"It means that fear has taken a physical form......and now, it's trying to suck people into Madness directly...the Madness must be getting more contagious. That's the only explaination..."
Despite the uniformity in each individual Clown's purpose and ability, their actual appearance varies greatly between them, with the only visible exception being that they all possess a vaguely humanoid structure in their stature. The remainder of their bodies are seemingly composed from a random assortment of items, which is as distinctive as each particular Clown.
After an ample amount of time has passed in which Madness becomes rampant, there are two processes in which Clowns are created. One process requires the use of a factory such as the Borscht Seven Factory, which is a crib of Madness and is used to create Clowns. Another method is possible in which another Clown can reassemble the torn and burned remains of previously killed Clowns, reforming them into orbs topped with flames. The orbs then lift to reveal stalks underneath them digging into the surface, eventually forming into another Clown.

- Infinite Propagation (無限増殖, Mugen zōshoku): This capability allows Clowns to reform themselves after death. This capability allows them to spawn infinitely, so long as they're connected to Asura's Madness Wavelength (Madness of Fear) as well as a fellow Clown is around to perform this special ability.
- Madness Infection (狂気感染, Kyōki Kansen): With the use of their Soul Wavelength, a Clown can draw others into Madness (specifically, the Madness of Fear) and infect them.
- Join (一つになり, Hitotsu ni nari): A special ability that allows clowns to merge with one another to form a more powerful entity.
- Madness Fusion (狂気融合, Kyōki Yūgō): Clowns are also able to fuse with other, non-Clown entities who're susceptible to Madness and form a temporarily more powerful form.
Rebuffing Infinite Propagation is possible with the Soul Protect spell allied as "Protect Bullets", as it is capable of cutting off the connection of Asura's Madness Wavelength from a Clown However, Eruka Frog stated such a feat isn't possible with one or two witches and requires a team.
In addition, though not explicitly mentioned, the Madness from Asura's Wavelength, which the Clowns feed off of, could potentially be blocked by the Madness of Order due to the fact that even Asura states the unique Madness from a True God of Death can counteract his own.
