** Though one could argue that [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=moaW8LRusak#t=116s actual facial expressions]] ''are'' overacting for Keanu Reeves. It's all a matter of perspective...

** The ham is taken UpToEleven with ''Webanimation/RWBYChibi'', as everyone gets literally cartoonish - for instance, like the FoodFight quoted above there's a [[https://youtu.be/LqyFn9I3IVM?t=1m32s pillow fight]] . The bad guys in particular go from menacing to CardCarryingVillain.
-->'''Cinder''': https://youtu.be/NlO9dymswPM?t=2m34s Quiet! I need to concentrate! This is a very delicate procedure. With the addition of this evil candle, voila! One deliciously evil cake, ready to explode! Any questions?]]

* 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.

* NaziGermany, especially in Film/TriumphOfTheWill, and because Hitler deliberately ate tons of Wagnerian ham (and some Nietzsche) for his propaganda techniques. In democratic countries you politely say hello; in the Reich you shout "HEIL HITLER!!! HEIL MEIN FÜHRER! SIEG HEIL! DEUTSCHLAND ÜBER ALLES! FÜR DAS VATERLAND!" as loud as possible. All speeches are as much as ostentatious theatrical rants of the FÜHRER praising the DESTINY OF THE ÜBERMENSCH, while [[MillionMookMarch marches of million hardened jackboots]] and [[TankGoodness supersized castles-on-tracks]] crack the earth itself, and with SigilSpam of swastikas, Imperial Eagles and generally Neoclassical aesthetics on steroid overdose. Weapons design is based on BiggerIsBetter (see also: Panzer tanks, the Schwerer Gustav artillery etc) and everyone is expected to express in the most ostentatious manner their sorm of LOYALTY to the FÜHRER and the GLORY of the ÜBERMENSCH to CONQUER first EUROPA, tomorrow THE WORLD!!!

* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan''. It doesn't matter whether you're five or 50 feet away. Everyone who isn't [[TheStoic a stoic]] generally shout and scream at one another or themselves like their blood consists of sugar, Red Bull and cocaine.

* Pokemon's anime, while capable of being hammy, generally does not reach this level. The same cannot be said of ''Anime/PokemonGenerations'', where they had a lot less time to devote to things and must thus show off characters quickly. Quickly in their case means loads and loads of HAM! Characters ROAR at each other before battles, old sages BELLOW wise phrases into the sky from atop castles, dastardly plans are given while SHOUTING. Notably Episodes 3, 8, and 13, though you can see the HAM in other episodes.

** This especially applies during Creator/TomBaker's era as the Doctor. Part of this was because the two genres that formed the bulk of his tenure were GothicHorror and witty character-focused comedy, both of which reward unsubtle characterisation. Mostly it was because he was such a catastrophically powerful ham black hole that he would (and occasionally did) derail the show if he didn't have an outrageous and three-dimensional supporting cast to provide some balance. Creator/RobertHolmes has gone on record as saying that the writers had to spend a lot of time and effort providing these for him, and if Tom hadn't been so over the top, the era wouldn't have been one of the show's characterisation high points. The wilder he gets, the wilder everyone else gets, culminating in "The Horns of Nimon" where the entire cast reaches swivel-eyed {{panto}} levels of acting (and Tom ''still'' blows everyone else off-screen without making a visible effort).

** The Italian dub was ''forced'' to take it UpToEleven: [[{{Woolseyism}} to convey for Italian viewers the same sense of mystery and awe that classical mythology, which they are all too familiar with, inspired in the culturally distant Japanese, the dub director cranked up the epicness of the dialogues, added quotes from classical Italian poems including the]] '''Literature/DivineComedy,''' [[{{Woolseyism}} and generally raised the stylistic level of all dialogues.]] The end result is one of the hammiest dubs ''in history''... And the viewers getting the sense of epicness.
