Xander's fear was created during his sixth birthday. In the party, a clown chased him and he became so frightened that he had what could be assumed an embarrassing accident.
In 1997, during Billy Palmer's nightmarish manifestations of all Sunnydale residents, Xander found a trail of chocolate bars in Sunnydale High School. The clown then appeared from behind a curtain, chasing Xander with a knife while laughing. Xander teamed up with Willow Rosenberg and Rupert Giles and decided to confront the clown, finally punched him and calling him "lousy".
When Billy finally woke up, the clown disappeared along with all other magical constructs under the boy's effect.
