** The serial [[Recap/DoctorWhoS26E2GhostLight "Ghost Light"]] is famous for two things: its ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' level of incomprehensibility, and the sheer level of glorious over-acting by every. single. cast. member. Even the extras. Somehow, though, it manages to be utterly awesome and a firm fan-favorite.

* Dante vs. Agnus before their fight in ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry 4''. A bizarre in-universe example, complete with stage lights and noticeably more poetic dialogue than usual. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ySY5YMoBp7c It really has to be seen.]] The fight just happens to be on the stage of an opera house. Dante decides to behave accordingly, and Agnus follows. The people running the stage lights must still be there and help, possibly for fear of evisceration.

** Averted, surprisingly, in "The Underwater Menace". The normally quite over-the-top Creator/PatrickTroughton prepares to go up against the incarnation of EvilIsHammy in the form of Professor "Noffink in zuh VORLD can SHTOP ME NOOOW!!" Zaroff... and scales his performance right down so he manages to upstage Zaroff by using his own ham against him. This is something his Doctor tended to do a lot -- only ramping up the drama against a hammy villain if it was as part of a bluff, or when he's completely losing his cool at the end of "The War Games".

** Tom Baker is clearly having an excellent time going up against the outrageous Pirate Captain in "The Pirate Planet" in the scene that calls for him to dispense with the cutesy ObfuscatingStupidity and launch into an UnstoppableRage.
** In "The Horns of Nimon", Lalla Ward almost manages to out-ham ''Creator/TomBaker himself''. He resists the onslaught, but then, unbelievably, they are ''both'' beaten -- completely and utterly beaten -- by Graham Crowden as Soldeed. His famous [=DREEEeeeAAAAaaAaAAAAms of CONquest=] are only the icing on the cake. He overacts so outrageously that he manages to [[{{Corpsing}} corpse]] during his own death scene and it was still put in because it wasn't breaking character.

** "The Mark of the Rani" has a three-way ham-fest among Colin Baker's Doctor, Anthony Ainley's Master and Kate O'Mara's Rani, and it is glorious.
** There's a truly spectacular ham-off between Colin Baker and '''Creator/BrianBlessed''' in "The Trial of a Time Lord" (episodes 5-8). No wonder Peri (Nicola Bryant) left the show after this; it would be physically impossible to be exposed to such overwhelming hammy glory for more than five minutes without ending up either dead or pregnant.
** Colin Baker ''again'' in "Timelash" where he squares off against Paul [[Series/BlakesSeven "Avon"]] Darrow. As has been said elsewhere, the resulting combat has to be seen to be disbelieved.

** Whenever Frasier and Niles got worked up with each other was the cue for an impromptu ham-off, due in equal parts to their natural pompous demeanors, their high education levels and established familiarity with theater, opera, and musicals, and their SiblingRivalry urging them to show off by trying to outdo each other in the dramatically complex insults and long, hard-to-pronouce words departments. Also, Kelsey Grammer and David Hyde Pierce having too much fun for their own good.

** In just about every episode of ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'', Creator/WilliamShatner brings enough ham to the table to feed a small nation. But in the episode "The Doomsday Machine", he meets his match in Captain Matt Decker. Shatner wisely chose not to engage Ham-to-Ham with William Windom. His performance is for the most part very subdued, making Decker look even more deranged.

In the red corner: Avery Brooks as Ben Sisko, one of the few Starfleet captains who could give Kirk a run for his money. In the blue corner, Ron Canada as [[HoldYourHippogriffs targ-acting]] Klingon AmoralAttorney Ch'pok. Given that the judge was a Vulcan, and thus unlikely to be swayed by mere volume, presumably they were trying to intimidate each other.
** As if that wasn't ham-tastic enough, "Waltz" provides Sisko's next major competitor: former Cardassian ruler (i.e., Dominion pawn) Gul Dukat, driven insane by the loss of both his conquest of the Alpha Quadrant and his daughter, Ziyal. And just to make it an even bigger ham sandwich, hallucinations of Kira, Weyoun, and Damar take turns screwing with what's left of his mind. If they hadn't been able to escape the uninhabited planet they were stranded on, they could've feasted on their own ham for the rest of their lives.
