Why not? He's fair in his diciplinary actions, and he teaches his kids the values of life. He is flawed do to how outdated he is, but so was my dad. Hank hill kinda reminds me of my father a bit, but without the southern accent.

His kids never take anything he says to seriously because of how old fashioned he is. I think that's really his main problem.

Wow, seriously? If anything he's the worst father ever, even worse than Kratos.


Now, this is a truly difficult question here, there doesn't seem to be a perfect father person in fiction.

Maybe Splinter? No actually he's also pretty terrible.

Maybe Shredder from the 2002 TMNT show?

he is so closed minded....and kind of bigoted(though we all are to a certain degree).

He killed his son's mentor, had his son's only known family murdered, tried to turn his son towards evil, slaughtered innocent children, kidnapped/imprisoned/tortured his own daughter, stood by idly as his daughter's home planet and people were annihilated, all on top of many actions of murderous villainy and wickedness. His only redeeming actions (saving his son from Palpatine) came much later after years and years of tyrannical evilness. He is far from being the best father. [-(

My friend's reason for Mufasa being the best were:
1. He raises Simba on the righteous path to kinghood, mentoring him at a young age.
2. He bravely saves Simba twice from being killed, risking his own life both times (even losing his life during the second rescue).
3. He returns after his death to set Simba back on the right path to save their home and loved ones.
4. After Simba got into trouble with the hyenas, Mufasa's berating him was more of that a caring, concerned father than a harsh, scolding father, and his talk with Simba led to the two of them becoming even closer as father and son. How many fathers do you know who berate their sons and ultimately grow closer to them because of that? ;)

what ABOUT spike? He was just like HIS father, a cookie cutter personality. I mean, come on. He left his son, with the autobots, while he flew off into space with bumblebee. And later on in the series, he brings him along on missions with him and the autobots. I liked the whole "Saving him by turning him into a headmaster" bit, but really, thats all I can remember about him, and if I recal, even that was his fault for having his son along in the first place. If your goint to adventure off into spca, leave the kid with mom.

Vegeta's a better father than Spike.
