Solar Struggle is a 36-level limit-removing megawad for Doom, designed by various members of the community, led by ViolentBeetle, and uploaded to the /idgames archive on September 9, 2022. The community project includes new custom graphics and music, and it is themed around conceptual titles that dictated how the maps were designed by the various authors.

The story concerns an unnamed prisoner escaping from a prison on the moon of Titan. The protagonist has to then travel across various moons and planets to finally reach Venus and end the invasion.

It was named one of the runners-up during the Cacowards 2022 feature.
