The world of anime has always stressed upon the value of family. Some of these anime families may not be your ideal projection of one, but they are still forces to be reckoned with.
The Yato Clan – Gintama
The Yato Clan is a family of powerful and deadly warriors with intense bloodlust and rage. They are a group of humanoid Amanto with vastly superior physical and mental attributes. each member of the Yato Clan has the individual power to level an army on his or her own. But it comes at a price. they tend to forget their goal and true intentions. The clan also used to follow a horrific practice of sons killing their fathers. This practice was abandoned until Kagura’s brother Kamui almost brought it back.
The Joestars – Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure
At its core, Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure is a glorified family drama. Many of the powerhouses within the series are inexplicably linked to the Joestar family. Any descendant of the family has bulging muscles and inhuman amounts of strength. But it’s their supernatural ability of Hamon that makes them invincible. Hamon is the ability to harness and manipulate one’s life force and give it form. It gives the wielder the power of creating Stands. This ability can grant a variety of paranormal feats including the power of telepathy and even stopping the flow of time.
The Ackermans – Attack On Titan
The Ackermans were the ones that were employed to protect the Eldian king in Attack on Titan. The once powerful family has since dwindled in numbers. But the few Ackerman members that remain show just how formidable they would have been in battle if they were in more numbers. Only three Ackermans have been seen in the show – Kenny, Levi, and Mikasa. Using nothing but their mere skills and their battle intelligence, they have taken down giants, literally. If Batman was in anime, he would surely be an Ackerman.
The Hanmas – Baki The Grappler
The Hanmas are a very dysfunctional family. There are only three of them and all of them hate each other. Yujiro Hanma is considered the world’s strongest human being. The impact force of his punch coming at full speed is compared to that of a nuclear impact. With his bare hands, Yujiro Hanma has taken down wild elephants and entire prides of lions. His two sons, Jack and Baki Hanma, are capable warriors who have pushed their bodies to extreme limits in their own ways. This is all in the pursuit of defeating Yujiro Hanma, whom both the brothers hate with all their heart.
The Elrics – Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
In the world of FMA: Brotherhood, there is alchemy instead of science that reigns supreme. Magic and science have given birth to a strange new field that can use mystical energies for various incredible feats. From controlling the forces of nature to creating objects out of literal nothingness, Alchemy is a powerful and deadly discipline. And Edward and Alphonse Elric, at their tender ages, were already considered geniuses of that field. Add to that the fact that their father is Hohenheim, an immortal with the power of countless souls powering him, you have got a family of sorcerers who can take down almost anyone.

The Kibutsuji Bloodline – Demon Slayer
Although not a family by definition, the demons we see in Demon Slayer are linked by blood. Each demon is spawned after the transfusion of Muzan Kibutsuji’s blood into a new host. Depending on the quantity of the blood transfused and the durability of the host body, each demon can have varying degrees of power. the most powerful demons spawned off of Muzan Kibutsuji’s blood form the Twelve Demon Moons. The Twelve Demon moons are the most powerful of all demons, possessing Godlike powers that rival that of the most powerful Demon Slayers.
The Uchihas – Naruto
The Uchihas were once the most feared and respected clans in the world of Naruto. Their power dwindled after the establishment of the Hidden Leaf village, marking the end of the Warring States Period. After Itachi Uchiha massacred the entire clan leaving Sasuke as the sole survivor, the Uchihas became a thing of the past. Their legendary Dojutsu – the Sharingan, has unrivaled powers. It can control space-time and even warp reality of need be. If only the Uchihas were given time to blossom, the history of the Naruto Universe would have been entirely different.
