Could the hero from Doom be yet another incarnation of Link, from the Zelda series? Luke assembles the surprising evidence that suggests these two gaming icons are ONE AND THE SAME. Can you think of any other reasons to believe? Are you swayed? Or does Luke perhaps need to get a little more fresh air? Drop your thoughts in the comments, and enjoy!

Oliver Thomas-Couch oh fuck you! This guy is an idiot and so are you for believing him! He is only pointing out similarities. Nothing states the two series share the same continuity!

Outside Xtra you're an idiot! Just cause they share some similarities does NOT mean the two games share the same continuity! What the hell is the matter with you?!?!?!

This video seems even more relevant now that the Doom Eternal trailer shows Doom Guy with a hookshot.

the doom slayer (DOOM 2016) and the doom marine (DOOM 1, 2 & 3) are different people. The recent DOOM ETERNAL trailer revealed that his body armor's color was reduced from green to beige. There is water on Mars! The bokoblin has ONE HORN, ON THE TOP OF HIS HEAD! Lost souls look similar to those enemies, Can Hinox shoot purple fireballs from his mouth? Baron's of hell are not lynels, lynels can not hurl green fire at you. Revenants are confirmed to be UAC personnel experimented on by Olivia Pierce in DOOM 2016. Doom is confirmed to be on Mars and Earth ONLY.
Is this a joke because it real feels like a joke....

You have a bit of a misunderstanding of Zelda's lore, as do some people commenting. one major thing is that you think Ganon is necessary for there to be a Link. This is not true. In Skyward Sword, Demise creates a curse that creates an incarnation of his hatred to follow the spirit of the hero and the blood of the goddess. That incarnation doesn't have to be Ganon. Also, in regards to the Triforce, Doom Guy would almost definitely have Power, not Courage. He just seems to radiate power. But that's all I can say for Doom. Fun video, if a bit cherry picked.

In the Doom: Eternal gameplay shown at Quakecon there are even more similarities: grappling hook, HUD and shoulder cannon that could be equated to a reincarnation of Navi, a sword, that armor looking very Zelda-esque........he just forgot that he’s a lefty.

Ok just came across this vid. I know why ganon isnt in doom, in zelda botw he gives up on reincarnation and is obliterated by zelda. Zelda is likely the daughter of the ceo of uac and it takes place on mars because it was hyrule, the hylians moved to earth after some catastrophe turned their world to big red sandpit. (We also dont know the name of the world hyrule is in only that country/continent)

Bro, listing half-assed similarities between the two game series does not mean the protagonists are the same person. You are purely talking out of your ass this whole video.

If you ignore the whole Blazkowicz family timeline from Keen, Wolfenstein 3D and OG Doom this might make sense. Not to mention ID having nothing whatsoever dealing with Nintendo.

So are Hyrule and Mars the same planet? Did some horrible *calamity* befall the planet Hyrule and leave it barren and uninhabitable? This theory makes more and more sense the more you (force it to) think about it.

Although this is technically non-canon since it was scrapped in the design phase from the first Zelda game, I wonder if it's worth noting that Link's name was chosen because he was originally supposed to be able to travel back and forth between Hyrule (as we know it) and a more futuristic setting. In that scenario, he would've been the "Link" between the past and the future, hence his name. What if that future (in theory) is DOOM? I'm actually kind of surprised this wasn't mentioned. But still, despite all the similarities (also the fact that the Doom Slayer wields a badass sword called the Crucible in the upcoming DOOM Eternal, which theoretically could have been forged with fragments/essence from the Master Sword) it still seems like a bit of a stretch to say they're the same character (or reincarnations thereof.)

If that wasn't enough he's (doom guy/link) is getting a hook shot and sword in the next game so that another link... get it

This theory falls apart completely if you actually researched the lore created in the new doom games. To summarize the doom slayer 's backstory. He was once a knight within a vast order called the "The grey knights". Their sole purpose was too defend their lords called "the Wraiths". The Wraiths were omnipotent beings that ruled over their subjects which feared and respected their gods inside the dimension of Argent D'nur, but one day the demons of Hell wished to take control of the energy native to that dimension. They failed countless times because of the strenght of the grey knights. Until one day, the leader of the grey knights lost his son in battle. Being known for corrupting individuals, the demons made a deal with the knight. If the knight would be able to make the demons pass unknowingly threw the defenses of Argent D'nur. The knight kept his part of the deal and the demons flooded Argent D'nur. They quickly took over the dimension once they fused it into their own. Argent D'nur was now a part of Hell. The knight was finally glad to see his son once more, but suddenly his son was no more. His son had been turned into a being of pure evil... The icon of sin. The knight was filled with feelings of betrayal and defeated the icon of sin, but the knight no longer existed. He had become a being of pure hatred and rage. He had become, the doom slayer. He then vowed vengeance against the demons and went on a crusade throughout Hell. The demons quickly realized what they had done, they had unleashed being capable of destroying hell itself. They quickly felt fear and tried to hide away inside the lower reaches of hell. A being called the Seraphin gifted the doom slayer with strenght and speed once he realized the doom slayer was uncorruptable, this would help him in his crusade.This crusade would happen for centuries until one day. A demon, the champion of hell itself challenged the doom slayer, it was called the Titan, but the it underestimated the doom slayer and with the use of his fists only, the Titan was slain. An unnamed being saw this and gifted the Doom slayer with a suit of armor. The praetor suit. This suit would allow him to use Argent energy to protect him from the harsh conditions of hell and allow him to regenerate himself after slaying demons. The demons realized they could never defeat so, they hatched a plan. They attracted the doom slayer to a temple and collapsed it on him, they quickly trapped the doom slayer within a sarcophagus that put him in deep sleep. They laid warning and guards to make sure no one would open the sarcophagus. Millenias later, Samuel Hayden led an expedition into hell to take the sarcophagus. He had been making many experiments on the denizens of hell. That's how he found about the Doom slayer and the fear he brought to the demons. He brought it back to his facility on Mars (or Phobos I'm not sure about that). A woman (Whose name I forgot) creates a cult inside the facility and makes a deal with the demons. Her part was to open a gate to hell and let the demons into our dimension, but she made a mistake. She had not followed the warnings and decided to open the sarcophagus to see what was inside. This is where the 2016 game starts.
