On account of their (usually) unspoken reliance on ThePowerOfLove, the Badass Family tends to be good guys, though maybe more {{Chaotic|Good}} than {{Lawful|Good}}. The matriarch is likely to be an ActionMom. Even if she's not, she'll surely be a MamaBear. Any kids they might have will be in distinct age groups--only [[GooGooGodlike one baby,]] or [[AnnoyingYoungerSibling one "kid"]], or one [[EmoTeen teenager]], unless there's a twin, in which case [[WonderTwinPowers watch out]]. Harming the children of a Badass Family is generally a ''very'' [[PapaWolf bad]] [[MamaBear idea]].

* The O'Brien family in ''AudioPlay/TheNewAlbionRadioHour'', all of whom play a pivotal role in ending New Albion's generations-long civil war. John joined the city government's super soldier program after [[CrusadingWidower losing his wife]] to BombThrowingAnarchists, and was the only one to survive the process that turned him into an unstoppable rebel-killing {{cyborg}}. His sister Jacqueline's girlfriend was taken away and lobotomized when the government became increasingly authoritarian, leading Jackie to take over the main resistance group. John's daughter Constance, after her mother died and her father left, ended up becoming a very skilled (if naive) thief who stole [[JustLikeRobinHood on behalf of women who had been victimized by New Albion's unfair divorce laws]]. Each is badass on their own, but when they band together over the course of the album, they end up saving the city.

Two grand-daughters, one adoptive, are also Assassins. Any member of the family is guaranteed to give you a hard fight if you try to spoil their day. Johanna's daughters are respectively a witch, [[{{Tykebomb}} a trainee Assassin]], and a youngest who combines aspects of both in a deceptively mild package. The sons of both family lines can be almost as lethal, too.

* Disney's ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' franchise has the royal family -- The titular protagonist, Ariel, is a tough, determined mermaid whose not afraid to attack a sea witch who now wields the triton to save her love interest. Speaking of love interest, Eric (Ariel's love interest/husband) is a skilled mariner who ''killed'' the same sea witch with a boat. Ariel's father, Triton, is the true wielder of the trident and is not afraid to use it to protect his loved one. Ariel's older sisters may not have a lot of action-packed moments, but the TV series shows that when danger comes, anyone of them is prepared themselves and others. The sequel movie ''Disney/TheLittleMermaidIIReturnToTheSea'' adds Ariel and Eric's daughter, Melody, who is as much as a hero as her mother. And the prequel ''finally'' introduced Ariel's mother, Athena, who went MamaBear for one of her children to protect the child from dangerous pirates.
