And so he goes to heaven, And so am I revenged. That would be scanned: A villain kills my father, and for that, I, his sole son, do this same villain send To heaven” (3.3.78-83).

Just killing Claudius isn 't enough, Hamlet must make sure that Claudius is being sent directly to Hell where he will suffer for eternity. One of the most prominent times we see Hamlet’s anger is when he murders Polonius, the father to Ophelia, his lover, thinking that it was Claudius.

After meeting his father 's ghost, Hamlet had to investigate further and see if his uncle is guilty. In Gladiator, Commodus kills Emperor Marcus his father because he was going to give the throne to Maximus. Maximus is very upset by this because he thought of Marcus as a father and decides not to honor Commodus as emperor.
Who on earth could have been born of hate from heaven? (Sophocles, 29) Although not by choice, Oedipus commits the most horrific acts of killing his father and marrying his mother.

Compelling her husband by giving him an ultimatum, be a coward or kill the king. Macbeth succumbs to evil and in doing so, betrays his King. You could argue that when he ‘wore the Thane of Cawdor’s robes’ he became a traitor like the Thane of Cawdor. His traitorous actions would have been met with death at that time. God's divine order is disturbed as Macbeth challenges God by killing the God appointed King and assuming the role for himself in his quest for power.
In the play, Antigone, Creon, the king after Oedipus, is blinded by his pride. He sentences Antigone to death for burying a body. In these two plays it shows how the sins of the fathers are being passed down, giving family members blindness and punishing them. The kings’ arrogance and pride causes them to be blind, resulting in the citizens and family members being affected by the kings’ behaviors.

Norman Bates killed own mother because he thought she “betrayed” him, and used her personality in his further crimes. The man was caught and his actions were revealed long before his death.

Kings four nonviolent direct action steps to change unjust laws can be used to analyze Antigone 's actions against Creon 's laws in Sophocles play,
Hamlet's overthinking and inaction led to several unnecessary murders. Hamlet knew that Claudius is guilty, yet he still wants to make sure, therefore Hamlet made a play that played out the exact way that Claudius had killed King Hamlet. Hamlet had done this in order to watch how Claudius reacts to make sure that Claudius is the one who murdered his father, “I’ll observe his looks, if he do blench, I know my course” (Ham.2.2.583-585) “Now might I do it pat, now’a is a-praying. And now I’ll do’t” ( Ham. 3.3.72-73), Hamlet says, as he is debating whether or not to kill the king as he prays and thinks to himself if he kills him now then the king will just go to heaven because he is praying.

The city of Thebes had come down with a plaque of sorts and elders were convinced it was brought on by the curse of the previous king, who was murdered. Oedipus, the Hero-King, summons the blind prophet Tiresias for guidance on how to relieve Thebes from the plaque.

I decree that he be driven from every house, being, as he is, corruption itself to us: the Delphic Voice of Zeus has pronounced this revelation. Thus I associate myself with the oracle and take the side of the murdered king" (168.20-28). Oedipus is telling the people of Thebes not to accept the king 's murderer, when in truth they already have. Since he is the man he is looking for, it is impossible to tell if he will go through with his word and kill the true "murderer" as he says in his soliloquy. The sole credit that Sophocles had given Oedipus is when he begins to piece the different stories together.
