->''"THANK YOU! FUCK YOU! The star is here!"''
-->-- '''[[AxCrazy Ladd Russo]]''', ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}''

%% One quote is sufficient. Please place additional entries on the quotes tab.

A OneLiner that is powerful, portentous, and delivered by a character to announce his presence. As if we could possibly miss it. Often [[PunctuatedForEmphasis pronounced quite emphatically]]. Contractually required for a [[LargeHam certain type of actor]]. Can almost always be replaced by, "Did someone order a '''[[LargeHam LARGE HAM]]?'''"

Can be delivered as the character enters, or while he is still offstage as a portent. If the show engages in LampshadeHanging about [[InnocentInnuendo the largeness of the ham]], this can evoke a response of "Oh no!" from those already in the scene. (See CatchphraseInterruptus).

When the line is uttered by proxy, that's HammyHerald.

The most common form of dialog found in a WorldOfHam. Often the response to InadvertentEntranceCue. Usually a {{Catchphrase}}, but not always. Compare InTheNameOfTheMoon, BigEntrance, DynamicEntry. The NoblewomansLaugh frequently ends up being a case of this. SubTrope of EstablishingCharacterMoment.

When followed by a heapin' helpin' of ass-whoopin', it's a PreAsskickingOneLiner. Not to be confused with FoodFight. If this is combined with SayMyName then it's LargeHamTitle.


* The Kool-Aid man breaking through a wall and yelling "Oh yeah!"
* "HI, [[Creator/BillyMays BILLY MAYS]] HERE!!!"
* From the ''VideoGame/ClashOfClans'' commercial: "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YSdJtNen-EA Did somebody say HOOOOG RIDEEEEER?!]]"

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'': General Adon Coborlwitz, the Tudor Empire's most notorious MilesGloriosus, is constitutionally unable to enter a scene without trumpeting the size of his ego.
** Upon meeting ActionGirl Casca on the battlefield, the very first lines he bellows are this [[StrawMysogynist mysogynistic]] and pompous challenge:
--> "[[StayInTheKitchen The battlefield is a sacred ground of men]]! I, Adon, head of the [[LargeHamTitle Blue Whale Ultra-Heavy Armored Fierce Assault Annihilation Knight Corps]], shall teach you the folly of your frivolity in setting foot upon it!!"
** During the battle of Doldrey, when Casca is about to reach the castle's battlements, he reveals himself at the top of the stairs wearing [[ScaryImpracticalArmor elaborately villainous armor]] and exclaims, '''"Sha-sha-SHOCK!!! ADONNN!!!"''' Casca's annoyed expression seems to say, ''"Oh no, not ''[[GoldfishPoopGang this]]'' loser again."''
* ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure''
** '''[[SayMyName DIOOOOOOOOOO!!]]'''
** '''[[TimeStandsStill THE WORLD! STOP TIMEEEEE!!]]'''
* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''
** Kamina manages to turn a simple encouragement to Simon into an incoming ham, to say nothing of his actual introduction to a Ganmen later on in the episode.
** ''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome King Kittan is here!]]''
** Half of the show is people delivering hams, and many turn into this. The other half are mechs and [[StuffBlowingUp blowing shit up]]. Even [[ProperLady Nia]] pulls some at some point.
* [[EstablishingSeriesMoment The first thing we see]] in ''Anime/KillLaKill'' is [[LargeAndInCharge Ira Gamagoori]] [[EstablishingCharacterMoment kicking down a door, which]] ''explodes'', before entering the room and screaming "I'M ON OFFICIAL BUSINESS!"
* ''LightNovel/NinjaSlayer'' sees its titular character practically transform this trope into a [[UpToEleven life philosophy]], with the [[WorldOfHam rest of them]] not far off behind. Cue word: "DOMO".
* ''Anime/{{FLCL}}'' 's Haruko Haruhara introduces herself with an overenthusiastic cry of '''''"LUUUUUUUUUNNNNNNCCCCCHHHH TIIIIIIIMMMMMMEEEE!!!!!"''''' and running the main character over with her Vespa and beaning him on the head with her bass guitar.
* ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'': Ladd Russo enters with the line "Thank you! fuck you! The star is here!"
** And then starts [[LaughablyEvil disco dancing]]. [[PsychopathicManchild In a puddle of blood]].
* ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'': "KIIIIIIHAARAAAAAA-KUUUUUN!"
* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00'': Graham Aker when transforming his mecha from plane to robot form in mid flight to do a bodyslam, "I call this, the '''Graham Special!!'''"
* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'': The Team Rocket trio make rather a production of their entrances, going beyond a simple catch phrase to several catch sentences. More like a catch poem, really. It gets hammier and hammier with each season. They even did a Karaoke-style song once to introduce themselves. They do it so often that in ''To Master the Onixpected!'' Meowth even uses a remote to speed up the part of the episode where they perform their motto. James bites his tongue in the process from talking so fast. Meowth has a remote that can screw with reality... [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment and he never uses it again!?!]]
* ''Manga/PokemonSpecial'' has Black, whose first line was "I'M GOING TO BE THE CHAMPION OF THE POKÉMON LEAGUE!!!", which freaked out the other characters.
* ''Anime/CodeGeass'': In the first season finale, Jeremiah busts out of the ground piloting the enormous Knight Giga Fortress Sigfried, screaming "ALL HAIL BRITANNIA!"
* In ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'' OAV series, Naga's appalling NoblewomansLaugh usually precedes her.
* Renge in ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub'' often does this via NoblewomansLaugh before dramatically rising from under the floor.
-->'''Renge:''' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0AuFgZT4O-I Oh-hohohohohohohohohohohohohoho...hoho!]]
* "Sakiyama Kaori!", the UnknownRival of Maki in ''Manga/{{Airmaster}}'', in damn near every introduction.
* The first episode of ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara'''s anime is a food fight between half the cast over who has the biggest Incoming Ham. Even the ''opening line'' is an Incoming Ham; the one belonging to Date Masamune.
-->'''Masamune:''' [[GratuitousEnglish Are you ready, guys? PUT YA GUNS ON!]]
** For the record, DemonKingNobunaga probably wins it:
-->'''[[Creator/NorioWakamoto Nobunaga:]]''' Bow before me. As penance for disobeying the lord of the clan of a hundred demons, die and repent in the afterlife. There are none before me, and none behind me. [[AGodAmI I am the Devil King of the Sixth Heaven]], Oda Nobunaga! *dramatic cape swish*
** Wakamoto adds to that with his magnificent voice, as well as being able to [[TrrrillingRrrs roll every r]] in "Oda Nobunaga", an incredible feat considering there is no r in "Oda Nobunaga".
* '''So many''' ''Manga/OnePiece'' characters.
** Several characters, including Franky and Sogeking, had noteworthy musical entrances. The hammiest of them has to be Mr 2 Bon Kurei, who [[ItMakesSenseInContext arrived at Spider's cafe leading a konga-line of Ballet Dancing Okama]], all the while [[NoIndoorVoice singing his own theme tune]]. It would be a moment of awesome if it wasn't upstaged by many of the other things he did later.
* ''{{LightNovel/Durarara}}'' "[[FirstNameUltimatum Iiiiii-zaaaaa-yaaaaaa-kuuuuuuuuuuun!]]" Probably the most appropriate way to formally introduce Shizuo.
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'':
-->"Goooooooooooooood mooooorniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiing Ichigoooooooooooooooooooooo!"\\
"[[WebVideo/MyWayEntertainment Hatte mothafucking Kudasaiiiiiiiiiii!]]"
* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'': [[DynamicEntry "Dynamiiiiiic entryyyyyyyyyyyy!"]]
* ''Anime/TigerAndBunny'' does this with Sky High in the first movie.
--> '''Criminal''': Don't try anything funny, or else!\\
'''Sky High''': ''You'''re the one who better "not try anything funny, or else", mister!
* ''Anime/SailorMoon'': "Hold it right there!" before describing what the bad guy is doing, why it is wrong, and giving an InTheNameOfTheMoon speech.
** Each and every one of Tuxedo Mask's appearances, with his most over the top moment occurring in the S Movie, where he arrives on a Christmas float dressed as St. Nick himself.
* ''Manga/SoulEater'':
-->"Yahooooo ore-sama no Black*star da!"\\
* "I am here to take your life! My name is Wizard, Rotton the Wizard! I don't have anything against you but--" [[KilledMidSentence *BAM!*]] [[TalkingIsAFreeAction Talking is not a free action]] in ''Manga/BlackLagoon''. Shockingly, '''[[MadeOfIron he lives to tell.]]''' [[spoiler:He is the only one who had the sense to come in a bulletproof vest, which his BadassLongcoat does an excellent job of concealing]].
* Ahem. [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Major Armstrong]]. That is all.
-->'''Isaac the Freezer:''' I know that voice! Is that you, Armstrong?!
-->'''Major Armstrong:''' *[[ThereWasADoor smashes through wall]]* INDEED! NONE OTHER!
** In the manga Armstrong is introduced during the battle with Scar. Scar has just said he will kill everyone there; this is followed by "I'd like to see you TRY!" and Armstrong's fist smashing the ground millimeters from him. And then there's Basque Grand's entry in Ishval: "I am the Ironblood Alchemist, Basque Grand! Iron and blood, might and manpower! If I do not lead the charge, then who will?!"
* Kagerou Shoukiin of ''Manga/InuXBokuSS'' ramps this up by being not only hammy whenever introducing himself, but also irrevocably ''rude''.
* The Princess of the Crystal's "SURVIVAL STRATEGY!" in ''Anime/MawaruPenguindrum'', even before taking into account the minute-long summoning sequence that follows.
* Iskander from ''LightNovel/FateZero'' decides to make his public entrance into the fourth holy grail war by crashing his flying thunder chariot directly in-between a dueling Saber and Lancer, leaving skid marks in the concrete, before throwing up his arms, loudly and openly declaring his true name, and then inviting both combatants to join his army and help him TakeOverTheWorld.
* ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaInnocent'' shows that Levi the Slasher did not lose any of her hamminess from ''[[VideoGame/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAsPortable The Gears of Destiny]]'' when she enters the game world with this self-introduction.
--> '''Levi:''' I'm super strong! Super awesome! And super cool! I'm the Dark Materials' raid boss! The name's LEVI THE SLASHER! (strikes a ready-for-action pose with VSign)\\
'''[[LargeHamAnnouncer Alicia]]:''' It's now Team T&H's chance to talk about how much they want to win. \\
'''Fate:''' [[LampshadeHanging We can't compare to that...]]
* ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'':
** [[NationsAsPeople Italy]] is introduced like this:
--->'''[[DrillSergeantNasty Germany]]:''' Now, if anyone has something to say, please raise your hand in a way that does not mock any salutes of my country's past.\\
(''hand floats slowly onto the screen'')\\
'''Germany:''' [[ThirdPersonPerson Germany]] recognizes his friend Italy!\\
** [[InferioritySuperiorityComplex Prussia]]'s first named appearance begins with this:
--->'''Prussia:''' SUCK IT, [[JerkAss LOSERS]]! I AM PRUSSIA AND YOU ARE NOT!
** The first episode focusing on the [[ADayInTheLimelight Allies]] begins with this line from [[LoveFreak America]]:
--->'''America:''' I call this one "Attack Plan Alpha", like "alpha dog", [[MemeticMutation WOOF]]!
* ''[[Anime/YuGiOh Yu-Gi-Oh!: Duel Monsters]]'': As soon as you hear the two track bellow of "YYYUUUGGGIIIOOOHHH!" you know [[Creator/DanGreen DAN GREEN!!!]] has shifted gears from Child to [[LargeHam Ham]].
* A much more nightmarish version occurs in the last episode of ''Anime/MekakucityActors''; the transition from screaming to a booming, echoing laugh as [[spoiler:the Wide-Open Eyes Snake takes control of Konoha's body]] signals the arrival of the series' BigBad and most dreaded figure, [[spoiler:Kuroha]].

[[folder:Card Games]]
* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' trading card game:
** In the "Molten Core" raid deck, whoever's playing the raid deck is encouraged to do this when the final boss appears. "Behold Ragnaros -- The Firelord! He who was ancient when this world was young! Bow before him, mortals! Bow before your ending!"
** The card comes by it honestly. The Firelord neutral class in ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}} III: The Frozen Throne'' is quite a LargeHam -- his summoning quote is a ShoutOut to ''VideoGame/{{Sinistar}}''.
* ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'':
** The joke set ''Unhinged'' has a card called "Carnivorous Death Parrot" that requires the player to read its flavor text at the start of every turn to keep the creature in play... the text "Save a kill spell to deal with this guy." (It makes sense when you see the picture.) There's also Infernal Spawn of Evil: "It's coming!" as well as "Ach! Hans, run!"
** "Save a kill spell to deal with this guy" is a drawback -- five cards in the same set have the ability "whenever an opponent says [either of the words in this card's name], you may say 'Gotcha!' and return this from your graveyard to your hand". The death-parrot triggers all five. It triggers six if your rules-meister considers 'to' to be a homophone of 'two'...

* In his later performances, Creator/SamKinison would often walk on stage screaming, one time even chained like a wild animal.
* When Creator/JeffDunham brings Achmed the Dead Terrorist out, he announces himself to the audience with "GREETINGS, INFIDELS!"

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* "'''The ComicBook/FantasticFour!!''' Hah! Little do they dream they are naught but '''pawns''' in the hands of '''DOCTOR DOOM!'''"
** This line was delivered while holding Fantastic Four-shaped [[ChessMotifs chess pieces]] with a vulture perched next to him, surrounded by books entitled "DEMONS" and "[[MadScientist SCIENCE]] AND [[MagicKnight SORCERY]]", and sitting in a throne in the [[ElaborateUndergroundBase underground lab]] of [[HauntedCastle his old world castle]]. So, a relatively restrained moment.
** Indeed, '''DOOM''' speaks [[NoIndoorVoice in all caps]]. This is ''{{canon}}'', as ComicBook/CaptainAmerica asked him how he manages to do it in ComicBook/JMSSpiderMan run.
** ''ComicBook/MarvelAdventures'' demonstrates that his idea of a casual entrance involves [[ThereWasADoor blowing up walls]] (while exclaiming "Behold the grim visage of '''DOOM'''"). When Spidey complains that most people would use the door, he dismisses the idea as being for peasants.
* Admittedly, ComicBook/{{Darkseid}} has an announcer for most of that. "On your knees for the master! The hour has come! He has come! Who is beyond good and evil? Who is the prophet of Anti-Life? Who is the rock and the chain and the lightning? All powerful! All unforgiving! All conquering! Who is your New God now and forever?"
-->'''Darkseid:''' Darkseid is.
* ''ComicBook/TheMightyThor'': "[[ComicBook/UltronUnlimited Ultron! We would have words with thee!]]". If Thor and/or ComicBook/TheIncredibleHercules is on a team of Avengers, you can count on these kinds of moments frequently.
* [[Comicbook/TheUnbelievableGwenpool Gwenpool's]] very first comic book panel had her bursting through a door with a motorcycle while yelling [[https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/25/0d/cf/250dcf62405a69fd77944680fcc89490.jpg "HELLO WORLD!"]]

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* ''Fanfic/SaviorofDemons'': [[{{Narcissist}} Haabu.]] Announcing his presence to the entire planet wasn't enough, no, he had to land in the middle of a city and challenge [[FakeUltimateHero Mr. Satan]] to a match after the latter [[DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu inadvertently called him out]] as a [[YourCostumeNeedsWork fake alien.]]
* ''Fanfic/MyImmortal'': "What the hell are you doing you motherfukers!"
* [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} Bender:]] "[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3295974/1/The_Real_Decoy DID SOMEBODY CALL FOR A SAVIOR??????]]"
* ''FanFic/NobodyDies'': "Boom for the boom god!"
* ''Theatre/AVeryPotterMusical''
** "Did somebody say DRACO MALFOY?" is probably the best example from the show, though Snape has one in every scene he appears. ("WHAT THE DEVIL IS GOING ON HEERRRE?!")
*** The "Draco Malfoy" gets special mention because nobody had actually said "Draco Malfoy." Draco's cue line was "Now let's leave these big baby childish jerks alone" before [[CrosscastRole s/he]] interrupts the scene.
** In the sequel, Goyle has a triple Incoming Ham moment which references ''three'' different Incoming Ham in a row: "WHO DARES DISTURB MY SLUMBER? GET OVER HERE! IT'S CLOBBERING TIME!"
* ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'': "'''ATTENTION DUELISTS!''' My hair is making an entrance!"
* ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'': "I'M BACK, [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch BITCHES!]]"
** also: "...mineminemineMineMineMineMINEMINEMINE!!!"
** And this gem from ''Super Android 13 Abridged'': '''FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS, I LAY DORMANT. WHO HAS DISTURBED MY-"
-->'''Goku:'''Hey, best buddy!
* ''Fanfic/PowerRangersGPX'': "HELLO, RRRANGERS!!!"
* ''WebAnimation/TurnaboutStorm'': "'''HAHAHAHAHA!''' WeMeetAgain, Twilight Sparkle!"
* ''Fanfic/KyonBigDamnHero'': Inverted with [[LargeHam Taniguchi]] saying a YouExclamation and [[GivingSomeoneThePointerFinger pointing his finger]] to Kunikida when they meet in the 2-5 classroom, because it was Kunikida who was arriving both to the classroom and the scene (Taniguchi wasn't the focus in the scene beforehand, silently practicing [[QuitYourWhining his speech]] for when Kunikida arrived, making it Taniguchi's first action in the scene). It had the same effect than a straight use, however.
* ''Fanfic/GloriousShotgunPrincess'': "Hello! I MAY HAVE TAMPERED WITH THE VOLUME CONTROLS!"
* ''Fanfic/MovieNightAtFreddys'': '''''"Just what do you four think you're doing?"'''''
* ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'': “''Darlings''!”

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TheBraveLittleToaster'': "Good morning, good morning, gooooood morning!"
* WesternAnimation/{{Megamind}}'s entrance into the climax [[spoiler: (or rather, Minion disguised as Megamind)]] defines this trope, embraces it, and asks for extra pineapple slices. The following exchange happens at the top of a large skyscraper, amid a laser-light show with smoke effects, with thousands of flying robot minions forming the [[HugeHolographicHead illusion of Megamind's head]], and all to the already-pretty-epic beginning of Music/GunsNRoses' "Welcome to the Jungle".
-->'''Megamind:''' You dare challenge Megamind?\\
'''Titan:''' This town isn't big enough for ''two'' supervillains!\\
'''Megamind:''' Oh, you're a ''villain'' alright. Just not a ''super'' one.\\
'''Titan:''' Yeah? What's the difference?\\
(''the giant head's mouth opens, and the actual Megamind walks out on the tongue'')\\
'''Megamind:''' '' ''' PRESENTATION! ''' ''
* Pretty common for Disney characters, especially [[EvilIsHammy the villains]].
** ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'': [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R8SE87FClV0&feature=related "I LIIIIIIIIIIVE! So tell me what mortal needs my protection, great ancestor, you just SAY the WORD and I'm there."]] Creator/EddieMurphy is so many shades of awesome. So much he gets another: "'''DID I HEAR SOMEONE ASK FOR A ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zn_nM7x7Lcw MIRACLE?!]]'''''"
** Scar, from ''Disney/TheLionKing'': [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A57NVGJUGt4 "Life's not fair is it... you see, I shall never be king, and you... shall never see the light of another day! Adieu..."]]
** The Genie in ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'': '''"Oi!''' '''''TEN-THOUSAND YEARS''''' '''WILL GIVE YOU''' '''''SUCH''''' '''A CRICK IN THE NECK!"'''
** Jafar in "[[Disney/{{Aladdin}} The Return Of Jafar]]:" "'''I'M FREE! FREE TO EXACT REVENGE ON HE WHO HAS IMPRISONED ME!'''"
** ''Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove'': "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2CmEqtPOFFw What's his name?]] KUZCOOOOOO!"
** ''Disney/SleepingBeauty'': Enter the villain, unleashing a torrent of green netherworldly fire. That's how to make an entrance.
*** Enter the villain, unleashing a torrent of green netherworldly fire yelling, '''"Now shall you deal with ''me'', O Prince... and all the powers of HELL!!!!"''' right before [[ScaledUp Scaling Up]]. Now '''''that's''''' how to make an entrance.
*** Also done in live-action through ''Film/{{Maleficent}}'', and with more ham as Maleficent adds a nonchalant "well, well". Not her first scene, but still qualifies for being the [[StartOfDarkness public debut of Maleficent's evil version]].
** ''Disney/AliceInWonderland'': '''"WHO'S BEEN PAINTING MY ROSES RED?!"'''
** ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'': "How sentimental. You know, I haven't been this choked up since I got a hunk of moussaka caught in my throat! Huh? So is this an audience or a mosaic? Hey, how you doin'? Lookin' good. Nice dress."
** ''Disney/TheJungleBook'': "That's what frieeeeeeeeends...[[EvilSoundsDeep aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaare for.]]"
* Thrax in ''Film/OsmosisJones'': "Careful... I'm contagious!" And only a couple seconds later: "[[BondOneLiner Think I'll turn up the heat in here."]] (EvilLaugh and UnflinchingWalk.)
* Syndrome in ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'': "Iiiit's bigger. Iiiits better. Ladies and gentlemen, it's '''TOO MUCH FOR MR. INCREDIBLE!'''"
** And at the end of the film: "'''[[NoIndoorVoice BEHOLD, THE UNDERMINER!]]'''"
* ''Westernanimation/MonstersInc'' has Randall first appearing by "uncloaking" from his camouflage and shouting "WAZOWSKI!" to startle Mike.
* When ComicBook/TheJoker finally meets up with the Suicide Squad and Batman in ''Westernanimation/BatmanAssaultOnArkham'', he announces his arrival by firing several shots in the room and screaming, "I'M HERE, [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch BITCHES!]] AND I BROUGHT FAVORS FOR EVERYBODY!" before unleashing dozens of exploding marbles.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'':
** Jack Sparrow's and Davy Jones's grand entrances in the [[Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanTheCurseOfTheBlackPearl first]] and [[Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanDeadMansChest second]] films establish their mystique.
** Davy Jones even [[HammyHerald provides one]] for the (not so articulate) Kraken:
--->'''Davy Jones:''' Let no joyful voice be heard! Let no man look up at the sky with hope! And let this day be cursed by we who ready to wake... the KRAKEN!
** While he starts out a little understated, you know Blackbeard's about to unleash when he first enters.
* ''Film/PulpFiction'': Before Creator/SamuelLJackson asked Brett to "SAY WHAT AGAIN!" he "DON'T REMEMBER ASKING YOU A GOD DAMN THING!". Cue the introduction to the general public one of the [[LargeHam biggest hams]] in the history of film.
* ''Film/TheFifthElement'' "KORBENNNNNNNNNNNN DALLLLLLLLLLLLLLASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!" - or for that matter, any time Ruby Rhod enters a scene. Any time the camera cuts away from and back to him counts. [[RunningGag Sometimes even when the camera cuts from one shot of him to another]].
* Richard Henry Lee's first (spoken) line in ''Film/SeventeenSeventySix'': "You sent for me, Benjamin". It's less of what he says and more of how he says it. Ron Holgate (Lee in the original Broadway production and the film) was American musical theater's version of Creator/BrianBlessed.
* Creedence Leonore Gielgud of ''Film/{{Troll 2}}'': ''This is MYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY house!''.
* ''Film/TransformersFilmSeries''
** "I... Am... MEGATRON!!!"
** [[BigDamnHeroes "Behold the eternal glory of... ''Jetfire''!"]] His actual introduction line, "What kind of hideous mausoleum is this?", also counts.
* ''Film/{{Dogma}}'': "Behold the Metatron, herald of the Almighty, and the voice of the one true God!"
** Though with a job title like that, you'd expect him to be somewhat dramatic.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Beowulf|2007}}'' "I'm here to kill your monster." Grendel does some of the same, only he says things like "Auaghghh! Auughaghhhh"
* ''Film/RoboCop1987'': Robocop when he busts the drug factory. The door first starts rattling, ''all'' of the bolts fall out, and it lands with an incredible WHAM as he's framed in HolyBacklight.
--> '''[=RoboCop=]:''' Come quietly... or there will be... '''TROUBLE'''.
* ''Film/TheSpirit'': "I'm gonna kill you all kinds of dead!"
* ''Film/InglouriousBasterds'': [[UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler "NEIN, NEIN, NEIN!"]]
* ''Film/{{Braveheart}}'', [[UpToEleven quite a lot]]
* ''Film/{{Blade}}'': "FROOOOOOOOOOOOOOST!!!!!!"
* See the English dub of 1994 martial arts frolic ''Film/FistOfLegend'' for the single most overstated instance of the word '''''Bullshit!''''' in the history of film.
* CROKER!!! in ''Film/EvilAlienConquerors'' stomps into a restaurant and starts screaming at the diners. Why? Because he's CROKER!!!
* ''Film/{{Hellraiser}}'': "The box. You opened it. We came."
* The local radio DJ in ''Film/GroundhogDay'' "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MkxOYcG9NrY Okay, campers, rise and shine! And don't forget your booties 'cause it's coooooold out there today!...]]"
** Given that every day of his GroundhogDayLoop begins with a clip of Sonny & Cher's "I Got You Babe" and this spiel, Phil soon grows to hate his voice with a passion.
* ''Film/TenaciousDInThePickOfDestiny'': [[spoiler:Satan]] in the finale.
-->'''[[spoiler:Satan]]: I AM COMPLETE!'''\\
'''JB''' and '''KG:''' ''♪ [[ThisIsGonnaSuck Fuuuuuuuuuck...]] ♪''
** [=JB=], and by extension, the movie itself, starts:
-->'''JB:''' ''♪ A long-ass fucking time ago in a town called Kickapoo... ♪''
* Whenever Stanley becomes Film/TheMask, he delivers one of those, starting with what would become his CatchPhrase: "SSSSMOKIN'!"
* ''Film/MightyMorphinPowerRangersTheMovie'': Ivan Ooze manages to steal the spotlight from Lord Zedd and Rita Repulsa. No mean feat, considering they were pretty massive hams to begin with.
-->'''Ooze:''' LAAAAAAAAAADIES AND GENTELEMEN. [[PunctuatedForEmphasis The OOZE. IS. BACK!]]
* ''Film/{{Star Trek VI|The Undiscovered Country}}'': "I can see you, Kirk. Can you see me?"
* ''Film/GoodMorningVietnam'': Robin Williams plays a radio host. What else would you expect from him?
* ''Film/ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld''
** Also "Guess who's drunk!"
** "You punched me in the ''boob!'' Prepare to die, obviously!"
** "Now you listen close and you listen hard, bucko. The next click you hear is me hanging up. The one after that... is me pulling the trigger."
* The Guardian, the bad guy in ''Film/HighlanderTheSource'', introduces himself to Duncan by zipping up to him and screaming, "THIS IS THE END OF TIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIME!" Duncan's reaction face is priceless.
* John Malkovich in ''Film/{{Eragon}}''. "I suffer without my stone. DO NOT PROLONG MY SUFFERING!"
* Kelly [=LeBrock's=] smoky "So....what would you little maniacs like to do first?" in ''Film/WeirdScience''.
* Creator/KevinSpacey in ''Film/{{Se7en}}'': "Detective. Detective. '''DETECTIIIIIIVE'''! You're looking for me."
* Creator/TomHiddleston as Loki introduces himself to a crowd of terrified Germans in ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'': [[KneelBeforeZod "Kneel before me.]] I said... '''''KNEEL!!!"'''''
** Film/IronMan arrives to the strains of Music/{{ACDC}}'s "Shoot to Thrill", which he transmitted into the radio communicator of the SHIELD quinjet and repulsor blasts Loki off his feet and aims all the gajillion guns embedded in his suit at him. The line itself, "Agent Romanov, you miss me?" is understated. Tony likes to talk with his actions and BGM.
* ''Film/JudgeDredd'': [[Creator/SylvesterStallone Dredd]] shouting "I AM THE LAUWH".
* ''Film/BlueVelvet'' has the memorable villain introduce himself with '''SHADDAP!''' It's ''' 'DADDY', SHITHEAD!'''"
* The Great Goblin in ''Film/TheHobbitAnUnexpectedJourney''; both in the theatrical ("Who would be so bold as to come armed into ''my'' kingdom? Spies? ''Thieves?! '''Assassins?!'''''") and extended ("I feel [[VillainSong a song]] coming on...") cuts of the film.
* Creator/KennethBranagh has at least two good ones.
** In ''Film/WildWildWest'', Arliss Loveless emerges from an exploding model of UsefulNotes/AbrahamLincoln saying "Don't yew just haaaate thay-ut song?" complete with 720 degrees of eye-rolling. Then he rides his wheelchair doing a hammy speech.
** In ''Film/HarryPotterAndTheChamberOfSecrets'', he arrives at a library just smiling under lots of cameras, and is still confirmed as a gigantic ham.
* And speaking of Harry Potter, when a troll gets into Hogwarts in [[Film/HarryPotterAndThePhilosophersStone the first movie]], how does everyone find out?
--> '''Quirrel:''' '''TROOOOOOOOLLLLLLL!!! IN THE DUNGEOOOON! TROLL IN THE DUNGEON!''' ''(stops in front of Dumbledore)'' Thought you ought to know. ''(faints)''
* ''Film/IntoTheWoods'': When the Baker notices that the Witch from next door (played by Creator/MerylStreep) is paying them a visit, it's immediately followed by the bakery door being blown down, a big flash of lightning, and rats scurrying from under the Witch's dress. Not to mention subsequent appearances, where she teleports in just to yell at the Baker and his wife.
-->"WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO CARES?!? Cow's gone!! Get it back!!"
* When the Film/{{Ghostbusters|1984}} get their first ghost-catching job, Janine promises that they'll be "totally discreet." So what happens when they show up?
--> '''Venkman:''' HEY, ANYBODY SEE A GHOST?
** While on Ghostbusters, [[Film/Ghostbusters2016 the 2016 movie]] has Holtzmann introducing herself by making clear she's quirky [[LipstickLesbian and possibly interested in Erin]]:
--> '''Theatrical Cut''': [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-dD9fbEWWzE Come here often?]]\\
'''Extended cut''': You carry a lot of tension on your shoulders. ''(going for Erin's hand)'' Holtzmann. Virgo. Avid skier. Gluten-full. And 100% jazzed to meet you.
* Most villains in Film/{{Batman}} movies.
** ''Film/{{Batman}}'': "It's me, Sugar bumps. (...) Jack? Jack is dead, my friend. You can call me... Joker. And as you can see, I'm a lot happier. "
** ''Film/BatmanReturns'': "I believe the word you're looking for is... AAAAAAAGH!" and "I am Catwoman. Hear me roar."
** ''Film/BatmanForever'': " You're counting on the winged avenger to deliver you from evil, aren't you, my friend?" and "I hope you made extra."
** ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'': "The Iceman Cometh!", "Ladies and gentlemen of the un-United Nations. And our mystery bidder." and "Hello, Jason. I think I've had a change of heart. "
** ''Film/TheDarkKnight'': "(EvilLaugh) And they say ''my'' jokes are bad!"
** ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises'': "No one cared who I was until I put on the mask."
* In the first ''Film/{{Friday}}'' film, Craig's best friend [[TheStoner Smokey]] first appears by popping his upper body through Craig's window, ripping down the curtain and shouting '''"Break yo self, fool!"'''
* Unokichi in ''Film/TheLowerDepths1957'' makes his entrance by singing a song loudly and horribly out of tune while dancing wildly and thumping on a drum with a cudgel, and proclaiming his release from jail at the top of his voice.
* ''Film/{{Rampage|2018}}'' has both Brett Wylden, introduced spouting {{Angrish}} while whacking a space station model, and Agent Russell, who like with Ruby Rhod above, arguably counts in every scene he enters.

* There is a joke, which not only requires much Ham to be properly told, but is almost a literal example:
-->"It's COMING!"\\
"What 'it'?"\\
"The WIENER SCHNITZ--" ''(vomit)''

* Esmé in ''Literature/ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents'' gave her full name, usually to people who already knew it.
* '''Literature/TheBartimaeusTrilogy''
** Bartimaeus has a bad habit of doing this. The first time he arises from the pentacle in a whirl of malicious special effects and spouts off a three-line list of titles, it's rather impressive. Thereafter it becomes progressively hammier as new achievements of dubious accuracy get added to the list, especially since we only see him do it with the one guy who's heard the spiel already.
** At one point he says that djinn in general like to constantly top themselves when it comes to entrances, both for fun and because a flashy entrance can startle an unprepared magician enough for them to mess up the summoning, allowing the summoned creature to get their vengeance.
* In Creator/DavidEddings' ''Literature/TheElenium'' series, the Child-Goddess Aphrael definitely enjoys her drama, but she only steps into this territory when one of the knights complain about her tendency to teleport in right next to them/behind them, and nearly scare them out of their full-plate armor. Her next appearance is prefaced by a ''divine symphony of trumpet fanfares''. Just to let them know she's coming.
* Spiro's '''HOY!''' in ''Literature/MyFamilyAndOtherAnimals''.
* In ''Literature/ThisBookIsFullOfSpidersSeriouslyDudeDontTouchIt'', John, after vaulting the asylum wall in the [[AllegedCar Caddie]] shouts, "DID SOMEONE ORDER SOME FUCKING PRISON BREAK WITH A SIDE OF SHOTGUN?"

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/OurMissBrooks'': Mr. Conklin usually enters with characteristic bluster.
* Pictured above: Douglas Reynholm's EstablishingCharacterMoment from ''Series/TheITCrowd''. Nothing says '''LargeHam''' like this dude arriving late to [[spoiler:[[TheFunInFuneral his dad's funeral]]]], slamming open the church doors, [[GlassesPull taking off his sunglasses]], making sure he's got everyone's attention and -- right before spectacularly running up the isle, knocking down the casket ''and'' getting into a slap fight with the vicar -- MilkingTheGiantCow and {{Skyward Scream}}ing at the top of his lungs: "'''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eP7LHHR91lE FFFAAAAAAAAAAATHEERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!]]'''"
* ''Series/TheMightyBoosh'': Not a one liner, but [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p5Nz3MhQ92k Bob Fossil's entry]] in the Stage Show fits this trope nonetheless. It's over the top, it's noisy, it announces the presence of a LargeHam... the only difference is that it goes on for longer.
* ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'':
** Doctor Forrester's first appearance in any episode is usually announced with some variation on "Hello, booby," or another insulting nickname for Joel or Mike.
** Then when Pearl took over as the major BigBad, she would often greet Mike while making fun of his name, such as: "Oh hi Nike Smelson."
** [[AlienInLosAngeles "MMMMMIKE!" 'MMMMMIKE!"]]
* Gene Hunt (of ''Series/{{Life On Mars|2006}}'' and ''Series/AshesToAshes'') gets ''a lot'' of these. (The phrase "armed bastards", while well known, has only actually featured twice.)
* Squiggy's nasal "Hallooooo!" every time he and Lenny would [[DropInCharacter drop in]] on ''Series/LaverneAndShirley''.
* ''Series/WillAndGrace'': "Hey, friends, lovers, mothers and other strangers, you are not going to believe what happened to me..."
* In ''Series/DoctorWho'', particularly the new series, the first appearance of a Dalek in a story is always accompanied by the all-purpose CatchPhrase "EXTERMINATE!"
** Variations include "HALT! STAY WHERE YOU ARE! YOU ARE A PRISONER OF THE DALEKS!", and so forth.
** [[spoiler:In ''Journey's End'', some Daleks in Germany use the battle cry of "EXTERMINIEREN!".]]
** In all his appearances, TheMaster tends to announce himself with "I am the Master, and you will obey me."
*** Though that's nothing compared to the Master's introduction in "Last of the Time Lords". You don't have it hammier than rocking your way into your flying SupervillainLair while singing to the Scissor Sisters about your FoeYay with your ArchEnemy. And broadcasting the music to the entire planet.
** The Captain's introduction in ''The Pirate Planet'': "MR. FIBULI! MR. FIBULI! BY ALL THE X-RAY STORMS OF VIGA, '''WHERE''' IS THAT NINCOMPOOP?!"
** Timothy Dalton with '''Gallifrey RISES!''' whilst spitting all over the camera.
** Captain Jack's return to the show: '''"DOOOOOOOOOOOCTOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOR!"'''
* Subverted on ''Series/{{Scrubs}}''. Dr. Kevin Casey, played by Michael J. Fox, walks in dramatically and looks like he's about to give a one-liner... then stops, turns around, and comes back again. Then he stops, turns around, and comes back again, and J.D. reflects on his obsessive-compulsive disorder. Once he's made his entrance to his satisfaction, in lieu of a proper one-liner, he makes some comment about the crazy-strict rules he gave himself about entering the hospital.
* ''Franchise/StarTrek'':
** Q would sometimes deliver a portent just before materializing. "Au contraire, mon capitan! 'Eee's BAAAACK!"
** The Borg always state their mantra of assimilation before proceeding to tear things apart.
* ''Series/StarTrekVoyager''. Lonzak in the WorldOfHam holodeck program ''[[ShowWithinAShow The Adventures of Captain Proton]]''.
** The Doctor, in his Fair Haven priest getup, bursting in with a shout of "SINNERS!"
** Creator/GeorgeTakei, who heavily campaigned to star in his own spinoff ''Excelsior'', never got his wish; but he did get to sit in the Captain's chair in VOY's "Flashback". He only gets a handful of lines and milks them for all they're worth. "My...............''[[BigOMG Goooooooooooooooooooood.]]''"
-->'''[[http://docohobigfinish.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/voyager-season-three.html Doc Oho:]]''' ''Takei walks through the smoke on the Bridge of the ''Excelsior'' like a dog sniffing out a sausage!''
* ''Series/TheWestWing'': President Bartlet's first appearance on the show is preceeded by his proclamation (in the full authoritative voice of the President), "I am the Lord your God! Thou shalt have no other gods before me." ItMakesSenseInContext, but ''wow''.
** Followed up with "Boy, those were the days, huh?"
** In Season two, White House Counsel Lionel Tribbey, an imposing man by any standard, makes his first entrance by bursting through a door shouting "I WILL KILL PEOPLE TODAY, LEO!", while brandishing a cricket bat that was given to him by Queen Elizabeth II.
** Also, basically every single entrance from Lord John Marbury.
* ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'': Kramer always entered Jerry's apartment with a dramatic slide - but it was postal employee Newman who had a recurring Ham whenever he entered a scene.
-->"Hello, ''Jerry''."
* [[ThisLooksLikeAJobForAquaman "This looks like a job for]] '''{{Superman}}!"'''
* Momotaros/Sword Form in ''Series/KamenRiderDenO'' has his {{catchphrase}} "Ore...Sanjou!" ("I have arrived!"), which he simply can't appear without saying. In ''[[Series/KamenRiderDecade All Riders vs. Dai-Shocker]]'', he even pushed a Mook out of the way just to make sure he got his catchphrase in. And God have mercy on you if you interrupt it!
* ''Series/TheLeagueOfGentlemen'':
** "Hello, hello? What's all this shouting? We'll have no trouble here!"
** "Hello, Daaaaaaaave?"
** "Okey-cokey, pig-in-a-pokey! Good morning, job seekers!"
* Janice from ''Series/{{Friends}}'': [[PunctuatedForEmphasis OH. MY. GOD.]]
* ''Series/WKRPInCincinnati'' subverts this brilliantly in one episode, where Les Nessman introduces a new opening theme to the news that's such of an Incoming Ham you expect it to be directed by Cecil B. Demille and voiced by James Earl Jones. He then begins the news in his normal squeak of a voice.
* [[TheAce Lord Flashheart]] from ''Series/{{Blackadder}}'' is such a LargeHam he does this twice; first he rappels into the corridor and declares "Iiiit's ME!" Then he enters the room and announces "Flash by name - Flash by nature! Hurrah!", a sentiment shared by all the cast except Edmund. He also has the brilliant "Enter, a man who has no underwear."
--> '''Lord [[PunnyName Flash]]:''' *offscreen* '''''HEY GIRLS! TAKE A LOOK AT MY MACHINERY!''''' *girls squealing off-screen - followed by Flashheart coming in through the door, [[SexyCoatFlashing adjusting his trousers]]*
** General Melchett occasionally gets this. In the second episode his entrances are proceeded with his signature "BAAAAAAAHHHH", the second instance even causing Blackadder to flatly utter "I'm dead."
** And of course, Creator/BrianBlessed himself.
* ''MightyMorphinPowerRangers'': Rita Repulsa was given one in the opening, cementing her status as a LargeHam before the show even began.
-->'''Rita Repulsa:''' '''AH!'''! After ten-thousand years, I'm free! It's time to conquer '''Earth'''!
* Jeremy Clarkson in ''Series/TopGear'' tends to be heard long before he appears;
-->'''Jeremy Clarkson:''' ''(from across the studio)'' That is DISGUSTING!\\
'''Richard Hammond:''' Oh, dear! I fear Jeremy may be heading this way with an opinion!
** And Jeremy arriving in a fast car;
--> '''Jeremy''': POOOWWEEEER!
* ''Series/{{Chef}}'' "HELLOO, RRROSBEEF!"
* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** In the last scene of episode 3, we're introduced to swordfighting instructor Syrio Forel, who's essentially played as a Spanish fop (albeit one who's also a MasterSwordsman) and says every single line as dramatically as possible. "JUST SO!"
** Drogon is a ''dragon'', so being big and bombastic is just in his nature. He never fails to announce his presence with a mighty roar before appearing.
* On ''Series/BoyMeetsWorld'', Eric enters the first episode of season 7 by jumping on the student center pool table and yelling "EVERYBODY LOOK AT MY HEAD!" (because he got an ImportantHaircut). This sets the tone for his [[{{Flanderization}} every more over the top]] CloudCuckoolander personality that season.
* On ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment'' GOB and Buster are impressed by rival magician "Tony Wonder" (Played by Ben Stiller) who only appears when someone uses the word "Wonder" at which point he tosses a smoke bomb, jumps out from hiding, and proclaims, "Did somebody say ''WONDER''?!"
* During a training exercise in Series/BandOfBrothers, Sobel abandons any form of stealth and decides to attack by tear-assing down a road (in a highly conspicuous leather jacket), pistol aloft, screaming ''"Hi-O SILVER!"''
* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'': The Trickster in "Hammer of the Gods" ("Can't we all just GET ALONG?") and when [[TrappedInTVLand entering the sitcom]] in "Changing Channels" right after having Castiel BlownAcrossTheRoom.
-->"Helloooo!" ''(audience goes wild)'' "Thank you! Thank you!"
* '''[[Series/GoodEats I'M LACTOSE MAN!]]''' Lever Man (played by the same actor in the same costume) has a similar entry.
* '''[[Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus NOBODY]]''' [[Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus EXPECTS THE SPANISH INQUISITION!]]
* ''Series/{{Community}}'': "Did someone say 'CRAZY PERSOOOOOOOOOOOON?!"
-->'''Everyone else:''' No.\\
'''Chang:''' ... Well, ''I'' heard it.
* In the first episode of each season of ''Series/RuPaulsDragRace'', the DragQueen contestants make their entrance into the work room one by one, thus giving them a prime opportunity to make a good first impression with their particular style. Most queens drop a one-liner or do some kind of SexyWalk in their finest drag, while others make it an ''event'':
--> '''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dL1d7kG3xv4 Laganja Estranga]]:''' Oh y'all wanted a twist, eh? [[MemeticMutation Come on Season Six]], let's get SICKENING!" *does a death drop in the doorway*
* ''Series/BabylonFive'':
** G'Kar usually announces his entry on stage by shouting the name of whoever he intends to speak to from across the room. Often before he appears on camera.
** Londo is an unabashed ham in any of his public appearances, though it is clearly an affectation; he is far more reserved in private. However, his cries for his "... good friend '''MEEEEESTER GARIBALDI!!!'''" are a sight to behold, even by his standards.

* "Alright, [insert city/venue here]! Yoooou wanted the best... You got the best! The hottest band in the world... '''[+Music/{{KISS}}+]'''!"
** The line, but not the trope, is subverted at some Music/GunsNRoses concerts: "Alright, [insert city/venue here]! Yoooou wanted the best... but they didn't make it. Here's what you get! From Hollywood... '''GUNS N [FUCKING] ROSES!'''"
* Peter Steele of Music/TypeONegative fame manages this in his earlier band, Carnivore. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_e9FbnyLldQ GREETINGS AND FELICITATIONS CHILDREN OF TECHNOLOGY!]]
* [[Music/OzzyOsbourne ALL ABOARD!! AHAHAHAHAH!]]
* [[Music/SexPistols Rrrrrrrrrrright... NOW]], [[EvilLaugh MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA!]]
* To show that he could be a fair replacement to Music/DavidLeeRoth at least in bombast, Sammy Hagar's first song with Music/VanHalen opens up with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3kfYWPquNMc "HELLO BAAAABYYY! YEEEEEEEEAH!"]]
* "[[Music/TheWall Good morning, Worm your honour!]]"
* Music/JudasPriest probably gave the best example ever in the opening line to ''Ram It Down'':
* [[Music/{{WASP}} Come on in...]] '''''[[EvilLaugh WAHAHAHAHAHA!]]'''''
* Music/{{Pitbull}} is usually introduced on both his songs and his guest appearances with an unmistakable "''[=whooooooHOO=]!!!''" [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w7vecVGepyE Here's a compilation]] of just some of them.
* Likewise with DJ Khaled, whose introduction sees him [[SayMyName shouting his name]] at full volume. It's even lampshaded on the Lil Dicky[=/=]Music/ChrisBrown song "Freaky Friday", where Dicky, after [[FreakyFridayFlip switching bodies with him]], shouts "I'M DJ KHALED! ...why am I yelling?"

[[folder:Pro Wrestling]]
* This trope is near universal in pro wrestling, as pretty much any time a wrestler enters the arena, whether for a match or to cut a promo, their music is going to play, loudly.
* '''[[Wrestling/RicFlair WWOOOOOOOO!!]]'''
* '''*EpicRiff.* [[ChickMagnet Ahh, ahh, Shawn!]]. [[Wrestling/ShawnMichaels I think I'm cute, I know I'm sexy.....]]'''
* '''[[Wrestling/{{WWE}} "IF YOU SMELLLLLLLLLL..]]. WHAT [+[[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson THE ROCK!]]+] IS COOKIN'!"'''

He would go on to use a lesser - but still very [[LargeHam hammy]] - version of this entrance throughout his time in the company.
* '''[[Wrestling/RonKillings THE TRUTH HAS SET ME FREE!!]]'''
* There's one man whose hamminess is so massive, it cannot be contained by mere ring announcers... He hails from GREEN BAY, WIIIIIIIISCONSIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIN... '''[[Wrestling/{{TNA}} MISTERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR ANDERSON!]]'''
** '''ANDERSON!'''
* '''[[Wrestling/ZackRyder WOO! WOO! WOO! YOU KNOW IT!]]'''

* Their theme music plays, out march the New Age Outlaws, and Wrestling/RoadDogg has a microphone in his hand to fill you in on why you should be so excited.
* '''"[[Wrestling/EnzoAndCass My name is Enzo Amore, and I am a certified G and a bonafide stud, and you CAN'T. TEACH. THAT! And this right here, this is Big Cass, and he's 7 foot tall, and you CAN'T. TEACH. THAT! Bada-boom, realest guys in the room! HOW YOU DOIN'?!]]"'''

* In the modern re-interpretation of ''The Imaginary Invalid'', Beralde is introduced when he marches on stage and announces to the other characters, "I WRESTLED A ''BEAR'' TODAY."
--> Toinette: Your shirt is all tattered!
--> Beralde: That's what happens when you GRAB LIFE BY THE BALLS.
* In the farce ''Murder in the Magnolias'', Hollywood actress Lotta Kargo makes her first entrance proclaiming "In two days, tomorrow will be yesterday!"
* MilesGloriosus makes his grand entrance in ''A Funny Thing Happened on The Way to the Forum'' with several {{fanfare}}s and this line: "Stand aside everyone! I take ''LARGE STEPS!''"
* ''Theatre/SeventeenSeventySix'' has Richard Henry Lee: "YOU SENT FOR ME, BENJAMIN?... HELLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOO JOHNNY!!!"
* ''Theatre/{{Rent}}'' has Maureen delivering this little gem when she arrives for her performance:
--> Maureen: *dramatically* JOANNE! Which way to the stage?!
** Likewise her equivalent character in ''Theatre/LaBoheme'' appears interrupting a relatively smooth set piece coming in to riotous music. Conventionally we're first aware of her when we hear her shrieking with forced laughter off-stage, and in higher budget productions she often makes her entrance in an actual horse-drawn carriage or, if the setting is updated, a fancy car.
* Depending on the production, Rum Tum Tugger from ''Theatre/{{Cats}}'' can potentially have multiple ones of these. Generally, his first entrance (as himself rather than a chorus cat) is signaled by a dramatic guitar riff and a one-liner or sound effect; if the production includes "The Aweful Battle of the Pekes and the Pollicles", he gets at least one mid-song entrance playing the bagpipes, and he even occasionally gets a dramatic entrance at the beginning of "Magical Mr. Mistoffelees", which is ''someone else's song''.
* The song "Dear Old Shiz" in ''Theatre/{{Wicked}}'' ends with Galinda dramatically singing a high note as she is rolled onstage, letting you know that young Galinda will be much sillier than the older Glinda that appeared earlier in the show.
** Elphaba makes a hammy entrance in "No Good Deed", in which she is raised up through the stage scream-singing "FIIIEEEROOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
* In ''Theatre/ThePiratesOfPenzance'', Mabel introduces herself with a coloratura cadence.
* The WorldOfHam that is opera is full of such examples, though ''Theatre/TheBarberOfSeville'' has a particularly memorable one with ''Largo al factum'', several bars of which are sung from off-stage before the baritone enters to sing this loud and flamboyant IAmSong. (Actually very useful for nervous singers to get into LargeHam mode before the audience can see them.)
* ''{{Theatre/Hamilton}}'' has ''two'' ham songs, ''Guns and Ships'' to introduce Lafayette ('''EV’RYONE GIVE IT UP FOR AMERICA’S FAVORITE FIGHTING FRENCHMAN!'''/ '''LAFAYETTE!''') and ''Yorktown'' to introduce [[note]]That's right,[[/note]] '''''[[spoiler:HERCULES MULLIGAN!!!]]'''''
** Three if you count the end of "Farmer Refuted" ("Silence! A message from the king, ''a message from the king'', '''a message frooom the kiiiiiing!'''") leading into King George III's introduction in "You'll Be Back"
** And another in "What'd I Miss":
--->'''Burr:''' "But someone's gotta keep the American promise, you simply must meet Thomas. Thomas!"
--->'''Chorus''': "''Thomas Jefferson's comin' hooooome...''"

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'': Sanger Zombolt takes the cake.
* ''VideoGame/CaveStory'' demonstrates this with the loveable [[spoiler:bar of soap,]] Balrog.
-->'''Balrog:''' ''(in the original language)'' [++HEEEEEEEYYYY!++]\\
'''Balrog:''' ''(in the fan-translation)'' [++HUZZAH!++]\\
'''Balrog:''' ''(in the Wii-version)'' [++OH YEAH!++]
* ''VideoGame/CosmicBreak'': The Game Masters always do this in each and every VS. Chaos event.
* ''VideoGame/CityOfVillains''
** In a mission where you are sent to stop the Circle of Thorns from summoning Baphomet, Bat'Zul's arrival is preceded by four waves of herald demons who announce his impending arrival. Talk about ego.
** For that matter, almost every Archvillain or Elite Boss or allies, and many boss-level enemies have a few lines to introduce themselves. Most of them aren't too pretentious, although Lord Nemesis! is behind everything.
* ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'': "Enter the Amazing Guy!"
* ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquer''
** "And he cried in a loud voice, 'Lazarus, come forth!' And Lazarus did arise from the grave...."
** "Kane Lives in death! Kane Lives in death!" "KANE... LIIIVEEEEEEESSSS!!!!!!!"
** All hero units (and some late game units) in the games announce their presence on the battlefield with this trope, especially the original Commando and Tanya.
* ''KingdomHearts''
** [[spoiler:Ansem/Xehanort's Heartless introduces himself: "It is I, Ansem, Seeker of Darkness."]]
** Maleficent gets one as well, when she goes into her OneWingedAngel dragon form: "THE TRU-U-UE DA-A-ARKNESS!"
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GA85IsVR6Zo WELCOME TO THE LEAGUE OF DDDRRAVENN.]]
* ''VideoGame/MakaiKingdom''
** Zetta's first line, being an impressive EvilLaugh along with a declaration that ''"[[NothingCanStopUsNow Nothing Can Stop Me Now!]]"'', qualifies for this trope in flying colours. Zetta then goes on to [[ChewingTheScenery ham up the next two scenes something fierce]] until he mellows down after [[MikeNelsonDestroyerOfWorlds destroys his own netherworld by being stupid.]]
** Zetta is later out-hammed by [[LargeHam King Drake the Third]], with his introduction of "I am the king of the universe! The galactic hero; the creator of all things, decently sized! Say my name if you know it! I am... [[StuffBlowingUp * dramatic explosion* ]]... '''KING DRAKE THE THIRD!'''" The fact that King Drake III is voiced by Creator/NorioWakamoto in the Japanese track (who is practically the Patron Saint of Hammy Seiyuu) helps.
* ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou'': Lots of Reapers demonstrate various levels of hamminess. Sho Minamimoto manages to beat them all out.
-->'''Minamimoto:''' Sooo Zetta Slow! How long does it take you to crack a Z-Class code! You factoring Hectopascals!
* Waka, from ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}''.
-->"Hark! The call of the heavens, the earth, the sea... They summon me forth to defeat evil! Waka, the gods' gift to man, is here! Bonjour!"
* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'': Every time Mettaton makes an entrance. '''"OHHHHHH YESSS!"'''
** Gets even better when he says it right as he's transforming into his EX form, as that time it's fully voiced.
* ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}}''
** ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}} II'': "[[TheUndead I'm aliiiiiiiiive!]]"
** ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}} III'': "[[StuffBlowingUp Mortaaar combaaat!]]" "[[DarkIsNotEvil At last, we shall have revenge.]]"
** All mere ''insects'' before Archimonde: "Tremble mortals, and despair! '''[[DoomyDoomsOfDoom DOOM]] has come to this world!'''"

* ''VideoGame/{{Sinistar}}'': '''"BEWARE! I LIVE!"'''
* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'': Every. Single. Raid. Boss. ''Ever.'' The top two are probably Kael and Malygos. Kael gives a hammy speech that lasts several minutes every time you engage him, and later returns to inform you that [[MemeticMutation He knows what you're thinking. But Tempest Keep was merely a setback!]] Malygos? '''WHAT COULD YOU POSSIBLY HOPE TO ACCOMPLISH HERE? TO EMPLOY MAGIC? AGAINST ME? [[EvilLaugh Bwahahahahahahaha!]]'''
** '''''[+YOU ARE NOT PREPARED!+]'''''
** Deathwing, in ''Cataclysm's'' [[http://youtu.be/Wq4Y7ztznKc?t=17s intro cinematic.]] The opening note of music, silence, then: '''"PAAAAAAAAAAIN! AAAAGONYYYYYYY! My hatred BUUUUURNS through the CAVERNOUS DEEP!"'''
** An interesting twist is in the Frost Lord Ahune encounter. When he is summoned, the player is the one delivering the lines - one of the rare instances in which the game makes a player character talk. Also done in the Headless Horseman encounter, actually. "Horseman rise/ Your time is nigh/ You felt death once/ Now, know demise!" There is never any other indication in the game that your character [[RhymesOnADime is the poetic sort.]]
** More recently, Ultraxion. I am the beginning of the end! The shadow which bolts out the sun! The bell which tolls your doom! '''For this moment ALONE was I made! [[LookOnMyWorksYeMightyAndDespair Look upon your death, mortals...and despair!]]''' Most of the dragons do this.
** In Mists of Pandaria, we have Lei Shen, the Thunder King. '''"You! You have earned my ire. I will make an example of you, such that all who look upon my might will tremble and SUBMIT!"''' Some of the Sha count as well, particularly Anger, who has an appropriate line each time he appears. [[StrikeMeDownWithAllOfYourHatred "Yes, YES! Bring your rage to bear! Try to strike me down!"]]
** One of the best parts of running Trial of the Crusader? Lord Jaraxxus, Who is possibly the king of making an entrance. '''"TRIFILING GNOME. YOUR ARROGANCE WILL BE YOUR UNDOING!, YOU FACE JARAXXUS! ERADAR LORD OF THE BURNING LEGION!!!"'''
* Any time in a ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' game when Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik introduces himself. Sonic and Shadow do this too, to a lesser extent.
** Robotnik's entrance line in ''Sonic Adventure'' gets extra ham points. "You know NOTHING, fool! It's '''CHAOS''', the '''GOD''' of '''DESTRUCTION'''!!" ...[[FridgeLogic kinda odd that Sonic doesn't hear him hamming it up that loudly on the rooftop]].
* Grahf does a bit of this in ''VideoGame/{{Xenogears}}'' whenever he shows up to ruin your day. Saying things like ''"Doth thou desire the power?"'' and ''"Blossom o fallen seed and grant unto thee the power of the glorious Mother of Destruction!"'' His [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome kicking tune]] doesn't hurt either.
* Magneto, in the ''VideoGame/XMen'' arcade game: "X-Men! Welcome... TO YOUR DOOM!"
-->"[[GratuitousEnglish WELCOME TO DIE!]]"
** That previous line was parodied in ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3''.
* ''VideoGame/BaldursGate'':
** The first game has the following line from Minsc when you first click on him: "Stand and deliver, that my hamster may have a better look at you!"
** And Xzar has: "Montaron! You are so AGGRAVATING! 'Tis disturbing to my DEMEANOUR!"
** In the sequel, if you weren't expecting Minsc to be hammy after his proclamation that the bars "BEND AND TWIST WITH [HIS] BERSERKER STRENGTH!!", there is very little that can be done to help you.
* Most of the characters have ham-tastic introductory animations before battles in ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIV''. But El Fuerte's grand declaration of '''"IT'S SUPERRRRR DYNAMIIIIIIC COOKING TIIIIIIIIIIIME!!!!!"''' contains enough ham to choke your arteries.
* The ''Franchise/MetalGear'' and ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' series. Pick your game:
** '''''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid "BRRRRROOOTHEEER!"]]'''''
** ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty "KILL ME]]'' '''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty NOW!"]]'''
** [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater "Welcome to my country...]] '''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater AND MY UNIT!"]]'''
** '''[[QuirkyMinibossSquad "WE ARE THE SONS OF THE BOSS!"]]'''
** [[SayMyName This]]:
-->'''Old Snake:''' '''''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DIfUB376xvU LIQUIIID!]]'''''\\
'''Liquid Ocelot:''' '''''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots SNAAAAAKE!]]'''''
** ''Any one'' of [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolidV Skull Face's]] intro lines, but especially "You too have known loss... and that loss torments you still! You hope hatred... might someday replace the pain! But it never goes away!"
** ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance "How pleased you are to chop away, Jack the Ripper!"]]''
** [[spoiler:[[FinalBoss "Well, if it isn't Saucy Jack! Just a little too late... as usual."]]]]
* [[EvilChancellor Vice President]] Richard [[MeaningfulName Hawk]] from ''VideoGame/MetalWolfChaos'': "Hello hello hello, hello, Michael! How's life treating you?" He also has a habit of using EvilLaughter for the same purpose. His first line in the game is evil laughter, and sets the tone for his performance.
** '''''HOW DO YOU LIKE ME NOW???!?!?!?!?!?'''''
* Everyone in ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' has their hammy moments, some more than others, so many of their "battle cry" lines -- uttered at the beginning of every round -- count as this. Especially the Heavy and Demoman. Also, the Heavy's Übercharge lines, given the context. "IS GOOD TIME TO RUN, COWARDS!"
** For the game itself it was [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yj-Ds70Mhn8 "I am Heavy Weapon's Guy"]], and then the ham just kept coming
** [[https://wiki.teamfortress.com/w/images/d/df/Heavy_incoming03.wav?t=20100625224334 This line says it all]] and this says [[https://wiki.teamfortress.com/w/images/c/c5/Heavy_sandwichtaunt06.wav?t=20100625221932 the rest]].
** The Heavy had a literal example as he made his grand entrance in "Meet the Spy".
** Merasmus the Magician has several lines for him to say when he arrives, and every single one of them is full of ham.
-->"[[TrrrillingRrrs MERRRASMUS]] ARRIVES IN A TIDE OF ''BLOOD''! [[MonsterRoommate Oh, hello Soldier]]."
** The fan-made, fan-voiced mod known as "Versus Saxton Hale Mode" pits the RED team against TestosteronePoisoning Incarnate Saxton Hale, who will always [[BadassBoast announce himself loudly]] [[PreAssKickingOneLiner at the start of every match]] with [[https://wiki.teamfortress.com/w/images/3/3d/Saxton_Hale_battlecry04.wav unbelievable amounts of cured pork in every line]].
* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'' (Advance translation), your first proper battle with [[BraggartBoss Gilgamesh]] is proceeded by:
-->''HA HA! [[InescapableAmbush Guess who's been hiding behind this door the whole time?]] Yes, it's me!''\\
''Took you long enough, too... [[FriendlyEnemy I was just getting worried you might have gotten lost!]]''\\
''Anyway! [[PreAsskickingOneLiner It's go time!]]''
** What is probably his most infamous line in the entire franchise:
-->"Enough expository banter! Now we fight like men! And ladies! And ladies who dress like men! For Gilgamesh...''IT IS MORPHING TIME!''"
::''Any'' time [[BraggartBoss Gilgamesh]] shows up, you can be guaranteed that there will be enough ham to feed a city block for a week.
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' has Ultros and Atma, and [[BoisterousBruiser Sabin]]
** Kefka has his fair share as well. His unique and immediately recognizable laugh precedes some of the greatest ham the series has ever served up.
* ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'':' "I am the man of love and justice, Bang Shishigami!" And while we're at it: "I am the white void. I am the cold steel. I am the just sword. With blade in hand shall I reap the sins of this world and cleanse it in the fires of destruction. I am Hakumen. The end has come!"
* ''VideoGame/DawnOfWar''
** The opening cutscenes for the games let you know [[WorldOfHam just how dramatic the game is going to be]] (true to its source, ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}''), so they're the games' Incoming Ham line in a sense.
** There are also these two lines in the ''Dawn of War II'''s opening cutscene:
-->'''Eldar Farseer:''' You lost this war before you even started, fool.\\
'''Space Marine Captain:''' ''(in the absolute loudest scream possible)'' TAKE COVEEEEEEEEERRRRRRR!
** The Assault Marines in the first ''Dawn of War'' were rather fond of shouting "[[DeathFromAbove DEATH FROM ABOOOOOOVE!!]]" while activating their jump packs, followed by crashing down onto whoever was unlucky enough and unleashing the full force of ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'''s [[UpToEleven extra-strong]] brand of ChainsawGood.
** In addition, in ''Dawn of War II'' every single boss creature except [[HordeOfAlienLocusts Tyranid beasts]] gleefully indulges in this.
* From ''VideoGame/ShadowHeartsCovenant'': [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7YKb06ERDYs CHAMPION OF TRUTH AND JUSTICE... GRAND PAPILLON!!!]]. This coming from [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot a gay vampire wrestler who thinks he's a superhero.]]
* ''VideoGame/PunchOut'': Super Macho Man gives a truly hamtastic line when you first fight him;
-->"Are you ''READY?!'' 'Cause ''I'm'' gonna put on a ''SHOW!''"
* "You ''forget'' what it means to be 'human', Pius!" -- Alexander Roivas, ''VideoGame/EternalDarkness''
* ''VideoGame/{{BioShock|1}}'':
** "I am Andrew Ryan, and I'm here to ask a question: Is a man not entitled to the ''sweat'' of his ''brow''?"
* ''Videogame/CrashBandicoot3Warped'': "Mwahahahahahah... free, at LASSST!"
* ''[[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiBowsersInsideStory Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story]]'': "Did someone just page the King of Awesome?"
* ''VideoGame/{{Killzone}} 2'': Colonel Radec arrives to say "Haven't I killed ALL of you yet?"
** ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas: Old World Blues'': "[[EvilLaugh Ahahahaha]]! I am on-line once again! Tremble world before my electric heating coil of doom!" This coming from a '''toaster'''.
*** From the same DLC, Dr. Klein ''tries'' this intentionally on the PC, but gets distracted in the midst of scarfing down [[ChewingTheScenery scenery]] by the fact [[NoIndoorVoice someone messed with his volume knob]].
** ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'': If you side with the Brootherhood, [[spoiler:Liberty Prime is back online, as hamy as ever]].
* ''VideoGame/GodOfWar''
** "''You challenge '''me''', mortal? A GOD OF OLYMPUS?!''"
** Zeus' opening RousingSpeech in ''III'' definitely qualifies.
** "''Behold the GLORY of '''HELIOS!!'''''"
* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSpiritTracks'':
-->'''Malladus''': RELEAAAASE MEEEEEE!!!
* ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' is [[WorldOfHam rife with this,]] but special mention goes to '''[[VideoGame/DisgaeaHourOfDarkness Captain Gordon]], [[MemeticMutation DEFENDER OF EARTH!!!]]'''
** Setting the tone for the entire damn game: '''AGENTS ARE...''' '''''GO!!!!'''''
* ''Every'' unit says one of these lines upon being produced in ''VideoGame/StarCraft''.
-->"[[MilitaryMaverick Alright, bring it on!]]"\\
"[[TankGoodness Ready to roll out!"]]\\
"[[WarriorMonk My life for Aiur!]]"\\
"[[TheCorruption Live for the Swarm!]]"
** The Overmind, when it gives you a briefing at the beginning of Zerg campaign.
** Continued into ''VideoGame/StarcraftII''.
-->"[[GrenadeLauncher Let's have a blast!]]"\\
"[[TheAhnold Thor is here!]]"
* ''VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet'': '''I... AM AVALON CENTRIFUGE!'''
* ''[[VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeon Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time/Darkness/Sky]]'': "'''I HAVE FOUND YOU AT LAST! THE DEFILERS WHO ARE CAUSING... THE DISTORTION OF SPACE!'''"
* While damn near all capital ships in ''VideoGame/SinsOfASolarEmpire'' are hammy special mention goes to the Vulkuras Desolater... because... well... just listen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ry8jbwtAWoM to this]]... thats just what he says when he spawns...
* The Beast of ''VideoGame/HomeworldCataclysm'':
-->"[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TSOScp3dLDs&t=308s We liiive.]]"
* ''VideoGame/StarFox'': All of Star Wolf introduces themselves as different cuts of ham. First, Wolf (standard Large Ham) with the [[MemeticMutation memetic]] "Can't let you do that, '''Star Fox!!'''", then Leon (ColdHam) with "Andross has ordered us to take you down.", then Pigma ({{Jerkass}} Ham) with "Peppy! Long time no see!", and finally Andrew (FamilyHonor Ham) with "Andross' enemy is MY enemy."
* ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising'': '''Villians are no match for Pyrrhon!'''
** Let us not forget Hades' first appearance, in which he RIPS THE CREDITS OFF THE SCREEN, and introduces himself with "[[IronicEcho sorry to keep YOU waiting!]]", then proceeds to refer to you as "Pitty-Pat". Really, any time he speaks could qualify. "Good morning, do-gooders!" and "Paluteeeeenaaaa! Oh, pretty Paluteeenaaa! Can you hear me?" are particularly wonderful examples.
* Approach any named character in any of the [[VideoGame/WarriorsOrochi many]] ''[[VideoGame/DynastyWarriors Warriors]]'' [[VideoGame/SamuraiWarriors series]] [[VideoGame/DynastyWarriorsGundam of]] [[VideoGame/FistOfTheNorthStarKensRage games]] and prepare to be greeted by ham. Only natural, after all--all these games take place in their own WorldOfHam. Even the [[EliteMook generic officers]] will greet you with boasts and threats, ranging from the basic to the overblown, neatly underscoring that there is ''nothing'' understated about Koei's HackAndSlash mainstays. It fall short of PreAssKickingOneLiner because in some instances they're not expected to live long enough to ''finish'' their lines.
* Murray's introduction in ''VideoGame/Sly2BandOfThieves'' consists of him ''bellyflopping through a glass ceiling.
** '''Murray''': THUUUUNDER FLOOOP!!
* In ''VideoGame/YuGiOhCapsuleMonsterColiseum'', Marik's entrance is loud, evil, and hilariously over-the-top.
-->'''Marik:''' Ah, ''there'' you are, Pharaoh! Are you ready to lose ''everything'' you hold dear?
* [[VideoGame/HearthstoneHeroesOfWarcraft Being reduced to a card]] did nothing to cut Lord Jaraxxus' ham down.
-->''[[IAmYourOpponent You face JARAXXUS]]! EREDAR LORD of the BURNING LEGION!''
** Joining him in terms of hammy 'replace your hero' characters is Ragnaros when called up from Majordomo Executus' battlecry.
-->''TOO SOON! You have awakened me TOO SOON, Executus!''
* ''VideoGame/HeroesOfTheStorm'' has the Dragon Knight, who presumably relishes just being able to speak during his release from that statue.
* Blizzard loves this trope--in their recent game ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}, some characters will use their selection call to ham it up to the moon. Reinhardt especially loves to do this.
-->'''Reinhardt:''' Don't worry my friends, '''''I!''''' '''AM YOUR SHIELD!'''
* [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Tiesel Bonne]] by this point in ''VideoGame/MegaManLegends'' has already established himself to have as much ham as an [[Film/StreetFighterTheMovie M. Bison on rye]], but before attempting to blow The Flutter out of the sky he feels the need to not only laugh maniacally, but to [[https://youtu.be/2iSHdAbywLA?t=1m21s broadcast his laughter over the P.A. so Mega Man and Roll know what's coming.]]
* [[PsychopathicManchild Mister]] [[NoIndoorVoice Torgue]] of the ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'' franchise first introduces himself properly in the "Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage" DLC by [[DoNotAdjustYourSet hijacking Patricia Tannis' mostly-scientific announcement of a new Vault discovery]].
--> '''Mister Torgue:''' BOOOOOORING. You don't wanna hear about that, Vault Hunter! You wanna hear about ''loot!'' And ''pecs!'' AND ''EXPLOSIONS!'' I'm Torgue, and I'm here to ask you one question, and one question only: [[StuffBlowingUp EXPLOSIONS]]?\\
'''Tannis:''' Get off this ECHO frequency you protein-guzzling buffoon! I'm trying to convey--\\
* Tom Phan (AKA The Phantom) in ''VideoGame/MarioPlusRabbidsKingdomBattle'' is one of the only two characters in the game to have full voice acting, and he makes damn good use of it:
-->'''Phantom:''' ''HA!'' You think ''yours'' is a real mustache?!

** It doesn't really belong here--'''"OBJECTION!"'''
** Luke Atmey: "Zvarri!"

** Battler. Second arc. "Oh, that looks good! Why don't you [[ImAHumanitarian slice up your cow tits and make me a sandwich]]?"… No, really. [[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext It still doesn't make sense in context, by the way.]] Umineko is ''very'' weird.

** Hearing [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XUhVCoTsBaM this]] is your first and only warning that ham is incoming in [[HoYay more than one way]].
** NO PATHETIC BOX CAN HOLD ME LIKE THIS! -- [[spoiler:Magnus the Red]], moments after blasting out of said box.
** GREETERLINGS! THIS IS A GOOD-LOOKING BEARD YOU HAVE THERE, SIR! -- [[spoiler:Kaldor Draigo]], who went just a ''bit'' more off the rocker than expected.
** [[DynamicEntry *CRASH*]] [[VocalDissonance Chapter Master!]] I, [[GloryHound Cato Sicarius]], would like to speak to you~! -- Cato Sicarius, ruining Papa Smurf's day just a little more.
** The dramatic appearance of [[spoiler:Horus]] in the April 1st joke episode, which followed him [[KillItWithFire roasting the Custodes to death with an explosion of fire]] for added emphasis:
* ''Webanimation/{{RWBY}}'' shows in Nora's first scene how she'll be the standout of a WorldOfHam, greeting her awakening friend Ren with "Wake up, lazy bud!" before jumping all over the room singing "♪It's morning! It's morning! It's morning! It's morning!♪". And that's before she rambles on and on without Ren even changing his expression.

* ''WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog'' introduces the egotistical Captain Hammer with a scene-stealing hero song atop a moving van, complete with MilkingTheGiantCow.
-->"''Stand back, everyone, nothing here to see!\\
Just imminent danger, in the middle of it me!\\
Yes, Captain Hammer's here, hair blowing in the breeze!\\
The day needs my saving expertise!'' *CRUNCH*
** Doctor Horrible himself first appears doing an EvilLaugh at the camera. But he's just demonstrating how well it's coming along.
* [[WebVideo/MonsterFactory IT'S TIME FOR]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kT2Y6ftxilM SUCCOTASH!]]
* ''Theatre/AVeryPotterMusical'': "WHAT THE DEVIL IS GOING ON HEEEEEEEERE?!" This immortal line was uttered by ''Snape''. In fact, Joe Moses in general, if ''Theatre/{{Starship}}'' is anything to go on, too.
* Radio/TrueCapitalist radio's host has this:
--> "Well folks, I think it's time for everyone's favorite part of the broadcast, AND AH'M TALKIN' ABOUT '''RADIO GRAFFITTIIIIII!''' HAHAHAHAAAA!"

-->"Oh God, he's foreign... Um, Hello, Neil! Very nice to meet you!"
* [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall 90's Kid]] always heralds his arrivals with one word: [[TotallyRadical DUUUUUUUUUUUUDE]]!!

* Alucard's triumphant return in episode 8 of ''WebVideo/HellsingUltimateAbridged'' is kicked off by him blaring Creator/AndrewWK's "Ready To Die" out of the loudspeakers of the ship he's on as it arrives in London.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* On the show ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'', Lemongrab makes his grand entrance by walking into the castle on a camel, and declaring, in a shrill, cracking scream: "This Castle Is... In... UNACCEPTABLE CONDITION! UNACCEPTABLLLEEE!!! THIRTY DAYS IN THE DUNGEON!!!"
* "''I am the terror that flaps in the night! I am the [[MadLibsCatchphrase (Noun) that (Verb)s your (Noun)!]] I am WesternAnimation/{{DARKWING DUCK}}!''" ...More often than not, tripping or otherwise spoiling the drama on the word "Duck".
* "By AllYourPowersCombined, I am WesternAnimation/{{Captain Planet|and the Planeteers}}!"
* ''{{Transformers}}''
** In ''{{Transformers}}: WesternAnimation/BeastWars'', Megatron ''does'' like to make an entrance, ''yessss''...
** On [[{{Transformers}} the original series]], Sky Lynx does this constantly, to the point that Springer nicknames him "Commander Modesty".
** "''[[WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime Decepticons, I have returned]]''!"
* ''WesternAnimation/MightyMouse'' was unable to enter a scene without bellowing, "Here I come to save the day!"
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderman'': "We... will have VENGEANCE... ON SPIDER-MAAAAN!! RAAAAAAAAAAGH!" Why couldn't Venom have been this awesome in ''Film/SpiderMan3''? [[ExecutiveMeddling Oh, yeah]].
* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/MegasXLR'', Coop acquires a videogame that is in reality a prison for giant monster criminals. As he "selects" the MonsterOfTheWeek:
-->'''Grrkek:''' You will rue the day you met Grrkek the Planet Killer!\\
'''Coop:''' Oh, ''rue the day''. Who talks like that? I'm gonna beat you down just for talkin' all weird!
* In the first episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Freakazoid}}'', when we see Dexter Douglas transform for the first time, Freakazoid promptly jumps at the camera and declares, "HELLO! I'M HERE IN THE SHOW!"
** ...which is topped by the opening segment of the series.
--->''Terror. Terror in the night. The whipping, howling, unforgiving winds CRASH into the clouds and rain falls no matter where you turn. There is no escape. No escaping the true horror...

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}''
** Every time Lrrr enters a scene, he needs to announce that he is '''''RULER OF THE PLANET OMICRON PERSEI 8!''''', even if he's trying to be anonymous. Even as a bear he has to announce that he is Brr, '''''DEVOURER OF FISH AND HONEY''''' in "Natrurama".
** Professor Farnsworth typically first proclaims, "''GOOD NEWS, EVERYONE''!"
** Morbo always [[ThirdPersonPerson refers to himself in the third person]]! 90% of his lines are about how inferior humans are.
* "There's no need to fear, WesternAnimation/{{Underdog}} is here!"
* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'''s Mad Stan's (voiced by [[Music/BlackFlag Henry Rollins]]) philosophy in life, CatchPhrase and first line in the series are all the same four words: "[[MadBomber BLOW IT ALL UP!]]"
* In a ''WesternAnimation/StaticShock'' episode where Richie was kidnapped by Ebon, Static [[BigDamnHeroes bursts into]] the hideout with a loud [[NarmCharm "SOMEONE SAY MY NAME?!"]]
* ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' has several of these. Ironically, Zim, who is in an almost constant state of ChewingTheScenery, does not.
** "I am THROBULATOR! Being of pure headache!"
** "Not now son. [[PunctuatedForEmphasis I'm making TOAST!]]"
** "Dib took the last soda. He will '''pay'''."
** Tak subverts the trope... for about ten seconds, until just after she's introduced herself. Then:
-->'''Tak:''' My father's the head of the DEEEEE-licious Weenie Corporation, '''SO I BROUGHT VALENTINE'S WEENIES FOR EVERYONE!''' ''(commence tide of weenies)''
** While it's not his first line in the series (by far), GIR's "GUESS WHO MADE WAFFLES?!" in Zim Eats Waffles qualifies.
* [[WorldOfHam Almost everybody]] in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' has hammy first lines, but the Music Meister raises the bar [[UpToEleven exceedingly high]] by introducing himself with a [[VillainSong musical number]].
* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'': "[[MrExposition Long ago in a distant land]], I, [[LargeHam Aku]], the [[BigBad Shapeshifting Master of Darkness]], unleashed an '''UNSPEAKABLE EVIL'''! BUT, a foolish samurai warrior wielding a magic sword stepped forth to oppose me. Before the final blow was struck, I '''[[{{Narm}} TWOAH]]''' open a portal in time, and flung him into TheFuture, where [[EvilOverlord my evil is]] '''[[EvilOverlord LAW]]'''! Now the fool seeks to return to the past, and undo [[BadFuture the future that is]] '''AH-KU'''."
* ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers''
** "Grand Galactic Inquisitor" is 12 feet tall and shines what amounts to floodlights from his Eye. His voice is so powerful, his voice can be felt "in [your] ''chonies''". However, his incoming line is "'''IGNORE ME!!!!!'''"
** [[BigBad The Monarch]] and [[DarkIsNotEvil Dr. Orpheus]] also have been known to make grand entrances. Most of Orpheus's early dialogue was underscored with ''trumpet fanfare''.
* Creator/MarkHamill's first appearance as the Joker in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' set the tone for his whole hammy run as the character by opening with his operatic rendition of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Veju4PxhuGc "Jingle Bells, Batman Smells."]]
** Then there's his entrance in WesternAnimation/BatmanMaskOfThePhantasm, where he [[ItMakesSenseInContext shoots up a wall of singing theme-park robots with a tommy gun]].
-->'''Joker''': I ''hate'' that song.
** And his appearance in {{WesternAnimation/Justice League}} as the [[WildCard unsolicited]] final member of Luthor's gang:
-->'''Solomon Grundy''': [[InadvertentEntranceCue [Luthor,] You're crazy.]]
-->'''Joker''': And what's wrong with that? It's done wonders for me!
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'':
** The titular character always yells something akin to "Hello, friends/buddies/pals!" while entering the scene in extravagant ways like floating down from the sky with an umbrella, crashing a kick-scooter into the couch or suddenly popping out of a conveniently placed box.
** In the French dub, Olaf the penguin always yells something which translates to "Bow down before your emperor!" whenever he enters the scene. Nobody ever obeys this, and in some cases Mr. Cat even goes as far as beating him up.
* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', [[RealityWarper Discord]] announces his presence via a silkily taunting, teasing disembodied voice, but doesn't actually appear, so it's not an example. When he shows himself in person with {{evil laugh}}ter and lightning in the background [[spoiler:after disappearing all the main cast's horns and wings]], ''then'' he gets hammy.
-->'''Discord:''' You should see the looks on your faces! PRICELESS!
** From much earlier, Nightmare Moon's entrance in "The Mare in the Moon".
** Princess Luna's entrance from "Luna Eclipsed".
** "Come one, come all! Come and witness the a''ma''zing magic of the ''[[TrrrillingRrrs Grrreat]]'' and ''Powerful '''[[ThirdPersonPerson TRRRIXIE]]'''''!" Bonus points for making her first appearance in a puff of smoke and sparks while her signature fanfare plays in the background.
** From the very first episode: A gasp. A gasp that lasts four seconds, lifts the gasping pony in the air, and then... she zips off screen. This is one of the longest delayed Incoming Hams, since she doesn't reappear until near the end of the episode--where we learn that this is Pinkie Pie, who invited the ''entire town'' over to the home of the NaiveNewcomer just to throw her a surprise welcome party. She only gets crazier from then on...
* [[WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow Ren and Stimpy]] has "POWDERED TOAST MAAAAAAANNN!!"
* The [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Warner Bros.]] cartoon ''The Mouse That Jack Built'' had the cast of ''The Jack Benny Show'' giving voice to their [[InkSuitActor cartoon likenesses as mice]], including Don Wilson who thinks he's doing a commercial. When Jack tells him it's a movie, Don suddenly goes into Shakespeare before Jack dismisses him.
