Doug Neidermeyer is the main antagonist of National Lampoon's Animal House.
He was portrayed by Mark Metcalf who also portrayed Colonel Neidermeyer in The Stupids.
He is a member of Omega House and an ROTC leader, and regularly bullies and verbally abuses his cadets, especially Kent "Flounder" Dorfman. Flounder's Delta brothers Bluto and D-Day convince him to shoot Neidermeyer's horse as revenge, but despite the gun being loaded with blanks, the horse dies anyway of a heart attack. Throughout the movie, Neidermeyer conspires with Omega president Greg Marmalard and Dean Vernon Wormer to kick the Deltas out of Faber College. In a kangaroo court, they succeed in revoking the Deltas' charter, and Wormer later expels them all due to their low midterm grades.
In revenge, the Deltas crash the homecoming parade. In the ensuing chaos, Neidermeyer tries to shoot Flounder, but is taken out of commission by a stray parade float. In the "Where Are They Now", it is revealed that he was mutinied upon and killed in Vietnam by his own troops, ending his sadistic ways once and for all.
