* Old Snake in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots'', complete with SkywardScream. "liquiiid!" Also, [[LargeHam Liquid Snake]] in [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid The Twin Snakes]]. He seems to have graduated top of his class from the [[WilliamShatner William Shatner School of Acting]]. Also from Metal Gear Solid 4 is Liquid Ocelot, who really enjoys clenching his fist whenever he can.

* ''Nobody'' in Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure will ever turn down the chance to make an overly dramatic pose when hamming it up. Infamously, Caesar and Joseph from Battle Tendency are very prone to this.

* In ''Theatre/ThePlayThatGoesWrong'', some of the cast of ''The Murder at Havisham Manor'' have a tendency to indulge in this, with Max and Sandra being the worst offenders.



* Megumi Kitaniji of TheWorldEndsWithYou has something of a flair for this, as seen in two of [[http://www.spriters-resource.com/resources/sheets/47/50297.png his dialogue sprites]]. [[spoiler: Turns out later he's not just gesturing, he's checking the timer on his palm, just like the one the Players have.]]

Added DiffLines:

* In his autobiography, Creator/SpikeMilligan recalls auditioning for military talent shows during WW2, and marvelled at the eternal optimism of men with limited talent who genuinely believed their singing, comedy or acting talent would entertain and raise morale for their fellows. He was taken with the tendency of really bad singers, with the stage presence of planks of wood, to milk the giant cow to add pathos or dramatic intensity to whatever ballad they were murdering.
