*** Just hurting children in general in front of Batman will guarantee a prolonged visit at the hospital for any criminal.
*** Hurting his [[BadassFamily Bat-family]]: Alfred Pennyworth, Dick Grayson, Barbra Gordon, Jason Todd, Tim Drake and his son Damien Wayne in any way shape or form. The Joker did this exactly in ''ComicBook/DeathOfTheFamily'' and even made it seem like he [[spoiler: cut off their faces and served them up on a plate, causing Batman (after saving his loved ones) to go on a rampage and beat the ever loving shit out of the Joker.
-->'''Batman''': "I hate nothing more on this Earth than you Joker ''nothing''".

* ''Comicbook/{{Batgirl}}'':
** In ''ComicBook/ElseworldsFinestSupergirlAndBatgirl'' Barbara Gordon is pretty temperamental, but don't suggest that she rules Gotham like a dictator or bring up family or she will rip into you.

** Disrespecting Thomas and Martha Wayne in front of him, even when disguised as Bruce Wayne is the quickest way to piss Batman off.



*** One story actually deconstructed the "kill a couple in front of their young child" button. Batman was pursuing a criminal named Angel Lupo for murdering his pregnant sister. While on the run, Lupo shot and killed a couple in front of their son leaving the boy in a state of shock. Batman has the usual flashback and is bent on bringing Lupo to justice. Then it's revealed that [[spoiler: Angel had nothing to do with the first murder. His ''girlfriend'' (without his knowledge) had his sister killed in order to free him of the responsibility of caring for his sister. Not that it matters, since the baby's father (the ''Ventriloquist'') guns down Lupo in a fit of misdirected vengeance.]] Then it turns out that [[spoiler: Lupo didn't kill the boy's parents either -- the ''boy'' shot and killed his own parents and Lupo just happened to be nearby when it happened. Batman's Berserk Button made him pursue a man who, while still a career criminal, didn't commit any of the murders in the story and led him astray from the real killers.]]

*** It is ''not'' a good idea to threaten children around him, especially if said child happens to be one of his sidekicks.
** Comicbook/TheJoker himself will become crazier than usual if you make a joke he finds bad or unfunny. Especially if you have the nerve to try and [[DontExplainTheJoke explain it]] to him afterwards. As well don't call him "puddin" and don't compare him to Batman, or [[Recap/BatmanTheAnimatedSeriesE9BeAClown he'll blow up your house]].

** Don't ever mention the [[UndefeatableLittleVillage Gaulish Village]] that still holds out against the invaders (or its invincible occupants) in front of Julius Caesar. You will find yourself in the circus - and given [[AncientRome the time period]], that ''[[BloodSport doesn't]]'' [[CircusOfFear mean]] [[GladiatorGames trapezes and clowns]].

* Speaking of the ComicBook/SecretSix, don't bring up Scandal Savage's [[ComicBook/VandalSavage dad]] or do anything to remind her of him. ''Just don't do it''. You'll be ''very'' lucky to still be in one piece if you make him enter her mind. Actually, that's probably the easiest way to piss Scandal off, given that she is definitely the most AxCrazy of the team and has a ridiculously short fuse, and being insane.

* [[Comicbook/IncredibleHulk The Hulk]] is generally a [[TheBerserker Berserker]] anyway, but anything or anyone that reminds him of his father is definitely in for a world of hurt.

* If you really want to earn [[ComicBook/IronMan Iron Man's]] wrath, steal his technology. If you want to multiply that wrath tenfold, use it for evil purposes, including harming people. The "Armor Wars" storyline is a good illustration of [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown what he will do]] if he even ''thinks'' you've misappropriated his tech, and neither enemies nor ''allies'' are safe.
