Pom Pom as a Cacodemon

Doom is a series of first-person shooter video games, notorious for graphic violence and hellish imagery. The first game in the series is widely credited with defining and popularizing the FPS genre. The Brothers Chaps have made several references in the Homestar Runner body of work to the series, especially the first two games and Cacodemons, the floating one-eyed demon foes that appear in the game.

[edit] Doom WADs

The Brothers Chaps also make several references to .WAD files. An abbreviation for Where's All the Data?, these file packages are typically fanmade mods for Doom that include new levels, graphics, and other game data. WADs are portrayed as functioning with many various programs, although in reality they are only usable by the Doom engine.
