In Act 4 Scene 1, in regards to his plan to kill Macduff’s family, Macbeth says, “The castle of Macduff I will surprise, seize upon Fife, give to th’ edge o’ th’ sword, his wife, his babes, and all unfortunate souls, that trace him in his line.” Macbeth orders the killing of Macduff’s family as a part of his being consumed with doing whatever it takes to keep his crown. Seeking to eliminate Macduff after finding out that he has fled to England to join Malcolm in building an army against him, Macbeth sends murderers to kill Macduff’s entire family out of anger and revenge. By doing so, Macbeth sets Macduff as an example to discourage others from trying to dethrone him. By committing this act of cruelty, it becomes apparent that Macbeth is overly consumed with fear in protecting his throne, and feels the need to eliminate all supposed threats to his power. In addition, this shows how much Macbeth has changed through the course of the play.
Macbeth was considered a tragic hero because Macbeth had many people follow him he also had a down flaw that led to his death but went down heroically.

Macbeth thinks about his line of succession, and thinks to himself “ No son of mine succeeding,if’t be so, for Banquo’s issue have i filled my mind: For them the gracious Duncan have i murder’d” (III.i.67-69). This is stating that Macbeth killed Duncan because he knew his kids would become kings after him, and Macbeth didn’t like this. Macbeth killed Duncan for his petty ways to get what he wants and to become king. Being angry and killing innocent Duncan are a way of being seen as the villain, which Macbeth had been proven to be.

Along with him, another general of King Duncan named Banquo receives the prophecy of being the father of line of kings. Driven by his wife, Lady Macbeth (later turned as the Queen of Scotland) and the weird sister’s prophecy, Macbeth proceed to murder the good King Duncan when King Duncan came to-night at Macbeth’s place. After his evil deed, Macbeth is then crowned as the Kind of Scotland, fulfilling the first prophecy. However, Macbeth felt continuous guilt and worrisome, recalling that Banquo was with him then he received the prophecy, and that Banquo received one on his own too. Macbeth then decided to murder is own friend Banquo and his son Fleance.
His ambition for power soon conflicts with his morals as Macbeth does an incorrigible act of killing the current king of Scotland and taking over the throne.

In the play Macbeth, Macbeth’s fate is what drives him to his decisions for both power and greed. This is portrayed when Macbeth when he kills Banquo and his son because his greed sees them as a threat to his throne, killing the king for power above all mortals, and his fate ultimately leading to his death and freeing time. Macbeth has done countless sins in order to keep his rightful position as king, though his greed for power has led to him killing his best friend Banquo because the witches have predicted that Banquo’s descendants will be king. “Thou shalt get kings, though thou be none.” (I,iii,68) this quote that the witches say is their prediction that Macbeth will be king but Banquo’s descendants will be granted King after Macbeth. This leads Macbeth to hire henchmen in order to take out Banquo and his son in order to keep his power above all.
Eventually, all that caught up with him after they were planning to attack Macbeth. Macduff comes to fight, he and he is the one to kill Macbeth and is crowned king.

Macbeth attempts to stand up for himself by saying “I dare do all that may become a man” (Macbeth, Act 1, Scene 7, Lines 51)Their plan to kill Duncan was to get his two attendants drunk, so they would pass out and be blamed for the death of King Duncan. While Lady Macbeth is waiting to hear if Duncan is dead, her husband shows up with his hands covered in blood and with the dagger. Lady Macbeth takes the dagger back to Duncan’s and places it on the guards. Macbeth was talking about his hands being bloody and she said, “My hands are of your colour but I shame to wear a heart so white.”(Macbeth, Act 2, Scene 2, Lines 81-82) Lady Macbeth is feeling guilty about what she has done at this point.
