Macbeth can certainly be seen as heroic, as we are introduced to him initially by reputation and his actions on the battlefield in defense of his king. He is a tragic hero because regardless of what he does the audience continues to care about him. A tragic hero must also be flawed, Macbeth is flawed in numerous ways, most notably his pride and ambition.
