Can we add the Kardashian family tree? I think it's tangled enough to make your head hurt a bit. I'll start: Rob Kardashian's daughter Dream shares a mom (Blac Chyna) with King Cairo, whose dad (Tyga) is currently dating Kylie Jenner (Rob Kardashian's half-sister). Meanwhile, you have Kim Kardashian West and her husband Kanye, whose ex-girlfriend Amber Rose had a son Sebastian with Wiz Khalifa; the Wests have two kids, daughter North and son Saint.

At the time of this typing, Kylie Jenner and Tyga are no longer together. Instead, she's currently dating Travis Scott and has even had a daughter with him named Stormi. (This trope could still apply, though, if Stormi were to get together with King Cairo.)

As for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, they now have a third child together, a daughter named Chicago, whom they had through a surrogate. I forgot to mention earlier that this trope could also apply if North and Sebastian were to become a couple since their parents used to date each other.

Hey there. Um, would the Griffin family tree from Family Guy possibly count as this? I mean, with as many brothers, sisters, twins, brosters, and even possible ancestors of Peter's that have been introduced over the course of the show, surely it's got to be somewhat tangled somewhere down the line. We're not even getting into the kids Stewie had with Brian in "Stewie is Enceinte" (who themselves are half-siblings of Brian's son Dylan), his half-brother Bertram (and God knows how many other half-siblings he might have out there), his full siblings besides Meg and Chris, or his ancestor Leonardo Da Vinci. I know continuity on that show tends to be rather loose in those regards, but you gotta wonder sometimes.

It should be well noted that the Theory Evolution states that every single organism on this planet originated originated from one common ancestor. That is to say, ALL LIFE on Earth is in one SUPREMELY TANGLED family tree.

Eh, not inherently. It's a really really big tree, but being big alone does not make it tangled; the tangling comes from various forms of incest, remarriage, missing relatives, and so on.

Of course, organisms do do that so it is still tangled, but a tree without any tangles is conceivable.

  • It can be argued that the Summers family reaches even into the DC Universe. Robin III (Tim Drake) dated Jubilee, who can be considered to be Storm's vampire-niece (Storm was bitten by Dracula but changed back, while Jubilee is currently a vampire turned by Dracula's son Xarus). Considering Storm's previous relationship with Forge, and that guy's relationship with Mystique, whose adopted daughter Rogue hooks up with Gambit, who is Cyclops's half-clone according to X-Men: the End... and that is the sound of your head asploding.

Sort of a bit confused about the beginning part. Does "dating" really count as part of a family tree?

How is Ariella Kent "squicky"? The Supergirl that's her mother is Linda Danvers, who isn't related in any way to Superman. Not even the "Matrix" component of Supergirl is related to Superman, she just has powers based on his.

If Kara Zor-El and Kal El had a kid, that'd be squicky (and is addressed in the infamous "Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenix" essay), but Linda Danvers had no problem marrying Superman other than the identity deception.

Perhaps the phrase should be removed from the main article, that's all I'm saying. I want some consensus before it's done.

While I'm not familiar with the comics in questions, from reading the example, it's clear that the use of "squick" in the example is natter. I'm cutting it.

  • Let's not forget (or maybe we should) when superman split into two separate characters (Superman Blue and Superman Red) one of whom knocked up Maxima with a child that's never mentioned again. They then re-fused into "Electrosuperman" or something before being returned to his original state, minus his mullet.

I have the Red/Blue comics (yes, I know...) and the reason that never gets mentioned again is because it didn't happen. Both Supermen rebuff Maxi the way they always do, she gets carted off to S.T.A.R. Labs swearing revenge, and that's the last we see of her until the Crisis Crossover Our Worlds At War.

Prehaps the descendants of the Williams girls from 1632 belong on here?

How is "Tangled Fmaily Tree" a better name than "Summers Family Tree"? It's much blander and a lot less fun...

Becuase not everyone is familiar with X-Men. I orginally thought the title reffered to Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Tangled simply means convoluted which is far more appropriate.
