The fact that Alex loses the challenge in Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa and is beaten up by Nana in Madagascar and Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa gives him the impression that he is weak, but this is not true, because Nana only got Alex by surprise, but was more visible when in Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa he has a short fight against Nana. Alex is shown to have a superhuman level of interior physical strength, seeing that he broke the zoo's public telephone, and lifts Melman, Marty and Gloria with relative ease.
Role in the series
Alex is a member of the Shell Lodge Squad and was one of their first. In SpongeBob and the Hyenas Get Lost in Madagascar, he reprises his role in the first movie, but in this version, his savagery was because he was almost corrupted by the Villain League and Cobra into becoming a predator, but he and his friends defeated Cobra, the Leaguers and their Foosa allies, saving Madagascar and it's natives from slavery. He joined because he wanted to get off of Madagascar, but also to see what other worlds are there, and developed the habit of fighting evil. He is like the fun-but-cautious brother of the Lodge, and likely to win a talent contest if necessary. Alex and his friends can sometimes be seen outside of the SpongeBob and Friends series, and has been before the series even started, as one of the back-up allies to The Jungle Crew, even having his own series being made by Captain Leo Lionheart.
