The champion of justice who died a tragic death. Hang Jebat was unceremoniously killed by Hang Tuah in a duel of honor that lasted 3 days and 3 nights. He ran amok after suffering a fatal wound from Hang Tuah's dagger 'Keris Taming Sari.' In the name of justice to avenge the sultan's hasty punishment against Hang Tuah for a crime he didn't commit, Hang Jebat was accused by Hang Tuah of 'derhaka' (contumacy).

The duel between two of Melaka's most prominent knights has left a permanent question as to the moral behind Hang Jebat's aberrant reaction against the authority and the conventions by which Hang Tuah exercised his conduct as loyal subject of the sultan.
