** He despises Claudius for murdering his father, but whereas Claudius only commits one murder for personal advancement (his planned murder of Hamlet once he becomes too problematic aside) and spends the remainder of the play feeling guilty about it, Hamlet kills several people who are only tangentially involved in what's going on and doesn't feel the least bit sorry about it.

* WritersCannotDoMath: Leading to problems with calculating his age. While he is a student (which at the time wouldn't have put him past his late teens or early twenties), the gravedigger indirectly mentions that he is about thirty. [[AgeLift Real-life casting issues]] may have played a role here.

Added DiffLines:
* AmbiguousDisorder: Whole plays and college courses have been written based on Hamlet's bipolar disorder. HairTriggerTemper and over-talkativeness during his manic episodes, and anguished soliloquies during his depressed ones.

Moving to discussion
* MoralDissonance: Averted. They are spies for Claudius making it perfectly obvious why no one in their right mind should feel sorry for them. * PerspectiveFlip: ''RosencrantzAndGuildensternAreDead''.

* MoralDissonance: They're not bad people, they're just a couple of sycophants who are ''really'' (and obliviously) in over their heads. [[KickTheDog Hamlet has both of them]] '''[[DisproportionateRetribution murdered.]]''' And you're not supposed to feel sorry for them.
