* BecauseDestinySaysSo: ''Oedipus the King''

* DrivenToSuicide: Ajax, Antigone, Jocasta, Deianeira.



* SelfFulfillingProphecy: Trying to prevent the prophecy that their son will kill his father and marry his mother, Laios and Jocasta order that he be abandoned in the wild. But the baby is saved, and he not knowing his parents (nor they knowing him) is, of course, the set-up that makes the prophecy actually come true.
** It's worse than that. Oedipus, unaware that he is adopted, visits an oracle and is told that he will kill his father. He immediately flees from his parents so that he can't possibly kill his (adopted) father... and runs into Laios on the road where they get into a fight...
* YouCantFightFate: The measures Oedipus' parents take to prevent the prophecy from coming true are in vain.
