Doraemon is a cat-type robot in the 22nd century. He is 129.3 cm tall, the girth of the chest are 129.3 cm and his weight is 129.3 kg. He has a pocket of the fourth dimension at his stomach. His favorite food is dorayaki which he eats everyday. He has a younger sister whose name is Dorami.

He came to the house of Nobi Nobita from the 22nd century taking a time machine, and he lives with the Nobi. Nobita, the only child of the family, is a friend of Doraemon. He is bullied by his friend Jaian and Suneo almost everyday. In such a time, Doraemon takes out tools made in the 22nd century from his pocket of the fourth dimension for Nobita to punish them. So, Nobita always trusts Doraemon.

Not only he has tools to punish bullies, but he also has various tools from his pocket. For example, take-copter is a tool to fly in the sky. It has a propeller and put it on head. Docodemo-door is a door which enables people to go anyplace. Small light is a light to make a person or objects small.

I said Doraemon is a cat-type robot, but he does not have ears, which his ears were eaten by rats. Therefore, he dislikes rats and this is his weak point. If you pull his small tail, he will stop moving. This is also his weak point.

He was created by F. Fujiko.
