LargeHam non-villains in a WorldOfHam where everyone breaks out into song at regular intervals? Check. HamToHamCombat? Check. Soundtrack predominantly composed of pop music given a SofterAndSlowerCover? Check. Costuming? Lavish. Aesthetics? Fantastic. Music? Amazing. DisneyAcidSequence? Definitely. Also, the director of the film (Baz Luhrman) is a CampStraight.

** The new series, faced with [[ILikedItBetterWhenItSucked the terrifying prospect]] of a reasonable budget and cheap and high-quality special effects being widely available by that point, perhaps overcompensated for this by having a DarkerAndEdgier Doctor - one who was now the LastOfHisKind, wore [[PuttingOnTheReich a black leather jacket that, in WWII London, has a fellow time traveller compare him to a U-Boat Captain]] and a [[ExpositoryHairstyle shaved head]] and had committed double genocide as BackStory - fighting mostly extremely goofy comedy monsters over his short run, with the notable exceptions being the Daleks, a "serious" but legendarily campy [[TheFifties 50s]] BMovie-like monster [[ReconstructedTrope played painfully straight here]] and the Empty Child (whose double parter is considered to be one of the best and creepiest stories in the show's history). The worry was that, with good special effects, the NarmCharm responsible for a lot of the campy appeal would be lost, and so it had to be added by replacing "low camp" with "high camp" - not least to avoid traumatising children (which [[NightmareFuel the original series cared about much less]], being by far the goriest show on the BBC at the time). By the second series, the Doctor got more mellow and the monsters got (mostly) spookier, finding what is generally agreed to be a good middle ground - and it's still camp as hell. Since then, it's yo-yo'd between gleefully embracing the camp and playing up the drama (the John Simm incarnation of the Master epitomising this by alternating between dancing and singing along to the Scissor Sisters and casually ordering the deaths of 600 million people).

** The costume designs under Creator/JohnNathanTurner's tenure as producer were done this way for [[MerchandiseDriven merchandising reasons]], probably inspired by the IconicOutfit appeal of the Fourth Doctor's scarf - the Doctors went from dressing in a somewhat [[RummageSaleReject bohemian]], [[AwesomeAnachronisticApparel anachronistic]] approach to [[UnintentionalPeriodPiece whatever is mainstream fashion of the day]], into dressing in blatant costume, with red question-mark motifs and occasionally really hideous colour schemes. Many fans agree this crossed over into WhatTheHellCostumingDepartment, especially with the Sixth and Seventh Doctors, though the JN-T Fourth Doctor outfit is generally agreed to be flattering and quite good.

* ''Anime/CodeGeass'' actually brings a rather large component of camp to everything from its voice acting (Lelouch, Lloyd and the Emperor are the most obvious examples), elaborate outfits and posing (see almost every time Zero gives a public speech), over-the-top events, crazy robot power-ups and many other elements. Not much of a surprise if you realize the director previously made ''{{Scryed}}'' and ''Anime/GunXSword'', plus was also part of the staff who worked on ''Anime/MobileFighterGGundam''.

* Film/GodsOfEgypt is low camp in spots, with severeral unintentionally funny moments and lunacy littered about in an otherwise dull film.



* The 1982 film version of ''Literature/EvilUnderTheSun'' by Creator/AgathaChristie is about as camp as a murder mystery can be; a number of the characters are portrayed with very theatrical personalities and dialogue, and the music score consists entirely of arranged orchestral medleys based on Creator/ColePorter songs.

* The infamous ''The Wild Wild World Of Batwoman'' may well qualify as one of the worst movies ever, owing to its having been a ''failed'' attempt at camp. It is a rip-off of the Adam West TV series, right down to the ludicrous villains and the 60s go-go dancing. The producers of ''Batman'' took Jerry Warren to court, which is why he threw in that tacked-on opening about the "synthetic vampire" Batgirls.

* The bread, butter, and jam of ''Series/TheAquabatsSuperShow''.



* ''VideoGame/BarkleyShutUpAndJamGaiden''. Its premise is that of a post-cyberpocalyptic world where basketball is outlawed (and its former players hunted down and murdered) because one Charles Barkley performed a [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique Chaos Dunk]] and accidentally killed thousands in the ensuing blast. The {{bathos}} is palpable, and it never ceases (including such things as Michael Jordan [[spoiler:infecting Barkley's son Hoopz with ''type 2 diabetes'' through a ''needle'', and Barkley reacting by calling Jordan a "motherfucking goddamn UsefulNotes/{{baka}}".]]



* ''VideoGame/DeadlyPremonition'' is camp of the unintentional variety. With it's less than stellar voice acting, animation, sound mixing, graphics, script, framerate--well just about everything, it's the embodiment of SoBadItsGood.



* ''VideoGame/MassEffect3''- the final DLC, Citadel, is made of this trope. [[EvilIsHammy Hammy villains]], a shootout in a sushi restaurant that you will [[NeverLiveItDown never live down]], and the fact that the day is saved by a ''toothbrush'' push this DLC firmly into camp.
* ''Franchise/MetalGear'' combines the aesthetics of burly military video games, 80s action movie ClicheStorm played almost [[{{Narm}} painfully]] straight as {{Melodrama}}, inspiration from post-modernist LitFic, RealRobot anime, goofy SurrealHumour, philosophy, villains with RefugeInAudacity powers like the ability to [[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou read the player's mind]] and shoot bees or ghosts at you, a cast of {{Ascended Fanboy}}s acting out their favourite tropes as superpowers, and slightly too much HoYay to be unintentional.



* ''VideoGame/SaintsRowTheThird'' and ''Videogame/SaintsRowIV'' embody this. They have it all: wacky stereotypes, ludicrously awesome weapons and vehicles, insane scenarios, crazy stories (there's even an optional mission where you help Good Santa take down an [[EvilCounterpart Evil Santa]] that talks in DrSeuss rhymes to save Christmas), missions where you blow stuff up for fun, and much more.



* ''VideoGame/UntilDawn'' is an homage to [[BMovie B horror movies]], and it shows. While it expands on some of its archetypes (particularly with regards to CharacterDevelopment) and knits them together, despite a relative tone shift two-thirds of the way into the game, it plays its story and execution gleefully straight.
