Random Doom is a Franchise/{{Pokemon}} webcomic and collection of fan works by [[http://tamarinfrog.deviantart.com/ TamarinFrog]] on Website/DeviantArt about a Pokemon trainer named Jenna, but more importantly about her various Pokemon that she owns. The series started as single gag comics but expanded to have several well developed characters and stories. The series was expanded into a proper story. At the moment, Random Doom consists of:

* '''Random Doom''' - A collection of 20 gag comics. Ongoing, last updated in September 2012.
* '''Random Doom the Comic Series''' - The spin-off of the aforementioned gag comics. Consists of 4 (and counting) short stories:
** '' '''Riolu is Born''' ''
** '' '''For the Love of Luvdisc''' ''
** '' '''Ghost of Old Chateau''' ''
** '' '''Dear Departed''' ''
** '' '''Random Doom in Veilstone City''' '' - Ongoing
* '''What is Random Doom?''' - A collection of bios and backstories of various characters from Random Doom's various comics and side works.
* Dozens upon dozens of peripheral pieces of art.

Also, for a collection of assorted fan works, it's popular. ''Really'' popular. To the point where Random Doom's comics have managed to gain the following of '''7(!)''' running fan translations and have led to the creation of a small body of its ''own'' fan works.

On November 9th, 2012, the author has announced a complete reboot, due to many loopholes and mistakes she made about the timeline and the characters as well. As a result, every character is getting a history change.

They can all be found [[http://behindtg.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d1vt8lh here]].

!!This webcomic contains examples of:

* ArtEvolution
* ActionGirl: Veruka, oh so very much.
* AuthorAvatar: Jenna.
* BerserkButton: Don't threaten Cotton or Veruka; Napoleon and Vincent respectively will '''not''' be happy.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: [[spoiler:Cotton]] and [[spoiler:Vincent]].
** Apparently [[spoiler:Matthew]] also qualifies.
* BadassGrandpa: Leopold and Matthew. Elizabeth is also apparently strong enough to [[NeverMessWithGranny hold Vincent aloft with one pincer and throw him with the force of a full tackle,]] qualifying her for this as well.
* ButtMonkey: Vincent.
* CerebusSyndrome: Random Doom began trending towards more serious undertones and themes starting with the launch of its comic series. Thankfully, it has managed to do so while retaining its initial sense of humor and lovable cast of characters.
* CharacterDevelopment: The entire cast has evolved from their initial characters over Random Doom's lifespan. One of the most clear-cut examples would be [[strike:Presto]] Sebelius' alterations since his introduction.
* TheCynic: Elizabeth.
* DirtyKid; Vincent's first words are:
-->Vincent: Dude, she's cute! Do you think I might have a chance to score?
* DisproportionateRetribution: The Gengar from Ghost of Old Chateau had some decidedly ''nasty'' plans for revenge for Danny and Merry spoiling the locals' preparations for a party.
* EmbarrassingNickname: Danny ''really'' doesn't like it when Merry calls him "Poffin."
* EscapeArtist: Danny and Merry.
* TheFool: Oh, Vincent, Vincent, Vincent, you lovable idiot. You're the [[TheKlutz klutziest,]] [[TheDitz ditziest]] character in the strip, a hopeless {{fool for love}} and inimitable fountain of randomness. And that's exactly why the fans all love you.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: [[spoiler:Vincent]] has such a moment in Ghost of Old Chateau.
* [[ICantBelieveItsNotHeroin I Can't Believe It's Not Heroin]]: Rupert and sugar, to the extent where he inadvertently causes a large chunk of Ghost of Old Chateau while attempting to get a soft drink.
* {{Jerkass}}: A few of Jenna's Pokémon have their moments, especially [[JerkJock Napoleon]] and [[DeadpanSnarker Elizabeth]].
* HeartbrokenBadass: ''MATTHEW''. ''Arceus almighty'', Matthew.
* {{Keet}}: Scratch and Sebelius.
* TheKlutz: Vincent.
* HotBlooded: Napoleon, also Veruka to a lesser extent.
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: And ''how!''
* PerkyGoth: Edna may be a witchlike ghost-type, but has a fun-loving (if mischievous) personality.
* PluckyGirl: Saria.
* PrimalFear: Vincent is terrified of the dark, the result of getting lost in a heavily Poke-populated cave as a young Riolu. This fear, however, is sometimes played for laughs.
* OfficialCouple: Several. In the main cast alone, we have:
** Vincent and Veruka
** Napoleon and Cotton
** Ross and Saria, although the two don't officially know it yet (See TwiceShy below)
* RetiredBadass: Leopold doesn't fight much now, but he won't say no to a worthy opponent. Matthew, on the other hand, was expressly forbidden to fight after he [[spoiler:tore off part of Zorro's wing and possibly almost killed him.]]
* {{Rickroll}}: No, seriously. There is an unofficial BehindtG strip (the artist specified that it isn't an RD comic) that features Vincent trying to sing "Never Gonna Give You Up" to Veruka, as he clings to her tail and apparently gets dragged around. The fans sometimes refer to it as [[http://behindtg.deviantart.com/gallery/161654?offset=120#/d1dz28a "LucarioRolled" or "VinceRolled."]]
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Young Vincent in ''Riolu is Born.''
** Morrigan, the Zorua who recently joined the cast, [[http://behindtg.deviantart.com/gallery/?offset=24#/d408qvo is very much this.]]
* ScheduleSlip: The speed at which updates come is ''very'' much tied to the amount of free time that the author has at a given moment, leading to schizophrenic oscillations between multiple updates within a single day, to weeks-long droughts of new materials.
* ShrinkingViolet: Ross, ''especially'' around Saria
* StalkerWithACrush: The [[spoiler:Feraligatr]] from For the Love of Luvdisc.
** Zorro the Mothim would also qualify for Elizabeth.
* StickyFingers: Danny.
* {{Tsundere}}: Veruka is a type A.
* TwiceShy: Ross and Saria. Possibly one of the cutest examples you'll ever find.
