The Doomguy is Duke Nukem.Think about it.
Doom 4 Will have you kill Satan while working with the main characters of Doom/Doom 2, Doom 3, and Doom 3: Resurrection of Evil.Exactly What It Says on the Tin
The Doom Guy is Gordon FreemanThey both never talk, both have power armor, and both are a One-Man Army. Gordon was called into the UAC for his experience at fighting otherworldly beings in science facilities.
The Doom Guy becomes KhorneThink about it. Both characters go completely batshit insane when around blood. A single punch from the doomguy can fracture the very fabric of one's body, Some playthroughs of doom use ONLY THEIR FISTS. Hence, it could be concidered that the doomguy literally only took on the forces of hell with his fists ALONE. In Doom 64, he seals himself into hell, All the time in hell probably changed him into some godlike entity hellbent on spewing more blood.
No, the Doom Guy is a demon.And then Doomguy was a zombie.
I.M. Meen is behind the invasion of hell, and Scott (the boy from I.M. Meen) is the DoomguyNote: This has spoilers from Wolfenstein RPG After Scott escaped I.M. Meen's labyrinth, I.M. Meen swore that he would be back. Eventually, he died and went to Hell, where, with the Harbinger of Doom, they planned revenge on Scott, who is BJ Blazcowicz's grandson. The Harbinger of Doom's powers helped all of I.M. Meen's monsters Take a Level in Badass, thus transforming them all into the Doom monsters we know (Troll=Demon, Spider=Arachnotron, Grim Reaper guy=Revenant, Guardian=Baron of Hell, Red ghost thing=Cacodemon, etc.), and so that they didn't go down in a few punches from a little kid. Scott happened to get a job on Phobos, and I.M. Meen saw it as a perfect time to unleash his new hellish army, which proceeded to zombify all the humans. Unfortunately for him, Scott also Took a Level in Badass and was easily able to defeat the demons, thus foiling I.M. Meen... or so he thought. His anger had turned him into the Icon of Sin, and the demons invaded Earth. Eventually, Scott defeated I.M. Meen for the last time, bringing peace to Earth. Although it does make me wonder what happened to Katie (the girl).
Doom Guy is the grandson of Commander KeenThe Blaze/Blazkowicz family moved to Mars after the Vorticons were eliminated. During the UAC teleporter incident, old man Billy Blaze was taken prisoner by the Demon invaders. When the Doom Guy finds his grandfather being tortured by the Cyberdemon incarnation of Hans Grosse, he does the only thing in his power: he delivers a coup de grāce. The spirit of Billy Blaze rewards his grandson by returning him to Earth.
The abstract level designs aren't abstract at allAfter the release of Doom 2, video game levels became drastically more realist, especially their layouts. After playing a game like Half Life 2 or more recent shooters like Uncharted it can be jarring to go back to games like Doom where the levels are more abstract and aren't made to resemble anything 'real'. Switches can reveal massive underground rooms or pits of toxic waste in surreal locations. These levels, though, are they really so abstract? Or is this merely a reflection of how the invading demons bring Hell with them? The levels get more abstract towards the ends of Doom 1 and 2, when the player gets closer to (or actually enters) hell itself, so obviously this abstraction is just part of how hell works.
All those secret stores of weapons and ammo were the result of the invasion.As has been noted, the invasion had some effect on the layout of the levels. One might wonder why bothered to stash all those handy weapons and other items all over the place, while none of the actual demons can make use of them. It's possible they were intentionally hiding them, to simply prevent the enemy from making use of it all against. This might all explain why all those other space marines were wiped out, while the main character could manage despite being along and armed with only a pistol. In addition to being too tough for hell to contain, he was the only one with the wits or insight to figure out where all those goodies were hidden, while his comrades could only make do with the firepower they had available to them or could retrieve directly from the enemy.
Doom takes place in the Warhammer40000 universe.C'mon, it's got demons on Mars!
All of the demons are real people; everything is a hallucination of the character's mind.Mars is also a hallucination as well.
The Martians in Doom 3 fled to Earth
Doom 3 is actually a sequel to Doom and Doom 2
DOOM 3 is not a remake or a sequel. DOOM 1 and DOOM 3 are the same invasion fought in different parallel universesThe demons are waging a multi-dimensional war. An infinite number of space marines - sole survivors of their respective parallel universes - are making their way into Hell to fight a multi-dimensional Eldritch Abomination.
The Cacodemon and Pain Elemental are related to one another in some manner, as well as to Unreal's GasbagI mean, they're both floating heads with gigantic mouths that can create things and launch them offensively (fireballs and Lost Souls). Eventually the two species, now inseparable, end up on Na Pali, becoming known as Gasbags - floating heads with a big mouth that can shoot fireballs (like the Cacodemon), but with usable arms at their sides and brown skin (like the Pain Elemental). Furthermore, the largest of these creatures can create smaller ones to help it in battle.
The Doomguy from the Doom comic is Deadpool.He's Ax Crazy, conversant with weapons and seemingly can have a conversation with his dialogue boxes. Who else could he be?
Black metal?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LcZKT7fa0gE Song came out a year after Doom was released, parts of it sound a LOT like E 1 M 9 Hiding the Secrets.
The Lost Mission is a What If?? scenarioObviously, the fact that the lone Bravo Team member and Dr. Meyers survive the events of Doom 3 directly contradicts the events of Resurrection of Evil. Thus, the only possible explanation is that this story takes place in a different timeline than Resurrection of Evil. This is where the title comes in. This expansion pack is called the "Lost" Mission because in the original timeline, Bravo Team was completely wiped out, and thus, their mission was "lost". This alternate timeline basically shows the mission that would've happened had any member of Bravo Team survive their encounter. The Lost Mission also explains how...
The Exis Teleporter is the reason why the events of Resurrection of Evil take place.In the original Doom 3, the Soul Cube severed all ties between Hell and Mars, which is why the demons eventually fail. However, in Resurrection of Evil, the forces of Hell not only come back, but leave an Artifact behind to lure in the humans. This would contradict the Soul Cube's actions in Doom 3. The Exis Teleporter explains how the demons got through. The Soul Cube can seal off Hell and Martian portals, which explains why demons didn't invade until humans built teleporters. However, once the humans created their own teleporters, Betruger was able to circumvent the Soul Cube's abilities and trap it in Hell to set off the invasion. This shows that human teleporters aren't affected by the Soul Cube. Thus, the demons used the Exis Teleporter to return back to Mars and remove the Soul Cube, once again allowing them to return to Mars. Thus, the destruction of the Exis Teleporter in the Lost Mission means that in that timeline, Ro E never happened. The Exis Teleporter also explains that...
The Exis Teleporter is what allowed the Doom Marine from Ro E to survive.Mc Neil says "Welcome Home", not "Welcome to a better place", or "paradise", or any other euphanism for Heaven. This would indicate that the Marine somehow survived and got back. Previously, there was an issue with this WMG because the Marine had no way to return to Mars, considering the teleporter he used had had no opposite teleporter in Hell, which would prevent any return trip. However, the Exis Teleporter solves this. It has been shown to be capable of being activated within Hell (which makes up the plot for the Lost Mission) so the Marine somehow fought his way to that teleporter and escaped back to Mars and then to Earth with Dr. Mc Neil. The demons also won't be able to follow them, because the teleporters require someone who knows how they work to maintain the portal (which are the roles of Ian Mc Kormic, Dr. Meyes and Dr. Mc Neil when teleporting the main character. Not having a proper overseer destroys the Delta Teleporter when the Marine came back in Doom 3). The demons, in order to activate the teleporter, required Betruger to maintain the portal (who, at this moment, is kind of dead). They wouldn't be able to operate the teleporter without him, finally fully severing all direct ties between Hell and our universe.
The Commandos in Doom 3 are Nazis.
