Not worth putting in the article ("This Troper" or whatever), but regarding the Peter and the Starcatcher example:

Smee: He's chewing up the scenery! Black Stache: NOT IN MY SCENE HE'S NOT!

I saw a production where Stache said, "Not in my show, he's not!" It was apparently not rehearsed that way and that was the first (maybe only) night he said it that way, but I almost felt it was funner that way. Then again, I was the only one really laughing at that line... TV Tropes Will Ruin Your Life

There should be a trope for when somebody feeds stuff to a monster and the monster eventually gets too strong to control, like Aubrey 2 in Little Shop of Horrors, or the Dog Robot from the last episode of Fooly Cooly.

Can someone please explain the link to a Persona 4 The Animation at the end of the article text?

Would this fit the trope?

Newbie here, sorry if this is the wrong place to post it

Hey, what's the difference between this and Large Ham?

Well, Large Ham is a subtrope of this. Chewing The Scenery includes all instances of over-the-top acting, such as Big No and This is SPARTA. However, Large Ham simply describes a character or actor who overdoes it ALL the time.

The picture shows Doc Brown, but it it links to (and is referenced as) The Incredible Hulk.

That's not Doc Brown. That's Banner's father, played by Nick Nolte in the 2003 Hulk movie, and it's referenced in the description.

I think the previous caption ("So, Nick Nolte, how does it taste?") was much funnier. Reversion, anyone?

Or, you know, words to that effect.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.
