has Cade Masters, Twice Blessed ADVENTURER EXTRAORDINAIRE!
Leodegrance from The Bug Pond.
The universe of is a Girl Genius World of Ham:
OTHAR TRYGGVASSEN, Gentleman Adventurer! fits this, especially in the radio play, as lampshaded in this comic (of a radio play). Othar has been "kidnapped" by Ferretina, the Weasel Queen, famous for devouring young men, grilled with cheese. One of the closing questions is "And what kind of cheese goes best with grilled ham?"
Pushed even further into the zone of absolute hamminess by Cheyenne Wright portraying Othar in the audio plays.
Ferretina herself qualifies.
"I think it's the loneliness that makes a...person begin to have...strange thoughts. Thoughts that drive her to explore the twisted,
blasphemous back alleys of science. That allows - no - forces her to create monstrosities! Monstrosities fit only to unleash upon those sanctimonious villagers who reviled and mocked her because of her father's experiments!"
Hamminess and Chewing the Scenery seem to be a consistent side effect of the Spark. Othar and Ferretina are just the ones who do it when they aren't going off on a Mad Scientist rant.
The Jagermonsters have tendencies that way as well.
"Ve kin only redeem ourselfs vit honourable death!"
painful, honourable death!"
"Hyu knife, brodder!"
"Right here, brodder!"
"*sigh* Ve didn't gets
caught, hyu eediots."
The as-yet unnamed Doctor Ham who shows up here, escorted by copious lampshading and enough chewed scenery to put the carpenter's kids through college.
Agatha herself knows how to set the right tone when addressing unruly minions.
Dr. Disaster from . He starts hamming it up with Gunnerkrigg Court his very first lines: " Spacemonauts! The Earth is in peril!" It's unclear whether he's like this all the time, or just acting. Ironically, he has a crush on Jones, the resident Stoic.
Parley knows how important it is to put up a good show (later, Mort joins too).
New Misfile: Knight Templar Xaphrael makes his entrance in this strip. "That voice, it's a Large Angelic Ham!" And the Whole Cryptic Conversation that follows it.
Xykon and, to a lesser degree, Lord Shojo, appear to be enjoying themselves a little more than is entirely healthy. Both of them being dead and all.
The main character of . "Who am I? ... I Everyday Heroes ham am MISTER MIGHTY!" Lampshaded here when his wife doesn't join in the hamfest.
Yatta-ta! The greatest swordsman in all Kivallia!. Although he just might be.
Keychain of Creation has Galatea ("CRAZY? YOU DARE?! ALL THE WORLD IS MAD AND ONLY I AM SANE!!") and Riboflavin ("I SAID BOW, YOU HALF-SENTIENT LEMUR!"). Galatea has a big crush on Riboflavin at one point.
The Inexplicable Adventures of Bob! Snowflame retains this in the FanWebcomic of the same name. " " Seven Words:
"I work for no one but Cocaine!"
's Homestuck Vriska, a fact which Karkat lampshades in the flash by effortlessly predicting her next lines without having any AlterniaBound Psychic Powers at all. (Initiate a conversation with Vriska as Karkat to see this).
Of course, Karkat is also prone to overdramatics, especially when angry. See his first conversation with John (from his perspective).
Terezi has a lot of fun Role Playing as a Legislacerator.
John greatly enjoys (over)acting out scenes from his favorite movie, much to Karkat's dismay (spoilers).
Hussie himself. After all, he doesn't just draw Homestuck...
Then there's Latula, an absurdly over-the-top Totally Radical Gamer Girl. In a mild Deconstruction, both Porrim and Karkat think that it's an act.
Jake, despite his love for adventure and his tendency for Antiquated Linguistics, doesn't ham it up all that much until Aranea "heals" his mind so that he reaches his ultimate form, which regularly bellows .
Antiquated Linguistics in large, glowing, flaming letters Villains such as Caliborn and sober!Gamzee have their fair share of ham, too, and often to terrifying degree.
In , Mr. Verres El Goonish Shive gets his moment, even if only for one panel.
is about an 8-year-old boy named Max who is, essentially, the physical embodiment of this trope. ( Max Overacts "Get Me The Louvre! We Must Vitamin-Enrich Their Permanent Collection!")
"I am RICHARD! Chief Warlock of the Brothers of Darkness! Lord of the Thirteen Hells! Master of the Bones! Emperor of the Black! Lord of the Undead! * and mayor of a little village up the coast. It's very scenic during the spring time, you should visit sometime."

Tragic Deaths Car Hayne the hyena from Fur Piled: http://www.liondogworks.com/fur-piled/en/109 Yes, ham can come in the form of comics, too.
Princess Luna of , just like her cartoon counterpart. Doubly so when she puts on her Nightmare Moon costume for Slice of Life Nightmare Night.
Princess Luna: "Why, you miniature RAPSCALLIONS! I shall have to have a word with your parents AT ONCE about this unethical behavior!"
Bud Oven from . Precocious  Large Ham is his normal method of speaking.
Dillon, the title character of , appears to be a competent professional actor in-universe. However, he's prone to Sticky Dilly Buns campness and flamboyant emoting, on and off stage, at least verging on ham.
