At times he is compassionate like when he feels sorry for Helena. He makes sure all the young lovers are matched up. He even blesses their marriage beds so their kids don't turn out all ugly.

He likes to get his way and get his entertainment at the expense of others. Oberon quarrels and humiliates his wife, Titania , by matching her with an ass.

Oberon is also quite the ladies man. Despite being married to Titania, it seems Oberon has played the fairy field. He has had many beauties, including one (Hippolyta), who said he had "warrior love" .
