Der Klown is a minor antagonist in the 2015 American comedy-horror film Krampus.
Der Klown is no doubt the scariest and most dangerous of Krampus's henchman. He is encountered in the attack with the rest of the toys where he is seen swallowing Linda's daughter Jordan whole.
Der Klown is a man-sized Jack-in-the-Box. He wears a blue jacket with a striped undershirt, as well as white gloves. On his head is a red, two-pronged jester's hat, each prong ending in a tiny bell. His face has two small beady eyes, a red nose, and painted red cheeks, lipstick, eyelashes, and eyebrows. His mouth is actually a facade, the plastic pieces splitting apart to reveal a gigantic fleshy maw with numerous rows of small teeth. His body resembles a large slug-like creature made of white polka-dotted fabric, and the tip of his tail is tipped with a box with his face on it and a small crank handle.
