But, then again, would you expect anything else from Creator/GaryOldman?



* Dr. Ivo Robotnik from ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog''. ''WesternAnimation/SonicBoom'' calls him Dr. Eggman, but he's still as hammy as ever.

possible in the cartoons:
** ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog'' had Robotnik voiced by the late Long John Baldry. To say his performance left an impact on the ''Sonic'' community is [[MemeticMutation a gross understatement.]]
--> '''Dr. Robotnik''': Sonic fell for it! Tails is ours! I'll have to give myself a '''''PRRROMOTION!'''''
** ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM'' had Creator/JimCummings as the voice of Robotnik, and while his character was vastly different from the one in ''Adventures'', he still made it a habit to chew the scenery all the same.
** ''WesternAnimation/SonicBoom'', which came out long after the other two, has Creator/MikePollock reprise his role from the video games, and if you read his entry in the Video Games category above, you should have an idea of what to expect.

* Averted by Lily Weatherwax in ''Discworld/WitchesAbroad''; she's actually somewhat menacingly toned down. What makes this instance notable, though, is the way her sister, Esmerelda "Granny" Weatherwax, reacts; the very fact that Lily isn't ChewingTheScenery enrages her as much as all the damage she's done to innocent lives over the years. Lily went off to be the bad sister, leaving Esme to be the good one, but Lily spent the whole time deluding herself that she was the good one, so even though there was no doubt which sister she was, ''she never took the opportunity to enjoy it.'' To Granny, this is almost as bad as denying Esme the choice in the first place.

** To say nothing of Sideshow Bob.
* From ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', Brother Blood, Trigon, and a lot of the minor villains (notably Control Freak, Mumbo, Mad Mod, Killer Moth, and Dr. Light) are all rather hammy. Averted with the show's main BigBad, Slade, who almost never varies his voice from a very CreepyMonotone, and the Brain, season five's BigBad, who speaks through a voice synthesizer and really ''can't'' ham.
** While The Brain can't ham, Monsieur Mallah, his talking gorilla assistant, does a pretty good job of it.

* When he gets on a roll, The Monarch from ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' is the pinnacle of this trope.
** Really, the same could be said for literally ANY villain on the show and a good number of the heroic side-characters (looking at you Jonas Venture Sr. and Jr.).

* Mojo Jojo of ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls''.''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' is very hammy. He is a hammy villain on the show. He is a LargeHam. He is an example of a villainous ham.



* Despite ''WesternAnimation/ThePiratesInAnAdventureWithScientists'' being a WorldOfHam, Queen "I Hate Pirates!" Victoria manages to out-ham the heroes.[[note]]She doesn't meet the guy voiced by Creator/BrianBlessed[[/note]]
* It's almost a requirement to be a WesternAnimation/SWATKats Villain. Indeed, it would be easier to isolate which ones are not hammy.

* {{Subverted}} on ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice.'' After her plan to take over Qurac is foiled, cameras catch [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Queen Bee]] shaking her fist at the presidential palace, screaming that "Qurac will be mine!" However, she turns out to actually be [[VoluntaryShapeshifting M'gann]], disguising herself as Queen Bee so that people would know she was behind the scheme. Later when M'gann meets the real Queen Bee, she turns out to be a SoftspokenSadist who calls her performance "a bit over-the-top."

* ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' has Ricardio The Heart Guy. He's voiced by Creator/GeorgeTakei, so it's to be expected.
** Also, [[IcePerson Ice King]] and [[NoIndoorVoice Lemongrab]]. However, neither of them is as evil as Ricardio.

Added DiffLines:

* Creator/GaryBusey and Creator/TommyLeeJones completely and utterly [[HamAndCheese enjoy themselves]] as the villains of ''Film/UnderSiege''. Jones even makes a [[Series/TheMuppetShow Muppet Show]] reference ''at the climax of the film''.

Added DiffLines:

** Taken UpToEleven with ComicBook/{{Hela}} in ''Film/ThorRagnarok'' who somehow manages to out-ham pretty much all the MCU villains before her. Constantly prone to [[BadassBoast Badass Boasts]] and EvilGloating, she likes to announce to everyone within earshot that she is the '''''Goddess of Death''''' at every single available opportunity, and [[SexyWalk saunters around]] Asgard acting like everywhere is her own personal catwalk. Even her fighting style has an inherent and entertaining flair for the dramatic.

* The ''ProfessorLayton'' series isn't exactly a WorldOfHam, often going with one hammed line per game, but it is ALWAYS said by a villain.
