Notes[edit]

  • There are multiple contradictions from official and semi-official sources as to when the original DOOM games take place:
  • The manual for the SNES port of DOOM claims that the Instruction Booklet was published on 15/03/2022
  • Based on Tom Hall's comments on Doomguy being Commander Keen's grandson, that would set the original DOOM games, at the earliest, in the mid-2030s (assuming Keen [aged 8 in the early 1990s] and his future child each had a child at the age of 18)
  • According to the Death Certificate that came with the "Daisy, The Pet Rabbit" doll sold by John Romero, Inferno of the original DOOM takes place on 29/05/2020
  • The SNES manual date may still be accurate as it is more than likely, in-universe, it was published after the events of the original DOOM
  • If assuming Doomguy is Keens's son rather than his grandson, the 2020s timeframe is still accurate
  • Whilst it's unconfirmed whether or not Official Add-Ons are canon to the DOOM timeline, ones that do not contradict anything official will be included for the sake of completeness
  • No End in Sight appears to be set in an alternate reality from DOOM, or one that splits off from the timeline after DOOM II
  • The end slide states that the DOOM series (or at the very least DOOM (1993)) exists within this reality as a video game series
  • The end slide also suggests that the human race, apart from Doomguy, is now extinct, which contradicts official games set after DOOM II
  • The official story contradicts the ending of DOOM II, as it states that the invasion of Earth did not cease after the death of the Icon of Sin
  • Deathless appears to have no story
  • REKKR is set in a universe unrelated to DOOM
