** 'Go! Go! Nobitaman' is a {{Homage}} to Franchise/{{Superman}}, in which Nobita and co. fight off a powerful CrimeSyndicate on another planet inhabited with HumanAliens with their newly gained SuperStrength, NighInvulnerability, and jumping ability that looks almost like {{Flight}}. These abilities emerge as the planet has much less gravity than Earth. Nobita even wears blue-and-red costume with a cape and a big 'N' on the chest and calls himself Nobitaman during the final fight.

Doraemon is one of the [[LongRunners longest running]] {{anime}} series and the most successful work of Creator/FujikoFujio. The title character, Doraemon, is the quintessential example of the RobotBuddy: he is a robotic cat from the future sent back to help the socially inept Nobita Nobi through the use of futuristic technology (known as "Dogu" [Japanese for "tools"]) produced from his [[HammerSpace Fourth Dimensional pocket]]. Typically, the devices are used to impress his love interest Shizuka Minamoto or humiliate the street bully, Takeshi "Gian"[[note]]Referred as ''"[[SpellMyNameWithAnS Giant]]"'' in some translations[[/note]] Goda. Inevitably, there is some form of PhlebotinumBreakdown, and Nobita must sort through the root problem himself. The overused story arc is somewhat of [[TheArtifact an artifact]] of the series' origin during the 1970s, criticizing Japanese culture's increasing over-reliance on superfluous technology.

* ClassicalAntihero: Nobita is a total loser, a crybaby, and a lazy bum who prefers using tools to cheat than trying to improve himself, but he is naturally a kid with a gentle heart who can be brave and reliable when he needs to.

* SarcasmBlind: Nobita. One episode has Suneo sarcastically suggesting Nobita to swallow some of the dirt under Dekisugi's fingernails to get smarter, as Nobita once again gets another zero. Nobita actually asks Dekisugi for his fingernail dirt afterwards. Though it may be instead of being SarcasmBlind, Nobita feels there's no way he can get smarter, he tries desperately with even the most improbable way, which ironically makes him look even stupider.

** In one story, after Nobita tells [[TheLittleMermaid]] unmodified to his little cousin, she wails violently. To make her less sad, Nobita attempts to Disneyfy the story by entering the story world. [[Spoiler:He succeeds, yet his cousin still cries, this time for the changed ending.]]

* InvisibilityCloak: Some of Doraemon's pocket gadgets are capable of invisibility. Fujiko F. Fujio was mindful of why true invisibility and vision didn't mix, and so the ones that can be applied to humans mostly work on perception filters.

For example, the 'Blind Spot Star', which makes the image of the one who wears it always fall on the others' blind spot, and the 'pebble cap', which makes the one who wears it as unnoticable as a pebble at the side of the road.

* SeriousBusiness: Parodied in a chapter when Nobita changed reality so that playing with strings became the SeriousBusiness of the world. There are even world wide tournaments on who can make the the best string figures, which is more popular than any sport. Of course, since Doraemon has no fingers, he doesn't enjoy it.

* UselessSuperpowers: Not really useless, but not really useful in the setting. Even though he's bad at almost everything, Nobita is really talented at shooting and Ayatori (a traditional Japanese game). He sometimes says that he's supposed to be born in the old west. There is even an episode where he was stuck in the old west, and became a sherrif's deputy. The talent is obviously more useful in the movies.

* WhatIf: Several times through Moshimo-box, which is basically a "What if machine".

to:

* WeaponWieldsYou: Denkoumaru, a katana which beats opponents automatically by taking control of the wielder's arms. Obviously very usful in the [[BigDamnMovie Big Damn Movies]]. Unlike most other examples, this gadget still just beats those who are deemed as enemies by its wielder, instead of choosing its own enemies, for it doesn't have a will but an AI for calculating the most effective moves. It can still cause the wielder to fight unwillingly against those who threaten his/her life, though.
