"Look... you wanna know why I'm in that chair... and you're not? For the exact same reason why North is North, why the handsome guy always gets the girl, and why every spaceship in the universe is shaped like a cock. It's destiny, Rhys."
—Vasquez to Rhys.
Hugo Vasquez is a main character and one of the secondary antagonists of Tales from the Borderlands.

He is portrayed by Patrick Warburton.


Hugo is a power-hungry man who is often hated by many members of Hyperion. Hugo carried a fondness for Handsome Jack, saying that he would let him punch him in the face every day.

Tales from the BorderlandsEdit

"Zer0 Sum"Edit

Hugo first appears when Rhys goes to Henderson's office to get the promotion he expected. Hugo reveals he killed Henderson and now took over Henderson's role in Hyperion. Rhys learns that he is buying a Vault Key from a guy named August. While Hugo talks to him, Rhys finds out the meeting of the purchase using his echo eye. He leaves after he is "promoted" to Assistant Vice Janitor. Little does Hugo know that he ends up going to Pandora with his company car. He later finds out, apparently yelling about Rhys and Vaughn in Pandora.

Later on in the episode, he calls Rhys and offers him a deal to get back up to Helios and blame it all on Vaughn.

"Atlas Mugged"Edit

Hugo is sent from Hyperion with a moonshot and drives using his car towards Rhys and Vaughn. The car stops in front of the two and Hugo comes out of the car with a prototype of "the most advanced gun Hyperion has ever made", threatening that he'll shoot them if they do not obey to his orders. Hugo goes back to search his vehicle and tosses a shovel to each, forcing them to start digging their own graves. Hugo explains that he will bury Vaughn himself but he will kill Rhys and bring his body back to Hyperion for experimentation because of something in his head. After the two find a chance to escape from him, Hugo gets in his car and chases them, but fails to catch up as a Loader Bot interrupts and saves Rhys and Vaughn.

Killed VictimsEdit


Killed By

Vallory is very upset that the $10,000,000 Vault Key deal went downhill, and she asks Fiona who is responsible for it. Fiona can blame Vasquez, which angers him. He then tells Vallory that there's nothing to worry about, and that everything's fine. She tells Vasquez that he is right, and that she doesn't need him anymore. Vallory then takes his gun and shoots him in the chest, killing him.

In Escape Plan Bravo, his dead body can be seen, and is exploded when Finch shoots a Psycho Bandit with a bomb strapped to his chest. Finch then says that he has a few plastic bags in the car to put the pieces in.

Weapons Edit

  • Hyperion shotgun (Prototype)
  • Hyperion pistol


Rhys Edit

"Well to quote an old friend, who wasn't really a was destiny."
—Rhys to Fiona in the Vault about Vasquez's "legacy" (determinant)
