Achilles struggles to get a grasp on the loss of his broth Patroclus and takes all his anger out on Hectors body after killing him. Achilles convinced himself that his anger would stop after he had killed Patroclus’ killer, Hector. It just continued to enrage him further, as after every time he mutilated Hectors body it receded to a peaceful untouched state.

If he keeps fighting he would die and be famous and almost and be known as a great warrior. While Achilles is deciding what to do Zeus sent Patroclus, Achilles best friend, back into battle and he died at the by Hector. Achilles is mad. He went back to fight very angry. Achilles did not go for his glory this time.
Achilles also stated “if destiny like his awaits me, I shall rest when I have fallen” meaning he doesn’t care about whatever happens to him in the battle with Hector, but just as long as he shows his participation and grief. When Hector and Achilles faced each other he had great determination into killing his foe in spite of his best friend, twirling his shaft twice at Hector killing him.

The great Achaean warrior Achilles posses all the traits of hero, “valor”, strength, skill, and a quest. Achilles quest is what sets him apart, for its not like most heros, who fight for glory, riches, honor or to protect. He is fueled by rage and hatred and only seeks vengeance. It is this rage that causes Achilles to disregard Hektors plea to return his body “No more entreating of me, you dog, by knees or parents”. This vengeance is for his dear friend Patroklos, who Hektor killed.
What made Achilles such an honorable hero was the fact that he fought for his own pride, not the desire to conquer the war. Although throughout the war, Achilles character flaws impede his ability to fight and act with integrity. His insurmountable rage is the epitome of these flaws, showing vibrantly through his rage for Agamemnon and ultimately destroying his integrity. His never ending lust for glory is the reason why his rage surmounts from a poisoned pride, which is his real Achilles’ heel. This arrogance leads him to becoming slightly obsessed with retaining his pride and not letting anyone slight his bravado.
But a father. He is worried yes but also he may feel as though Achilles would be a man of understanding as he is in the same position when he lost his Son, Neoptolemus. Achilles feels that if Hector can kill Patroclus' then Hector does not deserve to live. When Somax reminisces about the death of his second son he remembers that he "was beside [him] self. [He] felt like punching her where she stood" He then continues without question to berate Achilles based on the way he dealt with Patroclus' death.
Also, The Iliad ended with Hector’s funeral and the grief of the Trojans. Hector seems to put war aside when it comes to his family and devote his attention and love to his family. As for Achilles, his only family is his mother, Thetis, and his only close friend is Patroclus. Achilles only goes to his mother to whine about a situation not going well for him. Later on Hector killed his close friend Patroclus, and Achilles seeks revenge on Hector.
To begin with, the battle between the Montague’s and Capulet’s caused the death of Mercutio and Tybalt. To illustrate the point, Tybalt killed Mercutio because he was close to the Montagues, which he despised, and Mercutio had challenged him to a duel. Before Mercutio died in 3.1 he exclaimed, “A plague a both your houses!” meaning that the fight between the two families are like a plague where there’s no benefit (3.1. line 106). This implies that Mercutio felt that he was caught up between the everlasting feuds between the two families and he wanted no other innocent people to die from this conflict between the two families, therefore shouted out this fraise. In addition, in 3.1 Romeo murdered Tybalt to avenge the death of Mercutio by saying “Either thou or I, or both, must go with him.” (3.1. line 129).
Macbeth, after becoming King and plunging further and further into evil, orders for Banquo to be killed, as in the mind of Macbeth, Banquo has gone from his dearest friend to it being that, “There is none but he/ Whose being I fear” (3.1.54-55). At the end of the play, the men he once called his comrades, his countrymen, are the once turned against him. Instead of being surrounded by troops of friends, he is surrounded by troops of enemies (Barnet xxxi). The ones that still did stick by his side were not his true friends though, as they were just, “constrained things/ Whose hearts are absent too” (5.4.13-14). In the end
Romeo refused to duel with Tybalt which made Mercutio to feel honour bound to stand in Romeo’s place and fight. In the duel that ensued, Mercutio is slain and dies. Romeo was enraged and felt honour bound to avenge the death of friend Mercutio. He sought Tybalt and killed him in a duel. The prince of Verona, when he heard about this, banished Romeo from the city of Verona.
