Dominic "Dom" Toretto is the main protagonist of The Fast and the Furious franchise. He is the deuteragonist of The Fast and The Furious, a minor character in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, and the main protagonist of Fast and Furious, Fast Five, Fast and Furious 6, Furious 7, The Fate of the Furious, F9, and an untitled film.

Background

Dominic Toretto was born August 29, 1976. His father was a professional stock car driver who earned a reputation on the track and his family owned and ran a market and cafe shop. As a child, Dominic befriended the likes of Vince during the third grade. At some point he also befriended Letty, a neighborhood local, around the time she was ten years old, based on their shared interest in cars. However, he never took a romantic interest in her until she was sixteen years old.

Dominic's father was a proactive figure in his life. He helped Mia with her homework, reading ahead of chapters to help her the following day. The Toretto's also attended church and held family barbecues for their neighbors. Dominic helped his father build what would become the 1970 Dodge Charger R/T, "900 horses of Detroit muscle". His father used the Charger to participate in the Los Angeles County Raceway in nine seconds.

During the last stock car race of the season of an unknown year, Dominic watched as his father was run off the track by another racer, Kenny Linder, when Linder's car clipped his bumper. Dominic's father was killed instantly when his stock car crashed into the wall at 120 miles per hour and burst into flames. Dominic remembered hearing his father screaming, but the people who witnessed the accident explained that his father had died before his car exploded. Dominic had been the one screaming.

A week following the accident, Dominic encountered Linder and when given the opportunity, Dominic attacked Linder, beating him with a wrench. Dominic only intended to hit him once but lost control and kept attacking Linder it until he couldn't lift his arm anymore. The result of Linder's injuries rendered him unable to race, Dominic was banned for life from the tracks.

Dominic was sent to Lompoc Prison for assaulting Linder. In addition to keeping up his family's business, Dominic also engaged in major crimes with his friends, such as stealing major appliances from transporting trucks using their cars. Dominic also participated in illegal street races for money and to sustain his passion for racing.

Powers and Abilities

  • Peak Human Condition: Dominic has proven himself to wield immense strength and durability easily apparent for someone of his physical build. Surprisingly, he is very fast and agile too, as well as quite athletic.
    • Peak Human Strength: Dominic can generate peak human strength. He is able to easily overpower weaker opponents, even quite a few of those that included extensively trained fighters and during his fight with Deckard Shaw, he proved to surpass Deckard's strength, able to uppercut him off his feet and several feet away, as well as pick him up by his collar. His blows were able to punch through concrete and dent a car when he punched it instead of Shaw, which angered him to the point he was able to lift him up and throw him into a car windshield from a further distance. He could also lift Connor Rhodes by the throat with one hand. His greatest feat of strength was stomping the ground weakened by Mose Jakande's missiles, causing it to crumble beneath Shaw's feet. The only ones to have ever surpassed Dominic's strength are Luke Hobbs and Klaus but even those individuals have trouble fighting him, as Dominic was able to clash with Hobbs and cause him trouble breaking out of his grip while he was able to eventually do the same when Hobbs restrained him, although he only did it the second time when he was angered upon seeing Mia in danger, while he was able to knock off Klaus with a leaping blow and lift him long enough for Hobbs to knock him out. In Abu Dhabi, Dominic also managed to lift the front of a Lykan HyperSport, which weighed 3,042 pounds (1,380 kilograms/1.52 tons).
  • Master Driver: Dominic is career racer and proficient driver, adept at driving various vehicles. Dominic is skilled in varying race and street sports, such as cornering and drifting, but prefers quarter mile races. Dominic is often reckless, using extreme measures to resolve equally extreme situations. In two different occasions, Dominic drove his Dodge Charger R/T off the cliff and smashed it in order to escape from Mose Jakande and his men, and twice he smashed directly in a head-on collision with Deckard Shaw.
  • Expert Engineer: Dominic is adept at fixing and tuning cars, rivaled only by Tej Parker in experience. He built the Dodge Charger R/T with his father. He built and tuned several vehicles that he owned, including two 1970 Plymouth Road Runners and a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle from an audition race for Braga's crew membership.
  • Master Combatant: As a street fighter, Dominic uses unorthodox methods to fight his opponents. He is not afraid to use blunt weapons, such as wrenches and pipes. His impulsiveness and aggression is often a driving force in winning fights, but as he matured, he learned to keep his head and resort to more tactical methods. He is usually capable of drawing strength from watching his loved ones to turn the tides against a winning foe. In addition to being capable of handling many highly trained opponents on his own easily, Dominic has proven his physical conditioning and skills to be enough to pose a difficult challenge to the likes of the extremely skilled Brian, Owen Shaw, and even Deckard Shaw and Luke Hobbs. Indeed, he was able to soundly defeat Brian, stalemate Owen and Deckard, and while ultimately overpowered by Hobbs, he was able to match and even gain the upper hand and almost kill him upon seeing Letty giving him strength.
  • Marksman: Unlike many of his opponents, Dominic rarely resorts to using firearms. When he does use firearms, his preference is often the shotgun. Even though Dominic prefers fists over firearms, he is adept at using them. He mainly prefers using shotguns, and once, he made a sawn-off. While he was under attack from Reyes's men, he saved Hobbs's life and killed several attacking men using a shotgun from Hobbs's armored truck.
  • Leadership/Tactician: Dominic is rather intelligent and uses his opponent’s presumption to regard him as ignorant to his advantage. He perchance of elaborate heists, such as the 2004 truck hijackings, and the 2009 fuel thefts, saw him and his given teams incorporate high end and luxury vehicles into his plans. When collaborating with Brian in 2009, he devised a plan to hijack 100 million dollars in Rio from Hernan Reyes, a Brazilian drug lord, and also aided Luke Hobbs to capture Owen Shaw. After escaping capture in the U.S for hijacking cars, he was able to escape from the county. He managed to remain in hiding for five years from the U.S government, travelling across Central and South America, such as Mexico, Dominican Republic, Panama, Ecuador and Brasil. After stealing 100 million dollars from Hernan Reyes, he hid in the Canary Island in Spain mainly because there was no extradition clause.
  • Bilingualism: Dominic speaks English and Spanish.

Equipment

  • Smith & Wesson Model 19: Dom's sidearm is a nickel snubnose revolver. He brought it to Johnny Tran's garage and drew it when he took cover, but did not use it.
  • Taurus PT92C: Dom took Elena Neves' sidearm and briefly aimed it at her when he visited her apartment in Rio de Janeiro.
  • Kimber Warrior SOC: Dom took Connor Rhodes' sidearm from Cipher and aimed it at the latter, but did not pull the trigger.
  • Wilson Combat BCM Gunfighter 1911: Dom drew this pistol in New York City when he seemingly killed Deckard Shaw. He later aimed it at Rhodes' head when he rescued Letty Ortiz.
  • Zastava M70: Dom took this rifle from one of the gunmen who stormed his safehouse.
  • Mossberg 590 Mariner: Dom's most frequent weapon of choice is a shotgun. He took Vince's shotgun before he confronted Brian O'Conner on his driveway, but disarmed himself of the weapon when Jesse arrived. He later brought the same shotgun to Mexico with Brian, first aiming it at "Arturo Braga" and used it again to shoot out an enemy tire.
  • Remington 870: Dom brought this shotgun when he and his crew raided one of Hernan Reyes' safehouses.
  • Mossberg 590: Dom used Agent Chato's shotgun with a Surefire forend, an ATI collapsible stock and a door-breaching brake when the convoy was ambushed in Rio.

  • UTAS UTS-15: Mr. Nobody gave Dom this shotgun for his confrontation with Deckard Shaw, but he did not use it.
  • Sawed-Off Shotgun: Dom sawed off a 12 gauge side-by-side shotgun for his final confrontation with Deckard Shaw, but he did not use it and decided to engage him in a street fight instead.
  • LaRue Tactical PredatOBR 7.62: Dom disarmed Rhodes of his 18-inch barrel sniper rifle.
  • M26 Hand Grenade: Dom took a bag of Deckard Shaw's grenades and left them on Mose Jakande's helicopter for Luke Hobbs to shoot.
