** The show's ThemeTune can ''feel'' like a subverted rhyme, depending on where you mentally put the line breaks. If you break after "people of this world," the last line is "believe in Garnet, Amethyst, and Pearl," and the "and Steven!" is Steven tacking himself on where he doesn't belong. But if you break after "believe in," then "Steven" rhymes perfectly. The rhythm of the song allows for either, [[spoiler:while the title sequence visuals imply the first interpretation before the Season Two changes, the second after]].

This is most often used for comedy: typically, the rhyme set up and subverted was clearly supposed to be a profanity. (If the replacement word begins the same way as the averted word, this amounts to a deliberate CurseCutShort.) It's one of the myriad gimmicks used for GettingCrapPastTheRadar, and when used this way is known as a "Miss Susie," after one of the most famous examples. Sometimes in this case the cut-off word will appear in a different context as a MidwordRhyme ("The steamboat went to '''heck'''/-o operator.") Doing this is the only way to get the worse {{Bawdy Song}}s on American network television -- though of course the trope is much older than that: it's used in an Elizabethan broadside ballad about seducing a maiden, thus making it at least OlderThanSteam. That said, the trope can be used for comedy without implying profanity, just by making the way the rhyme is going totally obvious and then not going there.

* Little Texas gets the most brazen award for country songs that subvert a rhyme to "bum" here...not completing the rhyme, in the chorus, and then using said non-completion ''as the title of their song'', in "Kick a Little". (Though you might not know it because [[PainfulRhyme they set it up to rhyme with "last"]].
* Chico Buarque, Brazilian musician, once used this in his song "Cálice". This song was a heavy protest against the military dictatorship that occupied Brazil back then. The subverted rhyme was a way of GettingCrapPastTheRadar, making it a rare non-comedic example. Being such a serious and powerful song, most people appreciate the subtlety. AND it actually rhymes better this way. Yes, Chico is a genius!! It's also unusual in that the substituted part is before the part it is supposed to rhyme (he substituted the word ''puta'', that means ''lady'' or ''lady'', for the word ''outra'', ''other'').

This is most often used for comedy: typically, the rhyme set up and subverted was clearly supposed to be a profanity. (If the replacement word begins the same way as the averted word, this amounts to a deliberate CurseCutShort.) It's one of the myriad gimmicks used for GettingCrapPastTheRadar, and when used this way is known as a "Miss Susie," after one of the most famous examples. Sometimes in this case the cut-off word will appear in a different context as a MidwordRhyme ("The steamboat went to '''Hell'''/-o operator.") Doing this is the only way to get the worse {{Bawdy Song}}s on American network television -- though of course the trope is much older than that: it's used in an Elizabethan broadside ballad about seducing a maiden, thus making it at least OlderThanSteam. That said, the trope can be used for comedy without implying profanity, just by making the way the rhyme is going totally obvious and then not going there.

* Little Texas gets the most brazen award for country songs that subvert a rhyme to "ass" here...not completing the rhyme, in the chorus, and then using said non-completion ''as the title of their song'', in "Kick a Little". (Though you might not know it because [[PainfulRhyme they set it up to rhyme with "last"]].
* Chico Buarque, Brazilian musician, once used this in his song "Cálice". This song was a heavy protest against the military dictatorship that occupied Brazil back then. The subverted rhyme was a way of GettingCrapPastTheRadar, making it a rare non-comedic example. Being such a serious and powerful song, most people appreciate the subtlety. AND it actually rhymes better this way. Yes, Chico is a genius!! It's also unusual in that the substituted part is before the part it is supposed to rhyme (he substituted the word ''puta'', that means ''bitch'' or ''whore'', for the word ''outra'', ''other'').

* At a certain public university in a certain eastern state, the men's glee club there maintained a deep repertoire of old and creatively dirty songs, one of which -- called "High Above a Coopie's Garter" -- employed an unusual version of this trope. The eight-line first verse, which the rhyme scheme clearly indicates should build toward the final word "...ass," instead ends with "...hmmmm." The second verse is then eight lines of humming, until the final word -- "...''ass''."
