* When Sophia the Goddess is freed from her imprisonment in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' one of her followers recites a prophecy for her return.
-->'''Demiurge''': With scales in hand, the Goddess shall arise\\
and righteously cast off her cursed pall.\\
That she with wrathful wyrmking at her side\\
might judge then bring balance unto all.
* Not all of what's written in the Book of Prophecies in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsX'' rhyme, but the prophecy foretelling the end of the world does.
--> "On that fated land, a great war shall transpire.\\
Darkness will prevail and the light expire."

* ''Anime/YuGiOh'' is an {{egregious}} user of this trope; all of the prophecies rhyme, even if they're translated from ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs. ''[[WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries Yu-Gi-Oh!]] [[TheMovie The Abridged Movie]]'' [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] this with Yugi actually asking if the prophecy was written by Dr. Seuss.

* ''Literature/HarryPotter''[='=]s Prophecy famously averts this trope, which Hermione finds surprisingly underwhelming in ''Fanfic/TheParselmouthOfGryffindor''. Leading to this bit of dialogue:
-->'''Hermione:''' "Blah. That doesn't evenr rhyme."
-->'''Dumbledore:''' "''Miss Granger!''"
-->'''Hermione:''' "Sorry. Sorry. That was uncalled for."

* Every prophecy in ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'' and the sequel series, ''Literature/TheHeroesOfOlympus'', rhymes, except for one conspicuous aversion in ''The Son of Neptune, which is, naturally, lampshaded''. As it turns out, with [[MoreDakka enough dakka]], one can ignore all the traditions one wants.

* Literary: Averted in the ''[=DragonCrown=]'' War series by MichaelStackpole. In the first, a prophecy is made in Elven, then translated into English. It doesn't rhyme in the slightest, in either language, nor was it expected to.

* ''Anime/{{Pokemon 2000}}'': "Disturb not the harmony of fire, ice, or lightning, lest these titans wreak destruction upon the world in which they '''clash'''. Though the water's great guardian shall arise to quell the fighting, alone his song will fail; thus the Earth shall turn to '''ash'''." Et cetera.
