Added DiffLines:

* ''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.

** The [[TheHunter CCG]] is headed by the [[BadassFamily Washuu Clan]]. They started out as a clan of professional Ghoul Hunters in FeudalJapan, prior to the Emperor giving them authority and making them a government agency. Since then, they have commanded the CCG for more than a century with ThreeSuccessfulGenerations representing the current Chairman, Chief, and one of the Division Commanders. While considered very good at what they do, the Washuu are noted for [[WeHaveReserves treating human lives]] like numbers and readily throwing away their forces for victory. There are hints of a power struggle brewing, with Chief Yoshitoki Washuu noted as an unusually [[TokenGoodTeammate kind]] superior while his son, Division II Commander Matsuri Washuu, is so [[TokenEvilTeammate ruthless]] that many in the organization are afraid of what could happen should he take over the Washuu Clan and CCG.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Each of the noble houses of Westeros, particularly the Great Houses, each with its own tangled history, its own sigils and mottoes, and its own genetic traits. House Targaryen is full of beautiful mad geniuses, the Starks are stoic and honourable, the Lannisters are vain rich blonds, and the Tyrells are obliging but grasping. Some of these traits are strongly influenced by the current head of the family, while others go back many generations.

* The Sacketts, a fictional clan from the backwoods of Tennesse. They all seem to be {{badass}}es too.

* In the ''Literature/EndersGame'' prequel ''Earth Unaware'' most free AsteroidMiners work as extended families. Ranging from a few dozen aboard the ''El Cavador'' to the Italians' hundreds of members and four ships. They periodically trade members to avoid endogamy.

* ''VideoGame/RomeTotalWar'': TheRomanEmpire (or, more properly, UsefulNotes/TheRomanRepublic) in this RealTimeStrategy game consists of three main factions, the Julii, Brutii, and Scipii, each one based around a single influential clan (there's also a fourth faction, the Senate, but that one isn't relevant to this trope).

* Technically, the seventeen Houses in Steven Brust's ''{{Dragaera}}'' books are all descended from seventeen individuals. Well, sort of. They can trace the genetics, though, back to the original founders.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{The 100}}'': The Grounders are divided into 12 Clans, though given their size and the amount of ethnic diversity they display, "tribe" is probably the more accurate term.
