Due to the nature of Chocolate Doom replicating the vanilla engines to a painstaking measure, it has received some criticism or jabs against itself or its fan base. Taking such things in stride, the topic has occasionally wore some of these terms in a display of self-deprecating humor.
- The channel has referred to itself as "The Home of Blur-O-Vision(TM)," referring to the 320x200 resolution of vanilla, which Chocolate Doom mimics in its video modes. The term "blur-o-vision" was originally used by the GZDoom developer Graf Zahl to describe the low resolution.
- It has also referred to itself as "the hipster one-speed bike of Doom," a term coined by JP LeBreton during the introduction segment of an episode of Devs Play by Double Fine and 2 Player Productions. The phrase directly reflects the lack of advanced features.
