We here at Unreality enjoy the psychopathic clown. It’s just so unusual. Clowns scare the crap out of me whether or not they’re even intended to be scary. And in recent years, video games have also turned to the clown to instill fear into its players.
But alas, remember something kids. Those of us who were around back in the NES days, clowns did in fact exist. They just weren’t so prevalent.
So with that in mind, I’ve taken a look at 10 historical video game clowns both old and new
Krusty The Clown – Krusty’s Super Fun House
If I could make the sound of Krusty’s laugh come out in text I would.
Bonker – Clay Fighter
Those teeth scare the crap out of me.
The Joker – Batman: Arkham Asylum
Impossible to leave out the Joker. What a badass.
Doink – WWF Wrestlemania
Wait, isn’t that Beetlejuice? Nope. Doink. What kind of name is that? Sounds like a verb for sex.
Kick Man- Kick Man
Oh come on. He’s such a fun little guy I had to put him in here!
Kinky Pinky – Narc
Another retro awesome clown, Kinky Pinky came out in 1988 and is a precursor to all the scary clowns you see in video games today. Way to go Narc!
Adam the Clown: Dead Rising
If you play through the entirety of the game and never fight the chainsaw-juggling, fire-balloon blowing, roller-coaster hijiacking psycho clown, it can be argued that you didn’t really experience Dead Rising.
Insane Clown Posse: Backyard Wrestling 2
Wait, was I saying something? The chick in the middle kind of distracted me.
Sweet Tooth from Twisted Metal
Flaming hair and an ice cream truck that fires explosive treats? This could be the most iconic clown in video game history.
Mad Clown – Super Punch Out
Kind of reminds me of The Revolting Blob in Billy Madison. He just looks kind of funny doesn’t he?
