Doom Eternal is coming to Xbox Game Pass on October 1 and that got me thinking about Doom. I like Doom a lot. I’ve written about it many times before on Kotaku and it seems like it’s about time I sit down and rank all the demons who have appeared in Doom games throughout the years.


So here you go, the definitive list ranking all the Doom demons (and other enemies), from best to worst:

1. Cacodemon
2. Hell Knight
3. Spider Mastermind
4. Cyberdemon
5. Revenant
6. Imp
7. Baron of Hell
8. Pinky Demon
9. Arachnatron
10. Mancubus

to me, the biggest and worst demon of them all was..

—that f—king setting you had to play with to align wall textures when you were making your own levels!

I could make a simple wad in 10-15 minutes.. just to spend 2 hours to align all the textures and just give up, as usual. I learn to give up at a very young age.
