* ''VideoGame/MegaManPoweredUp'' lets you unlock RobotMaid Roll as a playable character. She fights using a broom, which you can swap out for even sillier melee weapons via DownloadableContent. Despite her silly weapons, the net results is that she plays very much like Zero does from ''VideoGame/MegamanX4'' onwards.

* [[NinjaMaid Shannon]] from ''[[VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi Ougon Musoukyouku]]'' is half this half BarrierWarrior, with her basic attacks involving attacking with cleaning implements, or doing things like [[{{Dojikko}} dropping a tea-set on the enemy after tripping]], and girly slaps and pushes, going so far as to even call [[TheBeastmaster seagulls]] to help her in combat. She's still as effective as any other character, and doesn't have any problem in going against [[WitchSpecies the witches]] or their [[{{Familiar}} familiars]].

This is not the JokeCharacter, as those are characters that are purposefully bad, nor is it the LethalJokeCharacter, which is when a Joke Character utimately has some hidden utility. This is simply a character that just looks and acts silly without being a bad character. They may look wacky, have cartoonish attacks, and a goofy voice, but otherwise they play as well as any other fighter.

** Unusually for a Shadaloo elite officer, F.A.N.G. has a goofy style of fighting that looks lanky and uncoordinated (accentuated by his oversized sleeves). His Critical Art even has him take to the skies and flap his arms like a bird to spread poison around himself.

** ''Street Fighter V'' makes Birdie into one, by giving him the ability to throw {{banana peel}}s and soda cans to attack, which is a sharp departure from the series' usual mix of realistic, but slightly embellished martial arts with mild supernatural elements.

* ''LeagueOfLegends'' has [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters over a hundred champions]], ranging from the serious BloodKnight or TheAtoner, to silly and goofy champions. Generally, the silliness is usually portrayed in their dialogue, with very few examples of 'silly' attacks.

** To a lesser extent, due to the nature of the game, many of the characters are fighting clowns. For example, we have a pieced-together catgirl that [[HurricaneOfPuns regularly sprouts cat puns]], [[note]]Ms. Fortune[[/note]] a sadistic nurse-ninja that uses medical tools as weapons, [[note]]Valentine[[/note]] A circus acrobat with gigantic muscular arms in her hat, [[note]]Cerebella[[/]] and a large man in a trenchcoat that beats his opponents with various band instruments. (including a fully playable trumpet.)[[note]]Big Band[[/note]]
