Alph (アルフ) is one of three explorers in Pikmin 3. He wears a spacesuit with a blue lapel, has teal-colored hair similar to Captain Olimar's in shape, an average sized nose and freckles on his cheeks. His eyes are always open, much like when other characters such as Olimar or Louie are surprised, and he is by far the shortest of all the playable leaders. Alph serves as the engineer of the ship, the S.S. Drake, which his grandfather, also named Drake, designed. He is very sweet and innocent in character, and greatly respects Captain Charlie.

Alph is available as an alternate costume for Olimar in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U.[1]






  • Alph was the only character playable in the E3 2012 Pikmin 3 demo.
  • Alph's name appears to be short for "Alpha", the term used for the letter A in the phonetic alphabet. This makes sense as "Charlie" is used for letter C in the phonetic alphabet, and Brittany's name is similar to "Bravo," which is the letter B; her name's initial, A, is also the same letter of his prototype name (Character A), just like Charlie and Brittany.
  • Alph is the Technical expert of the crew, which is explained by his grandfather designing the S.S. Drake.
  • According to Brittany's fruit notes, Alph is allergic to the Heroine's Tear (a mango), and the Scaly Custard (an avocado).
  • Alph grew up with his grandfather, Drake.
  • Alph has 12 older brothers, a big sister and a little brother.
  • Brittany often adressess Alph as "Alphie" and encourages him in a way that implies that she feels protective of him, like a mother. However, some fans interpret this as romance.
  • Based on the way he controls Pikmin in Pikmin 3, and his equality to Olimar as an alternate costume, it seems that Alph is just as capable as using Pikmin as Olimar, despite Olimar being the more experienced of the two.
