I think there's a case of Square Peg Round Trope on this page. Ludwig von Tokkentakker from Carn Evil is listed on this page. Am I the only one who thinks that he doesn't look like a clown at all?

I think that example should be removed.

Could the Ouchy the Clown entry be restored if the link is left out, or would the site sponsors get upset?

The example entry wasn't removed by one of the "site sponsors", so yes, you can restore the entry. Dunno about the link - I didn't see anything NSFW on the linked page.

This trope is, IMO, way overused in media. I have met one or two people in my life that are scared of clowns. In media, 80% of the population fear them.

Maybe I missed it, but Dimentio appears to be missing from the Video Games section.

Couldn't we have the Joker as the page's picture?

I agree. Other pages on this website go out of their way to describe Mr. J as "the original Monster Clown". Then why put that random clown there instead? I would much rather see the Joker and his Slasher Smile than that creepy, empty-eyed clown that currently provides the page image.

Well, this image works fine, so there's really no need to change it for the overused prince of crime.

Aye, plus Joker is well known for other things too.

Exemples: Opera: It's just "pagliacci", not "il pagliacci" (pagliacci being plural, "il" being a singular article
