Riddle me this,
riddle me that..
Do I have a hat?

My name is enygma
my heart is my brain.
But what’s my domain?

I’ll give you a joker
to finish the game,
me and my questions are not the same.

Now for my last question.
Oh, what a twiddle!
and then you’ll have to answer Minotaur’s riddle.

What is the nickname
of my toughest foe?
(Don’t forget the joker, tho!)

Let's play. I'm looking for 4 answers ( the 3 questions stated in the riddle + who is the riddler?)

    $\begingroup$ All I know is that the entire thing has The Riddler all over them. (Edward Nygma) but I'm not sure what it is we are supposed to find... $\endgroup$ – Spacemonkey May 6 '15 at 20:49
  • $\begingroup$ there are 3 questions in the riddle, this is obvious, since they are unambiguous marked with question mark. You are supposed to find the answer of these 3 questions + the identity of the person who is making the riddle (and that's not me, that's why it is meta-riddling). $\endgroup$ – zlobi.wan.kenobi May 7 '15 at 6:46

You are:

Edward Nygma (The Riddle (Enygma), from Batman)

Riddle me this, riddle me that.. Do I have a hat?

Yes, it is a green bowler hat.

My name is enygma my heart is my brain. But what’s my domain?

Gotham City (DC Comics)

I’ll give you a joker to finish the game, me and my questions are not the same.

Is this a question? I don't think so.

Now for my last question. Oh, what a twiddle! and then you’ll have to answer Minotaur’s riddle.

Minotaur: I have millions of eyes, yet I live in darkness. I have millions of ears, yet only four lobes. I have no muscles, yet
I rule two hemispheres. What am I?
Batman: That's simple: the human brain.
Batman: It has millions of visual and auditory nerves, four lobes, two hemispheres, and it's the only thing Edward Nygma
respects.

What is the nickname of my toughest foe? (Don’t forget the joker, tho!)

"Batsy" - Joker's favourite nickname of Batman

    $\begingroup$ You can add 2 spaces at the end of the line. It does the same thing as a BR tag $\endgroup$ – A.D. May 6 '15 at 16:00
  • $\begingroup$ @Daedric np, I never knew it either until someone edited one of my posts ;) $\endgroup$ – Mark N May 6 '15 at 16:17

    $\begingroup$ Could it be a common nickname for one's toughest foe, like rival? $\endgroup$ – Alex May 6 '15 at 20:23

    $\begingroup$ Maybe Nemesis? or arch-rival $\endgroup$ – Brian Robbins May 6 '15 at 21:56

Possibly over-doing the meta layer, and ignoring the obvious batman-related answer, the one posing the riddle is:

The Minotaur

Riddle me this,/ riddle me that../ Do I have a hat?

Nope. Horns, though

My name is enygma/ my heart is my brain./ But what’s my domain?

The Labyrinth (on Crete, I think?). Though this clue kinda makes me think of The Wizard of Oz

I’ll give you a joker/ to finish the game,/ me and my questions are not the same.

This is what makes me think it's not Batman related, which means we need another famous riddler

Now for my last question./ Oh, what a twiddle!/ and then you’ll have to answer Minotaur’s riddle.

Seems overly straightforward, but if this is 'Minotaur's riddle', then are you not the minotaur?

What is the nickname/ of my toughest foe?/ (Don’t forget the joker, tho!)

That'd be Theseus, then. Can't think of any nicknames off-hand

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ It smells like Batman. I shouldn't have put so much clues there. The last line does not match with the joker-clue, but apart from that, very logical. $\endgroup$ – zlobi.wan.kenobi May 6 '15 at 19:30
