*** Also in evidence with Guy Smiley, America's favorite game show host. Apparently, Jim Henson strained his voice so much doing Smiley (as [[NoIndoorVoice he shouts everything he says]]) that all his earlier segments were pre-recorded.

*** Taken UpToEleven with the characters who play off of Thespian, such as Creator/PhilHartman (as William H. Macy), Creator/GlennClose (as his lover), and Creator/JohnLithgow (as his mentor). The latter two also deliver their own versions of his classic exclamation: "ACTING!"

** Gentaro Kisaragi from ''Series/KamenRiderFourze'' arguably out-hams everyone else ''in the entire franchise'' thanks to his HotBlooded nature. '''"IT'S SPACE TIIIIIIIIIIIIIIME!!!!!!!"'''
*** Yuki Jojima's hamminess should not be underestimated as well. [[http://www.jefusion.com/2011/09/kamen-rider-fourze-henshin-fight.html Just watch her devour the scenery]] as Gentaro performs his first henshin.
*** JK has his moments too! But not that much.
*** Their teacher [[ButtMonkey Ohsugi]] also a ham himself! Look at him overact!
*** Not trailing behind is the [[RedEyesTakeWarning Red Eyed Man]] [[BigBad Mitsuaki Gamou]]. Just listen to him speak! [[EvilIsHammy So evil that it is hammy]]!
*** If we're talking about Zodiarts look no further than Natsuji Kijima A.K.A the Cancer Zodiarts. He is basically the Zodiarts equivalent of Gentaro; wherever Kijima may be he is always telling some rakugo joke or just insulting his opponent in some hilarious way.
*** The successor ''Series/KamenRiderWizard'' has a LargeHam in it too! Shunpei Nara has over-the-top expressions that [[FeedMe chews the scenery]].
*** Looking back, it seems like [[BigBad General Xaviax]] of Series/KamenRiderDragonKnight is also made up of this.
** [[Series/KamenRiderDrive Kamen Rider Mach's]] first appearance sets him up as the hammiest Rider ever. He's the whole damn pig.
** ''Seroes/KamenRiderGhost'' has its resident AgentMulder, Onari. Then again, his hamminess goes as far as ChewingTheScenery in most episodes.

''Series/KamenRiderWizard'' has a LargeHam in it too! Shunpei Nara has over-the-top expressions acting as the local hamsmith until he's eclipsed by Kousuke Nitoh, Kamen Rider Beast.
** While ''Series/KamenRiderDrive'' is another WorldOfHam like ''Fourze'', Kamen Rider Mach is a standout in his initial appearances, being such a ham
that [[FeedMe chews he can literally smash the scenery]].
*** Looking back, it seems like
fourth wall with a mallet. [[spoiler:He's not nearly so hammy once his mask breaks.]]
** ''Series/KamenRiderGhost'' has Onari and Igor seemingly determined to make up for the DullSurprise their respective masters display by acting hard enough for the both of them.
** [[Series/KamenRiderExAid Kuroto Dan]], once exposed as the BigBad, pulls at least four or five faces in ''every episode'' that would each get a character thrown in this list all by itself. EvilIsHammy ''indeed''.
** Even American adaptations aren't immune.
[[BigBad General Xaviax]] of Series/KamenRiderDragonKnight is also made up of this.
** [[Series/KamenRiderDrive Kamen Rider Mach's]] first appearance sets him up as
quite the hammiest Rider ever. He's the whole damn pig.

* [[Series/AllMyChildren Erica Kane]] is a good example of a soap character that can be quite hammy. Reva from GuidingLight is another one.

** Three episodes in and we're introduced to the delightful Syrio Forel, who give little Arya Stark lessons in both swordfighting and advanced scenery-chewing.
** Khal Drogo goes on an ''epic'' RoaringRampageOfRevenge [[AddedAlliterativeAppeal Rant]] after the [[spoiler:failed assassination attempt on Daenerys]].
** King Robert Baratheon.

Daenerys]]. He channels the Maori ''haka'' dance during the RousingSpeech where he proclaims said revenge.
** King Robert Baratheon. He nearly scrapes the castle walls clean while arguing with Ned about Daenerys' assassination.



** Carice van Houten's Lady Melisandre: "The night is dark and full of terrors." It would be ham to the point of narm if it wasn't so creepy.

Added DiffLines:

** Daenerys herself loves to ham it out with an intimidating speech whenever she has the chance, always including her string of titles ('I am Daenerys Stormborn of the House Targaryen...'). Whether she's in any position to make good on her threats varies greatly.
** Boisterous barbarians like Tormund Giantsbane and Shagga son of Dolf.
** Roy Dotrice's OneSceneWonder performance as Pyromancer Hallyne does credit to his equally hammy readings of the ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' audiobooks.
** Oberyn Martell hams it up during a duel partially to throw his opponent off.

* The laziest and hammiest person in ''LazyTown'' is without a doubt Robbie Rotten. Portrayed in an over-the-top style similar to Jim Carrey's portrayal of the title character in ''How The Grinch Stole Christmas''. He'll keep on hamming........''FOREVER!!'.
