* ''VideoGame/{{Cuphead}}'' has Beppi the Clown, the boss of "[[AmusementParkOfDoom Carnival Kerfuffle]]". He's a clown, who like the other characters of the game, makes use of DerangedAnimation. When the protagonists confront him as part of their gig as [[EvilDebtCollector the Devil's Debt collectors]], Beppi fights them on top of a roller coaster's tracks, and transforms into a creepy-looking balloon man, and later [[spoiler:a giant carousel]], all with [[CheshireCatGrin a big grin]]. The ending shows [[spoiler: when not threatened by Debt collectors, Beppi is actually a pleasant enough person.]]

** In ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' every enemy gets decorated in harlequin garb near the beginning of the story. And of course there's Gamzee Makara, who is a subversion when first introduced as a fairly mellow, perpetually stoned, Faygo-swilling Juggalo. When he sobers up he starts playing the trope straight and things get ugly fast. His Dancestor Kurloz Makara (especially as the High Subjugglator) seems to have ''always'' been a pretty nasty piece of work.

Juggalo who's ''trying'' to troll Dave but is laughably bad at it. When he sobers up he starts playing the trope straight goes directly into MonsterClown territory and things get ugly fast.

* ''WesternAnimation/SuperMansion'' Groaner, who is a villainous prop comic who doesn't seem to be out to actually (intentionally) hurt anyone and has actually accompanied the heroes on a number of missions, but still does things like set a house on fire with a brush so he can make a joke about [[Pun "brushfires"]] and actually came closest to beating the league by stealing one of their expense cards and using it to cause them to go overbudget.
