Get ready because we’re entering the realm of degeneracy as we go on a hunt for Daddy characters in anime. In case there are some lingering doubts in your heart as to what the word daddy means, go look up Speedwagon from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventures or a quick search on Google is another option to find out the connotations of the word ‘daddy’.
Now that we’re all on the same page, let’s start listing the Top 10 Daddy characters in anime. For business purposes, this article will remain safe for work.
Top 10 Daddy Characters in Anime
To avoid listing all Jujutsu Kaisen characters or One Piece characters, this list will mention only one character from an anime title. Without further ado, let’s get ready (or get on our knees) for the top 10 daddy characters in anime.
10. Shigure Soma – Fruits Basket
We’re only discussing Shigure because he’s fictional, remember to always stay away from men like him. Now that you’ve all been warned, let’s discuss Shigure. From day 1 Shigure emitted evil vibes which he downplayed with jokes. On the surface level, he was an evil mastermind and weirdly twisted, but beyond that, he was just jealous and brutally in love with a woman.
Additionally, he was extremely hot and attractive in an intriguing way. His manipulative ways were also attractive somehow, and his clothing choices just made it harder to deny his appeal.
9. Shoei Barou – Blue Lock
A few years older Barou would fit the mold of the perfect daddy. Throughout the series, Barou has stood firm and honest in his character traits. But not stubbornly or annoyingly, he gives a chance to new things (as he did recently in the manga) but the moment he realizes that it doesn’t benefit his journey towards his goal, he quickly gets back to his initial ways.
His strong personality which makes him a king is also what makes him a true daddy. He holds the potential to boss you around and never back down. Despite his over-the-top chaotic energy on the field, he’s someone who loves to clean and stay organized which gives him a thousand extra points.
8. Jotaro Kujo – JoJo’s Bizarre Adventures
Get ready to swoon over the poster boy of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventures. The fact that Jotaro is badass and cool is well known but he’s also kind beyond all of that. He shoos away females and is a bit rude to them but he is also tall and buff. We can’t just not mention that he’s academically smart as well.
Everybody who doesn’t get why Jotaro is here should be ora-ora-ed with all the reasons. If we count Star Platinum and The World as well with Jotaro… No we should not as the world is not yet ready for the heavenly combination.
7. Charlotte Katakuri – One Piece
If anybody had any doubts regarding Katakuri being a daddy, they were cleared the moment he ate donuts. He didn’t deserve to be bullied for his love for donuts and his mouth. As if his tall appearance with the gorgeous drip wasn’t enough, he had to be kind and helpful to make matters worse(for our hearts).
His care which is reflected in his protective nature towards his younger siblings is beyond endearing.What an adorable soul (and potentially dominating as well)!
6. Osamu Dazai – Bungou Stray Dogs
The mysterious air, the voice acting, and the complex details in his character are the primary reasons why Dazai is the best daddy. He’s annoying but endearing. If there’s something he lacks, his physical appearance will probably make up for it. Besides that, he’s also a well-written character who defines tragedy and the gray area.
The more you get to know him, the harder it becomes to not get attached to him. Despite being dorky, he can boss around and never runs out of cha-rizz-ma.
5. Sosuke Aizen – Bleach
As they say, the crazier the better. It’s baffling how the seemingly good Aizen as well as the actual Aizen are equally appealing. While he’s twisted and the god complex are clear signs to ensure that you stay away from him, how do you do that with “The Sosuke Aizen”?
Its not possible for a man to be as cunning, delusional, problematic, and as hot as Aizen to pass the daddy check in one go. He probably planned to be one all along.
4. Hatake Kakashi – Naruto
Masashi Kishimoto is a good man for covering Kakashi’s face with the mask as a maskless Kakashi is the equivalent of death. To be fair though, the masked Kakashi is no less. The sadness that tags along from his past is always visible in his kind smiles. His growth from a stubborn teen to a responsible grown man is nothing short of impressive.
Always moving forward, despite all the losses and the setbacks, Kakashi gave direction to the Young Team 7 as well. Besides being a great man, he also took off his mask in a filler episode which brings us back to square one, unmasked Kakashi is the death of us.
3. Uzui Tengen – Demon Slayer
Raise your hand if you wished to be one of Tengen’s wives when he was first introduced. During his introduction in the entertainment district arc, his disregard for everything made him look like a shallow character although a handsome and fun shallow character. From the disregard to the care and desperation to save everyone including his underlings and his wives, Uzui Tengen redefined himself beyond being the most delicious eye candy.
In a few episodes only, he completed a character arc displaying a variety of emotions and playing the roles of a great husband and a reliable hashira. If Uzui Tengen doesn’t define daddy then Demon Slayer isn’t popular either and the Sun rises from the west every day.
2. Erwin Smith – Attack on Titan
Are you done screaming after reading Erwin’s name? If yes, then let’s list out everything that makes him as good as he is or was (starts ugly crying). First of all, defeating the short king and the perfect captain Levi, to make it to this list is a huge feat. Standing tall and strong while everyone loses their mind, bearing the weight of sins and responsibilities while still finding some space for your wishes, Erwin has done it all.
Coming back to his appearance after all of that is a little disrespectful, but it’s Erwin so he’d probably see through our good intentions and let it pass. So when we consider the appearance, he has beautiful eyes with a clean look which is amplified by his dignified stature. Did all of that sound very daddy to you?
1. Nanami Kento – Jujutsu Kaisen
Nanami wraps his tie around his hand, rolls up his sleeves, and ends up becoming the daddiest of all daddy characters. We need to instate some limits here or Nanami will kill us all with how gorgeous he is. Besides the sunken cheeks and the beautiful golden tie with a leopard print, he’s a quiet gentleman. He also balances out Gojo’s crazy and quirky. His hatred for overtime brings out the best in him during work hours and his sense of responsibility always manages to shine through.
The only reason he doesn’t have more screen time is because it’s dangerous for our hearts. After all, for how long can a person scream, cry, and jump around while admiring a fictional character?
With that, the swooning and simping come to a halt. As the list comes to an end, let’s get back to a world devoid of fictional men which is a meaningless one.
