* 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.

** 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/{{X-Men}}) 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.

* EvilIsCool: How dare you! Doom resents that you would use such 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!'''

* AwesomeEgo: Doom is no mere boaster! Doom is worthy of such praise! For [[ComicBook/SecretWars2015 a time]] Doom was ruler of what remained of several universes until that accursed Richards came along...

* 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.

** Doom was furious to find that a [[Film/FantasticFour2015 recent 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.
