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!

also i think you are smoking a little too much sticky green if you think link and doom guy were the same person they are similar in the sense that they are recurring heroes for their respective worlds
steven espinal (1 day ago)
Outside Xtra sorry to say but it has already been confirmed that each doom games character are different people who are all descendents of B.J.Blazkowicz from the wolfenstein series both games are made by Bethesda so this makes sense as well

No the story of doom has nothing to do with link

Could be a shared universe a la Planescape, where corporate research happened to run into Hyrule looking for solutions to the problem of discovering demons. Namely, Earth's connections to other universes being biased toward pathways to Hell. They find planes which have found partial or total solutions to conflict with beings similar to the ones in Hell, and one is strikingly similar to Earth, Hyrule, that has a human species that have traditionally been called elves who have heroes that take on Hell-like beings for breakfast. They have a religion that features the triforce as a concept, similar to the Christian Trinity - a mythological being who is primarily interested in defeating demons and Hell-like behavior in humans. Also a clue that they're on the right track for ways to handle demon-beasts. Maybe there are other Hell-adjacent planes with a common culture that includes Christian-like/Hyrule-like traditions derived from some ancient war with demons. Their hero, Link, wears a color that happens to fit some American Marines military uniforms. Ah, what a simple mythos. If only things were as easy as swords and shotguns. Anyway, why *not* create an ur-mythology between games?

One way this theory falls through is that DooM 1&2 have the Doomguy, DooM 3 has the Doom Marine, and Doom 4 has the Doom Slayer. All of which are different people

Eh... wut? Dude, just stop it, this is ridiculous, realy ridiculous. All the time the only thing was on my head was that old meme of "2+1+some stupid reason = HALF LIFE 3 CONFIRMED, OMFG". You want to know why boht franchise are so similar?, because "DOOM" and "THE LEGEND OF ZELDA" came out in very close years. In that time the Video Games was some thing relatively new, and don't have much resources to innovate, so they use what they have. They needed something bombastic and atractive, "DEMONS, TONS OF BLOOD, TONS OF DIFERENT GUNS, KILL THEM ALL, BE THE HERO AND DEFEAT ALL THE EVIL, CLEAR THE DUNGEONS FULLED OF DEMONS" was something very common, cause Half Life don't show up yet. All you say of the similarity of the monsters of Zelda and his "evolution" to be the demons what they are now (forgot the mancubus, and the hell knights, and the bastard who teleports and shoot you fire balls) the green suit, the same mision of be "the hero" its pure coincidence (And Doom Guy is not a hero, its a betreyer who want revenge, (AND DOOM 3 NEVER EXISTED OK?!). The reason cause the first doom din't have much history is cause it was BIG, really big, the shoot mechanicals, the sprays, the levels, the music, tink how expensive that was for that time. They have to remove history to let pass the gamplay, was something to ambitius for a shooter, and for fuck sake that worked. But, realy if Link is doom guy, let me ask you something, were is the legendary sword? I know its something more actual, but a legendary sword, ITS A LEGENDARY SWORD. Don't tink they at least don't try to actulized? And wat about the shield? And the triforce? They just disapear? And wtf its link doing in mars? And why all the fucking creature now want to kill in super gore ways and link too? Why in doom not are a single fucking referense of zelda? I almost forgoted, AND ZELDA? Link just tink "Well Zelda magicly disapear... IM GONA GO TO MARS HELL AND KILL EVERYBODY"? And Ganon? AND WTF, WHERE IS THE ENTIRE FUCKING HIRULE? Dude, wtf. Don't do this again, just, plis. PD: Doom guy is from bethesda, Link from nintendo. Sorry for mi inyis, im from Argentina.

70 million people can use both hands for writing, shooting and swinging swords. So that isnt very likely. Doomguy doesnt talk because some characters dont. The demons and the zelda enemies are a coincidence. Green is the US army's color and it blends with nature. The demon looked threatening so his adrenaline kicked in. And myself look like doomguy (exept that im not as old).
Ian Gutierrez (10 days ago)
Doom has nothing to do with link doom guy made deal with a demon called traitor to revive his son but the demon fooled doom guy so doom guy choose a path to throw himself to hell so he killed demons for eons and he got the sword from hell and demons called him doom slayer Doom has nothing to do with link NOTHING

Liam Mocs (13 days ago)
except the original doom games take place in an alternate universe from 3 to eternal and i don't think link has a son or had this is bs and in many games that shade of green is military which the doom guy was a part of and so they stuck with it and a sword is just a fucking weapon and can be used as a much more brutal one than things like small issue handguns so it would be more gory which is one of the points of the series and plus the demons have their own origins anyone who knows any doom lore (and yes there is to all the retards out there) will know this is bs aka DO FUCKING RESEARCH KNOW WHAT YOU'RE ACTUALLY FUCKING TALKING ABOUT!!!!

All based on a tweet wherein the writer referred to Link as Zelda. You guys also got it backwards, Link is Doom Guy. Doom is the past of Hyrule.

This is just stupid. You've somehow made my brother, a factual and informative individual, into a superstitious idiot. These are just coincidences, how many times has this happened before that two characters that aren't linked in the slightest are believed to be one in the same?

If you think of argent D'nur as hyrule and link was a leader of warriors to defend it from Gannon and his demons. But his son with zelda was killed and he made a deal to resurrect his son. Who became the icon of sin(I know theres an equivalent in one game cant remember though). Letting Gannon take over and killing zelda possibly. And eventually he goes on a rampage long enough to get the titan of immeasurable power(Gannon himself) to fight him and in his rage really kills him. Then yada yada doom story.
Rolk Flameraven (28 days ago)
ok, hold on. Link is Doom Guy, Doom Guy is Commander Keen's decedent, who in turn is BJ Blazkowicz's grandson. So Link is all the Links, turns into BJ during WWII, become "Billy" for the Commander Keen games, and then Doom Guy? Man, he has seen some things.

Revenant are uac soldiers who went through test using Hill waves which converted them into overgrown stretched out human beings their bones grew but their skin couldn't keep up that's how come they have cybernetic joints because their tendons have been ripped in the original Doom they were demons that you have killed that we're Stitch back together and the uac put the jetpacks on them

well bethesda said the third game is non-cannon and most people only see the doom games as cannon not a manual as for zelda and ganin its been senturys so zelda most likely past away and ganin has been defeated so many times he hould most likely give up

Random ideas: maybe doom is in one of the reincarnations where ganon had previously won and took control of the world and Zelda in doom is perhaps dr. Hayden, being that he has the ability to harness demonic energy perhaps in a mislead way, compared to Zelda, who has the ability to contain ganons power.

In the NES legend of zelda, the ring that turns your tunic blue DOES reduce damage, so that tracks better that it seems at first.
MrSmileyFaceGames (1 month ago)
Zelda and Ganon are needed to keep balance in the legend of Zelda universe. And if something were to happen to either of them then most likely all hell would break loose quite literally and Hyrule would be unlivable due to all hell breaking loose causing link to have to evacuate Hyrule. Desperate to get Hyrule back to normal, the scientists of hyrule would start looking into ways to stop all hell from wreaking havock in Hyrule and we end up with doom
Watchman Gamer (1 month ago)
Maybe the doom marine is Ganon... He was damned and is seeking revenge on all the minions that failed him. So he makes himself look like Link to make it hurt.
Sliverik (1 month ago)
My theory is a bit different. Short is: Link is NOT the Doom guy, but your points stand. Explanation: different licences, different publishers, everything different makes it impossible officially. So, what about all your points? It was bond to happen. Not between Legend of Zelda and Doom, but between two completely different licences. It's purely by chance that these similarities are so numerous. Mario may have many similarities with one of the GTA characters, but noone will say it is him.
Alex Snitzer (1 month ago)
Zelda? A character who does jack shit aside from offering exposition and being a garage door opener? A character who gets saved by Link at the end? The wisest character in Hyrule? She's VEGA, obviously. Hell, the Doom Marine saves Vega (to removable media) before destroying the UAC system once and for all. And as for Ganon, he was referred to as the Demon King. He's the Spider Mastermind.
