Doom Eternal The Ancient Gods Part 2 Ending: What Happens to the Doom Slayer?

The end of Ancient Gods Part 2 is confusing, the climax does not reveals much about the Doom Slayer's Fate.

The Ancient Gods Part 2 is a conclusion to the Doom Slayer. Many things this is the end of Doom Slayer. We will try to find out whether it’s true or not? If Doom Slayer will be called back to slay more demons or will there be a new face of the Doom series? Before we dive deeper into the final climax of Doom Eternal let’s have a little know-how about Doom Slayer’s background. [SPOILER’S ALERT]

Who is Doom Slayer?


Doom Slayer is the only face of the entire Doom series starting from the very first game released in 1993. Predecessors of this game do not reveal Doom Slayer’s face or his history, while in the latest series we have come to know how he really looks. Based on the developer’s interview this the doom guy does not has any ancestral background. According to the game designer Doom Guy represents the player.

This clarifies the Doom Slayer has no origin. This puts a lot of gaps in the story. This is where the ending of The Ancient Gods Part 2, to an extent fails to justify the end of doom guy.

Ancient Gods Part 2 Ending Explained


Dark Lord the final villain of Ancient Gods Part 2 is the creator of everything. He reveals he is the first being and he is the one who created all. In simple words, he is the true creator of everything, who also created the Father. Later the angels created the Doom Slayer by stealing the power from Dark Lord. The objective behind creating Doom Slayer who himself is a clone of God is to kill the Dark Lord. This will let the Father become the only God.

Doom Eternal Ancient Gods Ending

After multiple waves of a fight when the Doom Slayer finally killed the Dark Lord he faints. All demons on the planet fade away as no source of their power are left. Doom Slayer is a clone of Dark Lord created by the Angels. By killing the Dark Lord, Doom Slayer ended his life also.


Is the Doom Slayer Dead?

Doom Slayer is not dead, he is shown as losing consciousness and the angels bury them inside a grave. Locking up the body, there is no concrete proof Doom slayers has burned down like all other demons. Doom guy will be back as the Father needs him. He is in the grave will rest for a while. Dark Lord was his exact opposite of Doom Slayer. An alter-ego of dark power. Slaying him has weakened the Doom Slayer, but he is not dead.


If you remember the cutscene where Doom Slayer destroys Father’s Life Sphere and takes the Dark Lord’s Life Sphere. He then carries it to angels to resurrect Dark Lord back to life. The symbol on his back is exactly the same as the symbol on the door of the grave of Demon Slayer. Watch the video above, this symbol may act as a connection between the two in the coming series of Doom games.

Possible Rumors:

  1. Doom Slayer will be resurrected and will kill the Father.
  2. The Father will be the main villain in the next Doom series.
  3. Doom Slayer might transform into Dark Lord, that’s why he picked the Dark Lord’s Life sphere and destroyed Father’s Sphere.
  4. Doom Slayer will be resurrected by one of the Angels who will assign him the next mission.
  5. No more Doom Guy, Doom Girl will be the new face of the game series.
