Prince Hamlet’s inability to make crucial decisions ultimately leads to his tragic death, and that is what makes him a tragic hero.
However, he did not kill him, because the point that he is confessing his sins, means that after he dies, all of his sins will be forgiven and he will go directly to heaven. He prefers to wait until he does something sinful and wicked to then kill him, so he could pay in hell for all his sins. As soon as Hamlet left, Claudius said that he was not sorry about anything that he did, therefore if Hamlet decided to kill him, Claudius would have gone to hell anyways.

Prince Hamlet 's poorly executed plan to seek revenge on Claudius later becomes the cause of his tragic death. Death, the cause and effect of Hamlet’s revenge.
Many tragic heroes holds pride as their primary cause to his downfall, but Hamlet’s hesitation throughout the play is his key weakness.
