|“||Big G!? (Takeshi Gouda: "M-mommy?") No more picking on Noby! (Takeshi Gouda: I'M SORRY, MOMMY!)||”|
— Nobita mimics Mrs. Gouda's voice.
Gian's mother (ジャイアンの母 Mrs. Gouda) is the mother of Takeshi (Gian) and Jaiko. She's the owner of a small but successful shop, as well as the only person that Gian is deathly afraid of, possibly due to how big and strong she is. Mrs. Gouda's constant abusive punishments suggest that Gian may have inherited his mother's ancestral bullish trait. She mostly remains angry with Gian, but is affectionate to everyone, especially Nobita. She is the owner of a grocery shop and has Gian do the jobs and chores around the grocery shop.
In many episodes, it is seen that Mrs. Gouda has given Gian the responsibility of taking care of the shop, but Gian would rather go and play with his friends or read comic books, even bully someone (but mostly Nobita), which angers Mrs. Gouda very much. However, in a rare case that Gian looks after the store like he was told, Mrs. Gouda will be very happy and may even reward him for his effort.
Mrs. Gouda is good friends with Mrs. Nobi, Mrs. Minamoto and Mrs. Honekawa. However, she sometimes cannot stand Mrs. Honekawa due to her constant bragging about her jewelry and cooking skills.
Mrs. Gouda's hair is tied up into a bun and she often wears a green shirt with a brown skirt. Unlike the other housewives, Mrs. Gouda is a strong woman and can easily carry large household objects on her own.
- Takeshi Goda - Gian is her first son and she is noticeably very strict and aggressive towards him than Jaiko, even more so than Tamako towards Nobita most likely due to Gian's mischievous, selfish and violent nature. Mrs. Gouda often gives Gian the responsibility to take care of the shop or deliver the goods to the customers. She also punishes her son for his bad behavior such as bullying other children. Despite being strict, she also has a kind side and loves her son dearly. She would often prepare Gian's favorite foods for him alongside Jaiko and/or rewards him when he does his job properly.
- Jaiko Goda - Jaiko is her only daughter that she genuinely cares and always seems very passive and kind around her.
- Mr. Gouda - Although their relationship isn't depicted, they presumably have a good relationship as they sometimes take a vacation together, leaving Gian to take care of the house (and Jaiko) by himself.
- In the 1973 anime, Gian's mother was dead and Gian lived exclusively with his dad. It is not known why she was revived in the 1979 and 2005 anime versions.
