After years of non-canonical appearances in Dragon Ball anime films and video games, Broly made his in-continuity debut in 2018's aptly titled film Dragon Ball Super: Broly. Given a more sympathetic background and personality, the Legendary Super Saiyan still proved a formidable opponent for Goku and the Z Fighters, nearly destroying Earth as he was dragged into Frieza's war against the Saiyans. As fans prepare for the next big film in the franchise -- this April's Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero -- Broly is confirmed to resurface in the movie, though his motivations and allegiances are currently unknown. In the 2018 film, Broly was unable to control his mounting rage and battled against Goku and Vegeta, forcing the two longtime frenemies to form the composite warrior Gogeta through the Fusion Dance to gain the upper hand and spare the planet from further devastation. Aware that Broly was good-hearted by nature and had been manipulated all his life, the Legendary Super Saiyan's friends Cheelah and Lemo used the Dragon Balls to transport back to the planet where Broly grew up before Gogeta could deliver the killing blow. In the aftermath, Goku visited Broly and his friends to assure him there were no hard feelings, offering to help hone Broly's fighting abilities in exchange for the occasional sparring match.
39;s now a powerful ally capable of singlehandedly turning the tide of battle.
Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero will follow a resurgent Red Ribbon Army, determined to continue their longstanding vendetta against Goku for dismantling them in the original Dragon Ball anime. In the film's latest trailer, the Army unleashes its new warrior androids and kidnaps Gohan's daughter Pan to draw out the Z Fighters. Amid all the hard-hitting fights, a glimpse of Broly is seen. It is currently unclear if he makes his way back to Earth to lend the Z Fighters some vital assistance, though he's now a powerful ally capable of singlehandedly turning the tide of battle. A more likely possibility regarding his inclusion is that Goku has finally made good on his promise to train and spar with Broly on his planet. Several shots from the Super Hero trailers show Goku launching himself into action but he doesn't appear to be particularly pressured in these scenes, just having a good time instead. A closer inspection in some of these shots indicate Goku is on an alien planet at the time, suggesting he has returned to Broly's planet for friendly sparring matches and underscoring a growing friendship between the two Saiyans while the Red Ribbon Army plots and schemes back on Earth.

More whimsical, the footage of Broly in the Super Hero trailer is immediately followed by a shot of Beerus, Universe 7's God of Destruction. The planet that Goku is seen fighting on more closely resembles Beerus' divine planet than Broly's, suggesting that Beerus may be training Goku and Broly instead. Perhaps he's even training Broly to become the next God of Destruction due to the sheer combat potential the Legendary Super Saiyan possesses. Broly was introduced as something of a wild card in Dragon Ball, hard to control and capable of overpowering even a Super Saiyan Blue in his canonical debut. In contrast to the character's non-canonical iteration, this Broly is not single-mindedly obsessed with destroying Goku and anyone who stands in his way but someone who can form genuine friendships and help the Z Fighters -- so long as he can keep a clear head. It's unclear if Broly will take on the Red Ribbon Army in Super Hero but if he does, heaven help the paramilitary crime syndicate.
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.
39;s gadgets like the Anywhere Door (Doko Demo Doa in Japanese).
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.
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.
