Mad Clown is a traveling circus clown who decided to take up boxing. He made his only appearance in the SNES version of Super Punch-Out!! as the third boxer in the World Circuit. According to the manual, Mad Clown was originally an Italian opera singer. After having a nervous breakdown, he abandoned his singing career to join the circus. The monotony of performing the same juggling routines night after night, combined with being forced to drive a car that was much too small, prompted him to take up boxing. He is a reference to Pagliaccio, the lead character in the opera Pagliacci by Ruggero Leoncavallo.


Super Punch-Out!! (1994)Edit


In the SNES version of Super Punch-Out!!, Mad Clown juggles and throws six juggling balls at his opponent (also cheating). Like Bear Hugger, his sprite edit counterpart, his stomach becomes invulnerable to body blows and uses hugging attacks. He has very high defense and power. His signature move is the "Clown Hook" where he does a fake uppercut, followed by a backhand hook. If you dodge in the wrong direction, you will be hit.

It definitely helps if the player can counter Mad Clown's attacks with a punch to the face. Most of his punches can be countered, allowing the player many opportunites to get in some strong hits.

Mad Clown also has a "Show Time!" move where after two knockdowns, he gets more aggressive and does three jabs along with a hook. However, he doesn't defend himself against the player's punches, allowing the player to easily defeat him.



  • "Welcome! Now let's get this show on the road." (first match)
  • "Huh? Don't you like my show?" (rematch)
  • "Go home! The show is over." (endgame)
  • "Show Time!" (his cornerman, after being knocked down twice, telling him to start a flurry of moves)
