[[folder:TabletopGames]] * 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.

** In the BigFinish extended universe, the Doctor's relatives, Brax, Susan and Alex,[[spoiler: respectively his brother, granddaughter and great-grandson]] have a habit of being reckless, independent, highly intelligent, and self-sacrificial. [[spoiler:The latter costs poor Alex his life when he is only twenty years old.]] Special mention goes to Brax for also having a tendency to lie to his friends to keep them safe. Sound familiar?

* [[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney 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)]].

* The Kunos in ''RanmaOneHalf'' are all totally bonkers. In the manga (the story wasn't converted to the anime), it's revealed that having NoSenseOfDirection is something that runs in Ryoga's family -- his mother and father are just as bad as he is. Some fans have even [[PoisonOakEpilepticTrees theorized]] that [[{{Squick}} his parents are brother and sister]] due to this. * [[UminekoNoNakuKoroNi The Ushiromiyas]]. Kinzo is [[MadLove dangerously insane]], Eva is a RichBitch who [[spoiler:goes totally AxCrazy in one arc]], Rosa is an [[AbusiveParents abusive]] single mother, and her daughter Maria is an extremely CreepyChild who may give her grandpa a run for the money in the "crazy" department. [[spoiler:Natsuhi]] is downright delusional, [[spoiler:and she ''married'' into the family]]. The rest are also neurotic, just less... violently so. Oh, and [[spoiler:at least six]] of Kinzo's descendants have been seen to use magic, [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane if you take the Anti-Mystery perspective]]. It's more than [[BigScrewedUpFamily dysfunctionality]] and CuteLittleFangs that runs in this family.
