* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QDvdSGkN0aU&feature=related This]] ''RomperRoom'' opening. Pop goes the weasel, and the jack in the box comes out of his house...and he looks INSANE.

* Rudy the Clown in the ''VideoGame/WarioLand'' series, who's both a demon that transformed a world to monsters and steals life saving medicines from Doctor Mario (Although in the latter case [[FreudianExcuse he did have somewhat of an excuse for why he stole it, as he did need it for his cold]]).

* ''Theatre/{{Pagliacci}}'': An UnbuiltTrope. The opera involves Canio trying to play a NonIronicClown, when in fact he is a SadClown because of his wife is cheating on him, but TheShowMustGoOn. Finally he snaps and stabs his wife and her lover to death on stage in front of a live audience. The whole point is that he's not a monster or a psychopath just because he's a clown; if anything, his clown role is meant for DramaticIrony. On the other hand, the evil hunchback clown Tonio plays the trope much straighter, being a ManipulativeBastard (and attempted rapist) who spitefully engineers the events that lead to the deaths at the end.

* Subverted by Wrestling/{{Sting}} in Wrestling/{{TNA}} during his 2011 war against the Immortal faction. Slathering over his trademark black lipstick with a grotesquely smeared red GlasgowGrin, playing pranks, and [[TheHyena laughing and carrying on maniacally]], he ''seemed'' to be a Monster Clown but was actually more of a LovableRogue playing mind games with the villains. Definitely a case of LoveItOrHateIt, especially for longtime Sting fans.

* Invoked with the appearance of the Puppet from ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys2''. He most definitely will kill the player if the music box runs out.

** ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddysSisterLocation'' introduces animatronics that look like this mixed with [[CreepyDoll cutesy girls' toys]]. Baby, in particular, looks like a standard clown, complete with being something of an usherette who introduces the performances.

[[spoiler:Then there's Ennard, made from various animatronics, including Baby, who uses a clown for [[IAmLegion their]] face.]]
** ''VideoGame/FreddyFazbearsPizzeriaSimulator'': [[spoiler:After being ejected from Ennard]] Baby reappears in a 'scrap' form that involves her making a claw for her arm and what is possibly realistic human hair. [[spoiler:The game also reveals that Elizabeth Afton, who is possessing Baby, is DaddysLittleVillain. Conversely, though, it does confirm that the Puppet is indeed the BigGood, having been possessed by a murder victim hell bent on protecting the innocent.]]

* ''VideoGame/{{Cuphead}}'' has Beppi the Clown, the boss of "[[AmusementParkOfDoom Carnival Kerfuffle]]". He's a deranged clown who fights you on top of a roller coaster's tracks, and transforms into a creepy-looking balloon man, and later [[spoiler:a giant carousel]], all with [[CheshireCatGrin a big grin]].
