Tybalt Character Traits Character Traits Selfish Oblivious No Humour Not Understanding Spontaneous Irresponsible Irrational Impulsive Illogical Character Traits Every scene Tybalt is involved
in he commits to his various
negative characteristics which
proves him to be an extremely
disliked character. All of the traits
listed on the side are examples of
behaviour he shows. Uncaring Uncaring:
Tybalt is uncaring towards the Montague’s and some of the Capulet’s. He shows this when he starts the brawl again by fighting Benvolio. He is uncaring for some of the Capulet’s when he starts the brawl again as he does not think of the fact that his actions will affect the Capulet’s. Selfish:
Tybalt is selfish because he does not think of others but himself. In Act 1 Scene 5, he shows this when he sees Romeo and wants to kill him not taking others actions into consideration. When Lord Capulet sees that Tybalt is becoming frustrated that Romeo has snuck into a private party he simply tells Tybalt to calm down as he creating distress amongst the guests. Unreasonable:
Tybalt is unreasonable when he does not want to stop the brawl. He is also unreasonable when Romeo tries to stop Mercutio and Tybalt fighting. Tybalt then stabs Mercutio under Romeo’s arm and kills him. Irrational:
Tybalt is very irrational when he doesn’t listen to Benvolio in Act 1 Scene 1. He is irrational when he doesn’t understand what Lord Capulet is saying at the party and the reason in which he asks Tybalt to ignore Romeo’s attendance. He is also irrational when he doesn’t listen to Romeo and he stabs Mercutio. Impulsive:
He acts on impulse all the time and never thinks things through. In Act 1 Scene 1 he started the brawl again with Benvolio, and then the Prince yells at them. Also when he stabs Mercutio, he doesn’t think and hence causes Romeo to kill him. Character Traits Illogical:
In many cases Tybalt is very illogical. He doesn’t have clear sense of judgment and really acts without thinking. An example of this would be when he re-started the brawl with Benvolio and didn’t think when he killed Mercutio. Oblivious:
Tybalt is oblivious to other people because he doesn’t think about other people and the consequences of his actions. He just thinks about hurting and killing the Montague’s. Not Understanding:
Tybalt does not understand why Lord Capulet tells him to leave Romeo alone even though Lord Capulet is doing this for the good of his guests. He also doesn’t understand the reasoning for others trying to break up the fights that he is involved in. Character Traits Spontaneous:
Tybalt is spontaneous because he acts on feelings and actions alone, he does not think or consider his actions. He does this throughout the whole the play. He is more than ready to spontaneously start up a random fight with Montagues and he does care that his choices affect others. Irresponsible
Tybalt was irresponsible throughout the whole play. In Act 3 Scene 1, he was irresponsible enough to start a fight with Mercutio which backfired by Romeo killing him. Key Scenes ACT 1 SCENE 1 (PART 1)
Two Capulet’s, Gregory and Sampson are in the streets joking about their hatred towards the Montagues, when two Montague’s walk past, they decide to insult them. Then this causes a fight. A Montague called Benvolio tries to stop the fight but Tybalt (Capulet) insults Benvolio and the fight starts again. The Prince arrives and stops the fight and threatens the two households if there is another fight they would be killed.
In this scene Tybalt is very arrogant, violent and oblivious to the effects of what he is doing. He gets involved because he is standing up for the Capulet household but does not realize what he is doing is making the fight worse. ACT 1 SCENE 5
At the masquerade ball hall in the Capulet’s house Romeo and Juliet meet and fall in love right away. Tybalt complains to Lord Capulet about Romeo because he is a Montague and he has intruded the party but Lord Capulet does not care. At the end of the scene Romeo and Juliet find out they are from rival families.
In this scene Tybalt shows how strong his hate for the Montague’s is. He cannot stand the sight of Romeo and wants revenge on him. He wants to be in control of the situation by dealing with it violently but instead Lord Capulet tells him to leave it alone. ACT 3 SCENE 1
Benvolio tries to make Mercutio return home as the Capulet’s are close and thinks there might be a brawl. Tybalt then arrives, who is looking for Romeo. Mercutio insults Tybalt and they are about to fight when Romeo arrives. Romeo declines to fight Tybalt. Mercutio then decides to fight Tybalt to defend Romeo’s honour. Mercutio gets injured and dies quickly. Out of anger, Romeo kills Tybalt and runs for his life. As punishment, The Prince banishes Romeo from Verona. In this Scene Tybalt shows that he is a cocky character and thinks no-one can hurt him. Trying to fight people does not work, it just causes more trouble. Key Quotes ACT 1, SCENE 1:
“What, drawn, and talk of peace! I hate the word, As I hate hell, all Montagues and theeHave bat thee, coward!”
(Benvolio and Tybalt fight)

Tybalt hates the idea of peace between the two households and refuses to back down without a fight. He continues to declare his hatred for the Montagues. This scene displays all of his personality traits, such as uncaring, selfish, oblivious, unreasonable, not understanding, spontaneous, irresponsible, irrational, impulsive and illogical. ACT 1, SCENE 5:

1.“This, by his voice should be a Montague
Fetch me my rapier, boy- What dares the slave
Come hither, covered with an antic face
To fleer and scorn at our solemnity?
Now, by the stock and honour of my kin,
To strike him dead, I hold it not a sin”.

Tybalt notices a Montague (Romeo) by the sound of his voice and he astounded that a Montague would make an unwanted appearance. He assumes that Romeo’s intentions are to make fun of their party. He then goes on to say he would not considerate it a sin if he were to kill him. This quote displays a few of his personality traits such as illogical, unreasonable and irrational. 2.“Capulet: Therefore be patient, take no note of him.
Tybalt: I’ll not endure him”

Tybalt’s uncle is basically asking him to put up with Romeo for the night and not cause a scene as he wants to enjoy the party. But Tybalt refuses aggressively saying “I’ll not endure him” this displays many of Tybalt’s personality traits such as selfish, unreasonable, not understanding, irrational, and illogical. ACT 3, SCENE 1: 1.
“Romeo: To such a greeting. Villain I am none;
Therefore, farewell; I see thou know’st me not.

Tybalt: Boy, this shall not excuse the injuries
That thou has caused me. Therefore, turn and draw”.

Romeo is trying to calmly convince Tybalt not to fight and that he is truly not enemy towards him, but Tybalt does not want to hear any of this and provokes him by saying it still will not excuse the so called troubles he has caused him. This scene displays all of his personality traits, such as uncaring, selfish, oblivious, unreasonable, not understanding, spontaneous, irresponsible, irrational, impulsive and illogical. THANKYOU FOR WATCHING The summary sheet will be handed out after this presentation.
