Moa, or better known as Angolmois is the antagonist of the movie, Doraemon: Nobita Drifts in the Universe. He is a powerful, corrokinetic entity that is responsible for the conflict in the movie including turning Lian's father evil.
Moa's nature and what kind of it was is a mystery. He first appeared as a mysterious hooded creature with a black cape whom visage obscured by a shadow with the exception of glowing red eyes. When Commander Liebert resisted Moa's influence long enough for him to blast the entity, Moa is revealed to be a skeletal-looking robot, much to everyone's confusion.
However, it's later revealed that the skeletal robot was a mere vessel, with Moa himself managed to escape death and threatened Doraemon and company with a crude body made of Freya's collection of Earth items. However, the crude body proved too large for the corridors of Rian's ship that it ultimately forced to shed it away, revealing its true form as a light green slime that immediately was frozen by Doraemon and sent to a black hole.
In the manga, Doraemon proposed Moa as an amalgamation of spitefulness within everyone's heart that somehow given physical form as a slime-like entity. This idea supported the claim of the spirit of Lian's mother who explained the testament of Moa's supernatural ability to corrupt Liebert alongside his loyal troops and Freya (temporarily). By this, it safe to assume that instead of outer space, Moa instead came from dimension within living beings' consciousness.
- Since the movie was created as a parody of Star Wars, Moa is inspired by Chancellor Palpatine. Like Palpatine, Moa can be considered as an evil incarnate in that story, has corrupted one of the protagonist's father (in this case, Commander Liebert who happened to be Lian's father) and mostly seen as a hooded figure with immense powers.
- However, the major difference between Palpatine and Moa is Palpatine used to be a human who was corrupted by his own dark powers whereas Moa is a grand manifestation of sentient being's negative emotions.
- He is similar to Agahnim, a main antagonist from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.
- In terms of true nature and origin, Moa is extremely similar to Erebus and Shadows from Shin Megami Tensei's Persona series, The Negativitron from Little Big Planet 2 , The Nothing from The Neverending Story, the Orb of Caldea from Marchen Awakens Romance series, and Don Armitage from Uchu Sentai Kyuranger. All of them are an amalgamation of negative emotion within sentient beings in the universe and very dangerous because of their nature.
