* Averted in ''ComicBook/AstroCity'' -- Jack-in-the-Box may have the Joker's fashion sense, but he's definitely a hero.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'': Interestingly subverted by the Eldar Harlequins, which are technically good (i.e. they fight [[EldritchAbomination Chaos]]), are best described as [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot psychedelic space elf killer clown ninjas]], and are so competent even the Dark Eldar, who have an almost psychopathic urge to horrifically maim, torture, and kill every living being they can get a hold of, are afraid to keep them from the otherwise impenetrable Hell dimension they reside in. Oh, and they use some of the setting's most horrific weapons when they're not doing [[MagicDance psychically enhanced cautionary interpretive dance]], [[DanceBattler not that they much care for the difference]], though.

* ComicBook/TheJoker has wobbled between ''More Monster / More Clown'' depending on the decade, with the 50s and 60s leaning most strongly to the latter. Interestingly, the addition of his sidekick ComicBook/HarleyQuinn (who takes this to a literal example) ends up balancing the 'more Monster' situations. It's interesting to note that Harley is only PlayedForLaughs when she's fawning over The Joker. When she goes out on her own, ''especially'' when she's out to prove herself to The Joker, she [[TookALevelInBadass takes a serious level in bad ass]] and becomes a dangerous threat to even Batman himself.

* ''Franchise/TheFlash''[='=]s enemy, The Trickster. Just imagine TheJoker but with more of a scientific genius and less psychosis. Like the rest of the Rogues, he's generally focused on petty theft instead of thinking bigger with his advanced tech.

* Creditor The Clown of Chicago debt-settlement firm Legal Helpers. His main shtick is that he demands money from people he loaned by [[LoanShark beating them with his inflatable bat, screaming, "Where's my money?"]] He is eventually thwarted by spokesman Erik Martin, who proceeds to [[HoistByHisOwnPetard steal his bat and knock him out.]]
