Alph is one of the three playable explorers in Pikmin 3, bearing resemblance to Captain Olimar from the previous Pikmin installments. He appears as a playable fighter in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, being an alternative costume to Captain Olimar, instead of taking up his own icon on the character selection screen. Unlike most other alternative costumes, the game acknowledges him as a separate character from Olimar, with the announcer, crowd, and character selection saying and displaying his name. He shares this trait with the Koopalings - the alternate costumes of Bowser Jr. - who are also acknowledged as separate characters.

Alph is a young explorer who crashed on the planet PNF-404. As the engineer of the S.S. Drake, he feels responsible for finding the missing crew and the ship after the crash. Waking up in a pond, Alph quickly encounters a tiny creature— it's a Pikmin! A member of the crew that crash-landed on PNF-404. This young engineer is separated from the rest of his team during landing, but as an engineer, he's just as worried about their ship, the SS Drake. While looking for his crewmates and ship, Alph encounters some strange yet helpful little creatures...


  • According to design documents, at one point during development Alph was being considered as being a full separate playable character; he would have been a clone of Olimar, except with the addition of utilizing Rock Pikmin.[1]
  • He is the only playable character in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U to debut on the Wii U console.
