AUDevil May Cry fic "Like Father, Like Son" has Dante exhibiting his demonically-protective side when he finds his son Nero injured courtesy of a police officer with temper problems, and when Nero is later threatened by members of the mafia. The second time Nero gets threatened by the son of a mafia head, a partial Devil Trigger sends the man leaving with tail between legs. And when Dante finds the demon Baul, who had all but put Nero near Death's door... Cue Unstoppable Rage and Roaring Rampage of Revenge with a dash of There Is No Kill Like Overkill.

In Lord of the Rings fanfics such as An Eye For An Eye or The Roots of Evil, it is a sure way to trigger Legolas's Berserk Button is by hurting Aragorn in any way, shape or form. It is the same with his older adopted brothers Elladan and Elrohir, who must have gotten it from their father Elrond. All four elves have no hesitation to resort to killing anyone who dared lay a hand on Aragorn. And those times when they found that Aragorn was tortured and near death ... well, to say it did not go well with those people is putting it lightly.
