Alpharad, or simply Alpha, is a smasher from Norman, Oklahoma who is most famous for his series of Smash 4 montages on YouTube called How to Play 101, as well as Story for Glory, Challenge Mode, and other series featuring a variety of games. He also helped developed the Melee mod Silly Melee which changes every character to have unique moveset changes and new stages, along with MagicScrumpy. He used to be part of the Smash streaming crew, Tourney Locator, until he left on May 4, 2016. Almost two months later however, he would be picked up by Panda Global.

  • Occasionally, Alpharad tends to not take local tournaments seriously, using characters such as Wario-Man during bracket matches or partnering with a random person for doubles matches. He also uploaded a video of him at a tournament playing by himself as Wario-Man in doubles.
