* LenWein had The Demon (ComicBook/{{Etrigan}}) start doing this in ''ComicBook/DCComicsPresents''. Its later use by Alan Moore in ''Comicbook/SwampThing'' made it stick... sometimes with [[PainfulRhyme painful results]] when the author of the day is less than skilled at poetry.
** PeterDavid did actually get him to rhyme orange... with "car hinge", since he was standing on a car door.

Shadowpact has Blue Devil start rhyming when the forces of Hell decide to demote him (which is good because in Hell lower is better), and although Etrigan doesn't always speak in rhyme in the New 52, he does it a lot in battle to use special demon powers.
