- This article is for Nobita Nobi's grandfather. Don't confuse this character with Nobirou Nobi, Nobita Nobi's uncle
Nobita's grandfather died before Nobita was born. Nobita's grandfather appears in two or three episodes. Nobita and Doraemon meet him by going to the past using time machine. He appears to love his son (Nobita's father) a lot, but does not seem to express his affection to his son, so that he doesn't get spoiled.
He was shown to be very strict and rude toward his son; Nobisuke because he valued physical strength and athleticism which Nobisuke lacked, but even though deep down he loved him so much as seen in the one episode when Nobisuke get first prize in school in painting, through being harsh toward him, he secretly took his painting (which Nobisuke has thrown in the dustbin) and preserve it, this shown his love and affection towards his son.
