* Light in ''Manga/DeathNote'' whenever he's Kira-ing, and Mikami at times, mostly when he's "deleting" people. The best example is during the penultimate episode when he [[spoiler:attempts to kill Near, the rest of the SPK force, and all of the task force members apart from Light, which would get rid of anyone who is in Light's way. He's get more psychotic than ever, and goes into an absolutely insane deleting spree, [[MadnessMantra repeating the word over and over again]] as he writes down all the names and it culminates with him ''screaming'' the word at the top of his lungs towards the sky.'']] Terrifying for some, but probably quite entertaining for others.

** It is also so noticeable in Wrath of Khan because it is, by a long shot, Shatner's most restrained performance with this being the one time he goes rather over the top.(seriously, watch a bunch of Shatner's other stuff, especially in recent years when he has become essentially a parody of himself, and then watch Wrath of Khan, the subtlety he shows is both brilliant and quite shocking giving Shatner's normal acting style).

** John Delancey's acting method as Q seems to be 10% condescension, 20% tomfoolery, and 70% scenery chewing. To the point where the few scenes where he gives an understated performance (like when he first introduces the Enterprise to the Borg) are downright chilling.

** John Delancey's acting method de Lancie as Q seems to be 10% condescension, 20% tomfoolery, and 70% scenery chewing. To the point where the few is actually doing a subtle, measured performance... cunningly disguised underneath (or perhaps within) a theatrically flamboyant one. Those scenes where he gives an understated performance Q is *not* camping up a storm (like when he first introduces the Enterprise to the Borg) are downright chilling.

* Kane from ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquer''. Every scene involving him has some of the most awesomely bombastic, larger-than-life acting one could ask for. Hell, in the intro to ''Kane's Wrath'', his pre-battle speech comes complete with ''explosions'', ''thunder'', and ''earthquakes''. ''[[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert3 Red Alert 3]]'' goes for a WorldOfHam with Creator/TimCurry as the Soviet Premier, GeorgeTakei is the Japanese Emperor and J.K. Simmons as the American President. The only denser concentration of ham is a purely theoretical double act with Creator/WilliamShatner and Creator/{{BRIAN BLESSED}}. Adding Wrestling/RicFlair in the mission pack is the icing on this ham-cake.
