Top 5 Wednesday #40: Happy Father’s Day!


Welcome to another top 5 wednesday! Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely Samantha and Lainey! You can check the group here for more discussions and topic.

International mother and father’s day are always celebrated in different dates with the ones in my country. Instead of third sunday of June, in Indonesia we celebrate it at November 12. In honor of the upcoming father’s day, this week t5w theme is best fathers *list, which is often overlooked in favor of fictional mothers. Let’s get started!

*I’m excluding Arthur Weasley and James Potter from this list because it’s just too obvious. Peace out.

Henry McCord (Madam Secretary)

When your wife is the secretary of state, she’s bound to be super busy and spend more of her time dealing with world crisis instead of home crisis. As the result, the job of handling 3 teenagers that is your kid will fall to the dad. And Henry McCord handles it with grace. Not only he managed to do it flawlessly, he do it fairly and never use it against Elizabeth. What a dad.

Triton (The Little Mermaid)

He’s harsh and strict, yes, but what parents aren’t doing that for their child when they are concerned with their safety? Especially if the things they are doing could lead to their death. They love each other but they also have their own fights and differences, which makes them my favorite father/daughter relationship in Disney… except for Mulan.

Hades (Percy Jackson Series)

wrong hades but i love this gif

Book-wise, Hades is the best father out of the whole olympians, yes poseidon, you included. He did not break his pact, yet Zeus still going after his kids and killed their mother. Hades kept Nico and Bianca protected for years, even sent a guardian for them. He helps Nico and Hazel, even taught them some of his powers. He’s definitely one of the best olympian parents there.

Hanz Huberman (The Book Thief)

He may not be Liesel’s biological dad, but he’s an amazing father figure for her. He taught her how to read, introduce her to books, and taught her about kindness. More than that, he taught Liesel about love, compassion, and standing up for your own principles.

Sheriff Stilinski

His son is running with an alpha wolf, banshee, hunter, kitsune, hellhound, and God knows what else. Stiles even been possessed and hurt many times. But despite that, Sheriff always have his back and tried his best to took care of Stiles. He’s just a human, trying to keep up with supernatural beings to protect his son and he tried his best in doing so.

  1. Ohhh lovely list, I really like Triton as well 🙂 Off the top of my head right now, I can remember the dad in The Way You Make Me Feel being pretty awesome and I loved the father/daughter relationship in that one 🙂


  2. I like this topic! I do often see more lists about fictional mothers, but, upon reflection, I think I can actually think of more bookish fathers! And I love your picks! The thing is, Triton is completely right, and I’m not sure that’s really acknowledged in the movie. We mainly see him through Ariel’s teenager eyes, as overly protective and stuffy. But he’s right!


  3. I like Triton too!! Some of my favourite TV/Movie fathers are the 3 fathers/father figures in Full House, and Daniel Hillard from Mrs. Doubtfire. Some of my favourite book fathers are Atticus Finch from To Kill a Mockingbird, and Lara Jean’s father in To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before 😊


  4. Father’s Day in Australia is in September! I always find it strange that we all have different dates for the same thing, haha.

    Off the top of my head I can’t really think of any great fathers. Though I definitely agree with you about Hanz! He’s so awesome, and I love how he took care of Liesel and Max. Now I want to watch that movie again! Though I will probably end up sobbing uncontrollably like last time, oops.

    OH! MY favourite dad for sure is Keith Mars from Veronica Mars!! I absolutely love the relationship that he and Veronica have. He always puts her first, and even when she’s knee deep in trouble she can always rely on him. ❤


  5. Thinking about it, Triton is actually a really great example. Great choice!
    I am still to read the Book Thief but knowing there’s an excellent father figure in it makes me want to read it even more now. 🙂
