* Creator/JackChalker's ''Literature/DancingGods'' books pretty much embody this, with everything but everything governed by THE RULES to ensure proper [[HeroicFantasy Swords And Sorcery]] action.

* Creator/RichardWagner, Lord High [[GratuitousGerman Kapellmeister von der]] Schinkenwelt. After all, he composed the ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iq0POBWEIuM Ride of the Valkyries]]'', [[MusicToInvadePolandTo Music to Conquer]] [[ImperialGermany Empires By]]. And his lyrics are just as [[LargeHam Hamtastic]], as in this from ''Theatre/DieWalkuere'':

* 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.

** 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:
