* DC also has the Ragdoll dynasty. The father was a golden age villain with contortionist abilities, who would eventually become a Mansonesque cult leader and eventually regained his youth via a DealWithTheDevil. The son lacked his father's natural flexibility, so he remedied it with a series of operations that's left him severely deformed, but with greater flexibility than even his father.
** And don't ask about the sister.

** Verence, a former jester who became king of Lancre, was raised by his Fool grandfather in the grim traditions of the Guild. Said grandfather once gave his young grandson a vicious beating for daring to ''make up an original joke'' about a duck.

Added DiffLines:

** There are two wearable jester outfits obtainable in the game, too. One is Cicero's own, the other one is a somewhat weaker set received if he is spared. Both are only obtainable during the Dark Brotherhood questline and grant bonuses most useful for sneak assassinations, so chances are any Dragonborn that wears them will not exactly be a NonIronicClown, to say the least.

* In ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'', there is a ''playable'' monster clown named Shaco. He can set invisible [[ScaryJackInTheBox jack in the boxes that cause terror]] and fire [[FrickinLaserBeams laser beams]], poof into invisibility with an evil laugh, backstab people with venomed knives, and make duplicates of himself.

He can set invisible [[ScaryJackInTheBox jack in the boxes that cause terror]] and fire [[FrickinLaserBeams laser beams]], poof into invisibility with an evil laugh, backstab people with venomed knives, and make duplicates of himself. Personality and appearance-wise, he's ComicBook/TheJoker in ComicBook/HarleyQuinn's outfit. His origins, meanwhile, are more in line with [[Literature/{{It}} Pennywise]] or the [[ComicBook/{{Spawn}} Violator]] in that he's not human, but a malevolent entity from another world that takes the appearance of a clown.

* ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'' has The Pierrot, a mysterious gang of Ghoul pranksters. Their members wear clown-themed masks, and are known for being ''extremely'' dangerous. It isn't clear what their goals are, besides ruining lives and "having the last laugh". TheReveal of several of its members was a particularly nasty CruelTwistEnding to the original series, while the sequel has shown the group to be major players that should be feared.

One of the more prominent members is an infamous ChildEater, to boot.

EnemyMime is a sub-trope of Monster Clown. A villainous clown that is PlayedForLaughs instead of fear is a VillainousHarlequin. The DepravedKidsShowHost seems to be related. May be combined with CreepyDoll, PerversePuppet, or EvilPuppeteer. Clowns' ghastly white makeup puts them into WhiteMaskOfDoom territory. The Monster Clown is often AffablyEvil or FauxAffablyEvil. Compare RepulsiveRingmaster.

* In 2014, "The World Famous" Wrestling/{{Kana}} started wearing clown makeup and became a "consultant" for joshi fed REINA. Soon enough, she used her new [[ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem authority]], and [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney money]], to give herself a title belt and form a [[PowerStable stable]] known as Piero-gun.

* SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker and his minions certainly qualify in the ''Batman: Arkham'' series. In [[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum the first game]], Joker, all because he wanted a party, arranged for a revolt of Arkham Asylum, [[spoiler: as well as the creation of Titan to cause wanton amounts of destruction in Gotham.]] His actions in that game caused at least 113 personnel casualties, 103 of which were security personnel, as well as an unknown amount of deaths of inmates as well. In addition, he was also implied to have killed 3 personnel when he first escaped from the start of the game, something that he not only doesn't have any regrets to killing them, he decides that he'll try to kill 100 more next time. [[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity The second game]] also has him killing several personnel and doctors as well, [[spoiler: and he also has several hospitals given Batman's blood (which was at that time tainted with his poisoned blood) that would have resulted in hundreds of casualties in order to force Batman into finding him a cure. After death, he also posthumously manages to singlehandedly cause huge riots both in Gotham City and Arkham City with a single radio broadcast that was likely to result in countless casualties, and long beforehand, he also on Independence Day committed a massacre where he has several fireworks laced with toxins that resulted in, after their being set off, several hundreds of men, women, and children's deaths, which was heinous enough to force Batman into locking him up in an isolated part of Arkham]].

** {{Downplayed}} in "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MKk1u5RMTn4 Carnival of Rust]]," as the singer Zoltar, an automaton performer in a CircusOfFear carnival, serves as an unusually eerie and foreboding [[CommediaDellArte Pierrot-figure]]. Though a SadClown, his obvious decrepitude and increasing desperation make the air of menace that much thicker.
