** The Belladonna family are more than capable of taking care of business when things go straight to hell, as revealed in Volume 5. Just ask [[spoiler:the White Fang and the two brothers that Adam fielded to get rid of them]].

* The Earp brothers in ''Film/{{Tombstone}}''. Wyatt is already a legendary former lawman by the start of the film and Virgil and Morgan are quick to volunteer as new marshals after the previous one is murdered and the town is falling into lawlessness.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/ForumOfThrones'': Admittedly, it only consists of two members by the time the story is set, but both Durrandon's are noted for their fighting skills. This trope runs in the family, as the Storm Kings of House Durrandon are expected to be warrior kings and, save for some shameful exceptions, have lived up to these expectations.
** House Targaryen does not have to hide from House Durrandon in terms of badassery. Aegon, Visenya and Rhaenys are dragon riders and set to conquer an entire continent. Their half-brother Orys is one of the most skilled swordsmen in all Westeros and their cousin Raenna has been trained as a ProfessionalKiller to perfection.

* 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.

* An extended family example from ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'' and ''WesternAnimation/LiloAndStitchTheSeries''. 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).

* 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 {{Love Interest|s}} and eventual husband, gets in on this a few, mostly when he's being a PapaWolf for Nyx.

* 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.

** 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]].]]

* ''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]]!

** 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.

Hardy and self-sufficient, these Ostlanders are talented hunters who enjoy a good drunken brawl and possess an intense hatred of Chaos.
