He is terrible at baseball and many other sports, often letting down Gian's baseball team.
Despite Nobita's flawed personality, he is a good person that is a rather likable character with a couple of positive traits. He is known to take pity on stray animals and is kind to most people in need of help, sometimes even Gian and Suneo Honekawa, who bully him often. His thinks from out of the box leads to new and bizarre ideas of ways to use Doraemon's high tech devices.
In the beginning of the series, Nobita is a rather lazy person who has a cycle of constantly napping after school, keeping him up late when he wakes up late for school.
This cycle of laziness occurs almost every day, keeping him up late night and wake up late the next morning, hindering him academically.
Nobita is voiced by Yoshiko Ota in the 1973 series, Noriko Ohara from 1979-March 2005, and Megumi Ohara from April 2005 onwards.
In one of the last chapters of the manga, it is seen that Nobita is the one who invents Doraemon (who is a 22nd century cat-shaped robot), though that ending is one of the three official endings.
An example of this is the new sport of free flying with the use of Doraemon's "power of wind" fans (fans that can create a gust of wind with just a gentle swish) and how he used the voice hardener, a device considered useless to Doraemon, for transportation.
Another example of his creativity was when he was provided with an imagination pill to make him think that he was in a swimming pool while being taught how to swim.
His imagination is the reason why he can write a great narrative, even with so many spelling and grammatical mistakes.
Both events show Nobita's amazing talent at thinking outside the box.
Nobita's creativity is proof enough of his high intelligence, Unlike Dekisugi Hidetoshi, he lags behind in showing it.
