A hilarious, courageous yet naive fool. He's an important part of the plot, being Titania's temporary boyfriend and the 'overactor' of the group of workmen! He's a pretty funny guy! :)

Bottom is a buffoon, but he is also touching. He does not seem cruel or rude. He is funny mostly because he is sweet. I think he does not really fit into the mechanicals in that way. He is more sensitive. He does just go with the flow, but he is also reflective.

He's trying so hard to put it all together and bring a refined performance out of a group of actors that haven't got a chance of doing anything serious with any degree of class. Obviously, the role was written with the intent of making him comic relief, but there is still a very earnest and good core in his character's soul.
