** * ''[[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/164355/temporal-visitor Temporal Visitor]]'' depicts Celestia as having been born during a tribal period of pony history. She was originally named Sun the Honourable of Clan Flower (or "Sun Flower"/"Grian Flùr" for short).


* Most if not all of Kaguya's issues in ''Manga/KaguyaSamaLoveIsWar'' stem from her growing up as a member of the illustrious Shinomiya family. At least one branch family is also seen during the course of the series, and there is implied to be some bad blood between them given all the PassiveAggressiveCombat that Kaguya ingages in with [[spoiler:Maki]] (though that might be more reflective of [[TooMuchAlike their personal situation]] rather than the family as a whole).

* ''RomeoAndJuliet'': The Montague clan versus the Capulet clan. There is a decades-long feud, ending with the last legitimate heirs all dying.\\
\\
There's also a handful of vague implications that the Prince of Verona is himself the head of a third clan, which is also apparently decimated by the feud (Mercutio, his nephew and presumptive heir since no royal children are mentioned, dies moments before his own killer, the youngest male Capulet, Tybalt, and the prince's cousin Count Paris is killed by Romeo Montague only a little while before the deaths of Romeo and Juliet). In the end, the prince shares in the Montagues' and Capulets' grief by commenting that he has also lost "a brace of kinsmen".

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/TheHanSoloTrilogy'': Hutt society is divided into these, which also double as crime families.


* Many ''Franchise/{{Naruto}}'' characters belong to shinobi 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"), others pass down secret clan techniques or specialize in specific skills, and the rest just seem to be extended families whose members all happen to be ninjas. With the exception of the Uchiha (whose Hat is copying people [[ComboPlatterPowers and breathing fire]]) and the Senju (whose Hat is [[MasterOfAll being good at multiple techniques]]), we hardly ever see any member of these clans using anything but their clan techniques. The page image is of the Hyuga clan, who are famed for their skill at close-ranged combat and their Byakugan eyes which have three-hundred-fifty-nine-degree telescopic x-ray vision.

Added DiffLines:

* [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Klingon]] culture in ''Franchise/StarTrek'' is largely based around clan-like houses, many of which are feuding with at least one other house. It's often stated that because of this, the Klingon Empire is typically on the verge of fragmenting.


* ''{{Shameless}}'': Has the Maguires, described as "a minor crime dynasty stretching back to the potato famine".
* 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]]).

* Arabs in Israel, especially Bedouins, often associate with clans or tribes. Israel often has issues with adjusting its modern state customs to their clan customs, especially when it comes to clan leaders being seen as having a greater authority than the state. (How justified this sentiment is [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment will not be discussed here]].) Some politicians have used this in their favour, though, striking deals with clan leaders for votes. This also tends to be a troublesome issue, as some clans get into feuds.

* Truth be told, Arab societies in many countries have a habit of behaving as "clans." For instance, the "tribes" everyone talks about holding oh-so-much authority in UsefulNotes/{{Iraq}} are really more like clans--large, patrilineally-defined extended family groups that serve as one touchstone of identity (among several), with the clan "chief" serving as a living symbol of its unity. (If this sounds like the Scottish clan system...it kind of is. Truth be told, Iraq is sometimes seen as the Scotland of the Fertile Crescent or even of the Arab world more generally, with a reputation for honor-related violence, clannishness, impenetrable accents, and bad food--but also beautiful music and poetry and serious scholarship and love of literature (the old saying in the Arab world is that Egypt writes, Lebanon publishes, and Iraq reads).) The ascent of the Iraqi "tribes" in recent years is largely attributable to the fall of UsefulNotes/SaddamHussein and his centralized regime; with a unified Iraqi identity being damaged by the chaos of the post-Saddam period, Iraqis have increasingly turned to their tribes for support and identification where before many Iraqis, especially urban ones, wouldn't have given much thought to their tribe/clan.

Added DiffLines:

** Roman gentes were so large that they had branches called "stirpes" with their own surnames (cognomina). For instance, Caesar was originally a stirpes of the Julii, though it gradually evolved into a title after Gaius UsefulNotes/JuliusCaesar transformed the Republic into a de facto monarchy.

Added DiffLines:

** In Merchant Republics the player is the head of a "Patrician house" of merchants, who compete with their city's other houses to be elected Doge.
** Nomadic rulers create vassals by splitting their horde into subordinate clans. The "tribe" version of the trope.
** The Holy Fury DLC adds "bloodlines" with specific game effects for particular families.


* The AlternateTailSeries has Clan Garten, an organization of researchers that appears in part 2, with the main family all being related. Most seem to use at least one form of letter magic, the grunts especially being fond of Solid Script and Rune Magic. They also use [[ClockworkCreature Automatons,]] animal based machines sent out to fight. [[spoiler: Joseph Mcgarden, Levy's grandfather, was once a member of this clan]].

* In ''Literature/TailchasersSong'', it's mentioned that cats form clans. Tailchaser is a part of the Meeting Wall Clan.

* In ''Literature/TailchasersSong'', it's mentioned that cats form clans. refer to colonies/clowders as "clans". Tailchaser is and Pouncequick are a part of the Meeting Wall Clan. Clan, while Roofshadow is of the Forest-Light Clan.
* ''Literature/TheWickedYears'': Clans are mentioned but not given much depth. For example, Shenshen is addressed as "Shenshen of the Minkos Clan" and Glinda is "of the Arduenna Clan on [her] mother's side". However, Clan name doesn't translate to surname, as ''Literature/SonOfAWitch'' lists Glinda's surname as "Upland", which is [[{{Retcanon}} taken from]] [[Theatre/{{Wicked}} the musical]] (the "Upper Uplands" is the area Glinda hails from).
