Macbeth is a Shakespearean tragedy following the story of Macbeth, a noble Scottish warrior who turns into a murderous usurper due to the manipulation of three witches, and heroic antagonists Malcolm and Macduff lead a resistance against him.

Original playEdit

  • Unnamed Captain - dies of his wounds
  • Duncan - stabbed by Macbeth
  • Guards - Killed by Macbeth
  • Banquo - Killed by Mercenaires hired by Macbeth
  • MacDuff's Family - Killed by Mercenaries hired by Macbeth
  • Lady Macbeth - Dies under unknown circumstances
  • Siward (Young) - Stabbed by Macbeth
  • Macbeth - Beheaded by Macduff

1971 filmEdit

  • Thane of Cawdor - Hanged for treason against Duncan
  • Duncan - Stabbed repeatedly in the chest then in the neck by Macbeth
  • Guards - Both killed offscreen by Macbeth after being framed for Duncan's murder. (Their bloody corpses are later seen)
  • Banquo - Hit in the back by the second murderer with an axe, though the first murderer later mentions cutting his throat (which is supported by Banquo's appearance as a ghost), likely for good measure.
  • First Murderer - Thrown down a hole into water by guards, and drowned
  • Second Murderer - Pushed down a hole into water by Ross with a stick, and drowned
  • Macduff's son - Stabbed in the back by another murderer hired by Macbeth
  • Lady Macduff - Killed offscreen by the murderers
  • Lady Macbeth - Jumped out a window offscreen (body is shown onscreen)
  • Seyton - Shot in the head by one of Malcolm's soldiers with an arrow
  • Young Siward - Stabbed in the throat by Macbeth
  • Macbeth - Beheaded by Macduff

There is also a final scene where Donalbain goes to the witches' hut, and what transpires next is never shown, and left ambiguous. It could be that he learned of their role in Duncan's death and kills them; though it is also theorized that he is following the same path as Macbeth and will usurp the throne from Malcolm. Depending on how the scene is interpreted, this means that Donalbain kills either the witches (the Bigger Bads of the film) or Malcolm (one of the two heroes).
