"The Alpha is a physical manifestation of the final consciousness of test subjects who died while connected to the STEM, combined into one single, horrific shape. It attacks anything that moves, any attempts to flee from it leads to certain death."
―Model Viewer description.

The Amalgam Alpha is an enemy boss encountered in The Evil Within and The Executioner DLC. 

DescriptionEdit

The Amalgam Alpha is a massive and grotesque mishmash of multiple corpses, some disfigured some intact, some of which are still vaguely conscious about their current state. The creature stands almost 4 meters tall and has huge limbs that can squash flat an adult human in one hit. Upon taking enough damage, the Amalgam Alpha can flip over and reveal a large vertical maw that can swallow most preys with relative ease.

It has an eye stalk that it uses to scan its surroundings, which also serves as a weak spot along with another one inside its maw.

PlotEdit

The Evil WithinEdit

The Amalgam Alpha is first encountered at the end of Chapter 8, where it suddenly appears behind Sebastian while the detective was heading towards the exit. It immediately chases him through the corridor until he somehow reaches Safe Haven and slams the door in its face, whereupon it promptly vanishes.

The Amalgam Alpha is not seen again until Chapter 10. After Marcelo Jimenez attempts to connect Leslie Withers to STEM in order to find a way out the mindscape, his actions drew Ruvik's attention and the Amalgam is summoned in the chamber. Although Sebastian and Leslie managed to evade the beast, it succeeded in crushing a hysterical Jimenez before hurling Sebastian into an underground car park where it engages him in a final battle.

The ExecutionerEdit

The Amalgam Alpha, a.k.a. Subject CB-210 is the second-to-last boss that Pedro Martin must fight as The Keeper. It is found in the same car park where it is fought in the main game, and endless hordes of The Haunted will spawn in to assist it in attacking the player, though the creature completely disregards their safety and will gladly plow through them to reach the Keeper.

Tips Edit

The Evil WithinEdit

  • Snipe as much as one's ammo stock allows for. The Amalgam Alpha is especially vulnerable against a sniping Sebastian. Simply hide behind a large pillar and take potshots at the creature. Shooting its eye will stun it for a short period, where one follow up shot will severely damage it (don't fire more than once, as this gives away Sebastian's location). Repeat this once to send the boss into phase 2, at which point the "FreezeMagnum" (i.e. one Freeze bolt followed by one to three Magnum shots) combo can be pulled off to decimate it in moments.

The ExecutionerEdit

  • Use either the Rocket Launcher or the cars littered around the yard against the creature. If one manages to reflect a car back at the Amalgam Alpha, the creature will be stunned enough to get in one to four quick melee attacks. The Sword can be used to take off huge chunks of its health in rapid succession.

Death AnimationsEdit

  • If the Amalgam Alpha manages to catch up to Sebastian during the hallway chase in Chapter 8, the creature will smash him flat with its oversized right hand. As Sebastian has infinite stamina during this chase, one must purposefully allow the creature to catch up to see this scene.
  • If Sebastian is caught when the Amalgam Alpha is in its "flipped" state, the creature will swallow him whole with its gigantic maw.
  • If Sebastian hides under a car and the Amalgam Alpha sees him doing it, the creature will pound the car flat to crush him.

TriviaEdit

  • Despite its name hinting at it being either a leader of a pack, no lesser Amalgam creatures ever appear in either the game or its DLCs.
    • "Alpha" could alternatively refer to it being the first, mechanically-sound but far from complete model of its kind, however, which seems appropriate judging by its malformed and sloppy appearance. This is somewhat supported by how the creature is simply referred to as "Amalgam" after merging with its creator, as it is technically complete by that point.
  • In The Executioner, the Amalgam Alpha's appearance is slightly different from the version encountered in the campaign. The front of the creature is flipped upside down.
    • If its subject transcript in the DLC is any indication, the Amalgam Alpha is effectively blind. Its "eye" serves as a rudimentary radar of sorts that it uses to detect the thoughts of its preys before homing in on that source and assimilating it into its mass.
    • The Amalgam Alpha is the only boss absent from the Hidden Execution chamber.
