* In ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' Spark, which might be better known as ScienceRelatedMemeticDisorder, tends to run in families. It's probably the most apparent in Heterodynes, a house full of powerful Sparks and vicious warlords, who terrorized Europa for centuries.

* [[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightTrilogy 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 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.
