* NiceJobFixingItVillain: The murderers successfully kill Banquo, but Fleance escapes, which makes the Witches' prophecy to Banquo that "he shall get kings, though thou be none" more ominous when Macbeth asks if Banquo's descendants will ever reign, followed by a train of ghosts whose appearances resemble Banquo's future descendants.

** Whatever happened to Banquo's son, Fleance? It was hinted by the witches that he would become king, but he flees from some murderers at one point and never returns.
*** Some theorize that this is actually very grim foreshadowing that the events of the play are doomed to repeat themselves.

returns despite the events claim of the play are doomed witches that his father's descendants would rule. Although this was undoubtedly meant as a reference to repeat themselves.King James (as he was supposedly a descendant of Banquo), there is no resolution whatsoever in the context of the play.

* StealthPun: Interestingly enough, ''Macbeth'' has one of these ''retroactively''. After hearing about Duncan being assassinated, Macduff screams as he runs down the hall to meet Lennox and Macbeth. He's screaming bloody murder.

Added DiffLines:

* BittersweetEnding: Despite being named a Tragedy (as it details a man being corrupted and descending into evil and ruin) the ending is far more positive than most of Shakespeare's Tragedies, but still quite dark.


Added DiffLines:

* PapaWolf: A variation; Macduff is unable to protect his family, becomes his motivation for bringing Macbeth down.

* British immersive theatre company Punchdrunk created ''Theatre/{{Sleep No More}}'', a loose adaptation of ''Macbeth'' mixed with elements of Hitchcock, Kubrick, and other suspense/noir styles, set in the late 1930s. Audience members are masked and silent as they wander on their own through the massive 100,000-square-foot =McKittrick= Hotel and the play and actors move around them. Characters are lifted from The Scottish Play and mingle with new, more Hitch-like characters. One of the more popular theatrical adaptations, with consistently sold-out shows extending the run well past its initial six weeks. It's now been running for six ''years''.
