The Cherub is a monster new to the Doom universe, having not appeared in older titles. It has the appearance of a human baby with insect-like wings.

Cherubs typically attack in groups, with the player fighting a series of several of them in the same area. However, Cherub groups are typically smaller than Trite or Tick swarms, and they usually attack the player 2 or 3 at a time instead of several at once.

Cherubs are often found near Mancubi, leading some to think that Cherubs are their offspring, which is wrong.


  • Cherubs are named after angelic beings of the same name from Christianity, which had four heads. These are often depicted as angelic infants with wings ("putti") in modern Western Christianity, which may have inspired the design of this monster.
