** Several others have just plain weird movesets. Mr VideoGame/GameAndWatch fights by pulling out random equipment from his own games, pulling out things like turtles, flags, buckets, keys and other mundane things. [[VideoGame/WarioLand Wario]] is a CombatPragmatist who fights using a random assortment of wacky attacks and odd abilities, such as biting his opponent, [[GroinAttack punching them in the groin]] and ''[[{{Fartillery}} farting]]'' on them. Bowser Jr. fights in a literal clown car that's equipped with weapons like [[ThisIsADrill drills]], wrecking balls, a cannon, a ''fork'', and the clown face sticking its tongue out. And then there's Duck Hunt, a trio composed of the dog, a duck, and the unseen hunter from ''VideoGame/DuckHunt'' who use exploding tin cans and clay pigeon, can summon 8-bit cowboys from thin air to fire at their opponents, and whose [[LimitBreak Final Smash]] involves their opponents getting caught in the middle of an 8-bit shoot-out between cowboys and gangsters.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/BodyBlows'': This obscure fighting game series features one of these named Mike. This guy, in contrast to all the street brawlers, martial artists, robots, and aliens that make up the rosters of the games, is an unassuming business executive who can fight on equal footing all while giving out snarky quips during battle. He several [[BlowYouAway wind based attacks]] and even has a move involving him spinning around like WesternAnimation/{{Looney Tunes}}' Taz the Tasmanian Devil.

** ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'' brings SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}} into the mix. While his moves are only slightly unorthodox, the voice clips that accompany them are hilarious... [[MostAnnoyingSound the first hundred thousand times, anyway.]] ''[[UpdatedRerelease Ultimate]]'' brings back Frank West, and introduces [[Franchise/AceAttorney Phoenix Wright]], who doesn't do anything one would expect from a fighting game character. All of his attack animations are of lawyery stuff, like reading documents. Even his level 3 hyper is merely accusing the opponent of a crime. They still do damage, though, and in the case of the latter it's the single most damaging move ''in the game''.
* SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker in ''VideoGame/MortalKombatVsDCUniverse''. Literal example and a good match. He fights using all kind of [[ImprobableWeaponUser weird gadgetry]], like [[ExtendoBoxingGlove boxing-glove-in-a-box-es]] and {{BANG Flag Gun}}s.

* [[NinjaMaid Shannon]] from ''[[VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry Ougon Musoukyouku]]'' is half this and 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]].

* ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'' has tons of these, and then some. Debuting in 1, we have:Starting with the first game:



** Debuting in 2 we have the Roger Family [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg (and Alex)]], a genetically engineered BoxingKangaroo, his wife, [[ActionMom and her son]] and a [[EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs boxing utaharaptor]] respectively.
** In 3 we have Ling Xiaoyu, a childish GenkiGirl, a CuteBruiser, and a {{Cloudcuckoolander}}, and her pet, a panda [[ADogNamedDog called Panda]] who is a PaletteSwap of Kuma, with the only difference being the species (Kuma is a grizzly) and the fact that Panda is female. There is also [[DittoFighter Mokujin]], a living wooden training dummy who awakens when it senses a great evil and communicates through [[TheUnintelligible wood noises]], and Gon, a little orange dinosaur and [[GuestFighter the main character]] of a [[Manga/{{Gon}} manga of the same name]], who breaths fire [[{{Fartillery}} and uses farts as a weapon]]. Dr. Bosconovitch, meanwhile, is more of a LethalJokeCharacter.
** In ''4'' we don't get one, with the possible exception of Combot, a DittoFighter with a PunnyName who replaces Mokujin.
** And, finally, in 6 we get [[BigFun Bob]], a morbidly obese yet [[{{Acrofatic}} acrobatic]] [[{{Eagleland}} American]].

** Practically all of Dampierre's moveset places him squarely in this trope. Some attacks cause him to land face first into his "Poker Bluff" stance and a particular kick can put him into the "Fake Pain" stance - both at random. To the uninitiated, this makes him seem like a [[JokeCharacter throwaway character]] as it puts him in undesirable situations - until one finds out that's how he launches his [[LethalJokeCharacter most powerful attacks]]. If he wasn't silly enough, he has a throw were he spanks the opponent (regardless of gender), a Russian kick dance that causes him and the opponent to go up in the air, and moonwalks whenever you move back with him. And his OneHitKill involves him conning the opponent. In ''Soulcalibur V'', his OneHitKill is replaced with a super move where he gives his opponent a [[AssShove kancho]].
* Faust (formerly Dr. Baldhead) from ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'' is an eccentric, 9-foot tall doctor that fights with a giant scalpel and gives surprise rectal exams. He is otherwise a very technical and effective Faux-[[MightyGlacier Mighty Glacier.]] Also in the series are May, the resident [[GenkiGirl Genki Girl]] who fights with an anchor and [[TheBeastmaster various cute sea life,]] Bridget, a [[KillerYoYo Yo-yo-wielding]] young [[WholesomeCrossdresser crossdresser,]] Zappa, a man possessed by ghosts that fights with bizarre movements a la ''Movie/TheExorcist'', and Robo-Ky, a [[CaptainObvious Robotic version of Ky]] complete with missiles and rocket boosters. Despite all of these eccentricities, Guilty Gear is not known for having ''any'' joke characters.

* In ''VideoGame/TatsunokoVsCapcom'' there are ''four'' of these characters. One in the [[Creator/TatsunokoProduction Tatsunoko]] side, and three in the Creator/{{Capcom}} side. On the Tatsu side we have Anime/HakushonDaimao, a fat, comical [[GenieInABottle genie]] that comes from a comedy anime instead of an action/mecha one, [[NonStandardCharacterDesign looks much more cartoonier]] than his other fellow Tatsunoko characters, fights with [[ImprobableWeaponUser a hand on a stick]], and one of his supers involves [[{{Fartillery}} farting on the enemy]]. On the Creator/{{Capcom}} side we have VideoGame/ViewtifulJoe, [[VideoGame/MegaMan Roll]], a robot modeled after a little girl who fights with a [[ImprobableWeaponUser broom]], and [[VideoGame/DeadRising Frank West]], a photographer whose attacks involve baseball bats, supermarket carts, zombies, among many other things.
** ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'' brings SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}} into the mix. While his moves are only slightly unorthodox, the voice clips that accompany them are hilarious... [[MostAnnoyingSound the first hundred thousand times, anyway.]] As of ''[[UpdatedRerelease Ultimate]]'', we also have Frank West returning, and lastly [[Franchise/AceAttorney Phoenix Wright]], who doesn't do anything you would expect from a fighting game character.

** He keeps this up in ''VideoGame/InjusticeGodsAmongUs''. He has silly weapons and deadly weapons, and uses his deadly weapons in a silly manner. His super move even starts by throwing a pie at the opponent's face. Despite his MonsterClown tendencies, it seems to be a completely ordinary pie, with the super animation, if it lands, having him clean it off... with a crowbar. And then when it's completely off and the opponent sees clearly, THEN he pulls out his gun, but waits a second before they realize what it is before firing. Then he finishes with a point-blank bazooka that he pulled out of nowhere to the face that ends up sending him flying as well. And if he wins, [[BlackComedy he douses his opponent with gasoline and watches them burn, but not before making a pun on the word fire.]] His partner-in-crime-and-maybe-love-as-well Harley Quinn is arguably even sillier, with much more of an emphasis on silly weapons and pulls out a giant mallet with no problem for several moves. There's also much less BlackComedy to go with her, she's one of the few villains who doesn't kill the opponent and just opts for a kick in the face and telling them to "lighten up".

He has an attack where he [[VomitIndiscretionShot vomits on the enemy]], and a fatality where he, yup, you guessed it, ''[[OverlyLongGag farts]]'', only this time he [[FartsOnFire lights his fart]], which is so massive it engulfs the opponent in fire.

* Bonkers, of ''{{Clayfighter}}'', is both a literal clown, and is the wackiest character in the game. From Balloon Dogs to Teeter Tots, he'll make you laugh and cry.
* Peacock, from ''VideoGame/{{Skullgirls}}''. She's a malevolent, violent Toon with a wicked sense of humor. Her movements are funny and exaggerated and she drops jokes and references left and right, but her attacks are nothing to be sniffed at. Peacock utilizes a moveset chock-full of deadly keepaway toys designed to make the opponent pull their hair out in frustration.

Lana can also count with her Summoning Gate, as her attacks with that weapon are styled after IdolSinger dance moves. ''Hyrule Warriors'' is a game based on ''Franchise/DynastyWarriors'', so [[OneManArmy they can easily mow through hordes of enemies]] and even defeat all kinds of powerful villains without too much problem.

Despite her silly weapons, the net results is that she plays very much like Zero does from ''VideoGame/MegamanX4'' onwards.

Lana can also count with her Summoning Gate, as her attacks with that weapon are styled after IdolSinger dance moves. ''Hyrule Warriors'' is a game based on ''Franchise/DynastyWarriors'', so [[OneManArmy they can easily mow through hordes of enemies]] and even defeat all kinds of powerful villains without too much problem.
* ''VideoGame/MegaManPoweredUp'' lets you unlock RobotMaid Roll as a playable character. She fights using a broom, which you can swap be swaped 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.

A fighter who utilized comedy as a weapon. They may look wacky, utilize slapstick in their attacks, or have a goofy voice, but otherwise they play as well as any other fighter. This is not the JokeCharacter, as those are characters that are purposefully bad, nor is it the LethalJokeCharacter, which is when a Joke Character ultimately has some hidden utility. This is simply a character that just looks and acts silly without being a bad character.

** Several others have just plain weird movesets. Mr VideoGame/GameAndWatch fights by pulling out random equipment from his own games, pulling out things like turtles, flags, buckets, keys and other mundane things. [[VideoGame/WarioLand Wario]] fights using a random assortment of wacky attacks and odd abilities, such as chewing on the opponent, punching them in the groin and ''farting''. Bowser Jr. fights in a literal clown car that's equipped with weapons like drills, wrecking balls, a cannon, a ''fork'', and the clown face sticking its tongue out. And then there's Duck Hunt, a trio composed by the dog, a duck, and the unseen hunter from ''VideoGame/DuckHunt'' who use exploding tin cans and clay targets, can summon 8-bit cowboys from thin air to fire at their opponents, and whose [[LimitBreak Final Smash]] involves their opponents getting caught in the middle of an 8-bit shoot-out between cowboys and gangsters.
