#1: HOMER SIMPSON:
I know. I know. He abuses Bart, drinks too much, and is a horrible role model.. But he DOSE pag-ibig his family.
He often berates Bart, but the two commonly share adventures and are sometimes allies; some episodes, particularly in later seasons, ipakita that the pair have a strange respect for each other's cunning. Homer and Lisa have opposite personalities and he usually overlooks Lisa's talents, but when made aware of his neglect, does everything he can to help her. While Homer's thoughtless antics often upset his family, he has also revealed himself to be a caring father and husband: in "Lisa the Beauty Queen", (season four, 1992) he sold his cherished ride on the Duff blimp and used the money to enter Lisa in a beauty pageant so she could feel better about herself; in "Rosebud", (season five, 1993) he gave up his chance at wealth to allow Maggie to keep a cherished teddy bear, despite the ipakita also occasionally implying Homer forgets he has a third child, while the episode "And Maggie Makes Three" suggests she is the chief reason Homer took and remains at his regular job (season six, 1995); in "Radio Bart", (season three, 1992) he spearheaded an attempt to dig Bart out after he had fallen down a well; and in "A Milhouse Divided", (season eight, 1996) he arranged a surprise segundo wedding with Marge to make up for their unsatisfactory first ceremony. Homer, however, has a poor relationship with his father Abraham "Grampa" Simpson, whom he placed in a nursing tahanan as soon as he could. The Simpson family will often do their best to avoid unnecessary contact with Grampa, but Homer has shown feelings of pag-ibig for his father from time to time..
#2: MICHAEL TOWNLEY:
Sure, he's a short tempered, alcoholic, bank robbing whore mongering asshole who is a terrible role model, but, he is a good father. While he does set a terrible example for his two kids, he still loves them, and will do anything for them, like save them from computer nerds, to beating up stalkers. Sure, they may not have any respect for him, but, parents are meant to care for their children without expecting anything, and Michael does just that..
#3: RANDY MARSH:
Well-meaning but sometimes ignorant, Randy Marsh is a relatively devoted father to Stan and Shelly. While his drinking occasionally gets him into trouble, Randy's PhD in geology means he's often asked to solve situations he knows nothing about, like stopping a volcanic eruption or burrowing through legions of hippies. But, whether he's teaching Stan about puberty or taking an active interest in his hobbies, Randy still finds time to bond with his son..
#4: NED FLANDERS:
Ned Flanders was the consummate father. To Rod, Todd, Bart, Lisa, Maggie and hell, even Homer. I spit on the patience of Job and would tell him to observe Ned "Okeley Dokeley" Flanders in action. This man was a saint. Sure all that pent-up frustration will sooner or later lead to a murderous rampage but for now, Ned Flanders is undoubtedly the greatest cartoon dad of all time..
#5: JOEL (Last of Us):
Joel's experience with fatherhood is probably the most tragic. The opening scenes of The Last of Us are absolutely Earth-shattering for any father, and watching Joel's transformation and character arc throughout the game is truly something to behold. For the sake of avoiding spoilers, this blurb will be short, but rest assured Joel is one the most well-crafted fathers and characters in all of gaming..
#6: JOHN MARSTON:
John is presented with numerous opportunities to cheat on his wife, but Marston stays loyal to his family. In fact, his entire quest is so that he may return to a quiet life on the homestead to be with his wife, as well as raise his son. The father/son relationship between John and his son is an integral element to the plot of Red Dead Redemption, as well as Marston's personal character..
#7: CHUCK GREENE:
How many of us are willing to kill zombies, humans, just about ANYTHING, just to get madami medicine for our daughter (and maybe free our name if their's time)..
#8: DANIEL HILLARD (Mrs Doubtfire):
How far would you go to see your estranged kids more? Would you, say, dress up as a matronly British nanny and risk setting your prosthetic breasts on apoy just so you could keep a closer eye on them?
#9: BRYAN MILLS:
Someone kidnaps your daughter.. EVERYONE FUCKIN DIES!!
He's WAY to protective.. But if Nemo was your ONLY surviving family matter from barakuda attack . Wouldn't you be?
