* MatthewReilly has a tendency to italicise too many verbs during the action sequences that take up the bulk of his novels.
* LordPeterWimsey's assistant Miss Climpson likes to emphasize everything with italics in her letters.[[note]]Actually single, double, and triple underlining, which in print translates to italics, small caps, and all caps respectively. Also lots of exclamation points.[[/note]] Since they usually only take up a few pages, it's more of a character quirk than an annoyance.

** This was parodied in ''ComicStrip/PearlsBeforeSwine'' making fun of soap strips, complete every third word being bolded.

* In over ten years of ''GeneCatlow'', there are maybe two sentences that don't end in either an exclamation point, a question mark, or an ellipsis. This can make the frequent [[WallOfText exposition]] frustrating to read, especially on an ArchiveBinge.

* British TV chefs such as Jamie Oliver and GordonRamsay are especially prone to this on their TV cooking shows. both will over-use superlatives continually to describe nice-looking, but perfectly ordinary, dishes that words like "incredible" and "superb" eventually lack significance.

* What about certain presenters - Jeremy Clarkson, for instance, '''really''' ''likes'' '''to put''' ''emphasis'' on '''''almost''''' ''every'' word. Oddly enough, Andrew Marr shares this habit.

Added DiffLines:

* CountryMusic singer Craig Morgan has a tendency to belt and scream when it's completely uncalled for, such as "International Harvester", "Wake Up Lovin' You", and especially "Bonfire". Many times, this is paired with him ridiculously over-exaggerating his twang.
* This could be said to be the SignatureStyle of Music/RascalFlatts on ''Me and My Gang'', ''Still Feels Good'', and ''Unstoppable''. These albums were all produced by Dann Huff, who saddled the band with [[LoudnessWar screaming metal guitars, blaring string sections, and thundering pianos]], forcing lead singer Gary [=LeVox=] to [[MelismaticVocals warble]] above the noise at [[CarefulWithThatAxe an annoyingly high pitch and volume]] that was sometimes literally painful to the listener's ears. Huff finally dialed down the excess when the band moved to Big Machine Records for ''Nothing Like This'' and ''Changed'', and they got rid of him entirely for ''Rewind''.
