Top 10 Characters You’d Hate to Have As Your Father

Perhaps in honor of the imminent arrival of Father’s Day, a ranking has made its way to anime fans asking which character they would be most troubled to call father – the list boasting several less than admirable contenders from ancient shows, with one such example assuming first place.

The ranking:

1. Ittetsu Hoshi (Kyojin no Hoshi)


2. Bakabon’s Papa (Tensai Bakabon)


3. Kankichi Ryotsu (Kochikame)


4. Goku (Dragon Ball Z)


5. Vegeta (Dragon Ball Z)


6. Yuzan Kaibara (Oishinbo)


7. Hiroshi Sakura (Chibi Maruko-chan)


8. Hiroshi Nohara (Crayon Shin-chan)


9. Namihei Isono (Sazae-san)


10. Daijiro Ohara (Kochikame)

    Shinji was just a horrible son, Gendo gave him robots, women, and cougars.

    If Gendo comes with Rei and giant robots I'm sure many wouldn't mind at all to have him as father.

    But I also thought he's usually the first person who comes to mind when you think of "bad anime fathers", so I'm surprised he's not here either. I guess it's just cuz he's just such a cool looking dude.

    How is he bad?
    Gives is son giant robot to pilot.
    Has him room with hot chick who can drive.
    Even gets him with with another hot chick whose his age.
    And since he doesn't seem to like girls finds a boy for him!

    Shinji's just a whiny little shit, and the main reason why I hate Eva so much I never finished the first season; I just couldn't take any more of the little fuck's incessant whining.

    Um... Decade. If you're referring to the original show in1995... 2005...2015...

    Or do you forget that there is supposedly a remake with a final episode coming to the theaters after 2nd Impact? 2015....

    Hideaki Anno where's the new episode? 4th movie)))

    Then I don't get why Goku and Vegeta are there because if they're your biological father, you'd be half Saiyan!

    Not to mention that being combined with the rest of humanity in one big puddle via Instrumentality is closer than most otaku have ever been or will ever be to having sex.

    I agree Goku is an incredibly horrible father, but vegeta? He's an awesome dad behind his bad guy facade.

    Vegeta? What are you people talking about, he's a great father! He's always there, encouraging you to become the best of the best, always supportive in the ways that can best motivate you, and willing to kick your ass if you're a bad kid, plus, if anyone bullies you, he'll either turn you into a Super Saiyan or kick their asses for you

    lol you obviously didnt watch some of the "Cell Saga" huh. Vegeta had a kid and wife that whole time and he didnt give two shits about them. He constantly treated them like a nuisance; at one point their lives were even in danger but he ignored that just to pursue his opponent. Future Trunks annoyance with his fathers treatment was a main story point they had during that Saga. Even in the buu saga he was still kinda bad and let his own pride take over.

    and why did Vegeta let his pride take over again?
    It was because after Cell he settle down and became a "family man" and cared about them. He thought that made him weak and wanted to be evil again. But even through that he got kid Trunks out the way so he could blow himself up to save his family

    Lol Goku being on the list for literally never being around for Gohan or Goten for that matter. I mean think about it he was either dead or off training through Gohan's childhood and He was dead during half of Goten's then he goes off to train for years on end. Tfw Hercule is a better father than Goku or Vegeta.

    Vegeta ain't that bad though at least regular timeline Vegeta really seems to care about kid Trunks.

    Hell even GT Vegeta was keeping Teen/Grown Trunks inline and wouldn't let him shake of running Capsule Corp and there the bit where some boy were flirting with Bra and he got rid of them.

    So yeah Vegeta > Goku as far as Fatherhood.

    It was better when he was dead. The times he was around he beat the shit out from his family members under the name of "training".
    Also he never had a decent (or any) job to support his family and felt no responsibility at all towards his children.

    Where's shou tucker from fma? Pretty sure he is more than qualified for the top spot.

    Yeah, I think he flew under the radar on this one, because he should be a top pick. OTOH, up until he finally lost it and used Nina as a test subject, he seems to have treated her... fairly well, judging by her personality. So, he wasn't a *consistently* bad father, just that one time. Of course, that one time is all he needs to be #1 in my book.

    Red Green?

    Who wouldn't want that guy as your father.
    He put crap together with duct tape!
    Red Green was probably one of the best shows in the 90s.

    Not a cartoon though... wait... he was a cartoon beaver in random episodes...

    Hayate's father from Hayate no Gotoku is never mentioned by name but I think that guy should be on this list.

    The only REAL plot point that the show even to this day has long forgotten.
    And yet, it made for a far better plot-point than which girl is Hayate going to end up with.... When they ask these questions they almost immediately give the answer which ends up being pointless for them to keep continuing the Harem story, since it wasn't much of a story to begin with.

    I only wanted to know is, do his parents ever bail him out? I think the answer should be yes, but he still ends up the Sanzinen Butler anyways. (This time not as a slave to his debt.) Good way to end the series once and for all.

    The plot point is that he was literally sold to a gruesome death by his parents.

    Hayate has stated he will not forgive them, even if they changed.

    I'm amazed kogoro mori isn't on this list. he may be a loving father (even too much considering some doujinshi [hehe]), but he's useless, full of himself and perma-needy.

    Or the dad making nude shots of the female lead in Sankarea.

    I remember knowing more father figures I'd shoot on sight, but I don't remember any of them.

    How about Seiji's father in Cutey Honey? Jeez, imagine being Seiji and having such an annoying, embarrassing, lecherous old man for a father always perving after your girlfriend (as if he's never been laid before even in order to have you born). He's never helpful and always making things worse when he does help. In the manga he even has his childish "U inside U" dick hanging out for a few panels.

    I wouldn't mind Vegeta, because he actually cares about Bulma and his kids. He's rough but at least he loves his family. Wouldn't want Goku, though. He's pretty much a stranger to his own sons.

    probably because he's never home. Wether he's outside fighting powerfull enemy in another planet, or wether he's dead.

    Same here though it would suck to have Chichi as a mother.
    Vegeta is a worse father then Goku but it balances out since Bulma is a lot less crazy then Chichi.

    "it would suck to have Chichi as a mother"

    Well after the awesome pandora's box hentai I've read... there would be sucking alright, and it'd be really good.

    For sure he won't forbid you to do anything. But I hope you don't want him to act as a father, as he will forget about you for years...

    Goku risked Gohan life
    by giving the senzu bean to cell

    and Goten grew up to be a playboy is partially his fault, since he doesn't pay much attention to his sons, he only cares about battles and save the earth~

    but actually it's not the worst one, Vegeta should be worse than Goku~
