[[quoteright:350:[[WesternAnimation/AmericanDad http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/image_9473.jpeg]]]]

%%* ''WesternAnimation/TheMummyTheAnimatedSeries'': Rick O'Connell.
%%* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'': Commissioner Gordon is this to Barbara.
%%* ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretSaturdays'': Solomon "Doc" Saturday is both this and PapaWolf.
%%* WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck.
* Both TheHero Goliath ''and'' AntiVillain David Xanatos of ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' have gone to great extents to protect [[ActionGirl Angela]] or [[HalfHumanHybrids Alexander]], respectively. And in Goliath's case, he's also PapaWolf to the Gargoyles he's TeamDad to.
** Halcyon Renard and his daughter [[DatingWhatDaddyHates don't have]] [[WhereDidWeGoWrong the best relationship]]. Halcyon Renard is [[BadassGrandpa quite old]] and [[HandicappedBadass paralyzed from the waist down]]. None of this stopped Halcyon Renard from flying a gigantic airship with an army of robots to save her from losing her new baby to a [[PhysicalGod nigh-unstoppable]] [[TheFairFolk super-fairy]] (ItMakesSenseInContext).
** The Emir probably also counts. He used magic to [[DeathTakesAHoliday force Death into taking a holiday]], all in an attempt to resurrect his young son.
** And when Elisa was shot in her apartment (accidentally by Broadway), Goliath tore through the city to get the gangster he believed did this. When he did find the gangster Tony Dracon, he was willing to kill the guy right then and there for what he (supposedly) did to Elisa.
* Jake's grandfather in ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDragonJakeLong''.
** Jake's dad OTOH, despite being an ordinary human, gets a couple good moments. He manages to save his son from some kind of winged, moose thing during a camping trip, and later saves him again from a bunch of ''vampires''.
* ComicBook/{{Aquaman}} in the ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' TV series [[LifeOrLimbDecision chopped off]] ''[[LifeOrLimbDecision his own hand]]'' [[LifeOrLimbDecision to save his infant child's life and get out of a]] DeathTrap. And then he returned home with the baby tucked under his good arm, had his people put a hook on his stump, came back to action and [[HandicappedBadass helped the Justice League kick the culprit's ass]]. Conclusion? Do NOT mess with Aquaman's kid. You'll be '''VERY''', '''''VERY SORRY'''''.
** To drive that point even further, the villain was ''[[CainAndAbel his own brother]]'', [[EvilUncle Orm]]. And Aquaman didn't give a single thought about kicking his ass and [[spoiler:letting him die]].
* ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'': Ever seen a BumblingDad battle and win against a 50-foot-[[OurGhostsAreDifferent ghost monster]]? Congratulations, you have been pwned by Jack Fenton.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'', even an BumblingDad that's OneOfTheKids like Mr. Turner is capable of fighting with teeth and paws [[PapaWolf to defend Timmy]]. Just watch the episode where Timmy wishes he could merge with dad's CoolCar, then Vicky steals the car and he believes Timmy is stuck in it...
* ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'': The local [[BullyBulldog neighborhood bulldog]] Spike.
* Even Peter Griffin on ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' is capable of this now and then (even if the rest of the time he is an outright AbusiveParent).
* ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' also does this. "Surro-Gate" is a good example, as it shows a CampGay who previously solved fights with dance moves out of ''Theatre/WestSideStory'' punching out Stan in one hit after he kidnaps the guy's daughter.
-->'''Stan:''' That's not campy. That's not campy at all.
** Stan despite his {{Jerkass}} tendencies certainly has traits of this with his children as well, like what he did to ''his own boss'' for insulting Hayley.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'' ... In "A Visit To Anthony," Ren and Stimpy are severely intimidated by Anthony's father. And they have every reason to be. He's very large, heavily muscled, despite his age, and unlike most of the "lummoxes" seen in the show, he is not only healthy-looking, but reasonably intelligent. Just getting a threatening speech from him puts the fear of god into you. His silent rage is even more frightening when coupled with his weeping when he thinks his son is in danger, even if it's just of being disappointed.
* ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGalaxyRangers'': Zachary Foxx is normally AFatherToHisMen or TeamDad. If you threaten his biological kids, or push him to the LetsGetDangerous point by hurting his Rangers, he can and will use you for target practice... with his ArmCannon.
* Race Bannon from ''WesternAnimation/JonnyQuestTheRealAdventures'' is this to his only daughter, Jessie.
* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'': Iroh was this back when he was a General and his son Lu Ten was alive.
** Given his [[ParentalSubstitute de facto adoption]] of his nephew Zuko, he probably still counts.
** Hakoda, Katara and Sokka's father.
** Fire Lord Ozai, even though he is ''not'' a good father.
** Tenzin in the SequelSeries ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' is definitely this (and Aang was one to him). As is Korra's father Tonraq. And his brother [[BigBad Unalaq]]. And Asami's father, Hiroshi Sato (though he's another evil version). Really, in this series any dad who isn't deceased or [[DisappearedDad absent]] will be this.
*** [[spoiler: Tenzin is so badass, he was able to easily fend off Zaheer, who has only been seen curb stomping opponents, and it takes the combined force of all 4 members of the Red Lotus to finally take him down.]]
* General Molotov on ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes'' is very much this. [[{{Satan}} Lucius]]...not so much.
* Ratchet from ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'' doesn't like to hear his friend Omega Supreme, who he mentored during the war, being threatened. Omega is a PersonOfMassDestruction built to ''end'' the Great War, so this doesn't happen often, but...
-->'''Ratchet''' (to the Autobot High Council): Omega Supreme is one of us. An Autobot. A [[TrueCompanions friend]]. Harm one circuit on him and you'll answer to ''me''.
** It should be mentioned for the un-initiated, that Ratchet is both an old man and a medic, with no offensively designed equipment. Yet you still don't doubt that he could very well hand them their asses on a plate if pressed.
* In the animated series ''WesternAnimation/{{Kissyfur}}'', Gus, Kissyfur's dad is this to his son as well as to the other children. Simply put, if you put them in danger, you'd better be prepared to be thrown halfway across the swamp. You would think that Floyd and Jolene, [[PunchClockVillain the two gators on the show]], [[TooDumbToLive would have learned their lesson]].
* Villainous (well, [[AntiVillain antivillainous]]) example from ''WesternAnimation/{{Wakfu}}'': Everything [[BigBad Nox]] does is out of fatherly love. [[LoveMakesYouEvil Even the genocide]].
* ''Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'': Master Splinter.
* Somewhat off-screen in ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'' and crossing with MamaBear is Oritel (Bloom's Dad). After both he and his wife think both their daughters to be dead, they according to one account went completly berserk at the ones responsible; the Ancestral Witches. Considering how high they are in among other's Faragonda's and Valtor's regard, that says something about the power which was unleashed. Ouch. When Oritel has returned by ''[[TheMovie Magical Adventure]]'', he is fiercely protective of Bloom, banishes Sky from Domino when he thinks Sky has dumped Bloom, and doesn't hesitate to fight the Trix and Ancestral Witches when they threaten Bloom.
%%* ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'': Papa Smurf.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' may be well able to protect himself thanks to the Omnitrix, but on one occasion, his father ended up attacking a [[BigBad High Breed]] with a {{BFG}} for threatening him. Considering how powerful the High Breed had been up to that point, doing that is pretty dang impressive. Ben's uncle Max has also shown traits of this.
** And Ben grows up into one in at least one timeline.
* Ant-Man II from ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' mainly uses his powers and abilities to ensure the safety and well-being of his young daughter. In the episode in which he officially becomes the new Ant-Man, he punishes Crossfire for kidnapping her by [[spoiler:kicking him in the face, then covering him in ants]].
* Inverted in ''WesternAnimation/GodzillaTheSeries'' where Godzilla Jr will go to crazy lengths to protect his adopted father Nick. But played straight with Nick. If you are human and you do something that harms Godzilla Jr, Nick will end you.
* Buck Tuddrussel in ''WesternAnimation/TimeSquad''. While known to be a complete {{Jerkass}} at the worst of times, and often lets Otto get hurt through blind negligence; Tuddrussel will kick some major ass if Otto is in mortal danger and the thought of losing him to someone else makes him just as pissed. Same goes for the campy robot partner Larry, which crosses into MamaBear territory.
* Hugh Test in ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyTest'' confronts a wrestler more than three times his size [[PapaWolf to ensure his kids' safety]].
* [[spoiler:Roy]] from ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice''.
* Pretty much Popeye in Popeye and Son. Hmm.... Proving that, see the DVD.
* [[WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory Dexter's Dad]] had a few turns in action.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheDeep'' has William Nekton.
