* 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?

* BaseBreakingCharacter: Doom is quite certainly one of Marvel's most polarizing characters, for some he's a cool MagnificentBastard and one of Marvel's best villain for others he's an overrated VillainSue, and Marvel's most [[CharacterShilling shilled character.]]

* WhatAnIdiot: In his OriginStory, he's a college student, aiming with a private project to open a portal to hell. That cursed Reed Richards, who was passing by, points several mistakes in his formulas. Doom shows him the door.\\
'''You'd expect:''' That, once Richards is gone and nobody will take undue credit for his project, Dr. Doom would check again the formulas, to confirm if they are right indeed, or if there is some mistake to fix. If Richards ''was'' right, nobody would know it, and Doom can deny him any credit. In any case, checking and double-checking his work several times should be a must when he does a project like this all alone, even if Richards never interfered.\\
'''Instead:''' Doom ignores Richards' warnings and proceeds with the experiment. It goes wrong, there is a huge explosion, and his face gets scarred beyond heal.

* CompleteMonster: In the {{novelization}}s of ''Film/FantasticFour'' & ''Film/FantasticFourRiseOfTheSilverSurfer'', by Creator/PeterDavid & Daniel Josephs respectively, [[ComicBook/DoctorDoom Victor Von Doom]] is portrayed as [[AdaptationalVillainy nothing like his regular iterations]], but rather a complete psychopath obsessed with hurting others and [[AGodAmI making himself a god]]. His entire motive stemming from a [[EvilIsPetty petty hatred of Reed Richards for not being as smart as him]], Doom's sociopathic nature is first on display when he attempts to leave his own fiancée, Sue Storm, to die alongside Reed and others to [[DirtyCoward save his own skin]] with nothing but [[LackOfEmpathy cold apathy]]. After gaining metallic skin and electromagnetic abilities, Doom [[AxCrazy slowly loses his carefully built up affable persona]], starting when he murders his doctor for trying to tell others of his "condition", and going further downhill after he [[DisproportionateRetribution murders a business partner for insulting him]]. By the end of the first novel, Doom's true personality of a {{narcissist}}ic lunatic has come into full display, as he attempts to sadistically freeze Reed to death. In the second novel, Doom [[EnemyMine allies with Reed and rest of the Fantastic Four]] to stop the titular Silver Surfer, however it is quickly revealed that it was a ploy on Doom's part to steal the Surfer's power, which he immediately uses to [[CruelAndUnusualDeath gruesomely kill an army general and murder numerous soldiers]]. In the end, as Gah Lak Tus arrives and begins destroying the Earth, Doom, rather than stop Gah Lak Tus with his power, only laughs as countless innocents die and the world crumbles beneath him, proclaiming himself a god who no longer needs the Earth or anyone else, [[ItsAllAboutMe just himself]].

* CantUnhearIt: Fans also tend to read Doctor Doom's lines and revelations from just about anywhere in the voice of Creator/LexLang, Simon Templeman, or Creator/PaulDobson (along with maybe Creator/MauriceLaMarche).

** With ComicBook/{{Storm}}. Though it might have been a Doombot. Such is Doom's charisma that even a mechanical facsimile has charms beyond those of normal men.
