    Hugo Andore

    Character » appears in 25 games

    Inspired by Andre the Giant, and therefore originally known as "Andore" in Final Fight, Capcom would later list this Final Fight character's full name as Hugo Andore, and include him in the Street Fighter III games as merely "Hugo."

    Short summary describing this character.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.

    Name Origin

    The name "Andore" comes from the unusual pronunciation that the Japanese have of Andre (they pronounce it Ahn-Door-Rae). Like other characters that Capcom have created they named him after a famous athlete; the wrestler Andre the Giant.

    Final Fight

    In the original Final Fight the Andore family was a group of thugs working for the Mad Gear gang. The Andore family comes in multiple forms, but can be identified by the different colors of their spandex. However there are many contentious issues concerning Hugo, as it is unclear whether he really is Andore, or just renamed as Hugo Andore.

    He appears in the game as Alex's rival. The rivalry between Alex and Hugo is a bit of a nod to the Hulk Hogan and Andre the Giant rivalry; as a matter of fact, the intro between Hugo and Alex before a match is a direct reference to the stand off between Hulk Hogan and Andre the Giant from WrestleMania III.

    Super Street Fighter 4

    Despite not being a playable character Hugo does appear in the Metro-City stage background among some construction workers wearing a security hat.
