Looking for an anime where the main protagonist wears a white top and a shorts, has a sword on his back with a red grip and summons a robot or some kind of a suit by using a "COMMA" shaped locket wherein the boy stands on a golden dragon..he has a fat short dark guy as his sidekick who has a mechanical robot too.

I watched this like 7 years back.

    Of too a good start with some good plot details and when you watched it. Do you remember if it was airing live when you watched it or re-runs? Was the language in English or Japanese? Take a look at this guide to help us get a better idea of the story. – Edlothiad Dec 4 '17 at 10:05

His stocky companion is Shibaraku, who, like many of the characters in the Wataru series, has his own robot - Senjinmaru:
