* A magic mirror in ''Series/TheTenthKingdom'' speaks entirely in rhyme and will only answer questions that are put in verse as well. This leads to Tony and Virginia having to come up with...interesting questions on the spot.
--> "Our mirror's smashed, what can we do? Where the hell are the other two?"

* This is a trait of Jervis Tetch in ''Series/{{Gotham}}, initially most frequently while [[MindManipulation hypnotising his marks]]. However, after [[spoiler:his sister killed herself to get away from him]], he started undergoing some serious SanitySlippage and the rhyming began to bleed into his normal speech. Jim Gordon was able to exploit this at one point in interrogation by speaking in rhyme to him, tricking him into inadvertently dropping hints about who Jim was looking for:
-->'''Tetch:''' Nothing! Nothing! I'll tell you naught, his name shall be neither spoken nor taught! He'll cut and he'll crush and the blood will run thick, though from [[spoiler:healer]] to killer is no easy trick!

The habit of certain characters to speak in SublimeRhyme,
for no apparent reason, all the [[SelfDemonstratingArticle time]].
This does not apply when the character is [[PropheciesRhymeAllTheTime quoting/reciting]],
nor when they are rapping or their inner poet is deliberately igniting;
only when they are speaking off the top of their head
does this trope apply, that's what I said.
I don't want to be rude,
but must also exclude,
literature written [[GratuitousIambicPentameter entirely in verse]],
like Creator/WilliamShakespeare or Creator/{{Homer}} or worse.

A character [[SubvertedRhymeEveryOccasion need not speak in rhyme]]
''all'' the time,
but it should happen often enough
that [[CharacterTics excusing it is tough]].
Also, poetry or rap can be included,
if all other modes of expression are precluded.

More often than not, I tell you what, a character who RhymesOnADime is a supporting character or hovers in the background, safe and sound. Also they tend to follow the trend of [[TotallyRadical Urban influence, young and unsung]].
