[[caption-width-right:250:When it comes to hamminess, Robotnik really is in a position to [[MemeticMutation give himself a promotion]].]]
->"You dumb bots wouldn't know success if it bit you on the ''[[UnusualEuphemism bumper]]''! While ''I''... the ''baron'' of ''badness''... the ''knight'' of ''[[PerfectlyCromulentWord nastiosity]]''... am on the brink of my ''greatest'' success!"
-->-- '''[[CardCarryingVillain Dr. Ivo Robotnik]]''', from ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog''

Subpages:
* LargeHam/{{Disney}}
----
* Captain Planet and the eco-villains in ''WesternAnimation/CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers''.
* Lemongrab, from ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime''. Sweet mother of Glob, Lemongrab. What is his first line in the show, and the first thing he says when he enters the Candy Castle? "This castle is... in... unacceptabllle... CONDITIIION! UNACCEPTABLLLEEE!!!" Though many, if not most, of the characters in ''Adventure Time'' are large hams, our pal Lemongrab takes the cake as the largest ham, thanks to his shrill, high-pitched, constantly shrieking voice, unnecessary charisma, and sheer, undiluted rage towards everything that even remotely disagrees with him.
** Ice King, anyone?
-->'''Ice King:''' I'm taunting you! ''PSYCHOLOGICALLY!''
** MAGIC MAAAAAAANN!
* In ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog'', Long John Baldry did a fantastic portrayal of Dr. Robotnik this way. Here are a few choice lines:
** "Sonic is trapped in there! And the rest of Mobius is ''out here!'' Ah-ha-ha-ha-ha! And ''it's mine!'' IT'S MINE! All mine! '''ALL ''MINE!!!'''''"
*** [[LampshadeHanging "Did I say that already?"]]
** "'''[[RantInducingSlight HOW]] ''[[WhoDares DARE]]'' ANYONE ON MOBIUS LAUGH AT THE GREAT DR. ROBOTNIK?!?!?!''' No one makes fun of me! '''NO ONE!''' ''(throws comic to the ground)'' Whoever's responsible for this outrage will be my first prisoner! ''(jumps into the air)'' '''[[WhoWritesThisCrap BRING ME THE VILE CREATURE WHO DREW THIS CARTOON!!!]]'''"
** "Sonic fell for it! Tails is ours! I'll have to give myself a '''Prrrromotion!'''"
** "Snoo[[WebAnimation/YouTubePoop PING]][[MemeticMutation AS]] usual, I seeeeee..."
** Basically, his {{Villainous Breakdown}}s. Done ''spectacularly'' in the episode "Sonic Gets Thrashed":
--> "'''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis IIII! HAAATE! THAAAT! HEEEEEDGEHOOOOG!!!]]''' I HATE HIM! '''I''' '''''HATE HIM!!!''''' HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO TURN MOBIANS INTO SLAVES IF HE KEEPS RRRUINING ALL OF MY PLANS?!?!"
** The monologue at the beginning of "Blackbot the Pirate" is a veritable [[HamAndCheese banquet of ham]]:
--> "At last! My very own time machine! Now I can proceed with my cleverest plan of all time: Gathering the four most important items in the history of Mobius! The all-powerful Chaos Emeralds! With them, I will possess: ''Invisibility,'' ''invincibility,'' ''immortality,'' and finally, ''the power of life itself.'' With the Chaos Emeralds, no one can stop me from becoming the supreme high Robotnik! Today: ''Mobius.'' Tomorrow: '''''THE UNIVERRRRSSSE!!!'''''"
** It's not one of his most known quotes, but easily the quote of Robotnik's that best describes him is "[[NoIndoorVoice 300 pounds of ham!]]"
* ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'': "'''WHO?! WHO DID THIS?! WHO DARES TO SOIL MY NORMAL BOY HEAD WITH THIS... PORK COW?!?!'''"
** Zim is the ''king'' of this trope. Pretty much ''every single line he says'' has him screaming something.
*** GIR. "I WAS THE TURKEY ALL ALOOOONG!!"
*** Interestingly enough, when Dib breaks into his house during the Halloween special, he doesn't start yelling until after Dib ignores pretty much everything he says.
--> '''Zim:''' Help?! You?!
--> '''Dib:''' You're the only one with the technology--
--> '''Zim:''' HELP?!?! YOU?!?! Come to me? Your greatest, most amazing ''enemy?'' Your future slave-master and you ask for HELP?!?
** Ham seems to be a class feature of Irkens, whether it's the Almighty Tallest ("Soon, all the races of the universe will serve... the IRKEN EMPIRE!"), Tak ("'''I''' should have been an Invader! '''I''' should have been part of the Great Assigning! I shouldn't '''have''' to be stealing '''this''' planet from '''you'''!"), or even little Skoodge ("So that no Irken boot has to come into contact with any unsavoury alien filth! '''HOO-AH'''!")
-->"Mortal enemies, teaming up for THE GREATER GOOD!"
** "THE HIDEOUS FORTESS OF SCREAMING PAIN!!"
--> "There ARE no ''curses,'' son! *contorts* [[MadScientist MUHAHAHAHAHAHAAA!]]"
** The Shadow Hog. The name alone is hammy.
--> '''I AM THE SHADOW HOG!''' WHAT IS IT YOU WANT FROM ME, CHILD WHO CONJURED ME, AND CHILD WHO WAS '''BLESSED''' WITH '''PIG''' SENSES?
** Ms. Bitters does this every once in a while.
--> "NNOOOTHINGG!!"
** Just about ''[[PigeonholedVoiceActor any]]'' character played by Creator/RichardStevenHorvitz is going to be a ham in some fashion or another. See: The hammily demented Daggett Beaver of ''WesternAnimation/TheAngryBeavers'', the hammily moronic Billy of ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'', and the hammily… well, I don't know what to call him--Rodney in ''WesternAnimation/SquirrelBoy.'' Richard actually pointed this out several times, saying that Zim is the hardest role he's ever done, because even his NORMAL speaking voice is shouting.
** Professor Membrane, as well as quite a few other Rodger Bumpass roles.
* Coach [=McGuirk=] from ''WesternAnimation/HomeMovies'', especially in the episode where he's deprived of sleep.
** '''DVD PLAYER!'''
* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'': Cartman and Randy Marsh for starters. Mel Gibson takes this trope UpToEleven.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': "Duffman! Oooooh Yeah!"
** [[Funny/TheSimpsonsSeasons9To16 That brown spot needs a little [=H2O=]... OHH YEAH! [Moe plasters a sticker onto his face] DUFFMAN... CAN'T BREATHE! OOOOH NO!]]
** [[DeanBitterman Superintendent Chalmers]] saying "SKINNEEEEEEEEEEEER!"
** Three words: "Agggh, Sideshow Bob!"
*** Krusty The Clown.
** When he's allowed to speak at all, Sideshow Mel takes this to '''[[TrrrillingRrrs rrridiculous]]''' new '''heights!'''
--> '''Sideshow Mel:''' I'll see to it that Mr. Burns suffers the ''infernal machinations'' of ''Hell's grim tyrant!''
** "Deep Space Homer", Race Banyon (played by Creator/HankAzaria)
--> "They'll clog the instruments!", "Oh my God, the ants are shorting out our navigation systems!", etc.
** Homer himself has many hammy moments. Once scene for example in "Bart Gets Famous", in which Homer immediately assumes the worst upon seeing a ''completely ordinary'' cardboard box with Bart's hat on it:
--> '''"He's a box! My boy's a box! [[SkywardScream DAMN YOU! A BOOOOOOOOX!]]"'''
** Also, Troy [=McClure=] (shows the most during the musical version of ''Franchise/PlanetOfTheApes'' he stars in.)
-->'''Troy:''' WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME?
-->'''Dr. Zaius:''' I think you're crazy.
-->'''Troy:''' I WANT A SECOND OPINION!
-->'''Dr. Zaius:''' "You're also lazy.
* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'': [[WorldOfHam Quahog is home to colossal pounds of ham.]]
** Joe has his moments.
--> "'''''BRING IT ON!'''''"
--> "The sexual thrill! '''''THE SEXUAL THRILL!'''''"
--> "[[SarcasmMode Oh, yeah! It's perfect for all the happy, active gingerbread men.]] ''(eats half of cookie)'' Except for the one with '''NO LEGS!''' Look at the parents telling their kids not to stare. ''(mockingly)'' "How does his pee-pee work, Mommy?" Well, I've got news for you, Becky: '''''NOT SO WELL!!!'''''"
** Peter himself.
--> "'''I WANNA KNOW WHOSE CUP THIS IS!'''"
--> "SHUT UP! YOU HAD YOUR FINGER IN MY ASS!"
--> "'''''[[Film/RoadHouse ROAD HOUSE.]]'''''"
** Stewie too.
--> "HA! I GOT YOUR HAT! TAKE THAT, HATLESS! NOW GO BACK TO THE QUAD AND RESUME YOUR HACKEY-SACK TOURNEY! I'M NOT GONNA LIE DOWN FOR SOME FRAT BOY BASTARD WITH HIS DAMN TEVA SANDALS AND HIS SKOAL BANDITS AND HIS ABERCROMBIE AND FITCH LONG SLEEVE, OPEN STITCH, CREW NECK HENLEY SMOKING HIS STICKY BUDS OUT OF A SODA CAN WHILE WATCHING HIS FAVORITE DOWNLOADED [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons SIMPSONS]] EPISODES EVERY NIGHT! YES, WE ALL LOVE "MR. PLOW!" OH, YOU'VE GOT THE SONG MEMORIZED, DO YOU? SO DOES EVERYONE ELSE! THAT IS ''EXACTLY'' THE KIND OF IDIOT YOU'D SEE AT TACO BELL AT 1:00 IN THE MORNING! THE GUY WHO JUST WHIFFED HIS WAY DOWN THE BAR SKANK LADDER!"
** Even Brian.
--> "WAAAHHH! WAAAHHH! YOU LIKE THAT, HUH?! YOU LIKE THAT?! WAAAAHHHH! YOU'LL JUST TUNE THIS OUT, DON'TCHA?! WAAAHH! WELL, TUNE '''''THIS''''' OUT! WAAAAAHHHHH!!!!!"
** Out of everyone in general, taking the pork is '''''[[KnightOfCerebus Jeff,]]''''' who [[UpToEleven cranks it up]] to a '''''unbelievable level.'''''
** And we now go live to [[TokenMinority Ollie]][[NoIndoorVoice WilliamS]] for our list of hams. Ollie?
--> "'''[[TerseTalker I'M IN IT!]]'''"
* The universe of ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' is largely a WorldOfHam. Some of the larger pork-products include:
** [[GeneralRipper Zapp Brannigan]]. In fact, the character was originally pitched as "What if Creator/WilliamShatner were the captain of [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries the Enterprise]] instead of Kirk?"
--> "My friends, you can take away a man's rank and title, but you can never take away his integrity or his honor. Plus it was mainly Kif's fault."
** [[BadBadActing Calculon]], with his [[DealWithTheDevil literally "unholy...]] acting... ''TALENT!!''"
--> "I am filled with sorrow! Anger! Fear! Every emotion an actor can display!"
--> "[[BigNo NOOOOOOOO!!! Enn-oh-oh-oh!!!!!]]"
--> '''Bender:''' Now that's acting! Calculon really [[Creator/WilliamShatner Shatner'd]] the hell out of that scene.
** All of the Omicron Persei VIII aliens, especially '''''LRRR, RULER OF THE PLANET OMICRON PERSEI 8!!!''''' and his wife Ndnd. (Would you like to buy a vowel?)
*** Oddly, Lrrr and Ndnd's son Jrrr (Yes, he's essentially named Junior without being named literally Lrrr Junior) somehow is quite unhammy, despite his parents.
--> "We will raise the temperature of your planet by ''one million degrees a day,'' [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill for four days."]]
--> "This concept of ''wuv'' ''confuses'' and '''''infuriates us!!"'''''
** And, of course, alien menace/newscaster Morbo.
--> ''"Windmills do not work that way!'' '''Good night!"'''
--> "Hello, little man... ''I will destroy you!"''
** Cryogenics recovery worker Terry greets newcomers to this WorldOfHam with gusto:
--> ''"Welcome,'' to the '''world''' of ''tomorrow!"''
** Professor Farnsworth, when awake:
--> "Correct! This box contains ''our own universe!!"''
** Zoidberg's uncle Harold Zoid hilariously {{lampshade|Hanging}}s it in the movie ''Beast With A Billion Backs'':
--> "I [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall got a part in a fancy DVD-movie!]] It's only one line but I'm gonna ham it up like you wouldn't believe!"
** Bender, of course:
--> "The [[NephariousPharaoh cruelty of the old Pharoah]] is no more! [[MeetTheNewBoss Let a whole new wave of cruelty wash over this lazy land!!!"]]
** From "Mars University", [[DeanBitterman Dean Vernon]].
--> "RO-BOT HOOOOOOOUUUUUUUSE!"
** [[TheHedonist Hedonism-bot]] has only two defining characteristics: hamminess is one, and, well, his name kind of gives away the other one.
--> "Let us frolic and cavort like the Greeks of old! ''...You'' know the ones I mean..."
** Fry has apparently spent so much time around these large hams that he can no longer take an interest in anything, even the destruction of the universe, unless it is communicated to him in a hammy fashion. In ''Into The Wild Green Yonder,'' he instructs Number 9 Guy in basic ham oration:
-->'''Nine:''' So dig this, Fry. Our commune has been monitoring the universe's life energy for, like, a really long time, and we're [[Literature/StrangerInAStrangeLand grok]][[ShoutOut king]] some super weird junk.
-->'''Fry:''' Um, I don't mean to be rude, but it's kind of hard to take you seriously when you say junk like "grok" and "junk."
-->'''Nine:''' What about "commune"?
-->'''Fry:''' Especially "commune." Come on, it's the fate of the universe, puff it up a little. Like you could say your ancient order is sensing deep upheaval in the cosmic life energy field.
-->[Everybody murmurs.]
-->'''Nine:''' Okay. I'll try. So, like, a really, really long time ago... [Fry motions "longer" with his hands.] Eons ago? [Fry nods, approvingly] ''EONS'' ago!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9k4fIebDqXs Watch the epic hamminess]] of [[WesternAnimation/QuestForCamelot Baron Ruber's]] VillainSong, and you will see why he takes this trope UpToEleven.
--> '''Ruber:''' Now this chicken... '''CAN KILL!!! TA-DA!'''
* Megatron from ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}''. Although he varies between series, it's usually agreed that the ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'' version has the greatest taste for pork, followed closely by G1.
** [[TheStarscream Starscream]] enjoyed pork, but not enough to truly qualify as LargeHam - until ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated''. When Bumblebee blasts him with electricity while he was talking to Megatron, his reply is to grab Bumblebee, pull him to within an inch of his face, and shout, "''You interrupted '''MY SPEEEEEEEEEEECH!"'''''
** The literally planet-sized ham that is Unicron! Especially when he's voiced by Creator/OrsonWelles himself.
*** While Unicron's good counterpart, Primus, isn't ''nearly'' as talkative, when he does speak up, it is with an appropriate tone of ''Biblical'' proportions.
* Mentok the Mindtaker on ''WesternAnimation/HarveyBirdmanAttorneyAtLaw'', who constantly plays up his own powers when he's not being a DeadpanSnarker. Say it with me now... Ooooweeee ooweeeeeeee!
* Yosemite Sam from ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes''. Among other things, he's the self-proclaimed "Fastest gun north, south, east '''AAAAAAAND''' west of the Pecos!" and [[NoIndoorVoice rarely speaks in anything below a full-bodied shout]].
** Also WesternAnimation/FoghornLeghorn, the boisterous--I say, boisterous, motor-mouthed rooster.[[note]]Motor-mouthed, that is.[[/note]]
** In the cartoons where he has a voice, WesternAnimation/{{Wile E Coyote|and the Roadrunner}}.... '''SUUUUUPERRRRR GEEEEEEENIUSSSSSSSS!'''
** WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck - notably (but by no means limited to) his WesternAnimation/{{Duck Dodgers|in the TwentyFourthAndAHalf Century}}[[note]]'''IN THE TWENTY-FOURTH AND A HALF CENTURY!!!'''[[/note]] character.
* Comicbook/{{Storm}} felt the need to shout loud proclamations and poetic verses while using her powers in ''WesternAnimation/XMen''. One of Rogue's very first lines in the series is a comment that she should ease up a little.
** Hell, Storm even said normal things dramatically, like once when she and Cyclops had to split up, Storm's parting words were "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a_rj1B3l9gE I SHALL MEET YOU AT THE MONORAIL!]]"
** BigBad Apocalypse has ham as ''far'' beyond mutants as they are beyond '''''you!''''' He is the ham [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OYt78FWfa5M ETERNAL]]! And he's voiced by no less than John Colicos - aka Kor, the ''first Klingon in [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Star Trek]]''. Who of course returned in [[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine DS9]] even hammier than he was in TOS.
--> ''I am the rocks of the eternal shore. Crash against me... and be '''broken!'''''
--> ''[[ComicBook/{{Cable}} Evil mutant]]! You ''dare'' challenge Apocalypse '''again'''?! [[AGodAmI Blasphemer]]! YOU '''DEFILE''' MY SACRET CHAMBER!?''
--> ''You presume to attempt to destroy '''me''', mutant? You shall '''PAY''' for your hubris! '''RIGHT NOOOOOOOW!'''''
* After seven years of wonderful, nuanced work on ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'', Creator/PatrickStewart now does the voice of Bullock, Stan's CIA boss on ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'', and he is a ''huge'' ham.
** Stan is as well. And then there's Roger...
** Speaking of Creator/PatrickStewart and overly-sized pork products, he parodied Creator/SeanConnery's porky cameo as [[RichardTheLionHeart King Richard]] in ''Film/RobinHoodPrinceOfThieves'' by delivering a high-fat-and-cholesterol-filled performance of same in ''Film/RobinHoodMenInTights''. Because, as everyone knows... "It's good to be the king."
* "Long ago in a distant land, I, [[WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack Aku]], the '''shapeshifting Master of Darkness''', unleashed an ''' ''unspeakable'' ham!''' But, a '''foolish''' samurai warrior, wielding a magic sword, stepped forth to oppose me. Before the final blow was struck, I '''[[NarmCharm TWORE]] open a portal in time, and flung him into the future''', where my ham is '''LAW!''' Now the fool seeks to return to the past, and '''un'''do the future that is '''AKU'''!!!"
** His first line (asides from the opening sequence) is both hammy and awesome, despite it being said in a rather quiet voice: [[OhCrap "Once again I am free to smite the world as I did in days long past."]]
** The Spanish dub out-hams it, as Aku has... well, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cnVk8nGg39w this voice]].
** "'''ENOUGH!''' This next story is true to its utmost detail! Once, there was an all-powerful, all-mighty wizard, and a pathetic little samurai. And the wizard '' '''DESTROYED HIM!!!'' THE END!'''"
** "Once upon a time, there was a cute little girl '''[[SelfInsertFic WITH GREAT FLAAAMING EYEBROWS!]]'''"
** "Samurai, samurai...[[WhyWontYouDie WHY WON'T YOU]] '''[[WhyWontYouDie DIEEEE!!]]'''"
** The series has another large haggis- er, ham, in the Scotsman. [[BoisterousBruiser Big, bold, brash, and very strong]], his voice just doesn't seem to have a volume control[[note]]except when stealthing past Celtic demons, of course[[/note]]. In his first appearance, there's a point where Jack is surprised that an attack of his did not break the Scotsman's sword. The Scotsman's response?
---> "'''MAGIC RUNES, laddie!'''"
* Limburger from the original ''WesternAnimation/BikerMiceFromMars'' series was a bit like this on most occasions and also a SmallNameBigEgo. From the new series there's Ronaldo Rump and also Hairball.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman'' version of SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker.
--> [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ad6hk73bAPM Egad! A Batman in my belfry!]]
** The Franchise/{{DCAU}} version to a lesser extent.
** The DCAU Joker was particularly hammy in the early episode "The Last Laugh", with lines such as "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wEBLOSkBMZ4 You're going to MELT just like a griiilled cheeeeese sandwiiich!]]" and (regarding a large robot) "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3KCJxXwq20U You killed Captain Clown :(. YOU KILLED CAPTAIN CLOWN!!! >:(]]"
** It's telling that the Joker had the most frequent DoNotAdjustYourSet plots, so he could broadcast his villainous (and hammy) acts to the world. Hell, let's just say that if you're playing the Joker, you're gonna ham it up.
** DCAU Joker was played by Creator/{{Mark|Hamill}} [[MeaningfulName HAMill]], who would practice his {{Evil Laugh}}s when driving along LA highways, trying to be as hammy as possible.
** The Scarecrow in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries''. Especially when he's getting hauled back to Arkham:
-->'''Scarecrow''': ''I am the master of fear! The lord of despair! Cower before me and witness terror!''\\
'''Harley Quinn''': Hi, Professor Crane.\\
'''Scarecrow''': Good evening, child. ''*{{beat}}*'' '''''[[MoodWhiplash Worship me, fools! Worship me!]] Scream hosannas of anguish to Scarecrow, [[AGodAmI the all-terrible God of Fear]]!'''''
** Averted for Scarecrow in ''The New Batman Adventures'' when the showrunners realized that, though entertaining, Crane's hamminess [[TropesAreTools was working in direct opposition to his scariness]]. The resulting changes to his design and vocal direction worked wonders.
--> '''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=owaMoWmD2vE Director Dan Riba:]]''' They just had him whisper. And that whispery rasp was ''so'' scary... and we realized, you know, maybe we were trying too hard earlier.
** Comicbook/HarleyQuinn ain't no slouch either, [[VerbalTic puddin']]. [[PerkyFemaleMinion Ditzy attitude]] + {{Joisey}} accent you could cut with a chainsaw + [[MadLove total batshit crazy infatuation]] with [[SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker Mistah J]] = Masterclass in Minion Ham.
** The Penguin has his moments as well. Lampshaded in the episode "Almost Got 'im":
--->'''Penguin''' (telling his story to the other crooks): Greetings, Batman! You have taken the bait, as I knew you would. Now, prepare to meet your end, within my ''Aviary of Doom!''\\
'''Poison Ivy''' (interrupting): Aviary of WHAT?\\
'''Joker''': Yeesh, Pengers! How corny can you get?\\
'''Penguin''': Fah! Just because you mundane miscreants have no drama in your souls! Anyway, there he was in my Av... uh, big birdhouse...
** Maxie Zeus is a textbook example. Schizophrenically believing you're the reincarnation of a Greek god tends to do that to you.
** Black Mask [[ChewingTheScenery chews the scenery]] in pretty much all of his scenes in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanUnderTheRedHood''.
--->'''Black Mask''': Maybe my last request was too mired in subtlety. I want this man dead. And when I say dead, I mean seriously dead! BEATEN! BROKEN! HIS HEAD MOUNTED ON MAH WALL KINDA DEAD!
--->'''Black Mask''': And when he shows up to shut us down, have a party waiting for him! And when I say party, I actually mean [[DontExplainTheJoke A WHOLE LOT OF PEOPLE WHO ARE GONNA KILL HIM!]]
%%* ''WesternAnimation/TheAngryBeavers'' Norbert Beaver also qualifies as a Ham.
** With his trusty '''HELMUUUUUUTTTTT!!!!!!'''
* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'':
** "You cannot defeat me, for I am undefeatable, I am Moooooojoooo Jojo! That is my name, Mojo Jojo. The name I am telling you, for it is mine."
** While we're on the subject, [[CampGay Him]] fits this too.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers''' Doctor Orpheus:
--> Do not be too hasty in entering that room; I had ''Taco Bell for lunch!''
--> Fetch me my BLUE WINDBREAKER!
** And the Monarch can ham it up with the best of them when he's in his full-on villain mode.
--> With every fiber of my being, I stab at thee! As long as blood flows through this heart, I will hunt you down! I will be the stuff of your children's ''nightmares''! *muffled* ...AND THEN, when nothing can be heard but your ''cries'' of agony, I will '''PULL THE CHAIN''' and let the ''beast devour you!'' Mark my words...I will have my revenge... '''DOCTOR VENTURE!!'''
** IGNORE ME!!!
** "...Yes, Dr. Venture, WIRED! Like a bomb strapped to a killer whale, set to go off the moment you try to free yourself!!"
** Captain Sunshine: "[[BerserkButton WONDERBOOOOOY!!!]] [[HeroicBSOD WONDERBOOOOOOOY!!!]]"
** Mr. Impossible has some of it as well, in early episodes. Being played by Creator/StephenColbert didn't hurt. He tends to be hammy in the MadScientist sense.
** General Treister combines this with CloudCuckoolander and FourStarBadass in the best ways possible.
--> ''"Break up into groups, I want lists and solutions by the time I finish this jee-ooce box! Warning! I am thirsty! And it is fruit punch, and it is delicious!"''
* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' is a series just bursting with Large Hams. Not only villains and main characters, but lots of secondary and even one-time characters as well.
** Over reacting to almost everything, Sokka hams it up a couple of times ''every'' episode.
---> "I'm going to spend my vacation [[MundaneMadeAwesome AT THE LIBRARY!!!]]"
--->"APPA ATE MOMO!!"
*** Even more when he's disguised in the Fire Nation as '''WANG FIRE'''.
** Jeong Jeong. Every line that Jeong Jeong said was super serious and dramatic, especially when he angsted about how much of a BURDEN firebending is. Add to that that his voice itself is quite hammy, no matter what he is saying. Hey, his pupil Zhao had to get it from somewhere.
---> ''"What would a boy know of destiny? If a fish lives its whole life in this river, does he know the river's destiny? NO! Only that it runs on and on out of his control! He may follow where it flows, but he cannot see the end. He cannot imagine the ocean!"''
---> ''"I've always wished I were blessed like you [[Katara]]. Free of this BURNING CURSE."''
---> ''"Water brings healing and life. Fire brings only DESTRUCTION and PAIN."''
** Ozai ([[MeaningfulName HAMill]] again) in the finale
---> ''"You're ''weak''! Just like the rest of your people! They did not deserve to exist in this world, in ''my'' world! Prepare to join them! [[PrepareToDie Prepare to DIIIIIIE!]]"''
---> ''"I have [[AGodAmI all the power IN THE WORLD]]!"''
** Like in everything else, [[MagnificentBastard Azula]] follows closely in her father's footsteps. Unlike lots of other Large Hams, she doesn't have to resort to shouting every single one of her lines. Instead she has the overwhelming charisma and just the right amount of insanity to make almost everyone cower before her instinctively. Then, once they are shaking with fear, THE HAM IS UNLEASHED!
---> '''''Yes''! [[UnsportsmanlikeGloating We have defeated you for all time!]] ''[[SeriousBusiness YOU WILL NEVER RISE FROM THE ASHES OF YOUR SHAME AND HUMILIATION!]]''... [[WasntThatFun Well, that was fun.]]
---> '''Azula''' ''"Together, you and I will be the strongest couple in the entire world. '''[[WeCanRuleTogether WE WILL DOMINATE THE EARTH!]]''''' (columns of blue fire burst from her hands)
---> '''Chan:''' ''"*IdiotCrows* Uh... [[NoGuyWantsAnAmazon I gotta go]]."''
** Azula appears just right after Season One villain Zhao was defeated (even the same episode). When it came to hamminess, her predecessor was just like her.
-->'''Zhao''': ''"I am... a ''legend'' now. The Fire Nation will for generations tell stories about the great Zhao, who darkened the moon! They will call me Zhao the Conqueror! Zhao the ''Moon Slayer''! Zhao, the '''INVINCIBLE'''!!!''"
** While usually more of the DeadpanSnarker type, Toph also enjoys some really good hamming from time to time. Usually while beating the crap out of large numbers of much larger men by throwing around boulders. Among other things, giving the (intentionally) most hammy performance of the entire series:
---> '''''"I AM MELLON-LORD!!! [[AxCrazy MUAHAHAHAHA!!!]]"'''''
---> ''"WHOOOO!!! Toph, you rule!"''
---> ''"What's your fighting name? The Fancy Dancer?!"''
---> ''"Please, do people really want to see '''two''' little girls fighting?"''
---> ''"Yeah, let´s break some rules!!!"''(breaks a wall for emphasis)
*** Toph actually gets one of the most hammy moments in the show, after she invented Metalbending. Upon hearing a strange voice from behind, her kidnappers go to check on their prisoner, just to discover a big rupture in the empty metal box she was supposed to be in.

--->'''Master Yu:''' It´s another one of her tricks!
--->'''Xin Fu:''' There´s a giant hole in the box! How´s that a trick?!
--->'''Toph(off-screen):''' It´s not.
---->''(they turn around to see her standing up the hill)''
--->'''Toph''': It´s the real deal!
---->''(two swift motions of her arms later the two are in a rocky sandwich, another one throws them in the box. Then she leaps to the metal box, closes the hole like a curtain ''barehanded'', jumps on top and delivers this nice piece of ham:)''
--->'''Toph''': I am the greatest earth bender in the world! Don't you two dunderheads ever forget!
---->''(stomps on the box for emphasising, before leaping from the box, creating an earthwave on which she '''surfs away!''')''

--->Seriously, how much more hammy can a ''young, blind girl'' possibly get?
** Before any of that, we were given the [[ProfessionalWrestling "Professional Earthbenders"]], especially "The Boulder." Let's see...he's a pastiche of Wrestling/DwayneJohnson, both in looks (sort of) and personality (Johnson's legendary character ''The Rock''), ''and'' is voiced by another professional wrestler, Wrestling/MickFoley, who is a friend of The Rock's and can be -- and has been -- as over-the-top and cheesy as other wrestlers. One listen to The Boulder's lines tells you that Mick was ''having a grand old time'' voicing The Boulder.
** Being one of the greatest {{Self Parod|y}}ies in recent years, ''The Ember Island Players'' are overacting the entire time, trying to out ham each other.
---> ''"I'm so filled with hope that I'm TEARBENDING!"''
---> ''"HONOOOOOOOOOOR!"''
** The prison warden who imprisons Haru. It helps that he's voiced by GeorgeTakei.
* Creator/FrankWelker did it again with ''WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget'''s Dr. Claw, which is impressive given the raspy deep voice he had. "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lh4lig9nocg&feature=related GAAAAAAAAAAAADGET!]]"
** "I'll GET YOU GADGET! I'LL GET YOUUUUUUUUU!"
* ''WesternAnimation/TheTick''. His conversational style is the verbal equivalent of MundaneMadeAwesome, even when he isn't monologuing about Good and Evil. In [[Series/TheTick the live-action version]], he was played by scene connoisseur Creator/PatrickWarburton.
** Most of the villains would qualify too, particularly the Evil Midnight Bomber What Bombs at Midnight.
** El Seed. "No one could survive that much corn!"
* ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'': Scooby and possibly Shaggy.
-->'''Velma:''' Oh, what a ham.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Freakazoid}}''. Considering both Freakazoid and [[WesternAnimation/DaveTheBarbarian Chuckles the Silly Piggy]] (in the Disney subpage), can we just say that ''any'' character voiced by Paul Rugg falls under this?
** I guess so. Mr. Director from ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' and Nostradamus from ''WesternAnimation/{{Histeria}}!'' also fall under this, as does Rugg's live-action character of Manny the Uncanny from Disney's One Saturday Morning.
** Mr. Guitierrez definitely counts. If you need proof, just remember that "HE IS NOT A WEENIE! YOOOOOOU ARE THE WEENIE!!!"
* The ''WesternAnimation/{{Histeria}}!'' episode with the Wright Brothers has Froggo asking them for a bag of marshmallows and a crate of leeches, and then later for a tambourine and a vat of spam; both times they tell him no. His responses: "NO?! NO?! ''OH NOO!'' NO, IT CAN'T BE!! AAAHHHHH!!!!" and "NO! ''NO!'' '''''[[BigNo NOOOOO!!]]''''' THIS IS A '''DISASTER!!!'''"
* Most cartoon knocks off of Elvis Presley in cartoons such as ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyBravo''.
** In one episode called "Bearly Enough Time", Johnny meets a talking, equally hammy {{bear|sAreBadNews}} who claims himself to be "'''Chronos, ''master of all TIME!!'''''"
* ''WesternAnimation/CloneHigh'' has Prof. Cinnamon J. Scudwerth.
-->"DAMN IT! I haven't been to the OliveGarden in ''like FOREVER''!"\\
[[TheKhan "STAMOS!"]]
** The Pusher. Nuff said.
* Oberon in ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}''. He pulls it off, too.
** Also to a lesser extent, Matt Frewer as Jackal. Come to think of it, Matt Frewer is a ham overall. [[IncredibleHulk So... says... the LEADER!]]
** Puck.
--->"'''Don't interrupt!''' I'm on a ''roll!''"
** Dr. Sevarius, played by the always hammy Creator/TimCurry.
** And Thailog, who actively cultivates an EvilLaugh and genuinely revels in his villainy, though he can be dangerously understated when he ''really'' wants to be scary.
** The Archmage is also a pretty melodramatic guy.
** Xanatos occasionally forays into LargeHam territory, though he always manages to lampshade them. Which makes the moments hammier, since he's obviously playing it up for the sheer joy of it.
** Goliath has his hammy moments as well.
--->"I've been denied everything...even my '''REVENGE!'''"
* Skull Master from ''WesternAnimation/MightyMax''. I think Tim Curry's favorite food is ham, such as when he returns to the surface.
-->The Sun? THE SUN. to feel the sun ({{beat}}) again, to feel the wind, To be... IN THE DAY WORLD, to be... FREEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!
* Creator/ChristopherLloyd's role as "Hacker" on ''WesternAnimation/{{Cyberchase}}'' involves reading each line in a maniacal howl.
* Mr Blik from ''WesternAnimation/{{Catscratch}}'' and any other character voiced by Wayne Knight.
* In ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot'', Hexadecimal can go from subdued to large ham on a whim. Usually with a suitable change of face to go with it.
-->I don't know if I should talk to you, '''OR KILL YOU!!!'''
* Greetings and bienvenue, Tropers! [[YouMightRememberMeFrom You may remember]] [[WesternAnimation/TheSecretSaturdays V. V. Argost]] from his [[ShowWithinAShow delightful television program,]] ''[[ShowWithinAShow V. V. Argost's Weird World]]''... Or perhaps from the EvilPlan that's slowly but surely leading him to [[TakeOverTheWorld world domination]].
* Mok from ''WesternAnimation/RockAndRule'':
-->I don't offer you just anything - I OFFER YOU EVVVVVVVERYTHING!
-->I'm the biggest thing since World War III!
-->She can sing or SHE CAN SCREAM! (calmly) But she still pissed me off.
-->YOU CAN'T DO THIS TO ME! I... AM... MOK!
* The original LargeHam duck WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck.
-->Mine, mine, mine, mine!
-->Aha! I'm going to be the hero of this picture!
-->Wait! I haven't tried toadying, kowtowing and butt-kissing yet! I'm still begging here!
-->Your duck? Bah! I belong to the world.
-->Hey, come here! Come here! Give me a close-up. A close-up! (circle irises around him) This is a close-up?!? A CLOSE-UP, YA JERK!! A CLOSE-UP!!!
-->All right. Enough is enough. This is the final, the - the very, very last straw! Who's responsible for this? This... I demand that you show yourself! Who are you? Huh?
** And his hammiest line of all.
--> (Coming out of Porky's refrigerator dressed in winter gear) "What a trip! What a trip! Blizzards all the way! Snow 20 feet deep! But we had to get that serum through! It was mush, mush, mush all night! (Grabbing the dog and pushing him like a sled dog) Come on, '''mush, mush, mush, mush, mush!''' ''Suddenly, the glacier cracks! There's a roar! Tons of ice! No escape! '''AAAAAAAHHHHHHH!''''' [[MoodWhiplash How have things been with you?]]"
** Heck, most ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' characters have their moments of ham. A great example is Yosemite Sam, who has NoIndoorVoice.
-->'''Bugs Bunny:''' [[UsefulNotes/TheodoreRoosevelt I speak softly, but I carry a BIIIIG stick.]]
-->'''Sam:''' Oh yeah? Well I '''SPEAK ''LOOOOOOOOUD''''', and I carry '''A ''BIIIIIIIGGER'' STICK!''' And I USE IT, TOO!
* Mrs. Claus introduces Snow Miser in ''WesternAnimation/TheYearWithoutASantaClaus'' by saying "Here he comes, the big ham."
** His brother, the Heat Miser, might actually be an even bigger ham.
*** That's a mystery but they're hammy in their own special as well.
* Both Jabba the Hutt and his EvilUncle Ziro in ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars''. Ziro in particular seeing as his voice is based on Truman Capote. "One day Ah'll rule tha hutts!"
** The {{Space Pirate|s}} Hondo Ohnaka. Anything he says is hammyness at its most ''glorious''.
*** "THIS EFFORT! IS NO LONGER! PROFITABLE!"
* Most characters on ''WesternAnimation/MyGymPartnersAMonkey'' act like this, Jake Spidermonkey being the most obvious example.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Spider Man The Animated Series}}'' from the early nineties, which has pretty much every character fall into hamminess at one point, ''especially'' the villains.
** Special mention goes to Neil Ross as Norman Osborn / the Green Goblin, who has ''not a single line'' that isn't pure 100% pork.
--> "NOOOOOOO! STOP STAAAAAARING AT MEEEEEEEE!"
--> "Ohhh... Peter Parker's here! Now the party can ''really'' begin!"
** Also, the Scorpion.
--> "I told you NOT TO CALL ME NAMES!"
** No love for Venom?
--> Yeeeeeeesss... YEEEEEESSSS! We RECALL replicating...
--> Say... ALOHA!!!
** For that matter, where's the love for Peter? Particularly in his black suit. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sMk-HPBF6Mw "SHOCKEEEEEEER! YOU CAN'T ESCAPE ME! I'LL CHASE YOU TO THE ENDS OF THE EAAAAAAAAAARTH!"]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'' has ''Mysterrrrrio'', who, true-to-form, embodies and revels in this trope. [[spoiler:Only when he's "performing", though]]
** Doc Ock hams it up quite a bit. "'''[[MemeticMutation TREACHERYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!]]'''"
*** "'''ARACHNIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIID!!!'''"
** Also Green Goblin, though [[spoiler:this is likely deliberately done to avoid people connecting him with the always calm and controlled Norman Osborn]].
*** And he's voiced by ''Creator/SteveBlum''.
** Venom gets his fair share of hammy moments, and having the VoiceOfTheLegion ups his hamminess: "From now on, [[RoyalWe we're]] ''poison'' to Peter Parker ''and'' Spider-Man. ''[[{{Catchphrase}} WE'RE]] '''[[{{Catchphrase}} VENOM]]'''''!"
* ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' gives us Moosk, who is both an exceptionally large ham and an AffectionateParody of Minsc, also voiced by Creator/JimCummings. "'''Spray starch?! SPRAY STARCH!!!'''"
** [[BigBad Father]] and [[BiggerBad Grandfather]] are both overdramatic in their proclamations of evilness.
* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' gives us Comicbook/{{AQUAMAN}}, BoisterousBruiser par excellence and '''King of the Seas!!'''
** '''OUTRAGEOUS!'''
** It also gave us MUSICAL HAM in the form of '''[[Creator/NeilPatrickHarris THE MUSIC MEISTEEEEEEEEEEEEEEER!!!]]'''
** Batman himself is a rather unusual case. He delivers every line like an overblown stage performer giving a live reading of a comic book, but somehow still manages to play the straight man. He even gets away with shouting overblown one-liners every chance he gets.
*** HAMMERS OF JUTICE
* Does [[WesternAnimation/SpaceGhost Brak]] count as a LargeHam?
* Major Glory from ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory''.
** '''"DEE DEE! GET OUT OF MY LA-BOR-A-TOR-Y!!'''
** You are '''styoopid!''' You are '''styoopid!''' And don't forget, YOU ARE '''''STYOOPID!!''''' (and this wasn't even the regular voice act[[CrossDressingVoices ress]]!)
** '''"AT LAST! MY GRRRREATEST CREATION IS COM-PLEEEE-TED!" ''' *holds up a plate of cookies*
** "'''OOOOOOHH!''' What does '''this''' button do???"
* Dr Weird from ''WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce''. There's his ''CatchPhrase'' "'''Gentlemen...BEHOLD!'''" and then there is his tendency to announce even the most mundane of actions in a loud booming voice. "''Observe, as I...'''''ADJUST THE HEAT! MWA HA HA HA HA HA HAAAAA!!'''"[[note]]Do note, though, that he was turning it up to ''300 FREAKING DEGREES''![[/note]]
** "'''Gentlemen... BEHOLD! I have made LOVE to this MACHINE! And now, upon retrospect, I ASK WHY!'''"
*** "'''Gentlemen... I BRING YOU...''' '''''[++[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DUWuUIiciWk MORE CORN!!!"]]++]'''''
** Master Shake as well.
** On the villain side, Doctor Wongburger and balloon Hitler.
* Mother Brain of ''WesternAnimation/CaptainNTheGameMaster'', who was voiced by the lead singer of The Four Tops (you know; the one who voiced the ever-hammy [[Film/LittleShopOfHorrors Audrey II]]). Always dramatic, always flamboyant, always fantastic.
---> It won't be long before I, the beautiful goddess that I am, become queen of Videoland!
** Simon Belmont was barely any better.
* The eponymous Big Guy of ''WesternAnimation/BigGuyAndRustyTheBoyRobot'' is prone to making pronouncements like this one: "'''No not of this Earth surgical probe wielding invaders are going to deprive this planet's children, and their growing bones, of even one glass of wholesome milk!'''" The contrast between the understated, somewhat cynical Lieutenant Hunter and the overblown, jingoistic personality he takes on while piloting the Big Guy mech goes a long way to explain why almost no one ever catches on that they are one and the same.
* [[VainSorceress Lydia]] from ''WesternAnimation/BarbieAndTheDiamondCastle'' definitely comes off as one of these, especially considering her [[ItsAllAboutMe villainous motivation]].
-->"Great singers don't need a chorus!" *jazz hands*
* Most characters from ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' could qualify as LargeHam at times.
** [[Creator/RobPaulsen Jack Fenton:]] If a LargeHam is both large and eats ham (as well as '''''FUDGE!''''') does this make him a large ham squared?
*** (Talking about ghosts) "...And rip it apart '''''Molecule''''' by '''''Molecule'''''!"
** '''"I... AM TECHNUS! GHOST MASTER OF SCIENCE AND ELECTRONIC TECHNOLOGY!"'''
*** Sam actually uses this against him the first time they fight by asking him to shout out his name and motive. He happily complies, giving Sam and Tucker time to upload a virus.
** Super Danny from ''Identity Crisis.'' "I'm not alright, I'm '''''DANNY FENTON!'''''"
** "I am the '''''BOX GHOST! BEWARE!'''''"
** Lunch Lady: "PREPARE TO TASTE DEFEAT! ''*{{Beat}}*'' [[MoodWhiplash Aaaand would you like a nice salad with that]]?"
** Undergrowth: "'''''I AM EVERYWHERE!!!'''''"
* [[WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents While we're on the topic of Butch Hartman]], why is [[EvilTeacher Denzel Q Crocker]] such a huge ham? There's only one logical explanation...'''[[{{Catchphrase}} FAIRY GOD PARENTS!]]'''
** Mark Chang.
*** '''''MANURE! THAT'S LIKE, THE RAREST OF ALL DELICACIES ON MY PLANET! WHY ARE YOU WASTING SUCH A DELICIOUS TREAT ON SUCH HIDEOUS PETUNIAS?!?!?!?!'''''
*** '''''AAAHH!! THE CUTENESS!!! IT BURNS!!!'''''
*** I will suck out your brains...'''''through these bendy straws'''''!
** Dr. Rip Studwell, as voiced by Mr Hartman himself.
* Johnny from Tales Of Worm Paranoia from ''WesternAnimation/WhatACartoonShow''. "YOU FILTHY CHILDREN!"
* Alvin from ''WesternAnimation/SabrinaTheAnimatedSeries''. "Don't EVER laugh at me!"
* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans''
** Brother Blood has a flair for the dramatic and a tendency to go quite over the top when his plans are working (or when they're not and he's angry at someone because of it, for that matter). WordOfGod says this was done deliberately to make a contrast with the previous two seasons' BigBad, [[CreepyMonotone Slade]].
** [[HarmlessVillain NOTHING CAN DEFEAT THE BRILLIANCE OF DR. LIGHT!]]
** "You'll never stop the Amazing Mumbo!"
* Although she usually behaves like the very opposite of a ham, Misery from ''WesternAnimation/RubyGloom'' sometimes gets into this role with remarkable ease:
** "I'm also the Queen of Disasters, by the way. And the Princess. And the Baroness. And the '''Countess!!''' And the '''''Vis''countess!! THE EMPRESS!!!"'''
** "'''BEWARE!!!'''...of the cupboard!"
** "As my great-great-great-aunt used to say whenever she got '''BLASTED''' out of a volcano... well, she mostly just screamed. But the point is: '''Try, try and try again!'''"
** Misery seems to be some kind of inflatable ham, who can slip in and out of hammy acting at the drop of a hat. Many of her lines are half ham, half deadpan.
** Scaredy Bat also has his moments of ham as well.
* Comicbook/GreenArrow in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague''. Particularly in the episode where he attacked a submarine while [[ThemeMusicPowerUp singing his own theme music]].
* WesternAnimation/JohnnyTest is [[WorldOfHam a buffet of ham]], especially Johnny, Dukey (when he's not being a DeadpanSnarker) and pretty much all the villains in the show.
* Bluto from ComicStrip/{{Popeye}}. Olive Oyl even sang about it in a Romeo and Juliet based musical in one of the cartoons.
** "Get out scram/Clumsy ham!/You're a monkey/With a beard."
* '''[[ComicStrip/TheBoondocks COLONEL H. BLEEPING STINKMEANER!]]'''
* Dan Backslide (coward-bully-cad-and-thief) from ''WesternAnimation/TheDoverBoys'' Creator/ChuckJones short. "''A runabout!'' '''I'LL STEAL IT! NO ONE WILL EVER KNOW!'''"
* [[WorldOfHam The entire cast]] of ''WesternAnimation/{{Chowder}}'', but the title character in particular, with Mung Daal a close second.
* It's taken this long to include the [[DastardlyWhiplash original old-timey, tie-a-babe-to-the-railroad-tracks, foreclose-on-a-sobbing-widow, top-hatted, cackling bad guy]], ''[[WesternAnimation/DudleyDoRight Snidely Whiplash]]?'' Shame on you, tropers.
* [[WesternAnimation/DonkeyKongCountry Bluster Kong]] needs to be listed simply for this one scene from the episode "Hunka Hunka Burnin' Bluster":
-->''(while combing his hair)'' "There, how could Candy possibly resist me now? ''(looks at his comb)'' What's this?! ''Hair?! '''My hair?!? AAAAHHHH!!!''' My hair's falling out!'' Don't panic, don't panic. I've got just the tonic. 'For beautiful manageable hair'. 'For full-bodied hair'. 'For silky hair'. ''WHAT ABOUT FALLING OUT HAIR!?'' Keep calm, I'll... I'll combine them all together!"
-->''(Later...)''
-->"Ugh, what a smell. I can't use this. So what if I've lost a bit of hair? ''(looks at his comb again)'' '''''AAAHH!!''' More hair!'' I'm shedding!!"
** The BigBad King K. Rool. I dare anybody to find a line of his that isn't hammy to some extent.
* '''''[[CatchPhrase LEMME TELL YA SOMETHIN']], TV TROPES!!''''' '''NO ALIEN IS AS HAMMY AS [[WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce RATH]] IS! [[BoisterousBruiser WANNA FIGHT ABOUT IT]]?! COME ON, ''[[ProudWarriorRaceGuy LET'S FIGHT]]'''''!!!
** Albedo demands that you "BRING ME CHILLI FRIES!"
* ''WesternAnimation/FilmationsGhostbusters'' is, in many people's opinion, a fairly tedious animated series. However, it does have the magnificently malevolent Prime Evil as portrayed by Alan Oppenheimer. Prime Evil alone makes it well worth the price of admission.
* Nigel Thornberry of ''WesternAnimation/TheWildThornberrys'', voiced by Tim Curry, is pure ham.
** ''"Helloooooo,'' I'm ''Nigel Thornberry.''"
* Tzekel-Kan of ''WesternAnimation/TheRoadToElDorado'' is also a rather large ham.
-->'''Tzekel-Kan:''' I KNOW what you are. and I KNOW what you are NOT. And you are NOT. '''GODS!!!'''
** "Now EVERYONE will know the truth... of your... ''DIVINITY''!"
* Can Richard Newman, as the voice of M. Bison in the animated ''WesternAnimation/StreetFighter'' series, really compete with Creator/RaulJulia's [[Film/StreetFighter live action portrayal]] of the character for sheer hamminess? [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P3ALwKeSEYs Yes! Yes!]] See the context of this deliciousness [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p0j0lO7uQBo here]].
* Lucius from ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes''.
* Ed Bighead from ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife''.
** Just his voice and the way he talks is extremely hammy.
** Most characters voiced by Creator/CharlieAdler fall under this, since Ickis, The Red Guy and Mr. Whiskers are quite large hams themselves.
* ''WesternAnimation/ThunderCats'': Mumm-Ra, '''THE EVER-LIVING!!!'''
* Omi, Raimundo, and most of the villains from ''WesternAnimation/XiaolinShowdown'' for that matter.
* Skipper from ''WesternAnimation/ThePenguinsOfMadagascar''. Especially evident in the episode "In the Line of Doody."
--> '''Skipper''': [[PunctuatedForEmphasis The Clock. Is. Ticking]].
--> '''Kowalski''': Sooo... were those dramatic pauses really necessary then?
--> '''Skipper''': (Dramatic pause) Yes.
* Creator/MichaelBell's SelfDemonstrating/LexLuthor in the ''WesternAnimation/RubySpearsSuperman'' cartoon. Probably because aside from his occupation as a CorruptCorporateExecutive, most of the inspiration for the character came from GeneHackman's portrayal in the films.
* Stanley Chan in ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingChanAndTheChanClan'', especially when he's in one of his many disguises.
* Do you know what ''WesternAnimation/{{Metalocalypse}}''[='=]s Doctor Rockzo the Rock n Roll Clown does? '''[[http://video.adultswim.com/metalocalypse/rock-n-roll-clown.html COCAINE!!!!]]'''
** [[HarshVocals Nathan]] [[MundaneMadeAwesome Explosion]] seems to count as well.
* [[WesternAnimation/StickinAround HEY, YOU GUYS!!!]]
** Troper community: Hi Dill.
*** Is this troper the only one who forever associates that phrase with ''Film/TheGoonies''?
** "HOLY MACKERELLLLL!"
** Stacey also had her hammy moments. "REAL MATURE, BRADLEEEEEY!"
* Slagar the Cruel from the ''Literature/{{Redwall}}'' cartoon. Once again, voiced by Tim Curry.
** Hell, just him introducing himself is hammy. "''I''...am Slagar...''the '''cruel!'''''"
** The reveal? "I AM [[spoiler:'''''CHICKENHOOOOUUUUUUNNNNNDDDDD!'''''"]]
** Asmodeus from the first series was also a ham of epic proportions despite about 90% of his dialouge consisting of his own name.
*** And the other 10%? "I...shall show you...'''''ETERNITYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!'''''"
* Verminious Snaptrap, The Chameleon, Bird Brain, pretty much EVERY villain on ''WesternAnimation/TUFFPuppy''. The lead character Dudley also falls under this.
* [[WesternAnimation/AvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes Dr. Klaw]] under the effects of Vibranium takes Creator/MarkHamill's inherit hamminess and multiplies it exponentially. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zachD2eqodU '''EXPONENTIALLY!!''']]
** Thor and Graviton, too.
* While the world of the [[WesternAnimation/TheSuperHeroSquadShow Super Hero Squad]] is ''WorldOfHam'', SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom stands out. Thor, Wolverine, and Captain America are hammy but to a much lesser extent. Loki is another hammy villain.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1H6Mu8F8iRI Judy]] and Roger from ''WesternAnimation/{{Doug}}''.
* Ren from ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow''.
* Next time you sit down and watch ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', remember to bring a plate, because chances are Creator/TabithaStGermain is gonna fill it with liberal amounts of ham.
** When Rarity turns on the histrionics, she turns on the ham as well. You ''will'' believe a pony can ham.
*** That said, Rarity hams practically always. She just adjusts her ham between "normal" and "[[UpToEleven 11]]".
*** And then there was [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E13SimpleWays Simple Ways]]... By adopting an over-the-top version of Applejack's Southern accent for pretty much the whole third act, things went to Ludicrous Ham.
** Next you have Photo Finish, FountainOfMemes extraordinaire, who hams up every scene she's in with... DA MAGICKS.
** Ham seems to belong to fashion. Hoity Toity is about as hammy as Karl Lagerfeld, the fashion designer [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed he is based on]], isn't.
** Princess Luna; being a massive ham was required out of royalty a thousand years ago, [[FishOutOfTemporalWater which she's retained after all this time]] (complete with FloweryElizabethanEnglish). '''[[NoIndoorVoice THIS IS THE TRADITIONAL ROYAL CANTERLOT WAY OF HAMMING IT UP!]]'''
** The Great and Powerful Trixie (surprisingly not voiced by St. Germain this time, but by Kathleen Barr) is pretty much made of pork, appropriate for her role as a StageMagician and FakeUltimateHero. Then she returns two seasons later and is every bit as hammy as before, if not ''more so'', [[spoiler:due to the [[ArtifactOfDoom Alicorn Amulet]] causing her to go DrunkOnTheDarkSide]]. She's even a LargeHam when [[spoiler:she's apologizing for her behavior after making a HeelFaceTurn once the Amulet is removed.]]
** [[TheOmnipotent Discord]], the [[AnthropomorphicPersonification supremely aptly-named]] {{vil|eVillainSaccharineShow}}lain of the Season 2 opener, is [[FauxAffablyEvil deliciously]], [[ForTheEvulz maliciously]] [[GodOfEvil mean]]. He's voiced by Creator/JohnDeLancie. His ham [[ActuallyPrettyFunny isn't reserved]] [[LaughablyEvil for his evilness]], [[BewareTheSillyOnes either]]. You can't spell "Discord" [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PRxpZ7RKpHQ without "disco."]]
** Pinkie Pie's [[GenkiGirl boundless energy]] combined with her [[CloudCuckoolander shaky grasp on reality]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3YnQdBD2y64 lends her well to this trope.]]
** Iron Will from "Putting Your Hoof Down." He's essentially [[Anime/DragonBallZ Hercule]], Wrestling/HulkHogan, and Creator/MrT rolled into the body of a minotaur.
** Flim and Flam aren't too hammy when they just talk, but their [[VillainSong introduction is]] [[EarWorm pure ham]]. Like Trixie, they are showponies.
** From the season finale we have [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Queen]] [[EvilMatriarch Chrysalis]] (voiced by Kathleen Barr, like Trixie), who likes her [[EmotionEater love]] with a side of scenery.
** Creator/TheHub: where puppies and kittens play together, where friends drop by for a visit, and where rainbows '''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xOhLtol02Rg PUNCH HOLES IN THE SKY!!!]]'''
** From [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E1MareInTheMoon much]] [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E2ElementsOfHarmony earlier]], [[MadGod Nightmare Moon]]... which should seem [[EvilIsHammy natural]] for her, being Princess Luna's SuperpoweredEvilSide.
** Also at the very beginning of the series, we meet [[FanNickname Steven Magnet]], the sea serpent with the (half) BEEYOOOTIFUL MOOUSTAAACHE.
** Fluttershy, of all ponies, gets her turn. "You're... going... to '''''LOVE MEEE'''''!!!!!"
** In "Power Ponies", the Mane-iac is such a large ham that the other characters in the show are put to shame. She's engaged in an EvilLaugh for roughly 90% of her screentime.
* [[WesternAnimation/MegasXLR The REGIS Mark V]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=37lf4n6lxX0 mocks your pitiful attempt at ham. It will destroy all.]]
* The Warden from ''WesternAnimation/{{Superjail}}'' is essentially a sociopathic, {{reality warp|er}}ing Film/{{Willy Wonka|AndTheChocolateFactory}} taken UpToEleven.
* ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' is prone to overreact/cry over minor things. The show in general is a WorldOfHam.
* Superboy from ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' can get surprisingly hammy when he yells. Especially in episode 2.
* Scaredy from ''WesternAnimation/ScaredySquirrel'' hams it up a few times.
* The Whammer from ''WesternAnimation/WordGirl''. Yeah, '''''wham'''''!
* [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Bloo]] from ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends''. Due to having [[NoIndoorVoice absolutely no volume control most of the time]], he has his hammy moments.
* ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPandaLegendsOfAwesomeness'': Po Ping is very much this. Also, the show's starting to fill up with villain hams. Heck, even the names of places tend to be a little hammy.
* The (Dark) Princess[[note]]In both the movie and the credits, she is referred to as simply "The Princess".[[/note]] from ''RainbowBrite and the Star Stealer''.
* Luigi in ''WesternAnimation/SuperMarioWorld''? '''THAT'S MAMA LUIGI TO YOU, MARIO!''' *wheeep* Perhaps [[JustifiedTrope justified]] as Luigi was telling Yoshi a bedtime story from his own point of view.
** Or how about [[WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfSuperMarioBros3 King Koopa?]] '''Permit me to introduce you to RACCOOOOOOON KOOPA!'''
* Stork from ''WesternAnimation/StormHawks'', if you're searching for neurotic, TwitchyEye flavored ham.
* You dare to mention the One True [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003 Shredder]]? [[YouFool Fools!]] You will all pay! [[CatchPhrase None of you will leave this place alive!]] [[EvilLaugh MWAHA, AHAHAHAHAHAA!!!]][[note]][[LeitMotif HYYOOOO...]][[/note]]
* Few of the character from ''WesternAnimation/TeamUmizoomi'' Would at least have a LargeHam moment.
** '''CHEESY!'''
* ''WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButtHead:'' Beavis' Cornholio persona, who shouts at the top of his lungs in a faux Spanish accent, demanding t.p. and ranting about the almighty bunghole, all in a dramatic, over the top fashion.
-->"ARE YOU THREATENING ME?! YOU DO NOT WANT TO FACE THE WRATH OF MY '''BUNGHOLE!!!'''"
* [[WesternAnimation/LittlestPetShop2012 The Littlest Pet Shop 2012]] features Zoe Trent being as hammy as possible and even in a happy mood. She's also a walking CMOF most of the time.
* The ''WesternAnimation/PoundPuppies2010'' episode "Prince and the Pupper" features Squirt meeting his deadringer, Cuddlesworth P. Wigglebottom. And he is outright ''deliciously'' hammy, even with shades of adorkable when he tries to fit in with the gang by using Squirt's teachings and manners. And Mr. Cuddlesworth brings back the ham for his second appearance in "The Ruff Ruff Bunch".
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Beetlejuice}}''. The limelight is never too bright for him. Claire Brewster (Lydia's school rival) is a close second.
* The Red Guy from ''WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken''. HELLO! IT'S ME!
* Clyde Crashcup from ''WesternAnimation/TheAlvinShow''.
* Rare non-verbal example: Harchi from OscarsOasis. He frequently enjoys dancing, acting goofy and even flashes a series of over-the-top poses for scoring a single point in a game of tennis.
* The Duke of Detroit in ''{{WesternAnimation/Motorcity}}'', to the point where he always needs to make entrances like he's a rock star (appropriate, as he's voiced by [[Music/TwistedSister Dee Snider]]). Texas is also this, when he's deluded that he's the leader of the group. And to a lesser extent, Abraham Kane.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Fillmore}}'': Principal Folsom has many talents, but the ability to control her volume when agitated is not one of them.
-->"'''RAYFORD!''' A metaphor!"
* ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'' has some Large Hams: Rigby, especially when he yells "STOP TALKING!!!"; Muscle Man, mainly when he go "WHOOO!!!" and whenever he squeals like a pig; [[HairlyTriggerTemper Benson]], chiefly when he's pissed off; The Senesei who let out three BigNo in "Death Punchies."
** Mordecai had his moments of hamminess and it's very unusual to hear JG Quintel raise his voice.
* ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers'' is basically a WorldofHam since overreacting seems to be their bread and butter.
** [[OnlySaneMan Bob]] is prone to this trope. A [[Funny/BobsBurgers Crowning Moment of Funny]] would be in Torpedo when he was yelling "Bob's Burgers" over and over.
** [[TheDitz Gene]] basically [[NoIndoorVoice shouts too often.]]
** [[CloudCuckooLander Louise]]. Good luck finding an episode where she doesn't scream.
* While there are several good choices to pick from in the Ben 10 Universe, there are two top picks that must be mentioned. Doctor Aloysius James Animo Hams up every appearance he makes, even which makes sense when you realize that he is voiced by Dwight Schultz (The Original Captain H. M. "Howling Mad" Murdock of the A-Team), and while many of Ben's Transformations Ham it up, including Feedback (his favorite), Spidermonkey, Bullfrag, Humungosaur, and Atomix... just to name a few,... one form tops the list... Rath, so much so that he's a Ham even when someone else is somehow transformed into him, and other characters have actually stated they like to just pull up a chair and sit back with a tub of popcorn to watch Rath in action. Between his calling out his attacks, yelling at anything and everything, talking in the 3rd person, using full names and titles to talk to people, mixing his metaphors and adages, and staring lines with "Let me tell you something..." Rath Hams every moment up when he appears and chews scenery like nobody's business.
--> '''Rath''': "LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING COUNTLESS TROPERS UNIFIED TO COLLECT, COMMENT, AND QUANTIFY EVERY PIECE OF FICTIONAL AND FACTUAL TROPINESS... RATH DOESN'T LIKE BEING PUT IN A NEAT BOX, DON'T TRY TO PUT RATH IN A NEAT BOX, YOU WOULDN'T LIKE RATH IN A NEAT BOX, CAUSE RATH IN A NEAT BOX IS LIKE AN ANGRY CAGED TIGER!!! SO THERE!!! AND YOU, TVTROPES SITE, RATH WILL BREAK YOU, RATH WILL CRACK YOU LIKE THE WEAK GIRLY EGGMAN YOU ARE MENTIONING AT THE TOP OF THIS LIST!!!"
* If anyone else is around, Helga of ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' is an aloof DeadpanSnarker. But once she's alone (or at least thinks she is), Helga G. Pataki unleashes a level of ham that would be impressive for a world-traveling adult, let alone a middle-school girl. Whether it be interfering with people's lives with a vaudevillian flair stolen straight from [[WesternAnimation/DudleyDoRight Snidely Whiplash]], mooning over Arnold with an intensity that makes fireworks seem subdued, or just wrestling with her own mental issues, Helga produces enough ham that all of P.S. 118 could never hope to consume it all.
** She gets it from her Dad- Big Bob is certainly hammy, especially when ranting about beepers, and Olga can ''really'' ham when she's {{Wangst Wangsting}}.
*** There's Harold, too. "Madame Fortress Mommy!"
