* ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'': ''ComicBook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'' showed the buttons of several characters:
** God helps you if Supergirl realizes you're trying to manipulate her. Also, until she got her mind back right after getting her Red Ring, mentioning Superman around Kara was a bad idea.
** If [[Franchise/GreenLantern Red Lantern Zilius Zox]]'s body doesn't look perfectly round, don't mention it. Just donít do it.

Added DiffLines:

* Killing a couple in front of their young child, the very act that first spawned the Franchise/{{Batman}}, is very much ''not'' recommended. If you do this, Batman will 1.) Have a flashback and 2.) Hunt you down no matter where you go. And then 3.) '''''Make. You. Suffer.''''' Like you have never suffered before or, you will hope, since.
** 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.]]

* In ''LegendOfTheFiveRings'', do not call Shosuro Yudoka or any of his subordinates a ninja. He absolutely hates that term, despite the fact that he's the Scorpion Clan's resident ninja master.

** ''Asterix and the Roman Agent'', in which the latter half of the title (a fellow called Tortuous Convolvulus) can create disputes and brawls simply by ''showing up'', is practically a guide to the characters' berserk buttons. Including Julius Caesar's ("GULLIBLE, ME?!?").
** Don't ask a Gaul where Alesia is. [[spoiler:Alesia is the place where Vercingetorix was defeated by the Romans in Real Life.]]

ME?!?"). He has a pride thing.
** Don't ask a Gaul where Alesia is. [[spoiler:Alesia is the place where Vercingetorix was defeated by the Romans in Real Life.]]]] Apart from Asterix and Obelix. Asterix because he is not immaturely patriotic to have it and Obelix because he is too oblivious to have it.

* ''ComicBook/{{Circles}}'': If you say any hurtful or hateful things around the people that Paulie loves, he will aggressively tear you a new one. Douglas even learned it the hard way.

** More conventionally, don't hurt her friends, family, or anyone else she either cares about or is actively protecting. She ''will'' put all her considerable training on how to make you dead to use against you.

** Additionally, when confronted by former members of Zebra Daddy, her ex-pimp's, gang and who are continuing to traffic women, Laura goes berserk taking them down. ComicBook/BlackWidow immediately comments afterwards that Laura is normally a very collected and deliberate fighter, but this time she was fighting out of pure rage. In fact, despite having [[Comicbook/{{Wolverine}} her daddy's]] temper, it's the ''only'' time she's ever been pushed so far past the RageBreakingPoint she's slipped into a acting out of a true, blind rage.

** She's also something of a WifeBasherBasher because of her own experiences as an abused prostitute under Zebra Daddy. She first came to the X-Men's attention under Claremont after she killed a couple pimps and Wolverine was accidentally implicated. During her one-shot she unceremoniously beheaded a pimp she caught smacking a girl around, and later in her first solo ongoing she killed a man in retaliation for murdering who she believed was a prostitute the man was abusing (she wasn't, but the truth turned out to be a ''lot'' worse...).
