* 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. 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.

* ''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.

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

* 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.

* The Tracy family in ''Series/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).

* 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.

** 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''.

* 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.
