Calvin and Hobbes

  • Calvin and Hobbes: The Series:
    • Dr. Brainstorm. Being a stupidly evil mad scientist with No Indoor Voice, is the perfect candidate for this. And boy, is he ever.
    • Calvin himself sometimes counts.
      "REVENGE! RE-VEEEEEEEEEENGE!"
    • Lampshaded in "Roughin' It":
      Hobbes: We're in the clear... supposedly.
      Calvin: Good boy, Shatner.

The DCU

  • Dance with the Demons: Kobra needs to pontificate before, during, and after a battle, despite Batman dismissing his antics.
    Kobra: "I congratulate you on your sterling effort. Truly, your wife would be pleased. However, I have a final trump your side cannot counter: a force-field which I have activated. It encases this entire floor, above it, below it, and on all sides. Your allies cannot penetrate it. Nor can you. But there is a way in."
    Batman: "What is it?"
    Kobra: "We have always known it would come down to this. The final battle, the Ragnarok. If I am your Midgard Serpent, and you are my Thor, then we must fight. However, no one has yet prophecied which of us will be slain, and which be slayer."
  • Hellsister Trilogy: Darkseid is fond of polysyllabic verbiage and has no concept of indoor voice. Nemesis, the Kryptonian/Zeroxian hybrid whom Darkseid has raised, takes after his father and is prone to histrionics and speaking in all caps.
    Darkseid: "I have had three prior sons, boy. Two of my body, one of my charge. But you, my fourth son...you have had advantages your forebears never knew. I left their upbringing to others. I was busy. You, I have tended to with all my attention. With all my knowledge. Do you know why, boy?"
    Nemesis: "Because I am the greatest of the four. Because I am the one who will break our enemies like pottery shards. Because I will avenge you, my father. Avenge you, and...my mother."
    Darkseid: "Just so. Do you... remember who undid my plans, a thousand years ago, boy? And who, not so long ago... undid your mother?"
    Nemesis: (whispering) "The Supergirl."
    Darkseid: "Just so. It will be some years before you are of age, boy. It will be some years before we can reveal ourselves. The United Planets, the Guardians of the Universe, they must be kept... unknowing. Timing is all-important, boy. Any general can tell you that. Timing is everything."
    Nemesis: "Do you really believe she will come back?"
    Darkseid: "She will, boy. They will summon her."
    Nemesis: "That is good, father. Very, very good."
    Darkseid: "Do you know what you shall do, boy? Do you know what you shall do, in that time and on that day?"
    Nemesis: "I will avenge my mother's death. I will avenge your honor. I will make her pay for blocking the True Path. I WILL DESTROY THE SUPERGIRL."
    Darkseid: "And so you shall, my boy. And so, one day, you shall."

  • A Force of Four: Mars is a very pompous and verbose War God who loves histrionics.
    Power Girl: "Aren't you tied to Earth? If you destroy it, how will you survive?"
    Mars: "Mars is not tied to Earth. Mars is tied to war. And what better war than that of vast empires within the second Heaven? Where billions may die, billions more be enslaved, and the bloodflow which results nourishes my power with every drop. No. Earth is unnecessary. A canker in my being. When it is destroyed, only my pain will vanish. But it will not be destroyed yet."
  • Parodied in Shazam fanfiction Here There Be Monsters. The villain known as Acrobat is not good at making overdramatic speeches and he lacks the power to back his threats, so nobody takes him seriously.
    The Acrobat: "I'll kill you. I'm man enough, madman enough, to kill you all! Disc or no disc, I've got the power of ten men when the moon is out, and I ought to have enough strength here to do you all in!"[...] I'll destroy you all! One by one, I'll tear your heads off and make lamps out of them! I'll use your bodies for baseball equipment! I'll–"
    Midnight Maid: "You've been reading too many comic books."

Death Note

Digimon

  • Characters in Peter Chimaeras Digimon Trilogy are guilty of this. Highlights include:
    Digimon after having defeated the Big Bad: "Hooray I saved the wolrd!" he shouted. "THE WORLD IS SAFE"
    Evil Digimon: "H-a-a-a-a-a-a-a! I will kill you Digimon!"
    Digimon after arriving to help a kid trapped under a car: "IT IS NOT A GOOD TIME FOR A CHILDREN TO DIED"
    An FBI staff member: "WHO ARE YOU TO DEMAND TO COME IN"
  • At the end of the second chapter of Radiant Sacrifice, the reformed Demon Lord Beelzemon (now a Royal Knight), reveals himself as a MASSIVE Ham, delivering a deep and booming speech
  • Takato from the Tamers Forever Series seems to have a fondness for melodramatic speeches.
    • Chaos also has his moments.
      ""Join me at the darkness of the eternal abyss! JUDECCA PRISON!"
    • And of course, Daemon takes this Up to Eleven.

Disney Animated Canon

  • In Crowns of the Kingdom, the Disney Villains have this trait, and it's part of why they do what they do.

Dragon Ball

  • Dragon Ball Z Abridged:
    • Nappa:
      "This is gonna be my BEST... DAY... EVER!"
    • Of course, he was accompanied by Vegeta.
      "I AM THE HYPE!!"
    • Then there's Super Kami Guru.
      "NAAAAAAIIIILLL!!! Stop making out with boyfriend. I can hear it from here!"

Godzilla

  • Mugal in the Fan Film Godzilla vs. the Kaiju Killer.
    "I SAID PICK IT UP!"

Harry Potter

  • My Immortal is basically a World of Ham. Examples are
    "WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING YOU MOTHERFUKERS!" It was... Dumbledore!
    "I MAY BE A HOGWARTS STUDENT….” Hargirid paused angrily. “BUT I AM ALSO A SATANIST!"
    "YOU ARE NOT FIT TO BE THE PRINCIPAL ANY LONGER!" yelled Rumbridge. "YOU ARE TOO OLD AND YOUR ALZHEIMERS IS DANGEROUS! YOU MUST RETRY OR VOLDEMORT WILL KILL YOUR STUDENTS!"

How to Train Your Dragon

  • The Home We Built Together: When Hiccup and Astrid trained the arena dragons to pretend to fight them, the Hideous Zippleback takes the Ham Award for Overacting.
    The two-headed dragon was sparring with the twins – it'd seemed to have taken an interest in the Thorstons and always gravitated to "fighting" them. The two heads playfully dodged the swinging weapons, occasionally firing off a small blast for theatrics. The left head didn't dodge fast enough, or maybe it'd let itself be smacked on purpose. As Tuffnut's mace smashed into it, the head flopped to the ground, its tongue sticking out as if it had croaked over dead from that one blow. The right head looked down at its twin then without hesitation flopped onto the floor without so much as a threat, its forked tongue dangling out of its gassy mouth.

The Legend of Korra

  • In the fanfic Book Five: Legends, Fumiko is this in spades. Her big brother Temuji can have a bit of a flair for the dramatic as well, but Fumiko really loves to ham it up, both before and after The Reveal.

The Legend of Zelda

Marvel Universe

  • Devils Diary: Not even while writing his private thoughts Magneto can refrain himself of being overly dramatic. Or writing on all caps.
    I curse myself as a barbarian. I did the right thing, God knows, but I damn myself for the act.
    THERE IS NO ALTERNATIVE (scratch out words).
    I would to G-d sometimes that I had another path to walk.
    Irrelevant. This is my part to play. MUST BE STRONG. Like the iron.
    I bend the iron to my will.
    It is only by strength that I resist the temptation to bend.

Mega Man

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic

  • Dante has many moments of hammyness in Ancient Sins, which range from: dancing while fighting, shouting random thoughts, and making impersonations of the main cast, all of which still make some of the people he fights giggle.
  • Barricade, Fluttershy's mom, from Mothers. It should also be worth noting that, physically, she's nearly twice the size of her daughter.
  • The Pony POV Series has, of course, Discord, as is the canon. It also has his Father, Havoc, which is likely where he got his ham from (he certainly didn't get it from his Mother).
  • The Twilight Child: Princess Luna has more or less gotten the hang of modern Equestrian (except when around Cadence), so her moments of true ham are far and few between. Then she finds her dog Cerberus has gone missing. She rushes back to Canterlot and bursts into the throne room (wearing fuzzy slippers, since it gets chilly near the gates of Tartarus) and declares:
    Princess Luna: "WOE! OH LAMENTATIONS! SISTER, I BRING DIRE NEWS! THE GATES OF TARTARUS STAND UNGUARDED, AND ALL MANNER OF EVIL THREATENS TO LOOSE ITSELF UPON THE WORLD!"
    • Apparently Twilight Sparkle will become a ham if someone so much as mentions the word "seaponies".
  • Vengeance of Dawn: Breaking Dawn just loves to ham it up, even after her Heel–Face Turn.
  • The Witch of the Everfree: Sunset isn't particularly hammy in ordinary conversation, but she hams it up a lot whenever she either wants to intimidate someone or wants to make a Big Entrance.
  • In Chrysalis Visits The Hague, Chrysalis likes to lay it on thick when complaining or raging – her lawyer Estermann suspects that she herself is enjoying the theatrics.

Pokémon

  • Larry Bellowich the Loudred (naturally) of Pokéumans. It only makes sense to make him the tournament announcer, where he literally talks in all caps.
  • From Pokemon Opal And Garnet, we have Clopin, who is just as much of a ham as his namesake. This quote says it all:
    Clopin: It means that WE HAVE BUISNESS! That's right, païkan, BUSINESS IS BOOMING AND WE'RE STARTING TO GET WALKERS! IF ANYONE ELSE IS INTERESTED PLEASE JOIN US IN THE FIGHT FOR CANCER! IT WILL BE TRULY AMAZING! HAVE FUN!
  • Butterfree in Box of Danger's Pokémon The Abridged Series. Also counts as Memetic Badass.

Power Rangers

Pretty Cure

  • Pretty Cure Hollywood Stars has Cure Western. She's particularly hammy in episode 1 when she beats her own high score on the arcade version of the Atari VCS gorefest The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, episode 7 when she yells at Nick that he'll soon be laughing on the other side of his face, episode 9 when she delivers a Sophisticated as Hell theory on how a modern-day Shakespearean play could be possible, and episode 12, where she lets out an Evil Laugh before letting Nick know she sent a homing bullet toward him.

Redwall

RWBY

Sailor Moon

The Simpsons

Sonic the Hedgehog

  • Astorath in Sonic X: Dark Chaos pretty much either yells or dramatically enunciates everything he says. Considering the fact he's an expy of the Heavy from Team Fortress 2, it's not entirely out of place.
    • Maledict loses his cool and goes into full scenery-chewing mode during his climactic duel with Jesus in Episode 75. And that's before the author said that his voice is similar to William Dafoe.
      "I am your god, you half-formed chimp! When you swung from trees, I ruled TIME and SPACE!"
    • Allysion is so hammy she could've starred in every single Cecil B. DeMille biblical epic. Everything she says is either a flowery Bible quote, a dramatic threat, or both.
    • Once Dark Tails resurrects himself, he quickly puts BRIAN BLESSED to shame;
      "YOU SHALL NOT DIE HERE... DEATH IS NO ESCAPE... YOU SHALL BE DEVOURED, ANNIHILATED, DEFILED... YOU SHALL KNOW TERROR WITHOUT END... YOU SHALL BE TORN ASUNDER FROM EVERY ATOM, AND YOURS SHALL BE THE CRIES OF TORMENT AND HORROR!"

Yu-Gi-Oh!

  • Yu-Gi-Oh! The Abridged Series:
    • Yami/Pharaoh certainly qualifies.
      Yami: I can do anything I want, because I'm voiced by DAN GREEN!
    • The Hair Guy, whether shouting about his hair or yelling at the Duelist Kingdom competitors about something else.
      Hair Guy: ATTENTION DUELISTS! My hair has become an internet phenomenon!
    • And then we have Marik.
      Marik: Foolish fools! There are no women in Yu-Gi-Oh! There are only extremely girly men! And I am the most girly of them all!
