In Hamlet, Prince Hamlet’s flaw is very evident when he states, “To take him in the purging of his soul/ When he is fit and seasoned for his passage?/ No./ Up, sword, and know thou a more horrid hent” (III. iii. 86-89). The whole entire play after Hamlet finds out that his Uncle Claudius murdered his father, he plots the execution of his selfish uncle. However, Prince Hamlet had the opportune time to avenge his father’s murderer but his recurring indecisiveness continues to get the best of him. Consequently, Hamlet’s over thinking and patience when it comes to making important decisions is what does not make him worthy of inheriting the throne.

Although the story starts out without indirectly discussing the murder of the king, we as readers can interpret that this act of violence has already taken place. The biggest question around is: “Who killed the King?” When the ghost visits Hamlet, readers and Hamlet become informed that King Claudius is the one who killed the king. (Act I, Scene 5, lines 39-40). This brings major tension into the mood and tone of the characters because now Hamlet has a feel for all the betrayal that is taking place around him.
This leads to many emotion-powered decisions to happen throughout the play. First off, Hamlet lies to and manipulates Ophelia in the play. Hamlet is on a mission to kill Claudius to get revenge for his father’s death. Hamlet commits to the revenge seeking of murdering King Claudius when he writes “So, uncle, there you are. Now to my word… I have sworn’t” (I.v.117-119).

He even states that in his confrontation with King Claudius “Let come what comes, only I 'll be revenged Most thoroughly for my father.” (4.5.148-154) Laertes does not do much thinking when it comes to avenging his father. The opposite is said about Hamlet who spends too much time contemplating whether he should avenge his father. They both were in the same situation but went about it very differently. In the final confrontation between Claudius, Laertes and Hamlet their colliding motives leads to the death of each person.
Banquo suspects Macbeth of cheating to become king and reminds Macbeth that his own son’s will become king someday when he says, “Thou hast it now: king, Cawdor, Glamis, all, as the weird women promised, and I fear thou played’st most foully for ’t. Yet it was said it should not stand in thy posterity, But that myself should be the root and father of many kings” (Mac.3.1.1-6).
