Gatsby's tragic flaw was his naivety to go back in time and restore a relationship with Daisy, despite not being of the same 'old money' social class as she was.
Gatsby becomes prideful over his success in life, and thinks that he is more important than other people who haven’t been as fortunate. He believes that his wealth would be enough to win back Daisy.
Gatsby's intention to win Daisy back and restore their past love was completely changed, because he decided to go on a ‘trip into town’ with Nick, Daisy, and Tom.
Gatsby finally realized that his dream of having an orgastic future with Daisy was unachievable, because Daisy would not leave her husband to be with him.
Gatsby decides to take the full responsibility for Daisy's actions and he is killed as a result. Gatsby's death is what makes him a tragic hero.
Gatsby's downfall is pitied by the audience, because it was something that could have easily been avoided if Gatsby had not fallen so deep in love.
