DETH (stands for DOOM Editor for Total Headcases) is a GCC rewrite of DEU 5.21, supporting Doom, Ultimate Doom, Doom II, Heretic, Hexen and Strife, by Antony Burden and Simon Oke. DETH was updated by Jim Flynn in 1998 for use with Boom. The editor uses Zennode as its internal nodesbuilder. An extended version named ZETH was later created by Marisa Heit (Randi) for use with ZDoom.

Around 1995, a separate editor for Hexen called HETH was created. HETH was merged into DETH sometime before version 4.01.
