Alph is a character from the Pikminseries, first appearing in Pikmin 3. He was one of the three explorers sent to PNF-404 to collect food for Koppai. Alph serves as the engineer for the S.S Drake, which he, Brittany and Charlie use to get to PNF-404. His grandfather, named Drake, designed the ship. Alph is a positive and very bright character.
Alph is a small male Koppaite, approx. 1.6cm tall. He wears a spacesuit sporting lots of blue including his light, gloves, shoes and backpack as well as his hair. He has an average sized nose and freckles under his eyes.
In Pikmin 3, Alph was one of the three explorers looking for food to bring back to his home planet of Koppai. He and his companions Brittany and Charlie ended up getting in a complication when their ship the S.S. Drake crashed and all three captains were separated.
After reuniting, the captains learned they weren't alone on the planet and began searching for Olimar and Louie who also seemed to have been on the planet.
Alph appears as an alternate costume for Olimar in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Much like the Koopalings, who are alternate costumes for Bowser Jr., Alph plays identically to Olimar. The announcer does, however, recognize Alph as a separate character, as does the crowd that can chant his name.
