Best and Worst Fictional Dads #TopTenTuesday

This is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week, they post a new Top Ten list that one of their bloggers will answer. Everyone is welcome to join!

Today's list is:

Father's Day Related Freebie: 
My list will be Best/Worst Fictional Dads

The Best

Carlisle Cullen from the Twilight series
For setting a good example for his children, and encouraging them to feed on animals instead of humans!

The Father from The Road
He took care of son and did his best for his survival.

Charles Ingalls from Little House series
Is there anything that this man couldn't do? On top of taking care of the home, he loved his wife and girls more than anything!

Denzel Washington in John Q
His son needs a heart transplant, and the insurance company will only cover $20,000. He needs to come up with the $250,000 difference before he can be put on the donor list. Not only does John Q hold the entire ER hostage and order them to do the heart transplant, his plan is to kill himself and donate his heart to his son.

Daniel Hillard from Mrs. Doubtfire
Any man who goes through the trouble that Daniel did, even going so far to change himself into a woman each day, deserves an award! I love this movie!!

The Worst

Vernon Dursley from the Harry Potter series
He spoils his son, Dudley, to the degree that the son runs the household and the parents flutter around him doing everything he wants! He encourages Dudley's bullying towards Harry and, as a father figure to Harry, he was abominable.

John Winchester from Supernatural
As much as I loved his character, John was a terrible father! Dean essentially had to raise little Sammy himself, because his father was always off hunting. Dean had to become responsible and mature waaaaaay before his time.

Craster from Game of Thrones
This man is so vile. He has incest with his daughters so that they bear him more children. And if the child is a son? He leaves it out in the cold as a sacrifice for the White Walkers.

So, who makes your list for best/worst fictional dad? Please let me know in the comments, or leave me a link to your blog post if you are also participating in the meme!
