The Yonko are the four most powerful pirates in the world of One Piece. Introduced first by Garp shortly after the events of the Enies Lobby arc, the Yonko were described to be four pirates who rule the New World, the second half of the Grand Line, like Kings with no one strong enough to oppose them directly. To balance them out, an alliance between the Marines and the Shichibukai was needed, which just goes to show how powerful they truly are. Before the Paramount War, the ranks of the Yonko were made up of Shanks, Whitebeard, Kaido, and Big Mom. After the death of Whitebeard, Blackbeard rose to this position. The world of One Piece saw a drastic shift in power after the two-year time skip when Luffy finally set out to challenge the supremacy of the Yonko and the Admirals of the Navy. During the Wano Country arc, two of the Yonko, Big Mom and Kaido, fell which triggered an era of chaos.
After crushing them and claiming all their territory, Blackbeard was finally given this position.
As expected, the vacant positions had to be filled by new candidates and after a thorough process, the World Government decided to pick the four most prominent pirates in the world and dub them the new Yonko. These new Yonko include Shanks, Blackbeard, Luffy, and Buggy. Out of the current Four Emperors, Shanks is the oldest one, having risen to the position 6 years prior to the current events of the story. Four years before Luffy set off on his journey, Shanks became a Yonko somehow, despite having lost his apparently dominant arm. As such, he has the highest active bounty from the current Yonko which amounts to 4, 089,100.00 berries. Shanks is an incredibly powerful pirate and his crew, the Red Hair Pirates, are known to be the most balanced pirate crew with no known weaknesses. All of his Officers are said to be quite strong, making him the most balanced crew out of the Four Emperors. Blackbeard, on the other hand, rose to this position after the Payback War against the Whitebeard Pirates during the two-year timeskip. After crushing them and claiming all their territory, Blackbeard was finally given this position. Having killed Whitebeard, stolen his Devil Fruit, and then acquired all his territories and his allies, he solidified himself as one of the strongest people on the seas and gained a bounty of 2.246 billion berries. The newest additions to the ranks of the Yonko are Monkey D. Luffy and Buggy.
Fans have followed Luffy's journey from the very beginning of the story and over the years, he's become an incredibly powerful pirate. Following the two-year timeskip, Luffy's strength rose to a whole new level, and he became powerful enough to challenge the likes of the Yonko. In the Wano Country arc, he gained mastery over his Conqueror's Haki and awakened his legendary Devil Fruit, called Hito Hito no Mi, Model: Nika. With these powers, he defeated Yonko Kaido and thus took his position as one of the Emperors of the Sea. Buggy, on the other hand, is a rather interesting addition to their ranks. While on paper, he is quite weak and couldn't possibly even stand up to a mere Yonko Commander, he has terrific influence in the world. Not only is Buggy a former member of the Roger Pirates, but he's also a sworn brother of Yonko Shanks. At the same time, Buggy was central to the Impel Down breakout and acquired countless powerful allies, some of which were from Level 6 of the prison. Furthermore, he has a great monopoly over the underworld and his allies even included the Giants of Elbaf until recently. As such Buggy's addition to the ranks of the Yonko is completely justified, however, his current bounty isn't known. Eiichiro Oda, the author of One Piece, is known for his masterful foreshadowing and with the current Four Emperors, he has displayed this skill once again.
One Piece's 25th volume, titled "The Hundred Million Man," saw Oda draw Luffy, Shanks, Blackbeard, and Buggy on the cover. Little did fans know that these four figures will be central to the final saga of the story. After the end of the Wano war, fans came to know that the exact same characters were described by Oda as the next Four Emperors of the Sea., these four characters will play a crucial role in the final saga of the story, which is said to kick off from chapter 1054, and will be published after One Piece's one-month-long hiatus. Fans have waited for decades to see Shanks in action and with the final saga now on the horizon, their wishes will finally be granted as the red-haired man finally makes his move. At the same time, Blackbeard will be the key to the endgame of One Piece. After all, he is Luffy's natural enemy, paralleling his light with his darkness. Blackbeard aims to become the Pirate King just like Luffy and will most certainly stand in his way at some point in time. Buggy, on the other hand, has had a history of failing upwards. It wouldn't be surprising if he even gets to Laugh Tale somehow and acquires the One Piece or, at the very least, finds out all the truth about the history of the world. The current Four Emperors will certainly define a new era and pave way for the end of One Piece.
This list describes characters from the anime and manga series Doraemon. Also listed are their original NTV voice actors (1973), followed by their TV Asahi voice actors (1979-2005; 2005-present). Part of the 22nd century characters are listed in The Doraemons. Each main character represents a primary school student archetype. Nobita appears in every episode of the anime, while Doraemon appears in most episodes, sometimes being substituted (for medical checkup or on leave) by his sister, Dorami. Note: In some translations of Doraemon, the names of these characters are different from the original names. 2.9 Nobisuke Nobi Jr. Albert in the Cinar dub of the series, is the title character and co-protagonist of the series. He is a cat-like robot from the future. He was yellow-skinned and had ears originally. However, his ears were accidentally eaten by a robot mouse. It left him heartbroken and caused his skin to turn blue. People often mistake him for a raccoon dog. He is sent back in time by Sewashi (Nobita's Great-great-grandson) to aid Nobita. Doraemon possesses a 4-dimensional pocket from which he can acquire various kinds of futuristic tools, gadgets, and playthings from a future department store.
He also has the tendency to panic during emergencies, characterized by him frantically trying to pull out a very much-needed tool from his pocket, only to produce a huge assortment of household items and unwanted gadgets. Still, Doraemon is very friendly and intelligent, not to mention long-suffering because of Nobita's antics. Since Sewashi sent Doraemon to the past, Doraemon has been living as the unofficial fourth member of Nobita's family and acts like a second son to Nobita's parents, since despite being a robot, he requires basic needs for a person, such as eating, and also sleeps in the closet of Nobita's bedroom. He also fears mice greatly (due to a robot mouse having eaten his ears), even go crazy about it and pull out devastating gadgets, and most of the times, Nobita saves Doraemon in such situations. Although he has no fingers in most media, he can hold things because of the suction cups in his hands. His favorite food is Dorayaki. He has also been shown to date with normal female cat. He is the elder brother of Dorami.
Nobita Nobi (野比, Nobi Nobita, English dub: Sidney in the Cinar dub, Specky in the Speedy dub, and Noby Nobi in the Bang Zoom! dub) is the co-protagonist of the series. He wears glasses, a red or yellow polo shirt with a white collar, and blue or black shorts and white socks and light blue shoes. Although he's not good at sports, he's good at shooting. He is usually accompanied by Doraemon, who functions as his caretaker. Although he's not good at sports, he's good at shooting and has been reflected in the movies many time. He's also good at string figure which sometime considered a girls' game. Son of Tamako and Nobisuke Nobi. Future father of Nobisuke (his son). Future husband or boyfriend of Shizuka and great-great-grandfather of Sewashi. Taurus), nicknamed Shizuka-chan (しずかちゃん) is a smart, kind and pretty girl. She is often represented by the color pink, and is seen wearing a pink shirt and skirt.
The word 'Shizuka (しずか)' means 'Quiet'. She is Nobita's best friend. She does not shun Nobita due to his failing grades, lazy disposition or constant failures. In fact, she often tries to encourage him to do better, though she usually fails to convince him. Shizuka likes to take a bath several times a day; however, a running gag in the series is that she is sometimes interrupted by a sudden appearance of Nobita (sometimes Doraemon, Gian, or Suneo) usually due to misuse of Doraemon's gadgets like the Anywhere Door (Doko Demo Doa in Japanese). Shizuka's skirt is also frequently seen getting flipped, either by Nobita misusing Doraemon's gadgets, or by the wind. Scenes in which her underwear is seen, or she is seen bathing, have been removed from the dubbed versions, especially in India, Europe, the United States and the United Kingdom. Her true passions are sweet potatoes, which she would rather keep to herself out of the knowledge of others, and the violin, in which her playing is just as horrendous as Gian's singing. She is also known for taking piano lessons unwillingly due to her mother's wishes (as she loves violin more), which is sometimes a reason for declining to hang out with friends (but she plays piano better than violin). Shizuka is an animal lover and keeps two pets at home: a dog, who is saved from succumbing to illness by Nobita and Doraemon in one story; and a canary which runs away on multiple occasions and causing Shizuka and Nobita to run around the city chasing her down.
