* 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.

* 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.

** 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''.

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.doing really helpful stuff on the sidelines (even if he's kind of [[DisappearedDad vanished]]).



* ''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, or [[OneManArmy a horde of zombies]], or three bald eagles (while hanging from an electric tower), or [[spoiler:[[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu an interdimentional demon]]]] (not to mention scale a construction frame 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 nightmare dimensions for ''thirty years'']].
** The fact that the Pines are all [[spoiler:twins]] is keeping them together.

* 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).
