He is the father of Girlfriend and the husband of Mommy Mearest. He is an ex-rockstar and he does not approve Boyfriend's relationship with Girlfriend and he tries to kill him multiple times.

Standard Tactics: Daddy Dearest sings or resorts to sealing.

Weaknesses: If Daddy Dearest is beaten in a rap battle, he will have his bones shattered. However, this is only a weakness in-verse as this is a specific ability all users share.

Note: The reason characters in Friday Night Funkin' share the same abilities from singing is because rap battles are the main method of battle in Friday Night Funkin' and they have been shown to be deadly as Boyfriend breaks his bones through losing these battles and requires Girlfriend to rewind time so he can try again after his skeleton cracks and he dies. (The NSFW part specifically is a joke, Girlfriend revives him by setting the battle to the beginning just by sitting down on the speakers and can even do it while Boyfriend holds her as shown here) The official page directly states that characters such as Daddy Dearest are trying to kill him and not to die in the instructions with the only way of dying being to lose a rap battle. Daddy Dearest also hired Pico as a bounty hunter to kill Boyfriend and there are implications of even more going on during rap battles in canon. Characters that very clearly want to kill/possess Boyfriend and Girlfriend on the spot such as Monster and Spirit lead with starting a rap battle and singing. Boyfriend survives all of these situations unharmed by winning the rap battles. Tankman even implies that boyfriend was killed by losing the rap battle itself and not to mention every character has a death icon when they are pushed all the way to the end of the bar that shows who is winning the rap battle. That same bar is also directly called a health bar by Phantom Arcade.
