Calvin and Hobbes

Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars

Crossover

  • Taniguchi, in Kyon: Big Damn Hero stood up in the middle of lunch and proclaimed across the classroom to his girlfriend that he would get better grades if she would study with him. Then he begins his flowery speech about his quest, much to Haruhi's amusement, and his classmates' shock.

  • Megami no Hanabira: Kaiwan. So very much. The girls encounter a Flock member with a rather flowery style of speaking as well: Nanami outright calls him a ham.
  • Every time Shinji Ikari gets into Ham Mode in Shinji And Warhammer 40 K.
  • The Infinite Loops: Spike of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic spent a Loop as one, on purpose. He even lampshades it when he decides to go this route:
    Spike: "Did somepony order, A LARGE HAM!"
  • In How To Drill Your Way Through Your Problems, Lagann is deliberately invoking Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann tropes to combat the general cynicism and pessimism of Worm. As a result, this happens. A lot.

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

  • Nappa from Dragon Ball Z Abridged": "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!"

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

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

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic

  • 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!"

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann

Touhou

Total Drama

Under Tale

Worm

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!
