The [=MacGuffin=] is nearly always an object, while the Trope Trigger may or may not be. The [=MacGuffin=] usually has no other function except as the thing that everything revolves around. The Trope Trigger is defined by the trope it activates.

If a character with a Berserk Button simply flies into a rage when the "button" is pushed then it is not a "triggered" trope in this sense. Anger per se is not a trope. If the character's Berserk Button always triggers a specific anger trope (such as AgitatedItemStomping or HulkingOut), then that is a Trope Trigger.

* ''{{Smallville}}'': Several episodes required Clark Kent to become [[{{BrainwashedAndCrazy}} brainwashed and crazy]]. The writers handled this by retooling red kryptonite from the Superman canon, so that instead of having some bizarre random effect on Clark it always turned him into a sociopath. It got so whenever fans saw a red [[{{GreenRocks}} glowing rock]] they knew what trope would be in force for the episode.

If a character with a Berserk Button gets angry at any minor provocation then it is not a "triggered" trope. If there is a particular trigger that ''always'' pushes a character's Berserk Button (e.g. an obnoxious brother or the color red), then that is a Trope Trigger.

arrative Device. A trope for handling tropes. If an author has a trope that turns out to be popular, or that he plans to use frequently, he writes a Trope Trigger into the storyline so that whenever he needs the "triggered" trope he just drops in an instance of the Trope Trigger. Depending on the form of the trigger, it might be used for {{Foreshadowing}}: when the audience sees the trigger, they know the "triggered" trope can't be far away.
