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, 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.



  • According to design documents, at one point during development Alph was being considered as being a full playable character; as a character, he would have been a clone of Olimar.[1]
  • He is so far the only playable character in the Super Smash Bros. series to debut on the Wii U console.
