Alph is a character from the Pikmin franchise. He is one of the three main protagonists of Pikmin 3. He visits the mysterious planet PNF-404, alongside his crewmates Brittany and Captain Charlie in search of food for the hungry planet of Koppai. He serves as the engineer of the ship, the S.S. Drake, which his grandfather (also named Drake) designed. He is very bright and positive in character, and greatly respects Charlie.
Just like Olimar, Alph is drastically scaled for his appearances in the Super Smash Bros. series, as he is only about an inch tall in his home series.
Super Smash Bros. series
Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U
Alph makes his Super Smash Bros. debut as a playable character accessible via Captain Olimar's alternate costumes in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. As an alternate costume, his attacks and statistics are identical to Olimar's with any and all changes merely being cosmetic. As with other alternative costumes, the game does not acknowledge him as a separate character from Olimar in battle records and miscellaneous aspects, such as Classic Mode. The exception to this is the announcer, crowd, and character selection, all of which say and/or display his own name. He shares this trait with the Koopalings—the alternate costumes of Bowser Jr.—who are also named, but not acknowledged as separate characters. In All-Star mode, Alph can also appear in place of Olimar, and in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, he can be faced as an opponent in rounds 4 and 5 of Classic mode.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Alph returns as a playable character accessible via Olimar's alternate costumes. Unlike in the previous game, Alph is an 'unlockable' character. Once again, his attacks and statistics are identical to Olimar's and (with the exception of the announcer, crowd, and character selection, all of which say and/or display his own name) the game does not acknowledge him as a separate character from Olimar in battle records and other miscellaneous aspects, such as Classic Mode.
