Macbeth’s deeds set him on a path to commit more evil doings.
After killing Grendel, Beowulf’s men describe him as “the mighty protector of men” and “Edgetho’s brave son.” Since Beowulf defeated a monster that no other man could kill, Beowulf is immediately heralded as a hero. Beowulf’s pride and respect both drastically increase after his fight with Grendel. Hrothgar is the first to inform Beowulf of his terrible flaw that could potentially leave him in danger. When Beowulf is warned of his prideful nature by Hrothgar, he mentions Beowulf’s strength and how it is “in bloom” but reminds him “it fades quickly” Hrothgar pleads to Beowulf, “Do not take pride.” (1760-62). Beowulf must take into account how fleeting his pride
“The most famous act he’s ever done was smuggling Tokugawa”(need). This shows how loyal Hanzo is to Tokugawa. Many people were jealous of his position because he was at the highest spot of the clan. “Masanari was the ninja who made the identity of Hanzo Famous.” “Hattori Hanzo earned the nickname Oni Hanzo he displayed fearless tactics during his operations (Samurai Archives).” Hattori Hanzo earned his nickname because he showed his master what impressive strategies he could do. In his battles he displayed many good tactics for defense and offense.
Macbeth murders Duncan to become king. Macbeth takes a life to be successful. Macbeth is initially presented as valiant, brave, noble, honourable, loyal and courageous by King Duncan, for whom Macbeth is a general. Duncan receives reports of Macbeth’s heroism. Because of the victory, Macbeth, who is Thane of Glamis, will be given the title of Thane of Cawdor.
Beowulf was also unfortunate to have to meet some of the greatest outcasts during his time. The motives that make Beowulf the hero he developed into in the poem would be his burning passion to live up to his peers highest expectations, and to look past the difficulty of any task to take on the challenges thrown his way. Beowulf’s first challenge is the battle against Grendel. Then, he defends his honor by taking on a fight with Grendel’s mother. The final piece of his legacy is his battle against the dragon that claimed his life.
Odysseus must battle the suitors that have taken his wife Penelope, and may soon kill his son Telemachus. Odysseus defies the suitors and wins his wife and kingdom back.

He consciously makes the decision to kill King Duncan. He is also shown to know that his feelings and actions are with evil intent “Stars, hide your fires;/Let not light see my black and deep desires” (1.4.333-334). The fact that Macbeth is in control of his actions is proven by Banquo. Banquo also was told a prophecy by the three sisters “Lesser than Macbeth, and greater./Not so happy, yet much happier./Thou shalt get kings, though thou be none”. However, Banquo remained totally loyal to King Duncan never even slightly wavering at the opportunity of his children being royalty.
“Bad outfitted in his battles-weathered armor, Macbeth met the Norwegian attacks shot for shot, as if he were the goddess of war’s husband. Finally he broke the enemy’s spirit, and we were victorious.” (Act 1 Scene 2) This shows how brave Macbeth would be. He would be able to win any type of war. There are other quotes that can give someone an image of who Macbeth was and how he would never hurt anyone. “But if this is a good thing, why do I find myself thinking about murdering King Duncan, a thought so horrifying that it makes my hair stand on end and my heart pound inside my chest?” (Act 1 Scene 3)
In the 2016 movie Hacksaw Ridge, a movie based on Desmond Doss and his experience, the character Desmond Doss (played by Andrew Garfield) says, “I can’t stay here while all the other people are fighting for me.” While in Beowulf the reason he does his heroic deed is to increase his strong and healthy reputation for defeating evil: he wanted more fame. These two acts were both seen as heroic but they contrast heavily in reasoning.
