Romero responded to some trivia questions on Twitter, including one curious fan who wanted to set the record straight.

If you’ve ever wondered what the iconic Doom protagonist is named, we’ve got a definitive answer from the creator himself. John Romero, one of the fathers of Doom, has offered a clear-cut answer for those curious what they should be calling the marine who can clear out a planet’s worth of aliens.

During a trivia session on Twitter, Romero answered one fan, @firithpanda, who asked what Doom Guy’s name is: “B.J. Blazkowicz, Flynn Taggard, John Kane, or what?” Romero was quick to respond with the answer.

“Doom Guy’s name is Doom Guy,” he wrote. Now we know the correct spelling and the correct name. Case closed!

Of course, the confusion used to lie within the various names the character had been given in the past. In the Doom novels of the past, Doom Guy was referred to as Flynn Taggart. In the Doom 3 novels, Doom Guy’s name was John Kane. Others believe he’s actually a Blazkowicz, like of the Wolfenstein games’ family name. This was made even less clear when Doom (2016) and Doom Eternal debuted, simply referring to the character as the “Doom Slayer.”

Now, Romero has set us all straight, and there’s no reason to keep wondering what the correct name is. With that in mind, it’s time to start looking ahead to the first DLC pack available for Doom Eternal later this month. The Ancient Gods: Part One is a new standalone expansion headed to all platforms Doom Eternal is out on. It should offer some much-needed demon slayage with Doom Guy (it is as John Romero wills it) and plenty of catharsis from the rage undoubtedly built up over all those weeks we’ve been cooped up in quarantine. is a leading authority on technology, delivering Labs-based, independent reviews of the latest products and services.
