He’s such a dick to be point where it’s not even funny, but that meme with the neighbor is pretty great - CostcoHotDogs

8 Mrs. Turner - The Fairly Oddparents Mrs. Turner - The Fairly Oddparents

Like Timmy's father completely oblivious and blind to the fact that Vicky is a horrible person. - BoredJeff02

9 Eustace - Courage the Cowardly Dog Eustace - Courage the Cowardly Dog Eustace Bagge is a fictional character from the Cartoon Network animated series, Courage the Cowardly Dog.

He's technically more of a pet owner rather than a parent. Doesn't mean he's not an abusive one at that. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

He torments Courage so much that it makes you feel bad for the poor dog. - BoredJeff02

Not really a parent - Gangem

Technically he's kind of like a foster parent so he still counts... - BoredJeff02

10 Ozai - Avatar the Last Airbender Ozai - Avatar the Last Airbender Fire Lord Ozai is the main antagonist of Avatar: The Last Airbender. He is the supreme antagonist of the series due to being in control of the Fire Nation and being the father of Zuko and Azula. He is also Aang's arch-nemesis.

He should be higher most of the parents are tormenting but Ozai tried to kill Zuko

He even tried to KILL his own son.. - BoredJeff02

The Contenders

11 The High Priestess - Samurai Jack The High Priestess - Samurai Jack

I'd say if Ozai from Avatar: The Last Airbender were to take the title of King of Bad Parents, then I'd say the High Priestess from Samurai Jack deserves the title of Queen of Bad Parents. While some of these parents on this list have actually at least shown ONE moment of either love or remorse at one point, The High Priestess is probably one of, if not, arguably the only mother on this list to have never shown any love for Ashi and her sisters. There was literally only one scene where she affectionately referred to Ashi as "my sweet Ashi", but even so, it wasn't a genuine moment of parental love since it was followed by a relentless beating from one of the female cultists. Simply put, The High Priestess is a being devoid of any compassion or love for her daughters and could care less about her offspring and more about her devotion to Aku. Not to mention she even tried to kill Ashi and at one point tried to manipulate her emotionally by reminding her of her sisters' deaths. ...more - ModernSpongeBobSucks
