Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_3'); })When a work is populated by more than one Large Ham, and at least two get a scene together, it will usually turn into Ham-to-Ham Combat, where they try to out-over dramatic each other. The scene can become either really funny or really corny, or both, and really fast. If it goes too far, it may reach a Hormel Event Horizon.
Note that they do not have to be enemies. It can be the Big Bad and The Dragon trying to out-evil-laugh each other, or a pair of heroes spouting Bond One Liners as they mow down the Mooks. The point is that their screen presences and overacting are competing.
Compare World of Ham. If they're villains trying to creep each other out, that's Eviler Than Thou. Bigot vs. Bigot is when these characters are not only hammy, but extremely opinionated as well. Contrast Snark-to-Snark Combat.

The Dark Knight Saga:
The Dark Knight: Christian Bale vs. Heath Ledger as Batman and the Joker.
Batman Begins makes this a plot point; Ducard teaches Bruce Wayne that theatricality can be a powerful weapon, and Bruce Wayne, the character, starts Chewing the Scenery to intimidate criminals. He ends up facing Dr. Jonathan Crane, who dresses up as Scarecrow and uses similar tactics. The Dark Knight follows the same concept; Bale vs. Ledger is going on, but Batman vs. Joker is ham to ham combat in the story.
And then, in The Dark Knight Rises, there's Batman vs. Bane, whose nature is also rather hammy.

Killzone 3 casts Malcolm McDowell and Ray Winstone as Chairman Stahl and Admiral Orlock, the top rivals for leadership of the Helghast. They chew much scenery during committee meetings, and eventually go to the logical extreme of literal combat while still spitting scenery at each other.

Bleach: Tite Kubo admitted he struggles to write fights in a serious way and can only do it by involving jokes along the way. Many characters therefore ramp up the ham during battles. Only the most important battles lack any humour to showcase just how significant they are. To wit:
Yumichika versus Charlotte kicked off with Yumichika trying to fight with his eyes closed so he wouldn't have to look at Charlotte and them calling each other ugly until they agreed the loser would be the ugly one. It sets up an abrupt Mood Whiplash into a very serious Let's Get Dangerous! reveal of Yumichika's true power.
Ikkaku's fight against Shishigawara is Played for Laughs due to him using it to teach Shishigawara how to fight like a man... by them beating the snot out of each other with their fists. Ikkaku wins the fight with a massive, hammy headbutt — but not before he pops his dislocated shoulder back into place with a muscle flex while screaming "FUCK YEAH", much to Shishi's horror.
Mila Rose and Apacci from Harribel's Amazon Brigade simply can't be in the same scene/panel without punching/kicking/screaming/etc. at each other. In the meantime, Sung-Sun will snark at them from the background.
Being two Large Ham Mad Scientists, Mayuri Kurotsuchi and Szayel Aporo Ganz's match was not just a matter of who was the creepiest, but also of who was the hammiest. And Mayuri wins spectacularly in the end.
Renji Abarai and Buzz-B scream insults at each other until Renji insults Bazz-B's mohican. Bazz-B's so enraged, he reveals he had really liked Renji's tattooed eyebrows. Renji is utterly thrilled, but Bazz-B tells him it's too little, too late. Meanwhile, a disbelieving Rukia snarks their behaviour in the background.
Mayuri's decision to fight Giselle turns into chaos due to Mayuri's decision to bring "allies" that he has secretly implanted with punishment devices to inflict Electric Torture directly inside their brains. He ends up arguing more with them than with Giselle. He revives Cirucci, Dordonni, Luppi and Charlotte For Science! with their personalities intact. Cirucci and Dordonni are obsessed with finding Ichigo and Uryuu, Luppi resents being saddled with them and they all mistrust Mayuri. Meanwhile, Charlotte's busy annoying Yumichika, accusing Giselle of being a Drag Queen and randomly trying to hit Mayuri with Bambietta's body.
As of 630, there's a really GLORIOUS ham duel between Askin and Grimmjow. It starts with the first surviving a massive attack from the latter, then trying to make a run for it when the other's distracted and it goes downhill from there.
After Askin's fight is over, an oversized Gerard Valkyrie take the center spot and engages several captains at once, one of which is Kenpachi, who gladly matches the Schutzstaffel boast for boast.
Almost at the end of the manga, there's a gloriously porky exchange and fight between none other than Yhwach and... Aizen, of all people. It has to be read to be believed.

Alan Rickman versus Ralph Fiennes in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, at the very beginning. Interestingly enough, rather than go the whole nine yards with their roles ("NYEEEEEEEHHHHHHH!" and "POTTER!" respectively), they seemed to be having a contest about who could be the most subdued while still being the most dramatic. At several points, Fiennes even uses dramatic pauses like Rickman is famous for.

In Umineko: When They Cry, Ham To Ham Combat is actual combat! Battler and Beatrice (and more characters later) launch theories and arguments at each other, full with Dramatic Finger Pointing, Laser Blades and red and blue flashes at each sentence. And it only gets hammier with each Episode. Except Episode 7, but that's only because Battler and Beatrice aren't in that one.

The Nightmare Before Christmas: Oogie's Revenge: Several of the boss battles can qualify (and the final battle definitely does).
First take Jack, whose natural hammy theatrics are Turned Up to Eleven when in Musical Assassin mode then pit him in dance fights with huge song and dance sequences — complete with backup dancers (no, really, you can actually sing and dance most the bosses into submission Broadway style) — against the following:
Oogie Boogie, who is voiced by Ken Page, who has voiced some of the hammiest musical characters in in the last 30 years.
Lock, Shock, and Barrel - each one seems to have been personally trained in the ways of ham by Oogie himself.
And Dr. Finkelstein, the local Mad Scientist whose been Brain Swapped and Crazier (nuff said).

Looney Tunes: Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck both would usually attempt to out-ham anyone else on the screen, so when the two of them faced off against each other (as in the "Duck Season/Rabbit Season" cartoons), it was epic.

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann is essentially a continuous series of Ham-to-Ham Combat scenes, with all moments of Kamina and Viral together on screen automatically topping the list.
The final battle was a concrete embodiment of this trope, as made clear with the dubs:
Lagann-Hen turns this Up to Eleven by having an arms race with Team Dai-Gurren trying to out-ham each enemy. Case in point:

Linkara's crossover with Spoony to review Warrior #2 and #3 causes Insano versions of much of the Channel Awesome crew at the time to manifest at the end of the review and start fighting each other whilst taking advantage of the opportunity to gleefully overact. Special mentions go to Dr. InsanJoe, who channels Emperor Palpatine's over the top gesturing, and Dr. Bearsano, who in spite of being a teddy bear riding atop a mind-controlled Benzaie, manages to overact for two without actually speaking.

Can't forget whenever Alex is in the same room as Izumi's husband Sig Curtis. Pec Flex contests inevitably ensue.
Or when Alex and Sig teamed up to take care of Sloth.
In the first episode of Brotherhood, Isaac MacDougal gets a chance to do this with Alex.

Shadow vs Mephiles in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006). Mephiles spends his sweet time chewing the scenery while Shadow tries to shut him up. In Shadow's self-titled game, it's basically him vs. Black Doom vs. Dr. Eggman. Oddly enough, Shadow's fairly low-key in Sonic Adventure 2, his debut game.

Batman Begins makes this a plot point; Ducard teaches Bruce Wayne that theatricality can be a powerful weapon, and Bruce Wayne, the character, starts Chewing the Scenery to intimidate criminals. He ends up facing Dr. Jonathan Crane, who dresses up as Scarecrow and uses similar tactics. The Dark Knight follows the same concept; Bale vs. Ledger is going on, but Batman vs. Joker is ham to ham combat in the story.

In Kickassia, very much a World of Ham, The Nostalgia Critic and The Spoony One have a particularly egregious example of this at the beginning of part 2. It stands out against all of the other extremely hammy cast members, and that says something. The battle between Nostalgia Critic and Dr. Insano is the Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Haminess.

In the film version of Arsenic and Old Lace, director Frank Capra told Cary Grant and Raymond Massey to go wild on camera. The result is Grant playing the dashing yet hapless hero Mortimer to the scenery-chewing maximum, while Raymond Massey plays his psychotic older brother Jonathan in reverent homage to Boris Karloff whom his character is supposed to resemble.

Wicked has a scene set almost immediately after Dorothy leaves munchkinland in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz where Elphaba and Glinda begin bickering and eventually catfight. Now, Glinda is miscast if she's not a Large Ham but the special treat in this scene is the actress playing Elphaba beginning to ham it up as well. It's also the last comic scene in the show too, so the actresses clearly like to have fun with it.

The argument between Severus Snape and Sirius Black in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix escalates quickly into childish name-calling. Considering both characters are scene-stealing and bombastic on their own, the fact that they have a scene together at all should make the wizarding world explode. Just imagine if the scene had been in the movie.

Mazinger Z:
In the Dynamic Heroes e-manga (a Crossover featuring the main Go Nagai series), Kouji Kabuto fought Great Marshall Of Hell as riding Mazinger. The two of them have very hammish tendences. It is noteworthy as it was, maybe, the first time in the history of the franchise Kouji and Dr. Hell faced each other directly as both were riding giant robots. Too bad it was a Curb-Stomp Battle.
And in Great Mazinger the legendary duel between Tetsuya and Great General of Darkness. They were trying not only to kill each other but also out-ham each other.
And in UFO Robo Grendizer the final battle between Duke and Emperor Vega.

Metal Gear lives on this trope. Rather try to find any characters that are completely unhammy.
Metal Gear Solid: Ocelot, Grey Fox, Vulcan Raven, Psycho Mantis, Sniper Wolf, LIQUID!
Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty: OCELOT!, Vamp, Fortune, Fat Man, Solidus.
Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater: Ocelot, Boss, Volgin, THE PAIN!, the Fear, the Fury.
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots: Snake, Ocelot, Raiden, Vamp, Laughing Octopus, Raging Raven, Screaming Mantis.
The End, the Sorrow, and Crying Wolf are probably the only villains in the entire series who are not Large Hams, but mostly only because they can't draw the breath to yell all the time.

Dragon Ball Z Abridged:
The latest thus far is Goku vs Frieza. The latter loses his cool the more Goku demonstrates his stupidity by being oblivious of Frieza's insults and making random shouts at each other. Frieza finally snaps and goes all Large Ham and so does Goku upon becoming Super Saiyan.
Recoome spends his sweet time boasting and yelling in his fight with Vegeta, who in turn tried to shut him up, right after they had a theme song introduction.
Ginyu vs Goku. Impressive considering the fight was only seen for a few seconds. Ginyu compliments Goku's skill in battle whereas Goku comments on his skin color (purple).

The Silver Shroud questline in Fallout 4 allows the otherwise stoic Sole Survivor to pretend to be Radio Drama crimefighter the Silver Shroud and ham it up as a golden age Anti-Hero. But it's only in the Automatron DLC, where the Mechanist, who has also taken up the identity of a comic book character, will acknowledge the Sole Survivor as the Silver Shroud, allowing the two to engage in gloriously hammy exchanges.

Then there was the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode "Rules of Engagement". In the red corner: Avery Brooks as Ben Sisko, one of the few Starfleet captains who could give Kirk a run for his money. In the blue corner, Ron Canada as targ-acting Klingon Amoral Attorney Ch'pok. Given that the judge was a Vulcan, and thus unlikely to be swayed by mere volume, presumably they were trying to intimidate each other.

Halo:
Halo 3:
At the end of the level "The Covenant", the Arbiter, Gravemind, and the Prophet of Truth all have a scene together. Truth's participation ends with:
Right afterwards, Gravemind chimes in with an evil laugh and a rhyming verse describing how he's now unstoppable.
The levels in Halo 2 when you fight the Elite heretics as the Arbiter, alongside your own Elite allies. The Elites being a race of Large Hams, this trope crops up frequently.

Star Trek:
In just about every episode of Star Trek: The Original Series, William Shatner brings enough ham to the table to feed a small nation. But in "The Doomsday Machine", he meets his match in Captain Matt Decker. Shatner wisely chose not to engage Ham-to-Ham with William Windom. His performance is for the most part very subdued, making Decker look even more deranged.
The TOS episode "Whom Gods Destroy" featured a veritable clash of the titans between Shatner and Steve Ihnat. When Inhat's character disguises himself as Kirk (and is thus played by Shatner) it's a miracle that the universe didn't collapse in on itself.
About Shatner: look at most of the big-name guest appearances on most of his shows. Basically, Shatner is the Iron Ham, and any show he's on automatically becomes Ham Arena. Presumably, it's every actor's dream to go Ham-to-Ham vs. Shatner.
Then there was the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode "Rules of Engagement". In the red corner: Avery Brooks as Ben Sisko, one of the few Starfleet captains who could give Kirk a run for his money. In the blue corner, Ron Canada as targ-acting Klingon Amoral Attorney Ch'pok. Given that the judge was a Vulcan, and thus unlikely to be swayed by mere volume, presumably they were trying to intimidate each other.
As if that wasn't ham-tastic enough, "Waltz" provides Sisko's next major competitor: former Cardassian ruler (i.e., Dominion pawn) Gul Dukat, driven insane by the loss of both his conquest of the Alpha Quadrant and his daughter, Ziyal. And just to make it an even bigger ham sandwich, hallucinations of Kira, Weyoun, and Damar take turns screwing with what's left of his mind. If they hadn't been able to escape the uninhabited planet they were stranded on, they could've feasted on their own ham for the rest of their lives.

In a recorded production of Jekyll & Hyde starring David Hasselhoff as the eponymous character(s), he's at his highest level of ham in the climactic song "Confrontation". Why is that an example of this trope? Because Jekyll and Hyde both sing that song. That's right, The Hoff can have Ham-to-Ham Combat with HIMSELF.

Despite the potential in having very hammy villains in the Reapers, the Mass Effect series essentially averts this until Mass Effect 3 and an encounter during the Citadel DLC. Shepard finds Traynor playing Kepesh-Yakshi (nor, as Shepard calls it, "space chess") and they meet Polgara T'Suzsa, an asari player who Traynor has a rivalry with. Traynor and T'Suzsa have a grudge match, and soon the pork starts to flow, complete dramatic closeups.

Whenever occasional guest star Will Arnett's character gets into it with Jack Donaghy. Lampshaded by Liz Lemon when she affects a deep, gravelly, "intimidating" voice and asks if they're going to have a "talking-like-this contest".
One episode has Jack encounter an Identical Stranger, meaning Alec Baldwin tries to out-ham himself.

Ham-to-Ham Combat was really the basis of Hawkeye and Trapper's (later B.J.) whole relationship in M*A*S*H. This was as much their characters desperately trying to deflect the horror around them with silly puns, as it was Alda, Rogers, and Farrel having altogether too much fun working together.

That Guy with the Glasses: Apparently it's some kind of employment requirement for Channel Awesome to be able to ham it up when necessary. And sometimes when it's not, too.
In Kickassia, very much a World of Ham, The Nostalgia Critic and The Spoony One have a particularly egregious example of this at the beginning of part 2. It stands out against all of the other extremely hammy cast members, and that says something. The battle between Nostalgia Critic and Dr. Insano is the Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Haminess.
Played With in The Nostalgia Critic's review of Dungeons & Dragons, when he ordained a contest between Profion's hammy overacting and the Empress' quiet underacting. Ultimately he decided they both sucked equally.
And again in The Langoliers, when the very hammy villain gets into an argument with a hallucination of his equally hammy father; the Critic decided to give them points based on how far their mouths opened while screaming.
The ham continues and escalates in To Boldly Flee as we get scenes with General Zod (played by Doug Walker) Mechakara (played by Lewis Lovhaug) and Terl (played by Noah Antwiler). It is pure, unfiltered pork.
Lindsay, Elisa and Nella go all out with each other in the Dark Nella Saga. Nella just about wins through Evil Is Hammy, but the other women put up a surprisingly good fight.
Linkara's crossover with Spoony to review Warrior #2 and #3 causes Insano versions of much of the Channel Awesome crew at the time to manifest at the end of the review and start fighting each other whilst taking advantage of the opportunity to gleefully overact. Special mentions go to Dr. InsanJoe, who channels Emperor Palpatine's over the top gesturing, and Dr. Bearsano, who in spite of being a teddy bear riding atop a mind-controlled Benzaie, manages to overact for two without actually speaking.

Really, any "good" match. Professional Wrestling is built on a solid foundation of PURE HAM. Promo confrontations between feuding wrestlers literally are an undiluted form of this trope. And in the setups to multi-man matches like the Elimination Chamber or Money In The Bank, you'll inevitably get a scene where every participant in the match comes out to cut a promo at the same time.

Star Trek II. William Shatner on one starship, Ricardo Montalban on the other, spending the entire film blasting the crap out of each other while shaking the galaxy with their thunderous overacting. Via video link — they never share a room with each other. Scream it with me now: KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAN! Shatner and Montalban never even met on set; they filmed their roles months apart and were hamming it up with (mostly) the script girl who was reading their counterpart's lines.

In just about every episode of Star Trek: The Original Series, William Shatner brings enough ham to the table to feed a small nation. But in "The Doomsday Machine", he meets his match in Captain Matt Decker. Shatner wisely chose not to engage Ham-to-Ham with William Windom. His performance is for the most part very subdued, making Decker look even more deranged.

Command & Conquer:
It's been that way since the beginning, but Red Alert 3 goes all out for the World of Ham.
Tiberium Twilight gives it a good showing between Joseph Kucan and Iona Morris.
Tiberian Dawn averts this for the vast majority of the game... but not through a lack of ham from the actors (most of the recurring ones ham up at one point or another). There just aren't all that many scenes with more than one actor.

Dante vs. Agnus before their fight in Devil May Cry 4, a bizarre in-universe example. For starters, the fight happened in a trashed opera house, so we have Agnus opening with poetic dialogue and Dante following suit, complete with stage lights (whoever mans them probably does so out of fear of evisceration) as well as stage props like benches and confetti. It really has to be seen.

Planescape: Torment has one where Ravel (Crazy Ham) meets The Transcendent One (Evil Sounds Deep). Or the ending sequences of PS:T in the Fortress of Regrets for that matter. You don't even need the sound. The writing at that point is sufficiently epic to convey the "hamminess" all by itself.

Final Fantasy:
Dissidia: Final Fantasy: Pretty much any voice-acted scene where the villains are talking to each other counts. Doubly so if Kefka or Exdeath is involved.
Since voice-acting was introduced, the games seem to do this rather regularly. Special mention has to be given to Tidus and Yuna's Stylistic Suck laughing scene in Final Fantasy X, although Wakka and Rikku came close to out-doing them with their regular sentence-ending occurrences of "yah?" and "y'know?"

Pretty much every card game in the Yu-Gi-Oh! series, especially in the 4Kids dub, where all the ham levels are cranked up to eleven.
Just one example would be Marik vs. Yami Bakura in Battle City in the 4Kids dub. The two feel the need to remind the other every ten seconds that Once they lose this duel they'll be BANISHED TO THE SHADOW REALM! MWA-HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Even after losing and while being absorbed by the shadows, Yami Bakura doesn't think of dialing down the ham exclaiming: "Don't you realise, that I am the darkness? [...] It's simple, it means I can't be destroyed. You haven't seen the last of me! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!"

Invader Zim: Anybody going against Zim will inevitably be involved in one of these, although Tak is probably one of the best examples.

The Princess Bride:
Very interestingly averted: when Cary Elwes and Chris Sarandon finally meet, it looks like they're about to engage in ham-to-ham combat, but Elwes' character instead instantly defeats the prince with his classic To the Pain speech.
The "Battle Of Wits" between Cary Elwes and Wallace Shawn, however, definitely qualifies. Which is rather a bit of a subversion as well, because Cary Elwes subdues his part quite a bit while Wallace Shawn, well...

Pirates of the Caribbean:
In the first movie where Barbossa and Jack Sparrow face off with each other, and really, whenever they share a scene at any time in the film trilogy.
By the third movie, pretty much everyone is trying to out-ham the other, including Hans Zimmer, the sound-track composer.
Which makes perfect sense that the next film's focus is around Jack and Barbossa. Because like the first film proved, how can one not have fun watching Johnny Depp and Geoffrey Rush, two of the finest actors alive, having a ham contest in pirate garb and dialogue?
Then after that, another ham steps in:

Warhammer 40,000 games:
Dawn of War: Dark Crusade. Any stronghold mission featuring two of the following: Space Marines, Orks, Chaos, Imperial Guard, and Eldar (exception: if Eldar are on defense). Two grimdark hams will duke it out along with their armies.
Especially apparent in the Disorder campaign of Winter Assault. Watching the Ork Warboss and Chaos Champion talk to each other is...impressive. [1]. This is, of course, completely and lovingly appropriate for the setting.
In Dawn of War II every single unit (except the Tyranids, for obvious reasons) has the habit of making brilliantly (yet, in many cases, appropriately) hammy remarks both while fighting and not. In the first case, this leads to a ham-to-ham combat during an actual one - that is, if you can hear it over the ludicrous amounts of dakka. For some of the narmiest, try ordering your units to take cover in bushes.
Taken Up to Eleven in Soulstorm, which adds the Sisters of Battle and Dark Eldar, who somehow manage to be even hammier than their Space Marine/Craftworld Eldar counterparts.

Which makes perfect sense that the next film's focus is around Jack and Barbossa. Because like the first film proved, how can one not have fun watching Johnny Depp and Geoffrey Rush, two of the finest actors alive, having a ham contest in pirate garb and dialogue?

Drowtales, due to being set in a World of Ham.
Just about anytime a fight gets serious you can expect this. Quain'tana, Zala'ess (even more so when they're in the same scene) and pretty much all of the Knight Templar Kyorl'solenurn clan seem to have a steady diet of the comic's scenery.
The hammiest moment, bar none, is during Sil'lice's flashback where she battles the equally hamtacular Kalki, and Sil'lice's ham-a-thon when she returns to the Sharen fortress afterwards. They literally start knocking down the scenery.
Sil'lice herself is no slouch as seen when she fights Yaeminira/Vy'chriel. It starts with Vy'chriel knocking down the door of the Sarghress fortress with a Humongous Mecha and Vy'chriel shouting a challenge and ends with Sil'lice repeatedly slamming her sword into Vy'chriel's forehead while naming the virtues the Sharen who betrayed them have lost, all while freezing Vy'chriel solid.
Kalki seems to be involved in a lot of these, including one with Kiel that even resembles the trope image.

After Jack Nicholson had Batman (1989) all for himself, the three other movies had a Villain Team-Up that served as an excuse for the bad guys trying to overact each other. Then again, it is Got Ham City.
Danny De Vito (The Penguin) and Michelle Pfeifer (Catwoman) in Batman Returns. Even canaries are (nearly) chewed along with the scenery.
Batman Forever buries the needle on the Ham-o-meter when Tommy Lee Jones (Two-Face) and Jim Carrey (The Riddler), team up in the middle of the movie. Observe.
Arnold Schwarzenegger (Mr. Freeze) and Uma Thurman (Poison Ivy) in Batman & Robin. Helps both are pungeon Masters.

Team Fortress 2:
A better selection of fine military-grade ham you are not likely to find. While the Heavy ("YAAAAAAARGH!" CRY SOME MORE!"), the Soldier ("This is MY WORLD! YOU are not WELCOME in MY WORLD!") and the Demoman ("I'm gonna stick me ''thumbs'' in yer ''eyes'' and hang on 'til ye'r ''dead!''") are the obvious choices, we also have the Scout ("BONK!" "LOOK AT ME!" "I am a frickin' ''blur'', here!"), the Medic ("Would you like a second opinion? You are also ugly!" "Oops! That was not medicine!" "A-ha-ha! Oktoberfest!"), and the Sniper ("Thanks fer standin' still, wanker!" "Wave goodbye to yer head, wanker!" "Standin' around like a bloody idiot!"). Even the Pyro has hammy-sounding muffled grunts and a truly porcine interpretation of a Tusken Raider. The least hammy are the Engineer and the Spy, but even those two can have their moments.
Even the Spy hams it up sometimes, especially after dominating an opponent, or getting hit by Jarate.
Those two don't need ham. A short "Oh dear, I made quite a mess" is more effective than anything else in the game. Especially if you just got stabbed...
The Engineer's Evil Laugh does wonders whenever he breaks it out, and additionally his subdued "I told you don't touch that darn thing" still manages to be hammy.
Taken to its logical conclusion with the Ham Shank, which allows every class except the Spy and Engineer (fittingly enough) to go around beating people to death with ham.

Doctor Who is practically a Ham-to-Ham Warzone.
Even the cast and crew weren't averse to a bit of it among themselves. Roy Skelton, one of the Dalek voice actors during the classic series, says he and his colleagues would often compete with each other on set, to see who could be the most evil-sounding Dalek.
Averted, surprisingly, in "The Underwater Menace". The normally quite over-the-top Patrick Troughton prepares to go up against the incarnation of Evil Is Hammy in the form of Professor "Noffink in zuh VORLD can SHTOP ME NOOOW!!" Zaroff... and scales his performance right down so he manages to upstage Zaroff by using his own ham against him. This is something his Doctor tended to do a lot — only ramping up the drama against a hammy villain if it was as part of a bluff, or when he's completely losing his cool at the end of "The War Games".
Showdowns between the Doctor and The Master. Any of them.
The entire Jon Pertwee era is just one huge Ham-to-Ham Combat zone. If it isn't Pertwee and Roger Delgado, it is Pertwee and Nicholas Courtney.
Any time there's a multi-Doctor story:
"The Three Doctors" between William Hartnell (First Doctor), Patrick Troughton (Second Doctor), and Jon Pertwee (Third Doctor). However they are all restrained thespians compared to OOOOOOOOMEGAAAAAAA!!
"The Five Doctors", between Richard Hurndall replacing Hartnell, Troughton, and Pertwee, with Peter Davison's Fifth Doctor positively restrained in comparison. Extra ham from Anthony Ainley as The Master and Richard Mathews as Rassilon.
"The Two Doctors", with Troughton and Colin Baker's Sixth Doctor.
"Time Crash": 7 minutes of non-stop hamming from David Tennant (Tenth Doctor) and Peter Davison.
Even "The Next Doctor", while not a true multi-Doctor story, has David Morrissey out-hamming Tennant.
"The Day of the Doctor" has Tennant's Ten, Matt Smith's Eleven, and John Hurt's Eight-and-a-Half hamming it up together. And then Tom Baker shows up and blows Matt Smith off the screen in a performance that is even relatively restrained by his standards.
"Twice Upon a Time" features Peter Capaldi as Twelve hamming it up with David Bradley as One, replacing Hurndall and Hartnell.
This happens any time one of the Doctors confronts Davros.
Tom Baker is clearly having an excellent time going up against the outrageous Pirate Captain in "The Pirate Planet" in the scene that calls for him to dispense with the cutesy Obfuscating Stupidity and launch into an Unstoppable Rage.
In "The Horns of Nimon", Lalla Ward almost manages to out-ham Tom Baker himself. He resists the onslaught, but then, unbelievably, they are both beaten — completely and utterly beaten — by Graham Crowden as Soldeed. His famous DREEEeeeAAAAaaAaAAAAms of CONquest are only the icing on the cake. He overacts so outrageously that he manages to corpse during his own death scene and it was still put in because it wasn't breaking character.
"The King's Demons", for the master class in ham from Gerald Flood's King John and Anthony Ainley's Master. Gerald Flood's performance is utterly magnificent. It's been a while since they boilllled someone in oilll.
"The Mark of the Rani" has a three-way ham-fest among Colin Baker's Doctor, Anthony Ainley's Master and Kate O'Mara's Rani, and it is glorious.
Colin Baker again in "Timelash" where he squares off against Paul "Avon" Darrow. As has been said elsewhere, the resulting combat has to be seen to be disbelieved.
There's a truly spectacular ham-off between Colin Baker and BRIAN BLESSED in "Mindwarp". No wonder Peri (Nicola Bryant) left the show after this; it would be physically impossible to be exposed to such overwhelming hammy glory for more than five minutes without ending up either dead or pregnant.
"Ghost Light" is famous for two things: its Neon Genesis Evangelion level of incomprehensibility, and the sheer level of glorious over-acting by every. single. cast. member. Even the extras. Somehow, though, it manages to be utterly awesome and a firm fan-favorite.
In "The Christmas Invasion", the Tenth Doctor argues with the Sycorax leader. While still in his jimjams and dressing gown.
In "Doomsday", the Cybermen and the Daleks meet for the first time... and promptly proceed to bitch at each other for a good five minutes. It's hilarious. (Not in the least because they're all voiced by magnificent ham Nicholas Briggs.)
Whenever the Tenth Doctor and Donna get into a ham-off, it's epic. And Catherine Tate's very first appearance as Donna Noble had her up against the Racnoss Empress, truly one of the largest hams the series has ever seen. Tate as Donna Noble also has another special distinction: In "Partners in Crime", thanks to a sheet of soundproof glass, she and David Tennant had what might be one of the first silent examples of Ham-to-Ham Combat.
Let's not forget Donna's epictacular send off — the FOUR-WAY Kombat between the Doctor, the Doctor-Donna, the Donna-Doctor and Davros in "Journey's End". It is GLORIOUS.
The mexi-ham standoff between the Doctor, the Master, and Timothy Dalton from "The End of Time".
River Song is an incredible ham when she's very young, and Alex Kingston has a lot of fun overacting when her character gets to meet the Doctor for the first time (from her perspective). Eleven decides to accessorize with an impeccable top hat and tails tuxedo for the occasion while wildly gesticulating with a cane. It's absolutely incredible.
Every time Strax shows up. He will find an excuse to pick a fight with anything that moves and promptly obliterate it with anything from laser monkeys to acid traps, and grenades. ESPECIALLY grenades.
"The Crimson Horror". In one corner, Matt Smith as the Doctor. In the other, Dame Diana Rigg as the Axe-Crazy old crone Mrs. Gillyflower. The winner: Everybody.
"Nightmare in Silver" has Matt Smith's Eleventh Doctor compete against an even hammier Matt Smith as the Cyber Controller, and it is glorious.
"The Time of the Doctor": Matt Smith hams it up against every Dalek attacking Trenzalore.
"The Husbands of River Song": River Song, the 12th Doctor, and a constantly-shouting Hydroflax (even when he's just a head in a sack). Gloriously over the top. Special note of the Doctor's Bigger on the Inside speech when River doesn't know yet who he is and they enter the TARDIS, and he describes how he thinks such a speech really should go.

This is invoked when Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser, in Fritz Leiber's "Swords in the Mist", where the two heroes meet unexpectedly as the champions of opposite sides in an arranged combat. They use traded insults and challenges to covertly establish the rules of what becomes, unbeknownst to their respective employers, a staged combat instead of a battle royal.

Just one example would be Marik vs. Yami Bakura in Battle City in the 4Kids dub. The two feel the need to remind the other every ten seconds that Once they lose this duel they'll be BANISHED TO THE SHADOW REALM! MWA-HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Even after losing and while being absorbed by the shadows, Yami Bakura doesn't think of dialing down the ham exclaiming: "Don't you realise, that I am the darkness? [...] It's simple, it means I can't be destroyed. You haven't seen the last of me! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!"

Kill la Kill set a new standard for World of Ham in anime, so it's expected that they'll have some of this:

Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern have a brief scene to this effect in Home Alone 2 when their characters try to trick Macauley Culkin into thinking they've been hit by paint cans.

The ham continues and escalates in To Boldly Flee as we get scenes with General Zod (played by Doug Walker) Mechakara (played by Lewis Lovhaug) and Terl (played by Noah Antwiler). It is pure, unfiltered pork.

The Angel Beats! OVA takes this Up to Eleven. As part of a plan to trick Angel, Yuri pretty much orders an Apocalypse of Ham where everyone tries to out-ham each other with the Tension Meter. If the plan fails, everyone fasts (including no water) for a week. Shiina of all people wins, bringing the Tension Meter up to 9999 just by saying "CUTE!!!" The plan still fails, though. Good thing Death Is Cheap!

This is part of why the rivalry between The Rock and "Stone Cold" Steve Austin was so fun to watch (the other was that the men were good friends in real life and relished the opportunity to give the other a good-natured ribbing).
Just about any time The Rock and Mick Foley were together could be described as this. Whether they were feuding, or teaming up as 'The Rock N Sock Connection', they always seemed to be trying to outdo one another in hamminess.
Another example is DeGeneration X. Shawn Michaels thought Triple H was funny as hell behind the scenes, Triple H started trying to crack Shawn up on television, and it just evolved into Ham To Ham Combat meets No Fourth Wall.

The main characters in How I Met Your Mother absolutely love, love, LOVE doing this, usually over very bizarre, trivial, or theoretical disputes, and usually while sitting in their booth in McLaren's. So commonplace is it to see them over-dramatically (and often over-eloquently) yelling and cussing at each other in the middle of the crowded bar over, say, what the most common food in America is, that Fridge Logic forces the conclusion that their Ham To Ham Combat must be a well-known, taken-for-granted fixture of the bar, or else it would draw dozens of gawking spectators or scare customers away.

The Gentlemen's dispute series of videos between Captain Sparklez and Markiplier. The whole thing's so hammy you could feed a third world country with the amount of ham it creates. See here for yourself. And that's just the first video.
The follow up video might be even hammier than the first one as it involves a prolonged scene of acting at the beginning of it.

Frasier:
The rivalry between Frasier and Cam Winston was truly a joy to behold.
Whenever Frasier and Niles got worked up with each other was the cue for an impromptu ham-off, due in equal parts to their natural pompous demeanors, their high education levels and established familiarity with theater, opera, and musicals, and their Sibling Rivalry urging them to show off by trying to outdo each other in the dramatically complex insults and long, hard-to-pronounce words departments. Also, Kelsey Grammer and David Hyde Pierce having too much fun for their own good.

Kingdom Hearts has a cast of Large Ham villains from the Disney Animated Canon... and Xehanort's incarnations. In every game he is in, Xehanort's incarnation wins the battles handedly. There's a reason his Terra-Xehanort's form Heartless is the picture for the Large Ham for Video Games page.

Babylon 5:
Londo and G'Kar, pretty much every time they met in the first couple of seasons led to a spectacular argument with actors Peter Jurasik and Andreas Katsulas trying to out-ham each other.
Ham is part of the job description for any Centauri ambassador.
The climax of "Moments of Transition" turns into three-way Ham To Ham Combat between Delenn, Neroon, and Shakiri. The part where Neroon makes his Heroic Sacrifice elevates the whole thing to Narm levels.

Mary of Scotland: In the 1936 Katharine Hepburn and Fredric March film, the entire cast seems to be engaged in ham-to-ham combat, with the possible exception of John Carradine, who during filming once said to "Katherine of Arrogance," who had expressed a desire to play both Mary, Queen of Scots and Queen Elizabeth I, "If you did that, how would you know which queen to upstage?" If John Carradine is the least hammy member of your cast, something has Gone Horribly Wrong. Or maybe right.

Transformers:
Optimus and Megatron are the masters of this trope, pretty much in every continuity (and they usually play it up during actual combat). Megatron and Starscream have their moments, too.
Unicron, Primus, and the Original 13 (7?), too, ham it up every time they activate their vocal processors, and go into overdrive when running combat subroutines.
Near the end of the Rebirth story arc, which serves as the conclusion to the original G1 cartoon, Spike Witwicky!Fortress Maximus and the evil Nebulan Lord Zarak!Scorponok have such an epic confrontation. In particular, Spike not only out-fights Lord Zarak, he arguably also manages to out-ham him. It has to be heard to be believed.
In Beast Wars Megatron and Tarantulas have formulated an Evil Plan. They begin to laugh in celebration. This becomes an Overly Long Gag as they try to have the last laugh.
Just about every fight between Autobots and Decepticons are this.

Death Becomes Her is all about Goldie Hawn, Meryl Streep, and Bruce Willis indulging in Ham and Cheese - and the latter two also each have a scene with Isabella Rossellini, who might be even the worst of them all. The "combat" part is specially prevalent as a just-dead Hawn indulges in a shovel fight with Streep, both shouting insults at the top of their lungs.
