Fathers in anime...they're wacky, overbearing, and sometimes downright evil. But hey, that's why we love them. For this list we're ranking the greatest anime fathers of all time, with the help of your votes. We're pitting funny anime dads like Ichigo's father Isshin Kurosaki against just plain badass dads like Bunta from Initial D (have you ever met someone so cool that they never even open their eyes?!). Upvote your favorite anime dad, regardless of good of a father they are. 

One common trope in anime is the villain dad, but we want you to vote for your favorite characters, regardless of whether or not they are evil anime fathers. Bad anime dads like Gendo Ikari and Yujiro Hanma are listed below, but just because someone is evil doesn't make them a bad character. If you really hate those characters, feel free to use that downvote button and send them to the bottom of the list.

If your favorite father character in anime is missing from the list, you can add it and see if anyone else votes for your pick.
