I have a question that I would like to ask you guys. What are the demons in Doom supposed to be exactly? From what I've read about demons in general, they're either fallen angels or unclean spirits that can possess people. At least that's one interpretation. The reason I ask is because I'm working on a story that takes place in the Doom 3 universe.

I don't think they're some "versions" of sinners etc. They seem to be creations of the Icon of Sin augmented by human technology (except for former humans which, as the name suggests, used to be humans :P)

I don't know, demons perhaps? Seriously, any interpretation is just that. Classic Doom only ever called them demons or aliens (really, they're both), and Doom 3 itself doesn't really stray from that either. 3rd party games and adaptations aren't really canon.

Why do you keep making these threads with vapid questions about demons, even after almost all of the previous ones have been helled? Before anyone calls me out for irony or being hypocritical, yes, I used to be a constant shitposter, but I stopped because all I was doing was attention grabbing and making myself look stupid.

Demons are demons. It's like asking what a raccoon or dragon is supposed to be.

I always wondered how seriously Doom would be taken, if it had gone with stereotypical pitchforked red-skinned devils, or more medieval demonology imagery, kinda like a demonic masquerade.

So they could very well be these guys dressed up as those guys?

Are you saying that the portal between this world and post hell has been opened? And that demons are pouring out?! Are they literal demons, alien-demons, demon-aliens or demon-demons?

What about former humans? Are they supposed to be animated cadavers taken over by lost souls?
