John McClane, Die Hard
John McClane (Bruce Willis) is certainly one of the most iconic action heroes of all time, but most forget that he’s also a dad! When we arrive at the fourth entry to the Die Hard series, Live Free or Die Hard, McClane’s daughter, Lucy, gets taken hostage, and John is not going to back down until she’s safe.

Don Vito Corleone, The Godfather
Who could be a bigger butt-kicking father than the Godfather (Marlon Brando) himself?! He won’t just kick ass in the name of his children, he’ll have you “taken care of” without breaking a sweat.

Surely his last-minute conversaion and deathbed proclamations to his son Luke count in the hearts of the good.
