I tried searching with
pacman -Ss for
git-clang-format, etc, but I'm not having any luck.
However, I have seen some references to it on some other websites, implying it may exist (or have existed) somewhere.

git-clang-format are available in several forms:
As a part of
[As noted by OP in the final comments below, and with OP's answer to their own question, these should be included with MSYS2/MingGW on Windows].
As pre-compiled Python wheels for Linux (only) available via
As modules available for Node.js. On Windows, use the standard Windows installer to install Node.js. Otherwise, example Linux package manager commands for installing Node.js are here.
For Python versions on Linux, you may wish to try:
python3 -m pip install clang-format
Assuming Node.js is installed, you can also get them both with:
npm install -g clang-format
Note that on Windows, using the Node.js option seems to be the simplest solution for obtaining just
git-clang-format (without installing MinGW).
libblocksruntime(all version 9) are all available on mingw. Apparently
clangitself isn't enough to run the compiler though. Nov 26, 2019 at 17:18

You can get it as part of the LLVM compiler build for Windows. You can download it from https://llvm.org/builds/. Once installed, clang-format.exe can be found in C:\Program Files\LLVM\bin.
I know it's a bit heavy to install the whole compiler just to get the formatter, but yeah, it just feels safer compared to other sources, given that it's from LLVM itself.
Besides, the installer holds an archive that several tools (e.g. 7-Zip) can open. If you have downloaded the installer, but do not want to install the whole thing, extract the single executable from the archive under bin.
It turns out that MSYS2 already comes with
clang installed, and clang comes with
clang-format. As of my version of clang, I have clang-format 9.0.0 installed. it's possible much earlier versions of clang did not come with it installed.
The clang package was not available in my MSYS2 installation by default, so I had to install it:
pacman -Sy --needed mingw-w64-ucrt-x86_64-clang
You can see where the binary is installed (to add to your PATH, if needed) with the command:
pacman -Ql mingw-w64-ucrt-x86_64-clang | grep bin/clang-format
The output should looks something like this:
