* ''WesternAnimation/DespicableMe2'': By the end of the movie, [[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]]!

* Disney's ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' franchise has the royal family -- The titular protagonist, Ariel, is a tough, determined mermaid whose not afraid to attack a sea witch who now wields the triton to save her love interest. Speaking of love interest, Eric (Ariel's love interest/husband) is a skilled mariner who ''killed'' the same sea witch with a boat. Ariel's father, Triton, is the true wielder of the trident and is not afraid to use it to protect his loved one. Ariel's older sisters may not have a lot of action-packed moments, but the TV series shows that when danger comes, anyone of them is prepared themselves and others. The sequel movie ''Disney/TheLittleMermaidIIReturnToTheSea'' adds Ariel and Eric's daughter, Melody, who is as much as a BadassPrincess like her mother. And the prequel ''finally'' introduced Ariel's mother, Athena, who went MamaBear for one of her children to protect the child from dangerous pirates.

** 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

* The Tracy family in ''Thunderbirds'' certainly qualify - flying the fastest planes and rockets in the world to save lives and fight villains (with help from a few extended family members).

* 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 [=MacArthur=] 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.

Theodore Roosevelt III was a Navy pilot, pilot and a Brigadier General who landed with his troops at Normandy at Utah beach who famously said "We’ll start the war from right here!" and turned a confused landing into a successful one, ''while'' fighting with his own heart condition and arthritis, ultimately earning him a Medal of Honor.

* ''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.

Creator/GamesWorkshop games:
** Ostlander Mercenary warbands from ''TabletopGame/{{Mordheim}}'' are made up of an entire extended family that has left their home village to make their fortune in the City of the Damned. Hardy and self-sufficient, these Ostlanders are talented hunters who enjoy a good drunken brawl and possess an intense hatred of Chaos.

* The Aesir, as befitting a warrior race of immortals worshiped by the goddamn VIKINGS define badass. Odin, Allfather, the Allwise and supreme king of all Asgardians has fathered and or adopted numerous children who definitely qualify as experts in asskickerey: Loki, Balder, and Hermod, with the primary example being his firstborn son Thor, God of Thunder. God of War, wielder of Mjolnir and Undisputed Ruler for Life of the Kingdom of YOU'RE FUCKED.
