** The murderous robot clowns in the story "The Greatest Show In The Galaxy". The Chief Clown, the only actually human one, is a servant of {{Eldritch Abomination}}s who has come to enjoy any spectacle of brutality or murder. He also taunts one of his former colleagues on supposedly not being able to stop the {{Big Bad}}s. The {{Novelization}} also implies him to be a [[{{Pun}} greedy Pagliaccio]].
** The later episode "The God Complex" inevitably features a clown as one of the apparitions created by an evil hotel which torments people with their greatest fear.

** Parodied when Finn invokes his worst fears in "King Worm", including the sea, the Lich-King, Princess Bubblegum having tea with the Lich and dismissing Finn as "''too yoooung''" in a demonic voice, and his own infancy, all coming out of his bellybutton... and then a little x-eyed clown in muted greenish colors pops up and sneers halfheartedly, "I'm a clooown."

* The ''Literature/TheFortyFirstWink'' has its main villain be a monster clown named Peepers. Notably, this trope is Lampshaded as the main character takes time to say clowns are universally scary and fail horribly at the one thing they're supposed to do (entertain children).
* Subverted in "Literature/TheForsakenChildren" with the pierrot, a color elemental that resemble clowns. They're extremely friendly, but their makeup and costumes are actually its skin.

* The FantasticNoir MonsterMash Literature/FiftyFeetOfTrouble includes the Reverend Bobo Gigglesworth. Creepy, check. Clown, check. Also monster of the cloth.

* [[CuteandPsycho Charlotte]] the witch from ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' because her first form is rather innocuous until you provoke her like [[spoiler:poor Mami]]. Then she reveals (and by that we mean ''vomits out'') a second form (an unholy fusion of a caterpillar, a jack-in-a-box and [[Literature/{{It}} Pennywise the Clown]] with MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily) and [[spoiler:[[KnightOfCerebus bites her head off]] [[HeroKiller and consumes her whole]]]]. The movie somehow manages to make her even creepier with the new theme she gets called [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-j38ZeqBJzA Wo ist die Kase]]. This is appropriate since ''Madoka Magica'' is very much a SubvertedKidsShow.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Mortasheen}}'' combines this with {{Mon}}s and has a classification of creatures (Specifically the Joker class) based on this concept.
** And some of them are very weird. Like the eye-chicken-ventriloquist [[http://www.bogleech.com/mortasheen/opticaper.htm Opticaper]], the straitjacket-snake-clown [[http://www.bogleech.com/mortasheen/insanititter.htm Insanititter]] and whatever [[http://www.bogleech.com/mortasheen/madcap.htm Madcap]] is.

* Tom Foolery of the ''Roleplay/GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse''. Scary makeup, spine-chilling laugh, weaponized toys, and an urge to see the whole world go down in flames. He is the setting's CaptainErsatz of SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker.
