Other versions[edit]

In the Xbox 360 and BFG Edition versions of the IWADs, the cross graphic is replaced with a red-and-white pill. This is due to the red cross symbol being protected under a treaty which disallows use in commercial products.

In the Doom Classic Unity port versions of Doom and Doom II, the cross has been restored but is now green.
