* Many ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' characters belong to clans, the more notable ones having their own symbol. Some clans have special abilities exclusive to them [[InTheBlood genetically]] (called "Kekkei Genkai" or "Bloodline Limit"), while others pass down secret clan techniques, and others are just traditions (symbiotic relationships with animals and spirits). With the exception of Uchiha, whose Hat is copying people ([[ComboPlatterPowers and breathing fire]]), we hardly ever see any member of these clans using anything but their clan techniques. For example, the page image is of the Hyuga clan, who are famed for their Byakugan eyes which have three-hundred-fifty-nine-degree telescopic x-ray vision.

Only a few recurring characters ''don't'' belong to a specialized clan, thus they are usually BadassNormal.

* ''WhateleyUniverse'': The incredibly wealthy, aristocratic, lese majeste oriented Goodkind family. If the Goodkinds didn't hate mutants with a passion, they might even be the good guys. Since the main characters are all mutants (including one kid who ''was'' a Goodkind and has been disowned after being kidnapped and tortured), the Goodkinds don't look so great.

* On Series/DoctorWho and to a greater extent its EU, this appears to be how Time Lord society is structured, as sets of Houses forming larger Chapters, sometimes referred to as Colleges or Castes. For example, [[OverlyLongName Romanadvoratrelundar]] is a member of House Heartshaven, which is part of the Prydon (sometimes called Prydonian) Chapter. Other Houses include Stillhaven, Lungbarrow (to which the Doctor belongs), Redlooms/Deeptree and the evocatively-named House of the Devouring Hounds (whose ranks included [[Recap/DoctorWhoS13E5TheBrainOfMorbius Morbius]]).

* In ''Roleplay/DragonBallAfterTheEnd'', Exile society is divided between two Clans: Vegeta and Goku, both ruled over by a Lord or Lady, and possessing their own internal culture. Each Clan is then divided between various Houses, all with their own internal structure and culture, each with a House Head. The Lord/Lady of a Clan and their immediate family belong to a House of the same name as a Clan, with the Lord/Lady acting as the House Head.
** Clan Vegeta is highly formalized, with a rigid structure of nobility and an intricate system of behaviour. The Lord or Lady reigns as an absolute monarch.
** Clan Goku is highly informal, with only minimal regard to nobility. The Lord or Lady acts primarily as a mediator, guide and if necessary, judge.

* The Earps of the American Old West might count. Many members were renowned lawmen in various positions. No fewer than three Earps (including the most famous of the family, Wyatt Earp) were in prominent local positions at Tombstone, Arizona at the time of the O.K. Corral incident.

* ''Anime/HighSchoolStarMusical'': Itsuki Otori and Tsubasa Hiiragi [[spoiler: are actually twin brothers]] - the Otori family is a branch of the Hiiragi family. [[spoiler: But the main family needed an heir, so they adopted Tsubasa, and the two lived separately from then on, not allowed to acknowledge the time they spent together as children, or their relationship.]]
* ''Anime/{{K}}'':
** (Not to be confused with what the series calls followers of the [[SuperEmpowering Seven Kings]])
** The Gold King, Daikaku Kokujouji, comes from a very powerful one - a clan of UsefulNotes/{{Onmyodo}} practitioners, at that. His OldRetainer, the Usagi who [[spoiler: gives Daikaku's possessions to the Silver Clan]] in season 2, came from a branch of the family and when he was young, he was sent to spy on Daikaku, but when he saw what Daikaku was doing with the Slates, he was amazed, and became Daikaku's [[UndyingLoyalty most loyal follower]]. (So he is a member of Daikaku's "clan" in both senses).
** It is implied that Saruhiko Fushimi and Izumo Kusanagi are both from branches of families like this, though it has not impacted the story yet. In ''Lost Small World'', Saruhiko's cousin Aya tells Misaki how Saruhiko's father, Niki Fushimi, is something of an outcast in the family.

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'': The Dunmer (Dark Elf) Great Houses are a combination of blood relations and adopted members. Each House has its own specialty: House Telvanni is led by ancient wizards, House Hlaalu is for merchants and thieves and House Redoran is the warrior house. Two other Houses are mentioned by not (properly) seen, due to not having a Vvardenfell presence: House Indoril (tightly bound up with the Temple, so effectively a house for rulers, administrators and priests) and House Dres (traditionalist slavers). The BigBad of the game is the titular head of House Dagoth, which had been forcibly dissolved.
