8 Best (Fictional) Dads

In honor of Father’s day, here’s some of the best fictional dads out there. None can compete with MY dad, of course, but these eight try.

Justice and Writeousness

1. Logan- Logan

Initially reluctant to accept the ‘dad’ role, Logan finally allows himself to see Laura as his daughter.


2. Atticus Finch- To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

He may not play with his kids like the other dads in the neighborhood, but he’ll teach them to read and encourage them to think. Plus, he never looks down on kids for being young.


3. Ripred- Underland Chronicles by Suzanne Collins

You never thought he used to be a dad. But some of the best scenes in the series were with him and Lizzie.


4. Mr. Bennet- Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

He supports Elizabeth’s refusal to marry Mr Collins, and is always willing to talk with her.


5. Wilfred Mott- Doctor Who

So maybe he’s a grandpa, but whatever. Not only is he one of the Doctor’s best companions, but he clearly loves Donna and supports her, even when others won’t. He’s always willing to watch the stars with her.


6. Alfred Pennyworth- Batman

Even superheroes need a voice of reason in their lives. And would Batman listen to anyone but his butler and father-figure?


7. Pa Ingalls- The Little House Books by Laura Ingalls

He’ll fight a bear to get back to his family, even if the bear turns out to be a tree stump.


8. Jean Valjean- Les Miserables by Victor Hugo

He’s a convict, a mayor, and superhero-strong. What little girl could ask for a better daddy?

Who are some of your favorite fictional fathers?

  1. I just stumbled onto your blog and I already love it, thanks to this post. 🙂

    I think it’s great that you included a few guys that were father figures instead of biological relatives. Like Alfred (I love the BatBale movies!) and Valjean (love him, too). Great post. 🙂
