The original Internet created by Tadashi Hikari as part of his top secret project and served as the launching pad to an entirely new, Net-based society. However, one day the massive amount of information it processed along with all the bugs caused by early, faulty programming allowed it to gain an amoeba-like sentience, causing it to take physical form and go on a rampage, causing all devices connected to it to malfunction. The resulting chaos (known only to the upper echelons of SciLab as "The Alpha Revolt") was initially pinned on Dr. Cossack's AutoNavi, Bass.EXE, starting the spiral of events that led to the advent of the Cyber World's God of Destruction. When Alpha itself was discovered to be the cause it began devouring the entire Cyber World, NetNavis, programs, and all. It was eventually sealed by Tadashi Hikari's Guardian program before being locked away by four TetraCodes that were later hidden around the Net. Wily would later organize WWW to release Alpha and initiate "Cybergeddon" as a final act of revenge against Tadashi Hikari, only for it to backfire when Alpha swallowed both Bass and Wily himself. MegaMan.EXE later defeated it, but had to sacrifice himself to save Lan after the last remaining fragment of Alpha attempted to swallow the young Hikari. Luckily, Mega Man was saved when it turned out that Tadashi's last program protected his grandson from Alpha's collapse. Thus the monstrosity was put down for good.

Lifting Strength: Superhuman
Striking Strength: At least Class XPJ, likely Universal (Comparable to Bass.EXE)
Durability: At least Universe level (Embodied the Cyber World itself at one point, took hits from a serious MegaMan.EXE and forced him to self-destruct to save Lan), it's armor is virtually invulnerable to conventional attacks, thus requiring foes to attack its Core instead, which is covered by a regenerating goo-like shell
Stamina: Limitless, doesn't tire as it's an amoeba-like creature and also doesn't experience the concept of pain.
Range: Extended melee range with claws. Hundreds of kilometers with projectiles and remote claw attacks. Universal with absorption
Standard Equipment: Its arms, a regenerating goo-like shell that protects its core, the only vulnerable part of its body, Machine Guns attached to its shoulders
Intelligence: About as intelligent as an amoeba, but can recognize threats and will swallow anything and everything it can as part of its basic survival instinct.
Weaknesses: Although it's outer shell is virtually invulnerable against conventional attacks, its core is much more vulnerable and can be attacked after the goo-like shell covering it is destroyed.
- Super Vulcans: Fires rounds from the machine guns it summons onto its shoulders.
- Break Laser: Fires a powerful beam from its eye that destroys whatever ground its target was standing on and all of the ground behind it.
- Alpha Arm: Its arms detach from its body and attack its targets repeatedly with its claw-like appendages.
- Sigma Arm: Fires an incredibly powerful blast of lightning in an extremely wide arc, making it incredibly difficult to dodge. The damage dealt increases the closer the target is to the center (and thus the epicenter) of the blast.
- Omega Arm: Fires an enormous missile at its target which explodes on impact for massive damage. If it doesn't contact directly it can still catch the target in an enormous explosion.
- Consumption: Alpha is constantly breaking down its surroundings for it to devour and sustain itself. This includes Navis, Viruses, Human Souls, and the fabric of the Cyber World itself.
