An Exorcist (祓魔師 (エクソシスト) Ekusoshisuto) is an individual with the abilities and training to combat Demons. Throughout the history of Assiah, there have been many different groups of Exorcists that protect humanity against these malevolent entities. To become a qualified exorcist, some basic conditions must be met, the acquisition of a Meister and the passing of a certification exam. Essentially the most basic qualification for any aspiring Exorcist, the term Meister refers to the particular combat skill(s) an Exorcist possesses. There are five different classes of Meister in which individual can become qualified; the Knight, an Exorcist who uses a melee weapon; the Dragoon, an Exorcist who uses Firearms; the Tamer, an Exorcist who summons demon familiars; the Aria, an Exorcist who chants sacred verses; and the Doctor, an Exorcist who heals injuries and illnesses caused by demons. The rank of an Exorcist is determined by the class and level of demon the exorcist managed to defeat by themselves during the certification exam. The demon's class determines the rank of the exorcist (Upper, Middle, Lower), and its level determining their status (First or Second). The Paladins vs. one of the Eight Demon Kings. Paladin (聖騎士 (パラディン) Paradin) is the highest rank of Exorcist, belonging to the Exorcist who is recognized as the strongest of them all. There can only be one Paladin at a time, and typically, once an individual becomes the Paladin they keep the title until they are deceased.
The lowest rank of qualified Exorcists.
The appointment is exceedingly difficult, with the minimum condition being that they master all five meisters. In the anime, it's suggested that Paladins are allowed to choose a new uniform with the color of their choice, given Arthur wears a modified white uniform and Yukio wore a green version of his normal uniform. Arc Knight (四大騎士 (アークナイト) kunaito) is the second highest rank among Exorcists, second only to the Paladin. Only 4 people can hold the rank of Arc Knight at a time. Honorary Knight (名誉騎士 (キャンサー) Kyansā) is a special elite rank, above the Upper Rank but below the Arc Knights. Mephisto has had for over two hundred years, due to his immortality. Whether this is a rank exclusive for him, or others possibly share it remains unknown. Upper Class (上級 Jōkyū) or Senior Exorcists. They deal with the stronger Demons that could potentially bring about significant damage to human society. Some Upper Class Exorcists are branch chiefs who command all the other exorcists in the sect. Other Upper Class Exorcists tend to be given unique responsibilities. Middle Class (中級 Chūkyū) or Intermediate Exorcists. They deal with Demons of average strength that could cause noticeable damage if allowed to go unchecked. Teachers who train new Exorcists seem to be at least Middle class, if not higher. Lower Class (下級 Kakyū) or Junior Exorcists. The lowest rank of qualified Exorcists. They deal with the low level Demons who are more of a minor annoyance than a threat to humans. They will sometimes supervise Exwires on simple missions. Exwires being briefed on a minor mission. Exwires (候補生 (エクスワイア) Ekusuwaia) are student-Exorcists ranked directly above a Page. Exwires still attend classes and study to become Meisters, but are able to perform non-combat missions, such as maintenance and errand running. Before becoming an Exwire, the individual begins as a Page (祓魔塾生 (ペイジ) or (ペイジ) Peiji), learning the most basic elements of exorcism and Demonology. To become an Exwire, a Page must pass the Exwire Authorization Exam. The exam consists of both written tests and a field test, which determines the class' overall combat abilities and teamwork skills.
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 has also been shown to date with normal female cat.
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.
He is usually accompanied by Doraemon, who functions as his caretaker.
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.
Though they consider each other only as friends.
She sometimes fansies some handsome idols on TV. Besides Nobita, Shizuka is also close to her classmate and popular student Dekisugi. Though they consider each other only as friends. Gemini), named Buster in the Cinar dub and Bob in the Speedy dub, usually known by the nickname "Gian" (「ジャイアン」, "Jaian", English: Big G) is a strong and quick-tempered local bully. He also frequently steals other children's stuff (especially Nobita's and Suneo's) under the pretext of "borrowing" them, unless the toy is damaged. He is known for his awful singing voice, though he considers himself a great singer. To prove this, Gian sometimes "invites" others to attend his concerts, under the threat of beatings. His singing is so horrible that, once, Nobita and Doraemon try to mute it in a silent world, his writings of the song lyrics in a board end up having the same effect as when they hear them. Though his voice is terrible in one of the episodes it was shown that a girl liked his singing. In some films, his singing is enhanced to become an effective weapon (as in 'Nobita's Great Adventure in the South Seas'). In some episodes when his voice is recorded and he hears it, he instantly denies it being his voice and threatens to beat up the person who his songs in a very bad way (which is an irony).
Gian is also confident in cooking, but just like his singing, his hand made food can be a nightmare for other people very easily. However, Gian does not hesitate to help his friends when they are in real trouble. Throughout the series, particularly the films, he is often the one who voices the most concern and refuses to look away when there is a problem, an opposite of Suneo's cowardice. While he is described by others as daunting and intimidating, he is very sensitive and prone to crying when something touching happens, and he actually values his friends highly, a feeling which his friends sometimes reciprocate. Gian also has a soft spot for his younger sister, Jaiko, and usually tries to prevent her from trouble, even if she can perfectly handle her situation. Gian basically is a bullying 'tsundere'. His catchphrase is "What's mine is mine. What's yours is also mine." (「俺の物は、俺の物。お前の物も俺の物。」, "Ore no mono wa, ore no mono. Omae no mono mo ore no mono."), also known as Gianism (ジャイアニズム, Jaianizumu ) in Japan (the Japanese band Nightmare have borrowed the term for their albums Gianism Best Ofs and Gianizm). Pisces) is the fox-faced (inherited from his mother) rich child who loves to flaunt his material wealth before everyone, especially Nobita. A lot of the stories start with Suneo showing off some new video game, toy or pet which evokes Nobita's envy.
