* ''WesternAnimation/MuchaLucha is very much this. Everyone in their world is a wacky, over-the-top MaskedLuchador with the strange ability to morph their bodies into whatever shapes that are based on their special move's names. They go on crazy adventures that lead them to battle evil toilets, ancient Mexican mummies, an entire classroom that teaches some of the other luchadors how to be evil, and many other bizarre things.

* WesternAnimation/TotallySpies is pure camp. We have three [[GirlyGirl somewhat ditzy teenage girls]] who, for reasons unknown, become secret agents for a spy corporation oddly named WOOHP. They each wear their own bright-colored spandex outfits and are given silly gadgets that look like hairdryers, makeup kits, and many other female fashion-themed devices. The villains they face are absurd, complete with ludicrous motivations.

* The video for Sweden's 2007 {{Eurovision|SongContest}} entry, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=urCLhm_VBsk "The Worrying Kind"]] by The Ark, is three minutes of pure, distilled camp. And who could forget 2006 winners Music/{{Lordi}} - a Finnish heavy metal group, adorned in full-body monster costumes, which sings about the "Day of Rockening"? [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_-Uc8F8_c1M&feature=related Combine for maximum powah!]]

* ''Film/FlashGordon''. The movie's script was written by Lorenzo Semple Jr., script consultant and sometimes episode writer for the Adam West-era ''Series/{{Batman}}''. The theme song is done by ''Queen''. Of course it's going to be camp as hell.

* Two words: DeadlyPremonition. It's 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/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 Jordon [[spoiler:infecting Barkley's son Hoopz with ''type 2 diabetes'' through a ''needle'', and Barkley reacting by calling Jordon a "motherfucking goddamn UsefulNotes/{{baka}}".]]

* ''VideoGame/UntilDawn'' is an homage to 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. [[WhatCouldHaveBeen Originally]], it would have been [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4yQsa3uwkR8 even campier]].

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'': the anime's 2nd OP is a good demonstration of the glam {{Bishonen}} action, but you can't realize how Campy it is until you perform or see the poses in real life, which [[MemeticMutation caught on first with fans]] and spread to other anime and Japanese idols and celebrities.

* ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' was ''meant'' to be a classic "dashing hero saves beautiful true love with aid of LovableRogue mentor" story. Then Creator/JohnnyDepp took over and turned it into something glorious.

%% Examples are alphabetized.



* {{Creator/Quentin Tarantino}}'s ''Film/KillBill'' movies. [[TheComicallySerious Comically serious]] dialogue, [[{{Gorn}} over-the-top gore]], and the hero's bright yellow spandex outfit are just the icing on the cake.

* {{Creator/Quentin Tarantino}}'s ''Film/IAnActress'' is a 10-minute short film in which legendary independent camp filmmaker George Kuchar gets a student in his acting class to deliver some ludicrous dialogue in a more and more hammy manner until she and the audience both start bursting into laughter.
