A Mancubus from Doom 3

Template:Doom 3 remake

The Doom 3 equivalent of the Mancubus is more elephant-like or Cthulhu-like since the Making of Doom 3 book states the latter.

Like the original version, it has a fireball launcher for each arm, but unlike the original, it does not fire the two launchers simultaneously, firing each in turn instead. The Doom 3 Mancubus is tougher than its classic version, taking as many as six direct rocket hits to kill, making it the toughest (but also one of the slowest) non-boss creature in the game. Furthermore, unlike the classic Mancubus, the Doom 3 version has a melee attack: both of its launchers are used as hammers.

These monsters are usually accompanied by Cherubs. This has lead to some believing they are the offspring of Mancubi.

The main diferences between the doom 3 Mancubus and the doom 2 Mancubus is the skin color, the face, and the feet. In doom 2, the Mancubus had a mouth, light colored skin, and elephant-like feet. In doom 3, the Mancubus has a small "trunk" instead of a face, pale skin, and their feet look like fanned out peices of flesh.

Trivia

  • If the Mancubus model is examined more closely (e.g. using the noclip cheat or a model viewer) it is possible to see hooks with suckers where the trunk begins, suggesting the trunks are actually tentacles; when the Mancubus shakes its head, they flap around. This could indicate that the design of the Mancubus was inspired by Cthulhu, like much of Quake. The tentacles can also be seen in the beast's introduction FMV. The designer said that the Mancubus is not only inspired by Cthulhu but also of a shock site image of a man who took off his lower jaw from a gun shot. [citation needed]
  • Some of the original Mancubus grunts from Doom II are used for this version as well.
  • If the noclip cheat is used to get up close, nipples can be seen on the mancubus.
