Hugo Andore (pronounced An-Do-Ray) hails from a family of powerful German pro wrestlers. Hugo and several members of his family were prominent members of Mad Gear for many years. After being beat up by Cody, Guy and Haggar for so many years, Hugo decided that the criminal life was not for him. He entered the third World Warrior tournament, accompanied by his new wrestling manager and former Mad Gear member, Poison.

His goal in the World Warrior tournament was was to find a suitable tag team partner. During the tournament, Hugo fought
Ryu and managed to continue fighting after being hit with a Shin Shoryuken. He was eventually defeated, and even though Ryu became his temporary tag team partner, it seems that he failed in accomplishing his mission. It's unknown whether he knows or cares about Poison being a transsexual. His design was inspired by the great "Andre the Giant" of WWF history. His first video game appearance was in Capcom's 2D beat-em-up, Final Fight (1989).

I seriously never thought one of the classic "baddies" from one of my all time favorite 2D beat-em-ups of the early 90's (Final Fight) would actually cross over to the Street Fighter series. My jaw pretty much hit the floor when I first saw Hugo in SFIII: 2nd Impact. He wasn't a very popular character back then, so Hugo's appearance in SF3 was a huge fan service for those who remembered him. Capcom set out to create a huge, clumsy pro-wrestler, who looks slightly off balance at times, yet compliment him with incredibly fluid animations. In my book, it's sheer brilliance what they did with this design in SF3.

You can make fun of this pink-wearing freak of nature all you want, but Capcom intended for him to be the way he does. Capcom kept his visual design nearly identical to his original Final Fight appearance, yet managed to fleshed him out further thanks to SF3's awesome art style. As the "biggest" big guy in the Street Fighter series, Hugo never fails to entertain the audience... and he's actually a really fun character to use if you give him a chance. I prefer his 2D form, but Hugo's SFXT & USF4 appearances aren't bad either.
