* In ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman'', Joker's {{Leitmotif}} is an eerie tune played on a distorted circusy-sounding organ. In some parts, it even sounds a bit like Creator/JohannSebastianBach's Toccata and Fugue in D Minor!

Added DiffLines:

* The ''Twisted Circus'' slot machine. The circus is less scary looking than you'd expect but the slowed down version of "Entry of the Gladiators" that plays throughout the game has a creepy sound.

* ''VideoGame/LuigisMansionDarkMoon'': [[https://youtu.be/AiGqRdMhY0M The music]] used in the level "Ambush Maneuver" is a creepy calliope waltz befitting the toy train set where the level takes place.

* "Waltz to the Death", by Creator/DannyElfman, is SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker's {{Leitmotif}} in Creator/TimBurton's ''Film/{{Batman}}''. The theme actually sounds more like something from the 19th century (think Tchaikovsky's ''Nutcracker Suite''), but it's played on rather loud horns that remind one of a circus band; and while it's not very creepy in itself, the two scenes during which it's played certainly are (the Joker gleefully shooting a man several times and the Joker forcing the film's DamselInDistress to dance with him - at gunpoint - atop Gotham City's cathedral).

** The tune of [[SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker Joker's Song]] is built on a carnival/circus theme, befitting the MonsterClown that's singing it.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jiWertOFONk&feature=related The Kingdom Of Endless Dreams]] from ''[[VideoGame/DeathSmiles Deathsmiles IIX]]''. It's the Extra Field theme, the most terrifying Christmas carnival ever.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/SamAndMaxHitTheRoad'', some of the carnival music has elements of this trope. [[https://youtu.be/yMjwdddpkzg Carnival of the Odd]] highlights how the carnival is a bit of a CrappyCarnival while still remaining somewhat pleasant, and [[https://youtu.be/t5n-oKOQOkE Hall of Oddities]] sets the mood for the carnival's FreakShow.

** "Circus Monster" by Luka, which features the slowed-down variety. The song itself is actually rather sad, and the circus music adds to that effect

* ''Series/ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents2017'': In one scene of "The Wide Window: Part 2", as the Baudelaires, Mr. Poe, and a disguised Count Olaf are heading to a KitschyThemedRestaurant called "The Anxious Clown" so Olaf can trick Poe into handing the children into his care over brunch. As they drive to the restaurant, the camera lingers on a sign advertising it, with a picture of a SadClown, as creepy circus music plays in the background.
