* CulturalTranslation: The English dub being aired in Disney XD will replace most of the Japanese cultural icons and items with objects that are more familiar to American young viewers. For example, yen notes are replaced with dollar bills, chopsticks will be replaced with forks, Japanese text will be replaced with English text, and Doraemon's TrademarkFavoriteFood, dorayaki, will be referred as "yummy buns."[[note]]Oddly enough, the actual dub's first episode and the website bring up the name actually being dorayaki, but default to calling them yummy buns otherwise.[[/note]] These edits are somewhat justifiable, since many American elementary school children may not be familiar with some of the Japanese cultural items (such as a dorayaki). The setting has been changed to America as well.

** Another episode started with Giant, Suneo and Shizuka playing April Fool's joke on Nobita. One of the jokes include [[DudeNotFunny ''his house is on fire'']], so he has the right to be panic being the paranoid kid he is. Enraged by his friends fooling him, Nobita pleads to Doraemon for a device that makes its user able to make all April Fool's joke become reality. And since this is Nobita we're talking about, he's going to abuse it for his own good.

** In the sound department, the dubbing quality has improved a lot in the Malaysian version. Early dubs mute the background effects and music completely when the characters talk, presumably because they were unable to secure a minus-one version of the audio track to work with and didn't want to go the VoiceoverTranslation route back then. More recent dubs and redubs have the [=VAs=] record over a minus-one of the audio track and thus the BGM and sound effects doesn't fade out when the characters talk anymore.



** The english dub that airs on DisneyXD can also count.

* BuriedAlive: At one time Nobita misuses a gadget that lets him to hide in anything to cause mischief. When it malfunctions, he is unable to get out, and start to worry about buildings crashing on him or being stranded forever (even with an image of his skeleton remains included). Cue his friends ''putting up a victorious armfold on the spot he's hiding''.



** Another medium-length story has Nobita and Doraemon fight the bad guys from StarWars, including a Darth Vader parody. A good thing that those space races are much smaller than humans.

* ElaborateUndergroundBase: One of Doraemon's future gadgets allow instant creation of one of these. It can be big enough to become a city of its own, which Nobita then exploit to create his own dictatorship (PlayedForLaughs). However, one of the movie deal with the sinister encounter with TheReptilians when Nobita and co DugTooDeep...



* {{Fanservice}}: Shizuka naked in the bath, PantyShot and the boys get naked from time to time. Downplayed in the remake.

* FirstContactFauxPas: One story where an alien scout ship was sent to earth, the (mini) ship comes across Nobita and Doraemon watching a kind of SuperSentai show where they beat up aliens and the aliens in the scout ship concludes that humans are scary.

Added DiffLines:

* FamilyThemeNaming: Pretty much all the male Nobis are named after their last name: '''Nobi'''ta, '''Nobi'''suke, ''[[NamesTheSame the other]]'' '''Nobi'''suke, '''Nobi'''rou, '''Nobi'''ru...
** [[OddNameOut Sewashi is the obvious exception]], but the use of the theme may have died out by then considering that he's Nobita's [[TheFuture great-great-grandson]], and at some point they would've run out of suffixes.


Added DiffLines:

* JacobMarleyWarning: It's Doraemon's raison d'etre to stop Nobita from becoming a FutureLoser, but occasionally, Future Nobita himself appears to whip his younger self into studying diligently. These are some of the most unsettling episodes, since Future Nobita knows his past-self's tricks and possess Doraemon's future gadgets.

* AmericanKirbyIsHardcore: The American dub of the 2005 anime is like this. The dub emphasizes more on the episodes that are action oriented and mostly lacks the episodes that focus on heartwarming relationships. Even the background music in the dub is much more upbeat and action oriented compared to the calm and lighthearted background music in the Japanese version. Not surprisingly, the season 2 promo [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zx9nfDRh9jQ heavily emphasizes on the action aspect of the dub]].
* AndYouThoughtItWasReal:
** One episode involves the cast getting ready to fight a bunch of MoleMen after one of them had a premonition that they were invading the surface. Turns out, it was just shooting for a movie.
** The 2015 movie "Nobita's Space Heroes" has the roles flipped: this time, the cast is shooting for a movie and an alien comes to them for help thinking they are superheroes.
* AnimatedAdaptation: Three of them, in fact -- one that is one of the longest running shows in history, and an immediate reboot after it ended that will probably go on to match it. And a 1970s anime that we don't talk about. And 30+ movies (the listing at the top is incomplete).

* ProphecyTwist: In the first chapter, Doraemon proves he's from the future by predicting that Nobita will hang himself in 30 minutes and then be burned alive ten minutes later. Nobita scoffs, but then thirty minutes later, he slips while getting a shuttlecock off the roof and his shirt collar gets caught on a tree branch, making another character joke that he hung himself. Ten minutes later, he falls into a full bathtub and dries himself out in front of a space heater. The phrase "to burn alive" in Japanese is similar to "to warm in front of a fire."



* TheRemake: For newer audiences and to keep the series alive - with ArtEvolution (and, unfortunately, more censorship).
** Also several of the movies.

* RealityWarper: Doraemon, with his gadgets, can warp reality to it's full extent. Check out the "What If" phone booth. It's able to create a whole new world based on the wish.

censorship). Also several of the movies.



* RippleEffectProofMemory: Averted. Everyone, not just Nobita and Doraemon who has any relation to the TimeTravel will remember the events, although this rarely happened or even mentioned. The most notable and recurring example is Nobita's grandmother who remembered everything about Nobita's multiple visits to the past.



* SandIsWater: Sand ships and sand dolphins can be purchased in the ridiculously advanced future; in one NonSerialMovie, Nobita and company discover that Sinbad the Sailor (of the ''Literature/ArabianNights'') was the beneficiary of such gifts from a grateful time traveling tourist who'd got stranded in the desert and saved by Sinbad.



* ShiningCity: ''Doraemon'' portrays Tokyo and other metropolis in the world being this way in the future. Calculating from the age of the daddy Nobita, it should have been within the 2000s...

to:

%%* SidekickExMachina* ShrinkRay: One of the recurring gadgets in Doraemon is a "Small Light". A flashlight-like shrink ray which shrinks any object and person down and does wear out eventually as seen in one movie. There's also a "Big Light" which does the opposite.


Added DiffLines:

* SnotBubble: Common occurrence with Nobita.
* SobriquetSexSwitch: An episode has Nobita wish himself into a reality where he was a girl and everyone calls him "Nobiko".
* SolidClouds: The gadget "Compaction Cloud Gas" that transforms ordinary clouds into this.
