Suneo is pretty mean in all the cartoons except in the movies and sometimes he acts pretty brave.

Takeshi Gouda, (commonly known by his nickname Gian) is the bully of the pack. He is strong and tough but has a terrible singing voice. He is often jealous of Suneo and Nobita because of all the things they have. When he feels jealous and not happy, he often just steals their stuff and tortures them.
In one episode, Shizuka is given a Snowhite apple by Nobita, it is a Doraemon’s gadget which can make anyone fall asleep after taken a bite from it. They can wake up only after someone kisses them. Unfortunately, Gian was the one who eat it and Nobita is forced to kiss him.
Gian loves to read comic books but his grades are terrible. He “rules” the neighbourhood with force and he is also the captain of the local baseball team – The Giants. His mother and father are the people he fears most.
Dekisugi is a perfect boy who is handsome, well-mannered, good in sports and all the extra-curricular activities as well as academics. Every girl in the neighbourhood likes him but Dekisugi only likes Shizuka. Although he is popular but Suneo is even more popular because Suneo likes to buy expensive presents and gifts for the neighbourhood girls.
Dekisugi’s name is a Japanese pun meaning “over talented”. Shizuka is the perfect match for Dekisugi, like-wise for Dekisugi. He is kind and modest about his own talents and he never brags. Because of this, Nobita always try to get him to do his homework in order to make his day at school a lot better.
