Tekken Tag Tournament 2
Alex (アレックス Arekkusu) is a playable character in the Tekken series. He is a palette swap for Roger in Tekken 2 and Tekken Tag Tournament, sharing his moves and win animations. He returned in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 but now with his own slot.
Alex is a cloned Dromaeosaurid made from a fossil by Doctor Boskonovitch during Kazuya Mishima's tenure as the head of the Mishima Zaibatsu. Alex appears to have been trained in his fighting art by Armor King. He has only made one appearance in the main storyline, being Tekken 2.
Prologue Text: "Both Roger and Alex are the result of a military experiment. Doctor Boskonovitch wanted to combine the genes from a martial artist and cross it with a wild animal. It is rumored that Doctor Abel has stolen Roger and Alex and is keeping them with him in his secret laboratory. Alex is a hybrid of a prehistoric dinosaur and a lizard, and he is also the result of splicing Roger's genes. There have been similar species on the Earth many years ago".
Ending Description: Alex is studying a rock that appears to have a dinosaur fossil in it. A dinosaur's face flashes on the screen and Alex roars and starts running, gradually gaining speed. He runs up the mountain and, having got to see one of his ancestors, happily jumps up into the air, putting one of his fists up.
A group of Alex clones appeared in Tekken: The Motion Picture movie. Kazuya slaughters most of them which scares the rest who turns invisible and runs away. One Alex clone happens to be in full on camouflage behind Anna as she is telling Nina off, that Alex clone quickly mutilates Anna as her scream is heard throughout the island.
Alex appeared as a costume swap for Roger in Tekken Tag Tournament.
Ending Description: Alex is seen playing "Rock, Paper, Scissors" with Yoshimitsu. His boxing glove forces him to choose "Rock", Yoshimitsu, knowing this, picks "Paper", he wins three times because of this.
Alex returned as a playable character in Tekken Tag Tournament 2, this time with his own character slot.
Ending Description: A lost Roger Jr. looks around for his mother in the middle of the desert. He imagines her loving face but then feels sad he can't find her; he still continues to hop forward wearily. Meanwhile, Alex is lurking unsuspectedly behind a nearby rock. Noticing the isolated kangaroo, he steps out from behind the rock, thinking he'll make easy prey. Alex springs out to attack him from behind. However, Roger Jr. is not taken by surprise at all, as he gives Alex an intense beatdown. Afterwards, as payment, Alex offers his help to find his mother by piggy-backing Roger Jr. After awhile, they find his mother, who is absolutely thankful to see him. Ecstatic, Roger Jr. jumps up in mid-air as Alex also raises his arm in accomplishment. The screen shows a vignette around Alex's face, whose epression changes to one of disappointment as he did not capture any prey. But nonetheless, Alex remains glad for bringing Roger Jr. back to his mother instead of eating him.
