* ''Film/MommieDearest'' is infamous for Faye Dunaway gobbling up scenery as a mean and {{abusive|parents}} Joan Crawford. Once the daughter grows up, Diana Scarwid tries to overact as much as Dunaway, ranging [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5NOmw_kzrJQ from]] "TranquilFury" to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqM1ttqNA9k "screaming her lungs out"]].

* ''Film/FlashGordon'', especially the 1980s movie. Pick any scene with more than one character on screen. No exceptions, especially with [[Creator/BrianBlessed Mr. Ham himself]].

* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsOfColdSteel II'', [[TheHero Rean Schwarzer]] engages in this with [[TheRival Crow Armbrust]] in their respective [[HumongousMecha Divine Knights]] where while they're about to fight one another, they're also trying to ''out-ham'' one another. By the time the fight was over, their classmates mocked them for being so over-the-top.
-->'''Crow:''' I won't let anyone interfere! This is going to be our final battle!
-->'''Rean:''' That's exactly how I want it to be! We'll fight until we can fight no more... until our strength runs dry and our souls burn out! (cue epic screaming from the both of them)

** The [[Recap/DoctorWho2015CSTheHusbandsOfRiverSong 2015 Christmas Special]]: River Song, the 12th Doctor, and a constantly-shouting Hydroflax (even when he's just a head in a sack). ''Gloriously'' over the top. Special note of the Doctor's BiggerOnTheInside speech when River doesn't know yet who he is and they enter the TARDIS, and he describes how he thinks such a speech really should go.

* Really, any "good" match. ProfessionalWrestling is build on a solid foundation of PURE HAM. Promo confrontations between feuding wrestlers literally ''are'' an undiluted form of this trope. And in the setups to multi-man matches like the Elimination Chamber or Money In The Bank, you'll inevitably get a scene where every participant in the match comes out to cut a promo at the same time.

* The Silver Shroud questline in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' allows the otherwise stoic [[PlayerCharacter Sole Survivor]] to pretend to be RadioDrama crimefighter the Silver Shroud and ham it up as a [[TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks golden age]] AntiHero. But it's only in the ''Automatron'' DLC, where [[ArcVillain the Mechanist]], who has also taken up the identity of a comic book character, will acknowledge the Sole Survivor as the Silver Shroud, allowing the two to engage in gloriously hammy exchanges.

* In a recorded production of ''JekyllAndHyde'' starring Creator/DavidHasselhoff as the eponymous character(s), he's at his highest level of ham in the climactic song "Confrontation". Why is that an example of this trope? Because Jekyll and Hyde both sing that song. That's right, The Hoff can have Ham-to-Ham Combat with [[CrazyAwesome HIMSELF]].

** In the first movie where Barbossa and Jack Sparrow face off with each other, and really, whenever they share a scene at any time in the film trilogy.
** By the third movie, pretty much [[WorldOfHam everyone is trying to out-ham the other]], including Creator/HansZimmer, the sound-track composer.
** Which makes perfect sense that the next film's focus is around Jack and Barbossa. Because like the first film proved, how can one not have fun watching Johnny Depp and Geoffrey Rush, two of the finest actors alive, having a ham contest in pirate garb and dialogue?
