Top Ten Worst Anime Parents


The Top Ten

1 Shou Tucker - Fullmetal Alchemist and Brotherhood Shou Tucker - Fullmetal Alchemist and Brotherhood

Well, Anime America explained it well and I'm certain everyone who's commented on this explained their points great. This man is absolutely selfish and cruel. He will abuse and use his child for his own silly research and he basically done the same to his wife! And his form... I ran out a room screaming! Over all not only was he an awful parent but an awful person. He is selfish and will use anything and anyone to get his own way even if it involves his family.

It was pretty obvious who number one would be. And I haven't even watched Fullmetal Alchemist yet. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Using/abusing your own kid in such a way. Totally heartless. I despise this monster. - NerdBunny

Who would turn their own child into a beast by fusing them with a dog? only shou tucker, he is the only one to do such a terrible thing. how could he?

2 Sasuke Uchiha - Naruto Sasuke Uchiha - Naruto Sasuke Uchiha is a fictional character from the manga and anime franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

The first thing he did when he saw his daughter after many years was attempting to kill her, LOL He didn't even recognise his own child. But he had reasons to do so though, since he's been away from home for quite a long time, furthermore he had to leave like that in order to protect his family and the village. He always tried his best to find time to be with his family, so overall I think he's a good father to Sarada. - Goku02

Left his wife pregnant all alone XP then when he sees her pulls a sword on her, never shows any love towards her mother, making her hate him, and then he leaves again perfect father, seeing his daughter after 12 years, and instead of spending time with his family he spends more time with naruto and his son XP - karolinami132

I see a random girl let's kill her-- oh wait, she's my daughter... - Silverfroststorm

Sasgay and Suckura are the 2 worst parents ever and the worst married couple ever.

3 Gendo Ikari - Neon Genesis Evangelion Gendo Ikari - Neon Genesis Evangelion Gendo Ikari is a fictional character in the Neon Genesis Evangelion franchise. He is the commander of NERV. V 1 Comment
4 Medusa Gorgon - Soul Eater Medusa Gorgon - Soul Eater V 1 Comment
5 Charles Zi Britannia - Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion Charles Zi Britannia - Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion

I am ashamed to have been born on the same day he was. But then again, me and Obama were both born on the same day this horrible father was. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

6 Momiji's Mother - Fruits Basket Momiji's Mother - Fruits Basket

How do you refuse to hold your own child? She sickens me.

7 Satan - Blue Exorcist Satan - Blue Exorcist

He's the Devil. What did you expect?

Well he is Satan...

8 Delia Ketchum - Pokemon Delia Ketchum - Pokemon

I'm sorry, but who the actual hell allows their child to run around a world full of potentially dangerous Pokemon? I mean, shouldn't you be worried? Out there looking for him? Calling him every once in a while? I bet she doesn't even know that Ash nearly got turned into stone, got electrocuted hundreds of times, gets whipped with Vine Whip, and meeting legendary Pokemon.

People slag off a toddlers show about a 6 year old who travels with a monkey. But Pokemon is about a child yes older he is 10 but is still a child.

She is garbage!

9 Sakura Haruno - Naruto Sakura Haruno - Naruto Sakura Haruno is a fictional character in the Naruto manga and anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto.

I am not a Sakura fan. Not at all. But let's give her credit. She raised a daughter on her own and Sarada turned out pretty well. Being a single mom is hard work! And she clearly loves her daughter. I have many reasons for not liking her, but this one is unfair. - lalonde_marilou

She broke a house just be mad at her daughter's saying and terrified her to cry.

She is better then sasuke

10 Ragyo - Kill la Kill

This woman gave birth to countless children not to care for them but to use them as weapons. Almost all of them died because of her experiments.

Not the worst, but definitely needs a mention.

She should be number 1! - Tia-Harribel

Sorry for not adding her. I haven't seen Kill La Kill yet. From what I know now, though, she is a monster. - Elric-san

Those scenes where she was placing her hands on Satsuki where a shouldn't were so uncomfortable.😖

The Contenders

11 Ren Sohma - Fruits Basket Ren Sohma - Fruits Basket

She is so jealous of her own child that she forces her to pretend to be a boy and repeatedly psychologicaly mistreats her for years which drives Akito crazy. Akito then repeats the cycle of abuse with others in her clan. This lady should have been locked up when she threatened to kill her kid if she didn't act like a boy. The leader, her husband, should've been all "Sure anything you say honey" to Ren's face then once she gave birth locked this psycho up. I don't care how much you love someone when they threaten your kid that's when the gloves come off. - NerdBunny

12 Kaguya Otsutsuki - Naruto Kaguya Otsutsuki - Naruto Princess Kaguya Ōtsutsuki (大筒木カグヤ, Ōtsutsuki Kaguya) is the matriarch of the Ōtsutsuki clan and mother of Hagoromo and Hamura Ōtsutsuki . Long before the founding of the hidden villages, during an era of endless war, Kaguya consumed the fruit of the God Tree and became the first wielder more.

She tried to kill her sons when they were only INFANTS by absorbing their chakra (life force). Very cruel of her! - Tia-Harribel

13 Irene Belserion - Fairy Tail Irene Belserion - Fairy Tail

After being tortured by her husband for three years straight, she surpressed her pregnancy and tried her best to protect Erza from harm. On the day of her execution, she turns into a dragon and escapes. She later meets Zeref who gives her back her human form, however, she lacks the qualities of being a human (lack of tasting food and lack of sleep). She drives herself into insanity, and wishes to be reborn as a human, so she tries to enchant herself into Erza to become human again. Her enchantment fails, and shortly after giving birth to Erza, Irene abandons her in a village, where she is later captured and turned into a child slave at the Tower of Heaven.

Irene was already insane, and she was fully aware of that. I get that she was trying to "protect Erza", but dumping her in the middle of a town and killing herself was not the smartest choice. Hell, she didn't even bother dropping her off to someone who could take care of her. Erza had to learn to take care of herself at such a young age, not to mention her crappy past building up to the way she is now. She was able to change by joining Fairy Tail, and the guild took better care of Erza than Irene ever did.

She also calls Erza trash, broke almost all of her bones with a single blow, tried to stab her with her own sword, and tried to drop a meteor on her.

I think Irene is a brilliant mother. She endured all those sufferings in centuries trying to protect her child. Anyone gone through a past like hers would go insane. SPOILER: She killed herself to protect her daughter as well. - Goku02

14 Kyo's Father - Fruits Basket
15 Jiemma - Fairy Tail Jiemma - Fairy Tail

Terrible father. He treated his own daughter and guild members like garbage. So glad Sting and Rogue finally kicked his ass.

While he is by far the best Fairy Tail character, he is still a pretty bad parent. At least he tried to make his daughter stronger thanks to his horrible parenting. - SelfDestruct

Jiemma always abuses his daughter and guild members, and you still think that he's the best Fairy Tail character? - Goku02

16 Mr. Ishtar - Yu Gi Oh

He is a terrible father. Who locks their children away and keeps them away from the outside world...only a insane and terrible parent would

17 Asuka's Mother - Neon Genesis Evangelion Asuka's Mother - Neon Genesis Evangelion

She caused such a young child so much trauma. - Pinkarray

IRYO on her since she's better than Asuka.

18 Marianne vi Britannia - Code Geass
19 Vinsmoke Judge - One Piece

Urgh... How did this guyhad a son like Sanji is beyond me.

One of the worst father I've ever seen in anime. Let's see... he experimented on his kids to make them lose their emotions/humanity. He insulted and discarded his son for being a "simple human" and thus a failure, berated him for showing compassion, let him get beat up by his other children. He faked his son's death and had him put in a cell with an iron mask for months inorder to forget his existence. Then when the child finally escaped he told him he will be happy if he dies and that he is ashamed of him. And to top it all, years later when said son made a name for himself, he after chased him and blackmailed him with his surrogate father's life so he could use him like a pawn. Worst. father. ever. - lalonde_marilou

20 Gyokuen Ren - Magi

She should at least get a higher spot since she didn't care about killing all of her kids if she could, she already killed 2 of them, her husband and poisoned her second husband so she could be the next emporer of the Kou Empire, not to mention she wants to end the world...

She deserves a spot on here definitely. Just to be aware she was possessed by Arba after giving birth to Hakuyu and Hakuren; so even if she is possessed she birthed Hakuei and Hakuryuu.

So; she is the wife of the first emporer and second emporer of the Kou Ren Empire, birthed four children (three sons and one daughter) despite having four children Hakuryuu is the most affected by her. At the age of six he was caught in a massive fire with his two older brothers Hakuyu and Hakuren that was set up by enemies revolting against his father (the first emporer) unfortunately his father and two older brothers died, but not before Hakuyu revealed it was their own mother that caused all this to happen.

Hakuryuu survived but had to live with the fact that his mother tried to kill him. Any happy moments or any kindness she showed towards Hakuryuu was more or less faked, since she helped end Alama Torran when Arba was still alive and didn't have to posses a person; she wouldn't care ...more
