** Bizarrely, Christopher Guest's acting doesn't [[Film/ThisIsSpinalTap go to eleven]]. "And certainly NOT TO FIFTY!"

* As an AffectionateParody and satire of both opera in general and ''Literature/ThePhantomOfTheOpera'' specifically, Creator/TerryPratchett's Literature/{{Discworld}} novel ''Maskerade'' qualifies. Discworld is a fairly hammy place to be in any case, but basically every trope from opera is taken and [[UpToEleven hammed up massively]]. This includes, among other things, a character who can sing in harmony with herself, a grandiose, emotional aria whose actual lyrical content is along the lines of "This damn door sticks! It sticks no matter what I do!" and the villain's death scene, which was played in true operatic style, right down to the [[spoiler:sword being between his arm and his chest, rather than actually cutting him. He dies anyway, from the sheer density of ham involved in opera.]] Literally -- he's so caught up he doesn't realize it's fake until it's too late.
* Creator/JackChalker's ''DancingGods'' books pretty much embody this, with everything but everything governed by THE RULES to ensure proper [[HeroicFantasy Swords And Sorcery]] action.

** Cortana has her moments, but in ''Halo 3'' she digs into the ham for all that it's worth.

** Though he pales a bit compared with the other characters of the game, the Arbiter is a serious ham in his own right.
** The Ship Master Rtas 'Vadum only has a loud ham voice and a calm ham voice, and nothing else.

* To say that ''Undertale'' is filled with hammy, scenery-chewing moments would be an understatement. Nearly ''every'' character you encounter is super hammy, to the point of self-parody:

**The Mad Dummy:
--> " HEY GUYS! Dummies. Dummies! DUMMIES! Remember how I said NOT to shoot at me? Well... FAILURES! YOU'RE FIRED! YOU'RE ALL BEING REPLACED!!! Hahaha. Hahaha! HAHAHA!"
**Don't forget THE GREAT PAPYRUS!
**hOI!!!!!! I'M tEMMIE!!!!


Added DiffLines:

* Since the release of VideoGame/Undertale, many fans have added voice acting. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mSw0mV0jbdo This rendition of the Mad Dummy]] is fantastically overacted and captures the Dummy's [[NoIndoorVoice lack of an indoor voice]] perfectly.

** Most abridged series enhance the ham, or even introduce ham where there wasn't any, for laughs. When the original material was already hammy to begin with, the results can be astounding.
