Daisy

From DoomWiki.org

Daisy on the Inferno end screen.

Daisy was the Doomguy's pet rabbit. The rabbit's head is shown in the end picture of Episode 3: Inferno, impaled on a pike as evidence that the hellspawn have come to Earth, but the rabbit is not specifically identified as the Doomguy's pet.

In the end picture of Episode 4: Thy Flesh Consumed, the rabbit's head reappears in the Doomguy's hand. The preceding text mentions that "someone was gonna pay for what happened to Daisy, your pet rabbit." Due to the lack of any previous mention of this in the Episode 3 text, this would appear to be an example of retconning.

The original episode 3 ending sequence does not appear in most console ports of Doom. In the Game Boy Advance port, the ending of episode 4 is uniquely displayed instead, even though that port contains no other resources from Ultimate Doom.

Other appearances[edit]

Doom (2016)[edit]

Daisy reward poster.

Daisy is referenced off-hand in an Easter egg in Doom (2016), where a poster on a wall in one of the multiplayer levels features a generic picture of a rabbit with the caption "REWARD - Lost pet rabbit Daisy", and instructions that if she is found, the fake phone number 121-019-93 should be called, which is also in turn a reference to Doom's original release date of December 10, 1993.

Quake Champions[edit]

Daisy's left hind paw, turned into a memento mori by the Doom Slayer.

id Software's 2017 game Quake Champions features the Doom Slayer as a playable character. Each playable character in the game possesses an artifact item as one of their collectable lore entries. For the Doom Slayer, this artifact is the left hind foot of his pet rabbit Daisy, whom the game states was "killed by marauding demons when their invasion of Earth began." The presence of this artifact and its attachment to the Doom Slayer character is cited by many as additional evidence that id Software may consider the character to be one and the same person as the original Doomguy.

Unofficial[edit]

  • Daisy makes an appearance in Action Doom in the final level, which takes place at Deimos due to unforeseen events that took place at the "Union Aerospace Laboratory". She is animated, and runs around Doomguy's base in space; the player cannot harm Daisy in any way.
  • She also appears as a cheat skin of past versions of Skulltag.

Trivia[edit]

  • Many players perceive the pike as being an arm holding up the head, due to its flesh-like coloration. The most common interpretation is that it is the Doomguy's hand, since he is later seen with it in the ending to Thy Flesh Consumed.
