* ''{{FanFic/Nosflutteratu}}'': Rarity's epic retelling of how Fluttershy came to be a vampire involves a puppet show and dramatic lighting. After all, "What’s the point of telling a story like ''that'' if you don’t make it into an ''experience''?”
* ''FanFic/TheTwilightChild'': Averted in one instance with Rarity, who runs out of taffeta while in the middle of designing a dress. Spike and the pony she's designing the dress for brace themselves for a freak out, and Rarity declares it... annoying. She then goes to look around her stores for spare taffeta.
** Played with later on in regards to an older version of Rarity. Princess Twilight Sparkle and Rarity's daughter are talking when they hear Rarity scream in another room. Her daughter just calmly waits, before announcing that since she didn't hear a thump, she's not worried.

** Creator/JaneAusten also hilariously lampshades this in an early published work titled Love And Freindship (sic). One scene revolves around two girls who are at home when a wounded soldier shows up at their door. They both freak out, but there's only room for one on their fainting couch, so they agree to take turns.

* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'': Julio Scoundrél (Good Version) AND General Tarquin (Evil Version). Both try to make their major actions as dramatic as possible, even though it sometimes screws up their plans and makes things miserable for their allies. Julio satisfies his desire to be an action hero by causing massive chaos and rushing in at the last moment to save everyone. Tarquin... kills a LOT of people with black humor snarking to look up to Darth Vader.

** The flower trio (Roseluck, Daisy, and Lily Valley) give this impression when we first meet them in ''Applebuck Season'', fainting and screaming "the horror, the horror" in response to a herd of rabbits eating their gardens.

** They're at it again (with the same act) in ''Slice of Life'' when Derpy tells them that she put the wrong date on the invitations for a wedding they were providing flowers for.
** And one final time when Lily Valley notices a broken stem on one of the flowers, all while [[{{UnusuallyUninterestingSight}} a monster is]] [[{{FunnyBackgroundEvent}} destroying Ponyville]].
* Mikey from ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'' is a male example.
* Squidward calls Pearl this in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarepants''. And boy, does it '''''show'''''!

** [[LargeHam Rarity]] provides the Trope Image. She over-reacts so frequently and so spectacularly (even using her unicorn magic to summon her fainting couch) that the local avatar of chaos eventually makes fun of her for it. (At one point, she even manages to be a drama queen while writing a letter.)

* TheJoker from ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' lore is well-known for his over-the-top antics. That includes the multiple times he feigns innocence as well.
[[/folder]]


Added DiffLines:

* Half the main cast from ''Series/{{Arrow}}'' manage to qualify under this. For starters, anytime something major occurs in the series, many of the characters already prepare to deliver an overly long monologue about how this affects the team's feelings and will change their lives forever.


Added DiffLines:

* Taken to its highest point in ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamOrigins'' with the Joker. During his first therapy session with Dr. Harleen Quinzel , he goes through a dramatic monologue about how Batman ruined his life and caused him to become who he is. Of course, this also apart of his MultipleChoicePast method of feigning innocence, but he still gains credit for its theatrical performance.
* Out of all characters, the devil Lucifer himself from ''VideoGame/DantesInferno'' goes on a tangent about how God ruined his life for banishing him into Hell and caused him to be DrivenToVillainy because of this action. As always, Lucifer [[NeverMyFault blames everyone else]] for his suffering instead of seeing how evil he really is.

* While he doesn't do it ''too'' often, Happy from ''Manga/FairyTail'' has a tendency to respond to situations by running off in tears, including Natsu deciding to cook a fish (without first offering him any of it raw), [[ItMakesSenseInContext having a mushroom grow out of his head]] [[HypocriticalHumor after having laughed at the same thing happening to Natsu and Gray]], or simply being called "little" by Lucy.
