sounding man to voice him in [[WesternAnimation/TheFantasticFour1967 the Fantastic Four's first animated series]].
** Doom was furious to find that a [[Film/FantasticFour2015 2015 cinematic adaptation]] reduced him to a whining StrawNihilist programmer and glowing green mannequin wrapped in trash bags. He was prepared to send an army of Doombots rampaging on the [[Creator/TwentiethCenturyFox studio that dared portray him in such an insulting manner]], but after seeing the [[EpicFail box office numbers and critical reception]] for said adaptation, decided they had suffered enough.
* NeverLiveItDown: Curse you, ''[[ComicBook/SquirrelGirl SQUIRREL GIRL]]!!!''
* NightmareFuel:
** With his SuperScience and [[BlackMagic Literal Magic]], Doom has resources for policing, supervising and [[MindRape brainwashing]] his peons that make [[NineteenEightyFour Oceania's]] Thought Police look like [[PoliceAreUseless bumbling Clouseaus]]. At least some versions of Latveria are consequently ''very'' dystopian, with ''every citizen'' living in perpetual fear, knowing that BigBrotherIsWatching all they do. As with real totalitarian dictatorships like North Korea, it's often far from clear how much of Doom's all-pervasive personality cult is genuine admiration by the people of their leader and how much it is enforced through terror.
** Made doubly worse by the fact that some depictions of Doom are not [[NobleDemon Noble Demons]], or even just generic evil overlords, but [[TheCaligula narcissistic psychopaths]] who seemingly ''enjoy'' abusing this surveillance and people control technology to torment their hapless subjects. In such stories, Doom will often subject his servants to violent [[DomesticAbuser verbal and physical abuse]], suddenly [[{{Gaslighting}} change the rules]] on them or feed them to his wild robots on a whim. The most creepy versions basically subject the Latverians collectively to a sort of nationwide RomanticizedAbuse -- including literal rape of at least some of the women.
** However, all such depictions are naturally the mere products of American imperialist propaganda. All loyal Latverian subjects may rest assured that the Great Leader '' '''DOOM''' '' would never so abuse his power, since he is a man of honor and dearly loves his subjects. Thus reassured, you may now return to freely and voluntarily singing your spontaneous hymns of heartfelt praise to your mighty monarch.

* BeamMeUpScotty: Admittedly, Doom has not yelled Richards' name as much as this page would suggest, not within the boundaries of the Marvel Universe anyway, but more in [[ComicStrip/TwistedToyfareTheatre a satirical comic series that ran in a magazine no longer in print]]. But who's to say that this ''doesn't'' sound like Doom?
