* The trope shows up, of all places, in ''AllFleshMustBeEaten'', with the "alcoholic party clown" character archetype. According to his bio, guy used to be an entertainer at kids' parties who enjoyed his job, and despite the ZombieApocalypse [[DrowningMySorrows hitting him pretty damn hard]], he's still doing his best to survive, help out others [[FriendToAllChildren (especially kids)]], and trying to [[SadClown bring a bit of levity to the grim realities of a zombie-plagued world]].

* The tragic clown opera ''{{Pagliacci}}'' (although it must be said that, even if nobody in it is a modern "monster clown" psycho, ''none'' of them are nice people).

* Possibly [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] in VideoGame/KirbyTripleDeluxe with the Circus ability. Yes, it is [[TheHero Kirby]] doing tricks like tumbling and juggling, but he's using these to attack, not to entertain.

* Japanese Women's Pro-Wrestling Project and Wrestling/{{All Japan Womens Pro Wrestling}}'s Command Bolshoi is fun, not evil, and no attempts are made to make her look scary. She is among the most competent veterans on around and as such, not the butt of many common clown jokes [[KidAppealCharacter but she's still used to appeal to children.]]

* ''GarfieldAndFriends'': Binky the Clown is another parody. Unlike Krusty, he's passionate about being a clown. And although he's not monstrous or evil, he's incredibly obnoxious and irritating to just about everybody. Played far straighter in the comics, where Garfield genuinely enjoys Binky's antics. That is, when he isn't the target of Binky's antics.

Added DiffLines:
This type of clown is a good guy in every sense of the word. He or she is devoted to clowning, and absolutely loves hearing people laugh, especially children. If the clown [[MagicalClown has magic powers]], if he or she isn't using them to fight evil, then he or she will most likely be seen using magic to put on a wonderful show for his or her audience. Unfortunately, Non-Ironic Clowns aren't always loved as much as they love others. In works featuring good clowns, there will usually be at least one person who is afraid of or distrusts said clown. Despite this, the Non-Ironic Clown keeps on going, whether the dissenter changes their mind or not.

* Although Bozo is mentioned later on in this article, at one point, he was the mascot for Capitol Records' children's division, where he was known as "Bozo the Capitol Clown".

* Zip from ''RockAndRule'' was a fan of the in-universe cartoon "Uncle Mikey's Cow-toon Show", starring a clown named Uncle Mikey. While Uncle Mikey was ugly-looking and his choppy animation could have made him rather disturbing to watch, he was actually a sweet character who tried to teach children the difference between good and bad.

** The clown at Haley's Circus is a recurring character in the {{New 52}} ''{{Nightwing}}''. He's a bit cynical, especially about working in Gotham; Gothamites tend not to be fond of clowns.
