SO I realize there is already a thread on different names for the demon, so I thought why not make a thread where you could post nicknames of all the doom monsters?

Sometimes I call Archviles 'Archies'
I also have an odd urge to call the Spider Mastermind 'Spider demon'. That's been in my head for a while now.

So, let's hear 'em.

Demons - Hellhounds
Spectres - Shadow hounds
Cacodemons - Killer tomatoes
Pain Elementals - Skull spitters
Arachnotrons - Spider-bots
Mancubus - Fatties
Archviles - Protectors
Spider Mastermind - Spiderdemons
Cyberdemon - Cybies

I tend to call Archviles 'archies,' though now at times I call them 'protectors' cause, given they are nasty with their fire spells and revive killed monsters, I got the hunch that their role is to protect Hell.

Barons are "Betties", and Revenants are "Veronicas".

I occasionally call Barons "Big Bad Booty Daddy." If you know where that's from, you win a cookie.

PINKY.


Actually, I used to call them "bulls" for the longest time whatever reason. "Bull Demons" has now become my quasi-official name for them, since "Demon" sounds like it refers to everything that's not a zombie. :P

I sometimes use mapping names (what purpose they serve) or just made up ones:

Demon - Pinky, Fodder

Demon, Baron - Blockers (because that's what they are good for)

Cacodemon - Trollodemon (this is pretty recent - not only do they look like a trollface from angle 2 and 8, they can usually troll the player with their terrain bypassing ability and emerge in unexpected places)

Pain Elemental - Pain in the Arse Elemental (or PITA Elemental - self explanatory why)

Mancubus - Mancy ("Man Key") -> Monkey

Lost Soul - Skull


Also some abbreviations:

Spider Mastermind - SM -> S&M
Arch Vile - AV
Hell Knight - HK

I have always called Mancibi "Ohmlinows" because when I first encountered them that was what I heard when they attacked, and it has stuck to this day because I think it's cooler than their real name.

Scott Steiner is probably bigger than a Baron, but a Baron doesn't eat steroids for breakfast

Whenever someone says 'Mancs' I think of the identical pseudonym for residents of Manchester.

I usually always call the monsters by their official names (although some have more than one "official" name).

Some nicknames I have read/heard in various places (CDs, DOOM tools, personal communication, etc.)...
Heavy Weapon Dude: Overweight guy
Lost Soul: Ghost
Cacodemon: Floating thing or Floating head
Pain Elemental: One-eyed blob
Baron: Cow boss
Arachnotron: Baby spider
Mancubus: Fat blob
Revenant: Tall shambler
Arch-vile: Evil spirit
Cyberdemon: Cybo boss
Spider Mastermind: Spider boss or Big spider

I'm wondering why someone would call the Baron/Knight a "cow". They're part goat. Goats aren't cows.

Cacodemon: (Flying) Carpets! Vertical-standing round red rugs with faces! Y'understand?! Ever since '95, even.

Doom 64 zombiemen: Forrest Gump

Semi-related... The two dark rooms filled with Imps and two Barons in E2M4 at the bottom of the elevator in the round room: Shit Pits. (Also dates to 1995...when I would've found that part hectic!)

Bonus: HACH-FEWF (Projectile sound phoneticized)
