An Overwatch streamer's attempt to get amped up for his competitive match went horribly wrong when his Dragon Ball Z screaming hilariously annoyed his wife instead.

Gaming on Twitch is a balancing act of entertaining and engaging your audience, while also performing well in the title that you are playing, especially if it's an online competitive shooter.

However, most personalities broadcast from home, so they have to be larger in life for their viewers, without disturbing the peace of those that live around them – something which an Overwatch streamer amusingly became an example of.

Streamer's attempt to go Super Saiyan backfires

Twitch personality 'thebaesed' had just jumped into a queue for competitive mode when he decided to get himself pumped up for the next match, as he was just one away from reaching Masters rank.

"I need to power up, dude," he told his chat, and began playing a Dragon Ball Z song to go 'Super Saiyan' – a move in which certain characters from the anime transform into an over-powered version of themselves.

Imitating the animation, he put both of his fists into the air and started to shake them violently, before screaming as loud as possible as the music continued to blast.

Feeling a renewed energy, he told his team "Let's get it boys!" However, his attempt to get "powered up" backfired when his wife yelled at him after being shocked by the noise he was making.

"Bae!" she called out, snapping the streamer out of his game. "Was that you!? Or was there someone at the door?!" she asked. The streamer admitted that it was him yelling and apologized.

"Why are you doing that sh*t!? I almost fell out of my a*s!" his wife exclaimed. The Twitch personality couldn't stop laughing at the unexpected exchange, and said, "Oh my god, dude. Oh sh*t."

The hilarious moment was a good example of streamers having to entertain their audience while also finding a balance to not annoy those who live around them.

Dragon Ball Z continues to be one of the most popular animes in the world. Originally releasing in 1989, it's had countless spin-offs and adaptations, making it an iconic property in gaming that many people still take inspiration from today.
