* ''Manga/ProjectArms'' brings us the Takatsuki family. Apparently the Takatsukis are descendants of the Rappa ninjas and once every few century a boy is born to the family with supernatural powers. The Takatsukis we have seen on panel include [[spoiler: Iwao "Silent Wolf" Takatsuki,a badass mercenary & shinobi whom the President of USA knows and trusts,his wife Misa Takatsuki,the neighborhood's sweetheart but who also happens to be a badass former mercenary and spends her spare time fighting off superhuman cyborgs with a M-60 without even soiling her dress and their adopted son]] Ryo who wields the terrible, planet destroying power of the Jabberwock.

You've got the AdventurerArchaeologist Gina, her adopted werecheetah and bodyguard sister Brittany who can run at mach speeds, the third sister Brianna who's known for making her own power armor and being a crack shot with a gun besides, the parents, an archmage (Theo) and the greatest warrior and martial artist of a parallel fantasy world (Julia), then finally Stripe, Brittany's husband, who's the apprentice of their world's superman after being bonded to some alien artifacts... from his world, he being an alien prince. Oh, and then there's young Tiffany, it's just a matter of time before she grows her badass wings ^^

Prior to the events of the game Johnny and Sonya were a pretty close BattleCouple who helped seal Shinnok and end the Netherrealm War and free the trapped revenant souls of Jax, Sub-Zero, and Scorpion from Quan Chi's dark magic.

* Kitty's family from [[http://kokoart.net/kokoart2/ Kokoart]]. Her father is a big guy with big muscles and lots of scars. Yet, he gets beaten by his wife with a [[MegatonPunch single punch]] ([[http://kokoart.net/kokoart/index.php?comic=101 here]]). Then, later in the comic, it's revealed that the whole family can ''bend iron bars in their hands'' and Kitty learns [[WaifFu matrial arts]] as her mother advised her, because people don't lose body pieces while she ''defends herself'' and it's ''easier to clean'' after the fight.

* ''Fanfic/ACrownOfStars'': Daniel and his family are the rulers of Avalon. Daniel and his wife Rayana are humans who ascended to godhood several millennia ago, and their numerous descendants are {{Physical God}}s or humans with divine blood. All of them have reality-warping, magical and/or psychic powers, have military training and lead their army from the frontlines.
* ''FanFic/ASmallCrime:'' [[spoiler: Siv is the leader of an assassin's guild (or at least in very high authority). Her little sister, Kit, is one of her best-trained members.]]
* ''FanFic/AKingdomDivided'' has [[BadassBookworm Cloudchaser]], her sister [[ShotgunsAreJustBetter Flitter]], and their cousin Cloud Kicker.
* Fanfic/RealityChecksNyxverse presents the Sparkle Clan as this -- in addition to [[BadassBookworm Twilight]], [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking Shining Armor]], and [[BadassPrincess Cadence]], Twilight and Shining's parents get their own moments of badassitude as well in different fics (in ''Nyx's Family'', Night Light gives a combination of a BadassBoast and TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to some tabloid reporters, while in ''Alicornundrum'', Velvet goes full MamaBear on some nobles badmouthing Twilight). Additionally, even Nyx gets BadassAdorable moments, while Spike (officially adopted in this series) eventually [[TookALevelInBadass takes a few levels]] [[spoiler: (especially when he learns to [[VoluntaryShapeshifting sizeshift]])]]. Ink Spot, Twilight's LoveInterest and eventual husband, gets in on this a few, mostly when he's being a PapaWolf for Nyx.
* By the end of ''Fanfic/YoungJusticeDarknessFalls'', we have 2 official badass families. On one side, we have the arrow/speedster family, united through [[spoiler: Wally West and Artemis Crock's marriage, which has the flash family on one side with SuperSpeed, and the BadassNormal family of Sportsmaster, Cheshire and Tigress on the other.]] The other family through marriage is the SuperMartian family, which has [[spoiler: Superman, Supergirl and Superboy on one side, while Martian Manhunter, Mrs. Martian and Beast boy are on the other.]] And even better, both families now have a grandkid as well.
* Set after [[Disney/LiloAndStitch the four movies and television show]], the entire [[FamilyOfChoice ohana]] qualifies as this by the events of ''FanFic/{{Aloha}}''. This family includes [[LivingWeapon Stitch]], [[EvilGenius Jumba]], [[ObstructiveBureaucrat Pleakley]], over six hundred twenty other [[LivingWeapon experiments]], the (reinstated) Captain Gantu of the Galactic Armada and [[BrilliantButLazy Galley Officer Reuben]], and [[HeartIsAnAwesomePower Lilo]]. Nani is about the most normal member and even she's got BigSisterInstinct on her side.
* In ''Fanfic/RyuugisTheGamesWePlay'', The Arc family is this. ''Everyone'' is a badass in some way. Even Juane, who managed to gain Gamer powers and went FromNobodyToNightmare.
* In the {{Manga/Naruto}} story {{FanFic/Vapors}} the Uzumaki Clan is this. They have four members, the minimum allowed to qualify as a ninja clan, one of whom was adopted in, but three of those members studied under a tannin or sannin's student while the Clan Head was apprenticed under the Fourth Hokage's apprentice and became an S-rank threat before turning 17.
* In the ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'', the Apple Family certainly counts, particularly since it's shown Big Macintosh is a potential Bearer of Honesty and Applebloom certainly has her BadassAdorable moments.
** The Apple Pie clan from [[BadFuture Dark World]], in part due to growing up in a WorldOfChaos. Their average reaction to a rampaging monster attacking their farm is to blow it up...then ''eat it''.
* In the {{Series/Arrow}} NextGenFic ''[[Fanfic/LegacySeries Legacy]]'', Oliver and Felicity's teenage son has a hard time believing that, "The whole family was vigilantes? Like, ''everybody''? Jesus Christ.” As various villains find out over the course of the series, it is an absolutely terrible idea to go up against the Queens.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles''. ActionMom, PapaWolf, [[GooGooGodlike baby]], [[AnnoyingYoungerSibling kid]], [[EmoTeen teen]]: check, check, check, check, and check.
* ''WesternAnimation/DespicableMe'': By the end of the sequel, [[spoiler: the Gru Family which includes- Gru himself, the girls, Dr. Nefario, the minions, Marlena Gru, and Lucy Wilde after she marries Gru count. In fact they rank right there with the Incredibles; and the Grus don't even have superpowers!]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TheCroods'' are a family of cavemen who are, from baby Sandy to elderly Gran, capable of defending themselves from and outwitting or outfighting nearly everything they come across.

* Generations upon generations of Sanchez bullfighters (and would-be musicians) right on down to Carlos, Carmen, Manolo [[spoiler: and Maria]] in ''WesternAnimation/TheBookOfLife''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* ''Film/TheHost'': The Parks. True, for most of the movie they're shown as bumbling idiots...until they meet up with the giant mutant that killed their youngest member. Cue the slow-motion and the classical music as they take turns stabbing, burning, shooting, and impaling it...while standing unprotected in a cloud of toxic gasses.
* ''Film/TheGodfather'': The Corleones. Except for [[ButtMonkey Fredo.]]
* The Cortez family from ''Film/SpyKids''.
* The family in ''Film/TheMummyTrilogy''. Except for [[UpperClassTwit Jonathan]], but he ''does'' try.
* Likewise the ''Franchise/{{Zorro}}'' sequels, although they suck.
* The [=McClanes=] in ''Franchise/DieHard''.
* The Torreto Gang of carjackers of ''Film/TheFastAndTheFurious'' franchise may be surrogate and multi-racial, but their love and loyalty towards each other is stronger than most RealLife blood-families. In fact, they ''explicitly' refer to each other as family rather than just "friends", particularly at gatherings and when saying grace at meals.
* ''Film/TheAddamsFamily''
* The Marshall family from ''Film/UpUpAndAway'', though some of them were old enough to be past their badass prime.
* ''Film/{{Tremors}}'': Gummer family in the first movie. Sequels have Burt being badass by himself.
* ''Film/KickAss'': Hit-Girl and Big Daddy.
* ''Franchise/StarWars'' has the Skywalker family and the Solo family, who are united by marriage. We've got ''two'' badass {{Action Mom}}s--a Princess and a Queen--''two'' {{badass}} Jedi warriors, one smuggler pilot-turned Rebel hero, and [[spoiler: ''two'' feared Dark Jedi, once we meet Han's son Kylo Ren]].
* The Shafts. Given that in a mid 90's movie adaptation the titular Film/{{Shaft}} is the nephew of the original ''and'' played by Creator/SamuelLJackson, being BadAss is a given.
* The [=McManuses=] of ''Film/TheBoondockSaints''.
* The ''Franchise/IndianaJones'' film take "keeping up with the Joneses" to a whole new level. The family that the Fuhrer declared war on? Not including friends of the family which include (but may not be limited to) a {{determinator}} kid, John Rhys-Davies, and a few Oxford professors and federal agents, just to recap...
** Dr. Henry Jones Sr. a CrazyAwesome BadassBookworm who takes out Nazis with [[ImprovisedWeapon fake Ming vases, ballpoint pens, an umbrella and a knowledge of Charlemagne's writings]].
** Dr. Henry "Indiana" Jones Jr. also known as Mr. "Hey let's take a poll on who here has survived an atomic bomb. Oh wait, that would be me, Superman and the Hulk". Let the record show that this man has bested a tank and three Nazi trucks in one sitting, a [[PunchPunchPunchUhOh Dragon]] in every film, aliens, supernatural forces, light sensitive rocks, angry natives and once stood face to face with Hitler, and ''got his autograph.'' BAD. ASS.
** Henry "Mutt" Jones the Third. a BadassBiker who fences against highly trained psychic Russian spymasters, swings around in trees with monkeys and carries a comb with him wherever he goes.
** And then Marian Ravenwood who (while not technically a true Jones) is the best drinker this side of the Himalayas and was willing to put on a [[FanService pretty dress]] just to have the opportunity to knife her friendly captor and escape. She also survives snakes, Nazis, and oh yeah, [[SmiteMeOhMightySmiter the wrath of God]].
*** She also drove a car through the jungle to rescue herself, Indy, and Mutt from their Communist captors. And ultimately rescued them all ''by driving off of a cliff and into a river'' with nary a scratch on any of them. A maneuver which freaked out ''Indy''. Oh, and since [[spoiler:she and Indy get married by the end of the fourth movie, it's safe to say she's in the family.]]
* Then there are the Mc Candles in '''Film/BigJake'''. Led by [[Creator/JohnWayne guess who?]]
* The Racers in the film adaptation of ''Film/SpeedRacer'' and extended family all apparently know how to deal out some awesome whoopass. Except [[ButtMonkey Sparky]].
** Who still tries and manages to help out in his own way.
* Tackleberry has founded one in the later ''Film/PoliceAcademy'' films. They all sleep with a weapon under their pillow, and [[MuggingTheMonster woe the burglar that picks their house as a target]].
-->'''Father:''' Should we call for backup?
-->'''Son:''' No. We can handle it.
** His wife's family was the same way. Her father was a retired cop, she and her brother were cops and Mom was just as tough. They used to punch each other as a sign of affection.
* The Stronghold family from ''Film/SkyHigh''.
* ''Film/{{Hanna}}''
* Many [[HumongousMecha Jaeger]] pilot teams in ''Film/PacificRim'' are this. Raleigh and Yancy Becket are brothers. Cheung, Jin, and Hu Wei are [[SameSexTriplets identical triplets]]. Hercules and Chuck Hansen are father and son. Aleksis and Sasha Kaidonovsky are married. Some other (deceased or retired) Jaeger teams were [[AlwaysIdenticalTwins identical twins]] (Romeo Blue), male-female cousins (Chrome Brutus), and married couples (Tacit Ronin, Brawler Yukon).
* Byron Williams and his two sons did their own separate, but heroic acts in ''Film/MarsAttacks''
[[/folder]]



[[folder: Mythology And Religion]]
* [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Greek Gods]] - all of them badass, almost all related in one way or another. All children of Zeus were badasses, including several demigod heroes like Heracles, Perseus or brothers Castor and Polidekus. There's also Typhon's family - dad is EldritchAbomination that make gods flee from Olympus, mom, Echnida, is a giant multiple-headed snake and their children are several well-known monsters, including Cerberus, Hydra and Chimera. Incidentally, Typhon is related to the Greek Gods by way of their grandmother, Typhon's mother, Gaea.
* The Tuatha de Danaan of Myth/CelticMythology are a tribe of related deities, mortals, and demigods.
** Pretty much any man blood related to Cathbad the druid grew up to be a total badass from Conchobar mac Nessa, [[WarriorPrince warrior king of Ulster]], to Conall Cernach, the number one cause of death among men of Connacht, to Cu Chulainn, the greatest hero in all of Ireland.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Podcasts]]
* The Calloway family from {{Podcasts/Gays In Capes}} is a classic example. Pretty much any member of all three generations can [[spoiler:and has]] put a boss in the ground single-handedly.
* The Rivendorn family from the {{Podcasts/Critical Hit}}, with both parents being spellcasters of TheArchmage level of power, just as the generations before them are alleged to be. This is the reason why Rivendown name [[AsskickingEqualsAuthority carries some weight]], and it sets young [[AnAdventurerIsYou Orem]] a tough act to follow. He manages.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]
* The Harts. Stu Hart had 12 kids, 8 boys and 4 girls. Seven of the boys became wrestlers (most famously Wrestling/{{Bret|Hart}} and Wrestling/{{Owen|Hart}}) and the only one who didn't wrestle became a referee. The four girls all married wrestlers (including Jim Neidhart and Wrestling/DaveyBoySmith). Stu's grandchildren include Teddy Hart, David Hart Smith and Wrestling/NatalyaNeidhart.
* The Windhams. [[Wrestling/TheBlackjacks Blackjack Mulligan]] (Robert Windham) had two sons who wrestled: Wrestling/{{Barry|Windham}} and Kendall. His daughter married Barry's former tag team partner, Wrestling/MikeRotunda, and their sons Wrestling/{{Bo|Dallas}} and Windham are currently in WWE. Windham is Wrestling/BrayWyatt and Bo is Wrestling/BoDallas.
* The Funks: Dory Sr. and his two boys, Dory Jr. and Wrestling/{{Terry|Funk}}. The sons are the only brothers to be NWA World Champion.
* Almost all of the Samoan wrestlers are interrelated. Peter Maivia, Afa, Sika, Samu, Fatu/Wrestling/{{Rikishi}}, Jamal/Wrestling/{{Umaga}}, Rosie, [[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson The Rock]], Wrestling/{{Yokozuna}}, Wrestling/RomanReigns, Wrestling/TheUsos and others.
* The Vachons: brothers Maurice "Mad Dog" and Paul "The Butcher", their sister Vivian and Paul's daughter Wrestling/{{Luna|Vachon}}.
* The Guerreros: Gory Guerrero, his four sons (Chavo Sr., Hector, Mando and Wrestling/{{Eddie|Guerrero}}) and his grandson, Wrestling/ChavoGuerreroJr
* The Armstrongs: "Bullet" Bob Armstrong had four sons who wrestled: Brad, Scott, Steve and Brian (Road Dogg in WWE).
* The [=McMahons=]: Wrestling/VinceMcMahon (60something billionaire who takes chair shots and beatings for fun and profit), his wife Linda, son Wrestling/ShaneMcMahon (PWI's Rookie of the Year, known widely for surprising amounts of wrestling ability), daughter Wrestling/StephanieMcMahon (head of creative and wrestler), and Stephanie's husband, thirteen-time champion Wrestling/TripleH.

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* Most of the great Viking clans in ''TabletopGame/FateOfTheNornsRagnarok'' go out of their way to out-badass each other, notably in the "murder" department. The other have sired great heroes, such as Sigurd (Fafnir's slayer), Beowulf, etc.
* The Oberlindes Family in ''TabletopGame/{{Traveller}}''. They are a dynasty of frontier Merchant Princes who rose from being a band of [[IntrepidMerchant Free Traders]] to almost MegaCorp status. In the process they had more then one CrowningMomentOfAwesome. The most notable was when they bought a war surplus ship, fitted it out with weapons by [[TheScrounger convoluted and extralegal means]] and sent it to trade through Vargr space scareing off every [[SpacePirates corsair]] with their firepower.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}''
** TheEmperor and [[TrulySingleParent his sons]]. A [[PhysicalGod godlike]] [[CrystalDragonJesus saviour of humanity]], and twenty sons survived being scattered by [[CosmicHorrorStory Chaos]] across the galaxy, all growing up to be the progenitors of [[BadassArmy armies of]] [[SuperSoldier super-soldiers]]. Shame about the whole Literature/HorusHeresy deal.
** The protagonist of the Enforcer trilogy, Shira Calpurnia, seems to be upholding the family business of Professional Badass. The Calpurnii are from Ultramar, homeworld of the Ultramarines, a famous chapter, even if not the biggest nor the most badass. Calpurnii are rogue traders, Imperial Guard officers, lord admirals, Arbites commanders - Shira had a great cousin who was a fucking Ultramarine Terminator during the first Tyranid invasion. Shira herself is a lethal combatant in hand-to-hand or with a maul and shotgun, and proves repeatedly that solid fucking steel runs in her veins rather than blood. This is even brought up as a point in the story. Another arbiter notes that, by the standards of the Imperium as a whole, Calpurnia has a better pedigree and lineage than virtually all the nobles on Hydraphur.
* In the ''TabletopGame/BattleTech'' games's FutureHistory, a half-dozen families and their descendants were so epically badass in both giant mecha fighting and dominating people through sheer testicular fortitude that each family spawned an ''entire interstellar civilization''.
* The "Action Family" ensemble from the TabletopGame/FengShui supplement ''Friends Of The Dragon'' is essentially this -- a PlayerCharacter ensemble that kicks ass as a family.
* The Ortegas of ''TabletopGame/{{Malifaux}}'' are a family of monster-hunting gunslingers. They are tremendously successful in a job whose life expectancy is normally measured in days.
* ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' gives us The Abzan Houses of Tarkir, a massive clan of desert warriors with emphasis on ''clan''. Adoptive members alone include [[BirdPeople Aven vultures]], [[PettingZooPeople dog-like Ainok]], and several [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Orcs]]. Every member, [[OurGhostsAreDifferent living or dead]], is ready to march into battle, and they do it with all the comforts of home mounted on WarElephants. To top it all off, their signature mechanics are ''based'' on family bonds and allow them to gradually strengthen each other.
* In the ''[[TabletopGames/CerberusEngineGames Cartoon Network Crisis Crossover Deck-Building Game]]'', [[WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball The Wattersons]] count as a Super Hero.

** Dr. Henry Jones Sr. a CrazyAwesome BadassBookworm who takes out Nazis with [[ImprovisedWeapon fake Ming vases, ballpoint pens, an umbrella and a knowledge of Charlemagne's writings]].
** Dr. Henry "Indiana" Jones Jr. also known as Mr. "Hey let's take a poll on who here has survived an atomic bomb. Oh wait, that would be me, Superman and the Hulk". Let the record show that this man has bested a tank and three Nazi trucks in one sitting, a [[PunchPunchPunchUhOh Dragon]] in every film, aliens, supernatural forces, light sensitive rocks, angry natives and once stood face to face with Hitler, and ''got his autograph.''

** Henry "Mutt" Jones the Third. a BadassBiker who fences against highly trained psychic Russian spymasters, swings around in trees with monkeys and carries a comb with him wherever he goes.
** And then Marian Ravenwood who (while not technically a true Jones) is the best drinker this side of the Himalayas and was willing to put on a [[FanService pretty dress]] just to have the opportunity to knife her friendly captor and escape. She also survives snakes, Nazis, and oh yeah, [[SmiteMeOhMightySmiter the wrath of God]].
*** She also drove a car through the jungle to rescue herself, Indy, and Mutt from their Communist captors.

* ''Film/TheHost'': The Parks. True, for most Kitty's family from [[http://kokoart.net/kokoart2/ Kokoart]]. Her father is a big guy with big muscles and lots of scars. Yet, he gets beaten by his wife with a [[MegatonPunch single punch]] ([[http://kokoart.net/kokoart/index.php?comic=101 here]]). Then, later in the comic, it's revealed that the whole family can ''bend iron bars in their hands'' and Kitty learns [[WaifFu matrial arts]] as her mother advised her, because people don't lose body pieces while she ''defends herself'' and it's ''easier to clean'' after the fight.
* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius''
** Heterodynes are a family of powerful [[MadScientist Sparks]], who were feared and hated even among others of their own kind, to say nothing about the rest
of the movie they're shown as bumbling idiots...until they meet up continent. They created Castle Heterodyne – an omnipotent sentient SupervillainLair with a dark sense of humor and Jägermonsters – scientifically modified {{Super Soldier}}s, completely loyal to the giant mutant that killed house Heterodyne. Then Bill and Barry happened. They redeemed their youngest member. Cue family’s name by travelling across Europa and defeating monsters and evil Sparks, and were considered the slow-motion greatest heroes of their generation. There is also Agatha – a powerful Spark in her own right.
** Klaus
and Gilgamesh Wulfenbach. Klaus returned to Europa only with his infant son in tow and still managed to conquer a good chunk of the classical music as they take turns stabbing, burning, shooting, continent by himself, apparently for its own good. He is single-handedly keeping peace in his Empire by keeping rampaging madboys and impaling it...while standing unprotected arrogant nobles in a cloud check. He and Gilgamesh are both powerful Sparks and very potent fighters, to the point [[SuperSoldier Jägers]] are scared of toxic gasses.

** Valois/Sturmvoraus/von Blitzengaard family. Their ancestor was one of the greatest kings of all time - Andronicus Valois. Currently family consists mainly of {{Manipulative Bastard}}s, backstabbers and {{McNinja}}s.

* The Racers Walkertons in ''Webcomic/ItsWalky'' boast Linda Walkerton, one of the film adaptation of ''Film/SpeedRacer'' first and extended family arguably most successful alien hunters in that world (Though her claim that she singlehandedly killed all the Martians on Earth turned out to be an... exaggeration), as well as [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass David "Walky" Walkerton]] and his SeparatedAtBirth twin sister [[DarkActionGirl Sal Walters]], who are all-but-said to be the two most powerful Abductees in existence. Honorable mention goes to [[MightyGlacier Stephen "Beef" Walkerton]], who is not actually related to Walky but was raised as his brother (He was SwitchedAtBirth with Sal).

* The Cannon family in ''Webcomic/TheFancyAdventuresOfJackCannon''. The father takes down [[NotSoHarmlessVillain Hackers]] with his bare hands while wearing [[RealMenWearPink a pink Kiss The Cook apron]]. The mother throws knives with devastating accuracy, and may or may not be a ninja. And the son? Among other moments of extreme badassery, took down a Hacker combat expert WITH HIS OWN KNIFE, punched his way back up
to deal the surface when a Hacker had buried him deep underground, and is perhaps the only person in the world who can "bro-pound" with Max Facepuncher without shattering his hand. That last part is especially badass when you read the 24 hour comic "So Now I Hate The Moon", and realize that Max Facepuncher can punch people into the sun, and once killed the moon with a double facepunch. So Now I Hate The Moon starts here: http://forums.pulpfaction.net/viewtopic.php?f=60&t=4033
* The [=McNinja=] family of ''[[Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja The Adventures of Dr. McNinja]]'' is one of the most badass families
out some awesome whoopass. Except [[ButtMonkey Sparky]].
** Who still tries and manages
there. On top of being four of the deadliest ninjas in the world, one of them is also a doctor of EVERYTHING, one designs technology so advanced as to help out be indistinguishable from magic in his own way.
* Tackleberry has founded one in
spare-time, the later ''Film/PoliceAcademy'' films. They mom is a CompletePsycho, and the dad assumed the leadership role of all sleep American ninjas by virtue of the authority in his mustache (he also sets himself on fire for fun sometimes). On top of that you've got the Doc's sidekick, the sharpshooting-acrobat raptor-riding-bandito mustachioed-12-year-old Gordito along with a weapon under loyal receptionist Judy the GORILLA.
* The Bloodrage tribe in ''Webcomic/LookingForGroup'' lives up to
their pillow, name. The chief and [[MuggingTheMonster woe his sons are particularly fearsome; DO NOT ask them to surrender. Even the burglar that picks their house as adopted unknown race granddaughter/niece/daughter is a target]].

* A villainous (or possibly {{Anti Villain}}ous) example is the Kappel family from ''Webcomic/{{Collar 6}}'', with Michael Kappel and his wife Evita [[spoiler:aka Butterfly]] as insanely powerful doms, and their slaves possess
their own separate, superpowers. Sixx even refers to them as "[[http://collar6.com/archive/collar-6-250 A whole family of super powered assholes]]."
* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' has all of the Strider family. [[MemeticMutation All of them.]]
** Bro Strider [[spoiler:(really Ectobiological-Paradox-Clone-[[StableTimeLoop Stable-Time-Loop]]-Father Strider - ItMakesSenseInContext)]] is a master of the ironic arts, can FlashStep fast enough to use stop motion animation as a fighting technique, and is the only character in the comic powerful enough to fight [[BigBad Jack Noir]] to a standstill in single combat.
** Dave is probably the strongest of the kids [[spoiler:pre-God Tier]] and kicks a ridiculous amount of ass while in the Medium, not to mention the antics he gets up to [[spoiler:as Davesprite]].
** Finally, we have Dirk Strider, [[spoiler:the [[AlternateUniverse Alpha Universe]] incarnation of Bro]] who is arguably the most {{Badass}} of all. [[spoiler:Born in a BadFuture, he had to ''raise himself'' from birth with nothing
but heroic acts a DemonicDummy for company. He dabbles in ''Film/MarsAttacks''robotics - if by dabbling you mean creating fully sentient AIs and combat robots that can slay giant seadragon-lusii easily. (Dirk can beat these combatbots effortlessly, for comparison.) He maintains a [[HiveMind group consciousness]] by keeping his dream self awake permanently, and uses it to slay enemy agents in single hits and to stage rebellions ''just by showing up''. Oh, and did we mention he's BadassGay?]]
** We can't skip over [[spoiler:Alpha-universe Dave]], who has no trouble [[spoiler:assassinating a pair of juggalo presidents in one swing]].
** Since the Lalondes are biologically related to the Striders, it's probably safe to count them all as one big immensely badass family. To say nothing of the Egberts [[spoiler:/ Crockers]] and the Harleys [[spoiler:/ Englishes]]...
** In the Egbert [[spoiler:/ Crocker]] family we have Dad Egbert who repeatedly escaped from Dersite prisons and Dad Crocker who took over derse simply by being dapper
* [[Webcomic/BobAndGeorge The Andersons]] ([[{{Fanon}} though that's not their real surname...]]) kind of count. We have [[CainAndAbel Bob and George]] themselves, who are both {{Physical God}}s with ElementalPowers (PlayingWithFire and ShockAndAwe respectively), [[EldritchAbomination M]][[YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm o]][[BigGood m]], and her father, who according to WordOfGod, is [[spoiler:{{Satan}}]].
** The Light-bots count, too. There's no important androids created by Dr. Light who aren't badass. However, if you count the {{alternat|eUniverse}}ives, [[TheDitz Alternate Proto Man]] and [[YamatoNadeshiko Roll-J]] kinda count. [[ObfuscatingStupidity We're not sure, though.]]



[[folder: Mythology And Religion]]
* [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Greek Gods]] - all of them badass, almost all related in one way or another. All children of Zeus were badasses, including several demigod heroes like Heracles, Perseus or brothers Castor and Polidekus. There's also Typhon's family - dad is EldritchAbomination that make gods flee from Olympus, mom, Echnida, is a giant multiple-headed snake and their children are several well-known monsters, including Cerberus, Hydra and Chimera. Incidentally, Typhon is related to the Greek Gods by way of their grandmother, Typhon's mother, Gaea.
* The Tuatha de Danaan of Myth/CelticMythology are a tribe of related deities, mortals, and demigods.
** Pretty much any man blood related to Cathbad the druid grew up to be a total badass from Conchobar mac Nessa, [[WarriorPrince warrior king of Ulster]], to Conall Cernach, the number one cause of death among men of Connacht, to Cu Chulainn, the greatest hero in all of Ireland.

* [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Greek Gods]] - In ''Roleplay/TheGamersAlliance'', Clan d'Zarnagon, House Aurelac and House Ardyn definitely count. Their members have proven their mettle many times in fields of battle as well as in political scheming.
* The entire Von Shrakenberg clan in ''TabletopGame/TechInfantry''.
* The Wilson family of the Literature/WhateleyUniverse. Daughter Billie is Tennyo, one of the most powerful mutants on earth. As a teenager. Parents? Oh, they happen to be Flashlight (laser powers) and Weasel (strength, agility, second-storyman too), superheroes who secretly work for the CIA. Older brother and younger brother? Still teenagers and ''already'' working for the CIA too, since they have superpowers as well.
* Several agents of the WebOriginal/ProtectorsOfThePlotContinuum have formed family groups, and
all of them fall under this heading by default.
* The Harper Family in Roleplay/DCNation. Let's see...BadassNormal Roy Harper and ActionMom Troia. Then, there's Lian, who's twelve and becoming LittleMissBadass. Aiden is too young to manifest anything at this point, but that's probably going to change. Then you factor in the ''extended'' family of Arrows, Amazons, and Titans, some of the most fanatically family-oriented groups in Nationverse...
* Despite the fact that there's only one left, the Church family of ''Machinima/RedVsBlue''.
* [[VideoGame/HalfLife The Freemans]] in ''Fanfic/HalfLifeFullLifeConsequences''. We have [[BadassBookworm Gordon Freeman]], who's already
badass, almost his brother John Freeman, who when he [[PreAsskickingOneLiner "has to kill fast and bullets too slow"]], starts killing Combines with his "[[RougeAnglesOfSatin bear]] hands", and [[spoiler:shrugs off being hit by a ''rocket'']], [[spoiler:his son]] Henry Freeman, who gives the humens "[[RougeAnglesOfSatin hop]]", and rallies an army against the Combines. The only exception in the family might be Mom/[[spoiler:Wife]], who gets [[spoiler:[[SacrificialLamb "shot in head"]]]], setting off [[TheCallKnowsWhereYouLive the events of]] ''Hero Beggining''.
** Then again, she ''does'' deliver a message to her son ''[[{{Determinator}} after having her head blown off]].''
* The Cthoniques in ''Literature/CastleTerribel'', are a rather goofy version of this. Four [[EvilOverlord Dark Lords]], one of whom is undead, and
all related of them seem more enthusiastic about their hobbies and home life than causing trouble.
* The protagonists
in Literature/StrangeLittleBand are this in spades. You really don't want to make them angry. And being borderline {{Villain Protagonist}}s they mix it nicely with TheFamilyThatSlaysTogether.
* The [[Literature/TheJournalEntries Shardiks]]. Start something with them, and you may find an interstellar war coming at you. Start an interstellar war with their friends, and you may find your species extinct.

* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls''
** Parodied with the Smiths.
** The Utoniums themselves qualify: Supergenius dad, and three superhero daughters, and that's when Professor Utonium is just his normal self. This guy has the skill to create nearly any weapon he could imagine and has, on some occasions, donned a PoweredArmor suit of his own and helped out. He can get carried away, but still.
* The Bennets from ''WesternAnimation/BionicSix''.
* [[WesternAnimation/TheSecretSaturdays The Saturday family]]. The father is a GeniusBruiser with a power glove, the mother is a martial artist ActionMom with a FlamingSword,
one way or another. All children of Zeus were badasses, the 'kids' is a super strong ''Gorillacat'' and [[spoiler: the guardian of an ancient doomsday beast]], and the son is able to control cryptids, the most powerful animals on earth, [[spoiler: and is the reincarnation of the God of the Cryptids.]] Even the family pets are BadAss. And the SixthRanger of the team is mom's long-lost brother, a trained mercenary with all sorts of badass gear, including a jetpack.
* ''WesternAnimation/ElTigre'': The Riveras. In this family, being a super hero/villain is literally in the genes. Nearly every Rivera male known has been one.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'': The Tennysons. Even Ben's {{muggle|s}} dad turns out to be a badass in the episode "Goodbye And Good Riddance".
* Creator/HannaBarbera has a few of these:
** WesternAnimation/TheHerculoids.
** WesternAnimation/SpaceGhost and his wards, Jan and Jayce.
** WesternAnimation/JonnyQuest's family. Even more so in ''[[WesternAnimation/JonnyQuestTheRealAdventures The Real Adventures]]''.
* ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDragonJakeLong'': The Longs.
* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible''
** The Possibles. This counts even to Kim's known extended family such as [[NeverMessWithGranny her grandmother]], her uncle (dad's brother) and his daughter, Kim's cousin.
** The Gos, too.
** With the inclusion of Hana the Stoppables are too.
* ''WesternAnimation/AKindOfMagic'' has a French family steered by magical {{Badass}}ery.
* In ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', the Ursa/Ozai and Hakoda/Kya families. Which are related, spiritually, at least if one assumes Aang marries Katara. Aang's the reincarnation of Roku, who is Zuko's maternal great-grandfather. We should also count Uncle Iroh as Zuko's ParentalSubstitute. Toph isn't technically related either, but she ''is'' part of [[TrueCompanions Team Avatar]].
** However, in ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', Toph's two daughters are met. Lin, the tough, gruff, no nonsense Chief of Republic City Police, and Suyin the level-headed leader of the Metal Clan in Zaofu. Both are incredibly accomplished Earth and metalbenders, taking on the Red Lotus and the Earth Empire right alongside the New Team Avatar, Lin also faced the Equalists and nearly destroyed two of their airships. Suyin also has three badass children: A daughter who gained [[BlowYouAway airbending]] and became a master, and twin metalbending boys who serve alongside her mother as her teammates.
** Also Aang's and Katara's children and Tenzin with his kids.
* The Fentons from ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' (though Jack is one [[LetsGetDangerous only under pressure]]). Following the events of the GrandFinale, [[FanFic/FacingTheFutureSeries some stories]] like to take this trope up a notch.
* Do the Mallards from ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'' count? Only [[BadassNormal two]] [[FutureBadass members]], but...
** If we're talking about avians, the [[ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse McDuck dynasty]] is a badass ''dynasty'' with its own Ominous Latin BadassCreed: ''Fortuna Favet Fortibus"... Yes, it probably is a ShoutOut to the Duke of Wellington's Regiment, but hey
** If the Mallard Clan wasn't one before [[ComicBook/DarkwingDuck the new comic series]], they sure are now. We have BadassNormal Darkwing, Girlfriend/[[LadyOfBlackMagic Sorceress]] Morgana, Daughter[=/=]LittleMissBadass Gosalyn [[spoiler: who is the new [[PoweredArmor GizmoDuck]]]], and best friend/BenevolentBoss Launchpad, [[spoiler: who has an army of [[strike: Crimebots]] Herobots at his beck and call.]]
* The Venture Family, from ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' Jonas Venture, Jonas Jr, and the possible mother of Rusty's children Myra Brandish are all certifiable badasses. Helper the family robot at least looks badass in its battle mode too.
* In ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'', Dexter's family counts, especially in the episode where they have to use Dexter's robots to destroy an [[SealedEvilInACan ancient evil]] Dexter accidentally released. Somewhat parodied/{{lampshade|Hanging}}d by the background music that plays. "Go, Dexter Family go!"
* In a two-part episode of ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeARealAmericanHero'', Cobra ''really'' sank to a new low, kidnapping the parents and/or siblings or
several demigod heroes like Heracles, Perseus or prominent Joes and using MindControl to turn them against the heroes. But once the crisis was resolved and they were rescued, the Baroness tried to spite them by attacking Gung Ho's house. ''Very'' bad idea. By the time he and the other Joes even got there, his parents and siblings had trounced the bad guys. (And were laughing in the Baroness' face.)
* The Royal Flush Gang from ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'': A family of burglars pulling heists based on playing-cards. .. their daughter's relationship with Terry [=McGuiness=] was strangely [[DatingCatwoman deja vu]].
* ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGalaxyRangers''
** The Foxx family. Patriarch Zachary is TeamDad to his BadassCrew of Series 5 Rangers, but his kids have had a couple DayIntheLimelight episodes proving they can do pretty well at taking care of themselves. Even ''Eliza,'' who spends most of the series trapped in a SoulJar, has an AwesomeMoment beforehand - fighting off an armed {{Space Pirate|s}} and committing a HeroicSacrifice so her kids could escape!
** Zozo's family also counts. From Zozo, the {{Ambadassador}}, to his loudmouthed {{Shorttank}} brother, and his nieces and nephews who can be pretty clever when they want to be.
* ''WesternAnimation/StreetSharks''. Four
brothers Castor who are all now shark mutants, plus their dad, who is apparently a genius and Polidekus. is doing really helpful stuff on the sidelines (even if he's kind of [[DisappearedDad vanished]]).
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''. But only a couple at a time are allowed to be badass together.
* The Chans in ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures''. There's an AdventurerArchaeologist version of Jackie Chan who fights dragons when not on digs; his niece, Jade, who can pull off [[StealthHiBye Stealth-hi-byes]] in outer space and [[FutureBadass grows up to be]] the leader of Section 13; and Uncle, a WitchDoctor whose magic gets more impressive with every season and ''also'' taught Jackie everything he knows about martial arts.
There's also Typhon's family - dad is EldritchAbomination that make gods flee from Olympus, mom, Echnida, is a giant multiple-headed snake and their children are several well-known monsters, including Cerberus, Hydra and Chimera. Incidentally, Typhon is criminal enforcer turned GentleGiant who isn't related to them but is still considered part of the Greek Gods by way of their grandmother, Typhon's mother, Gaea.
* The Tuatha de Danaan of Myth/CelticMythology are
family (and who has a tribe of related deities, mortals, and demigods.
** Pretty much any man blood related
mother you don't want to Cathbad the druid grew up to be a total mess with). To top it off, they have equally badass ancestors dating as far back as the Old West.
* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', the Apple family is fairly close to this. Applejack is the incarnation of the Element of Honesty, Big Macintosh is capable of pulling a house off of it's foundations (while ''bouncing''), Applebloom has performed dozens of death-defying stunts with her friends in their quest to earn their Cutie Marks, and Granny Smith was one of the founders of Ponyville who, in her youth, braved [[{{Planimal}} (literal) timber wolves]] in order to get the magically-charged apples that helped kick-start her family farm.
** Not to mention that the rest of the mane 6 (each one of them a badass in their own way) are officially considered "honorary" family members.
** Celestia and Luna, being sisters, also qualify.
*** Their niece Cadence turns out to also be a BadassPrincess too. And since she married Twilight's brother, Twilight and her captain of the Royal Guard brother are now added to the list.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'':
** The Wyvern Clan themselves consider their entire clan to be family, and they certainly live up to the trope. They're a clan of winged reptilian warriors who regularly tangle with gangsters, mercenaries, cyborgs, demons and Fae spirits, and they've successfully managed to outlast [[LastOfHisKind the gradual decline and extinction of the rest of the Gargoyle species]].
** As of Fox and Xanatos' marriage, the Xanatos-Renard family counts. It includes a former FemmeFatale mercenary, an immortal Fae Queen, and not one but ''two'' ridiculously wealthy corporate industrialists with legions of {{cyberpunk}} tech at their disposal--including a personal hit-squad of winged cyborg warriors and a goddamn ''[[CoolAirship airship]]''. If you value your life, '''don't''' fuck with them.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLifeAsATeenageRobot''. The Wakemans. Nora Wakeman is a MadScientist and a decorated Skyway Patrol veteran. Jenny/XJ-9 is a ridiculously strong, state-of-the-art robot who was ''literally'' designed to be Earth's protector. Jenny's robot sisters, XJ-1 through 8, are single-function prototypes, but they kick ''major'' ass when they [[CombiningMecha join forces]]. [[GranolaGirl Aunt Wisteria]] can [[GreenThumb create almost anything out of plants]] (including ''sentient life''), and [[PlantPerson Cousin Glenn]] is a BoisterousBruiser. And since [[HumongousMecha Armageddroid]] was the first sentient robot created by Dr. Wakeman, you could arguably include him in the family roster as well.
* ''WesternAnimation/AtomicBetty'' and her family. Betty and her maternal grandparents are galactic guardians; her uncle
from Conchobar mac Nessa, [[WarriorPrince warrior king of Ulster]], to Conall Cernach, "Rodeo Robots" is a cowboy; and her parents, while almost never seen fighting, have shown Greenbeard's gang what they're made of. And they thought they were fighting against actors.
* A recurring theme in ''Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'', starting in 2003,
the number Turtles and Splinter are a family, and they sometimes extend it with April, and Casey.
* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' has the Pines family, who have each displayed their own badass moments throughout the series. There's BadassBookworm Dipper who regularly takes on supernatural menaces and emerges the victor, with his [[BadassAdorable twin]] [[LittleMissBadass sister]] [[CuteBruiser Mabel]] right by his side. The twins' Great Uncle Stan was a boxer in his youth, and can still punch out a Pterodactyl and take on [[OneManArmy a horde of zombies single-handedly]] (not to mention scale a construction frame, punch out three eagles and climb a mountain bare-handed to rescue his great niece and nephew) in his [[BadassGrandpa sixties]]. Handyman Soos (who is more or less
one cause of death among men of Connacht, to Cu Chulainn, the greatest hero family) has great [[TheBigGuy strength]] and [[{{Acrofatic}} surprising athleticism]]. And as of the second half of Season Two, we also have [[spoiler: Stan's long lost [[BadassGrandpa twin brother]], [[BadassBookworm the Author of the Journals]] and a literal genius who not only creates devices that shouldn't theoretically be possible (like a perpetual motion machine), but managed to survive being trapped inside a nightmare dimension for ''thirty years''.]].
* WesternAnimation/TheXs are a family that is
in incompetent in normal situations, but will always pull through in the end.
* An extended family example: the [[Disney/LiloAndStitch Pele]][[WesternAnimation/LiloAndStitchTheSeries kai]] ''[='=]ohana''. You've got a BadassPacifist little girl who, [[ParentalAbandonment despite losing her parents]], managed to reform over 600 artificial alien lifeforms who were designed to be evil into using their abilities for good and seeing one another as family (Lilo Pelekai), her older sister who will [[MamaBear do anything to protect her]] (Nani Pelekai), the "EvilGenius" creator of said lifeforms who is a [[BadassBookworm biogeneticist and engineer]] with StoutStrength serving as their [[HonoraryUncle "uncle"]] (Jumba Jookiba), a NervousWreck serving as their [[HonoraryAunt "aunt"]] who nonetheless has actually helped with reforming the lifeforms and had some CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass moments ([[GenderBlenderName Wendy]] Pleakley), and finally the alien lifeforms themselves (the [[Characters/LiloAndStitchExperiments experiments]]),
all of Ireland.them with unique powers and abilities who see each other as "cousins" to one another, with their youngest being their [[GeniusBruiser strongest and smartest]] who managed to pull everyone together while serving as the little girl's pet "dog" and [[LikeBrotherAndSister brotherly]] [[PlatonicLifePartners best friend]] (Stitch).



[[folder:Podcasts]]
* The Calloway family from {{Podcasts/Gays In Capes}} is a classic example. Pretty much any member of all three generations can [[spoiler:and has]] put a boss in the ground single-handedly.
* The Rivendorn family from the {{Podcasts/Critical Hit}}, with both parents being spellcasters of TheArchmage level of power, just as the generations before them are alleged to be. This is the reason why Rivendown name [[AsskickingEqualsAuthority carries some weight]], and it sets young [[AnAdventurerIsYou Orem]] a tough act to follow. He manages.

[[folder:Real Life]]
* The Calloway Norman De Hauteville family.
** William De Hauteville, son of a minor baron, and his brother Drogo went to Italy to earn their fame as mercenaries. William quickly became the second in command of a large group and during one battle he cut the Emir of Syracuse in half at the waist, earning him the name Iron Arm. Later he fought in the Lombard rebellion against the Byzantium Empire. He defeated the Imperial army several times and was made Duke of Apulia and Calabria and Overlord of the Normans in Italy.
** A younger Brother Humphrey then took control after his death. Later, the Pope, who was annoyed by the Norman power in Italy, sent the Papal Army and the Imperial army of the Holy Roman Empire south to destroy them. Humphrey defeated them and took the Pope captive for a year.
** To top it off they went on to become Kings of southern Italy and Sicily as well as some of the leaders of the First Crusade.
* Kublai Khan and his family. Thirteen sons and two daughters, each with their own provence, between them they managed to take over heaps of China and become extremely famous in Europe.
** Not to mention that his grandfather was Genghis motherfucking Khan.
*** There is even a (generally discounted, but still) legend that Genghis Khan was actually Minamoto no Yoshitsune, which if true would expand Kublai's Badass Family Tree considerably.
* The Tenzings . A number of whom became great climbers including Tenzing Norgay.
* The Scipios who provided several generals including one that defeated several members of another Badass Family, the Barcids. Including the most famous Barcid of them all, Hannibal.
* The Piccards. Auguste, the grandfather, flew into the stratosphere in balloons and invented vehicles for deep-sea diving. His son, Jacques, refined those vehicles and became the first person to dive to the bottom of the deepest trench in the ocean. HIS son, Bertrand, became the first to fly around the world in a balloon.
* Niccolo, Maffeo, and Marco Polo.
* Owen and Richard Garriott and Aleksandr and Sergei Volkov, the only children of astronauts/cosmonauts to follow their fathers into space.
* The Borgias deserve mention here, if not for actual butt-kicking (which was present), then for becoming one of the most INFAMOUS families in history.
* ''Series/{{Dog the Bounty Hunter}}'' is about a whole
family from {{Podcasts/Gays In Capes}} who cooperates in hunting bail jumpers and then rubs it in by gently telling the miscreants to [[RealMenLoveJesus get right with the Lord]]
* The Gracie family. The late Helio and Carlos Gracie essentially created Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and left a legacy of legendary fighters who have competed at the international level in both Jiu-jitsu and UsefulNotes/MixedMartialArts. Some of the better known ones are Royce, the first UFC champ. Renzo, Royler and Ryan all competed in PRIDE. Rickson and Relson were supposedly even better than Royce but were too old to have a large impact when MMA really started and now Kyra Gracie
is looking to enter into female MMA.
** Royce Gracie was actually picked to represent the family's "Gracie Jiu Jitsu" specifically to emphasize WeakButSkilled, but so far it seems to be mainly Roger Gracie -- grandson of Carlos Sr. (mother's side) and one of the only six men black belted by Rolls Gracie -- who holds up the Gracie banner at the top level in jiu-jitsu.
** To quote Creator/{{Seanbaby}} in an article about [[SmallNameBigEgo ridiculous liars]] in MMA, "[[http://www.cracked.com/blog/7-fighters-who-lied-their-way-to-legendary/ there are so many Gracies that teach jiu-jitsu that it's actually sort of an achievement to make up two names and not accidentally pick
a classic example. Pretty much any real one]]".
* The aristocratic [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richthofen Richtofen]] family managed to turn out no less than three ace pilots during UsefulNotes/WorldWarI. The most famous was Manfred von Richthofen, known better as the MemeticBadass RedBaron . Manfred's younger brother Lothar and his fourth cousin Wolfram were also flying aces. There were also several other members of the family who gained fame of some sort, but not for badass deeds.
** Though the least said of the SelfMadeOrphan [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suzane_von_Richthofen who sullied the surname's history in Brazil]], the better.
** There is at least one descendant presently in the German Air Force.
* During the second Philippines Campaign in 1944, Mrs Jean Mac Arthur and the son Arthur Mac Arthur sailed to Manila and billeted in the ruined city before the fighting was even over. Mrs Mac Arthur went into her son's room and found him trembling. Then little Mac Arthur said, "Are those our guns, mom?" On being assured that they were, little Mac Arthur leaned back on the bed [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome and just went to sleep]]. LikeFatherLikeSon indeed.
* The Royal House of Wessex. Not only did it bring forth [[UsefulNotes/AlfredTheGreat England's greatest monarch]], but his son and daughter were themselves to win a CurbStompBattle over the Danes at the Battle of Tettenhall. That family founded a [[TheKingdom kingdom]] that actually did manage to TakeOverTheWorld for [[UsefulNotes/TheBritishEmpire a while]]. They definitely qualify as a Badass Family, considering that greatest monarch's descendants have ruled the kingdom he founded in a nearly unbroken line going back two millennia. His great-many-times-over-granddaughter is UsefulNotes/HMTheQueen, Elizabeth II.
* UsefulNotes/TheodoreRoosevelt, the least of his badassery being completing an hour and a half long speech with a bullet in his chest, and volunteering to fight in World War I despite being in his 50s. All of his sons were in the military, two of whom served in both World War I and II. There are only two father and son pairs who received the Medal of Honor, and their names are [=McArthur=] and Roosevelt. Theodore Roosevelt III was a Navy pilot, and Theodore Roosevelt IV was a
member of all three generations can [[spoiler:and has]] put a boss in one of the ground single-handedly.
* The Rivendorn family
Navy's Underwater Demolition Teams, the precursors to the Navy Seals. You'd have a hard time finding a more badass family.
** That's just the senior male line. All of T.R.'s sons were badass in some way, as have been many of his other descendants.
** Speaking of Roosevelts, Teddy's distant cousin UsefulNotes/FranklinDRoosevelt may not have served in combat, but was a dominant political force
from the {{Podcasts/Critical Hit}}, with both parents 1930s through his death in 1945, despite having been crippled by polio in 1921. He became the only American president to be elected to more than two terms, (at the time there was no limit on the number of terms one person could spend as president) being spellcasters elected a total of TheArchmage level of power, just as ''four times''. He also refused to accept being paralyzed and through the generations before use of metal braces on his legs ''actually learned to walk again'' for short distances. FDR was the man who saw the United States through the panic of the 1930s and the darkest days of UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, and he did it from a ''wheelchair''.
** And then there was Eleanor Roosevelt, Teddy's niece and also FDR's fifth cousin and (later) wife. The woman had balls as big as Teddy, singlehandedly redefining the position of the First Lady in an era when the position was strictly in the background. She was a feminist and staunch supporter of Civil Rights, publicly opposed her husband's order to send Japanese-Americans into internment camps during WWII, lobbied her husband to provide asylum to groups persecuted by the Nazis, and was constantly active on the homefront in support of the war effort.
** Not to mention that UsefulNotes/WinstonChurchill was his even more distant cousin.
* The Kelly brothers. Both Scott Kelly and his twin brother Mark Kelly are US Navy combat and test pilots and NASA Astronauts. Mark Kelly is married to US Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, who returned to work on 2011 Aug 1, eight months after being shot in the head.
* Lighthouse Keepers were often whole families tending a lighthouse and several did heroic deeds.
* The Staal brothers of Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada. Eric, Marc, Jordan, and Jared are all active in the NHL as of November 2013.
* There are records of cases where a family's tradition seems to be being BadAss which can be easily found in places like US Marine Enlistment Roster. Some have been in the Marines since it was founded.
* Any sort of family with a military tradition, where members volunteer for the military even without a pressing national need to serve.
* Creator/JaneAusten. She had two brothers who became admiral and lived in a circle of gentry who were very warlike [[MoreThanMeetsTheEye despite their dandyish appearance]]. They may have had {{Big Fancy House}}s and gone to DancesAndBalls. But all that was [[{{Plunder}} unwillingly subsidized]] by the French government.
* The Junii of Ancient Rome. You know your street rep is good when you have a reputation for ''murdering tyrants.''
* UsefulNotes/TheHouseOfPlantagenet, the royal house that gave England Richard the Lion-Heart, Edward I, Edward III, Henry IV, Henry V, and Edward IV. Special mention has to be given to Henry V and his three brothers. The four of
them are alleged to be. This is nearly ''succeeded'' in conquering France. Also, The House of York who became TheRemnant, the reason why Rivendown name [[AsskickingEqualsAuthority carries some weight]], last York King and it sets young [[AnAdventurerIsYou Orem]] a tough act the last Plantagenet King was UsefulNotes/RichardIII and he's the last English king to follow. He manages. be killed in battle, having died, "in the thickest presse".
* The [[BadassIsraeli Netanyahu brothers]] (Yonatan, [[UsefulNotes/BenjaminNetanyahu Benjamin]] and Iddo) were all members of Israel's elite Sayeret Matkal commando unit.




[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]
* The Harts. Stu Hart had 12 kids, 8 boys and 4 girls. Seven of the boys became wrestlers (most famously Wrestling/{{Bret|Hart}} and Wrestling/{{Owen|Hart}}) and the only one who didn't wrestle became a referee. The four girls all married wrestlers (including Jim Neidhart and Wrestling/DaveyBoySmith). Stu's grandchildren include Teddy Hart, David Hart Smith and Wrestling/NatalyaNeidhart.
* The Windhams. [[Wrestling/TheBlackjacks Blackjack Mulligan]] (Robert Windham) had two sons who wrestled: Wrestling/{{Barry|Windham}} and Kendall. His daughter married Barry's former tag team partner, Wrestling/MikeRotunda, and their sons Wrestling/{{Bo|Dallas}} and Windham are currently in WWE. Windham is Wrestling/BrayWyatt and Bo is Wrestling/BoDallas.
* The Funks: Dory Sr. and his two boys, Dory Jr. and Wrestling/{{Terry|Funk}}. The sons are the only brothers to be NWA World Champion.
* Almost all of the Samoan wrestlers are interrelated. Peter Maivia, Afa, Sika, Samu, Fatu/Wrestling/{{Rikishi}}, Jamal/Wrestling/{{Umaga}}, Rosie, [[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson The Rock]], Wrestling/{{Yokozuna}}, Wrestling/RomanReigns, Wrestling/TheUsos and others.
* The Vachons: brothers Maurice "Mad Dog" and Paul "The Butcher", their sister Vivian and Paul's daughter Wrestling/{{Luna|Vachon}}.
* The Guerreros: Gory Guerrero, his four sons (Chavo Sr., Hector, Mando and Wrestling/{{Eddie|Guerrero}}) and his grandson, Wrestling/ChavoGuerreroJr
* The Armstrongs: "Bullet" Bob Armstrong had four sons who wrestled: Brad, Scott, Steve and Brian (Road Dogg in WWE).
* The [=McMahons=]: Wrestling/VinceMcMahon (60something billionaire who takes chair shots and beatings for fun and profit), his wife Linda, son Wrestling/ShaneMcMahon (PWI's Rookie of the Year, known widely for surprising amounts of wrestling ability), daughter Wrestling/StephanieMcMahon (head of creative and wrestler), and Stephanie's husband, thirteen-time champion Wrestling/TripleH.

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* Most of the great Viking clans in ''TabletopGame/FateOfTheNornsRagnarok'' go out of their way to out-badass each other, notably in the "murder" department. The other have sired great heroes, such as Sigurd (Fafnir's slayer), Beowulf, etc.
* The Oberlindes Family in ''TabletopGame/{{Traveller}}''. They are a dynasty of frontier Merchant Princes who rose from being a band of [[IntrepidMerchant Free Traders]] to almost MegaCorp status. In the process they had more then one CrowningMomentOfAwesome. The most notable was when they bought a war surplus ship, fitted it out with weapons by [[TheScrounger convoluted and extralegal means]] and sent it to trade through Vargr space scareing off every [[SpacePirates corsair]] with their firepower.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}''
** TheEmperor and [[TrulySingleParent his sons]]. A [[PhysicalGod godlike]] [[CrystalDragonJesus saviour of humanity]], and twenty sons survived being scattered by [[CosmicHorrorStory Chaos]] across the galaxy, all growing up to be the progenitors of [[BadassArmy armies of]] [[SuperSoldier super-soldiers]]. Shame about the whole Literature/HorusHeresy deal.
** The protagonist of the Enforcer trilogy, Shira Calpurnia, seems to be upholding the family business of Professional Badass. The Calpurnii are from Ultramar, homeworld of the Ultramarines, a famous chapter, even if not the biggest nor the most badass. Calpurnii are rogue traders, Imperial Guard officers, lord admirals, Arbites commanders - Shira had a great cousin who was a fucking Ultramarine Terminator during the first Tyranid invasion. Shira herself is a lethal combatant in hand-to-hand or with a maul and shotgun, and proves repeatedly that solid fucking steel runs in her veins rather than blood. This is even brought up as a point in the story. Another arbiter notes that, by the standards of the Imperium as a whole, Calpurnia has a better pedigree and lineage than virtually all the nobles on Hydraphur.
* In the ''TabletopGame/BattleTech'' games's FutureHistory, a half-dozen families and their descendants were so epically badass in both giant mecha fighting and dominating people through sheer testicular fortitude that each family spawned an ''entire interstellar civilization''.
* The "Action Family" ensemble from the TabletopGame/FengShui supplement ''Friends Of The Dragon'' is essentially this -- a PlayerCharacter ensemble that kicks ass as a family.
* The Ortegas of ''TabletopGame/{{Malifaux}}'' are a family of monster-hunting gunslingers. They are tremendously successful in a job whose life expectancy is normally measured in days.
* ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' gives us The Abzan Houses of Tarkir, a massive clan of desert warriors with emphasis on ''clan''. Adoptive members alone include [[BirdPeople Aven vultures]], [[PettingZooPeople dog-like Ainok]], and several [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Orcs]]. Every member, [[OurGhostsAreDifferent living or dead]], is ready to march into battle, and they do it with all the comforts of home mounted on WarElephants. To top it all off, their signature mechanics are ''based'' on family bonds and allow them to gradually strengthen each other.
* In the ''[[TabletopGames/CerberusEngineGames Cartoon Network Crisis Crossover Deck-Building Game]]'', [[WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball The Wattersons]] count as a Super Hero.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* The Ushiromiya Family of ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'' also qualifies as a BigScrewedUpFamily, oddly enough. Grandfather Kinzo has no talent for magic, but through several years of research and determination, managed to become a master summoner. He may not be able to use magic to even heat water to brew tea, but can summon a demon able to boil ''an ocean''. Eva is very skilled at martial arts, and Eva-Beatrice may be a sadist who likes to kill people in gruesome ways, but is pretty badass herself. Rosa managed to put a fight with a ''army'' of goatmen with only a gun, a purse, a pen and a gold bar. Jessica and George are [[BadassNormal Normal Badasses]] able to channel SupernaturalMartialArts with sheer willpower. And there's Battler [[spoiler:aka, the Endless Sorcerer.]]
* ''Franchise/AceAttorney''
** Unconventional example in the dysfunctional Fey clan, a group of otherwise staid women who are frequently locked in bloody conflict. Badasses for good include IronWoobie Maya, BadassTeacher Mia, YamatoNadeshiko [[spoiler:Iris]], and MamaBear Misty. Badasses for evil include ManipulativeBastard Morgan and [[spoiler:Dahlia]]. It's really a disproportionate amount of badass to be spread over two generations of the same family, and may explain why they're always trying to murder one another. The [[spoiler:final]] case of the [[spoiler:third]] game is something of a master class in badass, culminating in [[spoiler: Mia giving a [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech Reason You Suck Speech]] to Dahlia so hardcore it ''sends her back to Hell.'']] ChildProdigy Pearl is nine in her first appearance but is reputedly more powerful in terms of spiritual power than Maya -- according to Maya herself, too!
** And an evil([[HeelFaceTurn ish]]) example in the von Karmas. Manfred von Karma, his daughter Franziska von Karma, and his adopted son Miles Edgeworth are all prosecutors so perfect and amazing that the only person to ever defeat them in court is the protagonist Phoenix Wright. Manfred's flawless record stretches out for decades, Miles is so ruthless and effective that he's been called ''The Demon Prosecutor'' and Franziska passed the bar at ''thirteen''.
** In the Apollo Justice arc, the Gavin brothers. You have the older brother Kristoph Gavin, defense attorney extraordinaire. Always a calm, cool and collected person who is not afraid to own your ass in court while being very courteous. [[spoiler:That is, unless you happen to reject him as a lawyer over a game of cards.]] And then you have rocker Klavier Gavin. Has his own band and has a very good reputation. Always willing to help Apollo [[spoiler:secure a conviction for a ''detective and bandmate'', even helping Apollo own Kristoph in court with the Jurist system.]]

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* The clan of [[AnthropomorphicObjects fruit]] {{ninja}}s in ''WebAnimation/BananaNanaNinja''
* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'':
** [[TheHero Ruby Rose]] is a nice little girl, but she'll ruin your day if you mess with her. Of course, do that and you'll be in the firing line of her older half-sister [[CuteBruiser Yang Xiao Long]] too. Oh, and Ruby's cool uncle Qrow, who ''will'' protect them no matter who you are or what you are. And then there's the matter of [[spoiler:the mysterious samurai woman who may or may not be Yang's MissingMom, who stepped in to save her daughter from a tight spot and caused her daughter's attacker to flee in terror at the mere sight of her. And their dad, who we haven't seen much of yet but is implied to be just as dangerous, being on a Grimm hunting team with them.]] Yep, not a family to be messed with.
** Jaune's family is implied to be this as well, having generations of warriors, heroes and hunters as his legacy. Jaune himself? [[IJustWantToBeBadass Not so much]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* Kitty's family from [[http://kokoart.net/kokoart2/ Kokoart]]. Her father is a big guy with big muscles and lots of scars. Yet, he gets beaten by his wife with a [[MegatonPunch single punch]] ([[http://kokoart.net/kokoart/index.php?comic=101 here]]). Then, later in the comic, it's revealed that the whole family can ''bend iron bars in their hands'' and Kitty learns [[WaifFu matrial arts]] as her mother advised her, because people don't lose body pieces while she ''defends herself'' and it's ''easier to clean'' after the fight.
* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius''
** Heterodynes are a family of powerful [[MadScientist Sparks]], who were feared and hated even among others of their own kind, to say nothing about the rest of the continent. They created Castle Heterodyne – an omnipotent sentient SupervillainLair with a dark sense of humor and Jägermonsters – scientifically modified {{Super Soldier}}s, completely loyal to the house Heterodyne. Then Bill and Barry happened. They redeemed their family’s name by travelling across Europa and defeating monsters and evil Sparks, and were considered the greatest heroes of their generation. There is also Agatha – a powerful Spark in her own right.
** Klaus and Gilgamesh Wulfenbach. Klaus returned to Europa only with his infant son in tow and still managed to conquer a good chunk of the continent by himself, apparently for its own good. He is single-handedly keeping peace in his Empire by keeping rampaging madboys and arrogant nobles in check. He and Gilgamesh are both powerful Sparks and very potent fighters, to the point [[SuperSoldier Jägers]] are scared of them. If rumors are true [[spoiler: then there is also Baron's [[LongLostRelative long lost]] BadassNormal daughter - [[BadassPrincess princess Zeetha]].]]
** Valois/Sturmvoraus/von Blitzengaard family. Their ancestor was one of the greatest kings of all time - Andronicus Valois. Currently family consists mainly of {{Manipulative Bastard}}s, backstabbers and {{McNinja}}s. Most prominent members are Tarvek - once again a powerful Spark, exellent shamer and a good fighter and Violetta - a Smoke Knight.
* King Zahard's family from ''Webcomic/TowerOfGod''. Technically it consists of a group of adopted female warriors, Zahard's Princesses, who received a part of his power through his [[ThePowerOfBlood blood]]. This makes them so strong that they are forbidden to have any relationships, lest they spread that power uncontrolled.
* Webcomic/DominicDeegan's Deegan family. Mother Miranda, [[spoiler: retired]] head of the Quiral School of the Arcane Arts and as an arch-mage, a powerful wizard in her own right; father Donovan, a master swordsman, renowned duelist and bard trained by elves; Jacob, the first son, a powerful necromancer trained by one of the oldest known necromancers in the series history; main protagonist and second son Dominic, who is a master at second sight magic and has [[TheChessmaster a keen knack for planning numerous steps ahead]] (and also gets visions); and youngest son Greg, who is a perennially cheerful white mage and skilled musician in his own right. Also, there is Dominic's fiancée, Luna, who has a knack for illusion magic and [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome once humiliated an old enemy of the Deegan family in combat.]]
* The Walkertons in ''Webcomic/ItsWalky'' boast Linda Walkerton, one of the first and arguably most successful alien hunters in that world (Though her claim that she singlehandedly killed all the Martians on Earth turned out to be an... exaggeration), as well as [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass David "Walky" Walkerton]] and his SeparatedAtBirth twin sister [[DarkActionGirl Sal Walters]], who are all-but-said to be the two most powerful Abductees in existence. Honorable mention goes to [[MightyGlacier Stephen "Beef" Walkerton]], who is not actually related to Walky but was raised as his brother (He was SwitchedAtBirth with Sal).
* In ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', the Verres could count; Mr. Verres is a PapaWolf, his son Tedd is a MadScientist [[spoiler: who's been glowing lately so something's bound to happen]]. His cousin Nanase is a [[MagicalGirl Magical]] [[SupernaturalMartialArts Martial Artist]]. And the [[VoluntaryShapeshifting Shape Shifting]] [[HalfHumanHybrid Half-Squirrel Girl]] Grace lives with them and is Tedd's girlfriend. [[spoiler:And his [[MissingMom mother]] is apparently a legendary monster hunter. And his Aunt, Nanase's mother, is as involved in the weirdness as her brother-in-law is, but is better about hiding it from her children.]]
* The Cannon family in ''Webcomic/TheFancyAdventuresOfJackCannon''. The father takes down [[NotSoHarmlessVillain Hackers]] with his bare hands while wearing [[RealMenWearPink a pink Kiss The Cook apron]]. The mother throws knives with devastating accuracy, and may or may not be a ninja. And the son? Among other moments of extreme badassery, took down a Hacker combat expert WITH HIS OWN KNIFE, punched his way back up to the surface when a Hacker had buried him deep underground, and is perhaps the only person in the world who can "bro-pound" with Max Facepuncher without shattering his hand. That last part is especially badass when you read the 24 hour comic "So Now I Hate The Moon", and realize that Max Facepuncher can punch people into the sun, and once killed the moon with a double facepunch. So Now I Hate The Moon starts here: http://forums.pulpfaction.net/viewtopic.php?f=60&t=4033
* The [=McNinja=] family of ''[[Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja The Adventures of Dr. McNinja]]'' is one of the most badass families out there. On top of being four of the deadliest ninjas in the world, one of them is also a doctor of EVERYTHING, one designs technology so advanced as to be indistinguishable from magic in his spare-time, the mom is a CompletePsycho, and the dad assumed the leadership role of all American ninjas by virtue of the authority in his mustache (he also sets himself on fire for fun sometimes). On top of that you've got the Doc's sidekick, the sharpshooting-acrobat raptor-riding-bandito mustachioed-12-year-old Gordito along with loyal receptionist Judy the GORILLA.
* The Bloodrage tribe in ''Webcomic/LookingForGroup'' lives up to their name. The chief and his sons are particularly fearsome; DO NOT ask them to surrender. Even the adopted unknown race granddaughter/niece/daughter is a {{Badass}}.
* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' may be seeing the beginnings of one; see this t-shirt: http://www.cafepress.co.uk/orderofthestick/6985506
* The River family from ''Webcomic/IrregularElis''. A family of "{{Super Hero}}es" with Hanna-Barbera influence.
* The Andreyasn from ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'' are an interesting case. We've only seen [[BadassBookworm Kevyn]] and Breya, but they can both fight ("[[IHaveBrothers I have four brothers]]", "I'm one of her brothers"), and their mother doled out some interesting childhood advice.
-->'''Kevyn:''' Well, you know what mom always said...\\
'''Breya:''' If you swing first, swing hard, and connect.
* [[http://www.ambarb.com/?p=16 Yoosoman and his sons]] in ''Webcomic/AmericanBarbarian''.
* A villainous (or possibly {{Anti Villain}}ous) example is the Kappel family from ''Webcomic/{{Collar 6}}'', with Michael Kappel and his wife Evita [[spoiler:aka Butterfly]] as insanely powerful doms, and their slaves possess their own superpowers. Sixx even refers to them as "[[http://collar6.com/archive/collar-6-250 A whole family of super powered assholes]]."
* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' has all of the Strider family. [[MemeticMutation All of them.]]
** Bro Strider [[spoiler:(really Ectobiological-Paradox-Clone-[[StableTimeLoop Stable-Time-Loop]]-Father Strider - ItMakesSenseInContext)]] is a master of the ironic arts, can FlashStep fast enough to use stop motion animation as a fighting technique, and is the only character in the comic powerful enough to fight [[BigBad Jack Noir]] to a standstill in single combat.
** Dave is probably the strongest of the kids [[spoiler:pre-God Tier]] and kicks a ridiculous amount of ass while in the Medium, not to mention the antics he gets up to [[spoiler:as Davesprite]].
** Finally, we have Dirk Strider, [[spoiler:the [[AlternateUniverse Alpha Universe]] incarnation of Bro]] who is arguably the most {{Badass}} of all. [[spoiler:Born in a BadFuture, he had to ''raise himself'' from birth with nothing but a DemonicDummy for company. He dabbles in robotics - if by dabbling you mean creating fully sentient AIs and combat robots that can slay giant seadragon-lusii easily. (Dirk can beat these combatbots effortlessly, for comparison.) He maintains a [[HiveMind group consciousness]] by keeping his dream self awake permanently, and uses it to slay enemy agents in single hits and to stage rebellions ''just by showing up''. Oh, and did we mention he's BadassGay?]]
** We can't skip over [[spoiler:Alpha-universe Dave]], who has no trouble [[spoiler:assassinating a pair of juggalo presidents in one swing]].
** Since the Lalondes are biologically related to the Striders, it's probably safe to count them all as one big immensely badass family. To say nothing of the Egberts [[spoiler:/ Crockers]] and the Harleys [[spoiler:/ Englishes]]...
** In the Egbert [[spoiler:/ Crocker]] family we have Dad Egbert who repeatedly escaped from Dersite prisons and Dad Crocker who took over derse simply by being dapper
* [[Webcomic/BobAndGeorge The Andersons]] ([[{{Fanon}} though that's not their real surname...]]) kind of count. We have [[CainAndAbel Bob and George]] themselves, who are both {{Physical God}}s with ElementalPowers (PlayingWithFire and ShockAndAwe respectively), [[EldritchAbomination M]][[YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm o]][[BigGood m]], and her father, who according to WordOfGod, is [[spoiler:{{Satan}}]].
** The Light-bots count, too. There's no important androids created by Dr. Light who aren't badass. However, if you count the {{alternat|eUniverse}}ives, [[TheDitz Alternate Proto Man]] and [[YamatoNadeshiko Roll-J]] kinda count. [[ObfuscatingStupidity We're not sure, though.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Original]]
* In ''Roleplay/TheGamersAlliance'', Clan d'Zarnagon, House Aurelac and House Ardyn definitely count. Their members have proven their mettle many times in fields of battle as well as in political scheming.
* The entire Von Shrakenberg clan in ''TabletopGame/TechInfantry''.
* The Wilson family of the Literature/WhateleyUniverse. Daughter Billie is Tennyo, one of the most powerful mutants on earth. As a teenager. Parents? Oh, they happen to be Flashlight (laser powers) and Weasel (strength, agility, second-storyman too), superheroes who secretly work for the CIA. Older brother and younger brother? Still teenagers and ''already'' working for the CIA too, since they have superpowers as well.
* Several agents of the WebOriginal/ProtectorsOfThePlotContinuum have formed family groups, and all of them fall under this heading by default.
* The Harper Family in Roleplay/DCNation. Let's see...BadassNormal Roy Harper and ActionMom Troia. Then, there's Lian, who's twelve and becoming LittleMissBadass. Aiden is too young to manifest anything at this point, but that's probably going to change. Then you factor in the ''extended'' family of Arrows, Amazons, and Titans, some of the most fanatically family-oriented groups in Nationverse...
* Despite the fact that there's only one left, the Church family of ''Machinima/RedVsBlue''.
* [[VideoGame/HalfLife The Freemans]] in ''Fanfic/HalfLifeFullLifeConsequences''. We have [[BadassBookworm Gordon Freeman]], who's already badass, his brother John Freeman, who when he [[PreAsskickingOneLiner "has to kill fast and bullets too slow"]], starts killing Combines with his "[[RougeAnglesOfSatin bear]] hands", and [[spoiler:shrugs off being hit by a ''rocket'']], [[spoiler:his son]] Henry Freeman, who gives the humens "[[RougeAnglesOfSatin hop]]", and rallies an army against the Combines. The only exception in the family might be Mom/[[spoiler:Wife]], who gets [[spoiler:[[SacrificialLamb "shot in head"]]]], setting off [[TheCallKnowsWhereYouLive the events of]] ''Hero Beggining''.
** Then again, she ''does'' deliver a message to her son ''[[{{Determinator}} after having her head blown off]].''
* The Cthoniques in ''Literature/CastleTerribel'', are a rather goofy version of this. Four [[EvilOverlord Dark Lords]], one of whom is undead, and all of them seem more enthusiastic about their hobbies and home life than causing trouble.
* The protagonists in Literature/StrangeLittleBand are this in spades. You really don't want to make them angry. And being borderline {{Villain Protagonist}}s they mix it nicely with TheFamilyThatSlaysTogether.
* The [[Literature/TheJournalEntries Shardiks]]. Start something with them, and you may find an interstellar war coming at you. Start an interstellar war with their friends, and you may find your species extinct.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls''
** Parodied with the Smiths.
** The Utoniums themselves qualify: Supergenius dad, and three superhero daughters, and that's when Professor Utonium is just his normal self. This guy has the skill to create nearly any weapon he could imagine and has, on some occasions, donned a PoweredArmor suit of his own and helped out. He can get carried away, but still.
* The Bennets from ''WesternAnimation/BionicSix''.
* [[WesternAnimation/TheSecretSaturdays The Saturday family]]. The father is a GeniusBruiser with a power glove, the mother is a martial artist ActionMom with a FlamingSword, one of the 'kids' is a super strong ''Gorillacat'' and [[spoiler: the guardian of an ancient doomsday beast]], and the son is able to control cryptids, the most powerful animals on earth, [[spoiler: and is the reincarnation of the God of the Cryptids.]] Even the family pets are BadAss. And the SixthRanger of the team is mom's long-lost brother, a trained mercenary with all sorts of badass gear, including a jetpack.
* ''WesternAnimation/ElTigre'': The Riveras. In this family, being a super hero/villain is literally in the genes. Nearly every Rivera male known has been one.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'': The Tennysons. Even Ben's {{muggle|s}} dad turns out to be a badass in the episode "Goodbye And Good Riddance".
* Creator/HannaBarbera has a few of these:
** WesternAnimation/TheHerculoids.
** WesternAnimation/SpaceGhost and his wards, Jan and Jayce.
** WesternAnimation/JonnyQuest's family. Even more so in ''[[WesternAnimation/JonnyQuestTheRealAdventures The Real Adventures]]''.
* ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDragonJakeLong'': The Longs.
* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible''
** The Possibles. This counts even to Kim's known extended family such as [[NeverMessWithGranny her grandmother]], her uncle (dad's brother) and his daughter, Kim's cousin.
** The Gos, too.
** With the inclusion of Hana the Stoppables are too.
* ''WesternAnimation/AKindOfMagic'' has a French family steered by magical {{Badass}}ery.
* In ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', the Ursa/Ozai and Hakoda/Kya families. Which are related, spiritually, at least if one assumes Aang marries Katara. Aang's the reincarnation of Roku, who is Zuko's maternal great-grandfather. We should also count Uncle Iroh as Zuko's ParentalSubstitute. Toph isn't technically related either, but she ''is'' part of [[TrueCompanions Team Avatar]].
** However, in ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', Toph's two daughters are met. Lin, the tough, gruff, no nonsense Chief of Republic City Police, and Suyin the level-headed leader of the Metal Clan in Zaofu. Both are incredibly accomplished Earth and metalbenders, taking on the Red Lotus and the Earth Empire right alongside the New Team Avatar, Lin also faced the Equalists and nearly destroyed two of their airships. Suyin also has three badass children: A daughter who gained [[BlowYouAway airbending]] and became a master, and twin metalbending boys who serve alongside her mother as her teammates.
** Also Aang's and Katara's children and Tenzin with his kids.
* The Fentons from ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' (though Jack is one [[LetsGetDangerous only under pressure]]). Following the events of the GrandFinale, [[FanFic/FacingTheFutureSeries some stories]] like to take this trope up a notch.
* Do the Mallards from ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'' count? Only [[BadassNormal two]] [[FutureBadass members]], but...
** If we're talking about avians, the [[ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse McDuck dynasty]] is a badass ''dynasty'' with its own Ominous Latin BadassCreed: ''Fortuna Favet Fortibus"... Yes, it probably is a ShoutOut to the Duke of Wellington's Regiment, but hey
** If the Mallard Clan wasn't one before [[ComicBook/DarkwingDuck the new comic series]], they sure are now. We have BadassNormal Darkwing, Girlfriend/[[LadyOfBlackMagic Sorceress]] Morgana, Daughter[=/=]LittleMissBadass Gosalyn [[spoiler: who is the new [[PoweredArmor GizmoDuck]]]], and best friend/BenevolentBoss Launchpad, [[spoiler: who has an army of [[strike: Crimebots]] Herobots at his beck and call.]]
* The Venture Family, from ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' Jonas Venture, Jonas Jr, and the possible mother of Rusty's children Myra Brandish are all certifiable badasses. Helper the family robot at least looks badass in its battle mode too.
* In ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'', Dexter's family counts, especially in the episode where they have to use Dexter's robots to destroy an [[SealedEvilInACan ancient evil]] Dexter accidentally released. Somewhat parodied/{{lampshade|Hanging}}d by the background music that plays. "Go, Dexter Family go!"
* In a two-part episode of ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeARealAmericanHero'', Cobra ''really'' sank to a new low, kidnapping the parents and/or siblings or several prominent Joes and using MindControl to turn them against the heroes. But once the crisis was resolved and they were rescued, the Baroness tried to spite them by attacking Gung Ho's house. ''Very'' bad idea. By the time he and the other Joes even got there, his parents and siblings had trounced the bad guys. (And were laughing in the Baroness' face.)
* The Royal Flush Gang from ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'': A family of burglars pulling heists based on playing-cards. .. their daughter's relationship with Terry [=McGuiness=] was strangely [[DatingCatwoman deja vu]].
* ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGalaxyRangers''
** The Foxx family. Patriarch Zachary is TeamDad to his BadassCrew of Series 5 Rangers, but his kids have had a couple DayIntheLimelight episodes proving they can do pretty well at taking care of themselves. Even ''Eliza,'' who spends most of the series trapped in a SoulJar, has an AwesomeMoment beforehand - fighting off an armed {{Space Pirate|s}} and committing a HeroicSacrifice so her kids could escape!
** Zozo's family also counts. From Zozo, the {{Ambadassador}}, to his loudmouthed {{Shorttank}} brother, and his nieces and nephews who can be pretty clever when they want to be.
* ''WesternAnimation/StreetSharks''. Four brothers who are all now shark mutants, plus their dad, who is apparently a genius and is doing really helpful stuff on the sidelines (even if he's kind of [[DisappearedDad vanished]]).
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''. But only a couple at a time are allowed to be badass together.
* The Chans in ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures''. There's an AdventurerArchaeologist version of Jackie Chan who fights dragons when not on digs; his niece, Jade, who can pull off [[StealthHiBye Stealth-hi-byes]] in outer space and [[FutureBadass grows up to be]] the leader of Section 13; and Uncle, a WitchDoctor whose magic gets more impressive with every season and ''also'' taught Jackie everything he knows about martial arts. There's also a criminal enforcer turned GentleGiant who isn't related to them but is still considered part of the family (and who has a mother you don't want to mess with). To top it off, they have equally badass ancestors dating as far back as the Old West.
* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', the Apple family is fairly close to this. Applejack is the incarnation of the Element of Honesty, Big Macintosh is capable of pulling a house off of it's foundations (while ''bouncing''), Applebloom has performed dozens of death-defying stunts with her friends in their quest to earn their Cutie Marks, and Granny Smith was one of the founders of Ponyville who, in her youth, braved [[{{Planimal}} (literal) timber wolves]] in order to get the magically-charged apples that helped kick-start her family farm.
** Not to mention that the rest of the mane 6 (each one of them a badass in their own way) are officially considered "honorary" family members.
** Celestia and Luna, being sisters, also qualify.
*** Their niece Cadence turns out to also be a BadassPrincess too. And since she married Twilight's brother, Twilight and her captain of the Royal Guard brother are now added to the list.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'':
** The Wyvern Clan themselves consider their entire clan to be family, and they certainly live up to the trope. They're a clan of winged reptilian warriors who regularly tangle with gangsters, mercenaries, cyborgs, demons and Fae spirits, and they've successfully managed to outlast [[LastOfHisKind the gradual decline and extinction of the rest of the Gargoyle species]].
** As of Fox and Xanatos' marriage, the Xanatos-Renard family counts. It includes a former FemmeFatale mercenary, an immortal Fae Queen, and not one but ''two'' ridiculously wealthy corporate industrialists with legions of {{cyberpunk}} tech at their disposal--including a personal hit-squad of winged cyborg warriors and a goddamn ''[[CoolAirship airship]]''. If you value your life, '''don't''' fuck with them.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLifeAsATeenageRobot''. The Wakemans. Nora Wakeman is a MadScientist and a decorated Skyway Patrol veteran. Jenny/XJ-9 is a ridiculously strong, state-of-the-art robot who was ''literally'' designed to be Earth's protector. Jenny's robot sisters, XJ-1 through 8, are single-function prototypes, but they kick ''major'' ass when they [[CombiningMecha join forces]]. [[GranolaGirl Aunt Wisteria]] can [[GreenThumb create almost anything out of plants]] (including ''sentient life''), and [[PlantPerson Cousin Glenn]] is a BoisterousBruiser. And since [[HumongousMecha Armageddroid]] was the first sentient robot created by Dr. Wakeman, you could arguably include him in the family roster as well.
* ''WesternAnimation/AtomicBetty'' and her family. Betty and her maternal grandparents are galactic guardians; her uncle from "Rodeo Robots" is a cowboy; and her parents, while almost never seen fighting, have shown Greenbeard's gang what they're made of. And they thought they were fighting against actors.
* A recurring theme in ''Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'', starting in 2003, the Turtles and Splinter are a family, and they sometimes extend it with April, and Casey.
* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' has the Pines family, who have each displayed their own badass moments throughout the series. There's BadassBookworm Dipper who regularly takes on supernatural menaces and emerges the victor, with his [[BadassAdorable twin]] [[LittleMissBadass sister]] [[CuteBruiser Mabel]] right by his side. The twins' Great Uncle Stan was a boxer in his youth, and can still punch out a Pterodactyl and take on [[OneManArmy a horde of zombies single-handedly]] (not to mention scale a construction frame, punch out three eagles and climb a mountain bare-handed to rescue his great niece and nephew) in his [[BadassGrandpa sixties]]. Handyman Soos (who is more or less one of the family) has great [[TheBigGuy strength]] and [[{{Acrofatic}} surprising athleticism]]. And as of the second half of Season Two, we also have [[spoiler: Stan's long lost [[BadassGrandpa twin brother]], [[BadassBookworm the Author of the Journals]] and a literal genius who not only creates devices that shouldn't theoretically be possible (like a perpetual motion machine), but managed to survive being trapped inside a nightmare dimension for ''thirty years''.]].
* WesternAnimation/TheXs are a family that is in incompetent in normal situations, but will always pull through in the end.
* An extended family example: the [[Disney/LiloAndStitch Pele]][[WesternAnimation/LiloAndStitchTheSeries kai]] ''[='=]ohana''. You've got a BadassPacifist little girl who, [[ParentalAbandonment despite losing her parents]], managed to reform over 600 artificial alien lifeforms who were designed to be evil into using their abilities for good and seeing one another as family (Lilo Pelekai), her older sister who will [[MamaBear do anything to protect her]] (Nani Pelekai), the "EvilGenius" creator of said lifeforms who is a [[BadassBookworm biogeneticist and engineer]] with StoutStrength serving as their [[HonoraryUncle "uncle"]] (Jumba Jookiba), a NervousWreck serving as their [[HonoraryAunt "aunt"]] who nonetheless has actually helped with reforming the lifeforms and had some CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass moments ([[GenderBlenderName Wendy]] Pleakley), and finally the alien lifeforms themselves (the [[Characters/LiloAndStitchExperiments experiments]]), all of them with unique powers and abilities who see each other as "cousins" to one another, with their youngest being their [[GeniusBruiser strongest and smartest]] who managed to pull everyone together while serving as the little girl's pet "dog" and [[LikeBrotherAndSister brotherly]] [[PlatonicLifePartners best friend]] (Stitch).
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Real Life]]
* The Norman De Hauteville family.
** William De Hauteville, son of a minor baron, and his brother Drogo went to Italy to earn their fame as mercenaries. William quickly became the second in command of a large group and during one battle he cut the Emir of Syracuse in half at the waist, earning him the name Iron Arm. Later he fought in the Lombard rebellion against the Byzantium Empire. He defeated the Imperial army several times and was made Duke of Apulia and Calabria and Overlord of the Normans in Italy.
** A younger Brother Humphrey then took control after his death. Later, the Pope, who was annoyed by the Norman power in Italy, sent the Papal Army and the Imperial army of the Holy Roman Empire south to destroy them. Humphrey defeated them and took the Pope captive for a year.
** To top it off they went on to become Kings of southern Italy and Sicily as well as some of the leaders of the First Crusade.
* Kublai Khan and his family. Thirteen sons and two daughters, each with their own provence, between them they managed to take over heaps of China and become extremely famous in Europe.
** Not to mention that his grandfather was Genghis motherfucking Khan.
*** There is even a (generally discounted, but still) legend that Genghis Khan was actually Minamoto no Yoshitsune, which if true would expand Kublai's Badass Family Tree considerably.
* The Tenzings . A number of whom became great climbers including Tenzing Norgay.
* The Scipios who provided several generals including one that defeated several members of another Badass Family, the Barcids. Including the most famous Barcid of them all, Hannibal.
* The Piccards. Auguste, the grandfather, flew into the stratosphere in balloons and invented vehicles for deep-sea diving. His son, Jacques, refined those vehicles and became the first person to dive to the bottom of the deepest trench in the ocean. HIS son, Bertrand, became the first to fly around the world in a balloon.
* Niccolo, Maffeo, and Marco Polo.
* Owen and Richard Garriott and Aleksandr and Sergei Volkov, the only children of astronauts/cosmonauts to follow their fathers into space.
* The Borgias deserve mention here, if not for actual butt-kicking (which was present), then for becoming one of the most INFAMOUS families in history.
* ''Series/{{Dog the Bounty Hunter}}'' is about a whole family who cooperates in hunting bail jumpers and then rubs it in by gently telling the miscreants to [[RealMenLoveJesus get right with the Lord]]
* The Gracie family. The late Helio and Carlos Gracie essentially created Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and left a legacy of legendary fighters who have competed at the international level in both Jiu-jitsu and UsefulNotes/MixedMartialArts. Some of the better known ones are Royce, the first UFC champ. Renzo, Royler and Ryan all competed in PRIDE. Rickson and Relson were supposedly even better than Royce but were too old to have a large impact when MMA really started and now Kyra Gracie is looking to enter into female MMA.
** Royce Gracie was actually picked to represent the family's "Gracie Jiu Jitsu" specifically to emphasize WeakButSkilled, but so far it seems to be mainly Roger Gracie -- grandson of Carlos Sr. (mother's side) and one of the only six men black belted by Rolls Gracie -- who holds up the Gracie banner at the top level in jiu-jitsu.
** To quote Creator/{{Seanbaby}} in an article about [[SmallNameBigEgo ridiculous liars]] in MMA, "[[http://www.cracked.com/blog/7-fighters-who-lied-their-way-to-legendary/ there are so many Gracies that teach jiu-jitsu that it's actually sort of an achievement to make up two names and not accidentally pick a real one]]".
* The aristocratic [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richthofen Richtofen]] family managed to turn out no less than three ace pilots during UsefulNotes/WorldWarI. The most famous was Manfred von Richthofen, known better as the MemeticBadass RedBaron . Manfred's younger brother Lothar and his fourth cousin Wolfram were also flying aces. There were also several other members of the family who gained fame of some sort, but not for badass deeds.
** Though the least said of the SelfMadeOrphan [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suzane_von_Richthofen who sullied the surname's history in Brazil]], the better.
** There is at least one descendant presently in the German Air Force.
* During the second Philippines Campaign in 1944, Mrs Jean Mac Arthur and the son Arthur Mac Arthur sailed to Manila and billeted in the ruined city before the fighting was even over. Mrs Mac Arthur went into her son's room and found him trembling. Then little Mac Arthur said, "Are those our guns, mom?" On being assured that they were, little Mac Arthur leaned back on the bed [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome and just went to sleep]]. LikeFatherLikeSon indeed.
* The Royal House of Wessex. Not only did it bring forth [[UsefulNotes/AlfredTheGreat England's greatest monarch]], but his son and daughter were themselves to win a CurbStompBattle over the Danes at the Battle of Tettenhall. That family founded a [[TheKingdom kingdom]] that actually did manage to TakeOverTheWorld for [[UsefulNotes/TheBritishEmpire a while]]. They definitely qualify as a Badass Family, considering that greatest monarch's descendants have ruled the kingdom he founded in a nearly unbroken line going back two millennia. His great-many-times-over-granddaughter is UsefulNotes/HMTheQueen, Elizabeth II.
* UsefulNotes/TheodoreRoosevelt, the least of his badassery being completing an hour and a half long speech with a bullet in his chest, and volunteering to fight in World War I despite being in his 50s. All of his sons were in the military, two of whom served in both World War I and II. There are only two father and son pairs who received the Medal of Honor, and their names are [=McArthur=] and Roosevelt. Theodore Roosevelt III was a Navy pilot, and Theodore Roosevelt IV was a member of one of the Navy's Underwater Demolition Teams, the precursors to the Navy Seals. You'd have a hard time finding a more badass family.
** That's just the senior male line. All of T.R.'s sons were badass in some way, as have been many of his other descendants.
** Speaking of Roosevelts, Teddy's distant cousin UsefulNotes/FranklinDRoosevelt may not have served in combat, but was a dominant political force from the 1930s through his death in 1945, despite having been crippled by polio in 1921. He became the only American president to be elected to more than two terms, (at the time there was no limit on the number of terms one person could spend as president) being elected a total of ''four times''. He also refused to accept being paralyzed and through the use of metal braces on his legs ''actually learned to walk again'' for short distances. FDR was the man who saw the United States through the panic of the 1930s and the darkest days of UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, and he did it from a ''wheelchair''.
** And then there was Eleanor Roosevelt, Teddy's niece and also FDR's fifth cousin and (later) wife. The woman had balls as big as Teddy, singlehandedly redefining the position of the First Lady in an era when the position was strictly in the background. She was a feminist and staunch supporter of Civil Rights, publicly opposed her husband's order to send Japanese-Americans into internment camps during WWII, lobbied her husband to provide asylum to groups persecuted by the Nazis, and was constantly active on the homefront in support of the war effort.
** Not to mention that UsefulNotes/WinstonChurchill was his even more distant cousin.
* The Kelly brothers. Both Scott Kelly and his twin brother Mark Kelly are US Navy combat and test pilots and NASA Astronauts. Mark Kelly is married to US Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, who returned to work on 2011 Aug 1, eight months after being shot in the head.
* Lighthouse Keepers were often whole families tending a lighthouse and several did heroic deeds.
* The Staal brothers of Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada. Eric, Marc, Jordan, and Jared are all active in the NHL as of November 2013.
* There are records of cases where a family's tradition seems to be being BadAss which can be easily found in places like US Marine Enlistment Roster. Some have been in the Marines since it was founded.
* Any sort of family with a military tradition, where members volunteer for the military even without a pressing national need to serve.
* Creator/JaneAusten. She had two brothers who became admiral and lived in a circle of gentry who were very warlike [[MoreThanMeetsTheEye despite their dandyish appearance]]. They may have had {{Big Fancy House}}s and gone to DancesAndBalls. But all that was [[{{Plunder}} unwillingly subsidized]] by the French government.
* The Junii of Ancient Rome. You know your street rep is good when you have a reputation for ''murdering tyrants.''
* UsefulNotes/TheHouseOfPlantagenet, the royal house that gave England Richard the Lion-Heart, Edward I, Edward III, Henry IV, Henry V, and Edward IV. Special mention has to be given to Henry V and his three brothers. The four of them nearly ''succeeded'' in conquering France. Also, The House of York who became TheRemnant, the last York King and the last Plantagenet King was UsefulNotes/RichardIII and he's the last English king to be killed in battle, having died, "in the thickest presse".
* The [[BadassIsraeli Netanyahu brothers]] (Yonatan, [[UsefulNotes/BenjaminNetanyahu Benjamin]] and Iddo) were all members of Israel's elite Sayeret Matkal commando unit.

* On ''Series/{{Heroes}}'', The Petrellis and The Bennets. In the Petrellis, there's Arthur, the father, who can take other people's powers through physical touch. He's in charge of Pinehearst, which recruits people with abilities for nefarious purposes. His wife, Angela (formerly Angela Shaw) who can see the future through dreams, tries to stop him. She also has mysterious connections and is a very strong woman, even without her powers. Angela's long-lost sister, Alice Shaw, can ''control the weather'' including lightning and summoning floods. She's a bit crazy, however. Angela and Arthur, have two sons, Peter and Nathan. Peter has "power mimicry" and can copy other people's powers, with various levels of effectiveness throughout the series. He eventually helps save New York from getting blown up by a man with nuclear powers. His future self comes back to the past and shoots his brother, Nathan. His future self has shapeshifting powers and a badass scar. Nathan Petrelli, his brother, is an ambitious anti-hero senator with the power of flight. He is an intense hypocrite and goes on to head a government operation to capture people with abilities because they're "dangerous" (but grants immunity from this operation to his daughter, Claire, and mother, Angela, who both have abilities). Nathan's biological daughter, Claire, has regenerative powers and helps her uncle, Peter, save the world. She's a cheerleader and is incredibly tenacious. Claire's biological mother, Meredith Gordon, has pyrokinesis, and [[spoiler: eventually sacrifices herself to save Claire, Nathan, and Angela from Sylar]]. Claire's adoptive father, Noah Bennet, is a BadassNormal man who works for several companies and later, the government, when he helps Claire's other father, Nathan, hunt people with abilities. Flint is Meredith's brother, making him Claire's uncle. She has a really screwed up family [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor once she starts digging into it.]] This family tree looked like it was going to get even crazier when Angela and Arthur told Sylar that he was their son. That turned out to be a lie.

He's in charge of Pinehearst, which recruits people with abilities for nefarious purposes. His wife, Angela (formerly Angela Shaw) who can see the future through dreams, tries to stop him. She also has mysterious connections and is a very strong woman, even without her powers. Angela's long-lost sister, Alice Shaw, can ''control the weather'' including lightning and summoning floods. She's a bit crazy, however. Angela and Arthur, have two sons, Peter and Nathan. Peter has "power mimicry" and can copy other people's powers, with various levels of effectiveness throughout the series. He eventually helps save New York from getting blown up by a man with nuclear powers. His future self comes back to the past and shoots his brother, Nathan. His future self has shapeshifting powers and a badass scar. Nathan Petrelli, his brother, is an ambitious anti-hero senator with the power of flight. He is an intense hypocrite and goes on to head a government operation to capture with the aim of capturing people with abilities because they're "dangerous" (but grants immunity from this operation to his daughter, Claire, and mother, Angela, who both have abilities). Nathan's biological daughter, Claire, has regenerative powers and helps her uncle, Peter, save the world. She's a cheerleader and is incredibly tenacious. Claire's biological mother, Meredith Gordon, has pyrokinesis, and [[spoiler: eventually sacrifices herself to save Claire, Nathan, and Angela from Sylar]]. Claire's adoptive father, Noah Bennet, is a BadassNormal man who works for several companies and later, the government, when he helps Claire's other father, Nathan, hunt people with abilities. Flint is Meredith's brother, making him Claire's uncle. She has a really screwed up family [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor once she starts digging into it.]] This family tree looked like it was going to get even crazier when Angela and Arthur told Sylar that he was their son. That turned out to be a lie.

* Most humans aware of cryptids in the Literature/InCryptid series form these. The Healy/Price/Harrington family and the De Lucas are merely two of the most prominent (the latter now being [[spoiler:extinct except for its final son, Dominic, who married Verity Price and took her name]]).

But then there is the Badass Family. Awesomeness seems to be either [[LamarckWasRight inherited]], [[TrainingFromHell instilled at an early age]], or both. There is at least one WallOfWeapons somewhere in the household. Nearly every member of the family could kick ungodly amounts of ass. They may be {{Super Hero}}es or {{Badass Normal}}s in a SuperFamilyTeam. Even the cute little 5-year-old child could do things that would net most professional soldiers [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome a Medal Of Honor or similar medal]]--and s/he does this kind of stuff ''daily''. But the real magic of this family? Their indestructibility as a team. As strong as any member may be individually, when fighting together, their strengths balance their weaknesses and they support each other to the bitter end - [[CasualDangerDialog and meanwhile will remind each other to pick up the groceries.]]

On account of their (usually) unspoken reliance on ThePowerOfLove, the Badass Family tends to be good guys, though maybe more [[ChaoticGood Chaotic]] than {{Lawful|Good}}. The matriarch is likely to be an ActionMom. Even if she's not, she'll surely be a MamaBear. Any kids they might have will be in distinct age groups - only [[GooGooGodlike one baby,]] or [[AnnoyingYoungerSibling one "kid"]], or one [[EmoTeen teenager]], unless there's a twin, in which case [[WonderTwinPowers watch out]]. Harming the children of a Badass Family is generally a ''VERY'' [[PapaWolf bad]] [[MamaBear idea]].

** The royal family of Dressrosa. There's King Riku, who was strong enough to go undercover in Doflamingo's GladiatorGames. His younger daughter Viola, who served as an assassin for ten years. His son-in-law Kyros, who during his time as a gladiator won ''3000'' battles in a row (and he was only hit ''once''). Finally, there's his granddaughter Rebecca, who isn't exactly strong, but is a master of DeadlyDodging.
