* ''VideoGame/ChronoCross'' has Skelly, who is a bit of an odd case of this. Appearance-wise, he's extremely [[MonsterClown monstrous]], what with being a ''[[DemBones skeleton]] clown'' and all. Personality-wise, however, he's incredibly friendly, eager to lighten the mood, and a total MommasBoy.

Added DiffLines:

* The TabletopGame/OldWorldOfDarkness crossover game ''Midnight Circus'' features at least three leading clowns on the premises, and out of all of them, Blotto is the only one who isn't a [[DemonicPossession Bane-possessed]] MonsterClown or a delusional [[SinisterMinister religious extremist]] with [[EvilHasABadSenseOfHumor zero sense of humour]]. He doesn't participate in the usual politicking and backstabbing common to the Circus folk, and he doesn't even have any supernatural powers: he's just a perfectly ordinary circus clown, and despite being an alcoholic and a bit of a skirt-chaser, he's actually one of the few genuinely funny performers. Sadly, being an obvious TokenGoodTeammate leaves him and his troupe at the very bottom of the totem pole, making him a firm example of a SadClown.

* 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".

* Ecuadorian clown Tiko Tiko, who was even offended when ''Series/LastWeekTonightWithJohnOliver'' used a clip of his visiting president Rafael Correa to make MonsterClown jokes.

Added DiffLines:

* Music/CharlesMingus' "The Clown" is a tragic version - a clown who genuinely only wants to make people laugh, but gradually comes to realise that the audience is so tired of the NonIronicClown (in 1957, mind) that they'll only laugh when he actually physically hurts himself.

* 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]].

* 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.
