Alpha 5 was a teenager-ish robot known for using the phrase "ay yi yi" in situations that involved any kind of emotion (most commonly panic). He worked in the Command Center most of the time, only getting out on a few occasions, and almost always obeyed every command and order that Zordon issued. On one occasion, he became evil by the forceful insertion of a disk containing a computer virus that rapidly spread to his systems. On Alpha's chest was a yellow stylized lightning bolt similar to the Power Rangers' stylized lightning bolt symbol but it was inverted. His head is always in the shape of an inflated hockey puck.
