In front of a large audience during the play - which involves how Colombina (played by Nedda), under the knowing eyes of her servant Taddeo (Tonio), slips a sleeping drought in Pagliaccio's (Canio's) wine so that she can elope with her lover Arlecchino (Peppe, the fourth member of the troupe) - Canio derails the comedy to demand that Nedda comes clean. The crowd marvel at how emotive the performance is, but Nedda knows she is in [[OhCrap deep trouble]]. She desperately tries to keep the play on track, which only fuels Canio's anger. He stabs Nedda on stage. Her dying scream gives away the name of her lover, whom Canio then kills. His vengeance done, Canio [[note]]In some stagings, and in the original version of the script, the line is given to Tonio, forming a FramingDevice[[/note]] announces "La Commedia è finita!" - "The play is over!"

* ManipulativeBastard: Tonio plays on everyone's emotions and ultimately succeeds into getting all his rivals to get revenge on each other for him.

** Played closer to a straight version with Tanio, a clown who is also an [[AttemptedRape attempted rapist]] and all-around ManipulativeBastard.

* HostilityOnTheSet: Invoked with the ShowWithinAShow, finally leading Canio to snap.



* MonsterClown: UnbuiltTrope. It's still meant to be taken as ironic and frightening that Canio is depressed and homicidal ''despite'' being a clown, but by the end he definitely counts as a monster.

Added DiffLines:

* NonIronicClown: ZigZagged. DramaticIrony arises from the fact that Canio is engaged to play his clown role non-ironically, which ultimately he isn't able to do because he's a SadClown, leading him to snap and commit a double murder more like a MonsterClown.
