Berserk Button / Let's Play

Go To

When a nice, normal character suddenly goes into a rage, you've hit his/her Berserk Button.

  • Jacksepticeye hates Billy from Happy Wheels, to the point that "Screw you, Billy!" became one of his many Catch Phrases.
    • Don't ever dare to question his bossness.
    • He gets mad when people post irrelevant comments, especially to complain about him not playing more Undertale.
    • The constant circular conversations with the Cleverbot AI, due to the general lack of context recognition and poor response matching.
    • He hates the "FUCKIN' SNOWPLOWS" on Turbo Dismount, mainly because they always seem to mess up his flow.
  • Don't mention Vanish around Markiplier. Just don't.
    • Games with Some Dexterity Required or bad controls are also this for him, especially Surgeon Simulator 2013, I Am Bread and especially Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy. The last caused him to rage so hard while playing it that it's almost painful to watch, with repeated on-camera meltdowns (and you can tell that it's legit rage, he's not just overacting like he occasionally does) and him actually throwing his computer chair across the room.
    • Do not interrupt him when he's in the middle of his intro. This button is pressed in several Drunk Minecraft episodes.
    • Any intentionally-frustrating games or rage games will set him off without fail.
  • PewDiePie will go berserk at the mere sight or even mention of barrels, often leading to him Suddenly SHOUTING! the B-word at the top of his voice. Originates from his playthrough of the Amnesia: The Dark Descent custom story Abduction, where he would often accidentally knock a stack of barrels over, creating a loud noise which both startled him and alerted nearby monsters to his location.
  • Low Tier God: Where to begin?

How well does it match the trope?
