|~ Doom upon his defeat.|
Doom is the main villain and final boss of Salamander 2. Little is known about him, other than he is another hive mind created by the bacterians. Doom have ressurrected the Salamander Force, leading them into a new attack against Gradius and Latis. The Vic Viper is sent, along with the new spacecraft Super Cobra to fight against Doom's forces, successfully defeating the invaders and destroying their base, along with Doom.
Doom differs greatly from other Gradius final bosses in that he actually fights back instead of being a sitting duck. His attacks involve shooting laser beams, destructible rings that release energy bolts that track the player and sending larvae that drop weapon capsules.
