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).
