Can someone explain Dopefish?

Recommended Posts

I've always wondered why he's a joke in Doom related things, and what was he a part of in Doom's history. What is it? Can someone explain me to it what it did in the Doom legacy?

The dopefish is from Commander Keen, not Doom. He didn't appear in the original IWADs, but he shows up in some other I'd games, notably Quake and Quake 2.

He's more of an iD joke than a Doom one, and has appeared in other media as well. The fish is also in Daikatana, and the apparently failed Cartoon Network pilot Lakewood Plaza Turbo! featured cameos from both the Dopefish and Commander Keen. So I guess he's a video game in-joke in general.
