A ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}'' team deathmatch multiplayer GameMod which pits the players in two opposing teams, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the ghouls and the humans]].

The ghouls, which previously appeared in the "Ghouls' Forest" Doom [[GameMod levels]] before making it to the multiplayer game, are mostly huge floating scary heads which kill people (Choke, Sjas, Creeper, Jitterskull, Frostbite). The humans are specialists armed with weapons of various kinds, depending on their class (Marine, Hunter, Cyborg, Ghostbuster, Engineer). Basically, one team is the NightmareFuel and the other team are the unfortunate recipients.

It can be downloaded [[http://wadhost.fathax.com/download.php?view.34 here]], and requires [[http://zandronum.com/ Zandronum]].

''Ghouls vs. Humans: Legacy of Darkness'' is a fan-made, expanded version which adds a lot of new classes for both teams, and you're more likely to find it played online these days.

!!Provides examples of:
* AllThereInTheManual: [[http://cutstuff.net/blog/ The author's blog]] ''used'' to contain backstories for all the ghouls and characters. Then the author deleted them all, [[http://cutstuff.net/blog/?p=1 deciding they were "no longer needed".]]
** Thankfully, they can still be found at the [[http://web.archive.org/web/20100218024409/http://cutstuff.net/blog/?page_id=23 Internet Archive]] (see the "Characters" section in the menu).
* AnIcePerson: Frostbite, which looks like it's made of ice and has cold-based attacks.
* ArcherArchetype: The Hunter class. He's sort of BornInTheWrongCentury, as he prefers to use medieval weaponry and armor despite living in what looks like modern times.
** ArrowsOnFire: One of his weapons. He's got ice and lightning arrows as well.
* BadassSanta: Used to be one of the classes.
* {{Cyborg}}: One of the human classes.
* DeadlyDisc: One of the Engineer's weapons.
* FlashStep: The Jitterskull always moves like this, which makes it really hard to control.
* JetPack: Used by the Cyborg.
* JokeCharacter: The Christmas Update introduced Santa to the humans team, with "Holly berry traps" and a "star cannon". A few months later he was reskinned into the Engineer.
* JumpScare: All ghouls rely on this to some extent, but this is the Creeper's main shtick.
* LightningBruiser: Pretty much all the ghouls.
* MakeMeWannaShout: Sjas's supersonic shout attack.
* MouthCam: Most of the ghouls, when you play as them.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Choke, Frostbite, Jitterskull.
* OurGhoulsAreCreepier: They're giant floating heads, for one. They're still undead though.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: The Jitterskull, ''"because we all know that red eyes are EVILLLL."''.
* TechnicolorDeath: The Sjasface, Jitterskull and Creeper die in a fiery explosion.
