Added DiffLines:

* ''Creator/FourKidsEntertainment'' English dubs are this. While their localization and licensing have been heavily criticized for their heavy censorship, it is generally agreed that the voice acting within 4Kids is seen as relatively high quality. In particular, Creator/DanGreen's name has become an internet meme thanks to his grandiose voice acting of Yami Yugi in the Manga/YuGiOh series. It should also be noted that many of the voice actors were paid ''higher'' than the typical union rates for anime voice work, hence why the voice actors were able to pull off such good performances despite the company's reputation of censorship.

* ''AudioPlay/DiabolikLovers'': The anime itself is incredibly bad in terms of the sadomaschoism and the misogynist nature of the series. That being said, it is generally agreed that the anime would have been less enjoyable if it wasn't the overly dramatic voice acting in the English dub, particularly Creator/ChrisPatton's Ayato and Creator/MaggieFlecknoe's Yui.

That being said, it is generally agreed that the anime would have been less enjoyable if it wasn't for the overly dramatic voice acting in the English dub, particularly Creator/ChrisPatton's Ayato and Creator/MaggieFlecknoe's Yui.Yui. Given that ''Creator/SentaiFilmworks'' seems to have licensed it for contractual reasons, and the general reputation of the series, they seemed to have put as much intentional ham as they could knowing it's not exactly an arthouse masterpiece.
* The English dub of ''Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt'' is a glorious slab of glazed ham exactly for this reason. Not because it's a bad series, far from it, but given its reveling in some of the most suggestive dialogue and grossout humour this side of ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', they're all clearly having a blast, especially the two leads who take all the double-entendres and [[ClusterFBomb filthy lines of dialogue]] coming from the angelic divas as passionately as they can.
* This seems to be the ''Creator/{{Funimation}}'' staff's method for dubbing [[PantyFighter fanservice-heavy anime]]. Knowing the audience isn't exactly hear for high drama, the actresses tend to indulge in the over the top sleaze and have fun with it.

* OrsonWelles as Unicron in ''WesternAnimation/TransformersTheMovie''. His final performance may have been voice-only in a rather silly kids' show [[TheMovie movie]], but ''damn'' if it wasn't the hammiest thing since pig roasts. Notably, being a PlanetEater, Unicron ''[[{{Pun}} actually chews on the scenery]]''.

* Creator/MaxVonSydow as Ming in the ''Film/FlashGordon'' movie. A touch more restrained than many on this list, but definitely having fun with the part, and Topol as Zarkov is, ironically, a Jewish ham.

* Did you think Creator/KevinSpacey as Lex Luthor in (the largely percieved dissapointing) ''Film/SupermanReturns'' would phone in a subdued performance? [[MemeticMutation WRONG!]]

* ''Music/{{Aaliyah}}'', Stuart Townsend and Vincent Perez all seem fully aware of how silly ''Film/QueenOfTheDamned'' is, and they all look like they're having a great time chewing on the scenery. Townsend and Aaliyah in particular really go to town with it, making ridiculous overblown gestures and milking relatively mundane lines to the point where it's damn near hilarious.

* ''Film/AlienResurrection'' is often considered one of the sillier entries in the {{Franchise/Alien}} franchise, and has Creator/RonPerlman, J.E. Freeman and Brad Dourif invoking this trope.

* In ''Film/JupiterAscending'', Eddie Redmayne clearly enjoys himself as Balem, with his borderline CampGay demeanor and his SuddenlyShouting moments. All three of the Abrasax siblings are hammy in their own way - Balem's rage is certainly matched by [[Creator/TuppenceMiddleton Kalique's]] seductive pout and [[Creator/DouglasBooth Titus']] earnest deceit.

* The entire cast of ''GilligansIsland'' was painfully aware of the show's caliber, and often turned to this trope for solace. Jim Backus still managed to stand out.

* ''Franchise/StarWars'' gives us Ian [=McDiarmid=]'s [[EvilIsCool performance]] as [[MagnificentBastard Emperor Palpatine]], even in the ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'', which earned a much better critical reception than the prequels later did. [=McDiarmid=] pulled off the impressive feat of securing ''three more blockbuster film roles'' with a LargeHam performance in that film. In the prequels, he was clearly having a grand old time playing a [[ChewingTheScenery scenery-chewing]], EvilOverlord with [[MemeticMutation UNLIMITED POWAAAAAAH]]. He not only gained critical acclaim for his performance as Palpatine, but he is remembered as having perhaps the best performance in the entire prequel trilogy. It helps that, although the prequels as a whole aren't too well received, Ian ''is'' genuinely [[TookTheBadFilmSeriously fond of his character and thus plays him the best way possible.]]

* The [[{{Film/Spawn}} film adaption]] of ''Film/{{Spawn}}'' is considered lackluster at best, with a weak story and special effects that looked old when it was released in the 90's. Among all this however is JohnLeguizamo, who seemed to realize what he was acting in, and hammed up his scene stealing role as The Clown/The Violator.

** [[Creator/RobertCarlyle]] manages the rare feat of being both this ''and'' TookTheBadFilmSeriously due to the dual nature of his character Rumplestiltskin. One moment he's giving a heart wrenching performance as a tragic villain, only for him to chew the scenery for all it's worth as the Dark One in the very next scene.
