** A minor one by comparison; having the music continue when a game is paused.

Added DiffLines:

*WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd has several:
** Excessively long passwords, and [[DamnYouMuscleMemory using any other key besides A to jump]] are his two main ones.
** Games [[BladderOfSteel without the pause features,]] such as ''Film/GhostbustersII'' on NES.
** Seeing the LJN logo on a game cartridge has also caused him to snap.
*** Which makes it even more funny when he finds out that ''Spiderman: Maximum Carnage'' on the SNES, which he considers the only Spiderman game that is good, was also made by LJN. The fact that LJN made a good game practically [[GoMadFromTheRevelation breaks his mind in the most dramatic way possible]].
** ''GoddamnedBats!''[[invoked]]
** The Medusa Heads in ''Castlevania'' have reportedly given him a pathological hatred of wavy lines.
** Movie sequels that [[OddlyNamedSequel2ElectricBoogaloo don't follow a logical numbering system]].
** Games with '''[[CheckPointStarvation NO CONTINUES!?!?]]''' after you die. Turned UpToEleven if the game combines this with OneHitKill or only having one life throughout the entire game.
** Game cartridges with no end labels.
** In ''Batman Part I'', when he explains the utterly ridiculous controls of the SNES ''Batman Forever'' game, which was designed with the ''Franchise/MortalKombat'' engine. He actually seems to have strained his voice by the end of the review.
** AC adapters with built-in prongs (which tend to preclude the usage of the two adjacent sockets) also greatly annoy him, as seen in the Sega 32X and Dracula reviews. Related to this, ancient consoles which force the player to make use of an RF connector box for television hookups as opposed to just plugging a cable into a much simpler coaxial converter.
** [[LoadsAndLoadsOfLoading Loading times]]. His annoyance with them is most pronounced in the ''Superman'' (Commodore) and ''Zelda's Adventure'' reviews.
*** Also seen in the ''Batman Forever'' review, which ironically was a cartridge game.
-->'''Nerd''': ...Whenever you access a new part of the game, it says "Hold On". Hold on for what? It has to fucking ''load''?!
** [[MoonLogicPuzzle Overly cryptic puzzles]], such as in ''VideoGame/MilonsSecretCastle'' and ''[[VideoGame/{{Pitfall}} Super Pitfall]]''.
** Any game that has annoying design element that just makes the game more irritating to play--''Kid Kool'' is one example he particularly singled out, where he lists numerous design flaws (fittingly named "Seven Deadly Sins of Game Design") that blatantly hamper the experience, such as "One Way Bullshit" [[note]]Referring to the games RatchetScrolling, which can cause you to accidentally lose your method of attack[[/note]] "Topside Aquatic Ass" [[note]]A bizarre game mechanic where you have to do a mandatory jump by skipping across water three times, with the third time having to be ''perfectly'' timed or you die on the spot[[/note]] and "Two-Gear Diarrhea" [[note]] You can only run at two speeds, super slow or at uncontrollable speeds, and this also ties into the fact that the limited view ahead of the character makes it easy to collide into enemies, and some jumps require you to build momentum on ''very'' tiny ledges [[/note]].
** A minor one by comparison; having the music continue when a game is paused.
** If you don't think he can be overwhelmed by annoyance in how lacking in depth a game is, jump to 3:03 of [[https://youtu.be/lzt_uoTVAcE?t=3m3s this episode]] and note a problem at that point that got missed. [[spoiler:If you're wondering, let's just say it's not exactly a challenge to get a high score in that particular game due to evidence that the game is ''INCREDIBLY'' incomplete.]]
** Out of his usual complaints, games with bad controls seem to be the chief problem. Generally, he can forgive a game for having bad graphics, obnoxious music, or obtuse clues, but ''never'' if it's a chore to actually operate.
** Games with inconsistent and/or unfair rules really throw him off the deep end. ''{{Beetlejuice}}'' for NES is notorious for this ("Diarrhetic Diversions"), where you can fall to your death if the floor below is not on screen (the "Bitch Barrier") and yet can be hurt by torches not on screen.
** As seen with ''Dick Tracy'' and ''Total Recall'', the idea of going to the video store as a kid and renting a game that turned out to suck, since it was the one game he could play that whole weekend, thus ruining his weekend.
** Guns; specifically guns and kids. For his Wish List Christmas episode The Nerd was horrified by children's toys advertised alongside enough guns to resemble Charlton Heston's Xmas catalogue. Which makes sense, in an earlier video he reviews The Odyssey which included a gun: unpacking it and when showing it off he showed very good gun safety despite it being a toy.

* A few characters have at least one in ''SurvivalOfTheFittest''. For example, in v3, Darnell Butler has his protectiveness towards women extend towards being compelled to attack anyone he sees severely mistreating one, and Bobby Jacks becomes uncontrollable when called a murderer, causing a fight at the senior year's bonfire and, eventually, [[spoiler:driving him to murder Tyson Neills]]. Especially notable since this seems to be the only thing that can make [[TheStoic Bobby]] actually snap or get angry at all.

* WebVideo/TVTrash: Chris "Rowdy" Moore (the character, at least) has gotten pissed off at a lot of bad TV. He finally went over the edge during his review of [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy "Road To The Multiverse"]], in which a Disney styled sequence turned into [[spoiler: a stab at Walt Disney's rumored Anti-Semitism, by having Mort BRUTALLY assaulted]]. He goes into the other room to scream, and he comes out with a rant that makes TheReasonYouSuckSpeech he gave to SethMacFarlane just two episodes later seem MILD by comparison.

** Speaking of Magnus, he tends to be EnragedByIdiocy, but he truly goes berserk when anyone brings up the Space Wolves, and especially Leman Russ, who he despises.

* Several Website/DeviantART users have a Berserk Button. A very good example is [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Bart Simpson]] for Media Man.



* Go on, compare [[ComicBook/LessThanThreeComics Firestorm]] to his dad. I dare you.

* NolanNorth's presence in a game is something that will easily earn the ire of [[WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation Yahtzee]]. He claims to not hate the man himself however, just his voice.

* MSFHighForum: Fortunately, Mitchell (as an obvious example) keeps this strictly to real life, never letting it interfere with his duties as a GM. (Mainly, it's people who try to start R Ps over IM while he's working on MSF High, though he often simply logs off and cools down. He has gone into Angrish before, however.)
