* DumbIsGood: Brutus is portrayed as far-and-away the best-intentioned of the conspirators, but every time he overrules Cassius it's for something [[HonorBeforeReason mind-bogglingly stupid]]. Brutus nixes a suggestion to kill Antony along with Caesar. Brutus overrules Cassius and insists they allow Antony to speak at Caesar's funeral. Brutus again overrules Cassius and says they must advance and give battle at Phillipi, rather than bide their time as Cassius suggests. All three of these decisions are disastrous errors.

Added DiffLines:

* TheOnlyBeliever: The main interpretation of the play, as well as the opinion of Anthony in universe, is that Brutus is this. The conspiracy to kill Caesar, despite the fact that it's supposedly about stopping Caesar from overthrowing the Republic and turning into a dictator, mostly consists of power hungry nobles opposing Caesar because they want that power for themselves. Brutus, on the other hand is genuinely distressed at the thought of Caesar being crowned. Mark Anthony's line eulogizing Brutus is the page quote.
-->[[SympathyForTheHero This was the noblest Roman of them all]]. All the rest of the conspirators acted out of jealousy of great Caesar. Only he acted from honesty and for the general good.
