* 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.

* 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.]]

* DracoInLeatherPants: Innumerable readers seem to nevertheless see Doom for the pragmatic, confident, brilliant ruler that he boasts he is.

** 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.
