* In the wrap-up movie to ''Series/TheFamousJettJackson'', Jett swaps places with his superspy ShowWithinAShow character Silverstone. While Jett is struggling to survive in a world of spies and supervillains with zero training, Silverstone has to deal with being a (more or less) normal teenager in a small town, as well as an actor. Despite being a spy, Silverstone is utterly terrible at acting, causing his co-stars to burst into laughter, assuming he's just pretending.

* In ''{{Disney/Moana}}'', Moana is sent into Tamatoa's cave to attract his attention by dressing up as a shiny trinket and gives a lackluster, deadpan performance. Maui even makes mention of the fact that she's not selling it.

And even though Tamatoa sees through her charade, he still can't resist falling for the trap due to his narcism, but still, she definitely ''wasn't'' selling it.

** Locke's performance in the Opera scene of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' is supposed to be this. Due to technical limitations, it's left as an InformedAbility. Although he ''does'' refer to the main character of the opera by the name of her actress. That's a pretty amateurish mistake.

** Locke's performance in the Opera scene of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' is supposed to be this. has the Impressario comment on how terrible his acting is. Due to technical limitations, it's left as an InformedAbility. Although he ''does'' refer InformedAbility, since a player can't actually hear him talk. However, Locke refers to the main character of the opera by the name of her actress. That's actress instead of the name of her character, which is a pretty very amateurish mistake.



** The infamous laughing scene in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' qualifies, since the characters themselves are fake-laughing as a sort of game. ''Videogame/FinalFantasyX'' will NeverLiveItDown.

Tidus has just learned that [[spoiler:Sin is actually his father Jecht, though he doesn't know how or why yet]], and as a sort of game. ''Videogame/FinalFantasyX'' will NeverLiveItDown.such, his laughing comes off as incredibly awkward in-universe. Wakka even says "we were just worried you guys might have gone crazy" after Tidus and Yuna are done fake-laughing.

** In "Hurricane Fluttershy", Fluttershy's attempts at playing sick are rather bad. She pretends to sneeze and cough in the most unconvincing way possible.
** Applejack's DamselInDistress acting in "Spike at Your Service" isn't a whole lot better, with very flat cries for help, and very unconvincing acting. Weirdly, Spike says he's impressed by it.

In general, she tends towards over-the-top, overacted moaning melodrama.
** In "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS8E7HorsePlay Horse Play]]", Princess Celestia proves to be a ''terrible'' actress, alternating between over-acting and under-acting: she starts out whispering at a barely audible level, overcompensates by going into the ear-bustlingly loud Royal Canterlot Voice, can't work through a choreography to save her life and has seemingly no ability to suspend disbelief whatsoever. She can't even play ''charades''.

* One episode of ''Series/{{Garo}}: Makai Senki'' involved a popular idol making his acting debut as the hero of a classical play. He delivers all his lines in ridiculously stilted fashion, ignoring all direction in favour of his own ad-libs. The rest of the cast and crew despairs of him but are forced to put up with him because he draws in audiences.

* ''Series/TheOfficeUS'' episode "Threat Level Midnight" showcases Michael's personal pet project movie of the same name, which has the Dunder-Mifflin staff as the actors. But since they aren't professional actors, much of their dialogue delivery either comes off as way [[LargeHam over the top]] (especially Jim as the BigBad), sounding like they're [[DullSurprise phoning in their performances]], or [[TookTheBadFilmSeriously trying to sound dramatic]] in spite of the cliched writing, resulting in all kinds of {{narm}}. Karen's line delivery is especially bad, to the point the documentary crew actually tracked her down to ask her about this, much to her irritation.

* In the 90s film version of ''Film/MuchAdoAboutNothing'', Don Pedro, Leonato, and Claudio fall into this when they're discussing Beatrice's supposed love for Benedick loudly enough for Benedick to hear as part of the initial matchmaking plot. They're pretty terrible actors (in-universe) but Benedick falls for it, hook, line, and sinker.
