* The main clown in the 3D short animation ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4kACHU5eSwQ Bingo]]''. The whole short uses surrealistic imagery and dialogue to tell the story of an ordinary man who is surrounded by characters who insist that he is someone named "Bingo the Clown", even though he is not.



* One of Riley's deep, subconscious fears in ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut'' is the [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever enormous]] and [[SlasherSmile horrifyingly manic]] Jangles the Clown. "'''''Whooo's the birthday girl?!'''''" In the RealLife CreativeClosingCredits, he's revealed to be a NonIronicClown who is not pleased with his job.

** Which makes it all the more surprising is that the Harlequins are what's considered a ''good'' faction in the setting; that is, they firmly oppose the Chaos, and have a good chance of fighting alongside you alongside you if a common enemy is present. They also protect the [[MagicalLibrary Black Library]] from violators who would almost certainly use its powers for evil.

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' had the Jokerz, [[AllBikersAreHellsAngels a group of criminal biker gang]] (not truly a single organization) that at first were only inspired by the Clown Prince of Crime. Their motivations varied widely. Some were no different than other violent bikers, other than the clown makeup, others were just delinquent kids who did it for fun, and a few were actually competent and malicious villains (but they were rare). They became a serious threat in ''Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker'' where the real Joker returned, killed the leader of the biggest gang, and took over. The same story even introduced two female members, Delia and Deidre Dennis (who called themselves Dee-Dee as a team) Harley Quinn's granddaughters. (Who their parents are is not known, and [[EvilParentsWantGoodKids Harley clearly does not approve of them being crooks]], scolding them harshly after bailing them out of jail.)\\\

* Joker from ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman''. Especially "Vampire Joker" in ''WesternAnimation/TheBatmanVsDracula''.



The Jokerz are far worse in [[BadFuture an alternate future]] of ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' where Chronos recruited them as enforcers, and upgraded them with radically advanced technology and weapons, giving them actual superpowers. In this reality, Dee-Dee not only killed Terry, but also [[Franchise/GreenLantern Kai-Ro]]. (Fortunately, [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong this timeline is erased due to the actions of the present-day League.)]]

* ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' briefly featured an old clown doll named "Mr. Giggles", with a dead-eyed, grinning stare. Bobby is quickly reminded why he was afraid of it, complete with a ScareChord.

** Which makes it all the more surprising that the Harlequins are, if probably not exactly ''good'', at least firmly opposed to Chaos and will join forces (temporarily) with anyone fighting it they come across. They also protect the [[MagicalLibrary Black Library]] from violators who would almost certainly use its powers for evil.

** [[{{Deconstruction}} Deconstructed]] in ''[[TabletopGame/BeastThePrimordial Conquering Heroes]]'' with Peter Slaughbal, a MonsterClown who actually is an [[HumanoidAbomination Insatiable]] and [[FishOutOfTemporalWater only recently found himself in the modern world]] after having been [[SealedEvilInACan trapt for 50 years in a painting]]. Back before his imprisonment, he was part of a circus troupe and could easily lure his preys, since clowns were still seen as a source of fun and delight, but now that popular culture has cast them as horrifying and villainous, his once perfect disguise is a liability at best, and make people run away from him at worst. [[PragmaticVillainy This has actually led him to join clown associations trying to fight this reputation and make effort to avoid harming children, in the hope to fight this reputation.]]
