In Shakespeare's “The tragedy of Romeo and Juliet” Tybalt is responsible for Tybalt's death due to the fact that all his actions leading up to this one draining event. Tybalt was very angry all the time and had a huge temper, Tybalt was ignorant enough to ignore the prince knowing the consequences, Tybalt also came back to fight knowing what he had inflicted.
