The only nickname i've ever had for any doom monster was "Chaingun Bob" for the chaingunners, and that's because the DeepSea editor used to call them like that and for a time i thought it was the official name lol

When I first started playing Doom 2 as a 7 year-old, I had a nickname for a few of the monsters:

Demon - "Piggies"

Imps - "Brown fireball guys"

Cacodemon - "Barney-heads" (I have no idea why)


Nowadays, I pretty much call all the monsters by their correct names... with a few exceptions:


Chaingunners - "F*ck you, man"

Revenants - "Okay seriously, F*CK YOU!"

Pain Elementals - "F*ck you, I hate this f*cking game HOLY SH*T"

- Imp: monkey

- Cacodemon: caco, very original I know, or caquito (read as ca-kee-to) which is "little caco" in spanish, because it's cute :3

- Revenant: bonehead or rev, only to shorten their name, not that I appreciate them very much.

- Spiderdemon: spidey, girl, oppressed by her creators, she just wants to move more freely.

- Archvile: barbecuer, the uncountable times doomguy was roasted yet not eaten by one, maybe he's vegan. 

- Baron of Hell: babaron... I don't know why or what that's supposed to mean. 

- Cyberdemon: I once called him moo boy, but that's about it.

- Pinky: roadblock, do I need to explain?


No nicknames for the rest, aside from shortened names like manc, HK or PE, lack of imagination I guess.

I think this has only just recently been discussed.

Your memory is correct. Not surprisingly, this question has been asked before (and rather recently). In case you're curious to see some of the other answers over the years:

The first time I played Doom was when it was released. Back then information wasn't that accesible and even in specialized magazines and publications sometimes the names would be wrong. So me (13 years old) and my brother (7 years old) would just put names on them as we saw them appear in game.


Demon: Bull (it has horns and it charges at you)

Cyberdemon: Mechanical bull (it... has horns..)

Cacodemon: Critter / Killer tomato (both the movie Critters and the animated series for 'The attack of the killer tomatoes' were still fresh in people's memories then)

Imp: Deformity (that's based on an anecdote)

Medikit: Nurse (I called them nurses in every other FPS after that but I think that's the first one I called them that. It was after the nurse character in Animaniacs for some reason. Funny thing is now my wife also calls 'nurses' any medikits in games because of me ¯\_(ツ)_/¯)

I've always called the Resurrection of Evil Bruiser the Teletubby. Such a stupid monster design, reading up on its design intent slightly justifies it, but they should've dropped that monitor when the setpiece was scrapped. Doom 3 has terrible designs in general, and that's easily the worst of the worst.

My dad used to call Imps pig monsters because of the sounds they made. I can't remember any others, but I do remember, when I was about 4, asking why there was a skull on the menu if there weren't any skeletons in the game; my dad said "there are...", turned the corner and got punched down by a Revenant. "...See?"

I've mostly grown out of calling them by nicknames, unless i'm talking about Doom with my mom who still uses em. Most of the nicknames are generic descriptors such as fatty and skeleton (translated ofc), but there's some real gems like:


Imp = impussy (impíča in czech, you can thank my mom for that one)

Cyberdemon = rocket guy? (rakeťák in czech, it's a reference to some song)

Pain Elemental = momma (cuz it "gives birth" to lost souls aka little heads)

Mine is simple.  I just call all hitscan enemies assholes.  My little brother used to call the Lost Souls "Spongebob" because they're essentially nothing but bullet sponges that just exist to waste your ammo.
