** Cesar Romero's Joker was ''way'' over the top, rivaling Nicholson's.

* Creator/AlexKingston as Mrs Bennett in ''LostInAusten''. Kingston is more than capable of giving a [[Series/{{ER}} subtle]], nuanced performance (and has even done so on Show Of Ham ''Series/DoctorWho'' most of the time) - but she chucked it all out the window and went to town as Mrs Bennett. Although to be fair, anyone who ''doesn't'' play Mrs Bennett as an over-the-top piece of smoked, delicious ham is doing it wrong.

** Large Ham seems to be a requirement to play a ''Smallville'' villain. From Season 1, Creator/JohnGlover is beautifully over the top as ''The'' MagnificentBastard, Lionel Luthor and Michael Rosenbaum's ComicBook/LexLuthor gets hammier with each season that passes. Cassidy Freeman is a female example as their successor, DarkActionGirl Tess Mercer. And then there's Callum Blue as Major Zod. "Unlike you I will lead from a throne, not from the shadows! Everyone on earth, including the woman you love, will KneelBeforeZod!" As of Season 10, Mackenzie Gray has been hammishly AxCrazy as Lex's aging, dying clone, and Ted Whittal as Rick Flag? Whoo boy. He recites the Star Spangled Banner as he fires a missile at General Lane. He's not as loud as the other examples, but the sheer intensity Whittal brings to the character puts him here.

*** After a while [[KavorkaMan Ren Amagasaki]] took over, complete with grandiose gestures and a deep yet loud voice. The way he speaks and all just oozes with it.
*** And once [[spoiler: the true BigBad Masamune Dan/ Kamen Rider Chronos]] arrives after he was detained in jail, there is no stopping him from even [[FeedMe chewing the scenery]] when he does what he does best.

* ''Series/{{SCTV}}'' satirized this with such characters as Lola Heatherton and Count Floyd. Two very noticeable examples being Johnny [=LaRue=] and Bobby Bitman. The latter being a parody of Vegas style comedians, every bit of him is hammy including his catchphrase "HOW ARE YA?".

He even cracks a joke about a sandwich shop debuting the Bobby Bittman Special that involves "plenty of ham and [[NobodyTouchesTheHair Vaseline on the side]]."
** Melonville is a WorldOfHam and it would be much shorter to list characters who aren't at least ''slightly'' ham-flavored.

* Both Michael Wilbon and Tony Kornheiser on ''Series/PardonTheInterruption'' are like this. Most guest hosts, such as BillSimmons or Dan [=LeBatard=] are pretty big hams as well.

** The Greatjon is a prime cut of quality Northern ham, capable of laughing his ass off when faced with [[spoiler:his own fingers getting bitten off]].

** Jon Lovitz's Master Thespian character was both a parody and epitome of the LargeHam.
