** The Zeppelis are sort of a secondary ass-kicking family, though they all have a bad habit of dying tragically.

** You've also got the FireForgedFriends: Barbara Gordon, the original ''Comicbook/{{Batgirl}}'' and hacker supreme Oracle; and Stephanie Brown, third Batgirl, who won't stop being a superhero. Not even if you ask, tell, torture, or otherwise encourage her otherwise. Even the dog, Ace, is a BadAss. That's not counting BadAss parents, children, servants and baby mommas like Huntress, Catwoman, Batwoman, Commissioner Gordon, Talia al Ghul, and [[BattleButler Alfred]]. Any one of whom could kick your ass so hard that it turns inside out. Oh, and Superman's always willing to babysit. Even though technically, only Batman, Robins, Cass, and Damian are related, crime fighting brings them all together as a family. Gotham wouldn't be the same without any of them.

** In terms of extended family, Kate Kane, the second ComicBook/{{Batwoman}}, is Bruce's first cousin and Damian's first cousin once removed.

* And what about Franchise/{{Superman}} himself? There's his cousin, Kara Zor-El (aka Supergirl), half-clone and adopted brother, Kon-El (Comicbook/{{Superboy}}) and adopted son, Chris Kent (who'd better get to grow up to be Superboy), and his friggin' DOG, Krypto. And if you want to count best friends and family of same, well... look above. And then ''run''.
** In the [[Comicbook/SupermanAndBatmanGenerations Generations]] series (as the name implies), Superman, Batman, and several other heroes have children with some intermarrying between the lines. Batman actually acquires immortality and superpowers and marries Superman's great granddaughter (who is centuries old by this point but, like him, ages very slowly after adulthood.)
** Chris actually becomes [[spoiler: Nightwing]].

Added DiffLines:

** The Charlotte Family is the single most powerful and influential family in the series. Its matriarch, Linlin, also known as Big Mom, is one of the Four Emperors, each of whom controls a large part of the New World region and are considered the strongest fighters among pirates. Whereas fellow Emperor Whitebeard inducts strong pirate crews and regards them as family, Big Mom inducts crews by marrying off one of her many children to one of the crew's members, making them ''literally'' family. Her children are no slouch either. For instance, Brulee is able to take on Luffy in a one-on-one fight, and Perospero is at least strong enough to bully [[MadScientist Caesar Clown]], a man who defeated Luffy twice. As for Moscato, skilled and respected warrior of the dangerous New World? [[spoiler:[[TheWorfEffect Big Mom kills him in one shot by accident]].]]

* From ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'': Captain Jacob Keyes is a total badass, and proves himself to be one of the best strategists and captains the UNSC has. His daughter Miranda is also a total badass and master strategist, but has some trouble [[WellDoneSonGuy living up to her father's legacy]]. They are both considered among the war's greatest heroes. [[spoiler:Catherine Halsey]] the former's wife and latter's mother, isn't a fighter, but probably qualifies due to her unparalleled brilliance.
** The Spartans aren't actually related, but they consider each other family, and they are the most badass characters in the franchise. Since the second generation of Spartans including Master Chief were created/raised by Catherine Halsey, they could technically be considered her children [[spoiler:and thus related to the Keyes as well.]]
** In ''Halo Wars'' [[BadassNormal John Forge]] comes from a family that has served in the military all the way back to WWII. [[spoiler:That may have been what allowed him to waste the Arbiter's sorry alien ass]].

** [[GoldDigger Nami's]] adoptive family are pretty bad in their own right, the ActionMom Bell-mere is a former gun toting marine babe and still more then ready to get the drop on any bad guys who come knocking. Big Sister Nojiko while she lacks the prowless of her foster mother is still pretty damn badass, she tattooed and even saved [LovableCoward Usopp]] from some [[FishPeople half-fish villains]] early in the arc. Nami though she youngest is actual by far the toughest, having endured being worked and trapped by the BigBad and [[HarmfulToMinors witnessed Bell-mere being shot right in front of her]]. Nami is also one incredibly tough babe, she is able to bring a full grown men down in one punch, survive crippling injuries and run a mile in heels... True Nami has to be saved by the big boys of the crew more often than not making her a FauxActionGirl at best but when she gets her moments Nami becomes a female powerhouse
