* Just about every bad guy prior to ''Film/AntMan'' indulges in EvilIsHammy - [[Film/IronMan1 Obadiah Stane]], [[Film/TheIncredibleHulk The Abomination]] (before transformation, not so much), [[Film/IronMan2 Ivan Vanko, Justin Hammer]], [[Film/IronMan3 The Mandarin]] - [[spoiler: both Trevor, who ''is'' a hammy actor playing the supposed terrorist, and Killian, who once embraces the villainous part gets boisterous]] - [[Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger Red Skull]], [[Film/{{Thor}} Loki]], [[Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron Ultron]]... [[Film/ThorTheDarkWorld Malekith]] and [[Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy Ronan]] are more subdued, but still say every line with intensity. For ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'', [[spoiler: the best we've got is Arnim Zola as a VirtualGhost, dropping {{Wham Line}}s in gleefully evil ways.]]
* [[Film/IronMan Tony Stark]] is really full of himself, and always hogging for the spotlight. [[TheNicknamer Giving nicknames to everyone]] is a bonus.

** Although Odin's son Thor (played by Creator/ChrisHemsworth) gives Hopkins a run for his money, what with all the intense gazes and grandiloquent declarations.
** Creator/TomHiddleston as Loki probably takes the prize pig in a [[WorldOfHam family of hams]], though, leaving most of the ham for when he strikes Earth in ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}''. Seriously, the speech he gave to the crowd in Germany was spectacularly theatrical:

* The follow-up to the new Zod was, appropriately, Lex Luthor in ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice''. And Creator/JesseEisenberg gives the expected ham, with talky dialogue [[MotorMouth spoken really fast]], a perpetually manic mood ("Ow-wow! That is a good grip!You should not pick a fight with this person!") and a shoulder-length haircut that just fits the overacting.

* Zod. One has to [[KneelBeforeZod kneel before him]] in respect of his vast arsenal of over-the-top bluster, which he can back up on Earth with tremendous power only the Man of Steel can challenge. Whole [[http://www.generalzod.net/ websites]] have been devoted to the glorious [=OTTness=] of Terence Stamp's portrayal of Zod as a vain, short-tempered and sometimes rather bored aristocratic psycho. So indelible was Stamp's rendition (which bore little resemblance to the comic character on whom it was based) that most subsequent comic versions of Zod have been negatively received due to their lack of similarity to Stamp's characterization. Recently they just gave up and reintroduced the "real" Zod in the direct likeness of Stamp's persona.

* His performance as Pennywise the Dancing Ham in ''Film/{{It 1990}}'' freely mixes this trope with terror.
-->"Aww...come on, BUCKO! Don't ya want a ba-LOON?"
-->"They all FLOOOOOAT down here!"
-->"I am the eater of worlds...And of CHILDREN!"
-->"KISS ME, FATBOY!"
-->"Don'tcha want it? Don'tcha WANT IT? Don'tcha ya WANT IT? DON'TCHA WANT IT?"
-->"Beep Beep Richie!"
** His EvilLaugh in particular touches both bases.
*** Except at one point where it becomes intentionally hilarious:
--->"Excuse me, Sir!! Do you have Prince Albert in a can?? You ''do''?? Well, ya better let the poor guy out!! WA-HA! WA-HA! WA-HA!
