Doronjo is a major villain in the Time Bokan anime metaseries, and the main antagonist in Yatterman (both the 1977 and 2008 versions, as well as the 2009 live action movie). She is the leader of the Doronbo Gang, a trio of supervillains working for the mysterious Dokurobei, the real big bad of Yatterman.
She is voiced by Noriko Ohara in the original 1977 animation, Eri Kitamura in 2008 remake, and portrayed by Kyoko Fukada in the live-action film.
Personality and traits
Doronjo is known for her vanity, smugness and cunning. Although she presents herself as a fearsome villain, she is a bit of an clumsy airhead and prone to childish fits of anger when she and her henchmen are defeated by the Yattermen.
Her gang includes fellow Doronbo members Boyacky Butsukusa and Tonzura Sutakora. Boyacky is the gadgeteer genius with a big, pointy nose, and Tonzura is the brutish strongman of the team.
The individual episodes of both versions of Yatterman follow a similar plot. The Doronbo gang is told of the location of a dokuro stone fragment or ring by the mysterious Dukurobei. Typically, Dokurobei delivers his message through an exploding gadget, which tears Doronjo’s clothes, humiliating her. The gang then sets up a fraudulent enterprise to earn a quick buck in order to build a robot, or mecha. The gang then proceeds to the location indicated by Dokurobei; however, they are stopped in their tracks by Yatterman 1 and 2 and their mechas. Typically, the Doronbo gang robot would get the upper hand in the initial phase of the battle; however Yatterman would feed his mecha an energy pill. This prompts the mecha to produce small robots that dismantle or destroy the Doronbo robot. Doronjo and her accomplices are attacked and humiliated by the robots in various ways, including tearing their outfits apart. They do however escape, but only to be punished and humiliated by Dokurobei for their failure.
- She is called Miss Dronio in the italian dub of Yatterman.
