* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: Banquo gets his [[SlashedThroat throat slashed]] and receives "twenty trenched gashes on his head" before being thrown in a ditch to rot. To say that he was murdered is an understatement.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: As Macbeth sinks further into underhanded deeds and cruelty, even the ''witches'' look good by comparison. "By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes."

* ItWasHereISwear: Banquo's ghost. It doesn't help his case that Macbeth's the only one who can see the ghost anyway.

* BadassMustache: In keeping with the pseudo-Soviet style of the adaptation, Patrick Stewart's Macbeth sports one that would make [[JosephStalin Stalin]] proud.

* ProphecyArmor: Macbeth believes he has this near the end, thanks to the witches' prophecy that "none of woman born shall harm Macbeth".

* ProphecyArmor: Macbeth believes he has this near the end, thanks to the witches' prophecy that "none of woman born shall harm Macbeth". In the final battle, even though the odds seem to stand greatly against him, Macbeth takes courage from the fact that he still cannot be defeated by anyone "born of woman", and warns his opponents to attack him because (he thinks) he is unkillable. This assumption proves to be wrong with Macduff, [[NoManOfWomanBorn who was delivered by Caesarean section]].
-->''Let fall thy blade on vulnerable crests:\\
I bear a charmed life, which must not yield\\
To one of woman born.''

* CreepyChild: The 2011 Royal Shakespeare Company production changed the Weird Sisters into three eerie children--two boys and one girl. This made the Act IV prophecy scene especially creepy; the three played with dolls as they gave their predictions.
