- Doomguy

Doomguy (originally known as "our hero") is the main protagonist of id Software's DOOM series.

Since its release in 1993, DOOM has gone down in history as being one of the most notable and influential FPS titles of all time. DOOM and its sequel have inspired many "DOOM clones," such as Rise of the Triad, Marathon, Star Wars: Dark Forces, Duke Nukem 3D, and Shadow Warrior. DOOM is also responsible for populating modding thanks to id Software's generosity in giving the community modding tools, and the source code to the DOOM engine, now known as id Tech 1.

The series follows an unnamed marine, most commonly known by the community as Doomguy. After assaulting his commanding officer for refusing to fire upon innocent civilians, Doomguy was dishonorably discharged and then later transferred to the human-made base on Phobos. Unbeknownst to him, the shady conglomerate known as the UAC had been conducting experiments on teleportation, which led to them opening a portal directly to hell. By the time Doomguy reached Phobos, the forces of hell had overrun the entire moon. With nothing but a pistol in his hand and pure rage, he would fight back against the seemingly endless hoard of demons. He would go on to save Earth itself and face various powerful hellspawns, such as the Cyberdemon, the Spider Mastermind, the all-powerful Icon of Sin, the Mother Demon and her twin sister, the Resurrector, and the ruler of hell himself, the Dark Lord.

Reception on /v/[edit]

DOOM has had a massive presence on /v/ and /vr/ since the very early days and is wildly agreed even by the most contrarian of /v/ tards to be one of the best FPS ever made. With this popularity, many mods have come out of 4chan, from the /vr/ collaboration megawads to one of the most notorious mods ever released, Moon Man Doom. But recently, DOOM has fallen out of favor with many anons since DOOM Eternal was released. While the majority of the gaming community has praised Eternal, respective from /v/ tards has been spit. Some enjoyed the puzzle-like combat Eternal brought to the table, while others detested it. Many also hate the more superhero take on Doomguy (Now going by the name the Doom Slayer), with many claiming that it's comparable to "capeshit."

Tournament History[edit]

A question relating to Doomguy losing to Agent 47

King of /v/[edit]

Doomguy's first run in the 2019 tournament was very successful. He curb-stomped almost every opponent he faced. Even heavy hitters like Dante from Devil May Cry and Solid Snake from Metal Gear were no match. But he would end up losing the finals against Senator Armstrong from Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.

He would return in 2021 and do relatively well that year, with his most notable matchup being against Kratos, as he destroyed the Ghost of Sparta in the polls by 80% more votes. But his run would end when he faced that year's finalist, Dr. Eggman from Sonic the Hedgehog, in round 4.

Even since then, he has failed to get past round 2, losing to fan-favorite Jack Garland from Final Fantasy in 2022 and, to the shocks of many anons, to Agent 47 from Hitman in 2023.


In Co-op 2024, he would team up with Geralt of Rivia from The Witcher series in quite an impressive run. Going by 'The Slayers', the two would fight to the elite 8. Many believed they would win the entire tournament based on their performance. But to the surprise of everyone, they end up losing to their elite opponents, The Lords of Chaos, Dracula, and Death from the Castlevania series. They would humbly end up taking 5th place.

Doomguy's status[edit]

Despite the popularity of DOOM, Doomguy has had a shakier track record in the tournaments following his initial run. He has only reached the quarter-finals once and lost in round 2 twice in 2 years despite having a really high seed. His track record has baffled many anons. Some speculate that the mixed reception of Doom Eternal on /v/ has damaged Doomguy's reputation. Others claim that he's been extremely unlucky with his matchup. Even with his losing streak, Doomguy is still a fan-favorite amongst the anons. Only time will tell if he can break his losing streak.
