* Subverted in ''Fanfic/AForceOfFour''. While fighting an injured Franchise/WonderWoman, Badra gloats that she will go after her mother and daughter next. Diana attacks in a fury... and realizes she was idiotically baited into a dumb, reckless charge a fraction of second before being pummeled.


* ''ComicBook/RenewYourVows'' shows a world in which Franchise/AmazingSpiderMan has a young child named Annie. Harming or threatening her is a '''[[PapaWolf VERY. BAD. IDEA.]]''' ComicBook/{{Venom}} gave it a try. [[ThouShaltNotKill Spidey]] ''dumped a flaming building on him.'' [[spoiler:It also gives Spidey the HeroicSecondWind he needs when the BigBad has him imprisoned in a power-absorbing chamber. [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome No other super hero was able to break out of them until he did.]]]]

* During the ''ComicBook/{{Knightfall}}'' Saga, the Scarecrow sprays Franchise/{{Batman}} with one of his fear skulls and forces him to relive the memory of the Joker killing Jason Todd. Batman, who has already run himself ragged capturing many other criminals that night, responds by going into UnstoppableRage, knocking out the Scarecrow with a single headbutt and [[ExtremeMeleeRevenge beating the Joker (who's partnered up with Scarecrow) within an inch of his life]], [[PapaWolf calling Jason's name all the while.]]

* ''FanFic/CatchYourBreath'': During the Commencement Arc the second Spiral Zetsu taunts Kei while she's paralyzed on the ground and reveals that it is the one holding her brother hostage. Kei's mother immediately attacks in a rage, having overheard the taunt, and is killed by it shortly afterward.
* ''Fanfic/DarknessAnkhAscendant'': Naraku taunts Sesshoumaru with Rin and to a lesser extent Kohaku to rile him up, at least once. (It's debatable how many of the times are actually Naraku.)
* ''Fanfic/HellsisterTrilogy'': At the height of "The Apokolips Agenda", Darkseid taunts Supergirl with the vision of her cousin and her boyfriend downed by his hand. Supergirl attacks in a rage, but even though she fights bravely and does some harm, she is defeated.
* In ''Fanfic/ThePrincessAndTheRose'', Roman Torchwick has permanently pressed this button with Yang after the beating he gave Ruby.



* Subverted in the 2011 version of ''[[Film/FrightNight2011 Fright Night]]''. [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Jerry]] maliciously tells [[spoiler: Peter]] "You have your mother's eyes. And your father's aim." Unfortunately [[spoiler: Peter]] barely manages to get a couple of shots off at Jerry before things go to hell.

** Arya also has this button. Mentioning Ned's death is a surefire way to piss her off, and lands Cersei, Joffrey and Ilyn Payne on her KillList. After the Red Weddings occurs, Arya overhears some Frey soldiers laughing about [[spoiler: desecrating her brother Robb's corpse and Catelyn's death]], which makes her steal a knife from Sandor and stab them to death in hysterical, grief-filled rage, the first time she kills someone not in self-defense. And even though she and her sister [[TheGloriousWarOfSisterlyRivalry constantly butted heads]] in Season One, when Sandor is trying to convince Arya to kill him, the thing that ''almost'' works is commenting on "your pretty sister" and how he should have raped Sansa when he had the chance.


** Twice in ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows'': [[TheDragon Bellatrix]] [[TooDumbToLive targeting]] [[MamaBear Molly Weasley]]'s daughter [[CuteWitch Ginny]] results in Molly joining the fight shouting: "[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome NOT MY DAUGHTER,]] [[PrecisionFStrike YOU BITCH!]]" Then Bellatrix taunts Molly ''again'' with [[spoiler: her son Fred's death]] while asking what would happen to the rest of the Weasley children after she's through with Molly. Molly responds with "[[PunctuatedForEmphasis You -- will -- never -- touch -- any -- of -- our -- children -- again!]]" before firing a spell [[spoiler: that causes Bellatrix to have a fatal heart failure.]]

* In ''Fanfic/MyHuntsmanAcademia'', Katsuki Bakugou brutally chews Ruby out over her poor work ethic, exclaiming that she'll end up dead like her mom if she doesn't put in effort to improve herself. Ruby is furious over this, but Katsuki retorts that she has no business being a Huntress if that's all it takes to throw her off guard.

Alice is [[BerserkButton incensed]], and it gives her the HeroicSecondWind she needed to beat Bob to a pulp. That said, heroes should beware, as villains often use this as a means of provoking heroes into making a crucial mistake, such as getting a hero to leave their hiding spot in order to attack the villain, only to find that doing so exposed them to a whole bunch of mooks the villain brought along who actually know how to shoot, since they weren't trained at the [[ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy Stormtrooper Academy]].

** While it seems Draco has had enough time to learn this by ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix'' he insults Harry's mother and Mrs. Weasley in one go while Harry is holding George back from attacking him. Predictably they both pummel him until [=McGonnagal=] pulls them off. Of course this gets Harry, George ''and'' Fred,who was being held back by the more level headed Ron and Hermione, kicked off the Quidditch team so Draco was probably exploiting this trope to get exactly what he wanted.

* Former [[http://snapjudgment.org/texas-ranger Texas Ranger Bob Favor]] spent much of his career repeatedly tracking down a criminal named David Myer who managed to break out of every prison he was ever put in. They had a strangely cordial relationship, until Myer speculated that he could get leverage over Favor by kidnapping one of his children. Favor immediately pulled the car over and told him "This this between us is just the law and the outlaw. But if you ever mention my family again, I'll kill you where you sit." Myer seemed to get the message.

* In Comicbook/LuckyLuke Jolly Jumper is pretty much Luke's only family, even calling the horse brother most of the time. During a short story where someone (revealed to be the Daltons) kidnapped Jolly Luke is shaking down people at gun point for info. Another short story starts with Luke beating the crap out of someone in a saloon only to reveal it's because Jolly Jumper is missing.


* Film/DCExtendedUniverse: Threatening Martha Kent is a surefire way to piss off [[HappilyAdopted Superman]]. In ''Film/ManOfSteel'', [[BigBad General Zod]] found this out the hard way.
