Top Ten Worst Anime Parents


The Top Ten

1 Shou Tucker - Fullmetal Alchemist and Brotherhood Shou Tucker - Fullmetal Alchemist and Brotherhood Shou Tucker is a fictional character from the Fullmetal Alchemist manga series and its adaptations created by Hiromu Arakawa.

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

I'm just happy he's at no. 1.. this guy deserves this spot for eternity. Poor Nina...

2 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.

he sucks

3 Medusa Gorgon - Soul Eater Medusa Gorgon - Soul Eater

She's like an uber Shou Tucker. No remorse. Bitch even gloats about it.

4 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

5 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

But he too much better then Naruto that's my opninon,poor Sasuke Uchiha is a Evil,Demon and Satan in Naruto and Naruto Shippuden and other side Naruto Uzumaki is too good,great hero and great father too then Sasuke,Why Scumbag Kishimoto did with this great character Sasuke,I know Sasuke is too innocent in childhood age then Evil and Satan Naruto and love too much with elder brother Itachi Uchiha!
My means is Sasuke Uchiha is Chinese not Japanese character in Satanic Naruto anime he is by name Japanese just in anime not real and Naruto Uzumaki is orinally chutiya American or Jew? He is not a anyway of japanese by name just disgusting! This Satanic,Illuminati 666,Demon,Evil and Devil anime Naruto is just a mind programming,mind controlling and child and elder's brain washing drama not a real please! Leave Naruto! It's too good for you guys and thanks by Rida Waheed JAFFAR Mughal!

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 Vinsmoke Judge - One Piece Vinsmoke Judge - One Piece

One of the worst father I ever seen. Let's see… He experimented on his unborn kids in order to make them lose their emotions wanting them to become unfeeling killing machines despite his wife's wishes. He called his son a failure for being born human and rejected him for being weak. He let the other children bully him relentlessly. He faked his son's death, put him in prison in an iron mask to forget his existence. When his son escaped the cell he asked him to never reveal he was his father because he was too ashamed of him and told him he hoped he would die out there. Then when that same son finally made a name for himself later in life, he went after him in order to use him like a pawn, blackmailing him with his adoptive father's life. Worst. Father. Ever.

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

He is the worst

9 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.

What...what has Delia done to deserve this? Where the heck is Kaiba's dad? He should be here!

She is garbage!

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.

She actively molests her own children... that alone makes her a top contender

Not the worst, but definitely needs a mention.

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

The Contenders

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

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

She is better then sasuke

12 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

13 Kyo's Father - Fruits Basket

Fruits Basket, the show of parents who can't accept the fact that their children can transform into zodiac animals. I don't think I need to demonstrate any further...

At first I thought of Saisyu because, he is Kyo Kusanagi's father

14 Kaguya Otsutsuki - Naruto Kaguya Otsutsuki - Naruto Kaguya Otsutsuki is a fictional character from the manga and anime franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

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

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

Hmmm a father who locks his children away from the outside world because it’s “for their own good.” Mr. Ishtar reminds me of Judge Claude Frollo. - MJfan119

17 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

18 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.

19 Marianne vi Britannia - Code Geass
20 Todoroki Enji - Boku no Hero Academia

I'm SO glad someone was smart enough to add Endeavor to this list. Not only is he far from what a hero should be by only seeking pride and glory and not to help society, but the things he's done to his own family are nothing short of atrocious. Manipulating his own offspring including Shouto just to raise them as his successor to surpass All Might to mentally breaking his own wife that he saw nothing more than as a tool, Endeavor is more of a villain than a hero, if not, an abusive parent to any extent. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

He abused his own child, and drove his wife insane. That sounds like a pretty bad parent to me

He is trash

21 Jude Heartfilia - Fairy Tail

He was terrible for neglecting Lucy, but at least he had enough sense to change by sending her 7 years worth of rent money.

He had a change of heart though. - Goku02

22 Raven Branwen - RWBY
23 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 killed her two sons,husband,and tried to put the whole world in danger. Not to mention she threatened to kill Hakuie. And burned down a empire with her family in it. And still has one son and treats him like a real mother even though he knows everything that she has done.

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

24 King Andragoras III - Arslan Senki

This a-hole treats Arslan, his own son, like trash! His wife, Tahamine, isn't any better.

He barely gives a damn for Arslan. Poor child,he barely received any affection from his parents... - Tia-Harribel

25 Akemi Hinazuki - Erased

The most worst mother I've ever seen in episodes, like really!? Beating her own daugether and washes her face water but cold thinks that make help? Pfft... yeah hell right! I thought that Nagisa's mom from AS was more worst like she always want to her poor son to be a girl wich it made me really mad. But when I saw that Kayo was had a horrible childhood I kinda feld sorry fo her not only that she was abused by that bitch-ass mom but also bullied with that stupid girl who she had very annoying smirks! All I do blame Mrs. Hinazuki cause she was a dump stupid bitch for her very violance that she caused her child in the pain yet she always barking Satoru back wich was really annoying and I am so happy that Kayo will never see this scheme ever again so thanks not only Satoru but also his mother Mrs. Fujinima.

26 Nagisa Shiota's Mother - Assassination Classroom
27 Genma Saotome - Ranma 1/2 Genma Saotome - Ranma 1/2

Terrible father

28 Gozaburo Kaiba - Yu Gi Oh

He's a cruddy father. Poor Seto, Mokuba, and Noah. Enough said.

He’s an evil... creature.

29 Mayu's Stepfather - Elfen Lied

PEDOPHILE! Also her mother was terrible too! What does she do when Mayu finally plucks up the courage to tell her that she's being molested? SHE SLAPS HER, DOESN'T DEFEND HER AND STAYS MARRIED TO THE CREEP! A clear case of somebody caring more about their status of being married and in a relationship, then their own child!

30 Berthold Hawkeye - Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood
31 Shoto’s Parents - My Hero Academia
32 Tsukasa's real life father -.hack//SIGN
33 Greg - A Cruel God Reigns
34 Gambino - Berserk

Three. Silver. Coins.

35 Misae Nohara - Crayon Shin-Chan
36 General Cross - D. Gray-Man
37 Hayate's Parents - Hayate the Combat Butler

The worst type of parents what type of parents make their son do all the work cause they are so lazy to do work and take all of his money and give them debt of 156,804,000 yen for a christmas present

38 George Joestar - Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Steel Ball Run

Yeah sure he might not be the worst but he clearly favoured his first son (Nicholas), didn't go to any of his second's son's(Johnny horse races after his first son dies even after ten years and disowns Johnny for trying to use Nicholas's riding boots and says tells Johnny that "God took the wrong son"

39 Enji Todoroki
40 Jotaro Kujo - JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Jotaro Kujo - JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Jotaro Kujo is a fictional character from the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure manga series created by Hirohiko Araki and is the delinquent protagonist of Stardust Crusaders .

He may be my favorite Jojo but he is still a horrible dad to jolyne - samanime

Samanime pretty much summed it up.

41 Tahamine - Arslan Senki
42 Johannes Von Schicksal - God Eater Johannes Von Schicksal - God Eater
43 Ivan Dreyar - Fairy Tail Ivan Dreyar - Fairy Tail
44 Naruto Uzumaki - Boruto: Naruto the Movie Naruto Uzumaki - Boruto: Naruto the Movie Naruto Uzumaki is a fictional character in the anime and manga franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

I don't think that he's a bad father. He cares for his children a lot but is too busy to spend time with them like other parents do. - Goku02

Worst patent in Boruto he doesn't try to spend time with his children and only cares about his job

Sasuke is far worse - gingin_27

45 Grandfather Hanabishi - Ai Yori Aoshi
46 Dr. Tenma - Astro Boy
47 Mayuri Kurotsuchi - Bleach Mayuri Kurotsuchi - Bleach
