* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', you can summon a prime example of this by using a "Conjure Dremora Lord" spell.
--> ''[[NoIndoorVoice I HONOR my LORD!]]'' ''By '''DESTROYING YOU!'''''

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', you can summon Throughout ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series, this is a trait of the Dremora, an intelligent race of [[OurDemonsAreDifferent lesser Daedra]] who are most commonly found in the service of [[DestroyerDeity Mehrunes Dagon]] as his LegionsOfHell. They are essentially a race (the ''MasterRace'' if they are to be believed) of LargeHam {{Blood Knight}}s with [[EvilSoundsDeep deep]] [[NoIndoorVoice "outdoor" voices]]. Some prime example snippets of this by using a "Conjure Dremora Lord" spell.
their dialogue:
--> ''[[NoIndoorVoice ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'': "After I kill you, [[BlackComedyRape I will rape your corpse]]. Don't worry. I'll be gentle."
--> ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'': "Bow to me!" "Break and fall!" "Break! Bleed!" "Burst, bloodsack!" (And those are just the ones starting with "B"!)
--> ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'': "I
HONOR my LORD!]]'' ''By '''DESTROYING YOU!'''''
--> *Impales helpless bandit*
--> ''[[BadassBoast
LORD by DESTROYING YOU!" *slays enemy* "''[[BadassBoast THERE CAN BE NO OTHER END!]]''END!]]"''

* [[NationsAsPeople Prussia]] in ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' is one of the series' few "[[WordOfGod mostly villainous]]" characters, and (rather [[WorldOfHam impressively]]) beats out most of the cast in sheer haminess.

** Ryuk wasn't exactly the most quiet villain, either. "THE SYMPTHOMS ARE STARTING!"
* In ''Manga/{{Cyborg 009}}'', [[Creator/UnshoIshizuka Von Bogoot]] was mostly as SoftspokenSadist. But his boss, Scarl, was a magnificent ham. [[Creator/NorioWakamoto Guess who voiced him]]?

** Honestly, it's easier to name the BigBad that ''aren't'' hammy. [[Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier The Winter Soldier]] is fairly low key and has barely any lines in the movie (the only time he's SuddenlyShouting, it's played for drama), [[spoiler: Alexander Pierce]] is SoftSpokenSadist and [[Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar Baron Zemo]] never raises his voice about slightly loud [[spoiler: as he's a solider on the revenge quest, he's not a cackling villain]].
** The franchise' GreaterScopeVillain Thanos hasn't had much screen time, in his scene in TheStinger of The Avengers he manages to ham without even talking. It only goes up from there when he actually gets a speaking role in Guardians Of the Galaxy.
* In the 1980's film [[Film/MastersoftheUniverse He-Man]], Frank Langella made Skeletor a Shakespearean villain with relish. He ultimately made him a force to be feared of with his performance from that of a campy villain in the cartoons.

* Shao Kahn in ''Film/MortalKombatAnnihilation'' is hammy whenever it's possible, [[PunctuatedForEmphasis and It! Is! GLORIOUS!]]
* [[Creator/JohnHurt Chancellor Adam Sutler]] in ''Film/VForVendetta'' cranks up the ham dial progressively [[VillainousBreakdown as the country gets out of his fists]].
* Film/TheHobbit has [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Smaug]], much like in the [[Literature/TheHobbit source material]]. Along with overly dramatic dialogue lifted from the book, he's voiced by Creator/BenedictCumberbatch. Going further than book he manages to some theatrical gestures, despite being a giant snake like creature with no hands, like CirclingMonologue and shows of the sheer scope of his massive most showoffy way he can.

* The main villian in ''Literature/FancyApartments'' is [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Vrotheus the Vile]], who hams up any line he can. It's hard to tell if that's his nature, or if he just likes being dramatic. Oddly enough, he still seems a serious threat despite it.

* ''Series/HorribleHistories'': Portrays historical villains this way occasionally, especially Caligula. Phillip II of Spain has his hammy moments too.

** Electro has a HairTriggerTemper on account of his PowerIncontinence and can instantly be prompted into a violent rampage by anyone [[BerserkButton calling him Max]] ([[ThatManIsDead his name before transformation]]). On some level, he's kind of amusing, but it's also pretty distrubing given his clear SanitySlippage.

* As said above, a requirement for any ''Film/{{Batman}}'' movie villain. Possible aversions are from Film/TheDarkKnightSaga: Ra's al Ghul is suave and subdued, and Two-Face is dead serious, particularly compared to SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker.

* Lord Ghirahim in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'', aka Mr. Furious! OUTRAGED! SICK WITH ANGER!! Zant from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' is similarly hammy, especially during his VillainousBreakdown. [[BigBad Ganon]] is also somewhat hammy ([[PigMan literally, in certain situations]]), but he's rather restrained compared to the other two.

** Fawful in the MarioAndLuigi series is a hammy lunatic who speaks in the most over the top way possible. Him being the villain in Bowser's Inside Story and being against the aforementioned Bowser is one of the reasons it's seen as so funny.
