If a person seems to get angry over anything and everything, they have a HairTriggerTemper. For the negative effects of hitting the Berserk Button, see YouWouldntLikeMeWhenImAngry. For the trope's opposite, see KindnessButton. See also TraumaButton. Compare and contrast RantInducingSlight and RageBreakingPoint, where it's a series of events that causes them to no longer be able to hold back anymore.

'''This trope is not about anger in response to something that would reasonably enrage someone, like a loved one being hurt or threatened, being personally insulted, or otherwise treated in a way that's disrespecting, because that is a reasonable response. Also, Berserk Button does not apply if the worst that happens is if the character scowls or frowns at the provocation. It's "''Berserk'' Button", not "Mildly Put Out Button".''' If you see such an example on the page, or were link here by such an example, '''please remove it'''.

'''This trope is not about anger in response to something that would reasonably enrage someone, like a loved one being hurt or threatened, having a loved one hurt or threatened, being personally insulted, or otherwise treated seriously insulted and disrespected, etc -- anger in a way that's disrespecting, because that those situations is a reasonable response. ([[DisproportionateRetribution Extreme reactions to minor provocations]] may still qualify, however.) Also, Berserk Button does not apply if the worst that happens is if the character scowls or frowns at the provocation. It's "''Berserk'' Button", not "Mildly Put Out Button".'''

In dramatic works, the Berserk Button is often tied to something important about a character; a particularly hated enemy, or a painful failure that hits too CloseToHome. Insulting the memory of a dead family member, for example, or pitying someone who insists "DontYouDarePityMe." If you're unfortunate enough to hit someone's Berserk Button in a dramatic work, being on the receiving end of a rant is the ''very'' least of your worries depending on the situation and the character.
