Baron Von Rocha is a character who appears in the Disney Junior animated series Sofia the First.


Baron Von Rocha makes his debut in "The Princess Prodigy" as the main antagonist.

Baron Von Rocha is the most famous Magical Musician in the Tri-Kingdom Area. Princess Vivian of Zumaria has seen all his concerts and she and Princess Sofia of Enchancia are overjoyed when they learn he's one of the judges for the Band Showdown. However, in truth, the Baron is a fraud who only has his skill with Magical Music because he has used magic to steal the musical talent of many people many times in the past. He does this act of Magical Theivery everytime his Musical Magic spells start to mess up. His latest victim is a songbird named Piccolo.

Baron Von Rocha first appears at the Band Showdown as one of the Judges. When Royal Prep's band plays, he is impressed with Princess Vivian's talent and gives them a ten. However, he messes it up the first time. This makes the Baron realize that his powers are fading in a way that runs the risk of exposing him as a fruad who has what he has through Magical Theivery and decides to replenish his powers by stealing Vivian's talent and promises Piccolo he'll restore his talent when he gets Vivian's. He asks Vivian to become his Magical Music student to which she agrees but only if her bandmates learn with her together. To get rid of them, Baron Von Rocha makes Vivian the star and gets her to adopt a self-centered attitude and makes selfish changes to the band. When this finally drives Vivian's friends away, Baron Von Rocha gets her to sing the solo which allows him to steal her talent. However, he refuses to use his restored powers to gives Piccolo his voice back. Betraying Piccolo proves to be his undoing. Later, Baron Von Rocha is confronted by Vivian's friends, who found out what he did from Piccolo, and overpower him with the counter spell with help from Merryweather. With his crimes exposed, the Baron is sent packing.

Von Rocha next apperance is in "Day of the Sorcerers" when he was invited to join Grimtrix's Order of the Wand. Using the power of a Medusa Stone, he took control of Zumaria, Princesss Vivian's kingdom, thus getting his revenge on her. However, he was defeated by Marshak, Merlin, and Wu-Chang.
