"Actually, Big Bro, I take after my teammate, Sofia"

Prince Hugo is a Prince and the best flying horse racer in Sofia the First. He dislikes that Sofia is racing and antagonizes her every chance he gets. He bullies Prince James as well. In the first season, he appears in "Just One of the Princes" and "The Shy Princess". In the second season, he appears in "The Flying Crown" and becomes a protagonist.



Due to his success, Hugo was very rude, egotistical and was a bully. He made fun of Sofia at every opportunity. He teased James when he helped Sofia. He was also a cheater, as he cheated during the race and caused Sofia to fall off of Minimus. The only person he seemed to like was Princess Amber, who adored him until she saw him deliberately cause her little sister to fall off her flying horse.

Hugo relishes in the fawning and admiration he receives from the other Princesses, mainly Princess Hildegard and Princess Clio. However, Princesses Arsinoe, MaeMargaret and Penelope never liked him and neither did the Princes Desmond and Zandar. The person he used to dislike the most was Princess Sofia. This is mostly because she chose to be his competition instead of one of his fawning fans like the other Princesses. While everyone else including her siblings tried to discourage her interest in joining the Flying Derby team because it was traditionally a Prince only thing at the time, his reason for doing so was because he secretly saw the little Princess as a rival because he saw that unlike her older brother and older sister, she was a thrifty hard worker who could commit to the training and who was just as determined to become a Flying Derby champion as he was. Meanwhile, Sofia herself used to dislike him because she regarded him as a rude and annoying cad and for the stunt he pulled on her during the tryout race. 

In the episode "The Flying Crown", it's revealed that his personality seems to stem from the pressure of living up to his family's legacy and the frustration at always failing to do so. When James sprained his wrist before the championship race, Hugo found himself paired with Sofia, and it didn't seem to bother her. The only trouble was that Hugo refused to work with her because his pride wouldn't allow him to be anything but number one, which resulted in him temporarily quitting when he couldn't do team plays. With a little help from his horse Electra, along with Sofia, James and the rest of Royal Prep, he competed in the championship, helping Sofia to win the race, thus securing the championship for the first time at Royal Prep, not to mention for his family. When his older brother, Axel, said that it was due to him that Sofia and Hugo won, he happily replied it was due to Sofia, showing that he'd become a much better person and is now friends with Sofia.


As the best racer in the Flying Derby team at Royal Prep, Hugo was greatly adored by the Princesses, especially Princess Amber, Princess Hildegard, and even Princess Clio. His true colors were first shown when Sofia decided to race. He, as well as Amber, told her she couldn't because it wasn't a "princess thing". Sofia decided to try out anyway, which Hugo didn't like at all because he secretly saw her as a threat. He taunted her at every chance he got in an attempt to discourage her enough to make her give up or anger her enough to provoke her into doing something that would get her disqualified and became increasingly angry when she kept ignoring him and did neither action. After one of Sofia's many failed attempts to finish the course, he tells her there's no point starting a race you can't finish and that she should go back to where she belongs: with the other princesses and be one of his fawning fans. When he tells her this, he almost found out her secret when he walked in on her talking to Minimus, but he was so caught up in making fun of her that he didn't even notice. During the tryout race, he purposely brings his horse to a sudden halt, making Sofia fall off Minimus and onto a haystack. However, both Sofia and James catch up to Hugo and beat him in the end. Hugo is also now disliked by Amber, who witnessed the stunt he pulled on Sofia during the race.

In "The Shy Princess", he is paired up with Princess Clio for the dream castle project for art class. Since he didn't speak in this episode, this was his first time as a background character.

Hugo returned in the episode "The Flying Crown" in which he is paired in the flying derby with Sofia and taught the meaning of teamwork. With a little help from Sofia and his flying horse Electra, Hugo learned to overcome some of his selfishness and arrogance in order to learn what a true Flying Derby racer means and because Sofia taught Hugo the meaning of teamwork, she turned his heart to gold thanks to her. This led to him regaining Amber's affection.
