Sophocles use of foreshadowing shows the audience what terrible things will happen due to Oedipus killing his father and marrying his mother.

They are all dancing and chanting, "'Kill the beast! Cut his throat! Spill his blood!'”(152).

The duo kill Brett, find the suitcase and are about to leave until a man hiding inside the bathroom attempts to kill the two. Though at point blank range, the man misses all 6 shots and the pair quickly neutralize him.

A clear sign of the gangs influence on Johnny was when he decided to prevent the Soc’s from drowning Ponyboy and defending himself instead of letting the Socs beat them up and have them possibly drown Ponyboy.

Here the author is explaining how shocked Johnny was once he killed the Soc.
This is first shown without Oedipus even being aware, when he kills Laius on the crossroads. He realizes later discussing the murder of Laius with Jocasta. Oedipus remembers, “I became angry and struck the coachman who was pushing me… and then I killed them all” (Sophocles 454). It did not take much to anger Oedipus into murder.
If up until now our discussion portrayed Hamlet´s intellect and his brilliant manipulation of the other characters, now it is time to focus on his maniacal behavior and its justification. The Motif of Madness is simple as well as complicated: Hamlet knows his father was killed by Claudius, and he has to obtain retribution, “revenge his foul and most unnatural murder” (1.5.25). Yet, the King´s crime must at all cost be kept a secret in order for his plan to function, so Hamlet believes that he has no other choice but to keep his resettlement to himself as a mean to an end: to vindicate his father´s killing (”but break, my heart, for I must hold my tongue” (1.2.158)). Thus, Hamlet is assuming his “antic disposition” consciously and of set purpose, and by doing so he becomes a hero, the avenger of his father´s murder,

There is a saying that says: “the enemy of my enemy is my friend.” But in the case of Macbeth, this does not apply. The worst enemy of Macbeth was in fact, himself. A great example of this is when he kills the noble King Duncan. But instead of sticking to the plan made by Lady Macbeth and Macbeth, he kills the guards out of fear that they would find out about him.
Then Danny abducted Patricia and her daughter Malina and killed both of them. The type of style of killing the Danny does is beating and then shooting them to death. HE would walk at night of the streets and find the victims that are easy and then beats them before
As soon as Tybalt executed Mercutio, Romeo’s friend, in the streets was when things worsened for the family. Romeo decided to go after Tybalt and ended up killing him. Later on in the story when Paris came to visit the “dead” Juliet at her grave, Romeo killed Paris.

VIII.
Macbeth is the cause all his own problems. A better than average case of this is after he murders King Duncan, and as opposed to staying on track, he slaughters the gatekeepers. “Oh, yet I do repent me of my fury, that I did kill them.” (Act 2/scene 3, line 107) Macbeth panics, imagining that leaving the watchmen alive will some way or another cause issues down the road for him.
