** In sharp contrast to the Starks and the Baratheons, the Lannisters have several siblings, relatives with cousins and nephews aplenty, and multiple lines to inherit and keep their land and titles. However, Tywin Lannister is obsessed with ensuring the main Lannister line is represented by him and remains at the top of the succession ladder.

* Productions of ''Theatre/ThePiratesOfPenzance'' will often do this with Major-General Stanley's daughters, as it's the only chance to have a female chorus in the operetta. The script calls for at least four but how many appear aside from this number is up to the director.

** It's implied in the first book that having large families may be something of a Weasley tradition. Draco Malfoy notes that his father told him that all Weasleys have red hair "and more children than they can afford." WordOfGod says Arthur only has two siblings, though it's unknown how many Weasley cousins there are. (Though apparently enough that when it's not safe for Harry to attend Bill and Fleur's wedding openly as himself, he is able to use Polyjuice Potion to take on the appearance of a redheaded Muggle boy from the local village and pass himself off as as a Weasley cousin without any difficulty.) When the seven siblings start their own families, though, none have more than three children.

* While many of the families in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' are relatively large, Lord Frey's immediate descendents -- the ones still living in his castle, at least -- are described as such: "Twenty[-one] living sons, thirty-six grandsons, nineteen great-grandsons, and numerous daughters, granddaughters, bastards, and grandbastards." Note that, despite wanting to get rid of them by marrying them off when he can, he still plans on having more.
** And Craster, who is first introduced in ''Literature/AClashOfKings'', has nineteen daughters... [[ParentalIncest who are also]] [[{{Squick}} his wives]]. He leaves any male children they might have to the White Walkers.
** King Aegon IV Targaryen had two trueborn children, at least thirteen bastards from his mistresses (including a son with his [[KissingCousins cousin]] Princess Daena Targaryen; the boy would end up causing [[{{Understatement}} some trouble]] later on), and presumably dozens more he doesn't know (or care) about from all of the other ladies, whores, and peasant women he's slept with.

* The long term implications of this set the scene for Creator/MercedesLackey's ''Dozen Daughters'' series. The royal family of a miniscule kingdom (maps of the region made in other countries often forget to acknowledge that they're even ''there'') ends up having 12 daughters before [[HeirClubForMen finally producing an actual heir]], at which point they realize that they can't afford twelve royal dowries. As a result, the princesses are all given first rate educations in whatever craft they desire until they turn eighteen, at which point they are all expected to leave the kingdom and seek their own fortune.

* ''Literature/WarriorCats'': Ferncloud and Dustpelt have 7 children. Every kit in Daisy's first litter has at least 5 siblings, counting half siblings. Based on him referring to his "brothers and sister" and knowing about his other half-siblings, Firestar must have at least 6 siblings, more if you count the other time he said "brothers and sisters". Bramblestar has 4 named siblings, but if you count the rest of Goldenflower's litter that disappeared after the first book the number shoots up higher.
* In the ''Literature/KateShugak'' mysteries, Father Smith is the proud proprietor of a forty acre homestead in the Park, along with a wife and seventeen children, all of whom live at home.

* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philippe_I,_Duke_of_Orleans Philippe Ier, duc d'Orléans]], only sibling of UsefulNotes/LouisXIV, puts up a rather less impressive seven children from two marriages (including one stillborn and two that died in childhood), but what makes this impressive is (1) Massive Numbered Cousins--his surviving children, save one, had lots of kids, who went on to marry most of the Catholic royalty of the Continent, leading historians to call him "the grandfather of Europe" and (2) the fact that he was gay, and everyone knew he was gay, but he still got over his probable distaste for it and actually managed to become "the grandfather of Europe." (As a royal, marrying and having children was required, but rather than simply do the minimum he could have gotten away with--having one or two children and not remarrying after his first wife died--he did his full duty and then some.)

* If you extend this trope to siblings by adoption, if someone was to count up all the "Batkids" you'd realize that Franchise/{{Batman}} has quite a few "kids." In Post-Crisis, Pre-ComicBook/New52 continuity, Batman has three adopted sons (Dick, Jason, and Tim), one adopted daughter (Cassandra) and one biological son (Damian). If you count alternate universes, Bruce also has a biological daughter, Helena, who predates all of the above except for Dick. If you count spin-offs, Bruce also two biological sons via genetic theft, Terry and Matt [=McGinnis=]. If you count girls he's developed a parental relationship with but is not biologically or legally related to, there's Barbara Gordon, Stephanie Brown, and Harper Row. You can also count Dick Grayson's alternate universe biological daughter, Mar'i Grayson, or Barbara Gordon's protege, Charlotte Gage-Radcliffe, or Batwoman's niece, Bette/Betty Kane, or auxiliary Batfam vigilantes like Helena Bertinelli, Jean-Paul Valley, David Zavimbe, Luke Fox, Kate Kane... basically, you can go all day with this game.
