Spoiler: My Dad Was Alive the Whole Time… AND I Have to Fight Him?!

Platform: NES

As ninja Ryu Hayabusa, your goal is seek revenge for the death of your father. Little do you know, you later find out your father is very much still alive and is possessed by an evil figure.

So even though you spend much of the game desiring to avenge his murder, he winds up sacrificing himself for you after you free him of the evil spirit, but not before another enemy tries to kill you. Best. Dad. Ever.
