* The 2012 anime adaptation of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' made Dio even more {{memetic|Mutation}} thanks to the dulcet tones of Create/TakehitoKoyasu taking large bites out of the scenery, in and out of battle. [[WorldOfHam The entire cast does quite a bit of scenery chewing]], but Dio really takes the cake.

* Crispin Glover in ''River's Edge'', I know he was suppose to be a cokehead but Glover played him too much like the dark side of George Mcfly complete with stuttering threats and nervous chatter. I know he got high praise for the role, but I couldn't help but think he wasn't just Chewing the scenery so much that the character rose laughs out of me instead of fear or intimidation.

* In ''Fanfic/TheLegendOfTotalDramaIsland'', the normally deadpan Noah is oblivious to the fact that he's hamming up the delivery when he gives a [[RousingSpeech flowery blank verse speech]] based on the “[[Theatre/HenryV St. Crispin’s Day]]” speech during the dodgeball match. TheStoryteller also notes that “a swell of dramatic music” accompanied Noah's speech in the finished episode.

* John Tuturro in Anthony Hopkin's confusing art flick Slipstream, playing a over the top growling, insane producer who is sidesplittingly funny as well and this a year before Tom Cruise in Tropic Thunder. In one scene, he loses it with the director when he brings his child to the filming and almost nearly attacks him like a wild animal. I don't know if it was ment to be this way or if Tuturro was just hamming it up big time, though he would be in competition with Christian Slater, who literally dies of overacting in the movie as the actor playing a menancing gangster along with Jeffrey Tambor who is at least subtle about it. Though in Slater's case it might just be that the script called for his chewing the scenery.

** The politicians in the ancient Greek and Roman democracies may have been even more extreme. Unfortunately Unfortunately, for the most part, all we have are the texts of their speeches.speeches. There are some descriptions of speeches, however. In particular, we know that Late Republican Rome (around the 1st and 2nd centuries BCE), the most popular speechmaking style, especially in the courts, was the "Asiatic," which called for long speeches with florid language and hand gestures, overemphasized speech, and ManlyTears; when Creator/{{Cicero}} appeared with his SimpleCountryLawyer act, which used a clear style of oratory that got straight to the point, the audience was impressed with the freshness of it. (In Rome, watching trials was a major form of entertainment, and there was no shortage of them--you think modern Americans are litigious? They have nothing on the Romans.)
