He tries to stop the fight but Tybalt kills Mercutio.Later Benvolio tells the prince that “Tybalt hit the life / Of stout Mercutio, and then Tybalt fled.” (Shakespeare lll.l.177-178). This dastardly act enrages Romeo and when Tybalt comes back, Romeo tells him, “Either thou or I, or both, must go with him” (Shakespeare lll.l.134). Romeo has decided to get revenge due to his emotional response to avenge his best friends life.
Finally, upon hearing the news of Ophelia’s death, Laertes is once again filled rage. “Hadst thou thy wits, and didst persuade revenge, it could not move thus” (Shakespeare IV, v, 145). In this quote, Laertes claims that even if Ophelia was sane, she could not persuade him any better than she is now to take revenge for them. He probably feels this way because he is angry that Ophelia has become like this, and blames it all on Hamlet. This could be a sign that he is becoming mad, since he is blaming everything on Hamlet without thinking anything through.
With deceit being used as a device to dramatise the characters and plotlines, it seems to consume the play. Shakespeare immediately uses this device in Act I scene I when Iago states “I am not what I am.” (1.1.67) This reveals two sides of Iago’s character, the one he appears to be to Othello and the other in his soliloquies to the audience. Iago is filled with jealousy and anger towards Othello for having passed him over for the position of lieutenant and is seen to feel no remorse revealing that he plans to sabotage Othello and Desdemona’s marriage by telling her father. “Incense her kinsmen, And, though he in a fertile climate dwell, Plague him with flies.” (1.1.76-78). Iago also claims that Othello may have slept with his wife Emilia, “It is thought abroad that ’twixt my sheets he has done my office” (1.3.324-325) however these claims lack substance and do not explain Iago’s true motivation for his revenge scheme.

Shakespeare focuses these conflicts on the protagonist Othello and his actions, which are results of complex moral changes and dilemmas. The transformation of the noble and romantic protagonist Othello, whose jealousy over his beloved Desdemona, destroys him. And Iago, who happens to be the antagonist, plants the distrust and jealousy in Othello. In Act V, Scene 2 Othello’s moral change has already begun and he is to show its lethal consequences.
Hamlet aspires to be like Pyrrhus in the way that he is cruel to his father’s murderer and is able to avenge him quickly. Furthermore, Hamlet feels compelled by both Heaven and Hell because he feels as if his father came down asking for vengeance for his own death even though Hamlet is unable to deliver. Though Hamlet thought about killing Claudius immediately, he also thinks of the negative consequences of revenge rather than the positive ones which puts him at a standstill, “cursing like the whore he is”. As the play progresses through the plot, Hamlet experiences an epiphany after observing Fortinbras, expressing, “Why yet I live to say “this thing's to do”, / Sith
The intense jealousy had broken the bond between the brothers and provoked Claudius to avenge King Hamlet. This depicts that love was not probable amongst the characters, but the desire to get back at one another was. Later, the ghost makes it clear that he is longing for the revenge on Claudius, and Hamlet must perform that action. This idea of revenge causing revenge appears throughout the plot and is one of the most significant themes for the development of the play. In the very beginning of the play, Claudius tried eliminating Hamlet's love towards other people.
Claudius possesses all the qualities of a villain: ambition, greed, jealousy, selfishness,dishonesty,tyranny. He does not hesitate before he kills his brother being driven by jealousy and power thirst. Claudius is an example of the monstrous-like people of the society becauseClaudius commits the biggest of dishonesty: towards his own blood. The problem with Claudius is that between honesty and betrayal he chooses betrayal, between love and selfishness he would go for selfishness. All that selfishness causes his life to lack love and that is what leads him to destruction.

Shakespeare shows a subtle display of symbolism with the poison Romeo buys from the Apothecary, which represents the toxic feud between the Capulets and the Montagues and how their feud just leads to death and destruction. The symbolic representation demonstrates much importance because the main antagonist of the tragic love tale takes the form of the star-crossed lovers’ family and the feud between them. The specific use of the Apothecary’s poison shows that hate brings nothing except for death and sorrow, similar to how poison does nothing but kill and cause sadness. By tactfully hinting at the symbolism, Shakespeare implies a message, which also comes across as a popular theme of the story, hate accomplishes nothing except causing pain to those surrounded by it.
