    You are not as half as scary as your dad.

    後面的as scary as your dad是as ... as...的一部分。所以在as...as中間加上了形容詞scary.

    as ... as的用法可參見<牛津英語用法指南>pp.99-101

    第一個as,只是一個副詞,用來修飾half,表示[程度相同]。如:Nylon is cheaper than leather, and it's just as strong.

    You are not half as clever as you think you are.

    I'm not gonig out with a man who's twice as old as me.

    I took three times as long as I had expected.

    三例句見牛津英語用法指南p.100

    如果你知道

    You are not half as scary as your dad是對的

    You are not as half scary as your dad也是對的

    那You are not as half as scary as your dad

    不過是加強語氣的說法而已

    as...as 可以再參考這裡
