GMOTA (Go Medieval On Their Asses) is a Doom mod by Combine-Kegan, a fantasy arcade beat-em-up mod. This mod adds whole new classes, and Doom monsters are replaced with new fantasy-themed ones.

This mod currently has three heroes.

LORD BLAZKOWICZ: The savior and defender of the land of Lothar. He mainly uses two weapons, The Zarach(magic sword), and the Blazter(arm cannon). He is also exceptionally good at throwing weapons like javelins or torches.

DOOMSLAYER: The warrior who destroyed the legions of hell and their leader. His arsenals are a great sword and many ranged weapons. He can move even faster than Blaz.

KUSTAM: The stalwart champion of the Lotharian arena. He uses his hand cannon and telescoping staff to dish out powerful strikes. He suits a slower, more methodical playstyle.

The latest version of the mod can be downloaded here.

This mod contains examples of:

  • Abnormal Ammo: Doomslayer's Wrath Cannon shoots rockets containing angry skeletal ghosts. If you detonated your rockets in midair, the said ghosts spawn from inside and they will chase and smack nearby enemies.
  • Airborne Mook: The Red Wyverns are relatively small dragons, and they attack you with their fire breath.
  • All There in the Manual There are backstories for heroes and enemies, but you need to read a thread in ZDoom Forum to know them.
  • Arrows on Fire: The Knight Archers sometimes shoot fire arrows or ice arrows at you. They are not very lethal, but rather annoying because fire arrows will spread fire to the ground, and ice arrows will slow you down.
  • Bandit Mook: The Magebane thieves can drain your mana or ammunition with their knife attacks.
  • Big "NO!": The Palvise Guards screams "NO WAY!" before they die and explode. Always.
  • Blob Monster: The Brood Slimes. They can fly with their wing and spawn many small slimes.
  • Boom Stick: The Trine Volgue subweapon is a magic staff, and Blaz can shoot sprays of projectiles from it.
  • Caltrops: The Shatter Slicer throwing knife will generate many caltrops when it stuck against the enemy.
  • Chainsaw Good: Doomslayer has the Sunder, a small circular saw. It deals a considerable amount of damage, and generates several ammunition for weapons.
  • Charged Attack: The Wave Buster attack of Blazter is this. At max charge, Blazter will fire several explosive projectiles at once. Kustam's hand cannon can be charged to fire a spread of shots, and at max charge fires an exploding shot.
  • Cluster F-Bomb: The Steel Dukes have a tendency to say "Shit!" when they got hurt. They are mooks and numerous, so you will hear lots of S words from them.
  • Combos: Blaz's basic sword and fist attacks are combos, so he can easily kill weak enemies with these attacks while stunlocking them. Taking scroll items will add additional attacks to combos.
  • Cool Sword: Blaz's magic sword, Zarach. This sword has shiny looks and many cool mechanics. It can be powered up with arcane power to greatly increase its attack power! It can change its shape and perform many different attacks with the power of subweapons! Finally, this sword is able to unleash a devastating one-hit kill attack by consuming spirit gems!
  • Crystal Prison: The primary attack of Blazter can seal the enemy with a crystal for awhile. This attack can't seal bosses, though.
  • Damsel in Distress: The Goddess of Time was captured by the forces of Ruceal, and they made vast amounts of portals to invade other realms, by exploiting her power! She only appears in Blaz's Backstory and not in-game, though.
  • Dem Bones: This mod has a plenty of skeleton enemies. Grenadier revenants, Hellfosses, Bonelords and so on...
  • Enemy Summoner: The Bonelords sometimes launch a mortar shell to the player. It will cause an explosion, and summon several mini skeletons.
  • Evil Knockoff: The Blaz mimics are this. They can use a sword and throw subweapons like lances or hatchets like Blaz, but they are not very strong.
  • Fire-Breathing Weapon: Doomslayer's Infernfo Rifle. It shoots fiery projectiles and charges its heat to heat tank. You can discharge charged heat in shotgun style in the secondary fire.
  • Flaming Sword: The alternate attack of Dagger subweapon turns Blaz's sword into flaming one, then Blaz slashes enemies with it. This attack also spawns damaging flames on the floor.
  • Flechette Storm:
    • The Spike Vulcan subshot fires a wave of spike darts at enemies.
    • The Hellfosses are able to shoot many knives at you from their shield. Also, the Edgelord can spawn a tower of guns to fire an insane amounts of daggers.
  • Gold-Colored Superiority: Golden armor has more armor points and armor strength than steel armor.
  • Good Old Fisticuffs:
    • Blaz mainly uses his magic sword, but his gauntlet fists are equally deadly. He can even perform spinning lariats.
    • Doomslayer uses his fists to pulverize enemies when he is in berserk mode.
  • Gun Twirling: Holding Reload when Kustam's hand cannon is full. Functionally useless, but cool!
  • Hand Cannon: Kustam wields a massive, bolt-action handgun. It fires slowly, but deals MASSIVE damage per shot.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: Two of the three heroes use swords in combat, to great effect.
  • Heal Thyself: Kustam, in lieu of a Life Drain move, can use his med-tool to restore health, with a cooldown between uses.
  • Harder Than Hard: The Knightmare mode replaces all enemies to more dangerous ones, and a Mirror Boss sometimes appears from a corpse of dead enemy.
  • Hitscan: Averted. All projectile shooting enemies shoot actual projectiles, though the ballistic ones usually has fast moving projectiles.
  • Hyperactive Metabolism: All of healing items are food. The Superburger is the best one.
  • Idiosyncratic Difficulty Levels: Each character has their own difficulty names.
    • Lord Blaz:
      • Knave
      • Squire
      • Knight
      • Lord
    • Doomslayer:
      • Annoyed
      • Angry
      • Furious
      • ENRAGED
      • BERSERK!
    • Averted with Kustam, which uses:
      • Very Easy
      • Easy
      • Normal
      • Hard
      • Very Hard
  • Inexplicable Treasure Chests: All enemies have a chance to drop a chest that has a subweapon. Why they have chests is never explained.
  • Kill It with Fire: Blaz can throw torches to burn enemies. It can spread fires to the ground. Doomslayer's Inferno Rifle also qualifies. Kustam can obtain an upgrade that lets him do this, via flamethrower.
  • Kill It with Ice: The alternate attack of Dagger subweapon turns your sword into ice and freezes enemies. Frozen enemies will shatter and become tasty ice creams, so you can eat it to replenish your health.
  • Life Drain:
    • Blaz can recover his health by striking the enemy with powered up sword.
    • Doomslayer can recover his health by throwing knives at the enemy, or punching enemies in berserk mode.
  • Lightning Gun: Doomslayer's Thunderbuss Cannon is a weird mix of a sawed-off shotgun and this trope. This weapon unleashes many bullets of lightning from both barrels.
  • Limit Break:
    • Blaz has the Fatal Draw. The Fatal Draw is the ultimate sword attack that can kill most enemies in the game in one hit, and it also unleashes deadly sword beams. Using this attack needs spirit power that can be charged by dealing damage with powered sword or getting spirit gems.
    • Doomslayer has the Berserk Rune, which adds a berserk meter charged by dealing damage. When full, Doomslayer can activate it to empower himself. Then he will scream like a madman and turn into an insanely powerful melee warrior. He can smash any enemy to pulp with his fists in this state.
    • Kustam has the Sentinel Arms, which he can charge with gem pickups and med-tool shocks. When activated, Kustam breaks out the big guns, dual-wielding a flamethrower and automatic cannon that can clear whole crowds when used correctly. The only caveat is managing your heat gauge, as using the flamethrower increases your heat and the cannon decreases it.
  • Losing Your Head: The Chaos Revenants can launch their head at you. This attack temporally makes them headless, but they will eventually regain their head.
  • Ludicrous Gibs: More like ludicrous bones. Gibbing the enemy makes them to spawn tons of blood and bones.
  • Mage Marksman: The Mage Gunners. They can shoot deadly magic projectiles from their enchanted rifles.
  • More Dakka: The Hyper Buster attack of Blazter can fire damaging bullets with a very high fire rate. After this attack, you won't be able to use Blazter for a while due to overheating.
  • One Hit Poly Kill: A beam attack from the Heat Beam subshot can penetrate and kill several enemies at once. One of Kustam's sub-shots also fires a piercing beam.
  • One-Man Army: Your hero will take out hundreds of enemies through levels with swords, fists, guns, or assorted medieval weapons. It's Doom mod, after all.
  • PiƱata Enemy: Opening chests sometimes spawns an annoying small golden skeleton. Killing it will spawn many item, and sometimes a rare item.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Blaz is awfully short for a heroic knight. It does absolutely nothing to stop him from thrashing evildoers.
  • Quick Melee: Doomslayer can swing his greatsword while wielding a gun. He can't do it with guns that have the secondary function, though.
  • Ranged Emergency Weapon: Doomslayer has an arcane pistol that doesn't use ammunition. Unlike most examples of this trope, this pistol deals decent damage against enemies.
  • Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: Blaz can punch enemies multiple times in quick succession. This is taken up to eleven in the 100 Crack Fist attack.
  • Screams Like a Little Girl: The Edgelord often taunts you in an ominous manner, but it will let out high-pitched shrieks when it's damaged by attacks.
  • Shout-Out: As you can see, this mod uses countless sprites, songs and sound effects from SNES-era videogames.
    • Doomslayer's scream when he activate the Berserk Rune is exactly same as Sly Marbo's one.
    • The Yashichi appears as a Megasphere replacement.
    • The Cybermancer uses dialogues of Magneto from the XMen arcade game. It even says "Welcome to DIE!" when it found the player.
    • Blaz's the 100 Crack Fist attack is basically Hokuto Hyakuretsu Ken. The game even uses Kenshiro's voice for it.
    • Sometimes when you press "Use" on a wall, or on a switch you can't use yet, instead of a grunt, Blaz might say "Whoops!", which is a shout-out to Swan Fox, an amateur anime-esque Doom WAD, which was brought into the spotlight of the Doom Community after well-known Doom Modder Terminus Est 13 uploaded a playthrough of the mod.
    • The Doomslayer's weaponry is a medieval take on his usual weapon set. His melee altfire is Hexen's Sapphire Wand repurposed as a pistol, His shotgun is Heretic's Firemace with non-exploding balls, and the Rocket Launcher is combined with Hexen's Wraithverge, complete with the ability to detonate the rockets mid-flight like Doom (2016) to release the spectres.
  • Smug Super: The Bonelords. They are skeletal remains of powerful necromancers. And they taunt you a lot.
  • Spikeballs Of Doom:
    • The Heavy Macer subshot spawns a big spiky ball. It continually fires spike missiles at nearby enemies, then explodes.
    • The Steel Dukes fire spiky mace balls at you.
  • Spread Shot: The Scattershot subshot. As you can expect, this attack is quite damaging at close range.
  • Sword Beam:
    • Getting the Ring of Might allows Blaz to fire small sword beams from his sword.
    • Doomslayer in berserk mode can fire massive sword beams from his greatsword.
    • The Hellfosses shoot multiple fireballs from their sword.
  • Stuff Blowing Up:
    • The Crush Missile subshot fires a missile that causes damaging explosions.
    • The Rolling Bomb subshot launches a big red bomb, and it causes a huge explosion. This explosion is big and powerful enough to destroy many mooks at once.
    • When he has the Ring of Might, slashing the enemy with Doomslayer's greatsword causes small explosions.
  • Take That!: The Steel Dukes, a common mook, speaks with Duke Nukem one-liners scrambled and has Duke Nukem's scream upon being hit.
  • Telescoping Staff: Kustam's preferred melee option. It can do anything from laying a thorough beatdown to deflecting projectiles. With an upgrade, it can even generate explosions on enemies it hits with charged strikes.
  • Throw Down the Bomblet:
    • Doomslayer can throw bombs to attack enemies. There are also special bombs with own unique effects.
    • The Bomber knights attack you with bombs. They throw timed bombs at close range, or fast small bombs at long range.
  • Throwing Your Shield Always Works: There is the Warding Shield subweapon, and you can throw it to attack enemies. It also can be used to defend yourself.
  • Throwing Your Sword Always Works: Blaz can throw his sword like a boomerang, and it's damn effective. Also, he can take back his sword effortlessly by waiting roughly 10 seconds.
  • Tornado Move: The alternate attack of Warding Shield subweapon will spawn a small tornado. It will suck nearby enemies up, so you can easily slice and dice them with your sword.
  • You Will Not Evade Me: Blaz can use his grappling hook to pull enemies, so he can strike them down easily. The Bonelords also can pull you by attacking you with their rocket fists.
