Voiced by: Yumiko Kobayashi (2011)

His real name is Judo and is actually the brain unit of Zanda Claus in Nobita and the New Steel Troops ~Angel Wings~.

  • Atrocious Alias: Pippo is the combination of "pi po", a Japanese onomatopoeia for the electronic "beeps". note  He doesn't like it. Noibta gave him the name due to Judo making "pi pi po po" sounds before they transformed him with the Translation Jelly, plus Nobita reasoned that it was a much cuter name compared to "Judo".* At the end before Pippo Disappears into Light, he tells Nobita that he loves the name.
  • Badass Adorable: Has the appearance of a baby chick and has an amazing singing voice, but have him in control of his Zanda Claus mech, he's a walking force of destruction.
  • Berserk Button: Don't imply that he's trash within his hearing range, especially when he's in his Humongous Mecha body.
  • Cry Cute: When he breaks down after his epic rant about humanity being taken over by the Steel Troops, his crying is enough to almost make you want to hug the poor guy.
  • Heel-Face Turn: A more natural one compared to the 1986 version.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: When told by Riruru that her reprogramming their equivalent of robotic Adam and Eve - Amu and Emu - in the past would mean wiping out their existence in the present, he accepted it and kept fighting against the Steel Troops.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter
  • Japanese Pronouns: Uses boku.
  • My Country, Right or Wrong
  • Redemption Equals Death / Redemption Earns Life: Knew full well that he'll cease to exist when the past is changed, but in the end is reborn, appearing as an adult Phoenix-like bird.
  • Took a Level in Kindness
  • Tsundere: Type A. Like the Steel Troops, he has a hatred of humanity, but time spent with Nobita and the gang softens him. Nobita telling him that he doesn't want to fight him causes him to break down and cement his Heel-Face Turn.
  • Verbal Tic: "Piyo", an onomatopoeia of "cheep". Which incidentally leads to his Atrocious Alias
