Say you're dealing with a character who seems perfectly normal. They're a [[NiceGuy nice person]]; friendly, sociable, and well-adjusted, saving stray kittens and helping old ladies cross the street on the way to their day job of working at a soup kitchen. [[BewareTheNiceOnes But then you make a mistake]]. You happen to mention in passing what you think is a fairly innocuous observation, maybe pointing out that they could stand to [[YouAreFat lose a little weight]], or is [[HeightAngst a little on the short side]], or maybe could use a girlfriend or boyfriend, or you do something that you think is no big deal in their presence, like question WhoNamesTheirKidDude. And the character instantly goes ''ballistic'', flying into a screaming, frothing, sometimes [[BerserkerTears tearful]] UnstoppableRage, from which you will be lucky to escape with your life.

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 and MiseryTrigger. Compare and contrast RantInducingSlight and RageBreakingPoint, where it's a series of events that disables them from holding back anymore. If a person gets angry that other people aren't taking a (very unimportant) thing seriously, see SeriousBusiness. For things that set the ''fandom itself'' off, see FandomEnragingMisconception.

FandomEnragingMisconception. If a character dreams about their Berserk Button, that's an IrritationNightmare, although not all Irritation Nightmares are about a Berserk Button.
