Creon was told exactly what would happen if he did not undo his actions now he did but when he was first presented with the prophecy he rejected it and in doing so disrespected the gods so then the prophecy was fulfilled. This is another reason why Creon is the tragic hero. To sum up, Creon is the tragic hero of antigone. Creon is the tragic hero of Antigone because Through Creon 's strong pride he brings doom upon himself and his family.
He was unexcpectedly thrust into this role of authority and now has a lot of pressure on him. With his newfound power, he issues a decree outlawing burials for traitors. Once his own family member, Antigone commits this crime, he decides that he must punish her just as he would anyone else, and that is final. Here he shows his tragic flaw, stubborness. He also shows this when his son Haemon begs him not to sentence her to death, because he will not change his mind no matter what.

However, the Capulet family did not know of the secret relationship and wanted to put Romeo to his death. Tybalt 's death affected each member of the Capulet family and moved the plot closer to its tragic ending. As Tybalt 's legacy, Romeo was exiled from Verona, and for a time, could not see Juliet anymore.
As the play opens Oedipus is of noble birth and shows goodness. Oedipus is of the noble name the king. When the play states “I Oedipus, your world-renowned king”(Sophocles 1). Also when the play states, “O child of Laius ' ill-starred race” (43). This shows that he is of the noble name because he is king Laius son, also he announces that he is the king.
If Tybalt had not killed Mercutio, Romeo would not have gotten upset with Tybalt. When people found out about Tybalt being killed by Romeo, the Prince banished him from Verona.

These are my reasons on why Tybalt should also be to blame for the two
Romeo 's impulsive behavior and perilous love for Juliet proved to be fatal for both of them. If he had been loyal to the Montague family, and resisted his risky love for Juliet, he would have saved both of their lives. In addition, his extreme, unbridled passion for Juliet put both of them in danger. Even though Romeo was primarily responsible for their deaths and others, Friar also contributed to the deaths of both Romeo and Juliet. By allowing Romeo’s persuasive words and undying passion for Juliet to persuade him to go along with the wedding, he put them both in a risky situation which led to their demise.
