* [[WesternAnimation/GravityFalls Pretty much the entire Pines family]] is rather careless about safety when there's adventure in play. Mabel runs around with a grappling hook and an axe, Dipper can just wander off into the woods when Grunkle Stan is not looking, Stan [[spoiler:has made counterfeit money]] and thinks bears should drive, and finally [[spoiler:Ford thinks giving weapons to children is valid, which can kind of be justified seeing he [[FishOutOfTemporalWater hasn't been in this dimension for a very long time]]]].

* [[VisualNovel/AceAttorney The von Karma family.]] It's subtle, but if you pay attention, Franziska von Karma from the second game onward shares the same poses for her sprites as her father Manfred from the first game. Less subtly, both are prosecutors with obsessions for absolute perfection [[spoiler:(and although Franziska eventually gets over it, she does maintain the no-nonsense sense of authority that had come with it)]].

** Count Piotr, the guy Cordelia was talking to and the 10th Count Vorkosigan, was the first to actually accomplish that last one: dying in bed at an advanced age. Miles Vorkosigan (whom his mother explicitly does not think is sane) has also got a lot of other crazy people in his family tree, especially from the Vorrutyer and Vorbarra branches of the family.

* The d'Ambrevilles of Glantri in the {{Mystara}} D&D setting are a large and fractious family of wealthy, self-indulgent, scheming and often magically-gifted weirdos. They were even stranger in the adventure (Chateau d'Ambreville) that introduced them, having been trapped in a bizarre PocketDimension for years; many had turned single rooms or suites within their cursed mansion into their own private gardens/laboratories/banquets/whatever, and had been physically transformed by curses to have the heads of animals.
