ThereAreNoGirlsOnTheInternet. [[LargeHam Hams]], on the other hand...

----
* ''' HELLO MY LOYAL SUBSCRIBERS! THIS IS [[PhantomSavage PHANTOMSAVAGE]] AND WELCOME BACK TO ''' (insert LP here)
* ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'':
** Yami/Pharaoh certainly qualifies.
--->"I can do anything I want, because I'm voiced by [[FourKidsEntertainment DAN GREEN]]!"
--->"'''ATTENTION DUELISTS! MY HAIR HAS BECOME AN INTERNET PHENOMENON!'''"
** And then we have Marik.
--->"Foolish fools! There are no women in Yu-Gi-Oh! There are only extremely girly men! And I am the most girly of them all!"
* ''DrHorriblesSingAlongBlog'':
** Nathan Fillion puts the "ham" in Captain Hammer. But he's playing a smarmy, self-absorbed superhero caricature--it would be ''impossible'' to portray the character any other way. Fillion remarked that it was the only time in his career a director had to tell him to be ''more'' of a ham.
---> '''Captain Hammer''' (singing while giving Dr. Horrible the finger): "Everyone's a hero in their ''WAAAAAAAY''?!?"
** Doctor Horrible himself becomes Doctor ''Ham''ible in the last act, during the song "Slipping", and Act II - ''Brand New Day'' is a delicious slice of ham.
* ''WebVideo/TheTimeGuys'' uses this for its fair share of characters, most notably Christopher Columbus, [[{{Determinator}} Caveman in Episode III]], and Alexander the Great [[spoiler: at Knocken]].
* O'Malley from ''RedVsBlue'' may very well be the largest ham in the history of Machinima.
--> "Now be careful, mustn't give away our position with maniacal laughter!"
--> "Even though what I want is something frightening! WHAT I WANT is something PURE EVIL, AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!"
** O'Malley's the undisputed king of this in Red vs. Blue, but fellow villain Wyoming is no slouch, and The Director shows shades of this as well at times.
--> "I don't give a DAMN about you and your committee!"
* Strong Bad from ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner''. In VideoGame/StrongBadsCoolGameForAttractivePeople, when [[spoiler: Dadgeresque, AKA Senor Cardgage, "died"]], and Dangeresque, AKA Strong Bad, sounded like his head was about to blow off his body. This was just one of his many instances of hamminess, however.
-->'''Strong Bad''': "Well, I heard a techno song one time that went like, 'Doom doom doom doom', and then this other part came in and it was like, 'Dudalado! Dudalado! Dudalado! Dudalado!' And there's always this high-pitched noise, you know, like a siren that's like, 'DOO-DA-DA-DIDDLE!! DOO-DA-DA-DIDDLE!!!' And then there's the obligatory old movie quote from some sci-fi movie, it's like, 'The system is down! DOO-DA-DA-DIDDLE!!! DOO-DA-DA-DIDDLE!!!!'"
-->'''Strong Bad''': "WHY? WHY DO MY THIRTY-YEAR-OLD ELECTRONICS KEEP BREAKING ON ME???"
** '''''TROGDOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOR!!!!'''''
* ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'':
** Liam Black is this mixed with {{Narm}}. Candescence, the character's handler, stated this was very intentional (though they did [[OldShame regret it in hindsight.]])
---> "Oh and a girl with silky brown hair and a '''FUCKING LASER'''!"
---> "Then the person threatening James... '''IS YOU!''"
** This is one of the handler Ragged Druid's trademarks, along with SmallNameBigEgo and DontExplainTheJoke.
** Jimmy Brennan of v4 is also particularly hammy, alongside [[ClusterFBomb having a ridiculously huge potty mouth]].
--->
* The ''{{lonelygirl15}}'' recurring villain Ted [=McKinley=] (aka [[FanNickname PharmaGuy]]), especially in his first appearance.
* ''WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd'' alternates between somewhat constrained and really exaggerated UnstoppableRage (particularly during rants, and sometimes even silent, like his Kaiju impersonation during the Godzilla video).
--> "I'm the LORD of the HARVEST!"
--> '''BRING IT DOWN, BRING IT DOWN!"'''
* While on the subject of web reviewers, [[WorldOfHam just about anyone on]] ''Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses'' qualifies.
** Of course, there is WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic himself (pictured). But Creator/DougWalker's hamminess really shines as [[WebVideo/BumReviews Chester A. Bum.]]
*** In his review of [[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/thatguywiththeglasses/nostalgia-critic/34338-ponyo Ponyo]] this becomes [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GbWpSklVzm4 literal ham]]
** [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony]] can serve up the ham, especially as Dr. Insano and [[Film/BattlefieldEarth Terl]] (already discussed [[LargeHam/{{Film}} in the original]]). [[WebVideo/TheAngryJoeShow Angry Joe]] can be as passionate as his name suggests and [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]] has his moments too, [[CatchPhrase for HE is A MAN!]], and as of October 2012 Lewis also has [[HorrorHost Longbox of the Ham]].
*** Proving it's genetic, Linkara's dad as Whately in the ''Silent Hill: The Grinning Man'' review, in a wig that wouldn't look out of place in Spinal Tap, and it is glorious.
** Out of the women on the site, WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick's {{sidekick}} Nella is the one who revels in ham delightfully.
--> For Side-WebVideo/{{Kickassia}}! And {{geek}}ery! [Races away bearing a sword.]
** Elisa, as Dr. Tease and The Makeover Fairy, can hold her own too and even the Chick has a fair amount of moments.
*** To see Elisa really bringing home the ham, [[VampireVords ve don't need to search further than ze]] [[WebVideo/VampireReviews Maven of the Eventide]].
*** Speaking of vampires, ObscurusLupa already gets carried away in her videos and does hammy guest voice work for other reviewers. But her impression of Radu from ''{{Subspecies}}'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QeRFdhL1Awk is so gloriously over the top]] [[http://blip.tv/OLPresents/rr-visitors-from-outer-space-6489811 Lupa opted to give Radu his own show!]]
*** "The Dark Nella Saga" shows that all of Team [=NChick=] can gleefully ham it up like crazy, though Nella and Elisa remain the champions.
*** [[http://blip.tv/nostalgia-chick/nostalgia-chick-the-little-mermaid-5360667 The Chick's review]] for ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' provides great ''silent'' hamming from Nella!
** While not a reviewer, Bhargav "Bargo" Dronamraju could very easily be the hammiest on the site.
---> "A sci-fi movie so terrible it makes my nipples TINGLE with FEAR! [...] [[BigYes YYYES!]] ''[[Film/BattlefieldEarth BATTLEFIELD EARRRRTH!!!]]''"
** Nowhere are they hammier, however, than during the MassivelyMultiplayerCrossover that is ''WebVideo/{{Kickassia}}''. [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony]] exemplifies this trope to an awesome degree. [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]] also deserves special mention for an extremely silly scene with WebVideo/MarzGurl.
--> "Take comfort in my masculine arms!"
** They get it on again on ''WebVideo/SuburbanKnights''. Especially WebVideo/{{Phelous}} as [[Film/TheNeverEndingStory the Rockbiter]] and [[WebVideo/PawDugan Paw]] as [[Film/DungeonsAndDragons Profion]] (a character well discussed in the [[LargeHam/{{Film}} Film page]]).
** ''WebVideo/ToBoldlyFlee'' continued along the same path, with special mention to antagonists Spoony\T̶e̶r̶l̶ [[WritingAroundTrademarks Turrell]], Rob\P̶a̶l̶p̶a̶t̶i̶n̶e̶ [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed The Executor]] and Doug[[Franchise/{{Superman}} Zod]].
** WebVideo/{{Phelous}} in general, especially when he starts growling his words.
** WebVideo/DiamandaHagan could easily give Nella a run for her money. Ham-off away!
** The UnCancelled Nostalgia Critic episodes include the two actors hired for ''WebVideo/DemoReel'', Malcolm and Rachel. They also ham up like there's no tomorrow, best case so far being in the ''Film/SonOfTheMask'' review, where they are the Devil and his daughter.
*** After Rachel left before an entire month of hammy ''Creator/NicolasCage'' movies, she was replaced by Tamra in NC's ''Movie/TheWickerMan'' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vj_CRnwJTk8 review]], and quickly shown she was a great and hammy replacement.
* Mille Chanteau of ''IlivaisX'' is the ''queen'' of ham. If she's in battle, it's all but guaranteed anything she says is an epic speech of some kind, and it's not limited to then either. Of course, there's also Seyne (that comes with being a [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWars Sanger Zonvolt]] {{Expy}} though), most of the [[ElementalPowers GEKICOM]] and [[CombiningMecha STRUQ]] members, hell, even [[BrokenBird Iri]][[ReiClone ana]] has her moments.
* Bottom of ''WebVideo/WormtoothNation'' hams it up in every scene. This is understandable since he is based on the character of the same name from ''AMidsummerNightsDream''.
* ''ThereWillBeBrawl'' is a series that plays {{melodrama}} so straight that it's almost a parody, so this kind of acting is a requirement. [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Ganondorf]] and [[VideoGame/WarioLand Wario]] (played by Ham extraordinaire Kyle Hebert) deliver.
* "And now, a DramaticReading of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9NmbljTGqCg a real break up letter from a real person...]]"
* [[http://baumanletters.ytmnd.com/ "THIS is TRUE LUNACY!"]]
* ''AVeryPotterMusical'' has a larger than normal quotient of these.
** Snape, Draco, and Voldemort all qualify, with Snape being the most {{egregious}} example by far. Dumbledore is up there as well, especially when he starts lapsing into a Yiddish accent. Really, half of the play is the actors all [[HamToHamCombat trying to out-ham each other]]... which doesn't detract from it at all.
* Then there is Heart from ''MeAndMyDick''.
* ''ImAMarvelAndImADC'': [[NormanOsborn Green Goblin]] (who's also a big fan of Willem *[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VgLd26dxDRg DAFOE!]]*'s performance) and {{Deadpool}}. {{Thor}}, to an extent... and there's Comicbook/GhostRider [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=11EgDKxjOm0 doing an homage]] to [[NicolasCage the ham who portrayed him]].
* In ''GaiaOnline'':
** Pretty much everything [[spoiler: Labtech X]] says.
** Then we have JOHNNY GAMBINO.
---> "[[EvilLaugh BWAHAHAHA!]]"
** Who could forget the Overseer?
---> "[[NakedPeopleAreFunny FEELS GOOD MAN!]]"
** Rigel and Mintaka are beginning to show hints of this as well.
---> "SOOOO FABULOUS!"
* Mugal in the FanFilm ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}} vs the Kaiju Killer''.
--> "I SAID PICK IT UP!"
* "[[WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged This is gonna be my BEST... DAY... EVER!]]"
* LetsPlay/{{Raocow}} deserves mention as well.
--> "I GOT A '''[[VideoGame/AnUntitledStory HEART!]]'''"
--> "JUMP HEIGHT! '''UPGRADED!!!!'''"
* Butterfree in Box of Danger's ''WebVideo/PokemonTheAbridgedSeries''. Also counts as MemeticBadass.
* Raye/Sailor Mars in ''WebVideo/SailorMoonAbridged''.
-->'''Raye/Sailor Mars:''' IT'S THE LAST TRAIN, ONE WAY TRACK TO HELL!
** Also, Zoycite, Queen Beryl, Mina/Sailor Venus, Molly, and just about every character that KrisRix plays other than Amy.
--->'''Mina/Sailor Venus:''' [[BigEntrance HELLO! I'm up here!]] [[ValleyGirl Look at, like, my flowing long locks! Aren't you excited? Guys, you don't look excited. You totally should be excited!]]
** Pretty much [[WorldOfHam everyone]] in Sailor Moon Abridged... [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg but Amy]]. Well, except for in the {{Anime/Pokemon}} mash-up [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XOiG4nv1_ds episode.]]
--->'''Amy/Sailor Mercury:''' It's a change you cannot resist. [[SoundEffectBleep [BLEEP] ]]ALL YOU CREATIONISTS!
* DoctorSteel goes through a ''lot'' of [[ChewingTheScenery scenery]]; consciously PlayedForLaughs.
* Creator/SeanMalstrom, as exhibited in [[http://malstrom.50webs.com/glossary.htm this blog piece]]:
-->"'''Malstrom'''- World-wide sex symbol to women. When a new article appears, his mailbox gets flooded by the ladies demanding passion from him. "A business article on video games? That is so hot!" they squeal. Each Malstrom article also gains him a million dollars from jet-sitting super secret investors. Malstrom is also prone to self-delusions. ("Hey," he says, "if you are going to have delusions, might as well go for the really satisfying ones!")"
* Many, ''many'' {{Dramatic Reading}}s, but Tropers/ManWithoutABody's epic readings of ''AtlantaNights'', ''Fanfic/MyInnerLife'', ''Fanfic/ThirtyHs'', and other classics of SoBadItsGood particularly come to mind.
* InternetPersonalityVangelus, reviewer of {{Transformers}} and Franchise/KamenRider toys alike. Likewise, his alter-ego ''TheMilkDaddy''.
--> "YOU'RE ABOUT A THREE MISSISSIPPI COUNT AWAY FROM THE WRONG SIDE OF A RAPE, BROTHER."
* Most of the cast of ''[[GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse The Golden Age]]''. Of course, the fact that it was entitled the [[TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] was kind of your first clue. Not too subtle, TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks.
* If you thought the line "I will now enjoy my fruit snack." couldn't be said in a hammy way, you need to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bu56cDhLxPM change your opinion right now.]]
* "[[CatchPhrase Hey]] [[OpeningNarration everybody]], [[OnceAnEpisode it]]'s {{LetsPlay/Chuggaaconroy}}!"
* Pipes! of the LetsPlay/FreelanceAstronauts. "Whenever the mic input volume meter jumps up into the red, I know I've told a good joke."
* These mad scientists in ''LenoreTheCuteLittleDeadGirl''. [[http://youtube/QNteJp2u1ng]]
* Video game music podcast NitroGameInjection has Larry Oji. With him, EVERY episode is sponsored by ham.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/user/ATLAHWorldwide James David Manning]].
* '''[[WebVideo/EpicMealTime EPIC MEAL TIME!]]''' It just wouldn't be EMT without ham. And bacon strips. And bacon strips. [[OverlyLongGag And bacon strips...]]
* StupidMarioBrothers has:
** Any role played by Richard (Mario)
** Wario ''is'' this trope in earlier seasons, and has become one again after season three where he was a [[spoiler:BigBad]].
** VideoGame/MaxPayne in his appearances.
* Ghost of Radio/TrueCapitalist Radio is a massive ham(bone) thanks to his HairTriggerTemper, infinite number of {{Berserk Button}}s and a large number of trolls calling in.
* Just about [[WorldOfHam ''everyone'']] gets in on this at some point in ShinyObjectsVideos.
* [[SonicForHire ''Frying and Buying'']]
* Rowdy C on WebVideo/TVTrash.
* Both Creator/{{Egoraptor}} and WebVideo/JonTron have a good amount of ham in their works, so quite naturally the WebVideo/GameGrumps can ham things up, for instance breaking into song at quite a few moments and interacting with Barry for the CaptionHumor.
* Most Volus on ''Roleplay/CerberusDailyNews'' are this by default. But the standout case would have to be the duo of Jorgal Dwick and Terrorbyte. [[http://www.cerberusdailynews.com/valiant/forum/board/thread/?t=1139 example]]
* [[Creator/TheCynicalBrit TotalBiscuit]] is a natural ham to begin with, so you can probably imagine how things get any time something excites him.
* '''"[[RidiculouslyCuteCritter I'M]] [[BravestWarriors CATBUG]]!"'''
** His voice actor ''is'' 6 going on 7, after all.
* '''"[[WebVideo/EpicRapBattlesOfHistory EPIC! RAP! BATTLESOFHISTORY!!!]]"'''
* Everyone who is cartoonified in ''WebVideo/TheCartoonMan'' saga.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/GhettoNN Daym Drops]], providing '''[[CatchPhrase SUPER OFFICIAL]]''' fast food reviews with even more ham than the food itself contains (which admittedly is not hard, since the food usually contains [[BaconAddiction bacon]], not ham). He once did a video in his normal voice, just to prove he actually has one.
* While Cecil from ''Podcast/WelcomeToNightVale'' has his moments, perhaps the best Night Valean example comes from Jackson Publick's Hiram Mcdaniels. Well, two out of five, anyway.
--> '''Green Head:''' '''''Do you hear the beating of my terrible wings? Do you feel the flames lick at the corners of a life you once thought belonged to you?'''''
--> '''Purple Head:''' '''''AND YOU WILL NEVER HEAR IT! ITíS A SECRET! AND BURIED IN A SECRET PLACE!'''''
* Big personalities are a common sight at WebOriginal/AwesomeGamesDoneQuick. For example, the acting in the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=7EBmJZVHOxM#t=1305 2013 Final Fantasy IX run]] is a hilarious cross between LargeHam and BadBadActing.
* Aspiring voice actress [[https://www.youtube.com/user/brizzyvoices Brizzy Voices]], [[ManOfAThousandVoices woman of a thousand voices]], and [[https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.179410748927717.1073741829.167099453492180&type=1 even]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lx1oXIv6Ks8 more]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d64K9Msv0Dg facial]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pwvOz71fTbM expressions]].
* The BigBad of ''WebAnimation/DusksDawn''admits to enjoying himself while he casts disaster on Ponyville, and seems to be the most energetic actor. This isn't saying a whole lot, as everyone else is stiff or unintelligible sometimes.
* [[LetsPlay/{{Yogscast}} The Yogscast provides a few]], although most members do have a degree of hamminess.
** LetsPlay/SimonLane takes the cake even by his group's standards. He takes NoIndoorVoice to the extreme, often disrupting other people's recordings because he's screaming ''from several rooms away, once setting off a car alarm outside''. Yogtowers is in an office block and a few floors off the ground.
-->'''Duncan:''' (after Simon has spent several seconds screaming in VideoGame/PropHunt) That was loud, even from the next room!
** LetsPlay/{{Sips}} enjoys hamming it up from time to time, most commonly in VideoGame/GarrysMod's Murder mode when he's DrunkOnTheDarkSide.
** LetsPlay/DuncanJones gets in on the ham whenever he does an EvilLaugh.
** LetsPlay/LewisBrindley often freaks out over the straw that broke the camel's back.
* Chonny, of ''WebVideo/{{yourchonny}}'' fame, alongside his parents...or him acting as his parents.
* Admiral Crackers of ''WebVideo/BradJonesDemoReel'' is larger than life in his mannerisms and dialog.
