* In the StarTrekExpandedUniverse, there's a race called the Lonat who speak in rhyme, and it's ''explicitly'' made TranslationConvention. Skilled poetic speaking akin to Shakespeare's use of iambic pentameter is mutilated into nursery rhyme style verse by the UniversalTranslator doing the best it can to keep up. We don't know what the Lonat trader Square-Deal Djonreel is hearing when the [=DS9=] crew talk to him, but he is pleased when they respond to him in rhyme just for fun. Kira tries to get them to cut it out, but [[GotMeDoingIt accidentally ends her order with a word that rhymes with what O'Brien had just said]].

* In TheWiseMansFear, two of the characters have an entire unscripted rhyming conversation, and in TheNameOfTheWind, Kvothe does a BadassBoast like this. It's actually good poetry. JustifiedTrope, He's a musician. Further justified due to use of the TranslationConvention.

** The faeries in ''HeroesOfMiddlecenter'' (who explode if they fail to rhyme)
** Puck and some of the other lesser Fairies in ''AMidsummerNightsDream'' speak entirely or almost entirely in rhyme, while Titania and Oberon mostly don't bother. This may or may not be intentional.
